Vox Populi / Re: "Tea-Bagger" equivalent to the "N" Word????
« on: May 06, 2010, 02:42:34 pm »
It's THEIR name.  They made it up.  The left laughed at them because they didn't get the other implications of it.  Now they wanna play high post?  Hilarious.  This is like nerds insisting on "trekker" instead of "trekkie". 

If a white man says Tea Bagger. Is it okay? Or can only two members of the tea party say "Hey my T-Baggeria"

Or were they enslaved, promised 40 acres and a mule, and racially discriminated aganist? Because you know, I can use a white slave to mow my lawn about now.

Thanks guys.  It's great to be writing the character again after a break, and working with Denys really fired me up.  His art inspires my writing.


Yes, you're welcome ... now what about asking Marvel to get you to do a Patriot comic?

Come on Reggie, give the brother a chance at a decent comic.

Hudlin TV / Re: new Boondocks up to watch
« on: May 06, 2010, 07:24:03 am »

Do you think is network is responsible for the two year gaps between episodes?

Honestly, I think it's a little of both. And while it's clear that we all love Boondocks; Reggie how do you feel about Boondocks omitting the 'banned episodes' aside? I'm curious as to how you see the show.

Reggie, you got my attention!

Ditto.

And because the writers insist in "dumbing" them down whenever they interact with the Bat and his cronies. In order to make Batman relevant they castrate Superman. Face it Batman shouldn't even be mentioned in the same sentence with Superman. >:(


Blame Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns for that.

Miller wrote a specific situation with a weakened Superman (he'd just survived a Nuke) who was trying to go easy on a Batman (cuz he's y'know old in the story) who is cheating his ass off ( Bats is wearing a power-suit, he has Green Arrow helping him with Kryptonite arrows and he's using heavy artillary too). Batman won out in that situation (but he had to fake a heart attack to do it).

Somehow this was taken to mean "Batman with Prep can take Superman".

All it really meant was "Batman with Prep can take Superman if Superman is tired and isn't interested in fighting back."

I admit this I am a John Stewart fan because of JLU, when he started appearing (again) in the comics I didn't recognize him, he was so poorly written. I blame the writers for that. I think McDuffie was doing a good job defining John before DC showed it's ass. DMcD was going a good job with Vixen and Dr Light and Canary too...

McDuffie is a superb writer.

Did you see how he saved Ben 10 and the dazzling work he did with Justice League: Crisis on two earths. In my heart, I think Wonder Woman was the best animated feature. But there are some friends of mine that are just in love with Crisis on two earth animated dvd.

But guys in an age where Black Super Heroes are getting a lot of good exposure and good storytelling. I was thinking of some underexpose characters.

Steel could use his own mini series
Mr. Terrific "                              "

and ... what's that teenage young captain america's name .... OH YEAH!!! Patriot!

I'm really looking forward to a Young Avengers comic where we get to see this young brother develop into a full-fledge hero of his own.

All this talk about JS and Steel and War Machine.

What about the new kid on the scene. My man Patriot.

That's a hero I want to see with his own series. WHO'S WITH ME ON THIS?


Reggie! make it happen NOW.Pretty pretty please! ROFLMAO

why isn't/wasn't John more prominent in the crossover?  Why isn't he getting his own series?

Geoff Johns doesn't like him. Next question.  :D

An interesting observation. On a previous board, someone schooled me that Johns did excellent work with Mr. Terrific, so perhaps he doesn't have a problem with black characters per se. (Though I wasn't impressed with his character development for Blade in the Blade TV series or his work with John Stewart.) So assuming he doesn't have a problem or disconnect he exhibits with Stewart isn't racially based, why doesn't he like Stewart? Does he just not get him?

And regarding interchangeable white characters, I think there have been some interchangeable black characters over time as well. I mean what's the difference besides the costumes for Falcon, War Machine, Black Lightning, Steel, Cyborg, and John Stewart, for example? Especially for the casual reader.

