Tom Brevoort calls out the naysayers who think the changes will revert by the time these characters next movies come out...

I will bet him ten times that that Thor won't be played by a woman in Age of Ultron.


You could call somebody who cared for a quarter.


Talk is cheap. You don't know until you're under the gun.

To all you people complaining. You are the worst.

This is a great springboard for stories, and Classic Thor will still exist in the title: "The Unworthy Thor".

Captain America is going to be replaced by Sam Wilson, and the next year or two of Marvel will be about legacies and eventually the precious status-quo will be restored. Can people not just enjoy the stories as they are told without moaning?

Maybe there isn't anything there to enjoy? I haven't even been reading Marvel comics because they don't tell good stories in the first place. This isn't suddenly going to change that.

I kinda wish William S. Burroughs would do a comic book and make Thor female because then it would be worth reading. Or, maybe Alan Moore, since he's alive and all.

Otherwise, I get the feeling that it's just "hey! look! Marvel made Thor a woman; aren't we sooooooo groovy? Now look at DC.....the whole JLA is a Meat Locker. Wow; they sure are misogynists. Poor Wonder Person."

If the story's good, the thing redeems itself and it doesn't matter.
I like Rat Queens i.e. a DnD group of women who have a Fafhrd/Grey Mauser mentality but they aren't dudes. I liked the Authority i.e. a bunch of crazy "heroes" with a gay Superman and Batman ripoff, but hey the stories were awesome. Yay. Superman's (Apollo) gay. Batman's (Midnighter) gay. I don't give a s!%* one way or the other, but the story and art were awesome. They killed the Avengers, they killed the X Men; it was awesome!!! The thing didn't try to rest on the crux of "wow; we have a gay Superman/Batman; aren't we so f&%*ing snazzy?"

It's actually really awesome when this kind of affirmitave action for fictional characters deal doesn't end up being a snorefest.

such treason

so mango

wow


Taught by the powers that preach over me
I can hear their empty reasons
I wouldn't listen, I learned how to fight
I opened up my mind to treason
But just like the wounded, and when it's too late
They'll remember, they'll surrender
Never a care for the people who hate
Underestimate me now


So are they going to make Movie Thor Katie Sackhoff now?

No. No they are not.

Because this is just Marvel Cheezy Marketing Gimmick # 5,812, and like when DC "Kills" Batman or Superman, it will all be back to normal in 6 months.


Oh Yay.

Mavel Cheezy Marketing Gimmick # 5,812.

I wonder if anybody's going to whinge because she has boobplate, or let it slide because this is definitely going to pull feminism into the 21st century.

Trying to figure out if the GRE is a bigger pain in the ass, less of a pain in the ass, about an equal pain in the ass, or if there is not enough info to tell if it is one of those than being impaled by Vlad Tepes on some sort of bill hook.


NOW IN TECHNICOLOR!

Thanks!

Is the pain in the ass greater than, less than, about equal to, or is there not enough information to tell if it is more of a pain in the ass than actually being impaled on a polearm by Vlad Tepes?

Taking the GRE tomorrow (grad school entry exam, for those from not USA who call their tests differently).

Good times...


You also had to pay for training which sucked the loot right back out of you.


NOW IN TECHNICOLOR!

Taking the GRE tomorrow (grad school entry exam, for those from not USA who call their tests differently) may not be around much today.

Strategically, I think the economy being in the dumps as it is makes it a poor decision to come rolling out a new edition of a game people are likely to need or want to dump hundreds of dollars on.


hellz yeah. this is going to end awesomely.


they seriously need to do an indiegogo for this.

I'm fairly confident that I have a very good assessment with YD. He puts up threads that are deliberately silly and designed to get attention.

It's been working.

Yes. and that's all I'm saying as I'm not motivated enough to click your links.
I'd click the link. I learned something.
Yeah, that was actually a rather interesting page to read.

I totally get Playboy for the articles.

Of course it does. It also makes it difficult to criticize the Palestinian "terrorist" organizations for targeting civilian targets. As much as accepting this leaves a dry taste in my mouth.

I got no difficulties. It serves no purpose, is probably counterproductive, and just makes them look like the a###&$#s that they are.


Israel's army exists for a reason other than bullying Palestinians is my point.

