      How I would bring the Punisher into the Marvel Cinematic Universe!

      First off, he's too extreme to be the main character in his first outing in the MCU. With that in mind I think the most obvious place to start him off in would be the second season of Daredevil. The first season is building to the Defenders. Which will be a lot of fun. But much like Phase 2 the second season doesn't have to necessarily build up to the Defenders Season 2.

      With that in mind season 2 of Daredevil could be, in my mind at least, a lot like a comic booky 'The Wire.' It's Hells Kitchen with all its history of Irish gangs all fighting for control while Matt and company are (to continue in the vein of The Wire) the cops. And, of course, the upsetter to everything, the Omar Little to the season, is Frank Castle.

      Frank is dynamite upsetting Matt, the Irish gangs, the police, the news (come on we have to have Ben Urich), and the city. He's crazy. He's suicidal. And as Daredevil and Punisher take out the street gangs separately they also get closer and closer to having to fight one another. Until, finally, it reaches its tipping point and the two men battle like giants.

      In the end Frank likely gets arrested. His methods were too extreme and it's the Daredevil show. Matt kinda needs to win.

      But then it could set up Frank's own movie. A movie with a smaller budget than most Marvel movies (they don't all have to be 500 million dollar movies). One primary based on the Mother Russia arc. Where a disgraced Nick Fury gets Punisher out of jail with the promise of giving him access to military and police networks to continue his war on crime... all Frank has to do is a suicide mission into Siberia to steal a weaponized retrovirus before it falls into the wrong hands... namely everyone including Nick Fury.

      And yeah, that's an actual plot description of the Mother Russia arc in the comics. Don't fix what isn't broken. That's fucking epic and it's a great arc.

      A few minor tweaks, some updating, and a few connections to the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Mother Russia works as a stand alone Punisher film. And Nick's involvement in the arc in the comic also works well for the MCU since in that story he wasn't the head of SHIELD anymore and was hoping to maneuver this whole thing to his advantage and become director of SHIELD again. I mean, it fits so well with the MCU right now!

      Anyway, gotta go to work. Wish I was in a position to really pitch all this to Marvel. Wish I could help write it!

    • Ramblings About Space Operas

      4 years ago

      Foolsfolly

      There are certain tropes for any genre that tend to be used more than they seemingly should. Like the Crazy Redneck in zombie films. One day someone will make a zombie movie set in Antarctica and you better believe there'd be a psychic trucker's hat wearing redneck shouting, "A country boy can survive!" and killing people because he's.... just insane?

      But for the purposes of this ramble I'm going to focus on two things that get reused a lot in Space Operas. And after spending a little time on them I'm going to move on and show you that they're really the same thing.

      1- Ancient Forgotten Civilizations. You know Those Who Came Before, Forerunners, Protheans, whatever you call them. They're the guys who once had everything and then disappeared, were killed, transcended, whatever. These guys show up all the damn time all over the Space Opera genre.

      They're not as common in general sci-if but the moment shit gets big intergalactic wars and all... one of these guys will show up. Surprisingly, there was no example of these guys in the original Star Wars movies. The now dead EU had a dozen of them the most prominent being the True Sith. The closest the original movies got was the defunct Jedi Order. They were ancient and peace keepers and now they're gone. So much so that an Imperial officer can scoff at Vader to his face. It's like there's no recordings the galaxy far, far away. No one knows about the Force anymore?

      2- Massive Completely Unbelievable Interstellar Empires.

      Do you know expensive it would be to occupy solar systems? Like it's completely impossible. Yet giant interstellar tyrants show up all the damn time. And why not? You need a good enemy for your plucky heroes to go up against. Who cares that if for some reason one guy could actually control and enforce dozens of star systems. You're action guy and those other guys are your friends! You can't be stopped by the largest military force in any universe.

      So what do those two things often found in Space Operas have in common?

      They all tie back into a central theme for space operas. Scale.

      Imagine the biggest thing you can.

      The universe is beyond bigger.

      And if there are multiple universes; then the multiverse is larger still.

      And if there's a multiverse then it's easy to assume that there's something even larger than the multiverse.

      But stories in space can't ever properly showcase the size of space. We jump through hyperspace so we can travel faster than light but not so far in time. That way we can keep meeting people we know! Or that people can travel from one planet to another without a few generations passing on board the ship.

