Latest Flicks / Re: MAN WITH THE IRON FISTS
« on: November 11, 2012, 01:16:47 pm »
That was fantastic!  Very few times I had that much fun watching a film.  The soundtrack and score was awesome as well.  Iron Fist's theme was epic and surprisingly heroic adding to Rza's character.  Even though he was super laid back, I liked it because it reminds me of video games where the lead character's personality was scaled back because he was basically our avatar.  I don't know if that was Rza's idea, but it worked for me.

I was wondering where everyone came out on the latest Schism book.  I was on another board and had a great discussion on another board, the conflict between Cyclops and Wolverine seemed to touch a cord with most of the posters.  Where do you come out on Schism, who was right?

Picked up issue 1;  if this is any indication of what's coming; this character could last a hundred issues (or more.)

Yeah, I can see that. I'm not a big fan of BMB, but he hit it out the park with this one.

I liked it too, i'm not optimistic about 100 issues though.  It was a good story but we got a look at everybody's personality but his.  I hope he's not going to be so mopey and quiet for too long

I just found out Black Manta was actually black like a couple months ago.  Haven't been that shellshocked since I found out Samus from Metroid was a chick





Are you talking about the original Metroid?

yep old school NES

Good lookin out for that post count, lol

Look at this way, I been out of the loop for awhile so in my world, I'm basically coming out from under my rock to some crazy news

I mean what was the point of changing characters to begin with if all you're going to end up with is Peter Darker?

Ultimate Nick Fury isn't a product of an in universe character change and he was never all that popular anyway.  Changing things for him worked out great but I don't see how the Spider-Man thing will work like that
"Peter Darker"! 
We need to remember how few comics are actually sold.  There's plenty of room for growth.

I admit, I've been waiting to drop that line.  You like?  ;D

My thing is, I never was a fan on this forum of the "Black Version", I don't want a black spiderman, a black superman, black avengers, it's just rings hollow to me.  Alot of people use the example of Ultimate Nick Fury and it's true since his introduction he has basically become the Nick Fury used in basically every form of media format other than the 616, but he is a totally different character IMO from the original version even aside from the skin color, he's Nick Fury in name only.

What was refreshing about your Black Panther series was how great a character he was and how rich the storylines were.  He wasn't just a run of the mill crimefighter, he was a king and badass at that, not a superhero dipped in caramel.  Sorry for rambling

Given that the same writer is going to write the new character, and looking at the few panels of the new guy we've seen he's pretty much the same personality, I don't see how it doesn't work big time. 

it will be interesting to see if Peter Parker starts to "pale" in comparison, the way original Nick compares to Ultimate Nick Fury. 

I don't see how killing off an iconic character only to replace him with someone who acts essentially the same is gonna work.  I mean what was the point of changing characters to begin with if all you're going to end up with is Peter Darker?

Glad I stopped reading long ago, there's no way this is going to be a good idea

If you don't mind my asking, why such pessimism at the concept?
It sounds kind of like Spider-man meets Static and both of those work. Certainly the execution could disappoint but were you objecting to the idea? I'm just curious.

Just my kneejerk response as Ultimate was perhaps my favorite version of the character, I had read almost all of the first 100 issues and continued until Bagley left the title and I kinda trailed off.  I was very dismayed to hear they just killed Parker off and replaced him regardless of the race of the character.  From what I read of Static and Spiderman they are essentially the same character.  After reading Ultimate Aftermath it kinda soften the blow but still, I'm not loving this at all

Thanks for the reply, D.
So you're pissed off that they killed Peter Parker in your favorite version. Independent of who replaces him. I can understand that. Given that that's a done deal, are you open to checking out Miles Morales if it's done well? Again, I'm just genuinely curious.

I just picked up an issue of Ultimate Aftermath and I thought it was done well and I considered getting the one with Morales's first appearance but I decided to check it out later.  All in all I guess they did their job, they shocked me and got my attention

i don't even care even if the film turns out good. More of a cash grab to prevent marvel from rebooting the film.
Everybody wants to grab cash.  Sony, Marvel, they all have the same goal.

I understand that, but most of the time it doesn't come off as so blatant, there's usually some kind of vision beyond that
