Merrick, Male, child of the 80s, this blog is for comics, movies, and whatever nonsense I feel like posting about.
I legitimately do not mind the idea of Terry being Bruce's son, especially considering this is from the same people who created the damn kid
The thing is, IMO, it adds nothing to the character and in fact it takes away from him.
What was great about Terry is he was a normal kid, a normal person who didn’t have all the advantages Bruce did, but became a great Batman on his own.
Then you make him Bruces kid and it ups the level of coincidental happenings to absurd levels and it adds in pangs of genetic predestination that I pretty much always hate.
Then they also pretty much ignored Terry’s character growth, they have him doing this whole “will I be like Bruce” thing when at least by the end of RotJ it had done a very good job setting Terry up as accepting he’s not like Bruce…and that’s what makes him able to do things Bruce never could, like breaking Joker.
Convoluted coincidences + conspiracy arc + removal of character growth to fit a story + hints of genetic predestination = something tailor made for me to hate it with a burning passion.
All of those are things I dislike, one I can stomach, two has me rolling my eyes, tossing all of them together in 30 minutes as what was meant to be the ending of a universe that had done a great job avoiding most of them? “Anti-Life Justifies My Hate”
I despised the episode from the moment it aired, and will forever be happy it got another season so the series didn’t end on that incredibly low note.
Honestly out of all the media I’ve watched I can only really think of three things I ever truly HATED.
I mean I’ve had lots that I came out “meh” on, or that I really didn’t like, but the level of distaste necessary for the word HATE, I can only think of three (Note: this is barring things that include purposefully hateful messages, like Birth of a Nation)
Those three things are
Reign In Darkness.
No Country for Old Men
and the Epilogue episode of JLU.
If those three things had faces, I would punch them.
SF Debris - JLU: Epilogue
Also, it turns out that he’s covering Mask of the Phantasm later this year, yay!
I admit I’m not even watching this video, I just have to comment how much I hate this gorram episode.
I’m so glad DCU got one more year after this so it could end on an actually good ending and not … this.

Terry Crews Says He’s “Game” to Lead Marvel’s LUKE CAGE Series | Collider
Terry Crews Says He’s “Game” to Lead Marvel’s LUKE CAGE Series; Netflix and Marvel are producing Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist.
I just really can’t see Crews as Luke Cage.
Maybe it’s just because I so want Michael Jai White to be Luke Cage.
I mean hell, MJW can even pull off “blaxploitation” Luke if he needs to, just watch Black Dynamite.

Female Armor BINGO (downloadable PDF) by OzzieScribbler (yours truly)
As a special present for Bikini Armor Battle Damage first anniversary, I present to you: Female Armor BINGO!
Feel free to use as a reference to quantify how ridiculous any female armor is.
edit: Updated the link into downloadable PDF!
Breakdown of all the squares under the cut.
My pedantic nature wishes to point out that no pants/trousers is actually accurate to many historical armors.
But them being absent on female armors when the male armors have them is still a common enough problem I see the reason for it being in the bingo card.

I’m having nightmares and I’m wide awake
but.. but.. everyone is beautiful.. right? RIGHT?
Everyone has the right to do whatever they want with their own body.
That is true.
I however reserve the right to have this be my reaction to what you’ve done with your body.
