    Honestly, it depends on the author. Depending on who is writing for either one at any given time, I will swap allegiances.

    The same is true, albeit to a much lesser extent, with artists/inkers.

    you just reminded me of this bringing up inkers and it made my day Baal

    I LOVE Spawn!

    me too but since not Marvel or DC I didn't go for the deep dive on him but it covers a lot of my favorite things in a comic book character. Tortured soul , Irreverent humor ( mostly from the rogue gallery but also from him) , one hell of an atmosphere , and variant character development arcs depending on the media used ( the character story varies between books, cartoons ,  movie, and games keeping it close but new) .  to quote a Joker , " If I'm going to have an origin story I'd prefer it to be multiple choice!"

    How about you though Loki where do you sit on the dc vs marvel -verse?


  4. Personally I feel these 2 are really just opposite sides of the same coin. With DC their heroes fall flat for me  never completely horrible but often uninspired however the company really shines through it's villains.

    Good heroes : John Constantine | Booster Gold

    I'm a sucker for a tortured soul or an irreverent joke  the 2 listed above fill those needs pretty well for me Batman isn't a bad fit but a little overspun at this point relying to heavily on his rogues gallery to stay entertaining. and Man-Bat good joke bad spin off to emphasize the point.

    low hanging fruit heroes : Superman | Green Arrow 

    Superman the alien prince charming feels more alien in its aim to be such a perfect human that actual humans kinda just suck. He goes right up there with South park Cartman's Ninja persona Balrog, "my super power is to have all the super powers" 

    Green arrow : how many times are we going to recycle the " I'm a billionaire vigilante" Gave batman a pass on this as a progenitor of the trope.

    Conversely I find the opposite to be true with Marvel. The heroes are empathetic and enticing however with limited exceptions the villains often come off as a monster of the week antagonist that even Elvira would be ripping on at least when compared to their DC counterparts.

    Favorites: Howard the Duck | Gwenpool

    Weak heroes: Scott Summers (cyclops) | Morph

    Scott Summers  not a terrible character but the unwaveringly Lawful/stupi... I mean good lawful/good approach just grinds on me and Morph  a quirky funny personality slapped on a Megaman power base of I shape shift into you and get your powers is pretty uninspired (Lets just fuse mystique and rogue and see what we get).

    Still There are also some prime Heroes from smaller labels like  Image and Dark Horse

    Honorable mentions:

    Hellboy (dark horse)

    Spawn (Image)

    Bra-Man ( Blind Ferret)

     

     


  5. My cabinet is a mix between Pampered Chef and All Clad as far as brands. most of it I've had almost 15 years at this point the papered chef stuff is holding up but starting to show some wear the all clad is still going strong despite some of the stupid "could have burned my house down" stuff  I've done with them. They weren't cheap and while I wouldn't recommend repeating the stress tests I've accidentally put mine through I would recommend the pots and pans.

    Played guitar for about 3 years when a friend of mine introduced me to the glory that is a bass. Picked that up and have been playing both for another 10 years or so. Have sang for most of my life, from choir up through a few bands and now I satisfy the performing itch by cleaning up at the occasional karaoke night at my local watering holes.

    I'd love to hear a little more about your transition to bass and how it varied from your previous guitar experience. got 7 years experience on my guitar but it would be a lie to say I haven't been drooling over the G&L L-2500 that's taken up residency at my local music shop.

    4 of the family-owned pizza places where I live have a version of dessert pizza, and places like Dominos and Pizza Hut have cookie or chocolate pizzas as well. At that point you're splitting hairs at where the line of pizza vs flat-thing-with-stuff-on-top is drawn, but I could even call a flat quesadilla a pizza in some circumstances. It's important to be open-minded 1f609.png

    I like both clearly drawn lines and tasty food , I'm not above enjoying either just calling it pizza =P
