First, let me go back and say this about Logan: It didn't even really dawn on me that X-24 was fully infused with adamantium like Logan was. I thought maybe just his claws, like Laura. I figured that was why his head explodes like a watermelon. That's what a hollowpoint magnum round does to a skull (Just reiterating my frustration at the idea of an indestructable metal expanding from impact here. That's the physics that my brain can't get around.). But I still headcanon the reason it killed was more to do with how his healing factor was at it's lowest efficiency and less about the projectile's material. Kind of a stupid decision by the scientists, a second (twenty-fourth?) Wolverine with even less conscience.
Comic book magic.
But back to the point. I still disagree, the gun physics do already exist without the need for super science comic book magic. The problem isn't the gun, or even 99% of the bullet, but with the durability of a fictional metal projectile. Domino argument: If A is possible (if adamantium can damage adamantium), then A's possibility makes B possible, and so on and so forth. At the end of this debate, I just want to point out I don't really accept that A is possible. I'm just conceding that if A were possible, then the Redhawk and Night Special would be handguns that could fire the necessary rounds to make it happen. Higher grade propellants already exist for larger caliber weapons, so if anything you could just load the round with one of those since you wouldn't have to worry about the extra heat warping/melting the projectile. The physics are there. Which really begs the question: If A were possible then why didn't someone just coat a cannonball and blast Wolverine? Probably because the movie would end in two seconds.
"Look, there's Wolverine!"
"... and there, and there, and there ..."
Actually, why didn't they use cannons in the first place? His bones are coated, not his joints. It wouldn't keep his limbs attached. Really sloppy assassination attempts.
First episode was pretty good, especially if you consider that creepypasta is just a high school kid's crowd-sourced fanfiction. Felt the swinging camera single room photography for the second room really turned the creepiness up a notch. Of course, then the commercials kill any built up tension. Also can it really be called a jump scare if it's telegraphed worse than the punches in a Hogan / Ultimate Warrior match?
Channel Zero returned with a new season on Sci Fi.
It's been made official: Joss Whedon has cut out Lex Luthor from Justice League. So no Eisenburg ... which as far as characters good riddance. Of all the faults in BvS, he was a pretty freakin' huge one. Not sure how it'll affect the overall narrative of JL, or the DCEU in general, but I'm not complaining.
Nothing is set in stone, but according to RenewCancelTV ABC has already canceled The Inhumans. The network is promoting it as "the complete series" instead of "the first season."
20th Century Fox CEO Stacey Snider recently described the upcoming New Mutants movie as "The Shining with horny teenagers."
Maybe they're trying to push for an R rating?

Great effort has been put into making sure they’re differentiated. New Mutants is about these teenagers who are just coming into their powers. It’s like watching mutants go through adolescence and they have no impulse control, so they’re dangerous. The only solution is to put them in a Breakfast Club detention/Cuckoo’s Nest institutional setting. It protects the people on the outside, but it’s strange and combustible inside. The genre is like a haunted-house movie with a bunch of hormonal teenagers. We haven’t seen it as a superhero movie whose genre is more like The Shining than 'we’re teenagers let’s save the world.
