Good evening owls of /co/,
We Counter-Earth shenanigans now
Fixer is almost as good with the bullshit as Moonstone.
Nice quads. I don't think I can stay around tonight though, I'm way too tired.
I read the storytime of that big Moonstone vs. Carol comic earlier and I thought it was pretty bad. What are the "good" Carol Danvers stories?
So you guys know I never manage to watch things, but now I have to watch Over the Garden Wall because apparently this magnificent bastard is one of the voices in it:
I don't like this Karla mask/costume nearly as much as the OG 'Meteorite' one.
sleep >>> storytime
also I don't agree with much in this thread (ignore all the Batfanon), but it's nice to see people talking about issues with current girl comics:
FabNic can be really mean that way
Hah, someone's got Karla's number
>i feel like a lot of lady-led comics have diminished stakes for ‘relatability’ and it rly bugs me
>where’s the fucked up trippy-ass cosmic shit with women?
>Marvel Super Heroes v1 #12-13 and Captain Marvel v1 #1-18 (although if you get bored of it skip to #18)
>Ms. Marvel v1 #1-23
>The Avengers issues in this thread
>Uncanny X-Men v1 #162-167
>Marvel Super-Heroes v2 #10-11 (aka Ms Marvel #24-25)
>Space Jammers I guess? Haven't read.
>Avengers v3, haven't read
He's a card!
I just realized there's going to be Zemo in name only in the MCU now, right? This is doing to be bad for comics Zemo, right?
Can DC at least give me Wonder WOMAN, CatWOMAN, and BatWOMAN because 3 from the big 2 should be enough to satisfy me. I can get the rest from Image, Vertigo, and everywhere else.
I hope the Poison Ivy mini at least has her acting like an adult.
I saw someone who's pretty critical being genuinely enthusiastic about Tieri Catwoman, but I ain't reading it
Jolt is GENRE SAVVY!
those are some serious ionic boobs, goddamn
What a perfect lead-in to the question I had. I couldn't make heads or tails of the wiki entries. What is Rikki Bucky's relation to Winter Soldier? Is she just like his vaguely AU "what if Bucky were a waifu" counterpart?
Also that's a fine set of quads right there.
>those are some serious ionic boobs, goddamn
It's almost like most comic book artists are pathetic, sexually frustrated morons with no talent and less understanding of human anatomy. But no, that would be silly.
Bucky as Winter Soldier originates with Bru, so later than this
So Zemo's out of Citizen V's body, now
I don't think they ever have anything to do with each other
the original Bucky was good and deal for a really long while. Some believe he should have stayed ded, like Jason Todd.
that Jason Todd reddit thread was a zillion lulz
>I think Rikki Barnes is an alternate Bucky's granddaughter?
Yes. In the Heroes Reborn universe, Bucky lived and married Peggy Carter. Rikki is his granddaughter.
It seems like every AU Bucky lives and marries Steve's girlfriend.
You know, in light of the last storytime I don't think Ellis mischaracterized Karla in his thunderbolts.
The tone is darker which makes her seem worse, but overall she's the same.
She doesn't have a strong sense of right and wrong and doesn't care about saving or hurting people. She can enjoy being a hero but doesn't have the moral backbone to WANT to be one.
In the current run she was surrounded by heroic people and it rubbed off on her. In Ellisbolt she was surrounded by terrible people and it made the worst of her.
she doesn't actually have good stories.
That's a supported reading.
But Brian Wood's "I killed my mom" was too much.
>I think Rikki Barnes is an alternate Bucky's granddaughter?
BUT WHICH ONE FFFFFFFUUUU-
This is why I fucking hate DC legacy characters since all the prominent ones just use the famous name so unless you're already familiar enough with them to know their actual name you can't talk about them at all.
>the original Bucky
I-I'm gonna pretend that Rikki is the granddaughter of his AU counterpart even if that's incorrect just so this will stop bugging me.
Reed, not Wood. Generic writer, but not sexual harasser.
Imagine if you could hop to a universe where your cool dead grandpa was still a young dude and you could bro around with him. I know comics would probably inject that with a lot of drama but it feels like a very comfy scenario.
I can't remember if they ever met. I remember one where Rikki wanted to meet BuckyCap, but Natasha found her and talked her out of it because it would freak him out or something.
also if you drink all the time you get fat, which is a bad combo with being an edgelord assassin
I get triggered hard by the Robins all having pretty well defined specialties and individual writers deciding that isn't enough and wanking their particular pet Robin to be better than all the others. And in every direct power level comparison I really just want pages of Cass fucking people up like she's starring in Tokyo Gore Police: Gotham Edition.
I fear Flanderization in comics
Also kind of in this weird D/s relationship at the moment.
IDK God hates big tits seems like a fair deduction. Breasts have gotten larger as human civilization has developed and more and more people have become atheists. The world will not end with fire, frost or flood but will drown under a sea of heaving tits.
Now you have me thinking of that one monster in Gantz that the Osaka Perv had to fuck (and die, accordingly)
I never finished it but I remember that bit as a kind of supreme WTF in a sea of WTF
How about a more cheerful note of how is everyone today?
Fine but I pretty much did just sleep and waste time all day. I'm thinking about signing up for an early morning adult class on Saturdays just to make sure I get up early.
How are you?!
I meant to work in the asparagus patch but it was windy and the call of 'fuck it' was too strong
THIS is when you just shank a motherfucker, people.
>How about a more cheerful note of how is everyone today?
Eh. Not really much to say. Still confused about why the hell Legend of Tomorrow even exists.
