    Very similar to the Forces of Destiny Star Wars series, but with characters from different eras.

    My kids will enjoy these.

    Also, those two """"""groundbreaking characters"""""" are a shitty sex and race swap of Snake Eyes, and the other is easily the worst Transformers character introduced in recent years.

    Is that seriously the best you could come up with for this little thing? That's truly sad.

    This is very, very true. The police officer assigned to my high school is certainly on the heavy side (but has slimmed down considerably over the last couple of months), but can usually stop a fight in less than, say, 15 seconds?

    There's some evidence that shows that Shakespeare was only lauded because he knew Important People. Also, he wrote a lot, and a lot of populist work. In other words, pablum for the masses. This sort of easily digestible stuff is what made his works easy to absorb, with concepts that could be passed on for about 400 years.

    Y'know. Like comics.

    Now I do think there's a lot of agenda slinging in comics, but that's hardly new. That PLUS what I consider a lot of bad writing doesn't help things. That said, modern comics have given us fun stuff, especially if you consider the last 20 years. I'll fight anyone that tries to take my Tick and SCUD the Disposable Assassin trades away from me.

    Wow, you appear to have expended a lot of thought and energy into something you don't like, or for that matter feel does not appeal to you and therefore shouldn't appeal to anyone.

    Sadly, you'll ignore how successful this will be, based on the success of other properties like Star Wars: Forces of Destiny and DC Superhero Girls.

    You're just going to post this over and over until someone acknowledges your brilliance of a tombstone meme.

    Not for nothing my dude, but aren’t you here because you collect toys?
    Especially toys that were originally conceptualized and written by a comic book company?

    So, I know I was just saying how great this idea is, and I stand by that, but I also stand by your view as well. What would one call a female Snake Eyes? Snake Thighs, or, strictly speaking, Jinx?

    And I agree, a story without Windblade > a story with Windblade these days. Not to say she can't be saved, I'd very much be up for her to undergo a Drift-type thing where her character is reinvigorated. Write her to be just like her country-young, scrappy, and hungry, and go from there.

    WOW! I sure am glad that comic writers today went back to 1984 to retroactively create the Transformers!

    Uh. Everything about G1 was conceptualized by Marvel Comics.
    I thought you knew at least the history of what you passionately collect.

    Wow. How far Jem has fallen.

    If thats Jinx portraying Snek-eyes, thats pretty cool. So long as shes NOT calling herself Snek-Eyes.

    Believe me, I've said it a number of times, the best comic on the shelves right now is Saga. It's the most progressive book I've ever read, BY FAR.

    The problem isn't progressive ideals; The problem is the bad writing.

    It's just easier for well written imbeciles to say that it's people being haters than to actually address the valid criticisms that are being thrown at these books.

    Yeah! Hasbro should just give up their lofty aspirations and start making children’s toys or something!

    Don't bother, man. Once you start running into this sort of thing you might as well be yelling at the kid that gets your order wrong at McDonalds. He doesn't care, and all you do is lose 5 minutes of your life being irritated.

    I edited your quote to make it so you were actually arguing against my point. Sorry if I hurt your egotistical Strawman.
