While re-watching Captain America last night I realized that Chris Evans has played three different comic book characters. Then I looked it up and discovered I was wrong and he's played four (five if you count voice work).

Huh, I didn't realize some of those we're based on comics.

Also, it finally answered a nagging question I've had for a while.  I remember reading a comic series when I was a kid who's protagonists were kids, and one had the power to control his own density, but I could never remember what it was called, now I know it was Power Pack.  I wonder if I sought out some old issues if they'd hold up.

I saw it when it first came out.  It's actually a pretty good movie.  My only quibble is that Bruce Willis would've been better as the lead rather than Tom Hanks.  Also, I believe it's Paul Newman's last live-action film role.

It's also the picture you'd find next to "trying too hard" in the dictionary if the dictionary started doing phrases.

To find a comic character that's further into the "protests too much" category of badassery you have to hit up the mid-90s properties where Leifeld had full creative control.  It sells about at that level of believability.

TuteTibiImperes: Huh, I didn't realize some of those we're based on comics.

Also, it finally answered a nagging question I've had for a while. I remember reading a comic series when I was a kid who's protagonists were kids, and one had the power to control his own density, but I could never remember what it was called, now I know it was Power Pack. I wonder if I sought out some old issues if they'd hold up.

The original run by creator/writer Louise Simonson with art by Brent "Astro City" Anderson is pretty decently good even now. The Power siblings made excellent PoV characters for the Marvel Universe. When they met Spider-Man or She-Hulk or the X-Men or whoever, it was as if we were meeting them for the first time. DC's nearest equivalent at the time would be the Will Peyton version of Starman ― a previously ordinary man suddenly empowered and inducted into the world of DC superheroes.

When Jon Bogdanove took over the art, he also had some story input and later became the full writer/artist, and was most notable for bringing Franklin Richards onto the team as "Tattletale," with the power of prophetic dreams (this was when he was subconsciously suppressing his vastly more powerful reality-altering abilities). Bogdanove was one of the first Marvel writers to actually give Franklin a personality (rather than having him be merely Kid Plot Device), though considering that he based both the personality and visual appearance on his then-young real-life son named (and I kid you not) Benjamin Kal-El Bogdanove (yes, Kal-El was his middle name), that wasn't as difficult a feat of creative writing as it might otherwise have been. The personality that Franklin has had ever since has been largely based on Bogdanove's Power Pack run. Of course, during this time there were crossovers with the Fantastic Four and Avengers (at the time, the Baxter Building had been destroyed and Four Freedoms Plaza not yet completed, so the Richards clan was staying at Avengers' Mansion, IIRC).

After Bogdanove left, the now sadly late, great Dwayne McDuffie (R.I.P.) took over the writing chores. It was supposed to be a lasting run, but there was some sort of power struggle at Marvel, and he was kicked off after only one issue. We'll never know now where that would've gone. I did ask him some years before he passed away, but he said that he'd forgotten. :-( The one issue was basically a riff on "Scooby Doo."

That was the last issue of Power Pack, in the same sense that there was never a third "Aliens" movie nor any sequels to "Highlander." There were other comics that bore the name in that first run, but I don't count them, and neither does anyone else I know of who ever enjoyed the original series. The writer that took it over was named Mike H!gg!ns, whose name I cannot to this day bring myself to actually type correctly. On the late, lamented GEnie dial-up text-based multi-user online service, in the Comics and Animation RoundTable (of which I was an Assistant SysOp for awhile), his name was declared Official Profanity, and could only be typed with fig-leaf punctuation, just like any other profanity word. Think about what M. N!ght $hy@m@l@n did to The Last Airbender, and you get an idea of how badly this once-enjoyable series had been utterly ruined.

Among other things, H!gg!ns had decided that when the eldest brother, Alex Power, hit puberty, the Kymellian powers he'd gained from the dying Kymellian Ælfyre Whitemane would transform him into a Kymellian himself. Yes. Alex Power turned into a bipedal horse. Oh, and their dad found out about their powers, then inexplicably exhibited super powers of his own. It was a horrific mess, best forgotten and ignored.

The series was finally, mercifully canceled not long thereafter. We fans considered it a Kevorkian-level mercy-killing.

About a year or so later, Louise Simonson was brought back to write a trade paperback-sized one-shot that attempted to undo the H!gg!ns damage. She retconned the Kymellian "Alex" and super-powered "Dr. James Power" into alien-made clones, with the real Alex and Dr. Power having been captured by aliens just prior to H!gg!ns taking over. But there were some other continuity glitches, for which I must forgive her since reading the H!gg!ns issues thoroughly enough to undo all his damage must've been almost like watching her own children get repeatedly raped.

