    Why Disney's twist villains don't work:

    It's cool. I had those several times throughout my summer. Feel free to chat it up as much as you like.

    I just watched a recent video about good and bad Disney twist villains. Then it reminded me of Ernesto de la Cruz in Coco. And now I remember how disappointed I was by the movie going for such a safe villain route about catching a murderer like a Scooby-Doo cartoon instead of a compelling conflict solely about family obligation vs artistic dreams. And also and the great grandma getting with the great grandpa again in a totally dysfunctional forced cliche way that reminds me of how awful my parents' marriage is.

    Every trailer for Wreck-It Ralph 2 has no sign of plot motivation or conflict and only focuses on self-conscious Disney references. So I'm worried about that movie. A lot.

    Which comics I'm reading? Not as much as I used to, that's for sure.

    Right now, I'm following the new IDW Sonic the Hedgehog series, The Amazing Spider-Man, and The Immortal Hulk. I'll probably read The Superior Octopus once it starts in October because I loved Superior Spider-Man and Doctor Octopus.

    I'm actually not reading any DC comics. I don't know which series are written well enough to interest me. I'm tempted to try Justice League only because of the recent Legion of Doom arc.

    I need to buy the third compendium for Image Comics' Invincible superhero series. And I have wanted to reading Neil Gaiman's Sandman comics for years but never have the money to do it. Maybe this Christmas I can finally do it. I also want to but all of the IDW Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comics, but that will cost a lot too.

    If we're counting manga too, then I'm currently reading One Piece, My Hero Academia, Berserk, Dr. Stone, and Noah's Notes. Although I haven't read the last two in a long while.

    When I told my parents I was agnostic earlier this year, they didn't get angry at me, but got worried enough to keep badgering me with talks and texts quoting scriptures, asking me how I could not believe in Jesus' supernatural abilities, warning me about not going to Hell, and asking if I had any sense of ethics without the Bible's guidances. I don't judge them too harshly since I know they were only looking out for my well-being, but I still found it a bit insulting how they questioned my capacity for intuitive compassion like that. They stopped a few months ago, fortunately.

    I prefer having an existentialist perspective on life. However, I do respect religious people who are tolerant and find fulfillment in their beliefs. They have every right to believe in what they want to believe if they don't force that on others, and religious followings can help people a lot if moderated properly. I do like how humble and peaceful churches feel as communal sanctuaries.

    I tried believing in God as a child and even wore a gold crucifix necklace for a year. But my experiences with my cynical atheist cousins and learning about the selfish vindictive acts God has supposedly done make me not want to believe in a divine being like that. I also don't like the idea of innocent compassionate people going to Hell just because they don't see any rational evidence in God existing, or how our morality has to be based on some random scriptures instead of using our own tangible conscience and intellect to become decent people through experience.

    You were raised in a country like that? Interesting. I live in the U.S., and while there are definitely states like the Bible Belt region that fervently enforce Christianity, I don't know if there's any place with such radical supernatural beliefs in my country.

    My parents are Christian but they never participate in any religious events. Which sort of makes them "lazy" Christians I guess, but I'll never complain about not going to church every Sunday morning like other religious families lol. I've been baptized, but I haven't received communion. My parents don't force religious beliefs on me, but at the same time they strongly urge me to believe in something religious.

    I did not expect you to answer my Tobias Whale reference question with such depth lol (I was just hinting that I finally finished Black Lightning season one on Netflix, but I always appreciate getting to learn more about my friends.

    I have the same perspective on souls not existing. Which makes me wonder how society will treat robots can gain adaptive intelligence and emotional responses on the levels of humans in the future, since the only difference to me is that they are made of metal instead of flesh. I don't think humanity is that special to be spiritually superior to any other life forms, natural or artificial.

    The premise for The Multiversity: The Just reminds me of a scrapped premise for Incredibles 2 where after the Incredibles put supers back in the limelight, they would become talk show and reality show stars to resemble the superhero pop culture craze in our current generation. That would have been a WAY more interesting premise to explore than what Brad Bird went with. The other scrapped concepts involve destructive artificial intelligence villains, which would have been bland and already too similar to the Omnidroid. But as for the story, damn, that's messed up. Compellingly realistic though considering the entertainment industry's history of blackmailing people for misguided reasons stemming from political controversies, celebrity worship, and normalizing criminal acts of people with high status.
