• 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...

    @larryashlynn said:Well, considering how low everyone's expectations are, I think this movie might just surprise us,.I think "everyone" overstates the matter a bit. The people who who didn't like Man...

  • roboadmiral posted a message in the forum topic Who is your favorite superhero/character NOT from the Big 2? on the Gen. Discussion board.

    Either Hellboy or Luther Strode. Tough to say which.

  • roboadmiral posted a message in the forum topic Did you actually like Nolans Batman? on the Batman board.

    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...

  • roboadmiral posted a message in the forum topic So...how exactly does one argue with a fanboy? on the Gen. Discussion board.

    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...

  • roboadmiral posted a message in the forum topic Anyone else miss 616 nick fury? on the Nick Fury board.

    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,...

  • roboadmiral posted a message in the forum topic Batman Forever really THAT bad? on the Gen. Discussion board.

    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 ...

  • roboadmiral posted a message in the forum topic Most Intelligent Comics on the Gen. Discussion board.

    James Robinson's Starman. I can't speak for the whole run (it's quite long, at the moment I only have the first omnibus which covers the first 16 issues), but what I have read of it is very interestin...

  • roboadmiral posted a message in the forum topic What creator owned trade should I get? on the Gen. Discussion board.

    Easily my favorite indie creator-owned series. The third volume, The Legacy of Luther Strode, isn't out yet, but I eagerly await it.

  • roboadmiral posted a message in the forum topic Who would you rather be: Batman or Wolverine? on the Gen. Discussion board.

    While I like Batman better, I would rather be Wolverine. You have to work at being Batman. If Batman just stops his absurd fitness regimen, he stops being Batman. Wolverine is Wolverine at a genetic ...

  • roboadmiral posted a message in the forum topic Is it racist to dislike changing a white character black? on the Off-Topic board.

    No, unless your reason is that you think black people are inherently inferior. Then you would be very racist, and it would have nothing at all to do with Wally West.

  • roboadmiral posted a message in the forum topic Are you okay with Dick Grayson using a gun? on the Batman board.

    I have no objections to him using a gun. I'm willing to buy that Batman doesn't use guns and trains his apprentices not to. I'm not willing to buy that he does it on moral grounds because his parents...

  • roboadmiral posted a message in the forum topic What's your view of the definitive Batman costume? on the Batman board.

    This is pretty much it for me.Cape, cowl, gloves, and boots are black, not blue.No yellow oval around the bat-symbol.Utility belt is pouches, not the metal Neal Adams cylinders.I go back and forth tru...

  • roboadmiral posted a message in the forum topic Justice League Movie Confirmed on the Justice League of America board.

    Well, I'm glad to see they're doing something. Man of Steel was really polarizing and seems to have split the audience 50-50. I was part of the 50% that really liked it. I'm interested in BvS and I'm...

  • roboadmiral posted a message in the forum topic Do multiverses hurt comics? on the Gen. Discussion board.

    I love the multiverse. I get a bit more reticent when the universes start interacting with each other. That's when things start to get more convoluted than is needed. I'm not a big continuity person,...
