The Minstrel, Jade Archer, & Quickie On Jade Archer’s Frustrations (Censored)

I don’t get all the hate for “Arrow”.  I’m not trying to argue with anyone about it, but I don’t get it. On the other hand, “The Flash” gets way too big a pass for doing the same things over and over again, and having ridiculous nonsense science all the time. All the “DCComics” “CW” shows are good, but have flaws. The trailer for the next season of “Arrow” looked pretty cool with him training a bunch of new guys.

With all that’s been shown of “Suicide Squad” I’m still not sure about it. My bet is the movie is going to be “okay” to “good”, but not “great”.

That’s it for this week. Next week starts off with a new “The History Of Comics With Q-boy” where there’s a big search for a man known as “The Virtuoso”, and then Tuesday-Thursday there will be more “Criminal And Crimefighter Conversations”. Hope you enjoy and see ya then!

Criminal And Crimefighter Conversations #66

Special-Man, Q-boy, & Slowku On Slowku VS Special-Man

ccc-66-specialmanqboyslowku

“Goku” VS “Superman”.  The debate over who would win has raged endlessly.  Truthfully I don’t think the question is really answerable.  When you say “Superman” there’s a least 4 different versions to consider

  • “Pre-Crisis” – Given more and more powers over time to compete with rival characters like “Captain Marvel/Shazam”. Able to do stuff like juggle planets. Basically unbeatable
  • “Post-Crisis”/ “Pre-Flashpoint” – The “Superman” most of us would know best from comics as this version of Superman  from 1986 to “DC Comic’s” “Flashpoint” event.  Strangely enough, since “DC Comic’s” “Rebirth” event this is now the current version of “Superman”.  Comics gotta love em’.
  • “New 52” – Version of “Superman” from “Flashpont” to “Rebirth”.  So the “newest” version of “Superman”, but around for the shortest amount of time.  Supposedly dead for now.
  • “TV/Movie Versions” – Tends to be much weaker than other versions.  Generally, requires effort to lift things like planes or space shuttles.

Then with “Goku” there’s issues of what is considered cannon and what isn’t.  Generally, “Dragonball GT” is considered not be cannon because “Dragonball’s ” creator Akira Toriyama had little to do with it.  The most recent series “Dragonball Super” is generally cannon though.

The website “ScrewAttack” did an episode of it’s “Death Battle” series where “Goku” and “Superman” fought which really re-ignited this debate.  Personally, I think “Goku” very under served in the video. You can see the video here http://screwattack.roosterteeth.com/episode/goku-vs-superman-death-battle

This guy “Kakarot88” did an incredibly long and detailed post on how this battle was flawed.  Unfortunately, I don’t think the entire post exists anymore and I can only find a (relatively) small portion which you can check out here http://screwattack.roosterteeth.com/post/51220549 . From what I remember his conclusion was that cannon “Goku” (this was before the recent “Dragonball” movies or “Super”) could not defeat “Superman, but non-cannon “Goku” (as used in the “Death Battle” video) who can become “Super Sayian 4” and use the “Dragon Fist” attack (an attack only used in movies and “GT”) could defeat “Superman”.  To me in the post it was being extremely conservative with “Goku’s” abilities, and as accurate as possible while giving “Superman” every advantage from sources that may or may not be cannon for him.

Also while writing this I discovered “Screw Attack” did a sequel to this battle (which you can check out here http://screwattack.roosterteeth.com/episode/death-battle-season-2-25 ). So I’m going to watch that and continue this…

*elevator music*

Even worse than the first one.

It doesn’t matter that “Superman” wins it’s that “Goku” is underpowered.  Examples are given of “Superman” lifting “infinite weight”, but it’s not mentioned that “Goku’s” punches with the God “Beerus” are felt across the universe (and into other planes of existence).  And this is before “Goku” becomes “Super Saiyan Blue”.

Anyways that’s it for this week.  Next week starts off with a new “History Of Comics With Q-boy” where a man known as “The Illustionist” is enlisted to help after trouble comes to Q-boy Comics.  Then there will be new “Criminal And Crimefighter Conversations” Tuesday-Thursday. Hope you enjoy and see ya then!

Quickie On The Dangers Of Altering Time (Censored)

ccc-61-quickiec

If you watched the last episode of the last of this last season of “The Flash” you saw the he went back and stopped his mom’s murder.  In the comics this lead to the “Flashpoint” event where a very dark alternate timeline is created in “DC Comics”. All this lead directly into the “New 52”.  With all this said, yesterday Grant Gustin (the actor that plays “The Flash” if you didn’t know) tweeted out that the title of the first episode of the next season of “The Flash” will be “Flashpoint”.  So yeah something that was very obvious if you read the comic was proven true.  I’m curious how they’re going to do “Flashpoint” as it seems like almost all the major characters are off limits for TV.

Tomorrow The Minstrel and Pussy Whip discuss the possibility of there being 3 different people who are the villain known as The Mad Jester. Hope you enjoy and see ya then!

The Minstrel On Bad Bio On The Mad Jester/

The Upcoming Movie With Her Character And Some Other Chicks

ccc-50-theminstrel

Wow hard to believe I already posted 50 of these!  The first part of this comic is about the idea dropped in “Rebirth” that the “Joker” is actually 3 people.  I actually read “Rebirth #1” and it was kinda unclear as Batman said something about “he doesn’t know what that means”.  Nice backdoor way to cop out.  Good thing it’s there because its REALLY bad idea!  Like “revealing “Wolverine’s” origin” bad!  The “Joker’s” identity should always remain a mystery because anything you come up with is going to be disappointing.

Let’s talk about “Rebirth#1” for a sec.  (Spoilers)

Here’s the thing, the comic actually tries and it at least seems to be coming at things from the right place, but kinda like with “The Flash” finale I talked about yesterday it tries to “have it’s cake and eat it too”. So Wally West is back, but they want to keep the black Wally West they made up too.  I get that they don’t want to piss anyone off, but now they’re saying this one family has 2 guys named Wally West in it that are BOTH speedsters!  Get the hell outta here! Honestly what DC really should do is just admit that the new 52 was a mistake and take everything back to what it was before.  Instead this comic tries to pass the buck on “Watchmen”.  Yes “Watchmen” took away the “hope” and “legacy” and “love” and “sunshine” and “rainbows” and whatever else is good in the DC Universe.  This is total BS.  And as I said before the “Watchmen” characters should never be used.  (end spoilers)

The second part is about this female-led movie that “Harley Quinn” is suppose to be in after “Suicide Squad”.  Seems WAY too early to be jumping up and down about it, but okay…  That’s it for this week.  See ya next Tuesday-Thursday for more “Criminal And Crimefighter Conversations”! Hope you enjoy and see ya then!

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!
