That's offensive. Emrakul doesn't self identify as female.


Apparently what people "want" is more important than the identity (or lack thereof of the character. Speaks volumes really.

There's many kinds of love. Love between incomprehensible horrors is probably mostly about passion and madness.

Who made that tumblr post about shipping Marit Lage and Emrakul. I don't know about you but I am all for eldritch lesbain monsters. THAT is the kind of representation I want

Ignoring the much larger problem with that statement for the moment, wouldn't the qualifier eldritch monster kind of negate the male/female gender labels?

I don't see the problem with a squid wanting more portrayal of consentacles in media.

Both Lage and Emrakul identify as female and it does NOT define there level of eldritch-ness. Being Eldritch is for ANY gender

I don't know anything about Marit Lage other than they're trapped in ice, but I'm reasonably certain Emrakul doesn't "identify" period. The Zendikari may have assigned genders to the titans and their deity-identities, but I've missed something big (and would require an official link to convince me) if the eldrazi have started to be anything but eldrazi.

Squid has a point, and also a much more appropriate avatar.

So, with Sofia Lamb, Bellweather (SPOILERS) and some other person I am forgetting, does that mean that the official villain archetype is woman with glasses?

Max Landis had a Ghostbusters treatment that sounded pretty cool. I was skeptical about them wanting to touch on Gozer again, but I liked this idea: a Gozer cult would be involved in a plot to open a gate, allowing Gozer to return to the human world. However, the title of The Traveler was revealed to be a misinterpretation - Gozer's actually The Guide. So Gozer was a minor emissary for Tiamat, a big dragon ghost-god of chaos. I wish this were happening.

Basically anything is better than what they are releasing now.

The leaked plot doesn't sound great tbh, and I've been one that's advocated for people to wait for a trailer before denouncing the movie. The trailer came, and it didn't do anything for me. It doesn't help that the dragon-demon ghost thing is the movie's Slimer, rather than the Gozer.

Didn't the original script of Ghostbusters 2 have the Ghostbusters going to hell?

This is the internet. Love is secondary to eldritch porn.

One of these days, it will all fold in on itself when tentacles realize all they to do is love themselves instead of searching for validation in others.

Lage and Emmy learn to love themselves THROUGH each other and through they're loving and supportive relationship.
