    Am I the only one who thinks a bullet in the eye should affect Superman?

    Like not damage his eye or anything, but at least the equivalent of getting a grain of sand in your eye

    It technically shouldn't be hitting him because of the bioeletric field.
    But yeah, if supes can be blinded by sand then he would at least be temporarily blinded by a bullet to the eye.

    Humor can be dissected as a frog can, but dies in the process.

    That henchman was hardcore as shit

    You just unloaded enough .50 cal rounds to cut an apartment complex in half directly into this guy's chest and it doesn't do shit. Your gun kills itself before doing so much as discomfiting him. So what do you do?

    Apparently you pull out your 9mm and walk up to the guy, put the barrel against his eyeball, and pull the trigger.

    Because your stones are so damn big

    It is a fantastic piece of henchmen logic.

    "Maybe nobody's ever shot Superman in the eyeball before. If I ever fight him, that's what I'm gonna try."

    I thought that was actually a pretty effective moment. I dunno, I guess there's just a feeling that eyes are more vulnerable to bullets than your chest. If anything, seeing things ricochet off Superman's chest doesn't have the same shock value as off his eyeball.

    Like, I know it was a huge minigun, but we have vests and armor plating and stuff and people getting shot in the chest, even multiple times, is a survivable event, and one often seen in movies.

    But shooting his eye? Fuck, you really get the indestructibility of him in that moment.

    So my two and a half year old son loves Iron Man. I got him an iron man action figure a few months ago, it's about 6 inches tall, you can squeeze the hips and the waist will turn with the arm raised up for Arm Blasting Action. He flies it around and makes shooting noises, it's pretty great.

    A week ago, my wife took him to Target with her in search of a Buzz Lightyear replacement toy. Instead, he found a different iron man action figure. It's about 2 inches tall, and it has a ridiculous amount of articulation. Every joint can be posed etc.

    "Baby Iron Man!" He exclaimed, holding the box to his chest. He insisted on purchasing the toy instead of Buzz.

    Now, the posable Baby Iron Man will wrap its arms around the bigger Iron Man, and they fly around together.

    "Mama Iron Man, Baby Iron Man" he says, while playing with them. Mama Iron Man will put the Baby Iron Man to sleep, feed it, etc. If he can't find the big one, he makes the Baby Iron Man call out for its mama and get scared.


    Kids are great.

    Well yeah. Honestly though, there are a lot of challenges in playing someone physically that aren't there when you only have to provide a voice. Tim Daly also had the advantage of simply the best writing that Superman has ever had in any media in JLU. If memory serves, he didn't actually play the role in STAS, the guy from The Fugitive TV show did.

    Wikipedia credits him with S:tAS. You are correct, though. But Daly just brought so much gravitas and humanity to Supes that now, just like with Kevin Conroy on B:tAS, hearing any other voice for those characters is jarring.

    Keep watching for the punchline.
    Superman's faking up the violent and awful, while really going with his standard minimum necessary force approach.

    okay yeah here's my opinion of that fight

    he appeared to lose using his normal methods, and he only won when he seemed like he was using the elite's methods, even if it was still non-lethal and everyone was safe

    i'd have preferred if he had won without the pretense of snapping because as is it seems like in order to win he needed to appear scary and violent

    I don't ever mind violence or anything like that

    But I still thought that fight was lame as hell.

    Pretty much. It isn't a OH MAN THEY ARE GOING DOWN IN FLAMES thing or even a likely event

    But when a dude who bought a massive chunk of your company suggests something, people tend to at least listen

    Would they reboot, though?

    I'd want them to start fresh

    But I'm not sure they wouldn't just grandfather the Webb films in

    If they did reboot, they might want to hold on to them a bit first

    I doubt they'd reboot

    They'd probably do like with Hulk and have the previous movie be like semi-canon
    Except they'd keep the core actors this time

    Also the Spidey mythos is so dense with great storylines and character dynamics and supporting cast and so many worthy villains, that he really should have a TV show

    I mean, he should have movies too

    But a TV show in addition to that would be required to make sure he was optimally represented

    And hey, let's give him the web cape, or at least the armpit webbing

    i don't know if marvel can legally just bring in the canon from the ASM stuff, but I mean they nearly put the Oscorp building into Avengers so maybe they could? if so that'd be aces.

    Well worst case scenario, they can have Garfield as Spider-Man and just make vague references to a version of events similair to the ASM movies.

    For a second I read this as Gandalf as Spider-man

    which would still be pretty cool

    I disagree. They'd recast for that, like with Incredible Hulk.

    I don't see why they couldn't?

    just say that ASM1/2 was like a month-ish before Avengers

    Hulk's been to Harlem, but Spider-Man hangs out in Queens/Mid-town Manhattan most of the time so there's not too much an issue there

    during Avengers, Spidey was swinging around getting people out of harm's way
