Cosplay: because average looking chicks crave attention, too, and if you dress like a comic book character fat geeky guys will supply the attention you crave.

Actually I like the 'Evolution-verse' costume for Scarlet Witch a little better.
And I like the idea of having the characters being young (mid to late teens) and just really coming into their powers.

IIRC, it's more about the "mutant" sub-verse that Fox has the rights to than anything.  If Marvel labels them "mutants" then there would be trouble with Fox.  If Marvel labels them as "metahumans" or simply doesn't then they're ok.

FOX owns 'mutants'.

Marvel can use SW and QS so long as the word 'mutant' is not used and there is no indication of Magneto's parenthood.  There is a special case written for these two due to their 'crossoverness' with the Avengers history.  As a corollary, none of the new Marvel productions can ever use anything related to 'mutants' in general.

Sam Raimi was bummed that Daredevil used Kingpin because he wanted to use him in a Spidey movie, there was the same problem with The Skrulls tied into FF's rights from being the aliens in Avengers. Nevermind that stupid retcon they went with in his own movie...if Wolveriene never ages, he isn't a mutant....hell, technically he isn't even Canadian

The world of Marvel character film rights is a confusing place indeed. In the past year or so though, Marvel got the rights to Daredevil, Blade, and Punisher back. Which makes me crave a Daredevil/Punisher movie.

The biggest rights Marvel is still missing are X-Men (with Fox), Fantastic Four (Fox), and Spider-Man (Sony). Don't think any of those will be reverting any time soon, given movies for all of them are in some level of production right now.

I've felt they should have a second tier of direct to video or tv shows that focuses on the street-level heros.  The cost would be much less than all the special effects used in the AAA titles.  I would completely watch a Marvel 'underverse' with anthologized Punisher/Dare Devil/Blade/and occasional Ghost Rider...

/here's hoping some of this happens in the new tv show.

Ya. Word was that FOX was close to done with a fairly nice script for rebooted Dare Devil, but wouldn't have it in production in time before the rights reverted. Disney offered them an extension in exchange for SS and Galactus, so at least the Surfer would be in  Avengers 2 and/or GoG. FOX decided to keep those for the eventual reboot of FF.

Oh that's rich!  If "Avengers 2" hits all the right notes, Fox better be prepared for the sh*tstorm if "Fantastic Four" is anything less than great.

Unless Disney paid a king's random and a portion of the box office revenues, I doubt Fox would give them up at all.

Avengers I'd rather see in the movie that Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver: Black Panther, Wasp, Vision, Ms. Marvel, She-Hulk, the Scott Lang Ant-Man (we can skip Mr. Domestic Violence).

Of course, I'd really want to see the characters they don't have rights to (Spider-man, Wolverine, Fantastic Four cross-overs, etc.)

All New X-Men (the original teen X-Men brought to modern day)
Wolverine and the X-Men
Superior Spider-Man, if you know the backstory on the current storyline

and if they ever actually get it launched, X-Men (adjectiveless...it's an all female cast)

I'm still holding out for a "Heroes for Hire" tv series.  Iron Fist AND Luke Cage?  Super-strength and martial arts super powers are easy to film.

I'd rather have that and what's being done in "Captain Marvel" over anything Liefeld puts out.  Crap is hideous.

BafflerMeal: I've felt they should have a second tier of direct to video or tv shows that focuses on the street-level heros.  The cost would be much less than all the special effects used in the AAA titles.  I would completely watch a Marvel 'underverse' with anthologized Punisher/Dare Devil/Blade/and occasional Ghost Rider.../here's hoping some of this happens in the new tv show.


The thing that has surprised me is that something like this hasn't been done because you could deliberately make episodes in the tv series that basically work as adverts/links to a movie - basically when the movie is complete and ready for release in a few weeks, you feed in a tv episode or two where the major characters join the plots of the tv series with the more minor heroes that generally feature in it, they kick ass for those couple of episodes, and hey look there is a movie out this weekend with that hero...

Rwa2play: Slaves2Darkness: Well that and being a cheap Flash knock off.

At this rate, (if and when the JL movie comes out) people will complain about how The Flash is a knock-off of Pietro.


I've heard rumors of a Flash solo movie for awhile now. Problem is, the Flash doesn't really have the rich history of memorable stories a lot of the other DC core characters have.

I think it could work adapting "Born to Run" as the first movie/origin, seguing into the "Rebirth" storyline for movie two. People might be confused having two Flashes, but whatever. Both of those stories capture the essence of Flash.

Love to see Flashpoint also, but I'm not quite sure how that would work.

/and as a bonus, if "Born to Run" works well it could be a great way to move towards a Teen Titans movie, which would be freakin' awesome and vastly superior to any JL movie in the works.

