Comments: Guess what I watched again this weekend for the 100th time?
Here we have Mal, the erstwhile captain of Serenity. I never watched Firefly and had no interest in seeing Serenity in the theatre. What I fool I was. Now I watch it whenever it comes on HBO/Cinemax and I am geeked up about the special edition DVD that comes out tomorrow (I think). I really liked the flick.
Mal is pretty much street level, but among the folks in the Serenity universe, he's pretty dangerous. Given his combat ability and his leadership skills, he is even more dangerous when given some teammates to play off of.
I found it interesting in reading Baron's thread where he defended his reasons for not giving him Master Plan. I can certainly see where he was going, but I gave it to him for the simple fact that even though Mal's plans are haphazard and dangerous, they still get the job done. It may not be a plan like Dr. Doom's or Lex Luthor's, but it still seems to always give he and his crew the advantage.
More Serenity folks coming up.

Actually, if you watch the end of the original movie, you can see where the lycans blood flows into his crypt and with him having the Corvinus bloodline, the blood he consumes turns him into a hybrid. Until that time, he was just a vampire, albeit a very powerful one.
They made a big point of addressing that in Lucian's reasons for finding Michael Corvin because he was the descendent of Marcus, and his father William Corvinus, who contained the only known bloodline to be able to support both the lycan and vampire viruses.
