Despite this, the art is amazing and the colors are vibrant. The characters are drawn beautifully, and the action scenes are thrilling. The artist has done a great job at capturing the personalities of the characters and their interactions with each other. There is a lot of potential for the relationship between Craig and Storm to develop further, but it’s hard to get past the lack of backstory. Storm’s character is also very one-dimensional and it’s clear that she is relying too heavily on her own power and prestige.http://https://youtu.be/C4geO8PKs_o
The story of Rogue and Gambit is one of a complicated relationship of two people with deep romantic feelings for each other, yet they are unable to express those feelings in a meaningful way. The third issue of the limited series deepens this story as readers get to witness the conflict between Rogue and Gambit as they both struggle to understand each other’s point of view. The artwork of the series is also captivating, with its vivid colors and dynamic paneling, it truly brings the story to life.http://https://youtu.be/T1GTdMxmZEI
The book review for Wolverine includes a narrative summary of the major players in the series (Wolverine, Beast, and Jeff Bannister). I swear, at one point in this book, I was reminded of a SNL skit from 90s… Beast is Trippin!! SNL Skit https://youtu.be/BCnisuY1DWwhttp://https://youtu.be/Uf0VEjVt5Gk
A game that will probably be in limbo for a while, on the verge of being terrible and great, until that one play where it just clicks, or that one expansion that makes or brakes.
It finally happened. I have run out of games for this series, it probably won’t be long, but nice to know that it is possible to catch up.
Greetings, Splendid Seven devotees, martial arts aficionados, fighting video game fans, and admirers of all things Super Sentai and Power Rangers. Antoni here with another written entry focusing on Sesshoumaru, Shuran, Inuyasha, Hakkaku, Ginta, Ayame, and Shunran specializing in the martial arts they do. The Power Rangers fan in me always believes that there is select Power Rangers who are appropriate best friends and sparring partners for Sesshoumaru, Shuran, Inuyasha, Hakkaku, Ginta, Ayame, and Shunran to fight with, encourage them, and just be the best people they are in their lives as martial artists and as people. Therefore, I have mainly chosen the Saban-Era of Power Rangers from Mighty Morphin to Wild Force to act as The Splendid Seven’s sparring partners, best friends, and encouragers of the martial arts they do. As this has been a passion project of mine for several months, I figure that there are more Power Rangers suitable to be Sesshoumaru’s, Shuran’s, Inuyasha’s, Hakkaku’s, Ginta’s, Ayame’s, and Shunran’s best friends for life aside from their obvious Mighty Morphin counterparts, i.e., Tommy and Jason being Inuyasha’s best brothers for life as well as his main source of inspiration for being the Red Tyrannosaurus Inuranger and leader of his team. Thus, it is time to unleash the power for the rangers to champion every endeavor that The Splendid Seven find themselves in. Without further ado, let’s get started. It’s morphin’ time! Shift into Turbo! Let’s rocket! Go Galactic! Lightspeed Rescue! Time for Time Force! Quantum Power! Wild Access! Sesshoumaru and the Shining Emperors of the Cages (Mixed Martial Arts) Zhane, Merrick Baliton, and Sesshoumaru make a truly formidable trio of mixed martial artists who can strike terror on any paean who dares to challenge them. Unlike the UFC’s predominantly frat-bro, dude-bro mindset, Sesshoumaru and his two best friends who happen to be Silver Power Rangers live in discipline, honor, self-respect, and dignity. There are neither wild parties nor puerile pranks that these gentlemen find themselves doing, for regimented training, physical conditioning, mental meditation, and drinking tea after every sparring match are their rituals. Zhane considers Sesshoumaru to be one of the most valiant warriors to ever dominate the cage and always advises him on how to perform his takedowns more effectively. Merrick is grateful to have Sesshoumaru as his sparring buddy for life because they enjoy delivering deadly attacks, with his signature ground and pounds, sprawl and brawls, armbars, double leg takedowns, ankle locks, knee bars, and Kimuras being weapons of mass destruction. As a disciplined martial artist, Sesshoumaru is happy to have companions such as Zhane and Merrick, for they can