    Super Sentai vs. the Arrowverse

    By Goldenforce772

    *In 2015, when we were plagued by the hated Power Rangers Dino Charge, I had made the decision to delve into the one super hero universe I never thought I would: Super Sentai, the universe that gave rise to the Power Rangers. For decades, I hadn't given Super Sentai a shot because of the enemies of democracy who were controlling it. While I have seen Abaranger, Dekaranger, Magiranger and Boukenger, I needed to see more of it. So I bought Zyuranger, the MMPR equivalent from Shout Factory, and I began my journey. What I had quickly discovered was that the storytelling of Super Sentai was far more complete than its Power Ranger counterpart and the characters seemed more interesting, with some exceptions. Then I journeyed on to Dairanger, Kakuranger, Ohranger, Carranger, Megaranger and now Gingaman, with Gogov and Timeranger to follow. I had made an oath when I started this to learn all I can about Super Sentai in order to conquer it. So far, my mission was and is succeeding perfectly. At around the same time, the world of prime time gave birth to its own super hero universe called the Arrowverse, which was based on the heroes of DC Comics. It began with Arrow, then spread to the Flash, Legends and then Supergirl. My preference of the heroes of this universe remained the White Canary, who had seen so much tragedy in her life, it isn't even funny. For the last couple of years, this universe had seem flawless. However, within the last year, cracks started showing in the armor of the Arrowverse with one stupid decision after another. First, the launch of a hero unrelated to this universe(Black Lightning), then giving super speed to someone who very clearly did not deserve it(Iris West-Allen). Even Supergirl started showing its flaws when it tried to address the issue of gun control by having the agents of the DEO use non-lethal weaponry, which was a sop to the gun control types who may watch the show. Now, I hear Legends is going to be excluded from this fall's crossover, which has me saying, "It may be time to look at other options, because this universe is faltering badly." To summarize, while Super Sentai is growing on me, my interest in the Arrowverse may be starting to shrink. Unless they correct course, I may be looking to DC's upcoming streaming service instead for my jollies as I ponder leaving the Arrowverse behind. I do not want to have to leave Green Arrow and co. behind, but when Stephen Amell hinted he was open to a crossover with Black Lightning, it made me sick to my stomach. For now, the heroes of the Super Sentai universe offer me the comfort I sorely lack from the CW's family of shows at the moment. Let's hope the Arrowverse stops its insanity before it's too late.

    Yesterday evening (11-10-18/11-11-2018) I was tweeting with a friend about my opinion regarding people leaving pets behind in disasters. Our general opinion was if someone is aware the fire could come their way or close enough, and/or might change direction, then they should begin preparing as soon as possible and not wait until an evacuation order. Often times when people wait, they put themselves, their family, and pets in danger.

     

    One person sent me a DM on Twitter and said "What if my dog runs off because she is scared and something falls on her killing her?". I answered telling her then it obviously wouldn't be her fault. Another person asked me to be more clear. I told him I spoke of those who had the chance to prepare earlier, but chose not to. If someone didn't have that chance, then the fault is on circumstances. That person then said he just wanted to be sure he understood correctly.

     

    Then this one enraged 19 year old girl came along.

    7r4ENNE.jpg

    She inserted herself into a conversation me and my friend Samus (@SamusAran2020 on Twitter). She accused me of attacking victims of the California fires and making fun of people's pets who died. For those of you reading, I invite you to look at my timeline on Twitter (@CaseyNewton_TL) and see for yourselves. There is nothing within my tweets that imply anywhere near what this teen girl was saying. She called me a wide range of names such as: r**a*d, b***h, wh**e, skank. She even told me to kill myself. She even said she should beat my a**. I blocked her. I didn't even respond. In total it was over 43 enraged tweets. I thought that was the end of it. I figured with all the nastiness, she'd get herself suspended quickly. I was wrong.

     

    This one random user DMed me a link to this one tweet that 19yr old girl posted. I thanked him and took a look.

    In looking at it I realized that this girl had taken a screenshot of one of her tweets and photoshopped it to look like it came from me. To cover herself she claimed it was an Iphone screenshot another user sent to her. I also took a look at her timeline. Apparently all those extremely vulgar and threatening tweets have been deleted by her. Just so she could try to play poor sweet innocent victim.

    This person first tweeted to my friend Samus here. She never answered. I advised her against it via DM because it seems like this girl is looking to pick a fight. She thanked me and said she had a response ready, but wasn't going to bother. So we continued our tweet conversation about how there's no excuse to leave pets behind. Samus was generally saying people who are aware of the fires should prepare as soon as possible  just in case it comes their way and shouldn't abandon their pets and no excuse to if they have the chance to prepare.

    The tweet that starts with "Prep before work" seems like she was trying to quote me. I have no tweet with those exact words. I checked the tweet and it wasn't in response to anything. In plain english, she was trolling and trying to involve Samus.

    In the 3rd one she tells another user that "they", meaning me and Samus told her to kill herself.I'd never say that to anyone even if I hated the, Neither would Samus. This is nothing more than an attempt to garner pity and attention to the obvious victim card she is trying to play.

    With the 4th tweet, she continues to play her victim card.

