Befitting a wide-spanning criminal syndicate with plans of world domination, Team Rocket’s headquarters boasted a very impressive set of training rooms.

This was to ensure that every agent of the organization had some experience in a variety of areas and climates, to better ensure their success in the field.

Comic Book Review: Klaus
Comic Book Review: Klaus
A Wondrous Fantasy Reimagining of a Holiday Icon

Once upon a time, there was a jolly old man dressed in red, who delivered presents to children all over the world on his magic sleigh pulled by flying reindeer.
His name was Santa Claus.
Over the years, this jolly old elf with a belly that jiggled like a bowl full of jelly has had many, many stories told about who he was and how he came to be.
Klaus, by Grant Morrison and Dan Mora, is one of the most recent.
And, let me tell you, this definitely isn’t your regular Santa Claus…
Once upon a time – and a place – there was a man. A man named “Klaus.”
A big, badass-looking man with skill as a hunter and forester, Klaus's story opens with him arriving at the medieval town of Grimsvig. While he knew the place as a happy and prosperous town with bright and merry celebrations at Yuletime, Klaus is shocked to discover that Grimsvig has become a dreary, oppressiv

Comic Book Review: Hillbilly
Comic Book Review: Hillbilly
A Brilliant, Gritty Appalachian Fantasy Yarn

“There is but two facts of which I am sure. Today is Tuesday, and a witch is gonna die.”
So says Rondel, the main character of Eric Powell’s moody, brilliant fantasy adventure.
Hillbilly is a unique fantasy comic, in large part because of its setting. Taking place in a fantasy equivalent of the Appalachian Mountain area, Hillbilly takes many familiar conventions of the genre and breathes new life into them with this concept.
Hillbilly is a comic with a very simple premise, one that is displayed at the beginning of nearly every issue.
“There are many stories of Rondel the wandering hillbilly. This is but one.”
Rondel is a drifter, walking from place to place.
He fights evil and slays witches.
He is armed with the Devil’s Cleaver, a gigantic cleaver said to have been taken from the table of Satan himself, and thus possessing tr

Comic Book Review: The Goon
Comic Book Review: The Goon
A Genre-Busting Epic of Zombie-Slaying Proportions

Written and drawn by Eric Powell, The Goon is one of those rare comic books that has the distinct pleasure of being delightfully hard to adequately describe.
The main character is only known as “Goon,” a musclebound former circus brat who is the number-one enforcer of the mysterious mob boss Labrazio. Goon is at war for control of the city, fighting against the nameless Zombie Priest, who directs his undead hordes from his tower stronghold on Lonely Street.
With his loudmouthed, pint-sized, murderous best friend Frankie, Goon takes on zombies, robots, aliens, giant communist cephalopod armies, pie-eating Skunk Apes, and mad scientists... mainly with his fists.
Any description that I can give you about The Goon is one that will inevitably fall short of the real thing, but I’ll do my best anyway.
The Goon is a pitch-black absurd comedy: a comic wher

Book Review: The Last Wish
Introducing The Witcher

The first book in the series that inspired the international bestselling video games The Witcher, Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski's The Last Wish is a collection of stories about the exploits of Geralt of Rivia.
Geralt is a "witcher": a wandering slayer of monsters. He is a mutant, his body transformed to superhuman effectiveness by a steady diet of special herbs and poisons, as part of the brutal training he underwent as a boy. He is a sorcerer, using potions and basic spells to assist in his line of work. And he is a cunning and merciless warrior, armed with two swords - one of iron, for human enemies, and one of silver, for monstrous and magical enemies.
Geralt's sole purpose is to slay the monsters that plague the world. Werewolves, manticores, griffons, leshys, rusalkas, and more.
But not all that is monstrous is evil. And not everything that is fair is good...
And in every fairy tale, there may

Captain Marvel Review
The bane of the MCU, my ass. During my spring break, I went into the theater to determine whether most of the negativity surrounding Captain Marvel was accurate or inaccurate in reflecting the movie's overall quality. I chose to reserve judgement on the movie until I actually saw it; now that I have, I have decided the movie is better than the people bashing it made it out to be. Many said the MCU was doomed to reach an all-time low with this movie, but they didn't. Instead, it meets the quality standards I have enjoyed with previous entries into the MCU and succeeded in becoming a worthy addition to the franchise.
Now before I talk about my overall thoughts about the movie, I would like to say that even if you guys don't enjoy the movie, there is one aspect that everyone will appreciate. As you know, Marvel went and developed a new opening that they have used in a lot of their movies, featuring the many heroes of the MCU before showing the logo. This time, they chose to display nothin

