Fanfic makes it easy to write something you would much rather prefer to see on screen, but the thing with fan fiction is that it can be really well written and really do new things for and with characters, but all the heavy lifting has already been done, by the original authors. If it wasn't, of course, it would be… » 3/27/15 3:53am Today 3:53am

He's still not a homicidal maniac, but they made sure to leave room for character progression (why would it be fun if everybody shows up fully formed within the first issue, after all) ... but the final confrontation between Cold and Flash tonight really gets things ship shape. I'm really looking forward to more of… » 3/25/15 12:58am Wednesday 12:58am

I rewatched the first season with an uninitiated friend, and she found the first two thirds just as excruciating as I did. In fact, the word she used was "excruciating".

And didn't they leave him (The… » 3/15/15 5:35pm 3/15/15 5:35pm

He *is* also a genius. If he wasn't a genius, everybody and their Aunt May would be whipping up web fluid and webshooters; instead, he's the first (and usually the only) super-person in the world to actually *make* mechanical web shooters, rather than praying for organic ones. » 3/15/15 8:54am 3/15/15 8:54am

This comment reads a LOT like somebody looking down on a person because they got into something cool because of somebody else's influence. Sort of like the hipster cliche of mocking somebody else by saying "oh yeah, I liked that band before they were cool." It isn't doing anybody any good, because the whole point of… » 3/10/15 11:10pm 3/10/15 11:10pm