The Hank Pym story.
Ant Man to Giant Man to Hercules to Yellowjacket
He created Ultron, TWICE
His wife had to deal with his mental state
He had numerous nervous breakdowns.

This would make for an excellent set of movies. The Scarlet Witch? Really? Did they totally gloss over the cannon and just look for more T&A?

Well, actually, I take that back... the "scratchy" stuff has its place... books like Alias, Manhunter (both of which were drawn at some point by Michael Gaydos)... those are stories that work well with the kind of atmosphere that comes along with the scratchy, muddy colored art.

But Hawkeye and Spider-Man? Those characters deserve big, bright, splashy, comic book art.

FirstNationalBastard: Cosplay: because average looking chicks crave attention, too, and if you dress like a comic book character fat geeky guys will supply the attention you crave.


More like "Cosplay: because we need our own word for dicking around in costumes and if we said 'masquerade' we might be mistaken for adults with no related neurotic insecurities."

The costume party is a human tradition that's shown up in every culture in history.  So is the random large-scale festival.  Calling it 'cosplay' at 'conventions' is just more of the stupid generational delusional bullshiat that our generation is the one that discovered dancing, music, drugs, and sex, and that no prior generation ever had any of those things.

Masquerade carries connotations of a formal affair, so that's really not quite the right word. I suppose that we could go with the less formal "costume party", but that has connotations of a small, private affair.

I don't think that there's anything "delusional" about calling it cosplay. I'm sure that you don't literally think that anyone really believes that dressing up in a costume is some new invention (and if you do, the problem is that your own sense of smugness is causing you to assume that everyone else around you is a moron -- and you really ought to stop doing that because it makes you an ass).

I think that cosplay is a perfectly fine portmanteux that captures the idea of a large, informal event where people dress up in costumes.

The reason that the English language tends to have dozens of synonyms for words is that it's very useful for conveying nuance. This is just another example of that and, much like the idea of costumes, isn't anything new or unique to this generation, nor is it anything to be deplored. It's just how language works.

OK, they're including Scarlet Witch and her whiny Flash ripoff brother. Good. They've already said (though I don't know if it's been 'officially' confirmed) that they're also including the Vision - AKA the Best Avenger.

This BETTER goddamn mean that they are including Ultron - who, along with Thanos, is one of my all-time favorite Marvel villains.

Okay, some clarifications...

The original Human Torch was an android named Jim Hammond. He was active during WWII and then was deactivated until a couple decades later.  Jim Hammond was the man that killed Hitler. With his bare hands. It's implied he didn't use powers, either.

 He had a partner with the same powers-- Thomas Raymond, a kid sidekick called Toro, who wasn't an android, but a mutant (one of the first prominent ones in Marvel's mainstream history).

Now, here's the real tricky area: It was believed that his body was used by Ultron as the basis for The Vision... But that's not entirely true. In actuality, the Human Torch remains used by Ultron were those of a copy of Jim Hammond created by Immortus (a time traveling villain). The Vision also has brain patterns borrowed from a few different people. Hank Pym recently said that the work Ultron did to create the Vision exceeded anything anyone on Earth understands about cybernetic life. Even Reed Richards didn't know how The Vision worked.

The real Jim Hammond was revived by the Scarlet Witch in an effort to learn more about her then-husband, The Vision (long story, there).  The last time we saw Jim Hammond, he was sacrificing himself to save others.

Now, in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, they DID have Jim Hammond on display in the beginning of the film at the expo Steve and Bucky were at with their dates. And since Captain America branched out to fight Hydra when they became the bigger threat, we might even be able to assume that Hammond (and maybe even other Invaders members) were still in active duty fighting Hitler at the same time.

It could be that in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Jim Hammond was still the guy who killed Hitler, and that he will become the Vision. All we need to fill in the gap between the two is Ultron, and to get Ultron we really should have Hank Pym.

One thing about Hank and Ultron, though: Hank tried to explain that he didn't create Ultron-- Not the one the Avengers fought, anyway. His Ultron was just a great robot with a decent AI. It was Ultron himself who improved his systems, boosted his own intelligence, and rebuilt himself over and over again until he was far advanced from anything Hank could have created. Hank's point: Ultron really created himself.

Quicksilver is a gay nerd with no muscle tone? What's his secret power? COBOL programming?


Anyone who willingly programs in COBOL should be classed a superhero. That or slightly deranged. My guess, is it tends to be the later.

This BETTER goddamn mean that they are including Ultron - who, along with Thanos, is one of my all-time favorite Marvel villains.

Some 'Splainin' To Do: Masquerade carries connotations of a formal affair, so that's really not quite the right word. I suppose that we could go with the less formal "costume party", but that has connotations of a small, private affair.

I don't think that there's anything "delusional" about calling it cosplay. I'm sure that you don't literally think that anyone really believes that dressing up in a costume is some new invention (and if you do, the problem is that your own sense of smugness is causing you to assume that everyone else around you is a moron -- and you really ought to stop doing that because it makes you an ass).

