    I love the elevator scene in Winter Soldier.

    I think I heard the inspiration for that scene was "what if you trapped a bear in an elevator?"

    You can see what a remarkable difference Cap 2 was compared to Cap 1 and Avengers. In Cap 1 he would just kick a guy kind of far. In Cap 2 he would fluidly kick a couple of guys and shield toss a dude in like the same motion and it was so great.

    The pitch was trapping a gorilla in a roomful of trained soldiers.

    So I'm going to start getting the JL Darkseid War issues and as an accompaniment I'll get the JL volume 6 collection coming out at the end of the month, it's 10 issues at only 25 retail which is a pretty good deal. Despite the opinions of most here I enjoyed Forever Evil well enough (just the main series) and I want to check out the aftermath. Might get the FE tie-in volume as well.

    Yeah, and you can see the Uzi on his back as he walks forward with his rifle.

    Then he loses his knife and is all "who the fuck carries just one knife?" And pulls another

    You can never have too many knives, my father always used to tell me.

    This is also Gabe Newell's philosophy.

    like, how much hand-to-hand combat training did he get in Cap 1 really

    versus working out and shit with SHIELD

    Well, the super soldier serum is also supposed to make him a tactical genius, process information faster, and do insane stupid shit like calculate how to throw his shield so it always returns to him as an instinct.

    Oh almost certainly.

    What would happen if the bestest soldier got all the bestest training and was the bestest at it? It was cool to see him go from kind of throwing haymakers and winging his shield at people to all the elaborate bounces and super precise training that we got in WS.

    Thanks for all the suggestions regarding Hickmans Fantastic Four. I just noticed Comixology has the entire Fantastic Four/FF by Hickman in a discounted bundle for way cheaper than buying all the physical trades, so I'll see if I can squeeze some spare money towards it. I might skip Dark Reign though since that's not part of the bundle, nor is it on sale.

    BTW does anyone know when this sale will end?

    If I remember correctly, Chris Evans pushed for Cap being more agile in fights due to having played the tie-in game for the first Cap, which has Arkham Asylum style combat

    A real shame about the Aquabats not having a show now, due to the Hub being re-done or whatever.

    The audio cue of Winter Soldier's cyborg arm really helped as well. It gives you that fraction of a second warning that shit is going to get wrecked.

    It's as good as it's ever been. The post FE stuff saw the book re-energized in a big away, and the prologue and first issue of Darkseid War have been a blast. I will warn you though that the FE tie-in stuff was split between origin story issues for the crime syndicate, which were uniformly terrible, and a really awesome Cyborg story where he rallied the Metal men and fought the Grid.

    So someone mentioned something called "chlois" on twitter and it was weird enough that I had to investigate it? And it led to this:

    http://smallville.wikia.com/wiki/Chlois_theory
    The Chlois theory was the theory that Chloe Sullivan would eventually grow up to become the iconic character of Lois Lane, Clark Kent's girlfriend and reporting partner at the Daily Planet. However this theory was virtually scrapped as Chloe began to find her own unique destiny as Watchtower and as the wife of Oliver Queen.

    Oh, that's interesting, I wonder what...
    The biggest evidence against the Chlois theory is the introduction of Erica Durance as Lois Lane in Season 4.

    That seems like pretty good evidence...
    Chlois supporters counter that names and families don't matter, and that Chloe is more similar to the iconic Lois Lane than Smallville's version of Lois.

    oh

    Didn't Smallville kill Jimmy Olson and then introduce his brother who had the same name and thus was the "real" Jimmy Olson?

    Eventually, the Chlois theory did not become reality, but supporters of the Chlois theory point out that it doesn't matter if Chloe actually changed her name to Lois Lane. In their view, Chloe's character clearly demonstrates the characteristics of the iconic Lois Lane. In this "Names Don't Matter" version of the Chlois theory, Alison Mack's Chloe Sullivan has become the spiritual heir to the comic book concept of Lois Lane.

    On the other hand, other fans have pointed out that it did become reality in a very different manner, stating that Lois has been taking over Chloe's traits, especially in season 8,[1] and many viewers have criticized the destruction of a character to build up another[2][3][4][5] while others claim it was an homage. However, as Chloe embraces her role as Watchtower, more and more viewers began to realize that Chloe Sullivan has her own calling, one that not even the "real" Lois Lane could have.
