Hm...when did he make the jump from bad ass to Jokester?
When [Chris Yost/Brian Michael Bendis] wrote him?I don't know whether that's true or not, but it makes a damn good punchline ;)
Heh... I like that, Nagash... Leave it to BENDIS to take an established character and twist them to how he sees fit. If it was Yost, he probably would have just killed him off...Seriously though, JT, Pool was WAY closer to the character we see today in his second appearance, which was(I think)X-Force #2.
Lol @ Nagash, I didn't see that one coming at all.I just love how he was so bad ass in his first appearance and now he's swapping "Yo Mama" jokes with Spiderman. Big jump, that's like making Wolverine into Superman all of a sudden. Imagine Wolvie as an American icon.
You mean loud, obnoxious and no matter where you look, he's there imposing his beliefs?Yeah, I went there :PStill, I suppose it could be worse. He could be from French Canada... ;)Never been a fan of Deadpool anyway. He's not funny, and does just annoy me...
Heh, yeah I guess we Americans can be a bit on the annoying side, but that's only 'cause we're so great! :-) Oh, and btw, by insulting French Canada, you just went up like 20 coolness points in my book, Nagash!I guess I can see what you're saying about DP, but like any comedy character, he's kind of hit or miss. If you read the wrong DP books, you're apt to hate him, read the right ones, and you'll probably like him.It's hard to imagine Wolvie as an American icon, JT. Mainly because he's Canadian though! :p
Lmao, touche' to you both. I forgot Wolvie was Canadian, but when you really think about it, Canada is America Jr. Yeah, I went there! :P Americanada is all I gotta say about that.I agree with X (as usual) about Deadpool, I've read stuff where he was downright hilarious and other things where he's been awful, I think it really just depends on your definition of comedy and who's writing for him at that time.
Ha! I like it, let's keep ripping on Canada! Especially since I'm such a big hockey fan, I have a natural dislike for Canadians in general...
Then I know you loved when we beat them in Hockey on Sunday right? Lol
Oh man, you don't even know! For the record, the rematch is on Sunday, and it's for the gold medal. If the US beats those Canucks again, for the gold, IN Canada, I'll be happy for the rest of the year!
Woooooo Lets go USA. Man you know I'm gonna hoard this over every Canadian I know. Man, if we beat those dudes two weeks in a row AND win the gold medal I'll also be a happy man.
You know, after reading your comment, it sounds like you know a lot of Canadians, which would be REALLY weird! I can honestly say that I don't think I know any, that is unless I'm surrounded by a bunch of secret Canadians, which would also be kind of weird...I think if the US was to win that game tomorrow, the entire nation of Canada would go into a severe depression. Seriously. I think I read somewhere that 2/3 of the entire country of Canada watched the first game between us and them. I mean, they are just RABID about their hockey up there...
Dude I live in Detroit, we're the Border to Canada remember? Plus I went to wrestling school, and you know how many Canadians are wrestlers so yeah, I know a fair share.That just makes me wanna win even more, so we can rub it in their faces eh! :P Plus I know if they win Jericho will mention it in a promo, and I don't know aboot you :P but I'd love to take the one sport they have from them.
Oh yeah, I guess so... Luckily they usually don't travel too deeply into NY state. Let them stay up near Buffalo and away from me! Unfortunately, those damn Canadians went ahead and ruined my day by winning that game 3-2 in OT... Well, at least the US won the silver(which is WAY better then most people thought they'd do), and we won the most medals overall, so take THAT Canada!
Yeah I saw that, I guess we can let them have the one sport their good at, even though we beat them last week. Canada, aka America's dorky little brother. Lol
"Canada, aka America's dorky little brother. Lol" HA!!! I couldn't have said it better myself!
Ever wonder why all the Canadians come to America to get famous? BOOM! Just BLEW ya mind X, Just BLEW ya mind!!! *Dances in place*
Hell, if I lived up in Canada, I'd do anything be trying to move down here to the US too! What exactly is there to do up there besides play hockey and... Umm, huh... I guess play hockey.
Play hockey and throw snowballs. Hell I'd stay there at least for the free health care. Poor Canada, must suck to be only known for Hockey and Canadian Bacon aka Ham.
Yeah, I'd have to say that the best thing about Canada is their healthcare system... And if we were to EVER get that, those canucks wouldn't even have that to hold over our heads anymore!
Yeah, hopefully we can one friggin day. Canucks seems like an insult for some reason. I don't know why but I feel like a jerk when I say it lol.
I use the term Canuck to refer to Canadians every so often. I think it's kind of like the way the British refer to us as Yankees. Plus, there's nothing better then calling Canadians Mother Canuckers!
Lol That's why it sounded mean. Mother Canucker.. now I gotta use that line on someone. Good point, why do they call us Yanks anyway? I figure you'd be best to ask as a college man, well you or Nagash.
You know, I can't say I'm sure, and I'm pretty big on history... I know that Brits were using it as an insult during the Revolutionary War, and that the early Americans began to use it as a source of pride, better to be a Yank then a Loyalist to the Crown, or something like that. I'm not really sure why they thought the term Yank was an insult though...I do know that the Brits used the song, "Yankee Doodle" back in the day as an insult against us too, which is funny considering it's a pretty well known patriotic American song now. It was supposed to show how dumb/inefficient we Yanks were/are.Sorry about the quick history lesson there, but like I said, history(especially US history)has always been my favorite subject.
Lol I love how America just took an insult and made it into a compliment of sorts. That's pretty damn genius. I honestly didn't know any of that. I also forgot you were a big history buff. So is that JUST US History, or also world, or geological and etc.?
Yeah, leave it to us to take an insult and use it as a national identity! Well, I prefer US History, but I'm also pretty well versed in basic World History as well, especially depending on the timeframe. To be honest, my College Advisor keeps telling me that I should try to become a History Professor.
Would you wanna be a history professor? And would you need more years of school for that stuff? And wait, by professor does he mean collegiate level?
Well, I'd personally never want to be a teacher at a level lower then College... There's no way I'd be able to deal with being a HS or lower teacher... I can't stand kids!Yeah, if I was ever to be a Prof, I'd be a History prof, but since it would cost me more time in school, I don't see that happening... I'm at the point now where I just want my diploma so I can start a career somewhere!
I don't blame you, Hell some people in college still act like 8th graders but I know exactly what ya mean.So how far are you off from getting your diploma anyway?
"Hell some people in college still act like 8th graders" Yep, that is def true, but luckily for the most part people seem to be a little bit better behaved, especially since you actually have to pay to go there!Jeez, I think I'm about 2 semesters away from my Liberal Arts degree(about a year), but if I decide to stick around for my Accounting degree, that would prob be another year/year and a half.
That's cool, so do you go to like an internship from there or look straight for work, or how is that done?
Once I've got my diploma, I'm heading straight for a job... I'm pretty tight with my advisor, so when the time comes, I'll prob see what he recommends, because he has yet to steer me in the wrong direction.
That's whats up dude. You don't wanna be outta work looking for a job in your field, trust me. It's a nice vacation but it sucks after a while. So you would be a financial accountant?
Honestly? I have NO idea! :p Hopefully as I get closer to graduation I'll figure out my course of action, but for now, my main goal is to get that diploma and then worry about what job to go after later!
You should have quite a few choices when that time comes. I'm with you though dude, live in the now, worry about the later ... um... later.