Well, the series was never revived in its original continuity, though some of the characters did show up elsewhere such as in the New Warriors. Notably, older versions of three of the characters were guests at Franklin Richards's birthday party, and it was quite apparent that Franklin's parents at least knew of their abilities, since Jack was using his density power quite openly during the party. Strangely enough, Franklin himself hadn't aged anywhere near as much (Alex was nineteen in that issue, and Jack about twelve, the age Alex was in the main series, yet Franklin still seemed to be at most an early grade-schooler ― this was even commented on in the letter column.) More recently there have been some mini-series teaming an altered version of them up with various Marvel characters and teams, and one that re-told their origin in considerably altered form. There may have been other appearances, but I've pretty much given up on mainstream superhero comics ever since Civil War and the New 52, the latter of which I never even sampled.

As for the pilot mentioned in TFA, I did see that. I think I even still have it on VHS somewhere, which is how it was available at the time. I don't know if the tape still works.

They were supposed to have guest-starred in an episode of the mid-1990s Spider-Man (not "Spectacular," but the one before that) animated series, since the head writer of that was active on GEnie and had asked us who we'd like to see on it and that was by far the most popular request. He had no idea who they were, though. I watched the whole series, but they never showed up.

That said, the Power Pack kids (and Franklin and some other super-powered Marvel Universe pre-teens) did have a brief non-speaking cameo in the "Support Your Local Sky-Father" episode of Super Hero Squad (when Thor is showing the children of Super City the city's new "super-safe" bubble-wrapped playground). I almost shouted for joy at my TV when I saw that (even though youngest sibling Katie was inexplicably drawn as being taller than her considerably older sister Julie). I do believe that that is the only official on-screen appearance of the Pack to date, though there are episodes of Mighty Avengers and Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. I need to catch up on, and they may well have cameo-ed on one of those. (Heck, a live action version of the Power family might be a good basis for an episode of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.!)

And now, CSB time: only twice have I attended the San Diego Comic-Con, and that was about ¼ century ago. At one of those, I met Louise Simonson and Jon Bogdanove (and Dwayne McDuffie, too, among others), then saw a then-eleven-year-old-ish kid near Jon who looked awfully familiar. Sure enough, his name tag declared him as Kal-El Bogdanove. I asked him for his autograph. He got this puzzled look on his face and asked me why I'd want his autograph. I pointed out that his dad had based his version of Franklin Richards on him, so of all the thousands of people there, he was the closest thing to an actual honest-to-goodness comic book superhero. He got a kick out of that and signed his name.

I wonder what happened to that? I hope it didn't get thrown out during one of my moves since then, but I fear it has. I haven't seen it in decades. Time to go searching in the storage.

Also regarding TFA: how is it that the one unaired live-action pilot of Power Pack qualifies as a "movie that has actually been made," yet the entire three seasons of Lynda Carter's Wonder Woman (Season One of which had arguably the best-ever opening theme song for a superhero TV series, even better than the 1960s Alan West / Burt Ward Batman live-action series or arguably even the 1960s animated Amazing Spider-Man) doesn't, since the whole list is ostensibly about heroes who've made it to the screen before Wonder Woman? Or The Flash for that matter (John Wesley Shipp ― one of the few fanfics I ever wrote was for that series, back on GEnie ― it brought an actual Gorilla Grodd [not just some human mobster "up in Helltown" who had that as his mob nickname] into the TV series continuity)?

As bad as an unconstrained Liefeld is (and he is), he's vastly superior to M!ke H!gg!ns.

I like both the JL/U and B&tB versions of Aquaman. The JL/U version seemed at least partly based on Peter David's fine work with the character (I have another CSB to tell sometime about meeting him at the San Diego Comic-Con, involving my roommate there and The Atlantis Chronicles).

You seem to have an encylopediac knowledge of comics so i'm wondering if you can help me out.

there was a comic i read in the mid 80s... probably 84 or 85 or so... that i cannot for the life of me recall the name, and i'm curious what it was. it was probably around the time powerpack started since i remember getting the first issues of that one around then.

basically the protagonist was a guy who had a couple six guns and was supernaturally accurate, and he had like a psychic ghost sister or something. it was kind of dark and weird, i think it might have been one of the smaller publishers but other than first comics i couldn't really think of anything to search for. and i dunno looking at their lists along with marvel and dc i didn't really see any titles that matched. ring any bells?

Boojum2k: rynthetyn: that movie was indirectly responsible for my old church spliting, but that's a long story bro

Oh come on! That's too juicy a hook to lay out and then snatch away.

Got to be better than a schism over a bike path, at the least.


Well, the hook is more interesting than the rest, at least as I see it. Basically, while I was home on break from college some of us went to see the movie, Including my 15 year old brother and a girl from my church who was about the same age. Next day my brother and that girl were talking about the movie before Sunday school started.

