Another life fact.

This is true.

Funny thing is I got into comics because my dad read them since he was a kid. He was always a Marvel guy. Thor, Fantastic Four, and the X-Men being his favorite. So I got into comics reading his Marvel stuff. During the 90s when comics turned to shit for the most part I dropped most Marvel stuff and switched to DC. Never looked back except for X-Men which has really become a love/hate relationship with me. So my dad and I always argue over which is better.

Gotcha, I'll give it a try sometime here, I enjoy Metroidvania games and the Luchador theme seems interesting. And we can't all like every game, but at least you gave it a shot.



I don't know if I'd say unbeatable, but definitely close. I have no problem agreeing that Supes could easily take Bats in reality though. It's just that when it comes to characters in animes (such as DBZ) they get so crazily overpowered and there's so many different types of storylines and plot holes/twists that they basically become godlike as well, that a fight between Superman and Goku (or quite a few other anime characters) could probably be a standstill in the long run, since even when either of them "die", they always come back anyway.


That's true.

I would just like to state...

Ahaha what the everloving Fuck?


You don't like my drunken rant about Superman?

Everyone likes to show Batman beating superman after frank miller and later jim lee did it. The trope has gotten kinda stale at this point.


This.

No -- the "character", and I use that term loosely, doesn't deserve my respect. He's basically the result of taking a group of 8 year old boys, throwing them in a room with a pile of sugar and then asking them "if you had super hero powers, what would they be?" and getting about every result imaginable. (I know he wasn't created like this, but he might have well as been).


Right, but his creation was before almost every other superhero existed, so it was actually really fresh and novel at the time. The only reason he's perceived that way now is because so many other characters have come out that are rip-offs of him.

I like you.


I like you too :grouphug:

I highly suggest you go read some good Superman stories like Kingdom Come and Red Son.

Also, Guacamelee is awesome. Still having fun with Defiance as well.


Hell yeah, gonna throw in Up Up and Away as another great Superman story.

Gotta ask, which publisher is worse with the alternates? DC or Marvel? Which one has more drastic differences between the alternate realities/timelines?


They're about equal in the amount, but I think DC does a far better job of it. To be fair that's because DC has always dealt with a multiverse since the silver age (it went away for a little while, but it came back).


This. DC has been designed with a multiverse in mind.

Marvel has better fighting games.


Truth, although it looks like DC is finally going to get a decent one come Tuesday.

As for the Power Girl bashing, go read the Conner/Palmiotti run on her series. Great run that played off a lot of Peej's perception with people who only know her by her costume. Also Conner's art is fantastic.


Just to be clear, I personally wasn't bashing Power Girl -- I just know that her costume with the "boob window" is considered to be ridiculous among a lot of people, especially those not really into comics, so I was using that to play off Panzer's statement about ridiculous costumes is all.

And I find that surprising, because it seems like there's a huge amount of different Batman and Superman universes or whatever but I don't know enough about Marvel to have encountered a lot outside of Earth-616.

I'm not following how Superman clones (Supergirl, Superboy, etc?) change the perception of Superman to be overpowered with almost no weaknesses?

And I'm definitely not so sure about Injustice...

DC does have more universes, but they still handle it better. Granted after New 52 I'm still not sure how many survived.

I think Jimbo was referring more to your comment about respect. While it's easy to not consider Superman anything special today, without him there wouldn't be superheroes.

I changed my PSN 4x I'm gonna stick with this one

Wow, why so many times?

Love that game so fucking much. It's wonderful.
Where are you at?

I'm about to save the Mountain Nymph.


I highly suggest you go read some good Superman stories like Kingdom Come and Red Son.

Also, Guacamelee is awesome. Still having fun with Defiance as well.

This. Red Son is one of my most favorite stories of all time just because it really shows what Superman could accomplish if he set his will to it. I also think Frosty might like All-Star Superman if he could get past some of the little silly things.

I don't know if anyone plays Minecraft, but if you do, I have a story to tell. I've come back to Minecraft after a very long absence.

I saw my first spider jockey. I shit my pants, and though I didn't believe my eyes (I didn't know they existed prior to the introduction), I didn't hesitate to run in the other direction. Even with its arrows pushing me away even faster, I still couldn't get away. The last shot pushed me down into a ravine, whereupon there was splatter and spider jockey shared a hearty laugh with its trusted arachnid steed.

The end.

Spoiler

YES, IT'S REAL AND IT'S BEAUTIFUL.

I haven't played in quite some time, but damn. That makes me want to start it up again. :drool:

if comic book heroes dressed less ridiculously and if the ideas behind their powers weren't so tacky and uninspired, maybe i'd join the superhero bandwagon. of course, i guess that's the appeal, isn't it? i don't know. i'm really out of touch with that sort of stuff.