Just got home from Captain Marvel.
And I had a really good time. :D
Hope to see Captain Marvel with my dad tomorrow. If I do, I'll let you guys know what I think of it... 
(Just wish I could get some of my other movie reviews done too...)
So, season two of Black Lightning just finished up. Gotta say, I quite enjoyed it. Definitely interested to see what they'll do next come Season Three, especially since this show keeps leaning more and more into drawing on The Outsiders and all. 
Also, having just watched the newest episode of Supergirl… man, Jon Cryer does do a great job as Lex Luthor. Really got a kick out of his performance :D
Working on my write-up about The Dark Knight Rises, and I just gotta say this right here and now...
John Blake figuring out Batman's secret identity just because he "recognized a look" in Bruce Wayne's eyes, is incredibly, appallingly, unforgivably stupid and lazy writing. 
Well, rather, I've been watching it for a while now. To be specific, I started back in the summer, when my dad and I discovered reruns of it on MeTV on Saturday nights, and came in around the middle of Season Two. Rapidly it became part of our weekend, watching the campy adventures of Adam West and Burt Ward's hysterically straight-laced Batman and Robin, and all the gloriously silly villains they would go up against. :lol: And of course, that theme song...



Then for Christmas I got a collection of the entire show as a present, and recently my dad and I started watching the series right from the very beginning.

And how does it compare to the episodes we'd watched previously?

It's a very surprising experience, to be sure. XD

- For one thing, while the show was never NOT silly, the first season's episodes do have something of an "edge" to them. Especially in the pilot episode with The Riddler. For one, Riddler's scheme involves some fairly sound (for a comic book) planning, namely in that he tricks Batman into arresting him so he can sue him for assault. (Also, the famous "Batusi" dance that this show made? The result of Riddler effectively slipping Batman a mickey, intending to damage his reputation by getting him drunk in public. Wow...)

- Also, I really have to say this too... Frank Gorshin as the Riddler is freaking intense. With his psychotically manic giggle and gleefully wicked mannerisms - there's a genuinely unsettling moment in the pilot where the Riddler picks up a scalpel and leers at a captive Robin - this is an iteration of the Prince of Puzzles who honestly comes off as a bigger psychopath than The Joker himself. o_0 

- In fact, funnily enough, compared to several of the other major Bat-villains, Mister J actually comes off as very much a lesser threat. One particularly humorous instance of this, especially in hindsight of later incarnations of the character, is when the Joker (believing his latest death trap to have worked) orders to shut off the flow of poisonous gas to it, because he doesn't want it to leak and hurt any nearby civilians. Very conscientious, Mister Joker! :lol: 

- It was very interesting to watch the first Mr. Freeze episode for a lot of reasons. One of the major ones being that this version of the character, while still a humorous pun-spouting mad scientist, almost feels like something of a prelude to the tragic villain incarnation made famous by Batman the Animated Series. Mainly because his motivation here isn't just "make money off some wacky scheme" but is along the lines of "get revenge on the man who knocked me into the freezing chemicals"... which, here, is Batman himself surprisingly enough. Also, at one point in his episode Mr. Freeze makes a short speech about how he can never walk in the sun or hold another's hand again, which feels to me that Paul Dini was taking notes when he wrote "Heart of Ice" for the animated series.

- One thing that I really didn't expect when I saw Julie Newmar's Catwoman? I really didn't expect to see her set an honest-to-Christ tiger on Batman, or try to feed Robin to a pair of tigers either. Seriously, that was something else... a lot of this show is so often campy and low-budget, but let me tell you, the sight of Batman (well, okay, the stunt guy dressed as Batman) wrestling a goddamned tiger was pretty damn suspenseful. XD

- Another villain that really surprised me watching this show? The Mad Hatter. The episode with him is a lot less goofy in its humor compared to say, Joker or Penguin, and his villainous goal is really freaking disturbing. It's not some crazy get-rich scheme or robbery, it's... that he wants to make Batman and Robin into hats. D-: As in, he literally wants to capture them, and flay them alive on a conveyor belt to make into hats as part of his revenge. That's pretty hardcore. Probably the major reason he only had two appearances across the entire series' run, now that I think about it...

Anyway, just wanted to share some of these loosely-connected thoughts, that I've had over the past few weeks of watching some of these episodes. Been having a ball with this show so far, and hope to continue enjoying it in the future...

