    I'll give them props, as much as I hate the show and it's humour, sometimes it has a gag that's pretty good.

    Just finished Batman Returns. 
    As much as I feel it strays too much into Burton's usual "dark, grim and weird" style too much, to the point it somewhat strays from a really good Batman movie to a weird as fuck Burton movie, for no particular reason, and on top of that, many plot points that go nowhere (namely, Batman's framing as a murderer and maniac that is never resolved, and by the end of the movie, Gordon is calling on him again with the Bat Signal), it's still a really good movie, and a good final outing for Keaton's Batman. That final scene with Bruce simply picking up a stray cat and taking care of it as a remembrance to Catwoman, who he believes dead is a nice final scene that wraps up the tragedy of the character.
    I really wish just some of Burton's needless darkness was removed, because it really does harm the movie in places. Things like Batman randomly sticking time bombs onto a random and regular mook just for the sake of "gee thats cool" despite the fact it actively harms a core portion of the character. You could argue it's inspired by the really original Batman comics, where he killed with a gun, but by this stage of the game, the Animated Series was out as well as several other pieces of media that had well established Batman as a character. Other things like how downright sick and disgusting Penguin is can be total overkill too. Things like eating a raw fish, or even in his death scene where he's coughing up huge amounts of green blood, etc. 
    In that regard, Returns and Forever, oddly enough feels like a dynamic similar to Batman and Joker. Two sides of the same coin. In both, there feels like there's a really good movie that explores the motivations and ideas of Batman in a new light, with the Batman>Penguin>Catwoman dynamic here, which has never been seen before this IIRC and Forever with the deconstruction of Bruce Wayne and his trauma, and things like Riddler a creep who idolizes Bruce Wayne and tries to show up and emulate him after being he feels he's been scorned by him. Even small things like Two Face at the end calling Bruce a true friend and wanted "true justice". That's nice.
    The issue is the same, but flipped for both. Forever is too camp for it's own good. Between the horrific writing for Chase, the over the top antics of Riddler, and especially Two Face, and everything else stupid in Forever that drags it down because it wants to be lighter for kids, Returns is the opposite. Here is an fantastic movie with great actors and good story with Batman character dynamics, and an interesting story of Batman himself being framed only to get dragged down because of Tim Burton trying to desperately shove in dark elements for the hell of it. Honestly a big reason Batman 89 is so good, it's the perfect counter-balance between them, especially with Joker since he constantly jumps between goofy and funny and dark and intimidating.

    I can’t believe we now live in an age where Mega Man has a school crush with an OC and they’re really running with this plot for Fully Charged. 
    I remember when Archie Mega Man covered something similar where Roll tried to hook up Rock and Tempo (Quake Woman), And apart from the fact that y’know, Tempo is actually well written and interesting, they subverted it entirely by having them both agree to not wish to be in a relationship but still remain friends. But nope, generic plot needed for Fully Charged I guess.

    If there's one thing I love about the Wily takeover on the MM Twitter account, it's the sheer fact it gives Wily a ton of personality. I know, might not be reflective of the game itself in terms of writing, but it reminded me quite a bit about Archie Wily. Goofy, vengeful, grovelling, and an underlying aspect of jealousy and self-justification, I thought it was excellent.
