FUCK
YES
IDW’s been one of the better holders of the Transformers comic liscence (Fuck Dreamwave and Pat Lee.)
I hope ponies get the same treatment that TF did and we get a Spotlight series. Spotlight was one of the best TF comics I’ve seen, giving a specific TF the main focus of the entire comic. We get that with the show already, but a comic series would be even better.

Heh, what I’d like to know is if the ponies had a comic at the time, would they have been part of the Infestation storyline thing that seems to have ran through EVERYTHING that IDW had at the time.

Lol, I’m sure the answer would be no, but it’d be pretty funny.

Ever since I saw that Fighting is Magic game, I was like, “yes, Nightmare better be somewhere in there” or I’m going to be disappoint.

They said they wouldn’t have costumes or crossovers. Also, they only are gonna have the mane6 for the release. They probably will have you as dlc.

I think what they said was that the mane 6 were going to be single player only, but they’re going to have multiple characters for multiplayer.

Shame I suck at fighting games and am always on the losing end.

All I can say though, I hope the characters could be taken out and used for MUGEN, that would be damn awesome.

Well, hopefully it will, she’d have more appearances there then she did in the show, which would be kinda sad.

Checkout their FAQ. It says that the mane6 will be the only ones available for release.

Well, this is the official artist’s character study sheet.
Notice the ‘Luna is best pony.’
Though it’s technically up to the writer, I bet she’ll make an appearance or two.

@Sketch, below
Yeah, it’s been floating around for a while.
I think most people just assumed it was fan art until today!

@Mane6
I believe they said that they would release the game at first with only the main six available to play, then they would steadily offer up new secondary characters on some kind of schedule afterwards.

Dafuq? I could’ve sworn they said there were going to be more then just the mane 6.

@DeadParrot: I saw that somewhere, probably here in the gallery, and the fact that it’s done by the people who are now drawing the comic make this quite awesome.

Ummm, you misunderstand.

Once they finish the mane 6 they’ll release the game in beta, then release the rest of the 17 character one at a time.

@Dac regarding Luna:

How has she been fucked over by the show? She had her own episode, something Celestia hasn’t had yet. Hell, Shining Armor and Cadence had about as much screen time as Celestia did in Season 2, and they were in two episodes, total. Luna isn’t fucked over any more than any other secondary character. She only seems like that because Lunafags whine about how she’s only had one episode.

@IDW:

Hopefully it’s not like the Zebra King ‘comics’…

Did I just ruin your hopes and dreams?

Anyways, I think it’d be pretty neat, and all of that. Not much else to say on it.

@NMM:

Celestia may not have her own episode, but she makes appearances or is mentioned quite a bit. Luna is forgotten usually and I would like to know where exactly she goes of to all the time. She is never around. She is never at any of the public events and she missed the wedding. It’s just kinda odd.

Just a word of advice. I may use strong language, but don’t take it too seriously.

Luna got twice as much screen time as Zecora in season 2 so the Luna fanboys have no right to complain.

Yeah, after the crap in Season 1 and early Season 2, let’s not get started on that again.

I won’t argue with that, but he is right, you do see Celestia more then Luna, even after her Season 2 centered episode.

Just what is she doing all that time? Oh wait.

As for the comic, I’m still hoping for a crossover. I know most people are going to say Dr. Who (obviously), but I’ll go against the grain and say either Star Trek or Ghostbusters.

@Dac:

Luna was gone for a thousand years. Celestia is till by far the main monarch of Equestria, because she has been for so long. That said, Luna had a healthy amount of screen time for a secondary character. Celestia is similar to Spike in that she’s a supporting main character, just less prevalent.

As for why Luna is absent, it’s pretty obvious that she is nocturnal, as we have yet to see her during the day, and she only has a job at night. So it’s understandable she’s out and about less during the day, which is when everything happens.

@Gigatoast:

I know. Luna grabbed such a massive chunk of the brony fandom so easily that they bitch whenever she doesn’t have the most screentime. I don’t dislike Luna, and I think it’d be nice to see her more often, but goddamn, I don’t think she needs to be the main character.

I’m allowed to complain about them, my brother is a Twi/Lunafag for no explicable reason. He can’t even explain why.

I love Egophilliac, he’s the best.

I wouldn’t say the main character, but if Celestia is around, and it’s night, and they’re shown in Canterlot, yeah, I’d like to see her.

Hell, it was night at the Gala episode and she was nowhere to be found, that’s why I enjoyed the Wedding episode, cause while she oddly didn’t have a part in helping defend the city for whatever reason, at least we saw her.