     

    I checked the Twitter page of the one  this 19 year old girl that this person was pulling a pity party with. Apparently he fell for it  hook line and sinker and took a page form this girl's book. He decided to post his  own tweet he posted, but only it didn't look he sent it. He made it seem like I sent it.

    He takes another page from this teen girl's book. He tries to involve my friend Samus. He continues to do so in another tweet.

    cra3n89.jpg

    Yeah. This guy fell for her fake victim act.

     

    I then checked out the twitter page for the one she said she got the screenshot from. I saw only one tweet to me.

    O0vjXoC.jpg

    It wasn't in response to anything. She just chose to tag me and Samus. Perhaps she was just trying to gain a response so she could just tag in that teen girl and her new male friend. Who knows?

     

     

    I see alot of things wrong here. This 19 year old girl doens't get a response to tweets and goes on a massive raging fit. She deletes tweets and tries to play the victim. She claims I told her to kill herself. She even posted a photoshopped tweet. The man she played the victim party to fell for it and followed suit. He photoshopped a tweet to make it look like I said something I didn't. Why didn't either of them archive these supposed tweets via "archive.is"? On a PC, you just go to the address. If a person is on a phone, they can go to it in their phone's web browser. So there is no excuse to not be able to archive a tweet. They neglected to do so. Perhaps  because..........................the tweets in question they claimed were mine, were never mine to begin with. BUSTED!

     

    To be so petty on Twitter over no response has made me wonder how they treat people in their personal lives.

    I started playing World of Warcraft nearly 3 years ago on my 15th birthday. At first, I thought it was a great game. It was rich in storylines with a wealth of activities to do.

     

    My grades always stayed good. I studied.  I didn't have to work. Parents for for everything within reason and as long as my grades are good. But pretty soon, World of Warcraft was all I did in my spare time. If I wasn't doing homework or household chores, it was always World Of Warcraft. It wasn't that way at first.

     

    As I advanced in levels the pressure was on to reach "max level" and get into end game content and do raids. So I was spending more and more time working on getting my levels higher to reach that maximum level. Once I did, the pressure was on to be "geared", have the the best of the best. While I enjoyed the game, I wasn't about to put it ahead of my studies or my family.

     

    I thought that as long as my family and school work came first, then it there would be no problems. I enjoyed playing and doing raids. The guild I was with had a schedule that fit with mine perfectly. I couldn't ask for better, right? One day I was suppose to raid, I skipped it. I informed the guild leader I needed to skip it so I could finish my science project on electricity. I thought things were fine. The next time I was at a raid, I got kicked out at the last moment and ended up with nothing. I asked why and the guild leader said I shouldn't skip out on raids. Then I got a speech about priorities and I will never get anywhere if I don't learn to put my priorities straight. I thought that was the end of it. Then I saw a post on the guild forums saying I was banned from attending raids until I learn to get my priorities in order. I posted a lengthy response. I mentioned my age and I was upfront about it form the start and that my studies and school work came first becuse getting an education is what will help me support myself after I leave home. Better education, better job, more money. The response I got back was made me rethink my time in World of Warcraft. The guild leader accused me of attacking his policies and said an extra 2-3 hours to help the guild wouldn't kill me. A few people stood up for me saying that me putting my education first was admirable. One person said "So you want him to put aside his school work for the guild one time. You told me that 2 years ago. That one time turned to many and I've had to rearrange my life around the guild needs. f**k you no longer. Grow up.". People left the guild. The guild leader blamed me for his guild starting to fall apart.

     

    I left my guild and tried to search for another. I got in one, but was kicked shortly after because apparently my last guild leader claimed I stole everything from the guild bank. It seems he made a toon with a name close to mine and took a bunch of stuff out. He did the same to other guild members. I will always regret every joining the Champions of Light guild on the Whisperwind server.

     

    I ended up changing servers. I found what I thought was a good guild. I thought so until I was expected to be on more than I could be. I was pushed and pressure to "come on for a few" to help out new guildies. Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against helping new players, but I am against putting some game before things in real life. I got chastised by people for not being on one night to help out because I went to a movie. I explained that once in awhile I deserve to do something for myself considering how hard I work to do well in school. I got a lecture about how movies are entertainment and not a necessity. I fired back with saying World of Warcraft is the same thing and I wanted a little diversity in my activities so I don't get burned out. a large number of people jumped all over me. I got a long speech about priorities and how I should put my guild's needs before my own. I was like "So these people expect me to not go out or spend time with the few friends I have just for their bits and bytes on a computer game?". This was the final straw.

     

    While most people rage quit, I simply logged out and stopped getting time cards.  I felt relieved. While I was working on some calculus homework one day, I began to think of so much I missed out on by putting so much time to that game. Despite that school work and family and friends were #1, I still missed out on alot. I got a job at Burger King that I still enjoy. I'm helping my parents out with the bills and saving for college. I didn't think of World of Warcraft again until after 2 weeks that I quit. I started to get angry messages on Facebook asking why I've been shirking my responsibilities for the guild. I was referred to as selfish. I was told I was just as bad as some death knight named "Dfanning" that left years ago in 201. I blocked each and every one of those people. The guild that was doing this to me was some guild on the Anvilmar server. I don't remember the name of the guild, but it had the word "Shadows" in its name.

