    Wonder woman trained from a young age to fight.
    So did Carol.

    Superman is what he is because of his noble spirit he could abuse his power but he didn't.
    Neither does Carol.

    And then you got Captain sue.
    "Captain Sue" has all the traits these other heroes do.

    Also, your point was that "she didn't do anything to gain power"...and neither did any of these others. They were either born that way or had something happen to them that gave them powers.

    And if you want to talk about "Captain Sue"...Steve Rogers is a 98 lbs weakling that is instantly transformed into the world's greatest soldier...and suddenly every girl in the world is swooning for him.

    It's almost literally this:

    Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead arent good.
    Let's look at the test results. You are a horrible person. It says right here, you're a horrible person. We weren't even testing that. Don't let the horrible person thing get you down though. Science justified your parents choice to abandon you.

    The complaints about Captain Marvel are really forced and groundless; all they do is betray an ulterior motive for not approving of the character.

    Its pretty clear in the context of the movie that she is a hero before she ever has any powers, and for me at least, that's what counts.


    I don't think I posted an unpopular opinion yet, I liked Last Jedi best of the new trilogy, granted I hated Force Awakens and couldn't sit through whatever the last one was called.

    My problem with Captain Marvel was the writing and direction of the character. We're often told about things in the world but not shown them, her character arc was flimsy and not put together very well, and unfortunately (imo) she's just not particularly likeable. The movie presents her as having somewhat of a chip on her shoulder, which is fine, but then it doesn't really do much to address it. Her character "flaws" aren't a detriment to her goals (Whatever those were) and as a result, there's no internal conflict. She doesn't have to grow past her flaws to reach those goals, so I had a difficult time relating to her character.

    Star Wars sequels were decent.

    Buffy Season 7 was actually the best.

    Sailor Moon Crystal is awesome.

    Fullmetal Alchemist (2003 series) is better than Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood

    So.......like Dr. Strange, who's a rich asshole, who loses use of his hands due to his rich asshole-ry and gets rewarded by being probably the most powerful human being on Earth? Where all sorts of shit happens in the world that isn't shown? Why didn't that movie get this backlash, hmmm?

    Her character is far more "worthy" of superhero status than Dr. Strange. She goes through much more of a struggle, and has to literally go against everything she knew to be true to really be heroic. She literally disavows her culture for it.

    Absolutely none of this has anything to do with what I said. Feel free to have your opinion, I stated mine.

    Or people are seeing the comic character, who it seemed turned into something of a shit...and an overconfident one thinking she could go one on one with the Hulk.

    Adoring Breaking Bad is not an unpopular opinion. It's one of the most loved and most acclaimed shows of the past 20 years heh.

    I never got that argument either. I've never been a fan of Captain Marvel, but it has nothing to do with sexism, I just find her obnoxious and unlikable. There are tons of female characters I like a lot, I read a ton of female based comics, but I do NOT like Captain Marvel.

    Guessing you are talking about the German Nerkflix series Dark? If so, that's not unpopular at all. Breaking Bad and Dark are both highly praised by critics and fans alike.

    Terminator; Dark Fate and Star Trek Beyond were both excellent third acts.

    -Game of Thrones is overrated to high heavens

    -so is The Walking Dead

    -the Star Wars prequels weren't that bad. Just the effects lol

    -most children's shows today are worse than ones from like 10 years ago

    -TV shows should be less violent/'adult' than they are now

    -South Park is ok, but it's not as good as it used to be


    (I don't plan on ever watching GoT or TwD, they're too violent/adult and I prefer animated movies/tv shows)

    Apu is a weird situation, he was "meta offensive". If he were voiced exactly the same by someone of Indian descent he wouldn't be considered offensive. The character himself wasn't offensive in the show, unless you consider hardworking, family centered immigrants offensive.
    I agree that he influenced Americans perception of Indians, but that's not the Simpsons or Apu's fault, there were zero, absolutely zero other popular media Indian characters. Apu being on the biggest cultural show of the 90s also meant wide spread dissemination.

    But to say he "defined" you as a person of indian descent (or appearance)is completely ridiculous. Maybe as a kid you might catch some heat, but that's part of growing up. But to say that the maturity of the average person you encounter is so low that they see you as a cartoon character is asinine.
    Thats victimhood shit, you place your own failings at someone else's feet.

    Superhero movies should only be enjoyed by people who are 18 and younger

    The ending of Voltron: Legendary Defender isn't as bad as people claim it to be. The ending made me cry but that isn't necessarily a bad thing. It could have benefited from another season or a few extra episodes but it was still enjoyable and was beautifully animated.

    Each to their own, but I can't understand people that throw things out there like 'I hate all anime'.

    It's like saying you hate all western animation; It's just so broad, how can you possibly hate all of it?

    While I certainly don't hate all of it (the original GiTS is one of my favorite cyberpunk stories) I broadly dislike the presentation/aesthetic of anime, especially as it relates to female characters. So much of it is obviously male gaze/fan service type shit, and it never fails to disturb me how many female anime characters have the voice of like, a 4 year-old. I'm sorry (no, I'm not), but anyone with a fetish for hypersexualized women that sound like young children needs to be locked the f*** away.

    Moving onto the broader subject, the american version of The Office didn't resonate with me at all. I watched most of the first season and found myself hating all but 3 or 4 of the characters. I figured that probably wasn't a good sign.

    Oh and Game of Thrones does nothing for me. Roughly a decade of torture-porn capped by a final season of episodes so disastrously terrible and anti-climactic, that not even the show's most ardent fans dare defend them. I fully acknowledge that the show had some good 'slow burn' stories and some iconic characters, but S8 squandered most of them.
    My greatest fear is that one day, my MMO-Champion ignore list will run out of space.

    The Hunger Games Series was overall really good.
