So... Marvel lied about Cap. He was under mind control by a female(?) Cosmic Cube who did this to jerk the fans' chains please the Red Skull.

I guess that makes more sense than using a gun that froze him in space and time at the moment of his death.

Golf clap for Marvel and Spencer. lol

I enjoyed Tale of a thousand Cats storyline and the son of The Sandman storyline.

Comic book Series; Astro City

Hero: Captain America
Storyline: The Winter Soldier series is fantastic but I think Hellboy's entire story arc is probably my fav.
Vilain: Dr. Doom

Got some map work done. I'm pretty pleased about that

What's it got in its pocketses?!?

I'm guessing the Adobe you spoke of installing is Photoshop? I've heard a lot of folks like to use that for maps. On those rare occasions when I do like to make a map, I use Campaign Cartographer.

Although, in a pinch, I can make a map in Powerpoint.

Or with crayons.

I use Photoshop for my Kingmaker campaign. The map is blacked out and the PCs reveal it more and more as they explore hexes, run spy missions and establish embassies. It's been a lifesaver as I'm able to build all the natural resources, armies, cities, roads, farms, etc. on different layers. It also looks like a map from Civilization but I'm okay with that. :)

Why does an inhabited barrier island have such crappy drainage? Also, if drainage is such a recurrent problem, especially when said island is subject to regular thunderstorms and frequent tropical storms/hurricanes, why don't said inhabitants do something(s) to improve the drainage? Yes, living in stilt homes helps those particular inhabitants, but what do you do when most of the roads are underwater/washing away and the septic fields & sewer systems are both too waterlogged to operate properly? Knowing all this, why doesn't everyone drive Subarus and other AWD vehicles? I miss my Subaru. [/Rant]

I thought pym, beast and stark were all about as smart as each other, just specializing in different areas. Banner is considerably smarter than all of them but focused entirely in gamma radiation research.

Richards is as smart(or not) as the storyline says he is. He's made a lot of boneheaded moves over the years.

Banner! I forgot about Banner!

In regards to making boneheaded moves. I have a lot of doctors on the in-law side of my family. They are very smart and excel in some of the most difficult fields but they do/think some really stupid things, basic common sense things. I guess that's why Wisdom and Intelligence are separate. ;)

It's Marvel's stance.

Is it a recent thing? Pym never seemed to get much respect for... what? Decades? Seems like just recently since like Age of Ultron they've tried pushing how important he actually is.

Prior to that? Shrink ray and malfunctioning robot certainly wasn't as impressive Reeds 'Make whatever it is I need for JUST THIS MOMENT!!!' that he could whip up whenever he needed. Anything from dimensional portals to machines to restore Galactus. Knowing the unknowable was always his thing. It's why Doom was so jealous all the time...

Now I kind of want to see Doom go after Pym...

Yeah, I always figured Richards was the smartest by far. Pym seemed smart but not on the same level. He seemed like he was on the same level as Stark and maybe Beast.

C'mon, that's like half the X universe.

Fair enough, but at least most of those got there in a vaguely coherent way - there was a storyline where they traveled from their original alternate timeline/possible future to the main universe.

They didn't just in world with their supporting cast and history intact for them, but in open conflict with the rest of the world except we don't talk about it.

Do some people in NYC know about the new Spiderman who replaced the old one while others know the original has always been around and still is? (Granted, they might just think it's two costumes and the same guy, but still.)

Yep, I totally agree with you, but then that's Marvel these days.

Went outside this morning a little after sunrise to go pick up Deadpool from Redbox. Everything is soaked and it's already feeling sticky-muggy from the humidity, but otherwise not too bad from tropical storm Colin. Stopped for a moment to enjoy a brief breeze and noticed a neat spikey spider had put up a new web. So I carefully leaned in close to take a closer look and admire his/her pretty colors... and a nice gust suddenly blew the spider right in my face. A teeny spider surprise in the face, and the subsequent spastic arm-flailing and sputtering, works pretty good as a coffee substitute for completely waking up.

Since you both are the resident NYCers, where are your top places in the city to get a good slice (or entire) pizza? Is Sicilian-style considered heresy?

There is more diversity in pizza offerings here than one would think. Sicilian is easy to find, and there are lots of people doing brick oven, too, in addition to the typical "New York" style pizza (or Neapolitan, which is just a stone's throw from the NY style).

The only heresy is Chicago-style deep dish.

Is that so you're not reminded what a real pizza tastes like. :-D
I try not to hate on it too much. It is a regional specialty. If someone gave me one, I would eat it (or at least a piece or two, at which point I would feel like I had a big rock in my stomach because deep dish is so heavy and greasy).

It could be worse, it could be pizza in the South.

