    all I'm saying is I think Chris Pine would make a great Iron Fist

    Chris Egan would make a better one

    Checking Christopher Lloyd's IMDB revealed that he recently played a character named Lars in a movie called "Excuse Me for Living."

    He looked like this:

    I'm debating turning it into a sig. It wouldn't be my first Christopher Lloyd sig.

    Edit: Better pic!

    Also, Aziz is totally right, he needs to be in a Marvel movie, and I can't think of any Indian superheroes, which is weird.

    There's a supervillain, Commcast. Or Black Box, I think he also went by.

    I... I know this isn't right, but they could use him in Iron Man 4 as Black Box, the supervillain tech support.

    "Yes, sir, have you tried rebooting your Hammertech Mark II power armor? Yes, sir, I realise War Machine is shooting at you, but if you could just land, sir. Sir, sir, there is no reason for yelling at me. Oh, you are on fire, I apologize."

    I love Christopher Lloyd but, I mean

    He's 74

    Maybe someone younger? Better physique?

    Unless you're just suggesting a David Prowse/James Earl Jones situation here
    that is exactly what I'm suggesting

    Okay, having watched the video, I'm pretty sure he was joking.

    Also, Aziz is totally right, he needs to be in a Marvel movie, and I can't think of any Indian superheroes, which is weird. I know of Chinese heroes, Japanese heroes, Russian heroes, and even a couple of Vietnamese heroes, but I can't think of any Indians. I guess there's Kavita Rao, but she's not a superhero, really.

    Indian Spider-Man?

    An Indian version of a superhero doesn't count as an Indian superhero, at least in my opinion.

    I had this exact debate last year on the boards around C2E2.

    Marvel should tell their writers like hey, the next time you're making a new hero, think about making him Indian

    Ooh, I like this idea. Maybe a joke about why on Earth the comic chooses to live in New York. (Answer: Because during a major catastrophe, you'd rather be smack dab in the middle of superhero central, instead of Bumfuck, Alaska where most superheroes couldn't even find on a map)

    EDIT: And what the hell is up with Thor? Seriously, what kind of viking god doesn't have a huge beard?

    I mean, they were on the right track with the new Green Lantern, but Simon Baz is pretty cliched at times.

    I would love a superhero who just happens to be Indian. His name can be Steve Singh and born in Kansas.

    He doesn't need to be a stereotypical indian where he's from a family of doctors or cabbies or whatever. Just have an Indian hero.

    also isnt New Green Lantern half Lebanese and half white?

    BedigunzBedigunz Registered User regular
    Yeah and he grew up in Detroit on 9/11 so he got picked on and harassed a lot.

    It's interesting because it shows him overcoming fear by overcoming cultural fear is interesting, but they don't do much with it after the writers reveal that.

    The best thing about Iron Man 3 is
    That Tony Stark beats the bad guy by throwing money at him until he explodes

    That is the best description of the ending I've ever heard, and it made me laugh.

    Pretty convincing and SPOILER FILLED argument about the nature of Captain America: The Winter Soldier's plot.

    The short, ALSO POTENTIALLY SPOILER FILLED, version:
    It seems to be based on the old miniseries Nick Fury vs. SHIELD and focuses around SHIELD being infiltrated(in the comic it was by advanced LMDs) and Nick Fury, who discovers it, being branded a rogue agent and forced to go on the run. Cap, Falcon and Widow are brought in to hunt him down. Obviously they change sides eventually

    The LMDs were built by Arnim Zola in NFvS and we have a confirmation he is returning so it is possible Winter Soldier is either Bucky souped up with LMD tech or a full-on Bucky LMD.

    It's good, but I know the blues are always lurking. It's my job to stop 'em from darkening into blacks. Yours, too, if you've got it. It's workable, and once you realize it's a visitor that comes around every now and then, and you can wink at it and welcome it before you send it away for awhile? You'll be okay.

    yep

    'cause I was interested in how Vulcan got to be Emperor of the Shi'ar, I picked up Emperor Vulcan awhile back (overpayed for a pretty beat up copy; I wasn't too happy) and got kind of a middling story that didn't really explain anything.

    I later learned I needed to pickup X-Men: Deadly Genesis and Uncanny X-Men: Rise and Fall of the Shi'ar Empire. Deadly Genesis was alright, though I was a bit spoiled by knowing who the mystery character was ahead of time. Also it had a lot more of the "Professor X is a total asshole"-ness that I'm not huge on. I'm surprised to learn this was Vulcan's first appearance. I figured he was an older character than 2006.

    Rise and Fall of the Shi'ar empire was pretty fun space epic though. The two books together made a pretty great build-up (I just wish I didn't already know where they were heading!); and I'll need to re-read Emperor Vulcan now that I know what the hell is going on.

    Also read Iron Man: Extremis, which was.. kinda lame, to be honest. I didn't like it at all. Interesting to see how
    Iron Man 3
    utilized (or didn't utilize) components of the story.

    The elements in Extremis that got used through Invincible Iron Man were some of the best futurism in comics

    Deadly Genesis sucks but I like Rise and Fall of the Shi'ar quite a bit.

    That and Mike Carey's Supernovas was the embryonic stage of this current golden age of x-books.

    was that the one with the crazy people living in the ship that was in the future or something, and they fucked up northstar and aurora and made them attack the x-men?
