Got to see it.  Liked it on it's own, separate from the historical comics. 
I have most of those originals ... and it's very different.

Anyway, it's worth seeing.  Definitely NOT a classic Hollywood ending.
'Cept it's technically the halfway point.  It'll be interesting to see how
they make the Time Gem = the ~equal of the other 5 Gems, in terms of "the" plan.

(was that a spoiler, uh, not really sorta)

Trying to make Thanos a contemporary american ideologue Anti-Hero,
instead of the worst of the worst of the worst and girl crazy ?! ?!
Well that part is just plain old weird ... lol aDMg's anything ...
Changes the flavor quite a bit ; probably market research >>>> the orginals.

I'm at a loss, trying to figure what the main story line will be, for the sequel.

D&D 5e / Re: NPC Compendium

1) ... Mellored posted a Vhuman Monk Open 10 with Alert , dex + dex ; for a pvp comp on wotc right before they poofed.  He explained his tactics, and no one bothered to take him on.
I countered that specific build (=metagaming) with a worked up Dex Barb 7 / early UA Swash 3 just to get  nearly equal on initiative+surprise ; hoping for enough hp to handle the stuns that did get through, and after the stunning is done, go with Adv and better damage.  Fight never happened.

That Monk build works from level 5+, and has a nasty trick at 11, especially for arena 1v1 fights.  I wouldn't bet on the Barb+Swash against that Monk.

2) ... the UA NPC article has an Alt Rolling detail that makes any Basic Rules npc considerably better.  It's technically Random class first, and only srd, And No Feats = sad panda.  Doing this with Frenzy Barb that blows frenzy right away, is possibly very strong ; it's also good for the cleric or wiz or base thief.  Not sure how well a kitted cleric or wiz is with your setting.

3) ... Volos has the few prebuilds.  Don't know if you wanna go that restrictive on the various classes.  A rogue Thief 13 might be a very sneaky way to (re-)Introduce higher level magic into the game.  Surprise surprise but otherwise vanilla rogue.

4) ... Sorc 3 / Lock 3 could get the Disguise all the time + Disguise kit going , with the Focus replacement Hat or Shard in XGtE ... from the stands , running Vicious Mockery.  Fighter feels bad and wants to know why?  Nobody knows.  King says fighter loses and the opponent hasn't even shown up yet.

Google changes their search algorithm every now and then.
The latest change looks quite beneficial.

"minmaxforum" and "minmaxboards" don't bring up "minmax boards is dead" at the top anymore.

Sever The Tie power in the 3.0 book, is specifically anti-Undead, and not updated.

Erudite is technically a variant Psion.  Get a Beguiler as the thrall = learn all those tasty spells cheap + easy.

Clairsentience ... I'd prefer an Ardent into Visionary Seeker with a psiotheurgist feat = corner case early access.

The 6 works like the Wiz Div 6 , but is based on slots instead of spells.
If there was some decent spell stack load out possible ... going 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 can happen.
Something weird like Order 6 / Wiz or Lore 14 , can put more variety into the slots.
White-room-ish , but there's some there there.

Probably not do able, is sticking VoA 1 ability on all those Enchantment stacks.
Something like Sorc 2 or 3 / Order X , could break down into a whole lot of Reaction Attacks.

Planescape had a thing, where there's a "Path" of ~belief that leads from the 1st level, on up to each 1's respective higher level.

Kinda a stairway to A heaven, and with differing forms of resistance to going the Wrong way.

A lesser Slaad Lord got flung onto the 1st level and polluted everything around it, and the local midlevel toughs couldn't get near it or they'd lose their LG-ness and they didn't want to do that, so they hired the PCs to go un-pollute that area.  Same thing could happen on one of the stairways above.  HELP people can't go all the way up now SOMEBODY DO SOMETHING !!!  I've got extra devotions I have to do from just talking to you to get you to do something I ~can't = Ugh!

Dude walks into Facebook.
Dude buys data.
Dude sells/somethings's the data.
Cambridge Analytica finangles it some more.
Result = They got (stole) your Facebook data.

wtf happens here

Brit TV sting includes UkranianHookers.
And who doesn't like a Stole Your Facebook Data + Cheesecake story.
Wall Street for one.

WotC forums used Facebook for ~some of their forum handling.
I'm curious if they know yet, what happened to "their" (+"our") stuff.
