Not sure who Rutog is, but I hope a lot of folks like what I'll be doing with the Dora Milaje.

I'm Rutog!

 
Ya better ask somebody! No, seriously. Rutog knows more about storm than anyone at marvel ( I'd bet money on it), and is respected for keeping HEFF informed about all things ( and I do mean all) things Storm. That is why this thread is forty pages long. lol and that's about all we know!

Latest Flicks / Re: Agree or disagree?

The hype for Precious indicates a culture-wide willingness to accept particular ethnic stereotypes as a way of maintaining status quo film values. Excellent recent films with black themesóNext Day Air, Cadillac Records, Meet Dave, Norbit, Little Man, Akeelah and the Bee, First Sunday, The Ladykillers, Marci X, Palindromes, Mr. 3000, even back to the great Beloved (also produced by Oprah)óhave been ignored by the mainstream media and serious film culture while this carnival of black degradation gets celebrated. Itís a strange combination of liberal guilt and condescension.

Hold up let me get this straight. This guy thinks these were great films where these films had the mixture of the very same huge black girl in the film,  the "evil big dark skin" vs "good slim light skin", stereotypes of the black churches & gangs and finally with the naivete white character. And these films still considered "excellent"?



That's where I stopped reading. Meet Dave? uuuh no. Norbit really? REEEAALLLYY? What was the black theme in The Ladykillers? Would that be the two black people with significant roles? The f*ck?

 ;D Thanks for that Tah!  It's been a while since I read that batttle between Cyke and Storm. That hardcore damn near cold-blooded Storm always has a place in my heart. :D

I love that World's Apart mini. Especially where she fought the DM, and her speech to the shadow king "if everyone I love is in danger... I'll save everyone." hell yeah!

Black Panther / Re: Storm Solo Series Discussion
« on: October 15, 2009, 08:19:03 pm »
Question;  can you wrote a solo Storm series while she is pregnant/or with a newborn to toddler child.  Or rather could you write it so it would not be either a family title (like BP's book) or look like she is either endangering or abandoning the child?

No female character has held a solo title while pregnant or with very young children.  I don't think any male character in an ongoing series has been written with a very tiny child at home.

Cage?

I've seen her captured and experimented on by Brainchild all for the sake of the story.


Thanks for bringing back that bad memory, CKW. I appreciate the hives.

Vox Populi / Re: is 'white guilt' dead?
« on: October 15, 2009, 12:07:14 am »
I wonder...How bad is white guilt? Especially when it comes to say, a group of wealthy white folks starting an organization to pay for the education of underprivileged African American kids.

One of the problems I can guess at would come from the tendency of some people to believe that the "playing field" has been leveled once a minority has been the recipient of money, an opportunity, a pep talk etc.

Perhaps Godheval should be informed that the Vox Populi section of the Forum was created for a reason?

What are you talking about?

Guys, before anyone actually blows a gasget...here are a few things to consider.....


...

See you in February. I'm back on board.

Two questions.
Can we get BP to go Tri-Monthly so we can get to Doomwar quicker?
and
Can you add Misty Knight to the lineup so I can die happy with my top three in one Arc? She's not busy.

So Storm would tell him not to have a army (because they are a army) because they are female?


It's a female army that he's keeping from his wife. He could at least give her the heads up that their is a fleet of "wives in training" in the basement ready to whip hers and anyone else's asses for their man. Oh, and he goes down there when he gets pissed off at her. (BP #7?) I'll admit that I was wary of the Dora Milaje from the beginning though.

If I like kid Storm, I will stick with the title, if I don't like her, I will drop the title. I am not sticking around for the every now and then arc where villain, adult Storm shows up to threaten the team.


I'm with you. I also think kid Storm, and even villain Storm could make for very interesting characters.

This is why if I wrote comics I would not even LOOK at fan feedback. EVER.


I know I wouldn't be able to handle it, but I think that is a weakness on my part. If you can read feedback and still write without losing your soul (or your mind) you have a great tool at your disposal.

Quote
I get that some folks are Storm fans first, marriage fans second and B.P. fans third, but dag, the title of the book is still Black Panther last I checked, not Storm and Friends.

Moreover, in story Black Panther is a title than can be lost by its holder. So if TíChalla ainít Black Panther the story follows the person who is, Princess Regent or a Cop trying to make detective.


See, you act like people are asking for Black Panther to turn into a Storm solo book and that's not the case.  Shuri being chosen as the Panther when Storm, the Storm is hanging around and not being used is my problem. I understand that Shuri's been training for this her whole life, and there's an order, and so on. I get it. I do.

