Did they give Superman laser eyes?

 

Can you really "screw up" comic book characters? I mean, most of them have been through about 84 alternate realities, died 47 times, had their back story changed twice a year... comic book characters screw their own characters up so much that TV and films couldn't really get it right even if they tried.

Yeah, he doesnt use them often as he's still getting used to all his powers, but yeah laser eyes a go-go.

 

And God yeah you can screw up characters. Doomsday was mega screwed in the end, which was a shame after he was built up so well.

I think the only time character screw ups annoy me is, for some reason, when they change characters nationalities. I don't know why, but I like that the X-Men are all from different countries, I think it's a fun little addition, and it means something to their character, so when the films turned up with an English Magneto and an American Colossus, that really, really bugged me.

To be fair Magneto at least was a failure on the accent front rather than actually changing the character's nationality.

 

Yeah, that's true. Although, to me, that just made it more confusing. At the start of the film, he's a little Yiddish kid in Poland, 60 years in the future, and he's suddenly an upper class English-man. I'm very pleased indeed that they've actually cast a German this time for the new X-Men film.

If we're including anime characters and anti heroes then what about Zaraki Kenpatchi from Bleach or Kenshiro from Fist Of The North Star?

 

Kenshiro would explode everybodies head.

 

Everybodies.....

 

The next time anything mildly related to the genre of anime gets mentioned, I'm leaving this thread.

 

Why?

 

That said, it doesn't make me long for the days when nuking Japan was socially acceptable, so I guess it can't be real anime.

 

What? :?
