The Boys #44

As the greatest religious festival on the superhero calendar gets under way in New York, the Homelander finds himself front and centre, very much against his will.

    Sokka did fall in love with the white haired princess in the 2 part season finally of book one and she was sorta created only so he’d have a love interest and for her to die tragically. But the spirit world thing… I had the same “oh crap this is gonna suck moment” you had when watching Clash of the Titans at the beginning when they say “…Hades created the Kraken from his own flesh and the Kraken killed the Titans”. I don’t get the Hollywood fad to re-invent existing material, it has fans for a reason don’t fix what ain’t broke to feel “original”.

    I loved the series and wished the movie would be good, but as soon as I saw who was directing it all hopes died.

    P.S.-
    I now fear for the Robotech movie more then ever.

    Fake-Rigo vs Rodrigo: Winner – Molly in a Matthew suit… or it would be a tie because Rodrigo went for the TPK and wiped both he and his high-pitched doppelganger out.

    Casper vs. Slimer: Slimer… cuz he’s not called Slimer the Friendly Ghost. Matthew’s Casper from the Hood story reminded me of his Flinstones-as-post-apocalyptic-future theory. I told my room mate that theory and he wasn’t buying it until I mentioned that the line “a modern Stone-Age family” could be referring to a Modern (and thus second) Stone Age, not a modern family from the Stone Age.

    There is a spirit world in the tv show and only the avatar can access it.
