ITT: share /co/ related material with other anons - cartoons, comics, etc. READ ME BEFORE ASKING FOR ANYTHING Due to the smaller userbase of comics compared to films and video games, torrents are usually less seeded, if they even exist.

Offical /co/ Homecoming Thread Frank Board owner 04/26/2020 (Sun) 01:57:49 No. 18 [Reply] [Last]
Welcome Aboard If you're reading this now you've just survived the latest exodus in 8chan's ridiculous history. I'll be your Board Owner, if you haven't been following along I recently took over /co/ since the great Cripplegeddon. When 8ch came back as 8kun the previous guys were nowhere to be found so I took it upon myself to answer the call and moderate. Before moving here, I spent the time cleaning up /co/ and taking suggestions over how the board was run. If you're somehow someone that didn't know 8chan returned temporarily as a boomer zombie and only just came back; Believe me these people exist and I don't blame them then you haven't missed much other than the BO change. For more in depth details I recommend reading the archived meta threads below or any of the archived threads in the provided pastebin. But I'd be more than happy to answer whatever questions you have. >So what's the gameplan? Currently I plan on moving over some storytimes from 8kun to here, to help fill up the board and to avoid losing any of them if the pig farmer decides to pull the plug. Beyond that I'm still thinking of ways of how to grow /co/. If you have any suggestions don't be afraid to say them. >Why here and not one of the webring boards? Name recognition and user overlap. Lets be honest the comics industry is dead and western animation isn't any better, so a lot of interest has been lost. Boards like /v/, /delicious/, /tg/ and /m/ are the only Anons with any remote interest in anything /co/ related and most of the bunkers they're staying at are either dead, have little user overlap, are unwilling to host /co/ or just filled to the brim with autism. Fatchan looked nice but the software was too new/buggy, too few people and I rather gamble my chance on 8chan's name bringing people back than some bunker that has no real pull. >What of 8kun? I'll still "maintain" it just to make sure people find their way here. But once the administration finds out I'm sure to lose the board.

If anyone is wondering where the other He-Man thread went, I tried out the "merge thread" feature and it seemed to work.

A new He-Man cartoon is in the works. Not the Kevin Smith one but one made for children rather than by a man child. Thankfully this more than likely won't be another mess like She-ra. This is obviously a much more toyetic design philosophy going on. So they're actually trying to market it to boys.

>>14291 The problem with the movie is the problem we have with some other live-action other-worldly properties like that: some fuckwit director/studio exec wants it all to take place on Earth (or Earthlike planet) to save money on sets or because he just doesn't have the imagination. Transformers is a good example. Sonic the Hedgehog is the most recent property I can think of where they did that, but there are probably others announced since then.
>>14294 Transformers did largely take place on Earth in most of its classic stories, though. While there are a lot of great Transformers stories that take place in other times or places, present-day Earth is their most "classic" setting. Beast Wars is better than G1 anyway, but we'll never see that get a movie. Which I guess is a blessing, with how movies are now. Sonic just pisses me off because they could have just done what the games did and skip the alternate dimension shit, which only makes it so they can't adapt stories from the games without heavy alterations, and also resulted in them vastly changing Sonic's character, so now instead of a carefree cool guy he's actually lonely because he's lived in total isolation for years since he came from the other dimension. Would it have been so hard to just let it be a Roger Rabbit type world where some people happen to be cartoons? Or worst case scenario, just say all the animal characters are from magic islands that humans never encountered before (and later you can say they did but secretly, which is what happens in the games anyway). Still slightly different from the games, but not so much that you'd need to change large parts of the story. A Sonic movie could have taken place in a city and not been retarded. Sonic Adventure 2 basically takes place in San Francisco anyway.
>>14297 >Beast Wars is better than G1 anyway, but we'll never see that get a movie. Ahahahahaahahahah! Guess what was announced today, anon?!

