Cobra Commander VS. Serpentor: Who's More Stupid As A Cartoon Villain?

G.I.Joe had two leaders for Cobra. One was Cobra Commander and the other is Serpentor. When Cobra's higher ups got fed up with Cobra Commander's Yosemite Sam antics, they created Serpentor but the new leader wasn't any better. Who's more stupid? Let's take an assessment of both leaders of Cobra and how they did as hammy leaders.
Cobra Commander
Cobra Commander was the founder of the Cobra. In  the G.I.Joe movie, he was actually chosen by Golobulus but he seemed to have his own motives all the time. So I thought he's crazy and loopy but also scheming at the same time. He's sort of the Megatron of G.I.Joe especially both share the same trait of "retreat" and threw tantrums at their subordinates. Difference is Cobra Commander's really that stupid compared to Destro who's a more intelligent version of Starscream. He could have fired Destro years ago but he just kept the same threat to his power intact. For that, he's really pretty stupid t…

Why The Destruction Of Alderaan Was A HUGE MISTAKE!

I remembered Star Wars: A New Hope when the Death Star was completed. I would say that Grand Moff Wilhuff Tarkin's biggest mistake was to think that the Death Star alone would make sure that the empire would be in check. Palpatine was a little bit more smart to make sure that Tarkin kept an eye on Vader and vice versa considering that either one of them might use the weapon against him. 
The problem with destroying Alderaan is plan and simple: it's an overkill. It's like trying to blow up an entire forest to kill one's hunt instead of finding a logical way to kill one's prey. It could have been enough to execute Princess Leia Organa as an example for her betrayal of the Imperial Senate. But no, Grand Moff Tarkin got too confident and decided to blow off Alderaan anyway. 
Not only is the destruction of the whole planet an overkill but it's also destroying a source of income for the empire. Would the empire just simply chose to execute figures in Alderaan who ha…

My Rage Awakens: Is It Me Or Is Disney Really Ruining Almost Everyone's Childhood Whenever They Buy Franchises?!

Make no mistake. I really, REALLY hate Disney now or do I? I want to give my thoughts on the devastating events that really affected my childhood. Last 2009 was the year of Samurai Sentai Shinkenger but it was also the year F***ing Disney bought Marvel. 2002 was the year when Disney acquired the rights to Power Rangers and ever since then I have no reason to watch Power Rangers. Disney gave me reasons to go away from Power Rangers. Now it's giving me a good reason to move away from Marvel and Star Wars. So what's next?
Disney ruined Power Rangers especially with the Kalish era
I don't deny that I'm not a Power Rangers fan so this wouldn't be so much of a fair analysis. But I could at least give reasons why Disney gave me good reasons not to watch Power Rangers. Whether it's the Bruce Kalish era or whatever I'm having some good reasons not to watch Power Rangers. What I didn't like about Disney's Power Rangers era would be it's too rushed to the …

Tommy's Dr. Evil Laugh VS. Burai's Terrifyingly Evil Laugh

Tommy laughs like Dr. Evil or Scott Evil in here. I always thought this laugh was forgettable. Lord Zedd's laugh was better than this. Lord Zedd may not be all sound like a killer but he made a memorable evil laugh for a cartoon villain.

On the other hand, Burai's evil laugh was really that terrifying. He sounded like a killer. It was such a bummer IMO that Burai's suit footage was taken and given Dr. Evil's corny evil laugh. I guess those American soccer moms just love to bitch too much don't they?

I Just Began Watching Juspion!

After the premier of Kyuranger (which I believe is a HUUUUGE leap for Super Sentai) I thought I'd try watching Juspion. The whole series is now completely subbed by Megabeast Empire subs. The story involves Juspion an alien who ends up landing into Planet Earth also known as the "home of the Mega Beasts". He travels a few worlds before reaching Earth.

Hikaru Kurosaki who guest starred in Bioman episodes 35-36 is the main actor. What's so sad is that his late wife Yuko Asuka died so soon. He showed a lot of great martial arts moves in Bioman so there was really no reason not to put him into the role of the superhero. So far, it's a very unusual Metal Hero series since he's using a giant robot to finish off giant monsters. Is it another attempt to do the Japanese Spiderman more tribute?

So far, I'm enjoying the show while waiting for weekly Kyuranger releases.

What If Kimberly Never Left And Kat Never Existed In Power Rangers?

Okay if you're a Kat fan just be careful because this article may be offensive. I'm just making a what if Amy Jo Johnson never left Power Rangers until later (though her move was pretty good for her career) and let's just think of what could have been done. Let's think of one what if that never happened. Let's just put a bit of a what if scenario. I just took the idea from Power Rangers Fanon.

MMPR Season 3... what if she never left!

Let's just say that after the incident where Lord Zedd and Rita Repulsa nearly killed her came to pass. This may start to change Kimberly from Tommy's damsel in distress (which was probably why Amy Jo left the set and I freaking don't blame her) to making her once again the girl who can stand on her own. She might actually give her obvious blunt attacks on Master Vile's disgusting nature or say, "Is that all the bad guys can do? Turn us back to kids? LAME!"

During the time Aisha leaves and Tanya gets her part …

Shinnok's Probably Based On The Fallen Elder God Tongtian Jiaozhu

Shinnok's backstory as a fallen Elder God may not only be inspired by Mara the god of sin and lust in Buddhism. I also thought one of character that may have also inspired the fallen Elder God's character.

The fallen Elder God Tongtian Jiaozhu whose name is translated as Heavenly Grandmaster. He's the younger brother of two Elder Gods namely Yuanshi Tianzun and Taishang Laojun. The fallen Elder God has been depicted as a prevalent antagonist in many legends and classic novels as well as some Wuxia series on TV. He's also the head of the Jie sect - the possible inspiration behind the Brotherhood of the Shadow.

While Shinnok may be more or less a Chinese version of the rogue Asgardian Loki but one can't deny Mortal Kombat seems to dwell on Chinese mythology. This is just my speculation but what do you think?

Frieza's Deadly Combination Of Childishness And Cruelty

I know Dragon Ball Z has Frieza as one of its most iconic villains if not the most iconic one. But there's some criticism I could offer towards Frieza's characterization. If there's one thing that I could say is that Frieza's actually pretty immature for somebody who's older than Vegeta. I think that one thing that Akira Toriyama may not want to admit is why Frieza's given a very small size. While it may be a message that looks can be deceiving considering that he does look harmless but there may be a bigger picture to that.

One can argue how cruel Frieza is but he's not exactly all that mature himself. Consider the fact that he frequently murders someone whenever he has temper tantrums, reacts negatively to criticism, whenever something defeats his ego or just any petty reason that leads this petty tyrant to go on rampage. Not so many people criticized him and lived to tell about it. When he realized that the Saiyans would one day be more powerful he dest…
