That look on his face tells me the lack of oxygen from blimp riding has taken its toll on his sanity.
I think the woman was very wise not to trust that fellow. Just think about it. This is a crashing airship in Shitropolis. There is no major danger, because a disaster like this is bound to attract at least a dozen superheroes, any of which will save the day before anything serious happens. So why would this guy want to jump rather than wait for the inevitable rescue? To avoid the heroes. And why would he want that? Because he is a villain, obviously!
Thanks to LaserPony, they have an extremely good “crashing Zeppelin” response time
I know the LoSRHs’ insurance covers blimps but does that include zeppelins? There is a difference and I’m sure insurance companies will point it out
Depends on if they got regular insurance or plot insurance.
But if their insurance covers airships, then it doesn’t matter if it’s a blimp, zeppelin or dirigible.
How about aerostats?
I’m impressed, this actually makes sense.
Actually, I’m more impressed that she had enough sense not to trust him, something very weird in Shitropolis, totally.
Hmm… Eye shape, nose, mouth, chin.
Relative of GG…?
someone watched Aladdin recently?
Wow way to run a guy down right after he died.
In a superhero universe without seeing the body? Apparently.
Or died and is up and about next week. Superhero universe and everything.
Oh come on! This is a superheroic reality! And a crashing zepplin is as dranatikc ass all-get-out! If she had gone with the guy they would have landed safely and uninjured in a slightly embarrassing and compromising position – probably on a moving truck filled with mattresses.
As it is, he isn’t really dead, but recovering in an underground lab after being converted into a killer cyborg. And he will remember her betrayal and break out in a Roaring Rampage of Revenge.
Happens every other Tuesday in Shitropolis.
Yup, but Wednesday is undead night and Thursday is mad science, Friday, well either you know or don’t need to know…
And with Friday… if you don’t already know, trust me, you don’t want to know. I thought I wanted to know and they told me… and now I tell the rest of you, you don’t want to know.
>>” they would have landed safely and uninjured in a slightly embarrassing and compromising position – probably on a moving truck filled with mattresses.”
This is a superhero comic, not a manga/anime!
(sorry, I don’t know how to use the quotes like some guys have done before.)
When Gwenpool used the Narrative Imperative to survive, she did land on a truck full of ducks.
That awkward moment when while having just pressed the send button, you realize …
Soooooo … what exactly was that supposed to say, then?
It’s about what you get when autocorrect gives you a duck.
A trudge full of Dulce? That doesn’t even mace any séance.
And there is the fact that it would have taken 30 minutes to crash, and the impact was probably undistinguishable from a normal landing.
Well, she came out walking, if you know the saying regarding landings…
That reminds me of a great line in what was otherwise a rather horrible movie, Street Fighter, from 1994:
Chun Li: You and your bullies were driven back by farmers with pitchforks! My father saved his village at the cost of his own life. You had him shot as you ran away! A hero … at a thousand paces.
Bison: I’m sorry. I don’t remember any of it.
Chun Li: You don’t remember?
Bison: For you, the day Bison graced your village was the most important day of your life. But for me, it was Tuesday.
Raul Julia was this movie’s only redeeming aspect. :/
My thoughts exactly. He was an amazing Bison. Shame about the rest of the cast.
It’s funny how often you get stuff like that, in the most horrible non-indie movies. They’ll get one solid, standout actor who absolutely nails his/her part, and then they toss that performance into a septic tank.
I think it was a film that had an awareness that had awful material to work on, if you look at the backstory of street fighter and try to make a faithful movie adaption there’s going to be a struggle given any film can’t pander to the core base alone, it has to open itself to other consumers to get that money.
I think the film had some other rare moments then just raul’s performance. the whole ‘Quick change the channel’ from zangieff made me chuckle.
Incidentaly Raul’s Bison isn’t a faithful adaption to what we know of him from the games, but his perfomance and take as a blatantly delusional dictator is just fun too watch.
Despite it being eye rolling at times (kylie as cammy?!) I won’t fault the film for the way it took the source material given how ‘legend of chun li’ fared that advertised itself as serious and all that. (A film that got pulled in so many cinemas that I had to watch it online.)
I know people want a serious and quote “realistic” SF with A list actors etc but the SF material is so nonsensical it will be able to meet that kind of expectation.
I’ve seen movies with worse source material which turned out far better. Hell, there were a few Street Fighter anime-movies which turned out far better. When you have paper-thin source-material, you have more freedom to add to it.
I’m not saying that they should have pandered to the fan-base, rather that they did an absolutely shit job of opening up the franchise to other viewers. As several respected film-critics have said, the best way to make a good franchise-movie is to be respectful of the source material (what little of it there was, in this instance); tell a good story; and ignore the slobbering, die-hard fans.
Sure, there were a few good one-liners and very brief, good scenes, salted very conservatively throughout the movie, but you get that with almost any movie. They started with a very shaky core, casting Jean-Claude Van Damme as the quintessential American, military bad-ass, which is not a good sign that it’s going to go well from thereon. That casting decision was much worse than the one for Cammy. As you could anticipate from that start, the movie as a whole was a train-wreck, with the exception of Raul Julia’s performance, as Nordmann said.
Dude must’ve toughed out the Escaping Crashing Airships 101 exam.
Everyone knows you wait until it’s almost hit the ground before jumping out. And by jumping out, I mean stepping off onto the ground while examining your fingernails.
And then walk away from the crash, without looking back at the explosion.
With hair/coat/cape/scarf/etc blowing in the wind, of course.
Only if your the gritty anti-hero type
Blimps or zeppelins don’t pop like balloons, the gas pressure is too low, so unless there’s a very large hole in the envelope, the descent to the ground would be less like a brick and more like a feather.
Only says crashing, not falling, so it could be about to collide with a building or mountain, conceivably.
Or about to explode. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P3zW5LXUGVA
Depending on the damage and rate of deflation, and total weight of the craft, they can still fall at quite lethal velocity.
It turned out he did not have the power to fly, although it appears his necktie does.
Perhaps what killed him was another incident like the one with the flying ring.
The necktie has the power of flight. No, it doesn’t make the person who was wearing it fly. It flies by itself and holds up the person wearing it … oops.
“oops” what? Don’t leave me hanging… o_O… ooooh!
I guess that’s why he didn’t want to hang around.
And yet, he ended up doing it anyway.
Oh hang on… never mind.
Dude, I can only hang on for so long. This thing is really restrictive.
I mean, I’ll technically continue hanging on to it, but I won’t be happy about the how.
Good job the girl didn’t trust him, i wouldn’t be trusting some stranger, espacilly when in the second frame he looks to be high on acid. I’m more willing to trust Richard Warlock then that naive hopeful!