.... Do I want to know? Because i have a feeling whatever brain-dead thought came out of your head there is going to give me a headache.
It exists to piss you off, anon. That's the only reason WB is putting money and time into it.
I am storytiming for y'all (and me) instead of reading #3 right now
Yo I get that body policing is a big deal we should all be angry about but I can't really handle the complete lack of humor ITT. It's a dumb anime thing anyway
calm your tits
why is that so funny? because it is.
You can be a nice Jewish girl and still dress up like a biker slut if you have a good reason to.
I have so many books to get through already this year it'll be ages till I start on them, I think. Probably the series will be finished by then.
That said I even went creeping for more fantasy lit today but ended up ordering/wishlisting a bunch of social history books about falconry instead.
hey, does this count as kind of /d/, or just usual bodysharing shenanigans
no not a narcissist, but definitely with psychopathic traits. That's how she seems to be portraied to me. She isn't shown to feel empathy for anyone, save a couple of exceptions. In fact it seems more like Jolt was her conscience during her most heroic period.
>Ellis did the latter.
Actually I'd say that Ellis portrayed her as a narcissist psychopath rather than just a psychopath.
Definitely. And her driving patients to suicide just to see if she could. But I don't know if that was part of her characterization before or was introduced by Ellis.
Anon Moonstone is absolutely a narcissist. How can you say she isn't?
I would say that most of the time Moonstone has denial of remorse and 'her conscience' (indicating narcissism) rather than a complete lack of it (indicating psychopathy). In Ellis' run she did seem to lack all remorse.
She's egotistical and self-serving to a degree where the suffering of others means essentially nothing to her. But she can be reached by empathy if it's penetrating enough which to me is what makes her a narcissistic rather than a psychopath (or narcissist psychopath).
how is Tarr? she gets praise on those fronts.
He really was a pig in his younger self
the 90s were a hangover much of the 2000s had
>HUUUUUR BOOBIES XD!!!!11111
If that's your idea of fun, it's time to grow up. Or kill yourself. Either one's good.
And your comebacks are on par with those a mentally deficient five year old.
To be fair, Heinrich's the Nazi, Helmut's just a Prussian dick
D'awww. They did the right thing. Which means they're about to get fucked.
psychopathy doesn't ome with an absolute absence of empathy except at the most extreme forms. There are degrees of psychopathic traits.
But she doesn't strike me as a narcissist at all. Zemo is a narcissist, Graviton is a narcissist.
But Karla, until Ellis, was never really intersted in showing herself to be better than others, to hurt others to feel better about herself or to be unable to see her own limits and flaws.
But in any case, the most important thing is wether it's pathological or not. Everyone has a few narcissistic and psychopathic traits, along with many other stuff. It's when they influence one's ability to function normally in society that they become a disorder or a pathology.
In Karla's case she's perfectly able to function normally in society and it's only due to circumstances that she's in her situation.
I think I'm describing personality traits, you are describing a personality disorder.
At least I'm not using the logic that people use to be hateful to each other all the time.
>Big tits can cause discomfort, therefor women with big tits are inferior
>Periods are gross, therefore women are vile and unclean
>Men are bigger and stronger than women, so men should be in charge
Can we stop fighting about tits and start fighting about, IDK, Bendis?
Anyone know when Clint picked up his carny background?
it's funny how we've been reading stuff that (somewhat) contemporary. Late Reboot-Threeboot and this.
It's there pretty early I think. Maybe by the time Swordsman shows up in Avengers?
This is some good shit:
every time I've seen DG live, the Commendatore has not been thunderous enough for my taste
hey found a page
his daredevil is all time great
Karla's intensely self-centered and works on a careful calculation of cost/benefit, but being superior to everyone and acknowledged as such is too damn much work. Being comfy is better.
Will you stop accusing me of being a misogynist? I just hate breasts. Breast are gross, they look stupid, and are borderline obsolete in their only real function.
I'm not allowed to dislike certain parts of human anatomy? Well fuck you then. Goddamn.
>Can we stop fighting about tits and start fighting about, IDK, Bendis?
No. Not until shithead up there stops calling me a woman-hater.
that facial hair bros page, and the lazy repeated panels, is worth immolation
First appearance, he was working a carnival that Tony and Pepper were dating at. At Coney Island I think.
He was always a Carny. He was also always a bit of a good hearted screw up.
The old Mimi costume is a hoot, innit
Right, I was kind of wondering when it came up that he'd been a carny for quite a while/as a kid, but that seems to cover it, or at least give the foundation for how it got expanded
This is reminding me how much I miss Dylan Battles.
That rarest of shit--a map with fake countries on it!
Does Melissa just have a secondary power of people disregarding her crazy white and pink hair?
Because, that shit is kind of distinctive, like I can sort of buy it in the occasions where the Bolts are popular enough for a lot of women to start trying to look like her but still..
>Kurt Busiek Percocet, Valium, pizza and lemon-infused club soda. Everything necessary for a quiet Saturday night in.
Oh, bless his heart
things I did not know when I was not careful to separate out a ton of weeny little seedlings: that shit has roots that was SRS BZNS
thanks for reading, owls. I think tomorrow is Citizen V mini time: Electric Boogaloo
Waid/Ringo F4: good comics
>capital of Counter-Earth
Capital of the whole planet?
Okay, fuck not getting mad at bad science. This is BULLSHIT. Doom, you fucking suck at logistics and understanding of scale. Fuck you.
BTW, #75 is where our journey with the Bolts will end for now and we'll hop back and read Threeboot