I think that cosplay is a perfectly fine portmanteux that captures the idea of a large, informal event where people dress up in costumes.


How about "playing dress-up" ?

All I want is for them to ban cosplayer at comic conventions, and then make separate cosplayer conventions to keep them away from the scene. Furries have their own conventions. It's time we swept cosplayers out the door of comic cons and into their own attention-whoring freakshow.

I don't mind the origins of it: People who enjoyed the comics would wear a costume from their favorite character. But in the past decade or two, the cosplayers going to cons have been people who don't know jack-shiat about comics but show up to advertise their costuming skills, their bodies, or some other thing.

So just give them their own cons and ban them from the comic cons. Let's get cons back to the point where they're about comic books and creators, and not about the scantily-clad people who take advantage of the situation to promote themselves.

Full disclosure: Nick Fury is my second favorite Marvel character (after Iron Man), and when I first saw
the Sam Jackson version (in the Ultimates line), I too was a bit put off.

But then I read (in a Fark, no less) something that really brought me over to being a fan:

Back in the day, they wanted Nick Fury to be the baddest mofo in the Marvel Universe.  They wanted him
to be cool and heroic but also of toughness, and they modelled his look after Burt Lancaster (with
maybe a dash of Dean Martin thrown in).

When they decided to update the universe for the Ultimates, they wanted to maintain that same
persona but modernize it, and they came to the reasoned choice that the baddest, coolest person in
the world today is Samuel L. Jackson.

Looked at in that light, I couldn't refute the logic at all.

meanmutton: I'm not sure that you're going to get a lot of your fellow comicbook fans to agree to your Puritanical views.


It's a common debate.  I was a member of the San Diego Comic Con during the 80s when it was actually a comic book convention.  Seems to be more about movies and the entertainment industry in general these days and is certainly not a comic book convention any more.

In some ways it's interesting to see what it's become over the decades, but I won't deny that I miss the fact that it was a national gathering of comic book vendors with other merchandise offered....and it was easy to attend and see everything, which is difficult now.  I've been of the opinion that they should rename it the Entertainment Con, and revisit the idea of the national comic book vendors' gathering on a much smaller scale as was the case back in the day.

I don't mind the origins of it: People who enjoyed the comics would wear a costume from their favorite character.

Okay, a few things to unpack here, if I may.

First off, most conventions aren't comic book conventions. The majority of cons are science fiction cons and costumery has had a perfectly long and legitimate part of that scene.

If your gripe is about ComicCon in particular, may I point out that it's hardly fair to blame the cosplayers for "ruining" it. If you really want to get to the heart of why ComicCon is no longer about comics first, blame the con organizers for inviting in the big media companies (which they did, of course, to generate tickets and revenue). That's the beginning, middle and end to what's been driving the comic dealers and industry folk to the margins of the convention. In any case, that ship sailed at least fifteen years ago. Let it go, man. Just let it go.

In any case, I have very little patience with the "it used to be cool, but now it sucks" crowd. If your con has gotten so big that it's lost its intimate flavor then freakin' start a new con! Hell, go ahead and set up a con that specifically excludes cosplay if it's so important to you. Advertise to the too-cool-for-school crowd and keep it small. And if  that con gets away from you, start over again. Don't just sit and whine because things change over time. Light a candle, and stop cursing the darkness. 

And "playing dress up"? Really!? Don't you think that it's just a  tad obvious that you aren't trying to come up with an appropriate word for going to a con in a costume but are, instead, just trying to come up with a term that's as dismissive and diminutive as you can because you, personally, don't like cosplay? I'm perfectly fine with respecting your opinion on the matter, but, if you hate it so much, maybe you aren't the right person to be suggesting alternative names.

And finally, you aren't a psychic. You do not know why any given person is doing cosplay unless you talk to them. You do not have the ability to look at a crowd of cosplayers and make sort of accurate judgement about how much they  actually like comics. Frankly, you're acting like a borderline hipster. You've got that same fixation on having an "authentic" experience and the same automatic dismissal of latecomers to that experience.

At the end of the day, going to con is supposed to be fun. For a lot of people -- myself included -- that includes getting into costume. In spite of your complaining, doing so doesn't hurt you and the only possible way that this could be ruining your fun is if you are going out of your way to have your fun ruined. My advice to you is to just relax and seek out those parts of a con that you do like and don't worry about what the people around you are wearing.

FirstNationalBastard: Techhell: ZeroCorpse: Some 'Splainin' To Do: Masquerade carries connotations of a formal affair, so that's really not quite the right word. I suppose that we could go with the less formal "costume party", but that has connotations of a small, private affair.

