    And the thing about Doc Ock is that, authentically, he's a mastermind. His main goals are control, vengeance, and most of all, getting ego validation. With that description, he sounds like one of the most petty guys in the universe. And he totally is, his desperate superiority complex goes off the roof.

    But what makes him fun is how goes to such absurdly corrupt yet irresistibly entertaining measures to prove his superior intellect to his enemies.

    One of my favorite examples is in this Iron Man comic:

    In Spider-Man 2, Doc Ock solely wants to remake his old machine out of stubbornness that it didn't work last time and spends most of the movie only robbing a bank and hunting Spider-Man. That's fine in a vacuum, but a faithful interesting Doc Ock needs a high concept plan like Heath Ledger's Joker and Mysterio in Far from Home.

    I have finished watching all of them. My ranking from best to worst favorite goes:

    Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse > Spider-Man 2 > The Amazing Spider-Man 1 > The Amazing Spider-Man 2 > Spider-Man: Far from Home > Spider-Man 1 > Spider-Man 3 > Spider-Man: Homecoming

    Favorite Spider-Man:
    Andrew Garfield > Miles Morales > Tom Holland > Tobey Maguire

    Favorite Peter Parker/Miles Morales:
    Miles Morales > Andrew Garfield > Tobey Maguire > Tom Holland

    I can and will explain more in-depth as to why those are my rankings. But I am curious as to what your reaction is and how your rankings go.

    I'm not seeing it until the last week of July. I'm going to rewatch all of the Spider-Man movies with my best friend beforehand.
  4. It's not easy to work on yourself. It something I should do but haven't so I'm glad you are.

    Bakuman is an interesting read especially with your interest in writing. Only read the original supersons. Not the adventure of the supersons. Immortal Hulk is an interesting book. It's hard to do something interesting with him so it's cool someone mange to found a new approach. You should also try the one where Hulk is the basically a scared guy. It flips the script an in interessting I believe.


    Read your article. Some interesting points about Thanos power being out of nowhere. We just accept it because your comic book readers tells us it's fine. I understand wanting to dig deeper into the reasons the planet was wanting was to be cleaned. Mine is more how does half the people dying help? and we should have seen more of his relation to Gomora if it was going to be so important.

    If you tried to access the article and couldn't log in, I shared it to you. Assuming you were the account I saw trying to look at it lol.

    And here is the link to the Thanos article I wrote in a Google Doc for an entertainment journalism college class. Sorry for not linking it sooner.

    A lot, actually. Sorry that I haven't communicated much last month.

    I'm on summer vacation now. I've decided to make it about self-improvement. So I've made contact with psychologists for therapy sessions and possibly medication. And I've also started exercising at the gym three times a week for at least a couple hours each day.

    And I've been pushing myself to read more books I've put off reading. First on the list is the Bakuman manga. After that, I might switch to western comics. Like reading the new Amazing Spider-Man or Immortal Hulk comics. Or Super Sons. Also have my eye on other books like Marvels, Astro City, Translucid, Watchmen, Kingdom Come, and Batman: White Knight.

    It's an okay movie. Just okay. Has some clever ideas and really cool moments, but for the most part it's either just okay or underwhelming.

    That kind of praise coming fron you is getting me a bit excited. I will see it on Sunday, which is a ways away from now.

    And maybe I will rewatch Infinity War beforehand. Not sure since I plan to watch a lot of things this weekend. Also, I wrote a hot take article for my college entertainment journalism class about why I think MCU Thanos is a bad character. I'm proud of how much I made fun of him in it.

    I haven't read the books since they came out and I only watched the first couple seasons of the show. I have no idea. The books haven't even gotten to officially revealing that yet.