As far as number of appearances goes, yes, but in terms of actual screen time Celestia was barely in season 2, with less then half as much dialogue. Most of the time she just showed up at the end of an episode for a few seconds and if she’s lucky gets to say a sentence or two.

She’s never actually been the main focus of a story either.

Now this topic seems to be going off the rails somewhat, I’d like to take this moment to remind everyone of one of the simple truths of life on this earth.

You can try to rationalize why Luna isn’t shown as much as celestia, but does that change the fact that I would like to see her more? No. I’m not demanding more screen time, im not saying the writers suck, I’m just saying I would like to see her more. That’s all. She is never at public events and I find that strange, but let’s say they never show her again, I woudnt really care that much. Really, I’m just saying it would be nice to see her more, but it’s up to them what they want to do with her.

Speaking as a Luna fan myself, I have this to say:
Celestia appears constantly throughout the show. Here and there, like the Ponyville Confidential as one of the stories in the gossip articles. I am not asking for Luna to get more episodes. I would have been fine if she had made more small-time appearences rather than getting her own episode. So far she’s been sort of a one-shot character so far. One episode and two other appearences. Celestia’s still got a strong role. So overall, I would love to see Luna get more small appearences and Celestia get her own episode to make it fair for her. I like Celestia slightly less than Luna, but that doesn’t mean I want Luna to get all the screentime, just maybe a small appearence here and there.
Tl;Dr, give Celestia her own episode and have Luna make small cameos. Problem solved

I think giving all the secondary characters a bit more prominence couldn’t hurt, really. The Cakes are Pinkie’s living-mates, Spike is kind of a major character, the Royal Couple are definitely important, etc. That includes Celestia and Luna, as they are both pretty major, and very important. I just think that Celestia’s short appearances make sense for her, since she is Twilight’s mentor. She’s going to be listening as the ponies report, or something along those lines. Luna is nocturnal, which made her an obvious choice for the Halloween episode, since it’s a nighttime holiday. It was really just how the mechanics of Season 2 worked out, in my opinion.

Though I would like to see Celestia have an episode, of course, I’m not sure how likely it would be, seeing as how her role is pretty much just a character to show lesson or listen to what the ponies learned. Like we said earlier, though, a flashback episode is possible, and that would give screentime for both the sisters and open up more time for Discord, which I’m sure a lot of fans (myself included) would enjoy.

However, I don’t think we can really complain about Luna’s screentime in Season 2, as she was immensely prominent, compared to others, especially in dialogue and characterization. It’s fine and dandy to hope for more screentime, and I’d approve of that because it’s natural, but I don’t think any of the secondary characters were fucked over by the show in Season 2.

@Gigatoast

@Celestia/Luna stuff
Pyro’s got it right.
Give Celestia an episode and then put the two princesses on reasonably equal ground as far as cameos and special event appearances go.
That would both satisfy the fans of each and make more sense in-universe with their jointly ruled kingdom.

Ending of Celestia’s episode

Dear… wait a sec why the fuck am I writing a letter to myself…

Jul 12, 2012 at 05:16PM EDT

A Celestia episode might be good, depending on how it is written. As for making Luna appear more often, I think they should make it where Luna appears at night and Celestia in the day, with few exceptions for both. Also, if they are writing a letter at night, it would be to Luna, but both sisters get to read it, and it would be addressed to both, and vice versa for the day, giving them more equal roles, as it was in in the story and should be in the show. That’s my 2 cents on the matter.

@Where the fuck is Luna all the time?

Well, my personal head canon has always been that Luna is a duty-obsessed workaholic who isn’t afraid to get a little blood on her hooves. We don’t see her making many royal visits or reading friendship letters because she’s too busy doing important shit.

I like to think that during the royal wedding, Luna was out in the field hunting and killing changelings. I mean, weddings are all well and good, but not when there’s a freaking menace to contend with!

@What is Luna doing: Whatever she wants to do. I think she’d have enough power to at least be able to forego sleep as much as she wishes. Same as Celestia. Luna has her spare time in the daytime and Celestia’s at night.

Its quite obvious that everyone know who is the best pony. The best pony who is the best party animal the most intellectual…the most wise…and the most interesting…

IT’S GUMMY YOU FOOLS, ITS ALWAYS GUMMY!
I admire that little alligator that lives in Pinkie’s home that Pinkie takes the pleasure to do cosplays in his honor.
