    Should be a Deadpool themed thread. Just toss in all the batshit crazy advertising and it'll probably fill an OP.

    Okay the real reason I made this is because the final member of the new Thunderbolts was revealed

    Fuck yeeeeah

    The book is by Jim Zub and John Malin and despite the initial tagline, they are still heroic in nature

    Apparently Jon Malin is basically Liefeld Jr.

    What happened to Fixer there? He apparently grew a bunch of hair and turned white (or possibly Asian)?

    Also dang it Bucky, get a haircut! You're not brainwashed anymore!

    Maaaan

    A Thunderbolts book led by Bucky should be 100% my thing

    But Zub hasn't really wowed me at all with anything I've read of his and I actively disliked Skullkickers and that art is abysmal

    Kinda bummed

    Have you tried Wayward? I've really enjoyed the first couple trades.

    Man, didn't you just drop a bunch of comics you actually liked? Look at this like a blessing in disguise. :razz:

    I liked Legends of Tomorrow well enough. It was very pilot-y, so hopefully it'll get better with more episodes

    The Hawks are definitely the worst, though, which is a shame because they should be awesome

    It's like someone at Marvel saw what DC was doing with revitalizing everything 90s, thought "I wanna piece of that action", and found an artist who decided it was a good idea.

    I guess Agent Carter is on TV in America, but here it's just on Netflix and they've put up the start of season 2 now. I guess new eps are only coming a couple of days after they've been on TV in America, because Netflix says ep3 is coming the 28th and Wiki says 26th.

    I enjoyed the legends pilot more than I expected to, but it was also more or less free of character melodrama. I fully expect that the hawks will be the vehicle for CW's requisite amount of silly relationship drama, which hopefully won't bog things down too much

    I thought Vandal Savage was a bit dull, which is a shame because he's great as the smartest person in a room or a crazy immortal in the comics.

    There's a rumor going at around that DC is going to have a big relaunch later this year with everything having a new #1, and a greater focus on properties that currently have film or TV shows on the immediate horizon. I wonder if they'll keep the "new 52" branding if true

    if that means they're also going to try to shift the comics to be more like the film properties

    New 52 Supes has already killed at least one villain, hasn't he?

    They're due for an awful half-baked reboot

    Haven't watched Legends yet, but as for this week's episodes

    Agent Carter>Flash>Arrow

    though I'm more into this season of Arrow than Flash (mostly because Dahrk is a way more interesting villain than Zoom), this was a flat-ass mid-season opening episode for Arrow.

    didn't they drop the New 52 branding after Convergence?

    I wonder what will happen to the straight to DVD animated movies if DC does another reboot. They were trying to make a new continuity based on New 52 with the movies.

    Maybe they'll be allowed to do more stuff of their own again. It would be good if they were allowed to do more stuff with Gods and Monsters, that's actually a good "darker and grittier" reimagining.

    I just watched the season 2 premiere of Agent Carter.
    Is Zero Matter based on something in the comics? I tried searching for it and the only thing I could find was that it was in Agents of SHIELD where it was called Darkforce.

    EDIT: Or I could just search for that other name and find it immediately.

    Yeah, I think that branding officially stopped with the last new crop of #1s that they marketed as DCYou.

    Nah, it's darkforce. That's what they were calling it in the build up for the season.