      In text scale is hard to achieve. In movies they showcase space's scale by empty blots of sky or colorful swirling cosmos. Either attempt to showcase the scale falls short. Emptiness is just black. Swirling colors are just someone's desktop.

      So size of the universe is hard to grasp and just as hard to proper show in a working narrative.

      But you can allude to scale by having long, ancient races who've left behind treasure troves of data, art, or weapons. There existence showcases how temporary we are and how infinite time is. Or a giant Empire/Dominion/Federation of dozens or hundreds of star systems which our heroes must face. That's self exclamatory isn't it? But for the sake of thoroughness. These Evil Empires vast powers and might make our heroes seem all the smaller in comparison. Just like how earth isn't a small marble in the dark... it's not even a grain of sand compared to the universe's size.

      So I believe that these tropes exist and are so widely used entirely because they feed into a theme about space that's hard to literally convey. And that's why I don't think these things will ever go away.

      Like I said at the opening, this is a ramble not a thesis. Just some thoughts I had while I was on RvB.

      Thanks for Reading.

    • Portrait of an ISTP

      5 years ago

      Foolsfolly

      A while ago I took a Myers-Briggs personality test. My results were that I was an ISTP. The test gave little information on what that meant but then I found a website that offered help.

      This is what that site had to say:

      As an ISTP, your primary mode of living is focused internally, where you deal with things rationally and logically. Your secondary mode is external, where you take things in via your five senses in a literal, concrete fashion.

      ISTPs have a compelling drive to understand the way things work. They're good at logical analysis, and like to use it on practical concerns. They typically have strong powers of reasoning, although they're not interested in theories or concepts unless they can see a practical application. They like to take things apart and see the way they work.

      ISTPs have an adventuresome spirit. They are attracted to motorcycles, airplanes, sky diving, surfing, etc. They thrive on action, and are usually fearless. ISTPs are fiercely independent, needing to have the space to make their own decisions about their next step. They do not believe in or follow rules and regulations, as this would prohibit their ability to "do their own thing". Their sense of adventure and desire for constant action makes ISTPs prone to becoming bored rather quickly.

      ISTPs are loyal to their causes and beliefs, and are firm believers that people should be treated with equity and fairness. Although they do not respect the rules of the "System", they follow their own rules and guidelines for behavior faithfully. They will not take part in something which violates their personal laws. ISTPs are extremely loyal and faithful to their "brothers".

      ISTPs like and need to spend time alone, because this is when they can sort things out in their minds most clearly. They absorb large quantities of impersonal facts from the external world, and sort through those facts, making judgments, when they are alone.

      ISTPs are action-oriented people. They like to be up and about, doing things. They are not people to sit behind a desk all day and do long-range planning. Adaptable and spontaneous, they respond to what is immediately before them. They usually have strong technical skills, and can be effective technical leaders. They focus on details and practical things. They have an excellent sense of expediency and grasp of the details which enables them to make quick, effective decisions.

      ISTPs avoid making judgments based on personal values - they feel that judgments and decisions should be made impartially, based on the fact. They are not naturally tuned in to how they are affecting others. They do not pay attention to their own feelings, and even distrust them and try to ignore them, because they have difficulty distinguishing between emotional reactions and value judgments. This may be a problem area for many ISTPs.

      An ISTP who is over-stressed may exhibit rash emotional outbursts of anger, or on the other extreme may be overwhelmed by emotions and feelings which they feel compelled to share with people (often inappropriately). An ISTP who is down on themself will foray into the world of value judgments - a place which is not natural for the ISTP - and judge themself by their inability to perform some task. They will then approach the task in a grim emotional state, expecting the worst.

      ISTPs are excellent in a crisis situations. They're usually good athletes, and have very good hand-eye coordination. They are good at following through with a project, and tying up loose ends. They usually don't have much trouble with school, because they are introverts who can think logically. They are usually patient individuals, although they may be prone to occasional emotional outbursts due to their inattention to their own feelings.

      ISTPs have a lot of natural ability which makes them good at many different kinds of things. However, they are happiest when they are centered in action-oriented tasks which require detailed logical analysis and technical skill. They take pride in their ability to take the next correct step.

      ISTPs are optimistic, full of good cheer, loyal to their equals, uncomplicated in their desires, generous, trusting and receptive people who want no part in confining commitments.


      There's actually more there and I've posted some of it on Facebook before. But I keep thinking about this test. I've had family and friends take it. And the results have been pretty on the nose. Some of it's generic enough so that's not surprising but other bits work.

