    Comic Review: Annual #2 (Power Ponies) (And yes, we're talking about THAT)

    It's several weeks overdue, but I believe it is time we finally tackled FiM's second annual. After last year's Equestria Girls prequel turned out to be only slightly better than the film it was based on, it's time we looked at another group of non-Mane 6 characters, the Power Ponies, and their marvelous adventures. Can they foil the evil that ponies do?


    Maretropolis is a city beset by villains. Whether it be the tangled schemes of the Mane-iac, the perilous plundering pursuits of Pharaoh Phetlock, the glamorous crime spress of High Heel, or the despair brought on by the ever-saddened Long-Face, the proud ponies that call this noble city home are doomed to a lifetime of suffering and victimhood. At least, that's what would happen if it weren't for the city's mightiest defenders, the POWER PONIES! The Masked Matter-Horn, Zapp, Mistress Mare-velous, Fili-Second, Radiance, Saddle Ranger, and Humdrum, fight a never-ending battle in the name of justice and peace! They are an unstoppable team, loved by everpony in Maretropolis...

    And they hate each other.

    The Power Ponies is just a big show put on to mask how dysfunctional and broken the team is. Mare-velous resents having to work with others. Fili-Second is bored with everything. Radiance is vain and wants all of the media's attention, much to Zapp's frustration. Saddle Ranger can barely keep from going into a rage from all the fighting. And the Masked Matter-Horn orders everyone around while doing nothing to correct the team's behavior. Only Humdrum seems to have any interest in the Power Ponies staying together.

    But this shall be their darkest hour, for in Balkham Asylum, their worst enemies have banded together to bring an end to the Power Ponies once and for all! The Mane-iac, Phetlock, High Heel and Longface are joined by the amorphous Smudge and master thief Shadowmane, and form a mighty Legion of Doom (only not called that because Lex Luthor would simultaneously sue and nuke them). The fractured Power Ponies are no match for the villains' combined assault, and to top things off, their powers are stolen and given to their worst enemies thanks to accursed science. Will our powerless heroes learn the power of friendship and save the city?

    Before getting into the issue itself, though, there is one thing: if you didn't like the episode “Power Ponies,” this comic probably won't change your mind. It's still a superhero story done with ponies; outside of the horse puns, you could probably fit any super-team you can think of into this plot and it would have worked almost as well. The comic also doesn't really differentiate them from how the Mane 6 portrayed them, although the actual Power Ponies are far more straightforward in their character types and significantly less friendly. The main difference is their appearance, as they have different coat and mane colors. In addition, Humdrum is actually a colt, and not a dragon; it's a nice touch and helps differentiate the actual in-universe comic from the LARPing the Mane 6 and Spike had to do.

    Plus, given that Humdrum saves the day twice, maybe Spike is overstating his uselessness a bit too much.

    The original plot apparently had Spike traveling into the comic to help save the day, but it was axed in favor of Humdrum teaching the Power Ponies the values of friendship. You can clearly see where Spike should have been; Humdrum uses a checklist of friendship activities in his instruction, and everything is structured like a school lesson, all of which are things the dragon has to put up with while working with Twilight. Still, I do like the idea of Humdrum getting the lessons in friendship from the Power Ponies' universe's equivalent of FiM; it's an amusing bit of meta humor that has a great payoff.

    The villains are all your basic baddies, and wouldn't stand out too much against the Adam West Batman's rogues gallery. Pharaoh Phetlock has a gang of mummies at his command, Long-Face attacks with “Sadness Gas,” High Heel's car is shaped like a sneaker, and the Mane-iac is still a lighter version of the Joker with living hair. Still, it's an amusing touch that they actually get along very well, in comparison to how most villain team-ups have said antagonists bickering about everything while demanding a decent pair of pants. It's a little sad that our heroes have to destroy such a good friendship to save the day and reclaim their powers.

    I think the best way to describe this annual is that it's fun, albeit in a very Silver Age sort of way. The heroes and villains are ridiculous, the plot is ludicrous, and it's very preachy and goofy, but all in a good way. It harkens back to the days when Batman wore a different-colored costume every night and everyone in the Superman cast was a dick, only minus the overt racism, misogyny, and political propaganda of the era. Sometimes you just want to read a story about superheroes saving the day without condemning them for wanting to help people, or focusing all of the attention on how much better the villains are, or killing characters off for shock value.