You sound like the reason that indie comics exist. After playing CAH against you, I can honestly say that superhero comics aren't for you and with the exceptions of maybe the magic heavy stuff in DC that they probably never will be.

Dat art. Game's totally gorgeous.

It really is. Can't fucking get over how beautiful it is.

Gotta ask, which publisher is worse with the alternates? DC or Marvel? Which one has more drastic differences between the alternate realities/timelines?

As Rei said they're pretty equal, but Marvel has been shitting out tons of insane alternate realities over the last 5 years so that most of the DC ones get drowned. So far the favorite at my LCS has been the alternate universe where Cyclops is a black soldier in the Civil War.

They're about equal in the amount, but I think DC does a far better job of it. To be fair that's because DC has always dealt with a multiverse since the silver age (it went away for a little while, but it came back).

As for the Power Girl bashing, go read the Conner/Palmiotti run on her series. Great run that played off a lot of Peej's perception with people who only know her by her costume. Also Conner's art is fantastic.

I agree with all of this wholeheartedly and also throw in the Geoff Johns Power Girl stuff. Really heartbreaking shit.

Also

DC > Marvel.

Another life fact.

Pretty true. Even given that Marvel has been trying to step it up over the last couple of years. Beginning to think that Marvel will never get one up on DC.

This is true.

Funny thing is I got into comics because my dad read them since he was a kid. He was always a Marvel guy. Thor, Fantastic Four, and the X-Men being his favorite. So I got into comics reading his Marvel stuff. During the 90s when comics turned to shit for the most part I dropped most Marvel stuff and switched to DC. Never looked back except for X-Men which has really become a love/hate relationship with me. So my dad and I always argue over which is better.

Change dad to uncle and this is how I got in. The only reason I actually changed over to DC was because of Batman, Superboy, and the Teen Titans. I read a lot of both nowadays though. The most fun I've had in a while is comparing how Marvel and DC does major events and crossovers. Most of the DC ones kick the absolute shit out of Marvel.

Most of that stems from DC having better marketed their alternate universes with different costumes and better stories over the decades. Most of Marvel's alternate universes (outside of Age of Apocalypse) are relegated to pretty c-level books. Check out the Marvel list - http://en.wikipedia...._(Marvel_Comics)

Just Superboy (Supergirl's his cousin). And it's because they aren't as strong as him, I'm guessing? At least that's what I think Jimbo is trying to get at. I think Superman's being overpowered stems from people actually using him to do what he really could if his powers were real. Same with the Flash. His comics really didn't get into what he could actually do with his powers until mid to late 90's. Superboy was almost up to Superman's level when they killed the last DCU, so he may get back up to being that powerful eventually.

Edit: Okay, totally misunderstood things in the beginning. I think Rei was right about it.

Don't worry, Panzer. Superhero comics generally don't work for me, either. Like, I'll read Red Son and Long Halloween and enjoy them well enough, but that's about the extent of it.

You're still the worst Cards Against Humanity player ever, though.

it's just personal taste, lol. i don't get those cheesy 2 inch wide eye-mask covers, i don't get the spandex, i don't get the horrible eye for color design or the need to dress up that way in the first place. yeah it's symbolic, batman is afraid of bats and shit, faced his fear, fights crime dressed as a bat. i get why people dig it, but whenever that dude comes on screen i just want to leave the theater because he looks ridiculous. the city's ridiculous, the cops are retarded, it's all just outrageous to me because it somehow takes itself seriously.

i havent read comic books but i'd be willing to bet that they come across a lot better in stylized panels than they are in all of this hollywood and videogame bullshit that's been going on. because all that one liner dialogue is the fucking worst when you use it outside of drawings, and all the costumes are complete cheese. it works for stuff like MvC, but for narrative driven games/movies i just don't understand how anyone can take it seriously. dude wears royal blue clashed with bright red boots and cape, has a giant 'S' on chest, and they're making a dark movie about his origins? wut

and these hero concepts are just products of kids' brainstorming during recess. like oh shit, what if he could shoot lasers out his eyes! dayyyum, what about this? -- CLAWS GROW OUT OF HIS KNUCKLES!! Wait, backstory! We need backstory...well he's a geek of course, and gets picked on! yeah, but one day a mutant spider bites him and now he becomes strong and attractive, jizzes webs from his wrists, beats up bullies and gets the girl! "with great power comes great responsibility" wahh, deep development!

self-serving nerd fantasy bullshit, the kind that any kid could come up with in his sleep, but happened to be drawn by very talented artists.

this is all very ignorant and unfair of me to say, and i'll eat my balls for saying it, but that's just a prejudice i have. i don't get that shit at all. on my list of "things i need to accept and undertand," superheroes are down there with the My Little Pony tv show.