Whoa, just because GJ a white writer doesn't like a Black character ... I don't think it a racist issue. It could be but I hope not. If he did good writing with Mr. Terrific I guess that proves it.

As to why he doesn't like JS? Could be a lot of reasons! But I have to agree with Kip that he's just a replacement for Hal. Kyle was an artist. Guy was a social worker. Stewart like Jordan was a military man.

Yeah, a changing of the guard is necessary and a way to keep it fresh but remember on Earth GL's are still classified as Super Heroes not Cops. ;)

You make good points with Sinestro and Carol, but perhaps those could be replaced by other big moments...like John facing an undead Hal?

nah, still wouldn't work. Hal was Spectre so I think that would have been too much for Stewart. But if he was facing the other undead heroes ... how would that have been different then the other heroes who were being teased/menaced by their old dead friends? I guess I would have to see it done but I'm not sure how that would work/be different then the other heroes who had there emotions played with by the other undead heroes?

How would you guys feel if TPTB at DC had Damian/Robin, Iris
West/Impulse, Chris Kent/Superboy, Lian Harper/Speedy,
Cerdian/Aqualad (Tempest's son) & Robert Long/Wonder Boy
(Donna Troy's son) be the ones that will appear in the
Young Justice cartoon coming soon this year?

I wouldn't mind. A good show is a good show plus the tv version is always different then the comic anyway.

How would you react if the only Young Justice related characters that'll appear on
the show will just be Secret, Arrowette, Empress & Lagoon Boy (as the kids'
mentors/care takers) for the first season while they only mention about a
few YJ members in a 3 or 4 episodes?

I wouldn't like that so much

And finally, how would y'all react if the kids in that show were 10 - 12 year olds and
the show takes place in the modern era?

Depends on who the audience is that DC/WB is trying to reach. I wouldn't mind it personally.

Gee Reggie that's ... I'm not sure about that question. Hal Jordan returned a long time ago. Seems like your loading the deck just to have a blac ..er African American Green Lantern for blackest night.

But in answer to your question. No. A lot of interesting portions relied on the dynamic between Jordan and Sinestro that just wouldn't work with Stewart in his place if what you're proposing to make him the main star. And then you have the dynamic between Jordan and that purple (love) lantern.

The story would have to be abit different for Stewart to be the center.  Not that it couldn't be done. But if you're asking could he be as popular. I don't see why not? Luke Cage and Black Panther are pretty good. (As you well know I'm sure) and they are very popular. It only takes a good writer. fyi

But remember, the test was purity--a singular vision and purpose.  It wasn't a test of righteousness, morality, courage, honor or any of these other virtues.  Doom passed the test; he didn't beat the PG.  Who he beat was Panther.  Panther didn't think this about all the implications of a purity test.

I have to agree with Kip here. The Panther God was ready to kill Doom which is what everybody thought would happen but in a weird way, Doom does have purity. The Panther God said he passed the test and let him proceeded even against his better judgment. And just because PG let him take it doesn't mean he won't help T'Challa get it back.

The story is not over yet.

It's just the cover ... if that?

Not actually part of the issue so it's not cheating

Here's your mistake, Ture.  I'm not writing DOOMWAR.  I don't get the credit, I don't get the blame.

Quote from: Ture
I'm AAAa blaming you, anyway!

Can't we all just get along  ::)

Black Panther / Re: Doomwar and the many mistakes of Reginald Hudlin.
« on: April 22, 2010, 10:48:59 am »

After reading the third installment of Doomwar I found myself drawn back to my first post "Epitomizing the Black Panther". Though the writing maybe satisfactory the ineptitude displayed in the personalities (if such can even be said to exist) of Tchalla and Storm is deplorable. Tchalla lacks poise and confidence as Storm does depth and purpose. Both could be removed from the story and not be missed. The depiction  of Wakanda is unforgivable. It possesses no mystique, majesty, magic or uniqueness. It has all the depth of a "third world" country. Its populace is soulless and dimensionless. The writer may be trying to infuse so called contemporary Afrakan politics and sensibilities into the story but it leaves me thinking he lacks the rectitude to envision an unconquered futuristic Afrakan nation. The title of this comic is correct, this is not a Black Panther comic it is a Doom comic.

