"This is not a reflective miniseries, or a complex metatextual examination of the superhero gestalt. This is a book about a guy who can shoot fire from his nipples, running for his life." -- Matt Sturges

In the comments to these weekly posts (and only these posts), it's your chance to go as off topic as you like.

Talk about non-comics stuff, thread derail, and just generally chat amongst yourselves.

The Panama Tax haven revelations continue to resound around the world, with British Prime Minister David Cameron coming out of it rather badly.

A new "Suicide Squad" trailer debuts, as does the teaser for "Fantastic beasts and Where to Find Them"

Pope Francis releases a statement titled “Amoris Laetitia" about the role of the family, recommending less rigid enforccement of dogma, and more understanding towards and inclusion of divorced and remarried Catholics.

Whislt not changing Church teaching about homosexual sex being sinful (even if being homosexual in and of itelf is not)   “Every person, regardless of sexual orientation, ought to be respected in his or her dignity and treated with consideration, while ‘every sign of unjust discrimination’ is to be carefully avoided, particularly any form of aggression and violence. Such families should be given respectful pastoral guidance, so that those who manifest a homosexual orientation can receive the assistance they need to understand and fully carry out God’s will in their lives.”

The bit about specifying "aggression and violence" is new, and whilst not a major shift (and should be, hopefully self evident)  given the rather extreme wings of the Catholic Chruch in certain parts of the world, that was probably as much as he could get away with.

No shift on contraception though.

I'd mention the American election campaign again, but frnakly who can miss it.

Supergirl is confirmed to be getting a Season 2, which is great news! :)

Oh, and I finally completed the Doctor Who bonus level of Lego Dimensions, and found yet more fun characters hidden away in Lego Avengers... why does this game have such love for the likes of Avengers Academy and Runaways when the comics don't seem to (Veil is an AWESOME character to play as), oh and nice to see that Wiccan and Hulkling tend to show up together in the game!

All this and the Rogue One trailer hit and looks very promising indeed!

Because Blue Exorcist is too good of a series not to cover, let's look at more of it!

Talking about 'the vampires took over'...

Owari no Seraph it was called by fans "Attack on titan with vampires".
Actually, Yuu is even more obsessed than Eren. He can be really vexing. I find this manga pretty compelling, but the characters are a sore spot...

It was taken over by a couple of their enemies.

So were some of them and Captain America.

Steve Rogers took his mind back and took down the guy who'd taken him.

One of them was still standing.

He moved on. )
