I know I said “that’s it for this week”, but I had the idea for this one and wanted to share it.  So here’s a special Friday edition of Criminal And Crimefighter Conversations. So here’s the two main things I wanted to get at with this one

  1. (If you don’t know or care about “Dragonball” you might wanna skip this) Goku being a crappy parent

People try to argue that Goku isn’t a crappy parent, but here’s the thing…. He abandons his family at every possible opportunity. See Goku never wanted to marry Chi Chi.  He agreed to when he was a kid and didn’t know what it was and then sorta went along with it later.  You never see Goku be like “I miss Chi Chi” or “man I can’t wait to bang Chi Chi” in the entire show.  Can’t really blame him cuz’ Chi Chi is a total nag.

Goku dies fighting Raditz and can contact anyone on Earth through King Kai. Does he ever contact Chi Chi? Nope! Goku escapes Namek’s explosion. Does he get back to his family as soon as possible or even let them wish him back to Earth? Nope! He learns Instant Transmission and teaches no one so he can always get away and no one can find him.

During the Cell Saga Goku actually spends time with Gohan training and then just chilling out for a while…. Which is strange because he could have actually kept training absolutely ensure he’d be able to beat Cell.  Instead he THINKS Gohan MIGHT be strong enough and puts the pressure of saving the world on his 11 year old son.  He EVEN gives Cell a sensu bean! …. Things don’t work out and Goku sacrifices himself by teleporting himself and Cell away when Cell tries to self-destruct.  Seems noble. Except Goku has plenty of time to get away.  He doesn’t.  He get’s killed again on purpose to get away from him family.

Think that’s crazy? After this Goku doesn’t contact his family at all for 7 years! Again he can contact anyone at any time with King Kai but chooses not to.  We know this because next thing we know Goku has another son that’s 7 years old that he doesn’t even know about.  As a side some people use one of the Dragonball movies as an example of how Goku is a good dad.  In the movie he teleports from heaven to help Gohan in a fight.  Usually movies are not considered cannon but this actually works against their argument.  This means Goku could teleport from the afterlife anytime and again chooses not to.

Then we get to the Buu saga where Goku withhold the fact he can turn Super Saiyan 3 and probably beat Buu early on because “the kids should beat him”. Then once again when that doesn’t work out and pretty much everyone is kills and the Earth is about to be destroyed Goku saves a relative stranger and his dog over his own kids.

Then we get to the end of Dragonball Z where first Goku once again is wants to blow off a gathering with friends and family so he can watch some dinosaur eggs or something.  Then at the very end he flies off to train with Uub and if you count GT he once again doesn’t contact his family for like 10 years.  Only seen less than 20 episodes of Super but yes he abandons his family to train in that too.  Goku is a crappy parent. There are many reasons I believe why he is that way, but I’ll get into that another day…

2. (If you don’t know or care about “Buffy The Vampire Slayer” you might wanna skip this) Buffy “dieing”

Technical dieing isn’t dieing. So Buffy drowns in Season 1 and from this we get a 2nd Slayer Kendra and then Faith when Kendra is killed.  All of this makes Buffy’s power make no sense.  If Buffy “died” then she should have either no power when she was revived; half power because she’s sharing it with another Slayer; or their should be no 2nd Slayer.

If Buffy died the 2nd time in “The Gift” then shouldn’t there be a 3rd Slayer? Speaking of “The Gift” most people see her jumping into the portal as this noble gesture, but I see it as just saying “eff it”.  Buffy risked the world by not killing this nonexistent person in the form of her sister, Dawn. Also irresponsibly leaving the world with no Slayer as Faith is crazy and was in jail at the point.

Okay and THAT is it for this week. Seriously this time. See ya next week and hope you enjoy!

It pretty annoying when Marvel and DC kill off characters for cheap shock value, but it’s even worse when they cop out and the character didn’t even actually die.  Captain America and Batman both had “deaths” where they actually just when back in time.  What’s great is that some people always fall for this and this stuff actually gets news coverage.

So “Civil War” is next week and it looks like it’s gonna be awesome!  Don’t really got anymore to add so that wraps up this week.  See ya next Tuesday-Thursday for more Criminal And Crimefighter Conversations.  Hope you enjoy!

This one has some references to “Crisis Of Infinite Earth” the big event of DC Comics that ended its multi-verse and was the first of many attempts to streamline its comics.  Ever sense it seems DC is always trying to streamline its universe and always making some big crossover to bring back the multi-verse.   The logic being the if you start over with a clean slate its easier for new readers to jump into comic.  The fatal flaw in that logic is that in the process all the older stories have the complicated explanation of not “counting” because they are “pre(insertbigcrossover)”.  Along with that characters people liked are erased, changed for the worse, and replaced by other characters.  This is why I’ve always preferred Marvel’s approach which is more like “well that happened but slightly differently”.

I generally don’t buy the whole “all the continuity scares new readers off” argument.  If people can follow “Game Of Throne”, “Buffy”, or “Love And HipHop” they can follow most comics.  Especially in this day and age with Wikipedia and Google. You don’t need to know a character’s entire history to read a comic. Hell the writers probably don’t know it.

Tomorrow Q-boy talks with America-Man and the Good Knight some more about famous people dieing and also time travel. See ya then and hope you enjoy!

So did ya’ll catch the new “X-men: Apocalyspe” trailer yesterday? So far it’s looking pretty good.  We might finally have a truly great X-men.  Honestly I was pretty disappointed with “Days Of Future Past”.  It’s not a bad movie but it’s kind of an “ugly shot that barely makes it in the basket” when it so easily should have been a “slam dunk”. Say what want about “X-men 3” (which gets way too much hate imo) but at least there’s a “fastball special” and “Wolverine” slices up a Sentinel. Both of which somehow don’t happen in “Days Of Future Past”.

Oh yeah I hear Beyonce dropped a little thing called “Lemonade”.  Wow that was nuts! I dunno I didn’t get most of it and didn’t like most of the songs… Anyways that was one crazy hour of TV…

If I don’t change my plans because something happens in comics that I want to cover this week tomorrow we’ll see Special-Girl, Q-boy, and Quickie talking about famous people dieing and reincarnation.  Hope you enjoy and see ya then!
