And you, sir(us), are forgetting the one point that should ease your concerns.

He's Captain America.

Re: Trailer: VERY SPOILERY FOR END GAME

Well, considering that they managed to ruin Electro in Garfield's second Spider-Man movie, using Mysterio seems a major gamble to me.

Marvel's consistently exceeding expectations, though.

When Bagdad Ruled the Muslim World: The Rise and Fall of Islam's Greatest Dynasty, by Hugh Kennedy

It's about the Abbasid Caliphate. And I don't necessarily agree with his assessment of their relative greatness, frankly.

Re: Avengers: Endgame - Trailer

Well, remember how awestruck Gamora was with Thor in Avengers: Infinity War ? She couldn't help but caress his muscles, much to Quill's consternation. Now that she, an earlier version of herself, doesn't have love for Peter as a restraint, and assuming Thor regains his godly physique (which I imagin...

Re: STAR WARS - EPISODE IX Trailer

Note that this was written for the most part before JaceRidley's last few but posted afterwards. I was actually at the cardiologist. You people will be the death of me. :D If you wish to respond to a post I no longer stand by, it is of course you right to do so. But it will mean very little. I shall...

Asked, "Is Thor Stronger than the Hulk" ...

... I went on a bit of a rant. The issue’s become a joke, now. Writers are regularly powering the Hulk up. The original Gray Hulk. Savage Hulk. Joe Fixit/Neo-Gray Hulk. Professor Hulk. The Maestro. World War Hulk. World Breaker Hulk. Nul. Immortal/Devil Hulk. No doubt there are others I missed. Hone...

Re: STAR WARS - EPISODE IX Trailer

How about we call it a draw and just shut up about all of this? Traditionally, in serious chess, one offers a draw when holding what is believed by both sides to be a slightly advantageous position. If not, it's often considered by your opponent to be at best amusingly ignorant and at worst an insu...

You are presuming a level of skill that permits you the employment of vulgarity to positive effect.

Re: In another forum I was asked ...

While I believe that's a logical reason for her promotion, to keep her from causing any more trouble, I think a more interesting one in terms of Janeway the character is that she went through a pro forma "court-martial" and was given a slap on the wrist. Janeway finally breaks down under the pressu...

Re: STAR WARS - EPISODE IX Trailer

They screwed the pooch and it's not really possible to unf*ck the dog.
The inherent vulgarity of these phrases hurts your credibility, in particular when they're regularly employed.

I suggest you refrain from using them nearly as much in the future.

In another forum I was asked ...

... In Star Trek: Nemesis , why did Kathryn Janeway get promoted to admiral before Picard? My answer: Janeway received a flag rank because Starfleet couldn’t toss a galactic hero into the pokey, despite her innumerable documented crimes in the Delta Quadrant. So they did the next best thing: Promote...

Joe, at no point did I say any of that and you know it. At no point did I say that post was directed at you, and you know it.
