      It gets lost to people that I like comics because of how much I talk about films. But in truth I really do love comics. Personally I'm a bigger Marvel fan than I am DC but that is because of the media I grew up around. For every Batman series there were 3 Marvel not to mention Spider-Man was one of the strongest influences on me as a kid in the realm of Superheros. Since then I do my best to not discriminate between the two or leave out the other publishers either.

      But I've been following this new game "Injustice: Gods Among Us" and I have to admit I really like the look of the game. NetherRealm Studios is handling a DC fighting, I love that Idea! My friend and I always have a great time playing fighting games especially "Mortal Kombat vs. DC So I am really looking forward to the game but then they announced a tournament pitting the games characters against each other as a way to show off the game and build hype, what's not to love? Batman vs. Superman and the winner of each fight is voted on by the audience.

      I hate this argument, I really do. It's the equivalent of "Goku Vs. Superman" except in the DC universe. It is an obvious battle we have seen in multiple depictions with varying outcomes and I'm just tired of it. I understand wanting to pit the 2 bigs of the DC universe against each other because there can be only one but haven't we done this enough? Don't we want to see some other fights? In their bracket system they had some pretty interesting fights set up but left out some of the characters.

      The very first fight was Batman vs Bane. A relatively enjoyable pitting but with an obvious conclusion. The following fight was Wonder Woman vs Harley Quinn, and that struck me as a pretty interesting fight. Yet again pretty obvious conclusion but none the less interesting. And I knew how the fights would go from here with pretty obvious winners with a few exception but some of these groups struck me as really intriguing! Green Arrow vs Hawk Girl, The Joker vs Lex Luthor, Solomon Grundy vs Green Lantern! I love that! Characters fighting each other that I had never thought of fighting.

      A question I had heard posed before "Why are all the archenemies of heroes just the evil version of the hero? Why doesn't Sinestro go to Metropolis and fight Superman?" which was their set up! Sinestro fought Superman right out of the gate! I love that! But why not not have Superman fight Batman to begin with get it out of the way? We know why, it's to keep people interested. But we didn't have to take it! We could have made the decision to end that bullshit right there but we didn't. As usual we took the bait. Batman will fight Superman and in the end one side will say it is wrong and the other will tell them they are butthurt, I point you back to "ScrewAttack's Death Battle". We could have had interesting fights but we have been herded into the very obvious formula we always fall into.

      Batman could have fought Green arrow. Superman could have fought Wonder Woman. But as it stands now Batman will win his side and Superman will win his side and then people will complain. It was all in our hands, I voted for interesting fights and the outcome wasn't in my favor. I'm still stoked about this game but I'm also disappointed in the fandom again. We had the chance for something new.

      I got in to MLP:FiM at the beginning of Season 2 and how could I not with John de Lancie? Seriously?! But I had to go back and watch Season 1 and as far as I'm aware I've seen all of it now. But I missed all the discussion about tit so I wanted to ask.

      1. What did you think of Season 1?
      2. What was your favorite Episode and why?
      3. What was your least favorite and why?
      4. Who is your favorite character at the end of Season 1?
      5. What was your first impression of the series, and has it changed at all?

      For me...
      1. I loved Season 1. It established the characters and setting really well. The lessons were good and it really endeared me to the idea of ponies.
      2. Party of One. The episode where Pinkie Pie thinks her friends have abandoned her and goes a little crazy only to discover that they were getting her own surprise party ready. It was nice to see Pinkie in a different light then just super happy. And it seems like a good lesson to not just jump to conclusions like Pinkie did, because not everyone is talking about you behind your back. just have faith in your friends and you should see the entire picture soon enough.
      3. Over a Barrel. The ponies visit the frontier town Appleloosa, but are caught in a dispute between the settler ponies and the native buffalo herd over who claimed the land their apple orchard was established on. I didn't really care for the Indian comparison they were going fro and the solution seemed really obvious to me. Also "You Got to Share, You Got to Care" is my least favorite Pinkie Pie song.
      4. Pinkie Pie has been my favorite character since the beginning and that hasn't changed at all. She is just so much fun and is really relatable to me.
      5. When I first heard about MLP I hated it, without any provocation. I used the old "It's for little girls" thing when asked about it. But then I caught the beginning of season 2. So I watched it and I have to say I was hooked. I went back and watched the rest of them and I am a true fan, so much so I don't hate the term brony anymore and will gladly accept it when people call me one.

      So what do you think of it?

      I figured I'd ask you guys about your favorite pony. And why they are your favorite.

      For me My favorite pony is...

      Pinkie Pie
      images?q=tbn:ANd9GcSmHHiOiPMeCyP7sCVwydo

      The reason has to be her boundless energy and innocents. She reminds me of a younger version of me. And that is just one of the reasons I enjoy the show so much. Pinkie is only trying to make everyone happy which is something I really agree with and would love to do. I'll do just about anything if it will make people laugh. So Pinkie is my favorite character. It also doesn't hurt that she seems to bend reality to her will!
