    Which I guess is weirdly in character for this version of Danny Rand, who somehow manages to spend 15 years studying with martial arts masters without acquiring as much as a SHRED of self-discipline.

    I thought it was because they didn't actually start any training until two weeks before filming?

    Keep in mind that the showrunner for season 1 was the Inhumans guy. In general not a great track record.

    Well, according to Iron Fist stunt coordinator Brett Chan,

    "Everyone's fighting and the actor doesn't want to train and...'Guys, throw me a bone. Give me something to work with here.' That's probably why the best sequences were with Jessica Henwick because she trained four hours a day and she had zero martial arts experience."

    the showrunner wasn't helping.

    I mean theres only one Empire. Of all the classic Marvel Empires the only one that now is relevant in the MCU are the Kree. The rest are non existant now or decimated.
    Just because we didn't saw them yet doesn't mean they don't exist.

    No , of course not .I thought that was implicit in my answer. I have zero doubts Galactus is out there....the Beyonders, the Phoenix Force , the Abstracts, the Shi'Ar ,Spartax , the negative Zone and Annihilus, the other Elders ( and I hope not depicted like the Grandmaster and the Collector) , the other Faltines and more extra-dimensionals beings (Cyttorak,etc) , the Infinites....even the One-Above-All as much as it risk offending some judeochristian groups. They are all having a good cosmic party playing marbles with planets but right now we have what we have and the picture leave us with little to choose.

    I mean there's so little yet that Adam Warlock is in the oven right now being cooked by....the Sovereigns? Really? Well, yeah , there was not much to chose from. Quill is the son of ...Ego? Not J'Son? What the...? Wait...the Eye of Agamotto is the Time Gem? Wait....that looked like a cosmic cube,behaved like a cosmic cube but it's an Infinity Gem? Wait....Drax was born not created as Thanos archnemesis? He hates Thanos because he killed his family not because its in their bioprogram?

    They have to make this strange relations because they introduce an element but the rest of the puzzle that explain that element it's not in the MCU (yet) and although some may think it's a creative decission I have my doubts. Quoting Newton Marvel Comics walks over the shoulder of giants , they write having a mountain of prior stories and narratives and just add a leaf to the giant tree while Marvel Studios had to start from scratch and connect the pieces of the puzzle as they go having way way less pieces of that puzzle so sometimes we have to excuse them if the fucking Sovereigns create Adam Warlock and if Kamala is not an inhuman ( or...is she?) but still is Kree related.

    so a couple of things that were brought to my attention that I missed on my first watch of episode 3.

    1. when they find the bracelet in 1942, the arm it's attached to is blue. gee, I wonder which race that could be.
    2. there is a brief moment when the camera gives us an aerial view of the room, the moonlight gives us a very clear shot of the floor... there are 10 distinct rings carved into the floor, each with a different symbol. wasn't there a recent movie about 10 rings? the same 10 rings that are sending a signal out to somewhere unknown?

    I need them to stop leaving me on a cliffhanger. xD It's making me angy.

    ETA: However, Kamala remains the most freaking adorable character, she really makes the entire series.

    I mean, the strong implication is that it's Djinn, not Kree. Not everything blue is Kree.

    That said, there's pink Kree, too.

    And which were almost certainly of either extraterrestrial or interdimensional origin, yeah.

    How does it all connect? Gotta keep watching!

    Watched episode 3, finally. Been a pretty solid series, so far.

    Also the guy who did the last couple of seasons of Dexter.
    Isms bore me. I think they are only brought by people who seek to marginalize the potential of each ism to provide something meaningful. Name it, Capitalism, Socialism, even Communism-- all contain something of merit towards structuring a society. The biggest flaw in human history has been the need to take the worst of a system along with the best. It doesn't have to be all of one and none of another.

    Huh, never knew that. I guess having the right connections is better than having actual talent.

    Well, he's a decent enough writer...he just doesn't seem to have the skillset to actually run a show.

    The latest episode was weird ... I honestly don't know where they are taking this series.

    I'm curious in what you thought it was "weird." I thought it was a pretty good episode, overall.

    Introduces the Red Dagger, introduces some culture to people, even introduces some important history regarding India that people might not have known about, and mentioned what people in this thread talked about regarding Kamala's name. By the end of the episode, I feel like what we're going to see going forward is Kamala meeting her aunt, that then gives us two bangles (Aisha said there was meant to be two), we'll see Kamala's family be saved/getting on the last train, and then Aisha probably disappears because they use their bangles together to actually send Aisha home, which is why Aisha literally just vanishes off the face of the Earth at this point in time. Two bangles making it a trip that is no longer dangerous, ofc.

    I watched episode 3 and I really really hope it's a vision and not her stuck in the past. What's next? She is actually a manifestation of Aisha but somehow due to <insert bs reasoning here> she lost her memories and everything.
    Marvel might not go that route, because they generally do shows decently instead of the uber cliches like "It was all a dream" and "It was all due to memory loss"