This was a small church and the youth Sunday school class was taught by the senior pastor, who, in hearing the conversation decided to go into former English teacher mode and use it as a teachable moment and start a discussion about evaluating the movies and music they consume. That week's class was a hit so he dropped whatever had been planned for the class and started a multi-week class on interpreting the media they consume, looking at what kinds of messages and themes a work is sending, etc. Basically, teaching kids how to think critically about mass entertainment media rather than be unthinking consumers, and while that's fairly basic, it's a far cry from the, "Metallica and Megadeth (and later, Nirvana and Pearl Jam) are satanic and going to R-rated movies is a sin," lectures I'd get when I was a kid in Southern Baptist Sunday school.

All well and good until the kids were supposed to bring in music they liked with a copy of the lyrics so they could discuss it. Let's just say that one kid brought in a song by A Perfect Circle that had an F-bomb, pastor photocopied the lyrics and handed them out to class without reading it first, parents discovered it and shiat hit the fan. Several of the more conservative long time member families left and started their own church over it, which, in a small church is a big deal.

And it never would have happened if we hadn't gone to see Road to Perdition. I believe the time a youth group event got rained out and they watched The Matrix at my brother's suggestion was also cited as a reason for the split. So yeah, basically my brother's tastes in movies as a 15 year old boy helped split a church.

 Yeah, it's still kind of a weird chain of events though. In the end, that church ended up folding because it was playing to a niche market that didn't really exist, and the church that split off over all of that bought the building, so I guess they won in a way.

It would, in fact, be until the year 1998 that another Marvel movie made it to cinemas the first Blade, which in itself is a slightly surprising (though very successful) comic to film franchise.

I was a huge Hewlett and Martin fan, and Tank Girl tried to capture a bit of the comic, but that is damn hard. But hey, they did have a Cole Porter number in the middle of the dang thing, so some of its other sins are washed away.

As for Howard the Duck...I loved the series, and yeah, I am fond of the movie. A lot of folks hated it, but it was goofy fun, and the world was just not ready for a movie comic duck with a dirty mouth, and not ready for a toned down version of a fairly satirical work and trying to make it into a kid's movie. THAT is the sin, was the real issue: taking an adult oriented comic, and trying to make it family fare.

The thing with Guardians of the Galaxy is that Marvel are like Pixar now. They can do Guardians of the Galaxy because there's enough people out there that trust them to give them at least a reasonably entertaining movie in the same way that Pixar can make a movie about an old guy teaming up with a fat kid.

People forget that while it was in production, a lot of the press were like "Iron Man? Isn't he 2nd string character"? Marvel and RDJ have made him, via film, one of the two most popular comic book characters on earth (along with Batman).

I disagree actually. Sure, Batman now is cartoonishly powerful; he's god in a box with his 'I plan for everything, know everything, and have a gadget for everything because A+B'.

But 99% of the adventures in comics take place on solid land, or in space.  His powers don't work there, do they?  While most of the earth is water, aside from being a terrorist, you can't really be much of a hero with that power, since humans by and large live on the land, and operate there.  So arguably, even if we reduce batman from 'god' to 'above average but still human' to put the two on comparable footing, I'd say that Batman still wins due to flexibility and genius combined with the limitations of Aquaman's powerset.  Unless the authors just decide Bats is a complete moron for the book to let Aquaman win, or they set it in/under water etc.

He doesn't fight evil.
He plays cruel tricks on it!


I want a Deadpool movie and a Transmetropolitan movie.

I saw Art School Confidential. I don't remember it being bad, but I also don't remember anything else about it at all.

hubiestubert: THAT is the sin, was the real issue: taking an adult oriented comic, and trying to make it family fare.


It's hard to imagine George Lucas would do something like that.

rynthetyn: That reminds me, I need to watch Road to Perdition again. It's one of the few movies that might actually be better than the book.

/that movie was indirectly responsible for my old church splitting, but that's a long story bro


Jaws, The Godfather, The Exorcist...

/hmm, a lot of great movies of the 70s were based on bad books

I never knew they made a Power Pack movie.  Decent comic because I was a kid when it came out, but I don't think I could tolerate watching a movie about it now.

carnifex2005: Snapper Carr: Snapper Carr: Missing one

timujin: Let's put that in perspective: Groot and Rocket Raccoon will beat Wonder Woman, The Flash and Aquaman

There is no reason for Aquaman to make it to the big screen.  Actually, allow me to be more succinct: There is no reason for Aquaman.

JL/U Aquaman > most of DC's other characters.

Visual evidence to support my claim.

This guy is not someone you want to fark with

Meh. DC tried to Namor up Aquaman too much and that failed to click.


I liked when one of the Ultimen tried to use hisnhydro powers on him, Aquaman totally owns him and says "King of the Seas, remember?"
