[ late with this one, oops—been in California since the end of May, and am evidently not thinking much . . . ]
For many of us out in the fansphere, this isn’t just the dream, this is the perfect nightmare. Which, yes, is kind of am empty statement. What I’m trying to say is: Could there possibly have been anything even halfway as cool as this?
He’s Adrian Veidt with a cosmic version of the Redeker Plan, yeah? It’s a good build for a bad guy. I miss his old “I want to kill half the universe as a gift for Death, whom I love love love”-angle from the comics, but I think this version plays better. Or, it doesn’t have a self-destruct button built in.
Also, wonder if Deadpool will say anything about Brolin being both Thanos and Cable? Or, how can he not?
Well, across the street, really. Glen was probably 1427, 1429 if it was a packed street. With bigger lots, no telling. Either way, this is about as cool as it gets:

It’s from the “Black Jeopardy” sketch with T’Challa on it:
The Shining is great and amazing and permanent and iconic and all that good stuff, of course, but one thing it has going for it that very, very few other stories ever get is that it instantly activates our imagination—immediately upon hearing the premise, we put ourselves in that situation of being winter caretaker for a remote hotel, and then, before we ever read what King wrote, we’re writing our own stories in our heads: I’d sleep in a different bed every night, I’d make myself sit in place and watch an orange on the table until it started to decay, I’d, I don’t know, write a bloody ending for this story swirling through my head, play catch with myself against the wall of the Big Room, and on and on.
