How the gently caress are pirated comics able to be read more conveniently than ones that actually see the creators getting paid?

They scan them from the actual books.

No, he's just himself.

Cool. I DVRed the episode because there was a hockey game on, but it's nice to hear they're not slowing down the momentum.

No they are just sick and loving tired of it and extra pissed that Bendis changed the rules because by the old ones the original 5 could actually die or even change as it stands now they are blatantly immortal and immutable in that annoying "wink, wink all comic-book character are" way.

They can still die. When you've already changed the rules you can make them whatever you want.

"Young Cyclops died but our Cyclops is still alive! How is that possible?"

I think calling the digital distribution age Diamond is pretty funny.

Cap recommends it earlier in the issue, I think.

Or maybe that's in Avengers Assemble. He recommends it somewhere, anyway.

It stands for "augmented reality". I gather that you can do something with the digital versions of the comics where you get extra pages that aren't in the printed books.

No, they're for the print versions. You scan them with a phone or tablet or whatever.

You can also scan your tablet with another tablet I guess but make sure nobody is looking.


I read that Marvel's own app lets you just activate the AR on the device itself though.

Okay, fine, but if you limit it to each column, it is still saying you could read, say, War of Kings #3-6 followed by War of Kings #1-2 because the word "may" implies an option. It's just a minor personal annoyance and I get what it's trying to say and no one is actually going to do that.

You can. You shouldn't, but the JPEG cannot stop you.

X-Men Schism, AvX, AvX Consequences, All-New X-Men + Uncanny X-Men NOW! (incl. other Battle of the Atom chapters + Trial of Jean Grey chapters from Guardians of the Galaxy), then "Cyclops" should do ya for both versions.
I guess Uncanny during AvX would have stuff, but I didn't bother.

Keep in mind that nearly all of that is bad.

Many of the descriptions are out of date now.

In New Avengers they have moved on to fighting the Justice League, while in Avengers it's Even More Time Travel Shenanigans.

Thanks, but could you elaborate at all?

They basically look up 616 Miles and everyone says "Oh no!" and then the LOST title card comes down.

(The Spider-Men follow-up is supposed to elaborate.)

That looks like Ultimate Miles, not 616 Miles (not that we've seen him, but he's not Spider-Man.)

Can Wolverine swim?

He's too heavy and very afraid of bodies of water because drowning is basically eternal torture for him.

Aphrodite
Jun 27, 2006



He did actually kill Daken by drowning so I guess it does overpower his healing factor. Depending on how powerful his healing factor is that week, anyway.

zoux posted:

Well he drowned Daken to death, and he had the same healing factor. I just wondered if he was physically capable of swimming because of his metal skeleton.

Yes and no.

Yes in that it has been outright stated he's too heavy.

No in that it has been outright stated he's not much heavier since it's just a coating.

Cineplex/Famous Players, the dominant chain here, has a loyalty card that gives you a free movie every 1000 points. No matter what type, so I always save it for like 3D IMAX or something.