The Taito Superman arcade game from 1988 has this woman as an unused graphic. Is she an existing DC character?
7 posts omitted.
>>14270 The original Batman retired in DC Super-Stars 17, from 1977, and died in Adventure Comics #462, in 1979. He never came back to life or anything, though according to the wiki he did once appear as a spirit in JSA #82 in 2006. To be clear, the current Batman is not the original, but a multiversal doppelganger of the original, and technically his first appearance is considered to be in Superman #76, from 1952, which is said to be the first time Superman and Batman teamed up, which means they were never in the Justice Society, which means this must be a different Batman (and Superman) than the original versions, which were in the Justice Society. Also note that this second Batman's history from before Superman #76 is considered to be very similar to the original Batman's history up to that point, just without particular differences, such as the aforementioned Justice Society thing, and the fact that the original Batman (and his whole universe) seemed to move more in real time, while the second (current) Batman operates on a sliding timescale, so he ages much more slowly and is much younger than the original. While I'm at it, I should also note that that second Batman I mentioned, though technically the current one, has had aspects of his history altered a few times, most notably after the Crisis on Infinite Earths. However, he is still technically the same guy, but history changed around him. Batman has generally had his history changed less than other major characters, though. Also, while the original Batman was from Earth-Two, and there is another universe called Earth-2 and later Earth 2, that is technically a different universe entirely, created by Alexander Luthor, Jr. in 2006. Earth-2 had a history very close to Earth-Two, and its Batman was already dead, but the point is that it still wasn't actually the same as Earth-Two. After the Flashpoint, Earth-2 had its history drastically changed, and the Post-Flashpoint universes drop the hyphen to make it slightly easier to identify them, so from there, we'll call it Earth 2. Earth 2's history was drastically different from Earth-Two, but did feature doppelgangers of people who were well known for being from Earth-Two. Still, it was technically not the same universe, and also was really different anyway. Also, in 2015 Brainiac of Earth-0, who had escaped the Flashpoint and then absorbed Crisis Energy and became super powerful, went throughout time and grabbed cities from various notable moments throughout the multiverse, such as the moment before a universe got destroyed, and brought them to the present. Then he turned all these cities back into whole universes, including Earth-Two right before it was destroyed in 1986. Then he sent a few characters back in time to make sure that places that were about to be destroyed won't be destroyed anymore. So technically there is a splinter timeline/universe of Earth-Two that currently exists (though note that it's outside the "local multiverse" so it's harder to reach from the main universe), however, this is still just an alternate timeline/universe that splintered off of the real Earth-Two, which was still folded on top of Earth-One to become New Earth in 1986. Also, Batman of Earth-Two was dead well before 1986 anyway, so the Batman of the new Earth-Two is also dead. With Batman out of the way, I'll also mention that the original Superman retired in 1986 and died in 2006. He briefly came back to life as a zombie in Blackest Night in 2009, but so did everyone else who ever died. The original Wonder Woman also retired in 1986 and then left reality in 2006. All my explanation for why the current versions and the Earth 2 versions and New Earth-Two versions aren't the originals still applies here. I mention those three because they're among the most famous characters ever. Of course, it applies to many others as well. The more obscure, the less likely it is that they'll get brought back to life. There are plenty of Justice Society characters who died and stayed dead. The first two Blue Beetles (Dan Garret and Dan Garrett) died and stayed dead, and while the third one (Ted Kord) currently has some sort of Post-Flashpoint rebooted version running around, note that the pre-Flashpoint version's story ended completely, and the pre-Flashpoint version of his best friend, Booster Gold, is still around (as the current Waverider), as a distinct character from the Post-Flashpoint Booster Gold, so for Booster and characters close to him, especially those who were heavily altered, like Ted Kord, they really are completely separate characters. A similar case is with the original Supergirl. Kara Zor-El died in 1986. History was then altered so that she "never existed," but really she did, but people didn't remember her. A new Supergirl, Matrix, debuted in 1988, but while she is called Supergirl, she has an entirely different story. She is not the same character. Later, Kara's ghost would appear a few times, and they would say there was some fucked up multiverse shit that was preventing her from being rebooted into the new history, but they solved it, and then she was rebooted into the new history. So technically the Kara Zor-El of New Earth is the same soul as the Kara Zor-El of Earth-One, but they have entirely separate, though similar, stories. Kara of Earth-One's story completely ended and then Kara of New Earth's story began. She would then be fully rebooted again after Flashpoint. Technically the same person, but really, it's a completely new story, that begins from the beginning and counts no elements from the old version as canon (though many current elements are shared with the old version). >tl;dr: Lots of characters died for real and stayed dead. The simplest examples are the original Batman and Superman. Go read those if you want.
>>14253 >harbinger That's it! I don't think it's her, but, minus the red helmet, that's who she's reminding me of. Thanks, anon.
>>14295 The thing over her right breast sort of evokes the shape of Harbinger's costume, not to mention the general color scheme, but those weird things on her arms look more like Lady Quark, also from the Crisis on Infinite Earths. Of course the rest of her doesn't look similar at all.

They did a later volume also called Ultimate Spider-Man, but it was a new story with a new protagonist that took place after the ending of the previous story. You're not getting this. That's still a continuation of the universe. >They do. You just ignore the endings because you don't like the idea that other stories happen in the same universe, yet you also completely ignore the stories that don't happen in shared universes. No they don't. A run ending is not an actual ending of the character. The universe and that character still keeps going. Alt universes continuously pop up in the mainline stories all the fucking time. There is no ending in american big two capeshit till the companies themselves go bankrupt. Guilt by association. Plain and simple. Terminator 1 & 2 are good movies. Doesn't mean the franchise is good because all the sequels still happened. They exist. Arguments of what is officially canon aside.
>>14257 >spider man 801 but thats been out for years, didnt that come out in 2018?
>>14283 And the sequels also don't mean that Terminator 1 & 2 are bad movies. Also, there are tons of alt universes that never cross over with the main ones. And again, even if they do, I don't care. Superman: Red Son probably has a bunch of cameos in things like Final Crisis or whatever, but they don't affect the quality of Red Son itself. Dan Slott can do all sorts of gay shit, but it doesn't retroactively make John Romita Sr.'s Spider-Man stories gay as well.

