>Chase Young and Omi use the Fountain of Hui and Eagle Scope
>Three episodes later, they reveal that Chase was using the Reversing Mirror during that
>SO WHAT THE FUCK HAPPENED TO THOSE GIANT SPIDERS THAT WERE THE REASON THEY WERE USING THE FOUNTAIN OF HUI IN THE FIRST PLACE?
This bothered the fuck out of me when I was watching the show for the first time.
I wager my post of best character against your two-ton booty!
Since Bill & Ted, Godzilla, Doctor Who, Transformers, and 2001 all take place in the Marvel universe. Pitch to me a Civil War II plot for these franchises. Also, which side would the characters involved in the franchises take? Iron Man or Danvers?
So why did Kamala become so popular?
Continuing from page 8!
>YOU WANNA GET NUTS!? LET'S GET NUTS!
when the egotistical space-hunters have decided that things have gotten out of hand, maybe you need to rethink your life, huh Schaefer?
/co/, I want to cry. But I can't. Help me cry.
Please suggest the best comics and cartoons (or movies or books or whatever else) that tug at the heartstrings, but in a well-written manner rather than cheap pathos. Bittersweetness a huge plus.
Reduce me to a big blubbering mess of bitch tears.
Oh, well someone seems to have it uploaded onto YouTube.
Ok /co/ watch it now before it is taken down like Bee movie was taken off Porn Hub.
Could Frank go toe-to-toe with low tier Avengers like Widow or Hawkeye?
What does /co/ think of ultimatum?
Yeah. You used to go to a human school where everyone was the same.
Then you moved to an animal school 'cause Lyon is your last name.
You see, because "Lyon" and "Lion" sound the same and your school district administrators are immensely incompetent.
I remember the giraffe wanted to fuck you.
>American school district administrators
Well, at least that part was basically correct. I could honestly see something like this happening in the modern American education system if furry schools were an actual thing.
With a bunch of new art
Newsarama: Grant, I know you mentioned having done a lot of research as you tried to approach Wonder Woman in a different way. When you first started putting this together, what was the main approach you wanted to take?
>Grant Morrison: The first thing I did was, I kind of wanted to get away from the warrior woman first thing, because that didn't seem to fit with the original character, as I came into it. Everyone had taken that for granted for a long time. And I'm not saying that's a bad portrayal; I'm just saying that old characters like Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman have had a lot of incarnations and a lot of ways of working out a character, but I noticed that this particular aspect of the character had become quite prominent.
>And I thought, I'd like to do something different, because there's no point in doing the character if you don't have something different to say.
>So I went back to the original Marston stories and I was just blown away by the weird atmosphere, in the sense of an alternative culture and alternative sexuality that I think embodied the whole character, everything about the strips — you know, and all that ridiculous bondage stuff that was going on in almost every panel. It seemed like a very different feel than the current version of Wonder Woman, at least for me, anyway.
>You know, Diana doesn't carry a sword and shield in the original. She's got bracelets that can deflect any projectile. And she has the lasso that can make people obey her commands. So she's a kind of unbeatable person to fight, because she's also super-strong and fast and durable and the rest of it.
>It just seemed going back to that original version yielded a lot more material that I felt was more interesting in a modern context.
Nrama: Yet you're telling a new origin story of Wonder Woman that varies from the original. Were you trying to modernize it? Why alter it?
>Morrison: I went to the original Wonder Woman origin, and it's basically that Steve Trevor crashes on the island and Wonder Woman falls in love with him, and then she goes off to fight World War II hand-in-hand with her love. And her mother kind of waves her off.
>And I felt that, while that story was...
Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>Morrison: Yeah, and I think in subsequent portrayals, the Amazons have been shown as being trapped in Greek culture, operating at this weird pre-industrial level. But to me, them having technology makes much more sense. You know, 3,000 women on an island who've made the decision to have this absolute separatist approach from men wouldn't just sit there looking at seashells. They'd build a culture.
>So I had to come up with what culture was built and what kind of machines and technology they used. They've got their own propulsion systems and their own materials. They have philosophy, they have music, they have art. And they also have physical fitness and war. But that's only part of what, to me, would be a much greater culture.
>The way you see the Amazons and the way you see Diana — Diana alone can hold off a platoon of soldiers. The men in men's world have no chance against these women.
>So we kind of wanted to present them more in that way, that there was technology, there was culture. They weren't just trapped in some barbaric warrior stage.
Nrama: I think the technology isn't the only thing that makes it feel modern. You mentioned before that she's bored and wants to get away from her mom. I think that's a very modern idea — I feel like that's all over social media, that teens are bored and want to see the world. I know she's a lot older than a "teen," but relatively speaking, she's at that stage somewhat, isn't she? Did you think that would be relatable to modern audiences?
>Morrison: Yeah, yeah. That's what I hope, that people can relate to it. Again, I wasn't sure that the idea that she just instantly falls in love with the first man she sees was as modern, you know? In this story, she actually sees Steve Trevor as a way to escape from the prison that she feels like she's in. And she actually uses him, you know? She uses Steve more than she falls in love with him. But she uses him in a way that saves his life.