    ...Modern comics suck.

    Point is, the annual is good...except perhaps for the backup. Originally featured as a SDCC exclusive, the story features the Mane-iac escaping from prison and returning to her hideout. She finds the Crystal Mirror, which is in the factory...for no reason. And she goes through...for no reason. And she ends up in the Equestria Girls world, but is still a pony...for no reason. And then there's a human!Mane-iac that fights her...for no reason.

    This backup exists...for no reason.

    About the only funny part is the very last panel, where it turns out to be a very weird issue of a comic that human!Dash is reading. And even then, the joke is ruined if you think about it for more than ten seconds. In particular, Dash is weirded out that a pony version of the Mane-iac showed up, which implies that the human cast is the one she's used to in her universe. But the cover plainly shows that the comic is still called Power Ponies. So are they called “Power Ponies” for no reason? Was the joke just incredibly lame? The world may never know.

    Point is, the annual is worth picking up. I heartily recommend it to anyone who enjoys either a different kind of pony adventure or just wants an old-fashioned superhero romp.


    Well, that was fun. I wonder why I put this off for so...

    ...Oh right, that thing.

    What has sadly overshadowed how good the comic was is a single, hard-to-see, almost unrecognizable insert of someone's pony OC. In particular, it belongs to someone I shall not name who has produced some...less-than-popular art and critiques of the fandom. The resulting fallout has resulted in a continuing flame war and (possibly) the removal of Ted Anderson from the comics and IDW as a whole. The explosion that lead to RainbowDoubleDash and myself being banned from the Round Stable? That was kicked off by the fandom's reaction to the OC's appearance and their support of the OC's creator. (Plus, RDD is a stubborn blockhead who won't listen when people tell him to walk away and believes that parting shots are acceptable conduct in a discussion. Sorry, but it's kind of true.)

    To put it simply, I do find quite a bit of her work offensive, and claiming that it can simply be dismissed because of satirical intent doesn't fly for me. I'm not demanding anyone's head on a pike or the like, nor do I expect anyone that experiences genuine prejudice and hardship to care what a depressed white man finds offensive, but that doesn't change how disgusted I felt. And claiming it was trying to make a satirical point doesn't make things better; you can explain your intentions all you want, but the fact is that you not only failed to tell a joke well, but you made yourself look uglier with what you said.

    With that taken into consideration, I still think the reaction was far too overblown for what actually happened, and Anderson doesn't deserve to be fired over this. I certainly had no idea who it was until someone pointed it out and explained the whole mess, and I doubt that many did before the issue's release. But if you go purely by how the community has treated it, you'd think Anderson came to every brony's house and snapped their newborn puppy's neck before drinking its blood. It was a harmless, unremarkable background appearance, and nothing else.

    ...Now to brace for the inevitable.

    Just a note:

    I'm going to be disconnecting soon. If you don't hear from me, I'm probably dead on the side of the road. Or I got gunned down outside the office. Or those pills I just took finished me off. Or the infection on my arm spreads over my body. Or I find a use for that pocket knife I found. Or I found eternal happiness and sadly had to leave.

    The last one is never going to happen.

    ...Also, new fic is in production. We'll see if it ever gets finished, or if it rots like everything else I write. Hey, remember when people liked me and I wasn't just some hack on the Internet that drives people insane whining endlessly about his life when other people have far bigger problems? Those were good times.

    Explanation

    So...you may have seen my last blog post. At least some of you were probably wondering what the heck that was about, and others were wondering why I was writing that thing instead of finishing my fics. I owe you guys an explanation.

    As I mentioned once or twice here, I got a promotion. The new position has a higher salary and promises better conditions than my current one. The problem is that the job is in Sacramento, and I am not. So a move is necessary. I'm still at my current job, though; I have this last week before beginning next Monday. Needless to say, it's been stressful.

    Last Wednesday, one of our systems went out, so we had to stop our project and go back on the phones for most of the day. I ended up having a panic attack before I could even switch my phone on. So I pissed off my supervisor and my manager, got myself written up, and probably lost the promotion.

