  1. Is it possible Viz still has the rights to Guyver? Or would they need to re-license it just like they did with Fist of the North Star? I remember reading the Viz scans and the last one said something like: “Guyver is going on a hiatus. We’ll see you in the funny papers!” which was awkward especially since they never returned to it. I’ve tried to inquire to Viz about the manga and one time they answered. They said more or less they want to expand their library but it would take time. I tried again they re-licensed Fist of the North Star but they didn’t respond this time. I hope one day this manga will be in print in English again.

  2. Explanation? No. he can do whatever he wants with his life. But confirmation whether or not to continue hoping for more? Yes. We absolutely do deserve that.

  3. Hey Hello, welcome!! Well, based on my opinion, Guyver's are raw weapons in the hands of humans. Having one in Sho's hands is like giving a child a complex weapon he couldn't fully use. If you've read up to the latest chapters, you will know how deadly the Guyver units are in capable hands. Sho being defeated during that time frame was not due to the superiority of his opponents, but due to his lack of experience and ferocity. Self defense mode acts with swiftness and efficiency, so basically it can brutally murder any zoanoid it faces, in the presumption that we don't factor how cunning the opponent is. Otherwise, there is no way an automaton can defeat a thinking individual, much less a group of them.

  4. So, I've kinda been on a Digimon V-pet kick lately, and Bandai made an announcement regarding both Digimon and Kamen Rider.

  6. All I know is I made the mistake of watching this before bed the night of release and I couldn't fall asleep for 2 hours because I was so hyped... "Hello Peter." This is going to be so... amazing!

  7. That one line convinced me to watch this in itself. So hearing the william Dafoe goblin laugh... I didnt see electro in the trailer so Im hoping that means Tobey Mcguire and Andrew Garfield are also being kept secret. Tho i should point out that neither them or William Dafoe is listed under the cast for this movie. I do like how Peter's constant talking got them into this madness. I'm so stoked they are going the multiverse route. I loved the spiderverse/spidergeddon arcs and this is just gold to me.

  8. Jason Aaron is like an inverse King Midas: everything he touches turns to trash. The Eternals are typically depicted as about as powerful as normal Asgardians, although they also have superpowers. Thor and Odin are well above average, though, but that is because Odin is a Skyfather who was merged with his two brothers, and Thor's mother is an Elder God. The Elder Gods were the first beings created by the Demiurge, the sentient life force of Earth itself - ethereal titans of immense primal power. Almost all of them became corrupt and turned on each other, and were ultimately destroyed by Demogorge, the monstrous battle-form of Atum, the Sun God. After he had consumed all the corrupted gods, he expelled their raw god-stuff which blanketed the Earth until it was stirred into life again when the first thinking beings filled it with their dreams, hopes, aspirations, ideals and fears; then, from it were born the gods and devils we know. Marvel comics used to be pretty great.

  9. Well, in the comics, it's like this: about 800,000 years ago, the Earth was visited by giant cosmic gods that we call the Celestials. They took the ancestors of humanity - Homo erectus, at the time - and transformed some of them through genetic engineering. The first group, however, turned out to be genetically unstable, so that each individual was unique, and over time cullings were deemed necessary to dispose of those who were too monstrous. They ended up living in vast cities underground. These beings are known as the Deviants. The second group were pretty much perfect. They were beautiful, intelligent and gifted, and the Celestials made them part of the 'system', that is to say, the Earth, so that the would be immortal; even if they did die, they would be reformed almost instantly in 'the machine'. These beings would serve the Celestials and guard the planet. They went to live on mountaintops and high plateaus. They were known as the Eternals. The third group was seemingly unchanged. They continued to evolve naturally until they had become Homo sapiens, and are known as Humans. However, the Celestials had in fact made changes to the effect that humans can develop super-powers. This is why super-powered people exist at all. This has been Marvel canon for some time now. The mystery was the why of all of this. The maxi-series 'Earth X' tried to explain it: the Celestials reproduce by implanting an embryo of their own kind inside a planet and letting it develop for millions of years as it feeds on the planet's life force. In order to protect the embryo, the Celestials empower the local population to defend it, like a planetary immune system against alien invaders and natural disasters. Earth is one of the few planets that has managed to deflect even Galactus, the Devourer of Worlds; in 'Earth X' it is stated he does not so much feed on planets , or the life force of planets, as he hunts down and consumes developing Celestial embryos. The movie will likely go its own way, though.

  11. I meant that Marvel has now become self-referential. I liked him as a villain, even if I did not like the way he looked.

  13. Miura passing was a real gut punch to me. "He died doing what he wanted no matter what right? I bet he was happy." Rest In Peace.
