    I fear too that Marvel have developed a time machine and travelled 50 FUCKING YEARS into the past to inject feminism in the She-Hulk character just for the purpose of score woke points in the present.

    Unfuckingbelievable you guys.....simply unfuckingbelievable....I don't even..... LOL

    I always loved the She-Hulk character but was never huge into her comics. Always liked her as part of the avengers.

    On a side note, why do we not have Rick Jones yet in the MCU? I know he is a side character to the Hulk, but this could be the the place to introduce him. Maybe they'll make him into a plot to bring in A-Bomb... possibilities are endless :P

    You wouldn't believe the amount of grifters/man children I block on a daily basis on youtube, and even those I block, they still come back... In a way I kind of pity them, they are so jaded they just see wokeness everywhere, even when it doesn't exist. a solo women in a show come sout then its labelled 'woke'. Then when you call them out on what a strong female character is, they'll fall back onto the argument of Ellen Ripley every fucking time. But anything recent like anything that comes out now is 'woke'... I couldn't live that miserably. Do these people enjoy something that isnt the bubble of their childhood nostalgia? Its very sad.

    Also I haven't paid one single bit of attention to that Amber Herd trail. But I know there are people obsessed over it for some reason I don't know why

    "People fear, not death, but having life taken from them. Many waste the life given to them, occupying themselves with things that do not matter. When the end comes, they say they did not have time enough to spend with loved ones, to fulfill dreams, to go on adventures they only talked about... But why should you fear death if you are happy with the life you have led, if you can look back on everything and say, 'Yes, I am content. It is enough.'" - Wynne ( Dragon Age: Origins.)

    On one side we have @Ihavewaffles who just links vids intead of expressing his opinion (when he knows it's unpopular) because he thinks that shields it from criticism ( really brave) and on the other side we have a dumbass "expert" in the vid who doesn't even know who Titania is , She-Hulk archnemesis ( is this a joke? Jesus).

    The circus came to town.

    Presumably because it's a case of a woman who did some objectively shitty stuff, so they want to make sure everyone knows it happens. But I can safely say I have no information on (or interest in) the topic beyond what I saw in that Legal Eagle video briefly summarizing it.

    The dialogue was pretty cringe, and the CGI looked awful, but honestly par for the course with the Disney shows lately so another skip on that front.

    because 'boy power' doesnt come along with guys upstaging females over and over. girlpower is ALWAYS girls beating boys and it gets cringe REALLY fast. If its girls overcoming their own weaknesses the way 'boy power' does then its fine, nobody is bothered by that, but when you need to emasculate males over and over to prop up your female lead then its awful.

    Yeah, the CGI in the She-Hulk trailer looks janky af.

    My fox what will those dastardly villains do next force wokeness into the Xmen? How dare they!
    All I ever wanted was the truth. Remember those words as you read the ones that follow. I never set out to topple my father's kingdom of lies from a sense of misplaced pride. I never wanted to bleed the species to its marrow, reaving half the galaxy clean of human life in this bitter crusade. I never desired any of this, though I know the reasons for which it must be done. But all I ever wanted was the truth.

    The tinder gag was a bit cringe too.
    Supposedly, Hulk isn't in it very much (which I think makes sense, She-Hulk should get the focus). I've also read that the whole series is a "mess." But I guess we'll see.

    I was actually surprised to learn that Moon Knight is apparently somewhat divisive, and outright hated in some cases. I thought it was one of the better Marvel shows.

    Yeah, if both of you could just not watch it, that'd be neat. Save the site some bandwidth by having less whinging about "agendas" and things being too "woke." It already seems to be upsetting you both lol

    Ya become movies never make woman damsel’s in distress, take away there agency, make them nothing but trophy’s for men, fridge them for main character development, or other wise infantilize them so men can be portrayed as lady kills, hero’s or just cool because they get the girl.

    I mena its nice to see an update on him, we got nothing until shang chi post credit scene, and he was in his banner form, not hulk, so i hope we get some explanations on that.

    Well i would argue a lot of marvel series kinda being a bit bloated or a mess, because they close everything 6 eps.

    What i do hope is she breaking shit up, instead of just doing gags, what i miss from the super powered heroes

    The thing i dislike was using the applicative, like, maybe it would be funny some years ago.

    That is surprising. I absolutely loved Moon Knight and the character(s) — it’s my favorite Marvel show thus far.

    Moon Knight was great when it was dealing with the main character's issues. Less so when it was just being a superhero show. I liked the hippo lady, though. So that's a plus.

    I would definitely expect her to wreck some shit, but I dunno if I'd expect to see a lot of it. I've not read a synopsis or anything for the series, so I'm not sure what angle it'll play out. Is it going mostly for Lawyer She-Hulk?

    I'd probably place it in the top 2, at least, personally. I think Hawkeye just edges out over it, mostly because Yelena is simply a great character.

    Clearly Endgame was based on a real story and Feige has a time machine he’s been using to make things like X-Men and She-Hulk “woke”. You can understand his confusion.

    They love Ellen Ripley because she's constantly terrorized and gaslit by her own crew and basically has to fight and claw her way to survival when if her crew just listened to her they would have had a much easier time.

    Same thing with Sarah Connor in the first Terminator, who was the definition of a damsel in distress, and even in T2 was physically incapable of protecting her son and had to rely on a reprogrammed Arnie Terminator.
