Huh, that actually reminds me of cultural issues with Performers in Asia/japan/china. Circus Soleil members have to be coached on how its considered rude to Applaud over there as you should be giving full attention to the performers, so a silent audience doesn't mean they're disliking it.

On another note, read the LOM 3.
VERY enjoyable, really liked it. Good art, good plot, enjoyable character interactions.

the only real issue I have is that it being "canterlot castle" makes no sense given how Canterlot is in a MOUNTAIN and is a sprawling metropolis now.
This makes WAY more sense if you ignore the word "canterlot" and replace it with "everfree forest", as them making a castle in the middle of the forest synchs up way better with how the ponies who started building the castle there got waylaid by a manticore (and possibly other things) when they were building at first.

Dude is alot different than I was expecting; Alot of comic relief coming from him :/

strife doesn't look too pleased by his master's actions. I 'm kind of starting to think that Storm king is going to end up turning "good" and strife will be the real big bad of the movie acting as the starscream and manipulating him, like Rabia to sombra.

>>36825543
I'm fine with some comedy from him so long as he still shows he has competence when it comes to dealing with enemies (like Discord). Actually helps give him a bit more personality.

And Strife could just be playing the role of the more focused henchman to the goofier villain while still being loyal. Kind of like Commander Peepers is to Lord Hater in Wander Over Yonder, or Smithers to Mr Burns in Simpsons.

Besides, they already have Tempest Shadow to have the redemption arc, and possibly Grubber too since he's her sidekick.

I have to wonder, were they given a screenplay or such to work off of?

Yeah, I'm fully expecting those two to be redeemed as well.


I'm cool with a villain having a goofy side so long as they show that, despite their craziness, they're still capable of wrecking shit up.
Like father from Kids next door: half his dialogue is goofy jokes-- but the OTHER half of his time is basically being 60s sitcom satan.


I still have very high hopes for Storm king, so I'm kind of hoping this is there to lull the audience into writing him off as a joke with him doing some serious villainy right afterwards.


>>36825544
>And Strife could just be playing the role of the more focused henchman to the goofier villain while still being loyal.


Thinking about strife though, I'm kind of curious--- He's not mentioned in ANY of the promo materials or credits.
Which means he's either very unimportant, or very Important and kept out of promo stuff to make him a surprise.

I rather hope he wasn't just made up by IDW for the comic.

Well, that cinches it in my mind.

The storm king is going to be BTFO by strife and he will will be the big bad of the movie.
The storm king is going to get "eviler than thou'd" by Strife after playing the Good guys off of Storm king, and end up resuced by the ponies, and realize that Friends are a Strength, not a weakness.

At the same time, Strife is going to play both sides against each other and have a much more evil omnicidal goal than the storm king's big fun attitude.





On that note, 9/10, really liked how the storm king acted. Also, he acted much more in line with the reason for invasions in the ancient past: You raped and pillaged the other kingdom, you didn't take it over, for all the reasons the storm king said-- you just grabbed shit and got out unless you were the romans or it was strategically valuable. (That being said, being a trade nation, that would have counted for being "Strategically valuable" in most countries minds)

One more reason to root for Storm King

Marimo(mobile)Country code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36825635

>>36825622
I got the opposite feeling. I don't even think he's going to be in the movie, he'll just somehow be the connecting thread between the actual characters. Note how next issue will focus on the pirates that he joined.

I mean the point of the character you see is to betray the main villain based on the most opportune moment. But he didn't, he left the number two position for a bunch of unheroic pirates who only wanted treasure, not to join up with some good guys or when he could immediately use all the pieces for whatever great scheme to get power is.

And the movie script came first with the comic writer working backwards. The movie writers idea is to introduce the surprise villain (and he would have to be a surprise if that's your reason for why he's not in promotional stuff) as a dark, evil looking cloud whose name means conflict? I know MLP ain't exactly subtle, but come on. If he was a surprise villain, he would better suit the henchman role until the perfect time to strike, and whatever help he gave the heroes would be from the Storm King's side.

Also did it occur to anyone else he's literally cloud Strife? That can't just be a coincidence, so I also wonder who would more likely try to sneak in a subtle reference like that, the movie writers or a comic writer (the latter of whom would have a bit more freedom in slipping in things like that).

Got to see the trailer. Now I'm thinking there actually could be a chance that Strife could be in the movie as some hidden big bad, but I'm still doubtful he's sticking around with Celaeno's crew.

There's another prequel with Celaneo, remember?

I'm thinking these comics are going to be in chronological order, with strife as the connecting piece-- He betrayed Storm king and went to celaneo.

next up we get Celaneo's prequel comic, and he screws THEM over and leaves, leading to another prequel comic where he interacts with another of the movie cast, yeah?



Plus, the fact that his name is the anti-thesis of harmony makes me think even MORE that he's going to be the big bad-- Could be that Giant black tornado in the trailer? Or could be his master he unleashed.

The ONLY thing that has me Wondering about if he'll be in the movie is the fact that we have no VA announcements for him or anything, which, given how they've been pimping out VA names for advertising, strikes me as odd.

I know, I referenced that in a different post.
>>36825635

Something else that occurred to me is I don't think Tempest was shown even as a cameo. So she probably hasn't joined up yet and that could be what's covered in her issue, the last one. And if Strife is the connecting figure, then it could be something like his presence causing trouble for Celaneo and Capper because Storm King is chasing after him out of revenge. So to resolve Storm King's grudge so he can go back to conquering, it might end up that Tempest is responsible for trapping or somehow incapacitating Strife when they meet, and Storm King offers her a position for what she did. And being a pony, she might be from or at least know about Equestria and she gives him the idea to go there next, leading into the movie.