Anyway, back to reminiscing.

A few days ago, I started bagging and boarding my Nightwing collection. I always liked that series. Bludhaven was a good invention, kind of an ugly step sister of Gotham. Solid writing from Chuck Dixon for the first several years. Then Devin Grayson took over and broke up Dick and Babs. Boo!!! She also had that awesome story line where the second Tarantula killed the second Blockbuster.

Anyway, I loved that the series took Nightwing out from under Batman's shadow, yet still managed to show just how much like his mentor he'd become. There was a mutlipart story with Batman early in the series run, and that's still one of my favorites. Primarily because it shows Batman as not being a complete a&!&!*+. There were also a couple times when Tim Drake Robin showed up. Those were cool in a big brother/little brother way.

The original artist was Scott McDaniel. Still love his stuff. It's instantly recognizable.

Anyway, still working my way through bagging and boarding the series.

Scott McDaniel! He drew the Daredevil: Fall From Grace stuff!

(I think...)

I'm just not up on the whole Japan thing

Japan is an island country in East Asia. Located in the Pacific Ocean, it lies to the east of the Sea of Japan, the East China Sea, China, Korea and Russia, stretching from the Sea of Okhotsk in the north to the East China Sea and Taiwan in the south. The kanji that make up Japan's name mean "sun origin", and it is often called the "Land of the Rising Sun".

Japan is a stratovolcanic archipelago of 6,852 islands. The four largest are Honshu, Hokkaido, Kyushu and Shikoku, which make up about ninety-seven percent of Japan's land area. The country is divided into 47 prefectures in eight regions. The population of 126 million is the world's tenth largest. Japanese people make up 98.5% of Japan's total population.

Approximately 9.1 million people live in the core city of Tokyo, the capital city of Japan, which is the sixth largest city proper in the OECD and the fourth leading global city in the world.The Greater Tokyo Area, which includes Tokyo and several surrounding prefectures, is the world's largest metropolitan area with over 35 million residents and the world's largest urban agglomeration economy.

Kieron Dwyer is great, loved his work in The Bloodstone Hunt which I believe came after the Walker stuff.

It's been awhile since I've looked at a lot of my old Cap issues, but I vaguely remember the Bloodstone Hunt. I recall Baron Zemo being one of the main villains.

I'll have to go back and reread it when I get around to boarding and bagging the Cap stuff.

I LOVED LOVED LOVED Fraction's Hawkeye (and I liked Aja's art). It was one of the few comics I read starring a dude (though of course I also liked Kate in it). ;) I really like Clint as depicted in this series. The newer Hawkeye series (with the creepy kids) I found weird and dropped.

It's been a while, so I don't remember the details of why I didn't like it, although I do remember thinking that Hawkeye was portrayed as a listless loser/slacker and found it annoying. Aja's art...is fine. I don't feel strongly about it one way or another.

And I think the issue with Hawkeye being so stiff compared to his comics counterpart (whom I love) is more to do with Jeremy Renner's performance than Stark overshadowing his sense of humor. Hawkeye does get some flippant lines but they just don't carry perhaps as far as they should, and Renner grabs onto the moodier beats of his character more notably than the humorous ones. Hawkeye also kind of got screwed by being mind-controlled in his earliest appearances so we didn't really get to know him. He's had the least interplay/banter with the rest of the team -- and Civil War didn't help him either, as the way he yelled at Stark made him come off more of a jerk than I think they intended (at least IMO--I felt sorry for Tony). (Obviously they need to fix this by having him actually sing that song in Infinity Wars.)

I like the movies Hawkeye, he has a dry wit that's different than the comics but its better than the over-the-top obnoxiouness that Stark sometimes slips into. And I thought the exchange with Stark was great, although I'm I'm on Team Cap so I could be biased. ;-)

And I hope if we ever get a Hawkeye story, that they never do the My Life as a Weapon books, a seriously disappointing and boring series to read.

A very diplomatic answer. I would expect nothing less from "The Man".

Yeah, Lee always has roughly the same answer to each movie or comic question that comes up. My favorite part though:

Quote:
Le sigh. Hopefully, there will be a perfectly good explanation for that twisty development (fan theories point at the Cosmic Cube being responsible for all this), that it will be resolved quickly, and then we can all forget it ever happened.

I see them killing off supporting characters but James Bonding all the main guys as the years go by. Death for a hero will be rare aside from the occasional Quicksilver/Coulson (and that was just Whedon's doing).

Too much money is on the line to "retire" Cap, Iron Man, etc. They may take a back seat as other franchises come and go but I don't see any new guys eclipsing the original stuff. Black Panther has the best shot, but I don't see Strange, Captain Marvel or the Inhumans doing that.
