    Terry McGinnis all the way. Unlike all the others, he's not a longtime apprentice. The job wasn't handed down to him as a matter of inheritance. His Batman was born the only way a true Batman can be-...

  • roboadmiral posted a message in the forum topic The No Kill Rule (i am ranting a little). on the Gen. Discussion board

    Actually, on a psychological level, killing is very difficult. It goes very much against human hard-wiring. Around the time of the Vietnam War there was a fairly big shake-up in how soldiers were tra...

  • roboadmiral posted a message in the forum topic Question of the Week RESULTS: Favorite Batman Artist. on the Batman board

    While I voted for Lee, I'm actually quite pleased at how close Capullo was. Often it seems in comics that we think the best days of our medium are behind us, that the masterworks have already been ma...

  • roboadmiral posted a message in the forum topic Favorite Movies VOTING: Batman Begins vs. The Dark Knight Rises. on the Gen. Discussion board

    Batman Begins by a country mile. Not that I didn't like the Dark Knight Rises. Even including the much lauded Dark Knight, Batman Begins is my favorite of the trilogy. I'm not saying that it's necess...

  • roboadmiral posted a message in the forum topic Stop Reading Comics You Don't Like/Characters Vs Creators. on the Gen. Discussion board

    The first article I don't necessarily disagree with (at least not completely) but it does very much rub me the wrong way. I'm always a bit perturbed when someone tries to chastise fellow enthusiasts f...

  • roboadmiral posted a message in the forum topic What could truly make Batman snap?. on the Batman board

    I'm not entirely clear what is meant by "snap" in this situation. I'm going to go ahead assume it doesn't mean the trite get-him-to-kill-someone thing because it's been talked to death with no terrib...

  • roboadmiral posted a message in the forum topic Who's Fanbase is worse DC or Marvel?. on the Gen. Discussion board

    I don't know that they're distinct and isolated enough communities at this point to be in true direct conflict and to be able to be contrasted in a way that can be readily evaluated. The increased fo...

  • roboadmiral posted a message in the forum topic Question of the Week VOTING: Marvel Studios Movie You Want to See the Most. on the Gen. Discussion board

    I voted Black Widow but I'm going to add an addendum here. I've been opining since The Avengers that they should do a movie with Black Widow and Hawkeye in the vein of Mission Impossible. I don't kno...

  • roboadmiral posted a message in the forum topic Why Diversity in Comics is Much More Important Than You Think. on the Gen. Discussion board

    Yeah, diversity is good. What do you want to do about it? They always need to give us more diverse characters, but who is "they?" Well, "they" are writers and when you talk about them as a collective...

  • roboadmiral posted a message in the forum topic Pick a writer to work on a character they haven't before.. on the Gen. Discussion board

    I'd like to see Mark Waid's take on the Punisher. I can't say that I have any idea at all what it would be like but it would certainly be interesting to see Waid step into Frank Castle's grim and noi...

  • roboadmiral posted a message in the forum topic What should I read next?. on the Batman board

    I'm noticing the conspicuous absence of The Dark Knight Returns on that list. I don't know if that's because you've already read it, but if you haven't its an absolute must for any and all Batman fan...

    I do like them. I like them very much. It was a wonderful time to be a Batman fan while they were coming out. The plot of Rises was a bit leaky but it was very enjoyable nonetheless. They made some c...

    Generally one doesn't. The core of argumentation is the providing of evidence in support of a larger conclusion or point. To the fanboy (or any irrational arguer) the conclusion is its own evidence a...

    This is my Nick Fury. Will he ever show up in the main Marvel universe or in the movies? No. It's their loss though since he's the most amazing version of the character that is, was, or ever shall be,...

    As long as you go in with really low expectations, you can have a good time. Well, for the action bits anyway. The talking scenes are wretched. For all intents and purposes, this movie does not have ...