find common ground in the things they enjoy most whether in Mixed Martial Arts or simpler moments like drinking tea in their dojo. Shuran and the Brutish Kings of the Rings (Professional Wrestling) Mike Corbett the black-clad Magna Defender and Ryan Mitchell the glowing Titanium Ranger may dwarf in stark comparison to Shuran’s massive size as a pro wrestler, but their coaching styles can motivate him to balance brute strength with tactfulness when making his opponents surrender. Mike and Ryan always encourage Shuran to remain open to every wrestling style, not just the American, British, Mexican, and Japanese styles that they have come to become familiar with, but also with international styles from Mongolia, Turkey, and India to attempt every submission hold, powerslam, bearhug, piledriver, Boston Crab, Full Nelson, and German suplex available. Outside the moves that Shuran practices with Mike and Ryan, they live by the codes of perseverance and being open to every challenge that is dished out to them and avoid any backstage politics usually omnipresent in Professional Wrestling. Mike always sees to it that Shuran does not always act impulsively when launching attacks, while Ryan ensures that Shuran combines technique with brute strength well. Shuran is grateful and happy to have two stout-hearted and valiant fighters like Mike and Ryan as his best friends because they can see beyond his brutishness and see a loyal soul underneath. Inuyasha and the Red Nemean Lions of the Olympic Arenas (Pankration) Inuyasha is one fortunate warrior to have intensely bloody ten-man Pankration sparring sessions with his best brothers forever Eric Myers, Leo Corbett, Tommy Oliver, Jason Lee Scott, Alex Drake, Wes Collins, TJ Johnson, Andros, Carter Grayson and Cole Evans, thus busking in Heracles’s and Theseus’s glory and might. Eric, Leo, Tommy, Jason, Alex, Wes, TJ, Andros, Carter, and Cole constantly champion Inuyasha’s muscular power as a Pankration champion and do everything in their power to encourage him to aim for Olympus. Inuyasha admires Eric’s fortitude, Leo’s strength, Tommy’s fighting prowess, Jason’s toughness, Alex’s military will, Wes’s heroism, TJ’s charisma, Andros’s focus, Carter’s determination, and Cole’s heart. Out of all the ten Red Rangers, Inuyasha is especially close to Eric, Leo, Tommy, Jason, Alex, and Wes because he enjoys his intense workouts with them and the many tracheal grip chokes, rear naked chokes, guillotine chokes, heel hooks, hammer fists, double axe handles, and Superman punches that they can employ on each other. Eric and Leo are just as impressed with Inuyasha’s strength and encourage him to be the strong husband he can be for Ayame, given that Eric and Taylor as well as Leo and Maya are also husband and wife. Hakkaku and the Black and Blue Bruisers of the Palace Grounds (Muay Boran) Black and blue may be the colors of the bruises that Muay Boran fighters receive when dealing with such visceral beatings, but they are also the colors of the attire Hakkaku’s brothers from other mothers wear as Black and Blue Power Rangers. Zack Taylor, Carlos Vallerte, Trey of Triforia, and Danny Delgado as Power Rangers donning black are honored to be as steadfast as a brother to Hakkaku, while Rocky DeSantos, Chad Lee, and Lucas Kendall as Power Rangers donning blue consider their loyalty to Hakkaku as unparalleled as ever. Zack and Rocky revel in Hakkaku’s head, shins, knees, and elbows of steel because of how they can be able to…
(The Silver Hills Hip-Hop Club. A vast building that serves as a venue for several hip-hop musicians, rappers, and R&B singers to perform, especially for a huge and nearly sold-out crowd. A black limousine is parked in front of the entrance, and a throng of people are entering the club in droves. Everybody is finding their seats, with a businessman in a black blazer with black pants, black shoes, and a maroon collared shirt; a gentleman in a silver Time Force uniform, and several Silver Guardian officers seated at the very front seats. The businessman is named Albert Collins, while the Time Force officer is named Captain Logan.) Albert Collins: This is going to be quite a performance tonight. My son is part of this rap band founded by Alex and Eric, who are also two of the finest commanders of Time Force and the Silver Guardians combined. Captain Logan: Indeed, Mr. Collins. It would be an amusing experience seeing what talents Eric, Alex, and Wes have in rapping. I never