October ain't over yet!
There's still Halloween!


Anyone ever heard of Marie Antoinette?

In October 1793, Marie Antoinette, was the infamous, tragic Queen of France who was beheaded during the French Revolution for bankrupting the country from lack of governing experience.

Infamous last words forever enshrined in history dismissive of her starving people's concerns,

"Oh, let them eat cake!"

The Queen's story should be the proverbial cautionary tale directed at democratic institutions all across the globe. Let's take one of America's co-existing branches of government, for example, the Executive branch.

I'll get back to that in a minute...

Today, Marie Antoinette's tragic life has spawned a cult of popularity where her likeness can be seen in all kinds of commercial merchandise ranging from dolls, figurines to television shows and even through the pearly gates of Hollywood.

steve mnuchin is currently appointed United States Secretary of the Treasury under the pupetine administration, also married to actress louise linton who once played a character who dressed as Marie Antoinette attending a charity event who eventually gets killed off on an episode of one of those awful CSI television shows "A Daze of Wine & Roaches' which can be seen here:

Now that we understand that Congress plans to reward themselves and their wealthy constituents with enormous tax cuts that keep rich people like steve & louise very rich who likes to take airplane flights at huge heights, shopping at the tax payer's expense instead of actually governing...


---aren't you filled with Life, Liberty & Happiness knowing that you have the government that you deserve?  This Halloween, celebrate with louise linton and company by honoring her greatest role in her Hollywood career.



Anyone remember the classic 1960s television creep show, 'The Addams Family'?

The youngest member of the creepy and ookie sitcom family, Wednesday, carries a beheaded doll where ever she goes...

That headless doll Wednesday carries is actually Marie Antoinette.

But wait, there's more...

According to Bloomberg News:

A former foreign policy adviser to the Trump campaign, George Papadopoulos, secretly pleaded guilty as part of Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller’s probe into Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.


Papadopoulos had suggested that Donald Trump meet with top Russian leaders during the campaign. He pleaded guilty to making false statements during an interview with the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

I've only read a few paragraphs 'cause I don't wanna know too much, True Father 7, but...

---YES!!!

This is absolutely, positively the direction the Black Panther mythos should go in.  :)

This is a perfect example how far ahead of the curb Mr. Hudlin was when he had T'Challa going into space during his run on Black Panther.

Interesting...

During tonight's TBS broadcast of Avengers : Age of Ultron, an entire scene of Thor: Ragnarok was previewed!  :)
The gladiator scene, Thor versus Hulk... looks like fun!

...and one of my favorite actors in Hollywood, Jeff Goldblum is in this!  Looks like a fun character, too!  :)

Do you have a problem with an intelligent African-American writer...?

...as opposed to a white writer with a thinly-veiled racist bent?

No, I have a problem with Ta-Nehesi "Write his pet characters better than the actual protagonist" Coates.



I'm gonna leave this alone...  for now.

My show [Avengers: Age of Ultron] on TBS is about to come on...

=== don't have time to debate...

DOOMWAR was the greatest insult to Black Panther fans ever written.

Doom war was the biggest insult to BP. It really showed clearly how marvel views its POC heroes. He couldn't get a clear victory over Doom.. it was very insulting to BP fans, especially when this and Even Scot Lang were able to get even. And his offensed weren't as big compared to what happened to Wakanda..


Agreed.

Furthermore, disagree with the notion that what makes Wakanda and its inhabitants special is without vibranium; no, what makes Wakandans special is the fact that they are the chosen ones to possess and hold on to a valuable, rare resource that no other Nation on this Earth has for so long.
Trade is the lifeblood of Nations, as the sayings goes.

There is an old racist Russian joke a Russian guy once told me in Brooklyn while standing in line at the bursars office in college right around the time the World Trade Center was destroyed. It goes,

"A Black man has the hands of a sieve. You put money into his hands and it slips right through."

Of course, I took the time to school his dumbazz for his ignorance but that's another story for another time and never forgot the encounter.

A more apt analogy would be that what makes America special & unique from any other Nation is not just its diversity but its location, and its resources and if any one of those components are removed, we are nothing!  Likewise, if Wakanda loses its location and resources, they are nothing!  Doesn't matter what their peak physiology is.

DOOMWAR was the greatest insult to Black Panther fans ever written.

I hear ya.. but couldn't the sane be said about a stalemate too? I guess for me I am just so tired that it Seems like Tchalla had to get the technical win "He outsmarted Doom".... But Doom beat that ass hard and Tchalla thanked him for it. In SW Tchalla outsmarted Doom... But Doom beat that ass hard and Tchalla was laying crumbled at his feet barely able to speak.. I have said many times how I would of ended Doom war and I'm the final fight would of been, T'Challa starts with the advantage in h2h (don't gimme the bs that Doom on top of everything else he can do, can hold his own Against top tier h2h fighters) and is beating Doom,
Doom evens the odds by using magic and gains the advantage, he makes a speech about how he is superior blah blah blah, Tchalla answers with "Do you know why Wakanda has never tapped I to the mystical side of Vibranium? It's not a matter of bot Being able to, but the simple fact that, despite the great power gained from it, it has one key weakness"  Que Tchalla pulling out the device, telling him through shadow physics, he has connected with the mystic Vibranium on the quantum level, and from there he disables Dooms armor, and from there lays a beating into to Doom hard and tells him, he will return the Vibranium stolen or he will destroy him.

Same with SW. Though that's more understanding because Tchalla knew that the guantlet didn't stand a chance. But I would of preferred Tchalla standing in defiance despite not being able to fight anymore when he told doom he was going to lose.

I like cunning but dammit Tchalla deserves the decisive wins both physically and that cunning wibas well




Yeah...

I had issues about DOOMWAR as well. The brutality of the interactions between characters just to make a point just seemed so contrived and exaggerated that I didn't even pick up the last issue.  The story comes across as a stunt that a creepy politician would pull. I have NO idea how the story ended.

Years ago, I  did, however, thanked maberry on Facebook for writing a different story about T'Challa inventing Falcon's wings gaining him flight ability. I really liked the style ; reminded how comicbook writers used to write back-in-th' day under Jim Shooter's editorial regime...

- - - then, promptly deleted him from my friends gallery afterwards. ;)

I feel you very much here, but I tend to lean toward a balance of both. I don't see why we should CHOOSE when T'Challa can and does do both. I also think that T'Challa's TRUE calling card is the "Mind Over Matter, Cunning Over Strength" thing. Much closer to what you said, above.

Honestly?  Because when you do both, people only ever remember the physical win.



Shouldn't the goal between 2 collaborative writers be to serve the story?