In this next installment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Loki becomes an emasculated joke himself, the Time Variance Authority are strict, authoritarian (and diverse) time lords that are weak against fire, and those magical stones are nothing more than paperweights to the TVA. The entire MCU was all according to plan thanks to some space lizards called the Time-Keepers, including Thanos commiting immense genocide and allowing the Avengers to mess with time travel, and yet Loki stealing the magic cube is an absolute violation - no free will until Loki showed up. A whole slew of contradictions, inconveniences, and retconning in just the first episode!

As much as I would have liked a non-woke, non-retarded version of Capaldi's Doctor, they managed to fucking destroy the female fanbase that only tuned in to lust after Tennant and Smith's hot upper crust adventurers. Making the Doctor a bitchy cunt that other women tend to hate just made things worse. The only appeal to Loki is Hiddleston. Men want to be him and women want to engulf his entire body with their vaginas. Making him a snotty (and worse, UGLY) chick is the death of all of it.

>>14025 >>14028 >>14035 >>14047 >Isn't that because NONE of the current crop of toys actually appeal to boys? It goes both ways; you see in the 90's, Mattel and Hasbro, the big two of the toy industry, started to buy all their competitors (Kenner, Galoob, Tyco, etc). Yet, there were still action cartoons and worthwhile competitors such as Playmates (TMNT), Bandai (of America) (Power Rangers) and Toybiz (Marvel). I believe the turning point started in 2011, the beginning of the dark age; Toybiz was already dead as a result of Hasbro getting the Marvel license, so the only few left were Playmates (TMNT) and Bandai (Thundercats, Ben 10), but then CN canceled Thundercats despite the high ratings and good toy sales, same with *Teen Titans. Afterwards, just two years later, Young Justice got canceled due to poor toy sales blaming that it was more popular with the girls, ignoring the fact that Mattel' toys were complete dogshit. CN decided they want cheap comedy shows that have no chronological order and can easily rerun, and Hasbro and Mattel gave up on making good toys for kids and instead churn out cheap crap for them while lazily pandering to adult collectors. To concluded, the combination of cheapness and laziness both by toy and media companies led to the death of action cartoon and action figures, conveniently blaming video games and any other scapegoat they can find besides their own incompetence. >I remember hearing how they canned Teen Titans because too many girls were watching it and toy sales were not turning a profit *Checking the wiki article, it doesn't seem to be the case as it was with Young Justice, but it is in a way also as Mattel fuckery was likely involved again; apparently Mattel got master toy licensee for CN at that time and didn't like sharing it with Bandai. The sole reason fashion dolls are still good and hence girls still buy toys unlike boys is because Mattel didn't buy MGA (the company behind Bratz) and oh boy they did try to kill them too by using bullshit lawsuit calming Bratz belong to them because the creator of it developed it during his time working at Mattel. BTW MGA was the only toy company that tried to save TRU in USA. >Fortnite Yo can shit on the game all you want, but it has great toyetic designs and gave renaissance to the action figure market including playline. Heck, it even revived the 3.75" scale from the dead. The 6" Jazwares Fortnite was made by former Toybiz workers, they came with load of stuff and had greater amount of articulation then Marvel Legends and yet they cost the same price! Now the assholes at Hasbro took away the 6" and above license from McFarlane and Jazwares, and the figures will cost 23$ instead of 20$ despite not being bigger (McFarlane line was 7") and having less articulation (no jointed fingers, no toe hinge) and far less accessories (just three vs six-seven) driving away the original kids target audience as they usually do, because God forbidden kids will have good toys too! >than anything on tv Kids still watch cartoons, just not on cable tv.
>>14103 If CN had any brains working for them, they would have had Mezco or NECCA make their action figures. Then offered to do commercials for the other top collector brands. Such as MAFEX and S.H. Figuarts. Fuck Mattel and TTG. Posable NECCA Ben Ten figures would have broken their bank alone.

>>14107 >If CN had any brains working for them, they would have had Mezco or NECCA make their action figures No, CN is a channel for kids and again the reason they now gear towards girls and toddlers is because those groups still buy toys. As for adult collector toys based on their older franchises, they should let multitype of companies get the license like how ATLA got three different companies making action figures which is quite amazing. >Mezco Half-assed action dolls aren't my cup of tea and they completely screwed up that Darkseid. >NECA Questionable durability. >MAFEX and S.H. Figuarts I like them more. MAFEX does suffer from QC issues sadly, although their stylized/cartoon figures are pretty much spot on. S.H. Figuarts cost less and they're more experimental and innovative with their articulation, but that's only true for 3DPD and male characters from Dragon Ball. Soul of Chokogin of Dexter's Lab, PPG and MLAATR I know it's from Nickelodeon would be perfect, but probably never ever. >Ben Ten
