Me before seeing the Wonder Woman 1984 Funko Pops: "Perhaps I should set a limit on how many Funko Pops I've got, there's only so much space- Me after seeing the Wonder Woman 84 Funko Pops: "I must have them all."

Looks a lot more like classic Harley! Also, I don't recognise who that is on far left of the picture - is it Ratcatcher?

Following WWII, my grandparents came to this country from Soviet-occupied Ukraine. Had the points-based system existed then, they'd have been considered 'low skilled', and likely denied entry. Which means both myself and my sister wouldn't be here.

Indeed. At first I thought it was a BoP film, with Harley Quinn shoehorned in, but after seeing the trailers/posters, I fear it could be more Harley, with the BoP shoehorned in. Why didn't they just make a solo Harley film, or Gotham City Sirens?

Hi Grace, I'm in two minds over whether to see this or not. Is it more a Harley Quinn film with the Birds of Prey shoehorned it, sidelined in favour of Harley? Or does it do the Birds justice? Still gutted that there's no Barbara Gordon.

Still Remain and proud of it.

I never said "critic film." I said "film critic." Also, just because Grace has a different opinion to yours, it doesn't make it invalid. I'd also question your objectivity, given your Twitter handle and profile picture.

She's not a "hater." Grace is a film critic, giving her considered, professional opinion on a film, which is, to be blunt, her job. We've been here before: enthusiastic reactions online, mostly from fans, to DCEU films. Then they came out, and didn't fare as well.

Except neither Black Mask nor Victor Zsasz have ever been gay characters in the original source material, so that argument doesn't apply. If we were talking about Batwoman, or Wiccan and Hulkling, for example, not being portrayed as gay, then it would apply.

The counter argument to that is if it's not important to the character, why add it in?

It's probably because in the comics (as well as other media) neither Black Mask or Victor Zsasz have ever been portrayed as gay or bisexual. That's why to some fans it might feel like enforced representation.

After watching the impeachment trial, the White House defence can be summed up as follows:

Barricade your windows and get a fire extinguisher ready : ) In all seriousness, if you want to hang some EU flags, then hang those flags with pride, and don't worry want some bigots might do. If we silence ourselves out of fear, our democracy will suffer.

Just seen the first trailer for Wonder Woman 1984. Looks amazing, great action, and comics accurate. Love the fact we'll be seeing Themyscira and the Amazons again.

Is that artwork from Greg Rucka's Rebirth run?

Unbelievable. I don't get it either. Maybe some are thinking he'll be safe, and voting for the other couples instead? I know people have won who've been in the bottom two before, but it doesn't bode well that it's happening at this stage of the competition. I hope I'm wrong.

Indeed. In her defence, Tess is probably trying to be supportive. However, it does come across as patronising, and treats them like they're all a bunch of toddlers.

I'll never get tired of watching this. A special goal indeed.

You know you're a Tottenham Hotspur fan when even at three nil you can't relax. Despite our best efforts to blow the lead, we held on. Work to be done, but it's a good start.
