I loved last night's episode! And I have a new theory on the origin/identity of Zoom!

Spoiler:
It seems as though the writer is maybe a huge fan of Wally West and/or Mark Waid. The origin story they provided for Reverse Flash is very similar to the "Return of Barry Allen" story Waid did in the pages of West Flash lo those many years.

I'm glad Patty figured out he was the Flash, and the scene on the train at the end was pretty cool.

I liked the scene with Iris and her mom.

I like the expansion of Cisco's powers.

Well2 is still a dick, and it looks like he might be moving forward with his plans to betray Wally by stealing his speed.

Hunter Zolomon! WOOT! Could it be that he will eventually become ZOOM, then travel back in time to steal more speed? Will Caitlin inadvertently be the cause of Zoom's creation, and Jay's subsequent loss of speed power, all in an attempt to cure Jay? I can see her getting desperate, performing an experiment to give Hunter the same mutated DNA Jay has, so that she can heal Jay. But something goes wrong and...BOOM!....we get Zoom instead.

Watching the preview for next week, I look forward to seeing Bizzaro Supergirl. However, I think I finally pinpointed the one other thing I really dislike about Lex Lord - dude doesn't come across to me as evil or power-mad, he just seems kinda like a douchebag.

hmm.

We'll see how this pans out. I am not expecting ebony white-levels of stupidity, but it could easily misfire.

It'll probably involve some humor. Marvel seems to like using supporting cast for that. But I wouldn't be surprised if they give him a bit of martial arts-ing to do. I just wonder if they're going to make him shave his head.

Otherwise, I trust the movie franchise runners to not f%#~ it up too much.

I don't see what either the author's age or parentage to has to do with his work.

The age thing is personal preference. I find a lot of young folks these days to be annoying, and young writers seem adept at channeling what I find annoying into their work.

As for parentage, in this case it's once again personal preference (the specifics of which I mentioned up thread). Other than that, I could give two s!&$s less whether some famous writer's kid tried their hand at writing. Or any famous artist/entertainer for that matter. Talent does have a habit of running in the family on occasion. From what I understand, Stephen King's kid is a pretty decent writer.

Finally got to see the movie. It was pretty good.

One thing I don't understand is those who say it was a pure re-hash of A New Hope. I saw elements of the original trilogy throughout, and some excellent homages.

A rehash. Those folks are smoking some bad s+@+. Or they're just idiots.

Droid escapes from the Empire/First Order carrying information that both the Empire/First Order and the Rebel Alliance/Resistance. It crashes on a desert planet, where it soon meets the hero of the story, Luke/Rey. This hero is found to be force sensitive. Through the Empire/First Order's efforts to recapture the droid, the hero meets the main villain, Darth Vader/Kylo Ren. The Rebel Alliance/Resistance learns of the existence of a planet-killer weapon (apologies to Babylon 5 for stealing their terminology). The hero's mentor, Obi-Wan/Han Solo is killed by the main villain. The hero confront's the main villain, and barely escapes with his/her life. Largely through the actions of the hero, the planet-killer weapon is destroyed.

I mean, cmon? They could have at least made Jakku into something other than a desert planet. Hell, they could have made it an ICE planet and at least stolen a note from ESB.

And....so what?

It still has enough plot differentiations to make it a standout movie in it's own right. Besides, many of those plot points are elemental to most stories.

So I stand by my earlier statement.

Just a thought more on the movie, while it's fresh in my mind...I don't recall them saying where Snoke was sending his messages from.

Also, maybe it was me, but his face seemed...f&&!ed up...on one side. I mean, other than the fact he was some creepy looking alien dude. He kind of seemed to me to be the bastard love-child of the cave troll from Fellowship of the Ring and one of the monsters from the I am Legend movie.

That "too long" in his complaint is not a quality measured by page numbers, but rather by his (personal) tolerance for the story arc and (personal) determination that it should or should not have concluded by now.