    Nevertheless, we went apartment shopping, just in case I didn't piss away my future. We found a number of places around my future office that were reasonably priced...and they either had nothing available by the time we needed it, or we were told not to go there by the guide to the area because of gangs. Anything beyond those could go for a thousand a month, which was well out of the price range. We ended up finding a place in Carmichael...but there's no guarantee that it will be ready in time (they're doing a full-scale renovation of their apartments right now), so I may be out of a place to live.

    After that, I had to start packing. The problem is that I need to get everything out of the house, and my father wants it done by tonight so that we can move it downstairs piecemeal throughout the week, after I get home from work. I've already filled up a dozen boxes, and have tons more to go. Doesn't help that I've been on a downswing.

    So I went onto the Round Stable yesterday to cool off. And I...said some things that I didn't mean to be hurtful or insulting, but were definitely so looking back. Woke up and figured I would apologize; found out I was permabanned because they got tired of putting up with my shit.

    So that's where I sit. I screwed up my promotion and current job, ruined the apartment hunt, failed at packing, and pissed people off enough to demand I leave.

    I'm sorry if you expected something that truly mattered.

    Failure is inevitable

    Everywhere I go, I will eventually screw things up.

    I will fail to do what needs to be done because I'm a lazy bastard.

    I will drive people away because I'm a loathsome person who can't keep his mouth shut.

    I will anger people because I can't let things go.

    I will go to places where I have no right to be and make others hate me even more. I will let my frustration overtake me and drive me to do stupid shit.

    By the time I'm done, everyone there will despise me and be happy I'm eventually told to leave.

    It's inevitable. It will happen over and over again, and no amount of medication or hotlines will stop it. I will always screw up.

    Sorry to have disturbed you.

2013

Today the Brony Documentary group released a trailer for the extended interviews bonus, with extra footage of Tara, De Lancie and Faust. Most of it's pretty much your basic stuff, but...watch what Faust says...

In case you're lazy, she says that she had planned out destinies for the different characters, and mentions Rarity, Rainbow Dash and Twilight specifically. The first two are self-explanatory: Rarity gets a dress shop in Canterlot and Rainbow Dash joins the Wonderbolts. Those are pretty blindingly obvious, and have been built up to over the course of the show. But then she gets to Twilight...who was going to be Celestia's successor. Yes, successor. As in, princess. She also tweeted after the hype machine kicked into gear that this wasn't in her plan, so that seems to imply that this would have happened at some point in time, but not in the middle of the series' run.

This actually adds credence to the idea that MMC was going to be the series finale. After all the staff turnover and with DHX picking up so many projects, Hasbro cuts their losses and orders thirteen episodes to fill out the sixty-five needed for syndication. That way, they can just sell the airing rights after the fact and make a fortune. But when the show remained popular (and possibly because shows like Care Bears didn't take off like they had wanted), they decided to renew it for another full season. The only problem is that this meant MMC was already in production, and it would most likely be too late and too expensive to pull the episode and totally redo the ending.

So what does this actually mean? Not much, really, but it does give some more insight into the show's conception. And perhaps it can show that Hasbro isn't wrecking Faust's vision like so many claim they are.

This new info and the current state of affairs... it could still happen. o_o

#5 · 87w, 3d ago · · ·

Now I think about it, it explains the wierd ending off Wonderbolts Academy. If season 3 would be the last season and everypony off the mane 6 would get their dreams, then Wonderbolts Academy could be one off the episodes about Dash getting her dream. At the end Dash would be accepted as Wonderbolt.

This maybe also explains the remors before season 3 about Flutters changing in a dragon and Rarity getting a duet with Octavia. Flutters changing in a dragon would help her overcome her fear of dragons and help her learn to stand for herself. Rarity meeting Octaia would almost certainly happen in Canterlot. It would help Rarity to get a shop opened in Canterlot.

#6 · 87w, 3d ago · 3 · ·

None of this really surprise me.  Twilight taking up a role as Celestia's successor has always to me seemed a very likely destination for her character arc -- either that or becoming the royal arch-mage/vizier, but now that she's an alicorn the former seems to be the only viable path, and it's not a bad path.

Now exactly how well this will play out over the course of next season (and however many more season might potentially come after that), well, only time will tell.

#7 · 87w, 3d ago · · ·

So wait, this implies its our fault. We the fans got this so popular that it warranted MORE episodes and seasons! While Faust's original vision for the work was good, it wasn't multiseasonal enough for US.

This is very interesting. You know what? I would love to see her "fanfic" on the endings for our characters the way she had intended.

