In the interest of fairness, the next one can be something titled DC related.

How exactly does and Off-Topic Thread work? What sort of things does one discuss in the Stark Tower? Is it more of a general anything goes discussion of all-thing Superheroes or discussion of things not Superhero related at all?

Pretty much answered your own question...

Alright then, I like it - a bit of anything goes.

Right so, if you could be a Superhero, what would your power(s) be and what's your Superhero name...

I'd be a vigilante with the ability to freeze time and manipulate situations while time is frozen, like disarming and restraining criminals while in their frozen state. While I'd mostly use my powers for good, I'd certainly have criminal attributes also, like abusing my power to steal from banks, etc. in order to pay for my extravagant lifestyle.

They'd call me Stop-Watch!

Or if you were a mastermind you could be Clock-Wise.

Has to be teleportation for me, who needs to put up with traveling when you can just appear somewhere.
Handy if you get cornered and for stealing things too. I mean . . . to protect the innocent of course.

Just missing a good name.

I'd probably pick an established hero like The Flash, having super speed would be very very handy

And this is my 21st of May sorted , hopefully it'll be a celebratory Saturday

Lord knows I need something to celebrate given how woeful United have been this season.

How come Stark Tower does not appear in any Daredevil city shots, even though they mention 'battle of New York' in newspapers?

I can't remember off the top of head, but do they do citywide shots or just shots of Hell's Kitchen? I mean Manhattan Island is pretty big.
Hell's Kitchen is on the West Side of Manhattan, whereas Stark Tower is supposedly on Park Avenue (where the MetLife building is in real life) on the East Side of Manhattan, so it depends from what angle the shots are being taken - if Daredevil is on a rooftop, the backdrop could be north or south of Hell's Kitchen rather than facing east of Hell's Kitchen where Stark Tower is.

Still going through series 2, at a leisurely pace, and tbh I don't recall seeing any cityscapes or vistas of the larger city. If they occured, it was very brief. Daredevil has tended to keep its exterior shots to tight, street / building level or below. Suppose it makes sense in maintaining that condensed, insular feeling of Hello Kitchen being its own world.

It's just an idea, but would it be possible to move the Marvel Cinematic Universe General thread over here, instead of having it in the films forum?

Decided to rewatch the Marvel movies from the last few years and just got up to Captain America: Winter Soldier, and that scene with Peggy Carter and what I believe is Alzheimer's still gets me everytime.
