2021.12.05 17:46 NealKenneth The multi-verse is Marvel's way of being as cheap and lazy as possible. It's not for story or artistic reasons, or any other good reason.
On the one hand, there are certain characters for whom a multi-verse fits their story, usually because they are designed to function that way from the beginning. Examples of these include Doctor Who, Doctor Strange, The Fantastic Four or in general any series where time travel is a fundamental and recurring function of the story (like Back to The Future.)
On the other hand, there are multi-verses that are created simply because a character becomes popular, so the company who owns them wants to cash in on it as much as possible.
The MCU is the second of those two. The idea of taking your friendly, neighborhood Spider-Man and putting him through the multi-verse blender is an abomination. Maybe for an animated movie or two somewhere off to the side, that's fine. But to take your AAA character, that is supposed to be the regular, everyman, down-on-your-luck guy - and setting him at the nexus of a multi-versal conflict was done for one purpose, and one purpose only. To make money. And that's exactly how the movie is going to feel.
As you sit in the cinema, it is going to be blatantly obvious to you that all they are doing is putting product on a conveyor belt. Corners will be cut left and right. The writing will be empty and meaningless. You will be expected to care about conflict, not because it's set up in the story, but simply because you recognize these characters from other things. Earlier, better films mostly. And some Doc Ock's arms will somehow look less real than they did 20 years ago, and Sandman too. Probably because they figure "who cares, the movie's going to make money no matter what so why spend budget on effects"
But buy the collector's edition toys and all that. Share the memes on social media, fellowkids. Just do as Disney tells you.
Disney's issue as the MCU got bigger and bigger is that it was hard to write an interconnected story, and that hiring the actors back was expensive. Sony also wanted in on the action. Disney wanted Spider-Man, but they didn't want to share money with Sony. So they had an idea - "hey, why not a multi-verse?"
And that's all it was. Not an artistic choice, or some storytelling inspiration. It was just money.
And yet, why not? Because there's all the fans, arfing like seals, slapping their flippers together as though this is all they could ask for. It's embarrassing. Spider-Man is prime rib, but they are selling him to you as the McRib, and you're clapping.

I am a visitor from Northern California (feel free to boo and hiss, ha ha) who has a passion for midcentury antiques, like 1930s to early 1970s. What are the best stores for this kind of thing in the LA area? (Willing to go as far north as Burbank, as far east as San Bernardino, as far west as the Coast and as far south as Laguna Niguel.)
NOTE: I am looking for smaller items, as I can't fit large furniture pieces in my tiny Ford Focus for the drive home.

2021.12.05 17:46 Steroidbombe Hat jemand verstörende Filme?
Ich liebe es Horrorfilme zu schauen. Am meisten mag ich die, die wenig bis keine Jumpscares haben. Ich liebe es verstörende Filme zu gucken, bei denen man nach dem Film 5 Minuten lang regungslos sitzt und sich denkt „wow, WTF war das“ Ich fand die Filme the shining, Hereditary, Come and see sehr Gut. Kann mir jemand gute Filme empfehlen, die wirklich mit der Psyche rumspielen?

2021.12.05 17:46 JBeazle Can Gas furnace pre-heat make A/C evap coil fail early?
I have an updraft Bryant gas furnace. On top of it is an evap coil for the A/C.
I have only lived here 2 years, the house and unit was built in 2009. The evap coil has been replaced in 2012, 2016 and 2019.
I noticed the gas furnace has a long pre-heat time where the furnace is on (gas is burning, but it has not called for the Fan yet so its getting pretty warm. Any other ideas what would kill an evap coil every 3 years? Could it just be Airtron fleecing the prior old owners who paid for annual inspections?

2021.12.05 17:46 Vibe_Check3r Lion battery questions
So I just got a new krytac and the guy at the counter recommended me this lithium ion Titan battery (3000mAh, 11.1v) and I was confused about things like discharge because the manual is telling me not to go about the discharge rate, do I have to worry about that with my krytac? My charger is also a liPo charger, can I use that for my lithium ion battery? I also read that I need to store this battery when it's at 50%, not sure what that means. Is there anything else I should know?