The last strip of book 5 was 946. We have now had 71 strips in book six. Were book six to end now, it would be the shortest book in terms of number of strips. DCF is the next shortest (121 strips). Books 2, 3, and 4 all have more than twice as many strips as book six currently does, and book 5 is more than three times as long. All of what I just wrote can be obtained in a couple of minutes by looking at the strip numbers in the archives.
Nobody in this thread is asking how many existing strips will be in book six, nor anything related to the length of any of the hardcopy books. It's more of a general complaint about how long this current plot line has been going on. The general consensus of the detractors is that we're ready to see the story advance to a different scene.
Indeed. Although my answer would have probably gone something along the lines of "I could give two f*#!s less how many strips make up a book". To me, the story is dragging ass and getting s#*@ ass boring.

In finally rewatching Antman last night, I seem to recall some talk about the so-called Quantum Realm from that movie showing up in Doctor Strange. I have to wonder if it will be a significant part of the film, just a part of his training, or perhaps just a way to tie more of the cinematic universe together (i.e. perhaps a post credit scene of Hank Pym asking Doctor Strange for help in searching for his long-lost wife....).
IIRC, the Quantum Realm was used as an example how the more trippy stuff in Dr. Strange will be handled, BUT I recall a couple of interviews with Feige where he stated that they were looking into quantum theories to explain the magic in Strange

Indeed. However, with Feige now saying the Amulet will have some unspecified time-related powers, coupled with the bit in Antman about the Quantum Realm and its weird time relationship, I was thinking Strange could be the key to returning Janet to the real world. Hank said in the movie he'd been pursuing a rescue through science for ten years after Janet's disappearance - could be he'd want to finally pursue a non-science route.

I'd love to issue a challenge to one of these young "IT" comic book writers: If your so damned good, try going an entire year writing nothing but one-shot issues on whatever hip, uber-popular series you work on.

I'd bet half of them couldn't do it. Probably more than half.

I guess it is way late, but I just noticed this thread again.

Kind of surprised because when I read this, I realize I miss John Byrne.

DC in particular is a storytelling mess these days, and Byrne could tell a story.

Have to say though, his art does not grab you decades later like Kirby's and some others do.

DC is messed up right now though. I know Byrne spent a good while at Marvel, but his DC work is what I think of first, and they could sure use... somebody.

Byrne is a legend, and rightly so. The dude is, indeed, a fantastic storyteller.

I'd have to say, however, DC isn't the only one who's universe is messed up. Marvel's pretty messed up as well, from what I see.

And, will he say "Hoary Hosts of Hoggoth!"???

I hope he at least uses one or two of the classics, like Crimson Bands of Cytorrak or Shields of the Seraphim (Bolts of Bedevilment, Winds of Watoomb, Images of Ikonn, Vapors of Valtorr, etc. I'm sure there are many more I'm not remembering off the top of my head!).

I always found invoked and ritual spellcasting more interesting than the telepathy/telekinesis brand of 'magic' that you usually see on Charmed/Buffy/Supernatural type shows, and in the case of Marvel magicians, very much prefer all the 'Boozy Boasts of Cayden!' style invocations.

I like throwing Tilda Swinton into that role. She's a terrific actress and can really do the part justice. However, there is a small part of me that wishes they would have gotten some old Tibetan actor to play the part.

I still think the one thing they did right with League of Extraordinary Gentlemen was to get Naseeruddin Shah to play Captain Nemo.

Love actually is a beautiful movie.

My wife says the same thing.

I have to agree with Hama and Aberzombie's wife here.

And actors from that movie are simply amazing and have been is dozens of other staring roles from The King's Speech to Game of Thrones to Harry Potter to Pirates of the Caribbean to Underworld to The Force Awakens to the bloody lead in the Walking Dead.

There is a lot of subtle humor, from the Portuguese father and daughter's banter at the proposal to the British Secret Service having a rich baritone, I love nearly every scene in that movie.

There have been half a dozen American films that have tried to duplicate this film and none have come even a fraction of the way close.

I found it to be annoying and essentially a live action (bad) romance novel. The only redeeming part of the movie was Bill Nighy - because, well, he's just badass.