What, you want them to assault army bases instead? Israel has what, the sixth largest military in the world? Face it, the only thing they can affect is civilian targets. Against military targets, they have nothing, no chance, no hope. And due to their lack of resources, their operations WILL cost them people.

I'm sorry, but I'm reminded of the 6 Day War for some reason.

Israel:
50,000 troops
214,000 reserves
300 combat aircraft
800 tanks[3]

Total troops: 264,000
100,000 deployed

The Gang of Belligerants:
Egypt: 240,000
Syria, Jordan, and Iraq: 307,000
957 combat aircraft
2,504 tanks[3]

Total troops: 547,000
240,000 deployed


Thing is, Hamas should've learned what Hitler should've learned from the London blitz: you don't break the enemy's back by just bombing all their s&*& on and on ad nausea. You just piss them off royally.

"We shall go on to the end. We shall fight in France, we shall fight on the seas and oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be. We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender, and if, which I do not for a moment believe, this island or a large part of it were subjugated and starving, then our Empire beyond the seas, armed and guarded by the British Fleet, would carry on the struggle, until, in God's good time, the New World, with all its power and might, steps forth to the rescue and the liberation of the old."

Saying Terrorist is a boo word is odd. They are using violence to terrorize people in an attempt to advance their political aims. That is what a Terrorist is. Whether it is Hamas, the IRA, the Unabomber, elements of the US Army in Vietnam, or Vlad Tepes.

The key is that we only call certain groups of people who "use violence to terrorize people in an attempt to advance their political aims" terrorists and whether we call them that or not depends on our political aims.

That doesn't change what they are.

"The Dresden atrocity, tremendously expensive and meticulously planned, was so meaningless, finally, that only one person on the entire planet got any benefit from it. I am that person. I wrote this book, which earned a lot of money for me and made my reputation, such as it is. One way or another, I got two or three dollars for every person killed. Some business I'm in." -Kurt Vonnegut


Maybe that's where the Australians got their name from: The Ancient Umpire of Austria.


Afghanistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Pakistan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan. All named after some dude named Stan.

I don't know who Stan was, but he sure did get around a lot. Maybe he's some kind of culture hero or god king. Maybe he's like their Odin or Zeus.

Stan: definitely the Man.

I picked up Sass and Sorcery. It's gorgeous. Splendid. Charming.


They also don't know what "lane discipline" is in the U.S.A.
Plus they give driver's licenses to any dumbass.
It's our psyche.


we revere honor and not dignity.

Plus no f~&%ing respect for authority.

We can still hang out with you, right?

Elvis Presley was making a movie. He was riding a motorcycle alone, singing some song or another. There were backup singers on the track, and they wanted to remove them. Elvis said to leave the backup singers in.

Somebody asked Elvis where the backup singers were because he was riding along alone and Elvis replied something to the effect of, "hell I don't know, I guess the same damn place as the drummer and guitarist."

That nebulous place is usually where I leave the rape stories.

Actually it did happen to a character of mine - though the fact that were schoolboys at the time is probably the most relevant factor.

It could've been the basis of this awesome quest, to the Temple of Osiris, to get a magical wooden artifact created by Isis herself.

Because there is always a cleric of some love and/or fertility deity who would have a regenerate spell ready just in case something like this happens.

How convenient that there isn't a sacred chastity belt spell, with all those orcs running around all over the place.

I searched rape and emasculation at tvtropes.com. The closest trope to emasculation was something about "A day in her apron."

It's a totally untapped trope, man. Gee I wonder why.

"Whelp, the dire lion got a critical. He removed your external genitalia."
Never gonna happen. You'll never see it.


I avoid it.

Look at it this way: with all these bladed weapons being used so liberally in the game all the time, have you noticed that nobody ever gets emasculated with a battleaxe ever?

How about this for a plot line....
"The evil cleric got a really nice critical with his morning star. Both of your character's testicles have been crushed beyond repair. They had to be removed, for the spikes of the morningstar were treated with some form of contagion and the wound would've led to an abscess."

Sorry; your character has no balls. Don't you want revenge? Don't you want to seek out a wizard who knows some secret treatment? You have to capture a troll for him though. Alive.

How come nobody ever uses the emasculation trope?


Also, half the homeless population is kids.


cracked.com about homelessness

seems like the alcoholism can follow homelessness as well as lead to it,....being homeless is f&&$ing boring and people drink to kill time.
