Criminal And Crimefighter Conversations #152 – The Minstrel, Ms. Majors,
Luscisous Trapp, Slowku, & Mr. Mystic On The Verdict For Mr. Mystic
Do you remember the first time you saw “Goku” turn “Super Saiyan” the first time. Most of us Americans knew it was going to happen and even what it looked like, but we didn’t know how it happened until we saw it. It took extreme gravity training, nearly dying, fighting against a (at the time) basically unbeatable opponent, and the stress of seeing his best friend killed. For ‘Vegeta” to do it he had to push himself to near madness. Basically it took extreme training and extreme stress.
Jump ahead and Goku reveals he could become “Super Saiyan 3” except he really can’t handle it. I think it’s suggested that the planet can’t even handle it which is something I think everyone seems to forget. Then younger characters (and one’s that are barely “Saiyan”) could just do it (except “Pan” of course because… reasons).
Jump to “Dragon Ball Super” where Goku becomes “Super Saiyan God”. Which is just given to him… It’s kinda un-“Dragonball” to do that. Later “Vegeta” “does it on his own”, but that doesn’t make any sense. And they both become “Super Saiyan Blue”. I know there’s a “Super Saiyan Rose” as well but I don’t know if either of them achieved it yet. My point to all this is that these new transformations seem too easy and too fast. Again I like “Dragon Ball Super” but at this rate they’re going to run out of color pretty fast.
That’s it for this week. Check out new “Criminal And Crimefighter Conversations” Tuesdays-Thurdays. Hope you enjoy and see ya then!
Criminal And Crimefighter Conversations #151 – The Minstrel, Ms. Majors,
Luscisous Trapp, Slowku, Mr. Mystic, & Headmaster Fresh On A Secret Convo
In case you’re lost or didn’t read yesterday’s comic this is a telepathic conversation that was going on during the conversation from yesterday’s comic between Mr. Mystic and Headmaster Fresh and unexpectedly Slowku gets involved. That just made you more confused didn’t it?
Speaking of Slowku let’s get back to “Dragon Ball Super”. One thing I kinda like about it is that it has shorter arcs. I don’t break down “Dragon Ball Z” into mini-arcs like most people. To me “DBZ” is The “Saiyan” or “Vegeta” Saga, the “Freeza” Saga, the “Cell” saga, and the “Buu” saga. This plus some filler covers nearly 300 episodes. At around 60 episodes “Dragonball Super” has had the same number of sagas plus filler. Another good thing is at least in the “Ressurection Of F” arc characters that aren’t “Goku” or “Vegeta” got to do something.
Then there’s the problems… Like “Pilaf”…. He’s never been funny or a good character. He’s a relic of time when “Dragon Ball” wasn’t popular. And yet he keeps returning… Over and over again to waste time that could go to fighting or something interesting. Along with him is “Shu” and “Mai”. “Mai” is a whole thing by herself because of all this weird stuff with her and “Trunks”. To be clear this is woman that is older and his mother in a child’s body. Then time travel gets involved and it gets weird for the opposite reason. All this should really just stop.
Tomorrow a decision is made about Mr. Mystic’s position in The Revenge Squad. Hope you enjoy and see ya then!
Criminal And Crimefighter Conversations #150 – The Minstrel, Ms. Majors, Luscisous Trapp,
Slowku, & Mr. Mystic On If Mr. Mystic Should Be Part Of The Revenge Squad
Last week I said something about “DC Comics” having better comics right now than “Marvel”… After catching on some comics this weekend I have to amend that. I’m not saying “DC” isn’t winning necessarily but it’s WAY closer than I thought. I caught up on “Infamous Iron Man” (where “Dr. Doom” takes “Iron Man’s” place and tries to be good) and that’s a damn good comic. Is worth going through “Secret Wars” and “Civil War II” to get here? Probably not, but still…
Also “Dragon Ball Super” premiered last Saturday here in the US. I’d been following it through fan-subtitled versions. I’m not an anime purist. I prefer dubs over subs mainly because I more “listen” than watch anything. “Dragon Ball” is one of the few things I’ll watch subbed when the dub isn’t available. In fact this whole thing brings me back to when I would watch “Dragonball Z” on the “International Channel”. No “subtitles”, faded colors, but completely unedited and it was a few episodes ahead of the American version.
Back to “Super”, I think I was up to like the 56th episode or something. Honestly it’s… Okay. It’s WAY better than “Dragon Ball GT” though. The whole things is kinda similar to what is going on with “Star Wars”. Sure there’s part of me that just wants more, but there’s the part of me that says “let it go”. It’s a weird pre-sequel that pretty much contradicts the actual ending of “Dragon Ball Z”. Then there’s the fact that nearly 30 episodes are just the last 2 “Dragon Ball” movies (“Battle Of The Gods” & “Ressurection Of F”) with lots of filler. The first episode in particular is nothing but pointless filler… But it’s “Dragon Ball”. They can endlessly repackage, and remix it and I’ll probably be there.
Tomorrow we see a secret conversation that happened during this conversation. Hope you enjoy and see ya then!
Criminal And Crimefigher Conversations #149 – Freedom Female, Ms. Majors,
Luscisous Trapp, Spiderous-Man, & Mr, Mystic On Incompetence And Jealousy
This one actually tied into the Holiday Special comic from Monday. Yep it’s in continunity…
Anyways “Civil War II” finally ended last week and… Wow…. What a waste of time and good art… The worst thing about “Marvel’s” crossovers is that they never really end they just shift into whatever the “new status quo” is. This “new status quo” is especially bad. “The Hulk” is dead, “She Hulk” is more like “The Hulk” which is stupid and defeats the purpose of her character. “Iron Man” is off the table, and that scene was just painfully forced. “Cap” is STILL a “Hydra” agent (I thought they ended that after like 2 issues). Oh and the “Inhuman” kid who could predict the future is now some cosmic entitiy or something because “Inhumans” are IMPORTANT and always involved in everything. We get it “Marvel”. We get it!
“Marvel” may DESTROY “DC” when comes to movies and beat them by a lot at TV with the “Netflix” shows, but I gotta say I think “DC” might be winning with actual comics. To be clear this is pretty much only because one of the “Justice League” books is okay and “All Star Batman” is great.
That’s it’s for this week. Check out new “Criminal And Crimefighter Conversations” Tuesdays-Thursdays. Hope you enjoy and see ya then!
