What's the over/under on Lady-Yondu doing a Face-Turn?

The only face thing she's doing is when May puts it through the floor.

I mean, yeah, she'll probably either lose to May to show how much May has recovered OR attack Kasius out of spite.

That said, I kinda ant to get her backstory and have her be a member of the team.

Well well, mister fancy-pants, I hope you're wearing your matching sweater today, or you'll be cut down like the ugly tree you are.

Oh yeah, that reminds me: has it ever actually been established that Icers work on Kree, or any other alien for that matter? I thought they were developed to be used on, you know, humans.

I think he did that to avoid Kree retaliating by genociding the remaining humans. Even if they undo it all by going back to the present, it's not something you want on your conscience.

Fitz's conscience is probably carrying about enough at this point, yeah.

Also, Iron Fist is way better if you consider it to be called "Colleen Wing and her goofy Mystic Kung-Fu Boyfriend"

They can already use Skrulls.

Right, but I thought they couldn't use any named Skrulls, as weird as that is. No Skrull Queen, K'lrt, or Xavin.

Yeah, that was the deal. Skrulls were OK, Super Skrulls were not as they were part of the Fantastic Four.

Butt first, let's
check the feeds.


But is Xavin a FF property? He/she debuted in Runaways so I'd assume she'd be Marvel property. I assume the issue is characters who debuted in Fantastic Four.



Also I don't want to keep the Iron Fist thing going but I'll just say I do basically agree with the criticisms of Danny, I just think it was a bunch of misfires and I think they were going for more of a naive but well meaning fool. But they clearly screwed up a lot which is one of the big flaws with the series.

And yes, Colleen and maybe even Joy and Ward are just better center pieces for the series. And Danny was a lot better in Defenders when he was just the little brother everyone clowned on and rolled their eyes at and occasionally browbeat for being ignorant.

Danny literally had one job in Defenders. He didn't even have to do anything, his job was just to not do this one thing. Guess what he loving does? It's okay to have a character be stupid and totally out of their element for a few episodes so they have room to grow and improve, but Danny is just as stupid and naive and worthless at the end of Defenders as when he started. gently caress him. There's a reason the Netflix thread has the title that it has.

The rights were all over the place. I mean, the Inhumans debuted in FF but were Marvel's. Kang first appeared in Avengers but was with the FF.

That was from The Defenders. In Iron Fist, the quote is "You are the WORST Iron Fist", and it said by his supposedly best friend.

Point is Danny's clearly supposed to be a punching bag you want to strangle. They just hosed up the sliders.

That and its a pretty questionable idea to make your protagonist someone everyone wants to punch.

He's a self absorbed spoiled rich kid who the show treats like he's loving Caine from Kung Fu.

He literally never stops making stupid decisions. He even gets the mystical city which trained him wiped out purely through the power of his own stupidity, which is almost impressive.

The gate is closed. We don't know that K'un Lun is wiped out, only that Danny is still an idiot.

Danny's character growth, including being a dick to the bum trying to help him out because he's still mentally a rich tool in his teens is not quick enough for some people, similar to how the first season of AoS didn't move quickly/well enough for them.

There are other factors (like the stuntwork) that don't help either, but making Danny some kind of White Savior Buddha from the get-go isn't what that show is going for. The Defenders dunk on him for good reason, and as long as this trend of slow but upwards growth continues, I'll continue to watch it.

What upward growth? The dumbest thing he's done so far he did at the very end of Defenders. He's just as stupid now as he ever was.