#8 · 87w, 3d ago · · ·

It's been heavily speculated that the reason this season was thirteen episodes, or one half, was so the other half would go to funding Equestria Girls, and that it never had anything to do with the syndication limit at all. Hasbro knows that ponies is pretty much the life blood right now, so they are broadening their horizons and syndicating FIM for the future.

As for the video itself, a bit surprising given Lauren's reaction on Twitter. Sure, she was never expecting Twilight to actually become royalty herself, but replacing the ruler of the entire kingdom is pretty much becoming royalty, anyway.

So yeah, "ruining Faust's vision?" No, not really.

More like broadening it out while keeping both corporate parties (Toy branch vs Show branch) happy.

#9 · 87w, 3d ago · 1 · 1 ·

It means that we really are in a Babylon 5 - style scenario, looking forward to a season of fillers, hastily-conceived plots and episodes from the scrap pile.

FWIW, I'm hoping that Rainbow and Rarity both reject their automatically-assumed 'destinies'.  It would fit well into the message of the show if they decide that their relationships with their friends and their places in the community in Ponyville was more important to them than celebrity, recognition and even wealth.  "I'm happy here, with my friends.  Money and fame couldn't replace that!" would be a nice message with which to round out the show.

#10 · 87w, 3d ago · · ·

Yeah, that is interesting.  Perhaps if we had known this two weeks ago, a lot less people would've freaked out..  (By the way, did you know that kludge is a word?  Because autocorrect seems to want to replace every other word I type with that today.)

#11 · 87w, 3d ago · 7 · ·

So everyone saying Lauren Faust didn't want Twilight to be a princess can shut it? (Sorry, I get more than a little tired of people using her to justify their own arguments.) Huzzah!

#12 · 87w, 3d ago · · ·

As long as this burns hundreds of fanfics, then I'm okay with it. :twilightsheepish:

#13 · 87w, 3d ago · · ·

What I want to know is how they're going to pull themselves out of this hole they accidentally dug. If they did, like you said, intend for the show to end there, but renewed the show for another season due to unexpected popularity, they've got to find some way to keep it going, right? If they're creative, I'm sure they can find a decent way to prevent hitting a dead end.

#14 · 87w, 3d ago · 4 · ·

...

...

HAH! Sorry, that was mean wasnt it to all of the people who say "messing with Lauren's vision" and "Hasbro is teh dvil," and "Princesses are just pwetty and historically dont do anything (princess Grace, Diania, and Catherine just got DISSED! Though I thank them for giving me the chance to research the real princesses in the real world and see what they did for real and their real lives)? So basically, what we have on our hands is another "DBZ, Kim Possible" scenario where something that was only meant for a particular length (Dragonball was only meant to go for the first arc, and KP was meant for only the 65) and then it got so popular that they decided to keep things going. I wonder if that is another reason for the 13, so Megan and the group could set up an arc  and plot things out slowly to get everything set up. Meanwhile Hasbro goes for the spin off that they want.

My question is this then...Die hard fans, where were you when Danny Phantom was canceled? Why was I stuck with only 3 seasons, 53 eps, and two awesome made for tv movies? Why didnt you save this show? Heck, Hey Armold fans...where were you guys when Nick decided to be the biggest A-holes on the planet and left us the world's second biggest cliffhanger (first place belongs to the always awesome and rewatchable...Berserk). Some of these shows need closure

they just annoy me now because we have seen them do their talents in many episodes and sweetie belle straight out says that even if she is a good singer she refuses to think its her special talent and tries to be like her big sister, you wont get the same cutie mark as your sister, the show shows that nopony can have the same talent, and all of the older ponies know their talents as well, but they arent allowed to tell them because they have to find it on their own, but they wont ever find it on their own if they keep listening to scootaloo trying to get a cutie mark like rainbowdash. I like them, and find them funny, but i dont like how they refuse to acknolodge that their special talent is what they refused to do for the talent show.

#19 · 87w, 3d ago · · ·

i will still regard this the s3 season finale as the actual finale when this show finally ends. the fact that twilight suddenly gets wings when i skip this episode before s4 we will solve when we get there.

>>845936

Sorry, Luna's already taken that spot.

