I've got this mental picture of the old kings entering pacts with the frost giants or something. Or Moses showing up with his big exploit guide in tow in exhange for meatballs.

Damn that Moses, always speedrunning the Red Sea and glitching naysayers into the landscape.

Whoa whoa whoa forget that above stuff here is a REAL WTF

I watched a show with a character... who had a prosthetic leg...

And it wasn't to meet a "Inclusiveness" quota or a plot point.

What the Heck!?!

Was it Star Wars?

No it was Thunderbirds are Go

Starwars? PFT! yeah freeken right.

---

Thunderbirds Are Go also has another WTF for me...

In that the second season villain has an... Excessively "awesome" theme...

I mean it is a great theme but I first heard it and I was like "Wait are the Angels of the Apocalypse coming?"... For a Tech villain, it is so out of place.

Ever have this situation where you are watching a show and it is getting close to its ending...

and you end up begging for it to have a good worthwhile ending while you know in your heart it won't?

Edit: Ahuh yep... The show just bent over backwards to give itself a stupid dumb happy ending it didn't deserve... bashed logic over the head and made the main character not only a manipulator in the worst sense by dang near psychic.

Edit Edit: Ohh goodness the ending just keeps getting worse and worse... No consequences and they even reverse consequences...

And I LOVE big dumb happy endings... But you CANNOT set up a story like this where a character is driven to something beyond all logic, control, and morality and have the result be that nothing was lost and they lived happily ever after...

Doctor Strange (at least outside that movie) was always a little dumb because at the end of the day he can solve basically any problem by pulling magic bullshit out of his ass.  Because his superpower is just "Magic".

Ok Doctor Strange, Mr. Fantastic, and Superman are in a very similar situation.

In that when they are handled by bad writers... they have a magic wand that will solve all their problems.

However... let me tell you... what I have to tell people about Superman all the time.

His villains aren't bank robbers...

They're the American people!
Down with Superman!  Down with Superman!
So here's a WTF:  I saw Batman Vs Superman and kinda liked it :P
I had a lot of trouble following it at points (who the heck was that guy in the collapsing building Bruce Wayne called dad??), and certain things seemed contrived or poorly paced, but I still liked it.

I was expecting to roll my eyes at Wonder Woman but her fighting style won me over.  Shield combat is cooool.
I wish the batmechasuit and batmobile sections had been longer (less parties more fighting) but eh.
Heck if I ignore the parts that didn't make sense (It being a comic movie, plus I never saw Man of Steel), I just really enjoyed it!
Maybe I have a soft spot for Humanity Fuck Yeah :P  I've always been that "Batman just needs preparation time!" guy.

Deadpool blew it out of the water of course, but that goes without saying :P

hm, I think the new ghostbusters is in the redbox too...

WTF invoking way to start the day #N+1: Being told people are coming over to stay for a few days the day before they arrive. When half the house is approaching a disaster area (I've been sick-ish-er than normal lately, so maintenance has largely been left to other house people, which, uh. Doesn't work anymore.).

Like. Why did y'all not see fit to mention this, say, a week ago? Or at least a day or two? No, it doesn't matter that they're close enough a mess isn't really a problem. If it was just a bit of a mess it wouldn't be. It's not. Or wasn't this morning, anyway. Fair amount's already been shifted somewhere else (mostly the garbage, tbh -- I'm not quite in purge mode* but it's getting close).

*That's the point where more things get set of fire than are already set of fire, and the possibility of generations old family heirlooms ending up in the trash increases substantially.

Origin Story Syndrome?

1/3 normal alter ego, 1/3 normal alter ego but having gained superpowers, 1/3 campy super hero utilizing all their powers under their new super identity
Add some flashbacks, 3rd person narration, market researched humour, snarky wise-cracking sidekick
Pointless romantic interest that never achieves a conclusive ending with their partner to avoid bogging down sequels with humanity
BBEG is either eye candy who becomes frenemy with hero for sequels, or is completely irredeemable and causes their own death
Superpower gets added to hero becuz
Character who the main character is emotionally invested in tragically dies so that the main character has a reason to be the superhero

There you go, origin story syndrome
Then add capeshit cliches to double down on the cancer to have a capeshit origin story baby that wastes more time on tragic backstory than story; the deliberate choice for franchise building vs telling a story

Well that explains why Cinematic Marvel Universe Falcon sucks so much...

At first I thought they were going to give him a bit more of a military edge... but nope... Blaxploitation.

It also explains why both Thor movies aren't about Thor.