      The skeptic in me still says bullshit on some of this. After all, you can say many things about any specific person and those things can still be true for a majority of people.

      But as far as these kinds of tests go... this one's not bad.

It is the internal struggles, when fought and won on their own, that yield the strongest rewards. You stole that struggle from them, cheapened it. If you care for others, then dispense with pity and sacrifice and recognize the value in letting them fight their own battles"

      That's all I can think of right now.

        Raheem's sleepin' right now. He'll be back soon enough.

        If you want to write your own Raheem Savage story then you have my blessing. It was fun to see how Puma thought the guy worked. So I can promise I'll read it. Maybe not as quickly as I'd like. Weird hours at the House of Mouse.

      So Data got me hooked on The Dresden Files; I started reading them six months ago and finished all the currently released ones. I'm currently rereading. A thought that keeps going through my head is "Fools would LOVE this series."

        I need something fist pumping inspiring. Something that'll make me cheer and feel great.

        Movies have been letting me down in that regard. I loved Cap 2... mostly on an academic level. It did so much right that I have to love it. But I didn't enjoy it as much as I wanted... same with Days of Future Past.

        And I know it isn't the films' fault. It's because I'm in this general malaise that I can't shake off.

      6 years ago

      So I found a writer who's a friend of friends. He's an ongoing story about traveling to Aethermaius and meeting concepts.
      It's interesting and I chanced upon his work when I read that he wished he had a "Writers pit" to exchange ideas with. Unfortunately I find myself unsure of how to make introductions. Besides an interest in scratching symbols onto objects, with the result of people deciphering the meaning of said characters and understanding the idea that was intended to be elucidated. Him and I are both writing about the physical manifestation of platonic ideals.

      I suppose I could introduce myself by saying "hey I found the idea, name, and description of Aethermaius to be something I wished I had wrote" but without knowing my own writing I'm unsure if that would come across with the intended multiple meanings of praise, envy, and some small level of hostility.

      I could link my own work, but it is at a concentrated level at the moment. And I usually follow the rule of reading and making comments to other writers until such a time that they should request to see my adjective stuffed ramblings.Yet, it would be better to say in some form that I am currently writing about a villain attempting a malicious reflection of Nietzsche/Plato. "trying to reach an ideal state of self, striping away the shadows through metaphysical atrocities so that he can kill ideals incarnate.

      Also that I have a small writers pit but most if not all of them are serendipitously fallen silent over the past few months, what with Christmas, job searches and some news of matrimonial planning. So I now find myself in a void of brainstorming.

      But how best to make introductions... smiley3.gif

      Well, yes... I suppose I can send this.
      Shut up logic! smiley5.gif
      I thought I killed you last March. smiley6.gif

        You are very particular man with a very particular voice.

        I'm tempted to leave it there and see how you'd react but I'm not that tempted.

        Where to begin.

        Perhaps where you began:

        "hey I found the idea, name, and description of Aethermaius to be something I wished I had wrote


        Aethermaius is a word I came up with after about a week of searching for my word for some magical realm. For a while it something very similar to the word Aethermaius but lacked the -maius which for some reason makes the word... well work in my opinion.

        Once I had a name I liked it was time to use it somewhere and the realm of ideals was one I'd liked thinking about. So I used it there.

        Nothing fancy. Just regular brain storming.

        The descriptions for Aethermaius are Lovecraftian filtered through Warren Ellis's whiskey drenched beard. I try to be light and fun with it because it is Lovecraftian and I'm a sucker for weird contrasts like that.

        It's also deep down just me enjoying myself. It plays with Plato's idealism some and later on it will touch briefly on Pythagoreanism, never by name. But it's all part of my own desire to just make up a fantasy realm with my own rules and sometime contradictory logic.

        I believe if an audience knows too much about a magic realm or system then the magic is lost. And so I just keep grabbing from other sources and making up as I go along. I've gotten 43 pages in so far and I'm not sick of the place yet.

        As for envy for it. I enjoy the place but it's hardly unique. I appreciate the comment though.

        Nice to meet you. Jack and Jill and Emptiness updates every Friday. I'll look into your story when I get the time... probably Monday or something at this damned rate.

