    [Comics] History of the Marvel Universe

    So, weird consequences of the Sin Cong retcon: Karma, from the New Mutants, is introduced as a Vietnamese refugee who had to flee after the war's end because of her family's ties to the South Vietnamese government. As this no longer makes sense in the current timescale... does that mean she's...

    [WIR] X-Men II: Focussed Totality Is A Song Within Her When Ah'm Blastin'!

    There's a bunch of New Mutants stories where villains just get dumped into Limbo and nobody really raises an eyebrow, despite it, you know, being a demonic hell-world. It's... weird. You'd think it'd be part of a story about Illyana being corrupted by power and growing crueler and less merciful...

    [Comics] History of the Marvel Universe

    So, in addition to all the real-world tragedies and conflicts that have been mentioned, in the Marvel Universe, the US has also been involved in a Vietnam-scale conflict for several decades? Man, the Marvel Universe is a crappy place to live.

    You think she'd at least know of Persephone and the pomegranate...

    [Comics] House of X - the big X-Men relaunch

    Something I just spotted – in HoX #2, Moira mentions that she stood by Xavier 'through the lost decade' in life 4. In one of the historical summaries in PoX #1, there's mention of the 'lost years' of mutant leadership in the timeline that leads to the Nimrod-dominated future. Now it could just...

    The Last of The GoT Hot takes: Lindsay Ellis video part 2

    We can only hope somebody's around to murder Jon too if his evil genes make him go super-killy...

    Crusader Kings 2 II: Title Revoked

    Note that there is an options menu when you start a new game that lets you turn things like the Sunset Invasion on or off for that game, so you don't need to manually disable the DLC if you don't want to deal with it.

    The Last of The GoT Hot takes: Lindsay Ellis video part 2

    I strongly suspect the desire to have Tyrion as a flawless hero is a big factor in the ending not making a great deal of sense - Tyrion in the books looks like he's heading down a much darker path, and I'm willing to bet that if the books were ever finished, Mad Queen Danny would be partially...

    [TV/Movie] [Star Trek] CBS + Viacom = ViacomCBS! Split-personality transporter accident reversed!

    Oh man, now the crackpots are going to have to come up with a new conspiracy theory to explain why Discovery's effects don't exactly match a show from half a century ago... :P

    [WIR] X-Men II: Focussed Totality Is A Song Within Her When Ah'm Blastin'!

    You know, it hadn't occurred to me just how many superheroes and villians have some sort of tie to Cairo in the Marvel universe. Sure, some of it's understandable – Ancient Egypt makes for neat comic-book visuals – but even characters with no Kemetic themes like Storm or the Shadow King show up...

    Crusader Kings 2 II: Title Revoked

    Finally got the SPQR achievement, and picked up the Hellenic achievement in the process - not too hard once you get the ball rolling and work out how to game Byzantine succession. It was annoying at the end tracking down the last few independent holdings and holy orders within my borders that...

    [Comics] House of X - the big X-Men relaunch

    The other question is what happened in life nine that led her to change tactics - she'd been adopting increasingly extreme tactics, but something led her to switch from aiding Apocalypse to giving Xavier another go...

    [Superhero Media] The most terrifying and/or horrible Superman expy in media.

    The best part of the gag is a few issues later, where it's revealed that the planet was fine after all - the Jor-El expy really was just a nut.

    [Supers] Seeking Superman-esque character name

    Mr. Supreme. The Solar Man. The Seraphim. The Modern Marvel. Humanity's Champion.

    [Comics] House of X - the big X-Men relaunch

    The bit about mutants developing their own language, the separatist homeland, and, of course, so much of the story being set in Jerusalem, makes it feel like this is going to be a sort of riff on Zionism, which could be either fascinating or a total disaster depending on where the story goes...
