The bad news is that she keeps flying into buildings.
Big thumbs up. Very funny.
He a;ready got 2 up his bum
Fact: mohamed raped a 9 year old girl.
Uhhhh... was she your mom or something? how is that a retort to my comment?
Bud, take a moment to do a search on "Mohammed Aisha" and you'll have your answer. And the prior poster will have an apology from you.
I'm just sharing the truth about Islam for anyone who cares to read it. And mohamed did indeed rape Aisha when she was 9 years old. Now that's a leader we can all believe in!
Flying along in beautiful spacious skies when all the sudden....
BANG....stupid fruit colored planes....
POW.....where did that purple mountain come from?
CRASH...lucky I landed in some soft amber waves of grain.
I GOTTA stop flying with this stupid burqa on.
Yes! And blowing up! THen, respawning via the liberal media and working hard to create the utopia of ShariaObamallah...
(Its sad they're trying to morph a character just to be PC. When are they going to have a superhero who's Christian and views morality in a good light. I guess Constantine is as close as we get.)
1) If you read the article, they arent "morphing" anything. Carol Danvers - the Ms. Marvel in your picture - is now Captain Marvel. The new girl grew up as a fan of Carol Danvers and, when she discovered her powers, took the now-vacant name of Ms. Marvel.
2) See my other posts here about Nightcrawler. His strong Christian faith is a major component of his character. He's a good guy and even tries to get Wolverine interested.
Ah - I forgot about Nightcrawler. Nice one.
What I meant by morphing is this: (from the article)"who will take on the currently unused Ms. Marvel persona" ie take her real-estate in our entertainment field(Ms Marvel is airing next year according to the article.)
hmm...I suppose Captian Marvel will be a girl who can blow herself up multiple times without committing suicide?
Interesting, I just started reading some graphic novels and been looking for a female superhero, but something different...Watchmen like, with depth and characterization, and in graphic novel form. Recommend anything?
Depends on which buildings.
Hopefully it's Marvel and DC headquarters for their extreme liberal slant in the past several decades.
Bud-Um-Tsk...though to be fair, collateral damage is a common place thing for Superhero Universes. Heck, I wouldn't be surprised if the economies of all them big cities there RUN on hiring thousands of workers to fix things after every major skirmish.
You are so right....Marvel even had a series dealing with this:
I know. Good Ol' Dwayne McDuffie was good...before he grew senile, possibly agnostic or atheist, and ruined Ben 10: Alien Force and Ben 10: Ultimate Alien.
Ok....that's pretty funny. An upvote for you.
Religion was never an issue in most comic book superheroes. Can you tell me what religion Superman, Batman, Iron Man or the Hulk is? I don't know. So why now?
To politicize, plain and simple. How many comics have you seen infused with heroes who practice Christianity, and/or struggle with their faith? I can't think of any (and no, the depiction of an alter ego getting married in a church doesn't exactly count).
Well, Daredevil comes to mind when Frank Miller has the pen, generally speaking.
Nightcrawler. Hell, I just read the first issue of Amazing X-men (out today) and Nightcrawler is actually in Heaven right now. He mentions his faith several times in that issue alone.
I remember one time when Thor and Shazam faced off, for the fates of their respective (DC vs. Marvel) universes, and before they did, they actually kneeled down and PRAYED together.
It was a pretty cool moment. Check it out:
anything ending in 'man' is jewish.;)
Clark Kent was raised a Protestant, but I think they worshiped a sun god on Krypton.
As I said, I do not remember any particular religious faith being mentioned - especially as a background for a character - in any comic books of the superhero type.
Captain America was raised Irish Catholic.
I keep saying it, but Nightcrawler's Catholic faith is a central part of his character.
When did Nightcrawler debut?
I had to google to find out for sure, but he debuted in Giant-Size X-Men #1 in 1975.
He was killed in a major story-line a year or two ago and Wolverine had a really hard time with it. Nightcrawler's death is a big reason Wolverine has sworn off killing in the current comics.
Amazing X-Men #1 (new X-men title that just started) focuses on Nightcrawler being in Heaven but feeling that his work on Earth isn't done. The mini-series right now in that comic is called something like "The Quest for Nightcrawler" - which I assume means that somehow the current X-men are going to bring him back, which is good because he's a great character.
Ah, okay. So, the storyline you're referring to is a modern one.
I think since the Frank Miller & Alan Moore stuff from the mid-to-late '80s, we've seen this gradual shift to the more political and risque stuff that I'm talking about.
Oh, the "dead and in heaven" thing is pretty recent, but Nightcrawler's faith has been a major thing for his character since the beginning.
The X-men were pretty much created with what you could consider political ideas in mind. At the time they were a fairly obvious allusion to race and discrimination. Since their creation, they've stood for pretty much any group that is discriminated against.
Mister Terrific is an atheist - even though he knows Zauriel (an actual angel)... was always weird to me.
I, for one, would like to distinguish between merely mentioning or referencing religious faith (which was MUCH more common in society, once upon a time) to actually making it an issue.
Since most of American society was, and still is, some form of Christianity, it wasn't uncommon for fictional character to be seen attending church or mentioning God. That isn't the same thing as having a running commentary on religious belief.
I'm pretty sure Bat Woman had a lucky mood ring.
Well...sorta kinda. You see, on Krypton, they worshiped their Red Sun called, 'Rao' in a cross between the way Pagans would and the more rational/scientific way Christians and Jews would if it were Jehova himself.
I thought the Kryptonians worship science. I read that in a superman graphic novel where him and his dad died and have to fight together to live again. Other than that I stopped giving Marvel Comics my money when they pitted Captain America against the "racist" Tea Party. Somehow a Muslim Ms. Marvel doesn't surprise me anymore. Bummer that she'll get stoned if she wears the traditional swimsuit like costume.
There's actually an online database showing the religious affiliation of various comic book characters. It's something that does actually come up in the comics from time to time.
Your minutes of research and thought-out arguments have no place here!
Daredevil was raised Irish Catholic and that fact tends to come up a lot, especially when Frank Miller has the pen.
Duh. Superman is Christian. Batman is Jewish. Iron Man is Buddhist. And The Hulk is a Scientologist.
Actually, Batman comes from a presumably protestant and catholic household and is often portrayed as a lapsed Christian though sometimes he leans into agnosticism and atheism (despite ALL of the evidence of gods in his own Universe. Seriously! Wonder Woman, one of his CLOSEST FRIENDS AND ALLIES was LITERALLY MADE BY THE FRICKIN' GREEK GODS OUT OF CLAY ON THE ISLE OF THE AMAZONS! HOW CAN YOU POSSIBLY NOT BE RELIGIOUS IN A UNIVERSE LIKE THAT!? Eh. Maybe instead of being an atheist, he's more of a nay-theist).
I think Iron Man is Amish, but instead of a horse and buggy he just pulls the wagon himself. Clark Kent is a jewish guy in New York with Woody Allen glasses
What's the Hulk's thetan level?
IT'S OVER 9,000!
What?!! 9000?!!! There's no way that can be right!!!
Xenu hasn't got a prayer.
Thor was raised to worship himself. Ayn Rand would be so proud of Thor!