      Two of them came at me. Killed them. While harvesting their pelts, another three turned up. Killed 'em. While harvesting their pelts (and that of my grizmurdered horse) another three turned up. Killed 'em. While harvesting their pelts, as well as those of two boars that got in the way at the worst fucking moment, another two came up...and after dispatching the first, I misjudged my shot on the second. What I thought was a headshot turned out to be a shouldershot. And did I mention he was already at fucking point blank when I was able to make THAT shot?!

      End result, one dead John Marston, and most of those pelts lose to the ether...although by odd chance, I completed a sharpshooter challenge by taking some of the fuckers out with a single shot, so I got an autosave halfway through the whole debacle.

      I hear that. I have to finish editing this week's Memories, but I'm too wrapped up in this synopsis right now.

      ::Rubs hands together::

      I'm enjoying writing a bullet-point plot. This is going to be interesting.

      As you'd expect, it was the first thing I considered, and I mean the very first thing. But I am absolutely terrified of doing the character injustice. The characters I've chosen, I've done so because I believe I can do them well. They all fit with a theme I'm tying together, all except the big bad, who fits precisely because he DOESN'T fit, and that's what makes him so reprehensible here. But even he, I believe, has something I can put myself into, and write him in the best way I can.

      Also, Gordon's not in this.

      And it's going to be non-linear.

      I'm afraid you'll lose that bet. As daunting as writing Batman is for me, I believe I could do it...but I do not believe I could do the Joker justice. He has no part in my story.

      It's insanely fun, and at the same time heartbreaking to deny some of the supporting cast. There will be no cameos in my story, unless you call Alfred's role that (which I wouldn't), and unfortunately that means losing some people. I would dearly love to put, for example, Killer Croc in this and give him something better than the 'dumb killer' role he's touted for so long, but he doesn't fit the story.

      Agreed on how the Rogue's Gallery is too good. It's so tempting to just throw in links and shout-outs and cameos, but all that would accomplish is disrupting the flow of the story. No, this must be contained.

      Also, another problem I'm finding even as I draw up the plot - I'm so used to narration captions in a Batman story that I continually find myself thinking in first-person narration, which I don't want to do...but at the same time, some of the things I would dearly love to put in make little sense from an omniscient point-of-view. Aaarrrgh...what have you done to me Fools?!

      I'm getting that. I've managed to put a limit on six, including Batman and Alfred of course. Two villains, one ally, and one...flip-floppy. I dunno what you'd call him.

      I have, however, managed to tweak my thoughts. The one I wasn't sure about can indeed be the main villain. I just need to get to his core...work out how to make it him...I'm so close.

      Interesting.

      Dammit, now I'm wondering how many villains to include in this. There's two that I absolutely MUST include, but one definitely can't fit the role of big bad in the story and I don't know about the other. Hmm.

      It's a great feeling, and every time it occurs deserves a celebration, my friend.

      I'd say it's more like watching your child grow up. You're so worked up in making sure they have a good life and you set aside the trust fund so they can make it through school...and right when the bill rolls around in the mail they surprise you by saying "It's OK, Dad, I got this" and go out and get a job. Cue several hours of feeling great because it's not what you planned but your creation has learned to think for HIMSELF, damn it! You don't know how it happened but you're so proud!

      ...damn it. I'll have to do it on my next playthrough.

      Thanks, man

      Dude, I'm scouring the god damn sewers in Arkham and not turning up a goddamn thing. Where the hell is Croc again? I remember you said I need to Batarang something in a T-junction near the Industrial section but I can't find it.

      Found his room, but you said he's not in it, right?

      If I could once again implore you to read this week's Memories chapter and leave the journal a comment...this one, if any, was an attempt recapture the light-fun-slash-deadly-tension of the early Heroes, and I want to know if it worked. It's one of my favourites, this.

      I have been mauling it over all day...and I seriously think Gaider has lost his freaking mind. How the hell are you going to get Alistair/Isabella/Varric together... They have nothing in common! Alistair met Isabella once (twice if you had her at the palace) It just doesn't make any kind of sense.

      You're welcome and I'm looking forward to it.

      Finished it.

      Would you like thoughts in these comments, email or private message?

      Even so. When I promise to do something like that and then delay in acting upon it, it's only fair to make sure you're aware.

      So you are aware: my week has been super-busy which is why I have not yet gotten to the story you sent me. My plan is to print it out, because Wednesday night I have a plane to catch, and I will read it on the plane. I will not be back until Monday next week so feedback won't be until then, but that is how I'm going to play it.