thought that they would be into this type of urban music. Albert: I’m confident they will perform wonderfully. Captain Logan: So am I, sir. So am I. (The spotlight shines on a blue mechanical owl flying from the left side of the balcony, as the audience cheers loudly. The mechanical owl is named Circuit and has a voice reminiscent of a young child, as he positions himself in the center of the stage.) Circuit: Wow! This is quite the full house tonight. All right, ladies and gentlemen! Without further ado, please give it up for The Red Chrono Crew! (Circuit points his right wing to his right to introduce The Red Chrono Crew consisting of Eric Myers the jet-black-haired Quantum Ranger, Alexander “Alex” Drake the jet-black-haired first Red Time Force Ranger/current Crimson Shadow Ranger, and Wesley “Wes” Collins the blond-haired second/current Red Time Force Ranger. Circuit exits to his left, as the spotlight shines on Eric standing in the center, Alex standing on the left, and Wes standing on the right and the fast-paced hip-hop beats begin. Eric, Alex, and Wes are wearing sleeveless red tank tops, khaki pants, and black and red sneakers. Alex and Wes cross their arms while moving their knees, and Eric is ready to start the rap.) Eric: Yeah! Give it up, give it up! Silver Guardian represent! (Eric signals the audience to cheer) Time Force too! (Audience cheers loudly.) Y’all know what time it is? (Eric points to his watch on his left wrist.) Yeah, y’all! Now, throw your hands up high! Clinch that Quantum Power might! Name’s Eric Myers I’m on fire With my Q-Rex pumped To crush some punks! Yeah, I’m the big mac daddy. Silver Guardians represent. (The Silver Guardians officers cheer loudly for Eric.) Alex: Name’s Alex Drake You cannot break My du-du-duty and authority! (Shows his Time Force badge.) Captain Logan: Word up. Time Force Officers: Boo-yah! Wes: The name’s Wes Collins Don’t need no bling Got my brothers and my sister (Lucas Kendall the Blue Time Force Ranger, Trip Regis the Green Time Force Ranger, and Katie Walker the Yellow Time Force Ranger pose alongside Wes.) And my queen! (Jen the Pink Time Force Ranger smiles, kisses Wes on his right cheek, and leads him on as if he were an obedient pet. After that, Jen breaks him off from being led on, as both she and Wes do some shimmies with smiles on their faces.) Eric: Yeah! Go, homeboy! Go, homegirl! So, y’all get ready to get a clue ‘Cuz it’s time to get busy with the- Eric, Alex, and Wes: Red Chrono Crew! (The back of the stage explodes with red smoke, as Eric, Alex, and Wes do the rock-on sign together. The crowd cheers wildly and loudly.) Albert: I never realized that Wes had it in him to rap so amazingly! Captain Logan: Alex’s rhythm and timing are impeccable! Albert: And Eric, wow, he makes a great frontman. Eric: And, now, the latest add-ons to our Red Chrono Crew. Alex: These guys are legends. Wes: And our soul brothers who need no introduction. Eric: Leo Corbett- Alex: Tommy Oliver- Wes: And Jason Lee Scott. Eric, Alex, and Wes: Give it up for our radical Red Ranger brothers, y’all! (Eric, Alex, and Wes point their fingers to their right to reveal three brown-haired men also in sleeveless red tank tops, khaki pants, and black and red sneakers entering the stage to greet the audience. The audience cheers more loudly than ever.) Jason (to Eric, Alex, and Wes): Thanks, bros! Tommy (to the audience): What’s up, everybody? Leo (to the audience): We got more coming up for you! So, let’s go! Jason: Now, everybody, go AYAH! Audience: AYAH! Tommy: Now, UYAH! Audience: UYAH! Tommy: Now, HIYA SI HIYA! Audience: HIYA SI HIYA! Leo: Now, everybody in the house, go AYAAAAAAAAAAAAHH!!!!!!!! (The audience stands up, claps, and cheers very loudly. Albert, Captain Logan, the Time Force officers, and the Silver Guardians stand up from their seats and cheer for Eric, Alex, and Wes as well as for Leo, Tommy, and Jason. Eric and Leo clasp hands and give each other a hug as do Tommy and Alex as well as Jason and Wes.) Eric: Epic delivery, Leo. Leo: Amazing work you did on those bars, Eric. Alex: I love your work, Tommy. Tommy: Alex, you were totally awesome tonight. Wes: Dude, Jason, thanks for keeping up the ante tonight. Jason: No prob, Wes. By the way, you were just as morphenomenal. (Eric, Alex, and Wes take their bows as do Leo, Tommy, and Jason. The audience continues to happily cheer for all…
Only more difficult and intense compared to SSX 3, but still a great game.