>>846007

Possibly, or possibly not. The problem with Babylon 5 was that everything was resolved before the sudden renewal, while here, there's still a lot of ground to possibly cover. And in any case, it's kind of hard to have filler when your show is more of less slice of life, the very definition of filler.

Also, the idea you had for Rarity was kind of what happened in "Sweet and Elite." She goes to Canterlot, makes some huge waves thanks to a high-profile pony falling in love with her work, and feels she has to lie about her friends and origin to avoid being cast out. In the end, she learns that you should always be proud of where you're from. If the show had ended, that could have been a decent ending for her.

>>845988

More like broadening it out while keeping both corporate parties (Toy branch vs Show branch) happy.

It also ties into the claim made back in Season 2 that the show's creators had input on the toys. Although given how rushed the finale was, it's also possible that the change was still mandated, but since they still had Lauren's idea lying around, they decided to work that interpretation into the finale as best they could. It's honestly a shame they couldn't devote the entire episode to it, but at least they'll be addressing what happens now in the next opener.

#22 · 87w, 3d ago · 3 · ·

> it could still happen.

"Only on the Hub"?

Sorry, I couldn't resist :facehoof:

#23 · 87w, 3d ago · 2 · ·

I never understood the argument that "this isnt what Faust wanted!". Honestly I dont really care what Faust wants since she isnt apart of production anymore and even if she was I would still judge each episode as I do now. Would be like saying Disney didnt follow George Lucas's vision in their new Star Wars movie. Regardless of if its a flop of success, I don't care what Lucas's vision was since he isnt a part of it.

This info does give us some insight into Hasbro's thinking and I guess that does make me a little less angry. Though I am still way more disappointed than angry. I've been back to watch the songs of that episode several times and the greatest crime is wasting such perfect material and plot with such a convoluted episode. I would have rather them shot for an average episode and just it ending up below average than to have all these amazing scenes and touching moments wasted because of time constraints. Now every time I watch Twilights "I've got to find a way", the groups "A true true friends" or "Celestias  ballad", I can't completely enjoy them because all I can think about is what might have been.

#24 · 87w, 3d ago · · ·

>>846543

That isn't an exact analogy as Mr Lucas is supposedly going to be a story consultant on Episode VII (hopefully he'll convince J J Abrams not to turn the entire cast into hormonal teens).

Still, I do get your point; Lauren hasn't really be involved with MLP: FiM since the end of Season 2 and has only ever been credited with writing episodes 1x01 and 1x02, the pilot two-parter.  Although it still owes a lot to her vision, it's a lot bigger show now with a lot more different creative visions involved.

Personally i never was a fan of "Destiny". but i do believe that people can only go so far with their free will.

Meaning that because ones cutie mark is one thing, why does that mean they are tied to doing it?

It understandable if, per say a pony is a singer, or a baseball player, that they would be best doing what they do best, but what about if it isnt, like why can't ponies have free choice?

The thing im hitting at is mainly the royal guard. Does it mean that all of the royal guards are practically aryans, born and raised to guard the princess like roman storm troopers? or could they be stallions who had tallent, and careers, but they decided to join the military?

I remember one of my favorite stories of all time is a cup of joe by the Descendant, in it, Pony Joe was a soldier in the equestrian aremy and became a royal guard and then dcided to open his doughnut shop with the money he earned.

still though, cutiemarks related to fighting and killing by fanfiction writers are immediately poor characters in my opinnion. THink outside the box, there are ways to rationalize it.

>>847030 I kind of view destiny in stories a lot like I do love; I don't believe in either of them, but in order for the story to make sense you have to pretend that they exist...well, most of the time, at least :pinkiesick:

interesting that 2 other people would bring up Babylon 5, but that's exactly what I'm reminded of too.

Babylon 5 was a sci-fi TV series about a space station called Babylon 5.

Near the end of the show, they blew up the space station.

So there was no more Babylon 5, and everybody's plots were pretty much resolved, it was supposed to be the end of the story.

......and then the show was picked up for another season - and it was terrible.

I'm not saying that's where MLP will go, Babylon 5 was a serial TV drama and MLP is a kids show about candy colored ponies.

MLP can be different, this doesn't have to be an "endgame" story for it.

This show isn't even the kind of thing that even has an "ending", it's more like any episodic cartoon show and it just runs until there is no longer any interest in it. Like Family Guy or The Simpsons, they just get into something new next week .