     

    Now that I have washed my hands of World of Warcraft, I feel like I have escaped a cult.

  1. Dating has changed ALOT over the years. Alot of people do the online dating thing. Sign up for a profile, chat, meet, etc. The point of this is to exercise some cautions when it comes to online dating. I can't tell anyone what to do or how they should handle things, but what I can do is explain how I handle things while giving my opinion.

    1. Unsolicited nudes: If anyone sends me nudes, they get blocked instantly. NO RESPONSE.Much of the time, people who send nudes without asking or after a person says no are just seeking sex and in it for the sex. While this is fine for some people, what happens when looks fade and when the sex dwindles due to age? What will there be then?

    2. Number throwing: When someone "throws' their number at me by just giving it to me in their first message, I handle it in one of two ways. If they appear nice, then I tell them I don't easily give my number out to someone unless I get to know them a little bit. someone sincere will be okay with that. If the person reacts badly, I block them right away. If the person throwing their number at me is abrasive or sexual in their message with their number, I block them right away. Also people who just easily throwing their number out there, likely have given it to many and are many times likely to continue to do it til they find the "best deal".

    3. Inviting into the home: Unless I have atleast met someone in a public place 4+ times and known them a few weeks, I won't invite them into my home. This isn't trust issues, it's common sense. A nice and decent person won't mind waiting. If someone seems pushy or miffed by this, be cautious.

    4. Body part profile pic focus: Sometimes in a dating profile, I will see a picture of a person with the focus being on their bare abs or chest. I tend to avoid people that do their because it implies they are all about looks and having someone with "a perfect/near perfect" body.

    5. "Very" personal (sexual) questions: People who ask me sexual questions about my private areas, get an instant block. Kind of creepy for someone I barely know to be asking such things.Those who engage in such before are extremely likely just "wanting to get laid". I'm not into being someone's play thing and booty call.

    6. Asking for nudes (partial&whole): Instant block.

    7. NEVER SEND NUDES: Bad idea. This is something I've never done and never will. Doing so opens you up to revenge porn and having your life ruined should the receiver get "angry".

    8. Document/Inform: If you're going out with someone you don't know well, be sure to let someone you know who you're with and where you're going.

    9. The safety net: If you're going out with someone you barely know or that is "unreliable", make sure to bring enough money to pay for your meal and a way home. If the person seems picky about cost, but shows little concern that their meal is pricey, it is a sure sign that they are likely going to ditch the bill on you. Take a pre-emptive strike. Tell the server "I'm sorry I should have mentioned this before, but we are paying separate".. This way you pay for your meal and what you ate. If they try to guilt you to pay for theirs, just remember you were about to be ditched to pay for it all.

  2. *In 2015, when we were plagued by the hated Power Rangers Dino Charge, I had made the decision to delve into the one super hero universe I never thought I would: Super Sentai, the universe that gave rise to the Power Rangers. For decades, I hadn't given Super Sentai a shot because of the enemies of democracy who were controlling it. While I have seen Abaranger, Dekaranger, Magiranger and Boukenger, I needed to see more of it. So I bought Zyuranger, the MMPR equivalent from Shout Factory, and I began my journey. What I had quickly discovered was that the storytelling of Super Sentai was far more complete than its Power Ranger counterpart and the characters seemed more interesting, with some exceptions. Then I journeyed on to Dairanger, Kakuranger, Ohranger, Carranger, Megaranger and now Gingaman, with Gogov and Timeranger to follow. I had made an oath when I started this to learn all I can about Super Sentai in order to conquer it. So far, my mission was and is succeeding perfectly.

    At around the same time, the world of prime time gave birth to its own super hero universe called the Arrowverse, which was based on the heroes of DC Comics. It began with Arrow, then spread to the Flash, Legends and then Supergirl. My preference of the heroes of this universe remained the White Canary, who had seen so much tragedy in her life, it isn't even funny. For the last couple of years, this universe had seem flawless. However, within the last year, cracks started showing in the armor of the Arrowverse with one stupid decision after another. First, the launch of a hero unrelated to this universe(Black Lightning), then giving super speed to someone who very clearly did not deserve it(Iris West-Allen). Even Supergirl started showing its flaws when it tried to address the issue of gun control by having the agents of the DEO use non-lethal weaponry, which was a sop to the gun control types who may watch the show. Now, I hear Legends is going to be excluded from this fall's crossover, which has me saying, "It may be time to look at other options, because this universe is faltering badly."

    To summarize, while Super Sentai is growing on me, my interest in the Arrowverse may be starting to shrink. Unless they correct course, I may be looking to DC's upcoming streaming service instead for my jollies as I ponder leaving the Arrowverse behind. I do not want to have to leave Green Arrow and co. behind, but when Stephen Amell hinted he was open to a crossover with Black Lightning, it made me sick to my stomach. For now, the heroes of the Super Sentai universe offer me the comfort I sorely lack from the CW's family of shows at the moment. Let's hope the Arrowverse stops its insanity before it's too late.
