    Falcon and winter solider

    I know this is a hot take but I'm not interested in a BLACK PANTHER movie WITHOUT T'Challa. They recast people ALL THE TIME. Why is this character so precious that they cant or wont do that. I mean I know why but still. I know at some point Shuri DOES take over the mantle of BP but T'challa...

    So what are you reading this year 2021?

    I'm reading/have read: CASTE by Isabel Wilkerson, THE SUM OF US by Heather McGhee, MEDIOCRE by Ijeoma Oluo, SHOW YOUR WORK by Austin Kleon, THE COLOR OF LAW by Richard Rothstein, and HITLER'S AMERICAN MODEL by James Q. Whitman.

    Falcon and winter solider

    If it's like all of the other's we've seen thus far it's one and one. But it does seem to be a balance between the Serum+VitaRays of Erskine's method and the blue intravenous liquid given to the Hydra Operatives in CA: CIVIL WAR. Mostly I'm guessing due to the time between Walker palmed the...

    Falcon and winter solider

    Are you seriously doing the "reverse racism" thing with the Wakandans here? When it was T'Challa who clearly at the end of CA: Civil War not only stops Zemo from committing suicide but also turns Zemo BACK over to the authorities? When in BLACK PANTHER when T'Challa wanted to kill Klaw he...

    Falcon and winter solider

    Your first and second sentences are spot on. But while he was anti-Avengers in CIVIL WAR, tool he used to extract his vengeance were in fact Super-Soldiers (Bucky and Steve). He framed one in order to draw him out to get intelligence about the others AND what really happened to Tony's...

    Falcon and winter solider

    You can argue that she amplified his fear, which pushed him to take the actions that he took. But at what point can you claim that he was a puppet and what point can you claim he's responsible for his actions? I'll give you the fact that he was already suffering from PTSD from the Battle of NY...

    Falcon and winter solider

    Not only that but the conversation he has with Lamar after the Dora Milaje fight. It's pretty strongly stated that some of the things they did in Afghanistan when they served together left a mark on their souls, Walker in particular. Lamar: You already have three Medals of Honor. You...

    Falcon and winter solider

    Youre Right. If you're the owner of the car, no one would reasonably hold you responsible. But if you're the manufacturer? YES, You would absolutely be held responsible. And Tony, SPECIFICALLY knew that he was taking a big risk in incorporating what he found in at Strucker's base into his...

    Falcon and winter solider

    I just rewatched that episode and that Flag Smasher was NOT a dangerous enemy. He was terrified and fleeing for his life. While fleeing, he threw a stone (?) garbage bin at Walker. Not as an attempt to hurt him but to put something between him and Walkers wrath. He turns and continues to flee...

    D&D 5E "Punishing" Player Behavior

    There are reasons why people are heroic. There are reasons why people are selfish. I don't think selfishness, sociopathy and cruelty are things to aspire to or excuse. Are they part of the real world? OVERWHELMINGLY. Which is why I don't want them from players in my game. For me its a...

    D&D 5E "Punishing" Player Behavior

    I'm okay with that sort of thing to a point. But I've had my fill of sociopaths early on in my gaming years, if casual murder and assault is someone's thing and especially if they don't expect consequences? That's a problem. and those are people that I don't want to game with much less be around.

    D&D 5E "Punishing" Player Behavior

    And I'd just as soon as not foster sociopathic behavior in any games that I run. Especially for new players. If the tone that I set at the table isnt fun because they want to be murder hobos or sociopaths? I'm perfectly fine NOT playing with those people.

    The Invincible (amazon prime series)

    Just wanted to put this out there in case it wasn't clear because I keep seeing people mentioning and obviously concerned about the gore... I've read the entire series from beginning to end more than once. So far they're being fairly consistent with the comic. They've changed some things...

    Falcon and winter solider

    Right around 2014 - 2015 in a storyline started by Rick Remender. A villain named named the Iron Nail removed or nullified Steve's Super Soldier Serum reverting him to an old man. Steve named Sam his successor at that point and Sam was Captain America for about two to three years (?) in the comics.

    Marvel vs DC

    And I'm guessing that was in the 70's and 80's NYC as now it's a VERY different city as it was then. Nowhere as dangerous or exciting as it was in the 70's and 80's. It's ALL pretty bland now.

    Falcon and winter solider

    All of this reminds me of the stories I've read from black men who served in WWII how they witnessed German POW's being treated better than they were. And how a many of them, even in uniform, retuned home to be victims of harassment and lynchings.

    Falcon and winter solider

    I don't know if anyone has mentioned this yet but what Bucky does in that second episode is pretty great without shining a huge light on what he's doing. When he takes Sam to see Isaiah Bradley it shows he's been listening to Sam. He's upset with him about not taking the mantle but he's trying...

    Luke Crane Resigns From Kickstarter

    Oh no man, NO WORRIES! I got that from what you wrote. It's hard to read tone sometimes but yours was pretty clear.