I don't think that there's anything "delusional" about calling it cosplay. I'm sure that you don't literally think that anyone really believes that dressing up in a costume is some new invention (and if you do, the problem is that your own sense of smugness is causing you to assume that everyone else around you is a moron -- and you really ought to stop doing that because it makes you an ass).

I think that cosplay is a perfectly fine portmanteux that captures the idea of a large, informal event where people dress up in costumes.

How about "playing dress-up" ?

All I want is for them to ban cosplayer at comic conventions, and then make separate cosplayer conventions to keep them away from the scene. Furries have their own conventions. It's time we swept cosplayers out the door of comic cons and into their own attention-whoring freakshow.

I don't mind the origins of it: People who enjoyed the comics would wear a costume from their favorite character. But in the past decade or two, the cosplayers going to cons have been people who don't know jack-shiat about comics but show up to advertise their costuming skills, their bodies, or some other thing.

So just give them their own cons and ban them from the comic cons. Let's get cons back to the point where they're about comic books and creators, and not about the scantily-clad people who take advantage of the situation to promote themselves.

Um... what does a comic about someone who obviously has body image issues in the first place dressing in a costume that is probably inappropriate for their body type have to do with the fact that Cosplayers are generally annoying people who just want to

play and ruin comic conventions?

1) You entirely miss the point of the comic, which isn't surprising as it's pretty much talking about people like you and your idiocy as evidenced by the laughably idiotic "obviously has body image issues" and "costume that is probably inappropriate for their body type" while utterly ignoring the aspect where there is a woman with the "appropriate" body type for the costume who is also getting flack by people. So any comments about inappropriate body types is just laughably ignorant of the actual problem. (I'd quote the post before you as well for this point as the previous poster is along the same lines as your post, but you've given more than enough to go with as it is.)

2) Cosplayers don't ruin conventions. That's about the dumbest of all the arguments I've ever heard on the subject, and you're laughable for using it. (as is everyone else who does) This is part of the actual problem.  Banning cosplayers is essentially saying "Keep this stuff on the page only - I really don't want anything like this at all in real life. It causes me distress to see a real woman (or man, perhaps) dressed up as a comic book character." Dress it up as "Fat chicks shouldn't be Wonder Woman" or "Guys shouldn't be Sailor Moon" or "Big Costumes block the aisles" or "Go get your attention fix somewhere else" or whatever, but it all boils down to people like you not wanting this fantasy stuff to intrude on your real world, even when your real world is celebrating the fantasy world you enjoy and support.

3) Banning cosplay is also a way of saying "Stop liking things that I like in ways that I don't like people liking the things I like!" and makes just about as much sense that sentence. As if you hold the keys to the proper way of liking something, and those who like it in different ways should just stop. Dumb, arrogant, pitiful.

A fine description of cosplayers.

But seriously...


People want to play dress-up. Good for them. Then rent a hall and have a cosplayer convention, much the way people who want to buy comic books should be able to go to a comic book convention and buy comics, meet and get autographs from creators, and, you know, enjoy comic books without people essentially standing on their heads screaming LOOK AT ME! I LIKE PLAYING DRESS-UP! LOOK AT ME! LOOK AT ME!

And, yes, booth babes are stupid, too.

Who the hell gives a shiat?

We nerds and geeks spend half our young lives being ostracized and marginalized and told that we don't belong, and then the minute we get a little bit of power and a tiny little corner of our own, what's the first farking thing we do? Do we open our arms for all people who like the things we like? Do we welcome women and newbies and people who just want to enjoy the spectacle? Do we turn around and show the world that they were wrong to treat us that way, because we are generous and strong people worthy of respect?

No, we turn around and give them what they gave us. We tell the women that they're attention whores and fake gamers, we tell the newbies they aren't hardcore enough, and we tell the people who just want to enjoy the spectacle that they didn't earn the right. We're farking ridiculous as a group, and I'm sick of it.

So what if a woman made a sexy costume of Scarlet Witch just to get some attention? You miss the fact that SHE PUT EFFORT AND TALENT INTO MAKING A COSTUME OF SCARLET FRICKING WITCH. Who cares if people there are only fans of the movie version of the Joker? They like the Joker! Who cares if someone is there who happens to have come because his girlfriend like anime, and he's not into it himself? He's supporting someone who likes anime!

It's a damn hobby. We as a geek culture are making fools of ourselves trying to exclude everyone who doesn't know the title of the fourth Season 2 episode of The Original Series. Just get over it, embrace people who like things, and try to be happy with your life.

You'll find it helps with your blood pressure, and you'll make more friends. Maybe even some cute ones in Scarlet Witch outfits.

The first chick in TFA stole Vash the Stampede's jacket and cut it up into a cape or something.

Who would want that?

I mean, the kind of people who need to be validated by everyone because they dress up for attention, or label themselves as "geeks" and talk about their culture...
