Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

The essay was written in 1971.

If you couldn't read, or walk or breathe in 1971, lets just remember that old people humour is weird.

Although, it only takes Clark 5 days to downgrade towards a "relatively" human powerset... Beach-house on the dark side of the moon, and don't go back to Earth till the baby is out.

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

FWIW, the Niven premise is supported by the fact that in the comics of the era (ca. 1976) there was a story that is considered to imply the first time that Lois and Supes ever got it on in the Silver/Bronze Age continuity (the "Beef Bourguignon" incident)...and in that story, Supes is powerless and pursuing a relationship with Lois as Clark.

How? He's strong enough to fight the Hulk, so he should break Jane in half with just a sneeze. He can't control his climax. He'll shoot a hole right through her like Hancock almost did to that groupie in his movie.

He is a God. His strength comes from magic. The mythological world is rampant with demigods who's mothers managed to have sex with gods and not die.

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

Meanwhile last week, Valkyrie passed out from exhilaration at the the peek of a sexual climax with our friend Flash Thompson.

It's so nice when our friends hook up.

Wait?

If he was wearing Venom at the time, which he almost certainly was, did that make it a threesome? And did Flash subconsciously order or literally order Venom to use himself as a condom... Venom is a girl? Venom has babies, so either the symbiote is a girl or asexual.

Also, if venom was an an equal parter in that sex, how else would Flash have had the Strength to "get'er done" then why wasn't Venom allowed to spray his DNA inside her just like the human was?

Then the next event dealio might very well be Planet of the Symbiotes II: Asgard.

One more time: That's the comics. It's not the case in the movie/TV universe that we're discussing. The MCU Thor is an alien, not a god. Odin explicitly said in The Dark World that Asgardians are not gods.

We're bouncing back and forth between the comics and the TV/Movie universes,discussing characters who have yet to appear in the MCU and sharing when we first met certain characters.

Any how, the point still remains. The "mythological" world is rampant with "demigods" who's mothers managed to have sex with [Aliens who have been mistaken for ] gods and not die.

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

Yes, of course it's true that gods have mated with mortals. But that doesn't answer the question about the movies' Thor, which is my point. It explains it in a different context, but if MCU Thor is, like Superman, a superstrong alien, then the issue of whether he and Jane could safely become intimate remains unresolved.

Was it a question about the movies' Thor or Thor in general? It was part of a thread drift about several non movie characters.

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

Last time I checked Thor's mum was Geia.

The living soul of planet Earth.

That's a lot of non Asgardian magic in his dna.

(Regular Asgardians can only lift/press 35 tons.)

Has Jane tired to pick up the hammer?

She spent years with her soul merged with Sif.

A little worthiness had to have rubbed off while they were tangled up.

If Jane can pick up the hammer, then she's strong enough to take what Thor can deliver.

The point is, even if the discussion is about Thor in general, movie Thor is still part of the discussion, and it's a part that isn't in any way addressed by the "Thor is a god" line. So that's not a comprehensive enough answer because it only answers for one version of Thor, not all of them. It's incomplete.

Being a God or even a "God" is answer enough.

They're faux gods. The results of aliens tinkering with human DNA. Dumb humans kept thinking they were gods and pissing off the real ones. Of course taking names like Thena and Makkarri didn't help.

Maybe for you, but not for me, and not for a lot of other people. And the rest of us are entitled to keep asking questions.

Which pretty much encapsulates the whole religion-vs.-science thing right there, doesn't it?

Since we're talking about a fictional God or a fictional alien, I'm not so sure.

The question asked cannot really be answered by "us". Only those in charge of the fictional future of Thor will answer it, if they chose. At best we can speculate. My speculation is based on the "fact" that Gods/"Gods" and humans have had sex and produced off spring without the death of the human partner.
