Funny. My frozen chicken sacrifices to Orcus by the light of the full moon generally are accepted.

You must have a faulty connection.

Maybe I should try KFC. No one would care if that crap was wasted.

Does any hero ever die permanently in comics?
Yes. (It's rare, though.)

Captain Mar-Vell is one of the few that has stayed dead and even he was resurrected briefly. I can't think of too many others now that Bucky and Jason Todd are off the list. I guess there are some original Invaders and Golden Age DC guys that have stayed dead but that's about it.

Oh and Thunderbird!

]so...how do you explain past bad storylines?

Has the comic been a perfect run for the past god knows how many years? I strongly doubt it.

Maybe I'm not understanding your point, but why would I explain past storylines? No comics are ever perfect on a constant basis. Some are good, some are boring, and some are just lousy. I don't keep buying something I don't care for, especially these ridiculous dog and pony shows that Marvel likes to pull.

no, you're just b@~+$ing and swearing you will never read it and quietly encouraging others to do the same, which is worse for the comic.

So... we're not allowed to voice our complaints with the concept? Just buy the comic and hope for the best?

Whatever, that's ridiculous.

Sovereign Court

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.

Cap Spoiler.

What a stupid idea. I guess they're trying to top DC but this seems like it will end up being Cap's One More Day storyline.

They ruined Iron Man even harder in the movie than they ever did the comics.

The Civil War comics ruined Stark for me too. It's been years since I read any of it, but his actions and dialogue were so off from what I loved as a kid that I've never picked up an IM comic since.

-I'm glad that IronMan didn't completely overshadow everyone else which was a big fear of mine. I loathe IM3 because of that.
What. You loath a character for being important in their own movie?

*facepalm*

Agh, I messed that up. I was rushing by the end of the post. I do loathe IM3 but it was Avengers (which I kinda like) where I felt he was overshadowing everyone.

Sovereign Court

I saw it and loved it, my new #1 Marvel movie. They did a great job giving all the characters a little something to do throughout the film.

Some of my thoughts:

-The rapport between Wanda and Vision, I wonder if they will explore that further.
- The buddy thing they started between Falcon and WS. I just love what they've done with Falcon. I want Anthony Mackie to have his own movie now. The theater laughed so hard at "I hate you."
-Everything Antman/Giantman did. The Giantman battle, even though it was spoiled for me by Lego toys (grrrr), was wonderful. I agree that Scott should have sought a little more assurance that what they were doing was worth the cost to him personally.
-I may have misunderstood this but I liked how they indicate that Vision does not control the infinity gem, which would explain why he wasn't powerful enough to take on everybody. And it seemed like this loss of control is partly why Rhodes got hurt.
-I like how they portrayed Black Panther. He was regal and powerful and while I'm a little fuzzy on his actions during the movie, I liked how he overcome his anger and need for revenge whereas Stark could not.
-I'm glad that IronMan didn't completely overshadow everyone else which was a big fear of mine. I loathe IM3 because of that.
-All things Cap, I thought the Russos did a great job with the character.

Nitpicks:
-Crossbones. Ugh, the fight scene was way too chaotic and why, why, why must Marvel kill off it's villains?
-Zemo. Why use Zemo if you going to change everything about him? If Cap had remembered the name as someone he fought in WWII, so they connected it a little to the comics, then I would have been happy. His motivation and plan executions as a villain were very cool despite all that. And I knew I was never going to see the purple mask (sob).
-Spiderman. I know in this day and age of tech and surveillance that it was probably pretty easy for Stark to figure out who Peter was.
But it still bothers me that they went down that road.
And I don't like that SM's suit and some tech come from Stark, not Peter.

I'd like to see Feist's RiftWar series, at least up to the SerpentWar Saga. And something on the Tsurani Empire trilogy would be awesome too.

If we went rural, we might get a couple of those, but certainly not the whole deal. :-)

I'm not a fan of rural living either, I had enough of that as a kid. I like the middle of the two choices, which I guess would be suburbia.

I find there's a pleasing sense of egalitarianism in cities as well. The small town I live in is extremely clannish. Despite living here off and on since 1990, I'll never be a 'true' native. Especially not having grown up here. There are no gamers, I'd have to travel half an hour to find anyone to game with. It can be very frustrating as an introvert with niche hobbies to find friends. Even readers are few and far between.

I am tired of the rural scene. I think when I get my paralegal certification I will be looking to find a job in a more urban setting.

Cities are fine but it's nice having your own driveway to park, your own yard to play in with the kids and not hearing your neighbors argue through the wall. I would lean towards non-city myself, but I loved living in Philly in my younger days.

I know. They taste even better.

Just this Sunday, I cooked a beef roast. Marinated it overnight in a mix of beef broth, Coca-Cola, dark brown sugar, and white vinegar. Then I sprinkled on some Slap Ya Mama seasoning (yes, that's a thing), and smoked it for about 2 hours with some mesquite wood.

I forgot to take pictures, however.

Now I think there is a lot of modern architecture that is beautiful. But Penn Station is not it.

It's like the big book of British smiles in the Simpsons, you need a worst case example to show the up and coming architecture students to show them what not to do.

So really, Penn Station is making the rest of the world a prettier place. Just not Penn Station.

They have been using the Inhumans and hinting at (or actually using?) the Kree, so it is possible to use something like that. Probably more of an "experimented on by Kree" than the actual original origin.

Sadly, they won't be able to use the "Got turned into half-Kree, then brain/power wiped by Rogue, then get cosmically powered by Brood experiments, then drain those powers away but still keep something like her old powers, which now seem to be back up to an weaker version of the Binary level" full storyline.

You're right, that is probably the easiest way around it. Plus, I forgot that she doesn't even have/need the Nega Bands.
