    Is Cyclops supposed to be characterized as a cross between Magneto at his worst and Charlie Sheen at his worst? Because that's all I can see when I read scans of how he's acting right now.

    Yeah, that's where his character development went. Too be fair, it's a step up from being a cardboard cut out of a third-rate Captain America knock-off.
    It's a lie! My pants were off the entire time!

    What if Madoka Magica was adapted by 4kids?

    Episode 1:

    Kyubey: "Hey girls, I am the happy dreams bunny! I will empower you to fight bad dreams and teach you wonderful lessons about friendship and togetherness."

    Madoka: "Yaaaaaay!"

    Homura: "I am the grumpy right now, but I will eventually thaw out as I learn about friendship."

    Episode 3:

    Mami: "Now that I have beaten this small doll bad dream with my ability to summon water pistols, I must move away to another town."

    Madoka: "We will be sad to see you go."

    Sayaka: "Yes."

    Episode 5:

    Kyoko: "Hey new kid, are you up for some friendly sparring?"

    Sayaka: "Yes."

    Episode 8:

    Kyoko: "Well, me and Sayaka must now move away to another town."

    Oktavia: "Yes."

    Madoka: "We will be sad to see you go."

    Homura: "On the plus side, I will have you all to myself. Platonically."

    Madoka: "Yes. Platonically."

    Episode 10:

    Original Timeline Homura: "Oh no, Madoka has been cursed with eternal sleep! I must time travel to save her for platonic reasons!"

    Episode 12:

    Madoka: "Everyone is back now. I'm not on screen at the same time as everyone else, but this reused imagery from previous episodes is totally proof."

    Kyubey: "Friendship is wonderful."

    Should I so choose, I could have already read the book before its release (via advanced copies and the like).

    But I only like getting popular books after the hype surrounding them has died.

    You know I can forgive this recent characterization if drugs were the reason behind it.

    At this point, yes I am pretty sure it's supposed to read that way.

    You know it would make some sense concerning his latest behavior if they had it that the psychic chicks he was with messed up his mind

    I always did like the idea that the White Queen never really reformed.

    You know, the Rainbow Dash vs. Starscream Death Battle episode makes me wonder: Why exactly did G1 Megatron keep Starscream around so long? I mean, the guy's a terrible shot, a coward, a liar, and will try to overthrow you if you so much as get a sore throat RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU.

    I mean, I know it's a running gag amongst G1 fans, but seriously: What kind of shit did Starscream have on Megatron that let him get away with it? Or was Starscream the 'special' little brother of Megatron's wife that he had to keep around to keep her happy?

    I've said it before and I'll say it again: Starscream is clearly a Mad Scientist acting out on the frustration resulting from Megatron's horrible personnel allocation skills.

    Dude isn't even slightly qualified to lead the Decepticon Air Force, other than that he has a jet mode. He was however a Scientist before the war, was able to construct the Combaticons from a bunch of scrapped military vehicles, modified Dr Arkeville's tech into an anti-planet superweapon on the fly and locked him out of the controls, nearly hotwired Unicron's severed head to Cybertron as a replacement body...
