i not tryin' to be funny, but how many hispanic astronauts have u heard of?

I've tried to resist making this post since I read yours, but

when was the last time you saw a blond astronaut!!!  :)  Hmm, and the FF had two blonds; no wonder they crashed.

(And in case someone doesn't get it, and there are real blond astronauts--it's a joke!)

^^^^^ CORRECT!!!

This is what I have been trying to get at all Along!!


Give The Wakanden's some Frikken Guns!! for God Sake!!

No, not guns.  In a culture that has absolute disdain for the outside world, they would not adopt the weapons of that world. 

What they should have is a unique weapon.  I would see something like what the Jaffa use in Star-gate, their staff weapons.  Or something else; something that retains heritage of Africa, but the technology of the future, sortof what a light-saber is to a sword.

^^^^ Very true,not to mention Panther getting thrown out a window and hitting things on the way down,as if he was not skilled enough to correct his fall or even dodge Captan America's throw or whatever.


And of course we have Iron man talking about how embarassing it was to get his gun knocked off his arm by a spear >.<


It would have been so much cooler to see them shooting Vibranium BULLETS,or Lazers and taking on the Avengers.

and they all seemed to run away Scared whenever Iron man or even the Wasp shot her little blast spark things at them >.<


Would Vibranium bullets work, in principle?  Bullets are propelled by an explosive force.  Vibranium absorbs energy; so wouldn't the bullets just "plop" rather than fly?  well, maybe we could  use vibranium tipped bullets.

My daughter and I watched UA2 together and we liked the movie better than UA, but we both thought BP's character in the movie would have been similar like BP's character in the comics (pick any writer's run Priest or Reg).  I want to know how in the hell BP could not sense Black Widow approaching him in the jungle w/ guns pointing at him and he seemed to be caught off guard?  Can you repeat after me....." the writers went to sleep on that one" (old skool phrase used back in tha day).  I know I'm not the only one who picked that scene out and said "hell naw that aint right" 

Ah, common stunt:  sacrifice logic for a cool stunt.  Her gun popping up at his forehead, unawares is a cool stunt.  Or rather a cliche stunt.  But then again, this is the Black Widow.  There isn't a more dangerous woman on earth.

Nah, the scene I surprised that no one has complained about.  A sleeping Captain America takes out BP like a rank amateur. Cap is sleeping, and on an instant of waking up he throws BP out the window, and controls his dive out of the window, surfing down the side, and BP can't get balanced until he hit the ground?

You're right karaszero. I don't remember seeing the Wakandans using a pure laser beam or energy particle beam to destroy Chitari ships. Maybe we're to assume that the rockets launched from the turrets were laser-guided somehow.



Just a note.  In the first movie, they established the the invaders used Vibranium in their ships and personal armor.  It also established that vibranium could only be penetrated by vibranium.  (Until they found out about the gamma rays.)  So, if the Wakandans used laser technology, it would have been useless. 

As far as why did they dress the wakandans in loincloth and gave them spears.  http://forum.newsarama.com/showthread.php?t=79839 

"NRAMA: In the comic books Wakanda has very advanced technology. It the movie Wakanda soldiers use spears and then at other times they seem to have super technology. Why the dichotomy?

CK: I think there’s a beauty to the lost kingdom. That idea of a land that is completely untouched by the outside world’s laws and decrees because it is a culture that’s really embraced its past. They dress in very humble means because it’s a part of who they are. If you look at the underbelly of Wakanda it’s full of high technology and enhancements but the people are very spiritual. They still live with panthers and they have ancient ways that they have never needed to change. When you can throw a spear that’s made from vibranium and it goes through Giant-Man’s chest or Iron Man’s armor it makes you question “then why hold a gun?”

Other Comics / Created now vs 60s

The Racial Draft thread reminded me of a thought I've had before.  Suppose the big guys were created today rather than in the early 60s, which ones do you think would have been black (or another minority)?

For example, I think if the FF were created today, Ben would have been black.  (I know, it follows the cliche of a black hero not looking black, because his skin has been changed.)  Sue and Johnny might have been Hispanic, but maybe not.

hmm... maybe Bill is off-the-radar for now.. has he showed up anywhere after that miniseries?

Nope; sad too.  When written correctly; he's a great character.

It just might be easier (and somewhat less embarrasing if I continue this list) to list the shows I don't watch.

Hudlin TV / Re: Blade episode was good last night
« on: August 11, 2006, 02:24:06 pm »
Who is the actress who plays the blond chick; no, not that adult, the other one, the young kid who is the pure blood and eats babies?  I've seen her elsewhere and I can't place her.

The actress name is Emily Hirst and the only other credit I could find for her besides Blade was an episode of Smallville called Fragile.

Thank you.  I've seen every episode of Smallville, so that's where I probably saw her.  On the other hand, I think she just reminds me of the vampire who sired Lacroix who sired Nicholas KNight on Forever Knight.

Has anyone been following the Annilhlation storyline?  It's probably the best cosmic storyline since Infinity Gauntlet. 

For the first time ever, I see Annihlus as something more than a cockroach.  Now, he's a real player.   You know how there is a running "joke" (or not so much of a joke) that BP has plans to deal with Galactus.  Well, after this storyline, BP has to throw-out whatever plans he made to deal with Annihlus because they're too small to work any longer.

Other Comics / CW and Beta Ray Bill
« on: August 10, 2006, 06:14:16 pm »
When we last saw Beta Ray Bill, he had been bounded to a black man in NYC.  That pretty much gave him a secret identity and makes him subject to SHRA.  Now, most of the black heroes have supported Cap's side, but BRB isn't the typical black man.  Still, Cap's side could really use BRBill's power, especially if thor remains on the Pro-Registration side.

This sounds absolutely disgusting. Clearly the big names at Marvel have little or no oversight for these projects. I can't imagine they'd think this is a good way to market thier characters. How could anybody involved in Black Panther allow his character and people to be depicted as spear chuckers?

Even though I found the spear chucking a little strange; the Spear chucklers had better sucess fighting the aliens than Iron Man had in the War-machine armor.  They also nearly killed the Avengers--one spear severed Iron Man's blasters from his wrist and they took out Giant-man better than aliens did.  The way it was played out, using guns would have been a step down for the Wakandans.

It should be noted though, this not comic book Wakanda of any previous incarnation.  No comments were made about this being the most technologically advanced society on earth.

Did the panther have vibranium claws too? Or did he only have them in human form?


Incidentally, this is sounding more retarded the more I hear about it.

He didn't turn into a panther--think more of a were-panther.  This head transformed into a panther's head and his power levels jumped.  It was sortof like a Viking Beserker.
