    S stands for--Saturn
     
    The teenage son of the arch-villain Kronos--a scientific genius with a suit of superpowered armor.  In his alternate reality, Kronos was the greatest enemy of freedom and justice, determined to impose his will upon the entire world by any means necessary.  When the heroes of that world finally caught up with him, he had an escape plan ready--a gateway to an alternate dimension, our dimension.  What Kronos didn't count on was his son taking the path through the gateway for himself--and rigging it to self-destruct so that his father or anyone else could not follow.
     
    With a scientific intellect rivalling his father's, Saturn is determined to make his own way in this new world and help its people, not impose his will upon them with brute force.  With his weapons and combat training he can hold his own in a fight with agents or low-level supers, but prefers not to fight at all, using his intellect to solve any problem and defeat any criminal.  Life is going well for him so far--but there is always the possibility that his father will come looking for him.  It's not something he cares to think about.

    Ha! My Friend Francis is a mod on that site, and many, if not most of the light box photos are by him. Several of the subjects are from my collection. It’s a good site, especially for movie and video game references.

    Nonononono.
     
    From the Wikipedia entry--
    In 1977, Jones made his debut in his iconic voiceover role as Darth Vader in the science fiction blockbuster film Star Wars: A New Hope, which he would later reprise for the sequels The Empire Strikes Back (1980) and Return of the Jedi (1983). Darth Vader was portrayed in costume by David Prowse in the film trilogy, with Jones dubbing Vader's dialogue in postproduction because Prowse's strong West Country accent was deemed unsuitable for the role by director George Lucas.  At his own request, Jones was uncredited for the release of the first two Star Wars films,[28] though he would be credited for the third film and eventually also for the first film's 1997 "Special Edition" re-release. As he explained in a 2008 interview:
     
    "When Linda Blair did the girl in The Exorcist, they hired Mercedes McCambridge to do the voice of the devil coming out of her. And there was controversy as to whether Mercedes should get credit. I was one who thought no, she was just special effects. So when it came to Darth Vader, I said, no, I'm just special effects. But it became so identified that by the third one, I thought, OK I'll let them put my name on it."
     
    If he hated the role, why return to it at the end of Star Wars: Revenge Of The Sith?  And again for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story?  Granted, his involvement may have been not much more than a morning's worth of studio sessions and a really nice lunch, but why even bother with that if he hated it?
     
    I agree that James Earl Jones has a long, full career that goes well beyond being the voice of Darth Vader.  May he have continued success in the years to come.  And may his birthday have included lots of good times, good friends and cake.  Especially cake.

    God says to the angel Gabriel: "I'm going to create a land called Canada."
     
    "And Canada will be one of the largest and wealthiest in the world, stretching from the Arctic circle to the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, with breathtaking natural beauty and vast natural resources.
     
    And Canada will have a rich cultural heritage, and its people will be renowned all over the world for their kindness and politeness."
     
    The angel Gabriel says to God: "Wow, this Canada sounds amazing! Aren't you worried that this land will be so great that it will make the other countries jealous?"
     
    God chuckled and said "Nah, wait until you hear the accent I'm going to give them!"

    A few weeks ago, I prayed to win the lottery.  But I didn't win.
     
    The next week, I prayed again.  "I could do so much good with that money, God.  Please let me win."  But I didn't win.
     
    Yesterday, I prayed again.  "Please, God, let me win the lottery.  I could help so many people!"
     
    Then a voice boomed down from above.  "At least meet me halfway and buy a lottery ticket!"

    I mean, he is "the Mad Titan," not "the Debatable Titan."
     
    Thanos, despite being extremely intelligent, perceptive, and cunning, had been living with his delusion of saving the Universe for so long, he was no longer capable of seeing the logical flaws in his position. A fault not at all uncommon among humans, as well.
     
    But remember that Thanos' example of negative outcomes isn't Earth, it's his home world of Titan, where the disaster he predicted actually came to pass. Whether it came to pass for the reasons Thanos believes is another issue.

    Jesus and Satan decided to settle their dispute by doing a typing contest.
     
    Satan had a last generation computer, three monitors, two keyboards, he was a beast dishing out words, typing whole paragraphs in seconds, everyone was astonished by his typing skills.
     
    Jesus had a Pentium IV, barely finding the letters and slowly typing with only his index fingers. Everyone was sure about the outcome and feared for the fate of humanity.
     
    The bigger text after one hour would take the prize. At the 59 minute mark Satan had typed 3000 pages of text while Jesus was barely finishing his second, when suddenly the lights went out and both computers reset.
     
    When it all came back, Satan had lost all his work and Jesus, with his one and a half pages was the winner of the clash.
     
    Moral of the story: Only Jesus saves.
