That's great, now they need to reveal a good plot, and decent writing. Because I don't want to give any secrets away, but Iron Man 2 suuuuuuuuuuuuucked.

No, you're right.

It's not that the hammer is so heavy no one can lift it, it's all in the enchantment.

No Such Agency: Dr. Whoof:
Currently Cap's shield has got a third ingredient - Uru, the same metal Mjolnir is made from.

Oh for fark's sake.  And, why do the Christians never protest the fact that in Marvel Comics, the Norse pantheon* is demonstrably real, whereas Yahweh and Jesus are still only imaginary people that Nightcrawler talks to at night?

* huh huh, you said "áss"

Always wondered how the evangelical right reacted to Silver Dagger (one of Dr. Strange's foes)...

And I always liked how Strange (and/or Agamotto) always handed him his bald ass in one form or another.  Something satisfying about a fanatic being hoisted by his own petard.

Pants_Optional: I preferred the silver/red centurion suit. Probably because it's the one I grew up reading.

Why do I subconsciously think that JJ Abrams was behind the design of that armor?

Orgasmatron138: crab66: I thought the human side of the hulk was one of the worst things about the Avengers.

Huh, i thought it was one of the best things about the movie.  Mark Ruffalo did more in his screen time to establish the character than the two Hulk movies combined.


I'm not a Marvel fanboy, and couldn't give two shiats about any of these guys before the movies, but I thought Ruffalo hit an absolute home-run with his Banner.  Might not be true to comics, but I really loved what he did with the character.  This brilliant man, with all that unwanted, near-uncontrollable power, with no way out even if he tried to kill himself - he made me give a shiat.  Everyone was quite good in this.  It's a fun movie I pull out whenever I want to watch something fun and entertaining.  Captain America was kind of the odd-man out, but that fit his man-from-the-past situation, so it worked too.

Silver centurian is my favorite
But most of my ironman comics feature Rhode in the mark v and the ironman turbo roller skates.

Look it up, its hysterical.
Even when I was 8 I thought it was lame.

I think even the Christians realize that Thor is a better superhero than Jesus. Also the all encompassing 'The Lord works in mysterious ways' explanation.

It was a tribute to the Mark I that he was introduced with back in the day.  Except then it was to escape commie jaundiced Asians, not sunburned Arabs hired by his business partner to kill him.

Yeah, let's have the fanboys dictate what's up in the movies.  That always works so well.

The Asgardians in the comics don't have advanced technology that looks like magic to we primitive screwheads, they have actual magic. They are aliens, as are all the mythological gods, but they come from a magic-based universe instead of another planet within the regular 616. Odin is basically the same as Dormammu, who are both on their way towards power levels like the Vishanti, Cyttorak, etc...

Yeah, I was kindof disappointed in that aspect of the films.  "We better subtly hint that this is all technology and not magic, cause you know if there's anything people don't like it's magic in a movie about Norse gods and their friends with the flying armour, frozen man, and gains-extra-mass-somehow guy."

That line in the Avengers where Thor says, "...in Asgard we like to think of ourselves as more advanced." made me cringe.  Similarly when Loki said, "The human think us immortal.  Should we test that?"

I wonder if this will be addressed in a Dr. Strange movie (if it ever gets made).  Also, the power of the cosmic cube is also pretty magical since it can basically grant any and all of your wishes.

You should probably not read The Mighty Thor.

I do.  Been reading all the Thor stuff since the 80s.  Yes, gods can die, but it takes alot more than being dropped in a hulk-cage.  They also come back.  In Thor comics, Ragnarok is a cycle that repeats over and over again.  For all intents and purposes they are immortal barring extreme circumstances.  (if that's what you're referring to)

An even when 'dead'  they are really sort of 'alive' in Hel or Valhalla.  They just moved around a bit.  And if one is so inclined they can be dragged back out.  Anyway, regardless of that, I just really disliked the turning magic into tech aspect of things.  Seemed like a weird editorial action given everything else in the films.

/I think in the animated EMH they even tried to make Stark able to 'analyze' Asgardian magic as advanced energy or something.

The post Fall of Asgard Mighty Thor comics have both humans and Asgardians referring to their magic as "technology", was my point. They also have a baptist minister take Silver Surfer's place as Herald of Galactus because he wanted to be in the presence of a real God. The Agardians even make special "space suits" to go fight Galactus. Anyways, I'm not as opposed to or offended by the whole technology/magic thing because A) I didn't grow up on Thor and B) It doesn't really take away from the overall impact of their powers/abilities. Sure, magic is more mysterious, but we live in a different world than we did 30 years ago. People don't want excuses, they want a reason. I don't think it really has much to do with someone at Marvel being afraid of incurring Christian wrath, I think they just wanted to make a more cohesive universe, or at least one that was more in tune with the movies. I mean, clearly they can't just eliminate all magic and just call it technology, because where would Heroes/villains like Dr. Strange, Enchantress, Juggarnaught, Scarlet Witch (yes I know she's a mutant, it's still magic to me, dammit) and Iron Fist be? Their powers either consist of or are bestowed by magic.