Same bat-time, same bat-channel. ;)
Domino's Disaster

A Comedy of Error

By Scholarly-Cimmerian

(****)

Befitting a wide-spanning criminal syndicate with plans of world domination, Team Rocket’s headquarters boasted a very impressive set of training rooms. These training centers were carefully designed to mimic a real location in the outside world, from a simple grassy field to an entire section of city block. This was to ensure that every agent of the organization had some experience in a variety of areas and climates, to better ensure their success in the field.

In theory, this was a sound idea. Team Rocket’s ideology was about using Pokémon to seize power over the entire world. Making sure that its agents had practice in multiple types of battlegrounds was a perfectly sensible concept.

But in practice, however… sometimes there were mishaps.

Accidents happened. Sometimes agents were injured, or the training room was damaged…

And sometimes, on very rare occasions, somebody made a complete and utter idiot of themselves.

This is an account of one of those special occasions.

(****)

The incident took place in one of Team Rocket’s more “unique” training rooms, designated Room Nineteen. This room was unusual because, in comparison to the other settings used by Team Rocket, Room 19 was constructed to resemble an old-fashioned grand theater; with balconies, stage rigging, everything that one could imagine.

It was massive, and held much potential for different agents: Room 19 could be used to train larger Pokémon by having them navigate the rows of seating; the wide, open space of the theater set also offered plenty of room for practice Pokémon battles…

However, on this occasion, Room Nineteen was being used for another purpose – to test the acrobatic skills of a select group of Team Rocket agents.

(****)

A slender figure backflipped across the stage in a series of acrobatic handsprings. Finishing the gymnastic routine off with an impressive midair twirl, Agent 009 – or “Domino” as she was also known – flipped to a standing position and snapped off a cocky salute to an imaginary audience.

“Ta-da!” she beamed, giving a sweet (and smug) smile to the two other agents in the room.

...

Agent Oakley yawned, making no attempt to cover it up.

Her partner, Annie, made a show of ignoring Domino in favor of inspecting the back of her hand.

The flips and tricks might have been impressive at first, if it weren’t for two things:

One, that Domino was a domineering and arrogant little you-know-what, who liked hiding her nastiness behind an utterly obnoxious façade of perky cuteness. (Being a conniving you-know-what was one thing, but at least Annie and Oakley didn’t pretend to be sweet about it.)

And two… Domino had started showing off as soon as they’d arrived in Room 19 for this practice session, and had shown no sign at all of slowing down. There was still twenty minutes left before time was up, but it might as well have been twenty years, to have to put up with Giovanni’s perfect little agent.

Domino put her hands on her hips, still keeping her smile in place.

“Aw, don’t be jealous, ladies,” she said in a chipper tone, “Not everyone can be graceful all the time!”

Oakley scoffed.

Annie lowered her hand and glanced up at Domino, with a little smirk curling her lips.

“Oh, Tulip, don’t ever think that we’re jealous of you,” she said in an overly-polite voice.

Domino laughed sweetly, but there was venom in her eyes.

“Just as long as we understand each other,” she stated in that poisonously perky way of hers, as she hopped and skipped into another gymnastics display.

“Don’t ever forget!” she called, as she flipped back across the stage,

“That I!”

She leapt up, and sprung off the wall, and cartwheeled away.

“Am!”

She leapt into another midair spin.

“The best!”

And then another set of flips.

“Most graceful!”

With one final high leap, she sprang into the air to touch down for a grand finale.

“Team Rocket Agent, ever—”

*THWACK!!*

Domino’s big proclamation was suddenly interrupted, by her feet coming down on the head of a stray push broom that had been left lying around. The landing caused the broom’s handle to snap up, hitting her right in the face.

Domino yelped in startled surprise, and stumbled back, legs kicking as she tried to regain her balance.

*Clang!*

In her fumbling, Domino’s left foot now found itself trapped inside a sturdy metal bucket. The agent growled in frustration and embarrassment, as she hopped up and down on her other foot; kicking out to try and dislodge the bucket from her foot.

Annie and Oakley blinked in unison, and exchanged a quick glance – reluctant to look away too long from… whatever it was that they were witnessing.

“Come on, come on,” Domino muttered as she leapt back, “almost---”

“Ahh!”

Domino’s hopping had done nothing at all to remove the bucket, except to send her leaping backwards across the stage.

And in doing so, she had just bumped into a tall and heavy wooden ladder, causing it to sway back and forth… and then finally fall.

