Ducktales 2017 Thought

Because I apparently have an emotional weakness for stories about grumpy old men being redeemed by the love of family.

One of the neat things about the original Ducktales and the Ducktales reboot is the first episode of the premiers of both shows follow similar outlines. In both, Donald takes the kids to stay with Scrooge, Scrooge wants nothing to do with them, locks them in a room and passes them on to his butler/housekeeper, the kids break out, get in trouble with Scrooge, who still wants nothing to do with them, but then after a series of misadventures in which they have to work together, Scrooge and the kids warm up to each other and family adventures ensue. The plot specifics are different, but it’s kind of doing a similar thing.

Sort of.

One of the big differences between the first episode of the original and the first half of the reboot premier is in what kind of change of heart Scrooge has at the end. At the end of the OG episode, the reason Scrooge warms up to Huey, Dewey, and Louie is partly because they help him in a scrap with the Beagle Boys, but mostly because he realizes that he’s lonely and that he kind of loves having these kids around. The reason Scrooge warms up to the kids at the end of the first half of the reboot premier, on the other hand, is because he’s impressed with them and they remind him of how much he loves adventure. (At least, that’s the outward reason.) Donald and the boys move in at the end of the second half and they start to become a family, but they’re not quite there yet. We haven’t seen a, “What a family!”, “Fine, take the dime, Magica. Just don’t hurt the boy,” or even a big family hug moment from reboot Scrooge yet.

The reboot is playing the character as meaner, tougher, and far less openly affectionate than he was in the original series—and like the Barks and Rosa versions of the character, the reboot version is probably going to have to be dragged kicking and screaming before he openly admits how much he cares about family, maybe even before he shows that he’s vulnerable at all. Because, and correct me if I’m wrong, besides some jokes and that little “Used to be a big deal?” moment in the premier, reboot Scrooge has been a nonstop invulnerable powerhouse of wit and badassery. He’s played as always five steps ahead of everyone, and the only time he’s really been caught off guard so far has been, again, in the premier when Dewey throws his, “Family is nothing but trouble!” line back in his face. Caught off guard is probably the wrong phrase. Scrooge is stunned. It takes him a moment to recover, and when he does, he’s furious, frighteningly so.

So here’s a thought: Family is a sore subject for Scrooge, and not just because of whatever happened with Della and the spear of Selene.

Matt Youngberg and Frank Angones have said that the reboot team is taking inspiration from every version of the Disney Duck universe to make their show. Anything’s fair game. Paperinik, Donald Duck’s alter ego from the Italian comics, could show up. We could get a reference to the infamous “A SEA MONSTER ATE MY ICE CREAM??!!!!??” scene from the original. A lot of Don Rosa’s version of Scrooge’s backstory, including his first confrontation with Glomgold and the genuinely horrible way he finds out about his ma’s death, could be there.

So here’s another thought: In the reboot continuity, this scene from The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck where Scrooge finally manages to push his family away for good:

(… including the part where Donald gives his uncle a well deserved kick in the butt …)

… happened at some point in reboot Scrooge’s life. Maybe it happned a little earlier or a little later, depending on how old this version of the character is supposed to be (seriously, HOW OLD ARE YOU?), but it happened. And the Christmas on Bear Mountain/Richest Duck in the World stories, or something like them, happened too, but instead of them involving an adult Donald and Huey, Dewey, and Louie meeting/remeeting Scrooge for the first time, it involved a teenage or young adult Donald and Della. It’s Christmas, Scrooge hasn’t spoken to any of his relatives in years, and he decides to play a prank on his young niece and nephew (because ‘everyone hates him, and he hates everybody’), but ends up being so impressed with them that he invites them over for Christmas dinner and they become an awesome team of adventurers.

Until Della disappears.

And Scrooge gets estranged from his family all over again.

Addendums to this thought:

1. If Donald ‘grew up’ with Gladstone, this suggests Hortense, Donald and Della’s mom, passed away when they were still fairly young and that they were raised by Grandma Duck, like they are in some comics. This would mean that Donald lost his parents and his sister. No wonder he’s overprotective.

2. If that’s true, and if reboot Scrooge did have the same family disowning blowout as Rosa’s Scrooge did, then it’s possible he never made up with Hortense.

3. I’m guessing and/or hoping that Matilda, Scrooge’s other sister, is still alive and shows up at some point.

4. Della’s disappearance isn’t actually Scrooge’s fault, but he and Donald both feel like it is.

5. WHY DID DELLA TAKE THE SPEAR OF SELENE AND WHERE DID SHE GO?

anonymous asked:

Which rouges know that batman is Bruce? I️ was listening to all of the episodes/recordings and noticed that Crane and Nigma know. (Although Edward did discover Bruce’s alter-ego in the comics, so that makes sense.) How did they figure it out? Or is it just common knowledge?

I’m not one for clickbait, but…

Lights Introduces Her Alter Ego and Comic Books - UNCUT

Figuring you read my post from yesterday, I think you’ll have a better understanding of the reason behind my tattoo. - My tattoo represents the meaning behind the mask, the mask itself, and my overall love Hip-Hop & comic books. - Let’s start with Dr. Doom. (As you may already know I’m a huge fan of his.) Victor Von Doom (his birth name) wears his mask due to facial deformations. He was constructing a machine to bring his mother, Cynthia Von Doom, back to life, only for it to malfunction and explode right in his face. As the tale goes, the so called deformation is really just a tiny scar on his face that he is insanely insecure about. Which brings it down to me. I’ve been insecure since I was 6 years old. Constantly worried with my body fat & kids teasing me on my looks. *spoiler alert* In the 200th issue you see above, there’s constant battles as usual, with the Fantastic 4. To my surprise, Mr. Fantasic suddenly rips off Doom’s mask towards the end of the story. The story continues as Doom becomes horrified as he looks at his own reflection. He then becomes emotionally unstable that he no longer bothers to deal with the Fantastic 4 and ends up in psychiatric hospital. (Now you can see the connection I have with Doom.) I later discovered an “underground” (not so much underground since all of a sudden everyone loves him - which upsets me greatly) rapper who goes by the name of Daniel Dumile, or MF Doom, as some of you may know. -For those who don’t know, he does a few of his alter egos based on the comic book character Doctor Doom.- The first song I heard by Dumile, was “Fancy Clown” off the album Madvillain. I immediately fell in love when I heard the sample off ZZ Hill’s “That Ain’t The Way To Make Love.” I was going through an on & off relationship at the time and this song honestly helped me deal with the situation I do not wish to speak of at this very moment. He immediately became one of my favorite artists as I dug through some of his earlier work; and for the fact that he samples oldies & comics. So my tattoo, a mixture of Dr. Doom’s insecurity, with my love for hip hop music - MF Doom’s mask, and in stencil form- personal as some of you may know I make stencils myself. 💞

someday… someday the world will be ready for my ma kent headcanons…
