The world is on pause, and so we find ourselves with time at last to ponder the big questions. By overwhelming popular demand, here comes Not Up For Debate, our most popular series ever.
In this episode: Enough escapist fantasy. It’s time to get real. If all society broke down tomorrow, like totally hypothetically, who would the Caps be in the dystopic hellscape?
A kind-hearted avuncular figure we depend on to keep us sane.
He’s waiting in the wings for his moment to shine. It’s coming. (I don’t even remember Tatsumi from the movie. I’m thinking book here. The movie is trash. Read the book though; it’s fun and good.)
He’s elite at doing… whatever (gestures broadly) that is.
He’s escaped from the west coast to be a bad-ass here on the east.
A do-gooder specialized for a specific purpose (fourth-liney things), enriching the lives of all who know him.
No one should be this handsome. Must be evil. What’s he up to?
p.s. I don’t mind if you refuse to headcanon the McConaughey Man In Black or any other version. I didn’t even see Idris Elba movie.
Technically, he’s Blaster. I don’t know who Master is. Reid Cashman?
I love how Tom Petty just plays himself in this movie. Anyway, Hagelin has great hair. Have we talked about that before?
Spitting, I think, is a kind of law-giving.
A model in non-toxic masculinity.
He has done good work for a while, but I don’t know how long he’ll last.
Honestly, I just wanted to put this mental image in your head.
He has survived unspeakable horrors (e.g. Atlanta Thrashers) and evolved into something at once more brutal and more sophisticated.
One of a kind. Impossible to duplicate. Sometimes maybe just a tiny bit too extra.
p.s. if you think Ayn Rand isn’t post-apocalyptic fiction, meet me in the comments for an ass-kicking.
If Orlov were a messianic figure, he’d be the dopey, goofy kind of messianic figure.
Because daaaaaaaaad viiiiiibes.
He represents the promise of a better future.
Surprisingly deadly despite his young age.
Sometimes you need lethality. Sometimes maybe it’s too much.
Though the series is called Not Up For Debate, I’m leaving the comments open. So you can compliment me. For the very good picks. Appreciate the congrats.
