    latest MU 3.75

    Marvel Universe is currently the only line I actively collect and I haven't seen the last two waves at all besides that ugly Jim Lee Wolverine from 1, Vision because I bought him off of ebay and Etremis Iron Man. meanwhile the stores around here are all loaded with MU Iron Man's that aren't moving because he has his own line jam packed right next to the MU's. wack!
  2. Since you're such a huge Thor fan you probably already knew that Chris Hemsworth was cast as Thor in May and you're just jerkin' our chain with this stupid comment. Maybe you can take the $10 you were gonna spend on the Thor movie and buy yourself a "Reading for Dummies" book. I did not know Chris Hemsworth was cast as Thor. I did skim the thread and obviously misinterpreted what was said. I then spoke out of turn and gave my opinion on a topic that I had not accurately read through. I'm obviously the first one to ever do that here, so I apologize. I also want to thank you both for being so welcoming and offering your sharp wit. Yes, my wit IS sharp.... sharp as a whip...or a bowling ball.
  3. further, now that I properly understand the subject, I don't have a problem with a black guy playing Heimdall. minor character...makes so much more sense now

  5. I'm dumbfounded by the amount of people who have referred to Thor as a minor character. he's one of the original Avengers and still among the all-time big three. Thor is awesome and I'm pissed that they got a black guy to play him. you can call me racist, but you'd be wrong. I just really like Thor and I'm not looking forward to drastic, unnessecary and flat out nonsensical changes. give me one good reason why he should be black. Idris is a good actor, sure, but is he SO good that he ruined the role for someone who fit the part better physically? was there just not a single actor available who might fit the description of one of Marvel's oldest and greatest? no, he was cast (if he in fact is really cast and this isn't a rumor that has gotten way out of hand) because he's black and that's baloney. we're comic book fans, we're drawn to visuals, or else we'd just read novels. we need a new Thor.
  6. man, considering someone called this the stupidest "who'd win in a fight ever," it's really carried on. I'm gonna respond to a few different things I've read in thethread. not trusting the accuracy of tales regarding katanas that cut through human bodies (or even phone books is like not trusting tales of an alien robot that transforms into a big rig fighting an 80 year old super soldier. that's just crazy! PEAK human strength is a real life term for having reached the max performance that a human can attain. if 800lbs was the absolute most a human could lift, only someone with peak strength can do it.
  7. I just wanted to add how much I've enjoyed this debate
  8. this is a very interesting point that I've never thought of. however (and I'm not saying you're wrong, just an added thought) one thing that Cap has that Wolverine does not, is velocity. his shield was physically designed for this purpose, it's going to pick up speed on the way to the target, therefore picking up power. Randy Johnson couldn't throw a 20 mph punch, but he can get the ball over the mound at around 100, because that's what the ball was designed for. as for the steak knife through a phone book; no you couldn't, for 3 reasons. 1. it's serated which will slow down your thrust with each knotch. 2. a phonebook is not ONE object, so much as a collection of hundreds of thin objects, again slowing your thrust (slightly of course, but enough to make a difference) try stabbing a standard kitchen knife through a block of the pulp that phonebook paper is cut from and I'll bet you'll see a much different result. 3. unlike Cap's shield, a steak knife was never designed with the intention of stabbing phone books I said Steel knife, not Steak Knife @lol@ I mean ANY kind of blade... you can't do it. or think of this, how much harder a shovel is than dirt... but how far can you drive a shovel down in one push? Not very far. What would happen if Wolverine (who does not have super strength) tried to stab or slice through a Sentinel? Most likely he would get a couple inches deep, and his claws would wedged in the metal. He would not be able to pull them out without a lot of jostling. Somehow, Marvel has given Wolverine the ability to have magical claws. They don't act like metal at all, more like a light saber. They are constantly cutting in all directions, anything they touch, like a laser. When Wolverine sticks his claws into something, they magically displace whatever he is cutting. With Cap's shield/baseball theory, the object being thrown doesn't pick up speed the further it goes. It LOSES speed the further it goes. Randy Johnson could definitely throw a 20mph punch. His arm has to go very fast in order to get the ball up to speed. hahaha, you totally did say steel knife, my mistake. I'm not arguing your Wolverine theory, you've sold me on that one Cap's shield WILL lose speed as it loses velocity, just as Randy Johnson's ball will act in the same manner. however, think about this; what would do more damage, a major league pitcher smashing you in the face with a baseball in his hand at his top speed, or standing on home plate while he slings a 95 mph fast ball from the mound?

  10. his shield is an adamantium/vibranium alloy. I admit my Transformers knowldge pales next to Marvel, but I think Optimus is just standard steel like any other big rig. again, I could be wrong.
  11. my vote goes for Cap. they're basically the same character, Optimus is just bigger....but not bigger than Cap has faced before. he's got speed and agility on his side. I'm def open to other opinions though.
  12. is he available in anything besides that Pyramid of Darkness boxed set? I've found a loose one on ebay, but I always cosider that a last resort. anybody have a spare they'd like to sell/trade?
  13. I think it'd be awesome, I'd buy 'em! granted, everyone is right, we'll likely never see these and understandably, but there's nothing wrong with dreaming. cool idea.
  14. I think if you bought a copy you'd be sending the exact opposite message that you were intending. I disliked Halle so much as Storm that I automatically dislike her in any other role since.
