  • -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  • Okay, I'm just going to put in my own thoughts here because while some of what is written here has value, this is a particularity one-sided argument from a Marvel fan. Now, I do like Marvel, and while parts of DC has been bugging me, I don’t think this kind of response is necessary.
  • Yes, a Wonder Woman movie should be possible, and I would say that the problem might coming from an unclear origin story. But there’s still a fair bit of Wonder Woman in the comics, and she also does kick ass.
  • Yes, Batwoman is a lesbian in the comics, but what this person has forgotten is that she is still not comfortable with revealing that publicly. In both 52 and Batwoman: Elegy, her character is expanded on and she is shown to have had relations with Renee Montoya (now The Question) and Maggie Sawyer (see Batwoman #17, in which Kate proposes to Maggie).
  • “Dark, gritty, and cynical” is a direction which some, but not all, of DC’s comics have taken. While it would make sense that Batman would generally be darker in tone, some comics (like the new Aquaman) do feature too much of the modern idea that people want something super serious. However, Grant Morrison’s work on Action Comics does not reflect this, and I’m sure that there are other comics which also are free from this feeling. This sounds a lot like a complaint about Nolan’s Batman films, which I don’t believe are as bad with this whole “gritty” thing as people make them out to be. The problem is in other things (i.e. Superman) trying to copy that same style. But it is also important to note that while avoiding “grittiness” is good, going too much in the other direction doesn’t make that comics better if it only relies on being silly.
  • For the Batman vs Superman movie, a new actor and suit make a lot of sense. Considering that Christian Bale may not have wanted to play Batman again, getting a new actor for a completely different movie isn’t a big deal. And the new suit is a direct reference to Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns suit, so that makes a lot of sense considering the Batman vs Superman plot. Cameo from Wonder Woman would be pretty great. I should also point out that because of Disney’s ownership of a large part of Marvel, they more than likely have a lot more money to do live action films. And just because they have more money doesn’t mean that good films will be made. I mean, look at the Thor movies.
  • I will include links for a number of DC’s characters of colour.

  • Let’s also not forget all the alternate worlds as well.
  • Batman’s personality changes with writers, but with writers like Grant Morrison, Paul Dini, and Jeph Loeb, you can generally get a good Batman story. But I feel like this is a comparison between Batman comics and Marvel films, where the actor’s presence is felt much more.
  • I hope that this person has realized that there have been a number of Batman works with “Dark Knight” as the title. As for the new Superman movie, personally I don’t think it’s awful. At the very least future archivists will be able to tell the difference between the old and new Superman instead of the more annoyed trait to title every reboot with the exact same title.
  • Yes, the new Marvel movie is “crazy and hip!” we all get it.
  • The generalization that every single person in DC thinks that is a bit presumptuous.
  • The new female Thor isn’t even that great of an idea. See (http: //absurdistscribbler.tumblr.com/post/92206521257/thor-is-being-replaced-with-a-woman)
  • New Black Captain American is just The Falcon taking on the identity. Cool idea.
  • All in all, while Marvel is doing some neat things, DC’s isn’t the awful place. Yes, there are problems, but I’m sure they’ll be resolved.
  • Also, DC puts out tons of animated films and series (far more than Marvel), generally receiving lots of praise.

2005-2014

Good lord, this is the most stark portrayal I’ve seen of this.

Holy crap, over nine years?

I haveto reblog something like this. This is actually a very good argument for why the minimum wage needs to be raised.

Why do we say minimum wage needs to be raised?

Why aren’t we asking how to bring down the cost of food/education/health care instead?

Why is our generation’s first response to a crisis “Give me more money”?

I don’t want people to be poor. But, I don’t understand why we’re supposed to just accept higher food costs and higher health care costs, and at the same time demand to be paid more by our employers, who are also incurring increases in insurance costs, rising oil prices, vehicle maintenance, etc. Businesses are already being forced to pay more money for everything required to operate their business.

And don’t play the “evil corporations have enough money, they’re just greedy” card. The big conglomerates like WalMart, McDonald’s, Home Depot, Microsoft — yeah, they can afford to take that hit. But most businesses can’t. 

Small businesses can’t afford it. Small businesses go out of business when you raise minimum wage. Unemployment rises. Without small business competing with big businesses, those evil corporations you hate so much automatically win. The small businesses keep the United States running, and they keep small towns employed. They keep the economy competitive.

But raising minimum wage shuts them down. Big businesses will survive. Small businesses will not. It hurts our economy, and only benefits big business by shutting down their smaller competitors.

This is simple. When raising the minimum wage, you ensure only the wealthiest businesses survive. Small business dies. Entrepreneurs suffer. 

My aunt currently works for a small pizzeria, and the cost of operation is skyrocketing thanks to rising food costs. If we raise minimum wage, we know that she will be getting laid off, or worse, the entire business will go under.

We’re asking the wrong questions. The question should not be “Why aren’t people giving me more money?!” … the question should be: "Why is the cost of living rising?" and “What can I do about it?”

FYI, this is coming from a person who has lived in poverty most of his life. I will not go into my full family history, but we’ve never been higher than “low-middle class”. I do not want, or feel I have the right, to suddenly start demanding people pay me more money. I want the cost of living to go down. I’m not greedy, and I’m not looking for the quick simple solution of “give me more money!!” We should be able to survive on a somewhat low income…. but we can’t. I think that needs to be fixed before we demand more cash for menial jobs.

And that’s my unpopular opinion of the day!

The Google trend for the search query “quadratic formula”.
It repeats in the same pattern every year. Down in summer, up in September, down again in December and up again in spring time before going down again in the summer. And so it goes on forever.
