Either you're messing with us, or you really believe what you're posting. Neither option really augurs any meaningful discussion, so I'll just promise to stay off your lawn and leave it at that.

Not to mention her sharp knees....

Um... she'd be even hotter if she DID pull off that clothing!

Truthfully, I consider it an Avengers book and A + X as the "team-up" book.

But Deadpool is considered an "X Character" though?

(I don't know for sure, IMO the X Books have been a hot mess for the last 20 years.)

That's interesting; no where in his statement did I read that he has "...no problems with them showing a human being charred to death..."

Is it that she needs to be skinnier to pull off that clothing? If so, wouldn't that be setting a bad example for all those family viewers?

Well, the premise of the book is that they grouped a bunch of Avengers with a bunch of X-Men. And Sunfire was one of the X-Men. That's all I was trying to say.

He certainly doesn't appear to consider it something worth complaining about, especially when there's a woman on the screen wearing a bra and panties.

Lots of bad acting in this episode. I mostly liked the plotting, but the actors kept pulling me out of the story.

One thing I find interesting about this show is that SHIELD is kind of a d*ck. The Rising Tide, as stupid as such as thing is an an adversary, isn't automatically on the wrong side of things because there's a ton of moral and ethical (and legal) ambiguity in what SHIELD does. That's pretty cool. I think the show is aware of it, but what I can't tell yet is whether it cares. That is, I don't know whether the show think it's enough just to show these cards, or whether it has the ambition (or skill) to actually play them out.

If you think the acting was bad in English, the acting in Cantonese was horrid.

Especially since Changchien only speaks Japanese.

I like Ming Na but her fighting and action scenes aren't very believable.

I still dislike Fitz-Simmons.

Who the heck was the guy in jail that floral print dress lady visited?

This is what keeps dragging this average show down...and I'm being generous using "average". I give it one or two more eps, then, if it doesn't improve, heave ho!

Austin Nichols was in John from Cincinnati and has always been a terrible actor, he is just hot that is why he keeps getting roles.

Some comic book nerd (NERDS!) can correct me.. but wasn't Scorch's power essentially exactly the same as the Human Torch in the Fantastic Four?

(or is this the "bad and good versions of the same character" kind of thing they seem to do?)

I only have a casual knowledge of the comics (I actually know more about comic book characters based on their movies than I do based on their comics), but Scorch seemed to me to be very similar to Pyro from X-Men, except that he can also actually spontaneously generate fire.

I would be much more concerned about the violence than the sex. But alas, for some reason violence is overlooked in this country while sex is taboo.
