I've never cared about someone taking HGH or anything like that. As long as you don't abuse those drugs and it's not against competition rules why should I care?

Yea it doesn't bother me too much. It's their body.

But all those veins do look ****ing horrible. I don't see how that's a good aesthetic. It's like a Rob Liefeld character come to life.

I believe Stallone uses HGH but I think his skin mainly looks that way from sun damage and the fact that he's 68. Yea, he has very little water in his skin most likely from substances but I think that plays a smaller role.
Just to make it clear, I don't have any problem with him juicing because it is unethical or anything, the **** do I care about it.

It is mainly because of what it does to his body, it looks horrible - it is like plastic surgery in that way. And of what it might do to his body - we have all heard of the internal organs expanding, the nuts shrinking, etc. etc.

If anything it is out of concern, juicing at his age can't obviously be good for his body.

That was voted as the worst comic book drawing in a list and with good reason.

It is almost like modern art that way - the cubism of Picasso. It's like the profile shot and a frontal shot all fused together.

Either way its awful.

I think this is really relevant point, worth re-posting.

Can the last half dozen pages be moved to whatever body building/steroids thread we have on the Hype?

What's with all the physique talk?

Am I the only one who thinks Affleck looks good?

I'd say that he's starting to look good.

I'd say he looks great. When he strips all the fat he'll look much bigger anyway. He's obviously in the process of that now.

I think he looks great. Like I said, he already looks better than Bale did.

Broad shoulders really do a lot to achieve the "superhero" look, I'd say. Ben's gonna look great as Bruce and Bats on film - you watch!

His physique/look matters but I care far more about how he will act Bruce and Batman. That's where I'm concerned.

His build is passable but his acting...tbd.

He looks like his body is going to tear open at the veins.

God forbid Affleck or Cavill ever have to do this.
Not sure I would put this in the roided column for sure... Sly was quite a bit bigger when he was on them years ago. He is at a crazy low BF% though to look this vascular, but he is easily one suit size smaller than when he was pumping for volume back in the day.
If you actually watch any of his current typical workout routines you'll see why he looks like this while pulling out his glasses to read his ARP magazines. He puts an awesome amount of intense gym time in to look like this, and frankly is way more athletic than 90% of the dudes working out at half his age. You don't just pop roids or HGH and presto have these physiques without the real world work to back it up.

Also keep in mind, the body's muscle groups are the one thing you can develop and build up at any age... it is easier and quicker at the prime age groups for those hormones, but even long after the 30s natural internal HGH levels can be spiked from heavy lifting backed up with lots of sleep to recover.

Who gives a **** how Stallone and Arnie look these days? Is this not the Batfleck thread?

Yeah, he's making good progress. You can't expect the guy's physique to be as awe-inspiring as Hugh Jackman's in The Wolverine and X-Men: DoFP. An achievement like that takes years of commitment and perseverance.

This is exactly the case... there are a wide range of body shapes on the Batstunt team, so even though everyone's headshots might be similar they have each suit done up individually to have the final external result within a certain threshold no matter the internal shape it's wrapped around. So the 6' tall skinny dude in the suit will look indistinguishable in motion compared with the Fleckster suited up.