Domino did manage to hop clear of the falling ladder… Although given what happened next, perhaps she should have just taken the blow.

The wooden ladder pitched forward, hitting a couple of ropes that were keeping some sandbags suspended above the stage. Most of the ropes were old and starting to fray, and easily broke from the unexpected impact of the falling ladder.

There were several loud *snaps!* and then rope was flying through the air as it went taut and sped after the plummeting sandbags.

“…What?” Annie mouthed.

It was just then, that Oakley noticed where Domino’s latest effort to get the bucket off her left foot had gotten her…

With her right foot in the midst of a coil of rope…

A coil of rope, which was attached to one of the falling sandbags.

Only when it was too late, did Domino realize that.

“BWAAAAHHH!!” Agent 009 let out a most unprofessional shriek as she was yanked off her feet and sent hurtling into the air. As the sandbag crashed to the ground, Domino gracelessly flipped over once, twice…

Before plummeting back to earth.

“AHHH!!”

And, with an almighty crash and deafening racket, Domino landed, in a big pile of assorted props and scenery… that, ironically, she herself had stacked there, to clear the stage for her earlier gymnastics.

Dust settled over the aftermath of the scene. All was quiet in Training Room Nineteen.

Annie closed her mouth, which had fallen open in disbelief at some point during the whole chain reaction. She wasn’t sure when; maybe when the bucket had gotten involved?

Oakley coughed.

Then, she snickered.

“Heh…”

The pile of props and stuff shifted, and Domino became visible as she emerged. The bucket was still on her foot, sticking out from beneath an old-style coat.

“DON’T YOU DARE LAUGH AT ME!!” Domino shrieked, her face purple with rage. Furious, she kicked and thrashed in the effort to stand up and get out of the junk pile—

And it was this movement, that finally launched the bucket from her foot.

It soared up into the air as she’d kicked it off – did a graceful turn over in midair—

And plunged back downwards.

*CLANG!!*

Where it landed on Domino’s head, coming down over her face like a helmet.

That did it. That was the final breaking point.

“HAH!!” Oakley let out a shout of laughter…

And then, she and Annie nearly collapsed, both of them positively howling with laughter.

Domino fumed, too humiliated and angry to even attempt to form words. Trying to shut out the gleeful cackling of the two agents, she slowly reached up and strained at tugging the bucket off her head.

Doing so, however, accomplished nothing except to make the laughter get even laughter, and so finally she gave up, and put her (still bucketed) face in her hands.  

And all the while, Annie and Oakley laughed their asses off.

Oakley had nearly fallen over from the force of her guffawing, and was keeping herself up mostly through the support of a crate that she’d grabbed. Her face was flushed bright red as she feebly pointed and laughed at the heap of junk with its bucket-crowned Agent 009…

And Annie, for her part, had fallen over on her back, kicking her legs helplessly in the air as she clutched her ribs and nearly screamed with laughter.

“Ow! Oww!” she managed to get out, tears running down her cheeks as she half-cackled, half-shrieked, “I can’t breathe!”

But the pain was worth it.

Hell, it would have been worth anything.

Annie and Oakley had gotten front-row seats to the absolute best show that this old theater would EVER put on…

“The Fall of Domino.”
Domino's Disaster
Hey, all. And welcome to an old request that I finally got the courage to upload to the sight and post. 

This comes courtesy of :icontherisenchaos: whose Pokemon picture "Domino's Empty Boasts" (found here, btw www.deviantart.com/therisencha…) eventually got my brain rolling on the idea of Domino having an epic pratfall in the midst of bragging about her skills. I told TheRisenChaos about it, they thought it sounded hilarious and I agreed to write up a scene based on said idea. ^_^

So yeah, that's basically what this little story is all about. Just a (hopefully) humorous piece of a boastful character having a seriously epic fail... one that was majorly inspired by old-time cartoons. Everything about this fic, from "Room Nineteen" to the epic chain-of-falling-objects was inspired by a bunch of classic Looney Tunes cartoons that used gags involved big theaters and such. :D

On a final note, I have to extend a HUGE thank-you to TheRisenChaos for being so patient about me taking so damn long to post this. I'd started it last February, but going into March I experienced something of an upheaval in my life that led me to delay work on the story, until I finally completed it around May or so. And since then, sadly, this story just sat in my computer files until I finally worked up the courage to upload it in full to this site. So thanks for being a good sport about all of this, Risen. I appreciate it so much.
