why isn't Ant-Man called Gecko-Man at moments when he has only shrunk to the size of a gecko

bobo honkin' slobo babe (sic), Monday, 10 May 2021 19:49 (one month ago) link

Maybe he's just been different sizes of geckos all along. Also, he can't stick to things like geckos.

Josh in Chicago, Monday, 10 May 2021 19:50 (one month ago) link

But, like, if Ant-Man developed tech that let him stick to things, then sure, he could be Gecko-Man.

Josh.

I lolled.

He's Spider-Man because his spider-centric powers were triggered by a bite from a radioactive spider. For a more detailed explanation, consult the works of J. Michael Straczynski but don't say that you weren't warned. Once you come across the term 'spider totem' you might not be able to crawl back out of the rabbit hole.

Slime Goobody (Old Lunch), Monday, 10 May 2021 19:59 (one month ago) link

But he doesn't really have any spider-centric powers! He has kind of generic bug/insect powers, but the only really spider-y thing about him is the web slingers, and those did not come from the spider bite.

Has there ever been a Spider-man that wrapped baddies up in webs and then drained the life out of them with their fangs? There should be.

Josh in Chicago, Monday, 10 May 2021 20:07 (one month ago) link

I think some of the movies actually had him generating webs from his body, from (I guess) glands on his wrists.

I mean, when you think about it, how "incredible" really is the Hulk after all? Wouldn't you say he's more "grotesque", in the "comically distorted" meaning?

Man-Spider is the guy you're looking for Josh

lol imagine if Man-Spider was a hero (assuming it wasn't)

xpost The Incredulous Hulk.

xxpost That does ring a bell, maybe in the Raimi movies?

iron man is never seen pressing a shirt, wtf is goin on

the mai tai quinn (voodoo chili), Monday, 10 May 2021 20:53 (one month ago) link

The Raimi movies did make that valuable correction, yes (and also had an alarmed teenage Spidey learning about his body changing by uncontrollably jizzing white ropes of webbing all over his bedroom)

The Thing is rarely seen as loving, and is far more frequently dour or violent

xpost are you (someone up there) suggesting that Dr Strange hasn't renewed his medical license, and should therefore be stripped of his title? I mean, he's a trained doctor! If someone asked for a doctor on a flight should he stay silent?!

Josh in Chicago, Monday, 10 May 2021 22:32 (one month ago) link

Holy shit, Spiders-Man is incredible. If you think about it, that's kind of an instance of spiders being given the powers (shape?) of a *man*, the reverse Spider-Man.

Josh in Chicago, Monday, 10 May 2021 22:35 (one month ago) link

Stephen is very proud of his Masters degree in the mystic arts iirc

bobo honkin' slobo babe (sic), Monday, 10 May 2021 22:40 (one month ago) link

I thought Spiders-Man would be how Gruber says Spidermans.

DJI, Monday, 10 May 2021 23:13 (one month ago) link

His doctorate, surely. His dissertation was "Does Dormammu Shave? Grooming as an Indicator of Malevolence Among Demigod-Level Entities."

why does he use the title Master of the Mystic Arts then? category fraud. tell the HFPA that we're cancelling next year's Agamotton Orbs ceremony.

bobo honkin' slobo babe (sic), Monday, 10 May 2021 23:27 (one month ago) link

yeah sorry wmc u walked into that one. says master of arts right there on the tin.

Larry Elleison (rogermexico.), Monday, 10 May 2021 23:53 (one month ago) link

So he spent all that time at medical school, but he stopped magic school when he got his masters? No doctorate in mystic arts?

black panther does not hunt prey nocturnally nor does he sleep in a tree wtf

does a panther shit in the woods tho

It’s mostly places in Europe where you can get doctoral degrees in mystic arts, but he could get one in mystic arts history or administration

So was looking for an old post of mine from ILM and found this, New Mavel films which may have been the first post on ILX re the MCU

obviously I misspelled Marvel, but was interested to see the initially planned/announced films such as Shang-Chi (which obv has ended up being what 15, 20 movies on?)

There have been reports that the delays in making non-white-male films were significantly due to Mar-A-Lago’s beloved uncle Ike.

Hmm, I wouldn’t be surprised

I trust that review but only insofar as his descriptions of the show are accurate representations of just how not funny it is.

The fact that this was actually made by the Robot Chicken animation studio kinda seals the deal for me to the extent that the deal wasn't already pretty much sealed.

Slime Goobody (Old Lunch), Monday, 17 May 2021 18:27 (four weeks ago) link

I find a lot of Robot Chicken funny but most of it is due to Seth Green afaict