Let us begin by examining the following: the deposing of Tchalla by a fringe group that no one has heard of is outrageous and disrespectful. If the Desturi were connected with the Jabari tribe of the Man Ape or Killmonger's people in N'Jadaka city or better still to Hunter and the Hatut Zeraze .... this would give precedence and feasibility to such an attempt.

The untenable and blasphemous treatment of Storm goes all the way back to the Worlds Apart mini series and continues in Doomwar. We are supposed to believe that there is no moral outrage by the citizens of this "warrior" nation as to to her treatment, nor support for a goddess whom is known through out Afraka.

We are supposed to believe that the Wakandans assisting Doom are so dissatisfied with Tchalla's rulership that they side with an outsider despite centuries of isolationism (bordering on xenophobia) and self determinism. To add further insult we bear witness to a Wakandan  calling Doom "my lord" as Doom not only tells him to get to work but says "it won't matter who rules this country, it will be a wasteland of ash and charred bones." And every one is alright with this?

Tchalla, master strategist and genius that he is, has his head bowed as his younger sister ask the X-Men for help. How much tide turning can four X-Men do? Tchalla is lured into a trap and nearly killed by Doom by a mere energy blast from Doom's gauntlet. Couldn't Tchalla dodge it? What happened to the vibranium microwave of his habit? Reg a little help here. Tchalla could not get rid of a nanite infestation nor fully explain how he was able to avoid such.

PERHAPS THE MOST AGGRIEVOUS ACT WAS ANNOUCING THAT AFTER TEN THOUSAND YEARS OF WAKANDANS EXPLORING THE SECRETS OF VIBRANIUM,THEY NEVER MASTERED THE SECRET OF USING MAGICALLY CHARGED VIBRANIUM BUT DOOM HAS!!!


OH BUT THE MOST HEINOUS OF ACTS WAS DOOM'S MEETING WITH THE PANTHER SPIRIT. IT SEES DOOM AS PURE DESPITE THE HARM HE HAS DONE TO THE PANTHER SPIRIT'S MOST LOYAL OF FOLLOWERS. IS JONATHAN MAYBERRY HINTING THAT THE PANTHER SPIRIT HAS SEEN THE PATH THAT LEADS TO DOOMWORLD AND NOT TO THE FUTURE WHERE TCHALLA AND STORM LEAD THE WORLD AS SEEN IN BP BLACK TO THE FUTURE.



HIS MOST FLAGRANT ERROR WAS THE MARRIAGE OF BLACK PANTHER TO STORM. HE EVEN HAD THE BLATANT DISREGARD INTIMATE CONJUGAL RELATIONS BETWEEN THEM ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS.

Reggie has unashamedly interwoven Afrakan history, contemporary politics and hip hop culture into a tapestry of heroic exploits palatable to a variety of comic book readers. He has sold more Black Panther comics than any writer in the character's history and is responsible for the first animated series dedicated to the King of Wakanda.



You make some good points here about the Desturi but others?

Yes Wakanda has great technology but you have to remember that Dr. Doom is on a level with Dr. Reed Richards. In fact, Doom is higher then Reed because he also can use magic at near the same level of Dr. Strange.
In new Avengers Dr. Strange was terrified of the idea that Doom would be named the next great socere supreme. Not to mention, that his technology is probably on par with Dr. Richard's if you remember. Reed's technology and understanding of science surpass that of the Wakandan's.  So when you consider those two factors and that T'Challa is pushing science rather then magic in Wakanda then the fact that you mention doesn't become so outrageous that Doom would be able to master it first.

That's just the way the ball bounces in the Marvel Universe.

In general, I like the story. Dr. Doom is being a real credible villain (threat) in this story, something that the BP has been missing. Although that threw me for a loop when the Cat said he had a pure heart. But to me that made the story better. NOT WORST! but hey that's just me.
