Nope, "don't read the comments" pretty much an everywhere rule, I'm afraid. Comms are usually exceptions, though.

Went to my brother's law school graduation in Seattle (held at a baseball stadium). The school was founded and predominantly administered by Catholics. The senior admin had everyone "reach their hands out to grant a blessing over the graduates."

Bleachers full of people all raising their hands straight out...

My Jewish mother and I were thoroughly skeeved.

heh sorry i know i shouldn't giggle, but as a long standing catholic (despite issue) that is a standard for a group/comunal blessing. i do see though to an outsider that might be... awkward.

(out of curiosity do jewish people lay hands for blessing?)

Ethnically Jewish, not religious. Not even a little :P

But to my knowledge, it's something that was referred to in the Old Testament traditions, but hasn't continued through to the modern Orthodoxy. Certain ceremonies have hands laid over one's eyes and motions made with hands (you'd see women do this at Seder dinners for lighting Shabbat candles), but nothing like the Christian tradition, granting blessings by laying hands.

Then again, putting a hand upon the head is such an old practice, many groups and institutions have carried this forward beyond a religious context.

Also Catholic, and I've never seen that method used for a blessing. Maybe it's recognised as being a little unfortunate where I've been.

It's generally used when a congregation is called to bless a specific person or group who is presented before them at the altar. Most common during easter when catechumens(sp)/candidates are recieving the rights of initiation.....

Wow.... I've never done that before

In the congregations I've been a part of, the priest will raise their hand over the person (but not in a Nazi style salute, more holding their hand over them) and ask us to join him in blessing them. No Nuremberg recreations for us thankfully!

As a Catholic that strikes me as an odd request. In most cases where a blessing is asked for in my experience, people would be asked to simply bow their heads and as for God's blessing, or if asked to raised their hands, would lift both hand palms upwards in beseechment. I've never seen a single hand being raised in a salute like that.

We raise one hand at mine. Two if they chose, but is not in a salute fashion.... I guess if I was gonna be crude... Its "aiming" your prayers at them (i sometimes picture light beams coming out of my hand-s).... Yeah yeah... I know...

In my PUBLIC High school in San Diego they would make us do that before singing the school's anthem, also every time we said the pledge of allegiance.

It seemed wrong to me so I just put my right hand over my heart and recited the stuff, I got into a lot of trouble but doing that hand salute always creeps me out too.

I like to think ALL Doombots are singing Doombots, there to supply four part harmony whenever Doom is in the mood for a tune, and since Doom is nearly always drawn in damn near operatic poses that's a LOT.

(Seriously, if he's being drawn in such a way that he DOESN'T look like he's ready to declaim an aria right then and there, then they're not drawing him right)

All I can see is the panel from Franklin Richards, Son of a Super Genius Not So Secret Invasion where Franklin escapes from the amazed Skrull.

"You just tied me to a chair and stuck me in a closet. Sorry, dude, but I've been tied up by more super villains than you can count. I know Doctor Doom. Doctor Doom is an enemy of mine. Trust me, you're no Doctor Doom!"

Franklin's had to deal with Doom since he was born. The kid knows which buttons to push.

Doom, of course, has no buttons to push. Doom is in full control of his own actions at all times.

Is TRIUMPH & TORMENT, the story where Doom & Doc Strange went to Hell and freed Doom's mother, still canon? The writers seem to go back and forth on it.

From: [personal profile] nomadicwriter
I think it's always been considered canon, it's just that when it was published it was supposed to take place at some undefined point in the future. But technically it ought to have happened by now, since it has Doctor Strange at full power as Sorcerer Supreme and various other details that date it. This page claims it has to have taken place before F4 #379 in the 90s.
