Dr. Strange is Sorcerer Supreme again. And, yes, Eternity proclaimed Pym Scientist Supreme. There were reasons why it wasn't Richards or Stark, but I don't recall them.

Really? Damn.. i knew why i quit reading comics some years ago (though Stark is more of an engineer than a Scientist, surprised Richards was not chosen).

Or he lied to that guy to convince him to accept his fate with some dignity and without taking anyone else out with him.

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

The accusation in the comic book was that Hank had had another mental breakdown and imagined it which at the time seemed 50/50.

Stj ,I've been watching Blossom and Sheldon Cooper do the mating dance all day long.

I also have three seasons of the Lair on my hard drive I'm afraid to watch.

Nerd/Nerdette shipping, it would be too gay for broadcast.
What? You do realize we've had gay characters on network shows for quite a while now.
Sorry, I had a Guy Gardener moment. That was just a joke about how Nerd is so emasculated that a Nerd/Nerdette 'ship would be lesbian. But in any event the gay characters very rarely have relationships.

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

Remember when the WB wouldn't let Joss say the word "lesbian" so Willow and Tara had to use terms like "we cast spells together".

If you're going to lie, tell a satisfying one. Coulson could have bet his card collection the guy would have been pleased to hear Jesus was waiting. Also, none of the others took anyone else "out" with them and it's not at all clear why this one would either. A hazmat suit was all that was needed.

Hank Pym is the Scientist Supreme.
I didn't vote for him.


Who's idea was it to create the concept of a "Scientist Supreme"?
Please tell me that's not an official title in the MU nowadays akin to Sorcerer Supreme held by Dr. Strange in the past and last i heard passed onto some Voodoo guy a few years back.

But i agree with others that having one supergenius who's equally capable in all fields of science would just be lame.. part of the budding charm of the duo is that they compliment each other and they're rarely mentioned as one person (which i kind of find funny when they're names are mashed together).
It would also be inconsistent with the characters as established so far.

At this point, I see no reason to think or even suppose that Coulson lied about what he experienced while he was dead. Also, I'm with those who think that the scene with the firefighter is a great scene. I think it's among the best individual scenes of the series so far.

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

Amen. Diaz needed a note of peace of heart to go out with, and Coulson was able to make an informed attempt to provide it.

This scene's going to stick with me awhile.

It also gives me hope that this show may become more than strange case of the week.. that was solid and unconventional writing for TV and i hope to see more of it.

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

I'm finally caught up with the show. I think the first couple of episodes were a bit bland, so it took me ages to catch up again. I've really enjoyed the last two episodes, however, so I think I'm in for the season.

That scene with Coulsen and the fireman was very effective, as were his discussions regarding what happened to him after New York.