Quote
So JOB ONE for him is payback.  Heck, job one for SHURI as the new Panther is payback but she doesnít know where to look yet. How can you logically have Storm get that payback by herself without undermining everything the Panthers stand for?



I guess you use the same logic that allowed Shuri to be the new Panther over Storm.

I guess on some level I'm like those RO/LO worshippers who believe they will put Storm and Wolverine together one day so they snatch at the bones that Marvel throws them once in a while.


They have a lot of meat since Storm is being kidnapped and rescued by Wolverine. (LOLOLOLOL) Have you ever gotten news so bad that you just laughed out loud because you didn't know what else to do? I swear to God, I feel like somebody is on top of my chest and the air is slowly seeping out of my lungs. (Fellow martial artists will know *exactly* what I mean.)


I took that Wolverine thing with a grain of salt. I assumed they just through his name out there to attract more people when they really mean the X-Men as a whole. He'll be there because he is Wolverine. We both know that whatever the real meaning is the ROLO heads will still see a deeper connection.
I actually like when genuine friendship between Storm and the X-Men, as rare as it is, is shown. One of my favorite moments was in an issue of UXM (460 I'm pretty sure) just before House of M, when Colossus had just come back from the dead. The X-Men were getting into some kind of petty argument when Storm just flew down and gave Colossus a big welcome back hug, and that just shut everybody up.

Doomwar has my attention. I like all the players too. I'm not going to think about it until it starts coming out though. When I read about Storm's execution I had a couple of nightmarish flashes of "Rogue Storm" in UXM 147 http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/marveldatabase/images/thumb/b/b2/Uncanny_X-Men_Vol_1_147.jpg/300px-Uncanny_X-Men_Vol_1_147.jpgin that damned loin cloth. Only this time in doggystyle position in a damn guillotine like some freak ass fanboy's wet dream.

I'm a Storm fan. Not a BP fan. He's okay, but I'm only here for the Storm.

 
Let me correct that. Misty Knight and Deadpool are two that I like a lot, but Misty ain't never in anything. I pickup a Deadpool from time to time, but I wouldn't make the trip to the comic store just for him.There are other characters I like, and pay attention to, but not enough to buy their books.

Right now, all I want to do is get my admins/officers straight and get the f*ck out of here for a while.

See you shouldn't have even mentioned that. I refuse to do my part in helping you get your admins straight. Nope! Not doin' it. You gotta stay.

If he goes to jail do you think he'd be getting out before the end of his life?

« on: October 12, 2009, 10:39:57 pm »
I'm trying y'all I'm really trying. I stared at the last issue of BP for a full minute before I finally picked it up and but it in my short stack of comics. I haven't read it yet (I've actually been busy). I'm not saying Mayberry is a bad writer. All I know is that I'm not a comics fan. I'm a Storm fan. Not a BP fan. He's okay, but I'm only here for the Storm.

I have every issue of Ultimate (even wrote an Ult. fic) although I know that the white haired black chick was NOT my Storm. I am also reading Astonishing, X-Men vs. Agents of Atlas and Forever. THere's something in me that believes deep down that if I stop buying books with Storm they'll stop putting her in them. Maybe that's a good thing. I don't know, but I guess on some level I'm like those RO/LO worshippers who believe they will put Storm and Wolverine together one day so they snatch at the bones that Marvel throws them once in a while.

I think that I am more disappointed with Black Panther than I've ever been with X-Men. I'm probably not going to ride this Shuri thing out. I mean at least if Storm flies in the book I get some cool scans. As soon is Storm is actually doing something in the book 'll be back on board though. I'm hoping hoping hoping that when Storm finally finds out about the harem that she really goes off though. I don't want any of that, "It is a part of the Wakandan culture, my love," or any of that other boolshat.

If the audience misses anything in Good Hair, it might be more testimony from African American women who have let their hair grow naturally


Wow, that's disappointing. I was thinking that it would have a nice share of that.

 
Interesting how nobody will answer my question.

does Chris talk about the pressure that WHITE AMERICA puts on women of color, especially in the work place? Or is it more of "ha ha ha look at those silly black bitches and their weave!"

*whistles the Jeopardy! theme*


I'm curious too. I thought this would be a film about the beauty standard, and many black women's futile attempts to conform to it.  At least that's what I got from Chris Rock's story about his little daughter. Does he come to any conclusions at the end besides "black hair is good business?"

You know, since you need a support cast, why not borrow something from X-men Evolution--a super powered family memmber.  (Just cooler powers than Spyke.)


As much as I hate secret family members popping out of nowhere I can't help but be interested in something Dave Cockrum said in an interview:
