    today's writers don't give a rats ass about not only characterization/ storytelling, but also Avengers history/ tradition.

    They do. Stories like Ultron Forever, Avengers No Surrender and Avengers No Road Home are very good and earnest examples of the celebration of the Avengers' history and mythos.

    The problem the Avengers face today is one specific writer whose name is Jason Aaron.

    So Daredevil believed he was "unworthy" of being Daredevil and his Ex took the mantle to protect Hells Kitchen in his absence in the meantime he look for himself? Wow, u r right, it doesnt sound like Thor at all, my bad!

    Gnite!

    When you put it like that-- you are most certainly wrong.

    Because Matt doesn't feel unworthy of being Daredevil. He's still very much Daredevil and is even serving his sentence as Daredevil because of superhero law shenanigans. Matt was also willing to become a fugitive since he felt being Daredevil and being there to protect Hell's Kitchen was more important than serving his sentence even if he was guilty. Whereas Jane took the Thor mantle because "there must always be a Thor," Elektra is doing it as a gesture of good faith to show Matt that she is more than an assassin, so she can then get Matt's help later on. So Matt only turned himself in because Elektra would take his place.

    Matt also approves of Elektra keeping Hell's Kitchen safe. If I'm not mistaken, for most of Jane's tenure as Thor, Odinson was against her running around using his name and hammer. Also, unlike Aaron's run, Matt is very much still the protagonist of his book since his story in jail is still followed. Whereas if I'm not mistaken, Thor went missing for a long portion of Jane's tenure, and he was pretty much phased out of the book. On the other hand, this book focuses on Matt as much as it focues on Elektra.

    So yeah, your bad. I mean, unless you want to give it another shot at twisting the synopsis of a story tht you most definitely haven't read.

    Did you read Aaron's Thor just like 3 years ago or so?

    Of course. How could I forget that in Aaron's run, Thor turned himself in after commiting manslaughter and when Jane Foster sought his help to thraw The Hand, Thor told her off, so she decided to become the new Thor to get his his good graces by keeping Hell's Kitchen safe in his absence?

    I can't believe this Daredevil run is completely and absolutely ripping it off to a T. It's an exact copy and the one similarity isn't just superficial.

    And the shield is in the wrong arm.. now they just aren’t paying attention.

    The figure only comes with one set of hands, so the only way she could hang on the Hydra Stomper is to have the shield in the wrong arm. That being said... that could also indicate that the figure should have come with an extra set of hands.

    No need to repeat yourself, we get it; you're still caught up in this tangent about the movie that now has nothing to do with the toys.  Because you can't possibly believe people didn't like the movie as much as you did.  Roger that.  

    I initially didn't want to chime in, but I'm genuinely both amused and confused here.

    Is your argument that the movie wasn't well-received or that it wasn't popular? Because you start claiming that the movie wasn't as popular but then you "disprove" that box office earnings don't mean a movie is good, despite the fact that whether the movie is good or not doesn't really factor in disputing its popularity. A movie can still be popular even if it was bad, as you reflected with your examples. A film's box office earnings very much reflect their popularity. If a movie is popular, it gets watched. And Far From Home was the first Spider-Man movie to pass the 1 billion mark at the box office (x), and it was Sony's highest-grossing movie ever (x).

    And moving into the film's critical and audience reception, Far From Home holds in Rotten Tomatoes 90% critic score and 95% audience score (x). In Metacritic it holds 69% critic score and 7.5/10 user score (x). In IMDb it holds 7.5/10. In CinemaScore, it has an A grade. In addition to that, it won or was nominated to several choice awards.

    And somehow... thinking this movie did well is in the minority?

  6. I'm always happy for more Iron Man comics (as long as they're not written by Cantwell) and I've heard good stuff about Landy's previous Marvel work so I'm hopeful. I also like it when Marvel remembers that the whole point of the Iron Man / Captain America rivalry is that they're supposed to be really close friends first and foremost so you know it's serious when they butt heads, so I'm hoping this book portrays their friendship properly.

  7. The Fantastic Four look pretty good for the most part, but I'm not a fan of Sue's face. I feel like it's unfortunate Reed is coming with the salad fingers again instead of the bendable arms. That labcoat looks like it would be a good fit for an Ant-Man figure. I wonder how difficult would it be to retrofit them into one. I'm impressed that Psycho-Man got that much new tooling. As for High Evolutionary, I can already picture a Chemistro being made with those arms and legs.

    This kind of care for this wave makes me hopeful for the eventual Iron Man retro wave.

    Tony's head does look bigger, but go back and look closely at the movie. The nanotech armor was a lot more form-fitting than other armors. He's basically wearing the skinny jeans of armor. 

    The nanotech armors were more form fitting, but it was still an armor, so Tony's head still looked relatively small when unhelmeted. You can also see that MAFEX kept the proportions from the movie in their own version of the MK 85:

  9. I wonder if the Tony Stark unmasked head will look better in the Nick Fury suited body, since that one is bigger than the Coulson one.

    I really wish Hasbro made more releases of that body. Right now it's only been used for Nick Fury, Miami Vice Deadpool and Obadiah Stane. And it would really be an investment to buy a second Iron Monger 2-pack just for the Obadiah Stane even if I got to resell the big guy. I was hoping the upcoming MCU J. Jonah Jameson would be a variant of it, but I checked and I think it's the Coulson body yet again. Really hoping I'm wrong so I can place the second Tony head on a suited body without ending up with a bobblehead.
