Does not belong.

I just don't get dubstep .. as far as I'm concerned it's just annoying random noise designed to give people a headache. Give me 80s music any day!

*plays Toto - Africa*
I don't think being a Tank or Healer has anything to do with wanting to go into a raid blind or not, personally when I DPS I feel like I have more to worry about then on the rare occasion
when I raid Tank.

But whatevers, I'm done with the video argument, I said my piece. I think they're a good tool regardless of your role or level of play.

It's just.. so hard to care about any of the DC characters (besides Batman lol).


I like DC quite a bit more then I like Marvel. I mean I love Thor and the Avengers and Spider Man, the old animated series not the movie Spider Man, too pieces but I enjoy DC more.

In fact I enjoy the DC animated movie lines more then most of the Marvel live action movies.

If DC could pull it together and do what Marvel has managed it could be amazing, but instead we keep getting terrible things like the GL movie or the Batman who really needs a damn cough drop.

I feel about the same way about 80s music :P

DC generally does better than Marvel in the animated department. Although most of the fare directly aimed at comic book fans, like Allstar Superman, tend to be incredibly disappointing.

I haven't thought about that band in years.

...Now I feel old. >_<

GL movie was bad cause of the crappy CGI, story was pretty bad too

Allstar Superman was good though -_-

his superpower is that he talks to fish and has a harpoon as a hand.


Super strength, speed (yes its a little faster in water but still quick on land), reflexes. Could use magic though not sure if thats true anymore with the new 52.
I finally caught Theck logged out in his tanking gear, and I must say, god damn. 800k hp, though he's got more guardian gems than solid gems.

But he uses the capacitive meta.. which seems really odd.

Having watched it recently (but not read the comic), I enjoyed it, but it did feel pretty disjointed - there were a lot of subplots that were too quickly introduced and then resolved. If I had read the original issues in which those plots had some time to develop, they probably would have made more sense, but without that context, it was just "hey look, it's two other Kryptonians who also survived and now they're on Earth and are jerks, oh no how will Superman deal with them, nevermind they got sick and now they've apologized and they're in the Phantom Zone, on to the next scene!"

It could've been improved by trimming out some of the subplots, IMO.

Please tell me they still managed to use the giant cellophane "S" of uselessness!

Meh, I like music that gets my blood pumping. 80s music is mostly either dull or unintentionally funny.

It started off strong, but about halfway through just felt like it was check-listing things off for the sake of it. And the ending just fell flat in comparison to the tone of the rest of the movie.

Great for the spirit of the comic books supes. He's a great vessel for fantasy projection. The ultimate paragon. But, as a character, he's just incredibly unengaging.
He's using the DPS meta while going balls-to-the-wall stam, instead of haste; instead of truly focusing on tank DPS and going full haste.
Because it's the only thing he's going toward dps for, it seems really incongruous when looking at the rest of his gear.
Perhaps the value of the Tanking Meta doesn't stack up well?

I really haven't looked into anything regarding it since I'll never be using it cause they don't work in Challenge Modes.

So many different schools of thought on Tanking these days that it hardly matters.
I suspect it's a question of opportunity cost - the Capacitive meta is a significant amount of DPS, especially with Vengeance-fueled attack power levels, and this is enough to outweigh the benefits of a tank meta. But regular haste gems provide a less favorable ratio in trading stamina for DPS.

Or in other words, he's thinking in terms of stat weights, rather than priority rankings. Whether that's actually wise given his raiding situation, I have no idea. But that would be my guess at the justification.
Oh Light, they're making a 300 sequel.

Of all the movies that never needed a sequel, ugh. It was a perfect standalone.
How do you sequel things where the main characters die!
