  1. Still my favorite CW superhero show. Minus Season 1.
  2. They've name dropped Spider-Man before too.
  3. Has there been any word on when this is going up on the Hero store?
  4. So, a Christian school objects to a depiction of God's promise not to wipe us out with another giant flood?* *And now that I think about it, that was one ominously specific promise.
  5. There's certainly no shortage of single issue voters when it comes to gun rights. Or on a lot of other hot button issues. I personally see that mindset as both myopic and perfectly natural. Politicians thrive by pushing all those buttons and sowing divisiveness.
  6. As far as I can see they're for themselves, first, yeah.
  7. It doesn't read to me like it's the gun rights activists that are the problem, rather that a militia group or groups plan to use the rally as cover to act out. Now, you could point out that militia groups are very likely for gun rights, but I think we have multiple groups, with Group A being normal protesters and Group B being radicals looking to capitalize on the event.
  8. I was willing to give him the benefit of the doubt on physicality and acting chops, but after reading that, I'm not sure I want to see what he brings to the character. He doesn't seem to have a good grasp on Batman or comics in general. We're going to get another movie that's going to shy away from the genre, I think.
  9. Sadly, we're lacking in that kind of politician these days, and I'm not optimistic that we'll find one any time soon. Well, maybe we will. Maybe there's a tipping point where people want that kind of politician again.
  10. If you're talking demeanor, I agree with you. If you're talking platform, it's the usual fear mongering. Because fear sells.
  11. Seems like Pattinson has some sage insights into the character: https://www.hindustantimes.com/hollywood/robert-pattinson-says-batman-isn-t-a-superhero-offers-explanation/story-hdBVgx3MCuiRkf0baERvNM.html
  12. I'm not seeing any Democrats playing the optimism and compassion game. 🤷‍♂️
  13. Fear sells. The best we can hope of is that the fear being sold is of something that's reasonable and not racist and xenophobic. Fear of the environment being destroyed, and fear of climate change being two I'd put in that category, but drumming up fear of people has a lot more immediacy, unfortunately.
