I find myself getting more and more frustrated by all these people that watch Spider-Man (2); X-Men (2); The Hulk; The Fantastic Four; The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen; and the list goes on (for about a mile of 10 pt, Arial font); and then try and act like they know the story lines of the heroes involved. These are the same people many times that get upset if you act like you know Star Wars from watching the movies, or even Harry Potter. A majority of these people would rather die than actually read a comic book because it has pictures.
Here's my own little way of clearing up some comic book tid bits that too many people don't know but should (In my opinion):
Spider-Man: believe it or not, your friendly every day Spider-Man DID infact wear a cap of sorts. He has webs under each arm that serve as miniature caps. Also, the web, was something Peter created, not something that came with the territory of his name.
X-Men: One thing I've go to say is that Rogue is driving me nuts. First of all, before she ever even got to the Xavier Institute she had already gained her strength and flight abilities. I'd also like to add that the X-Men in general were just so much more skilled than this ball of "crap" that Holly Wood is feeding us.
That's about as far as my knowledge of Marvel (a major comic book company) goes so I'll switch over to Batman and the other DC boys now:
Batman: So far I'd have to say that Batman: Begins takes the cake as my favorite comic book movie simply for putting parts of the comic book Batman into the movie Batman. Umm, one complaint is gonna be all about Al Ghul's (if anyone knows the actually spelling, please let me know so I can fix it) ending in Batman. We see him going to his death in the train. Either he made it out alive (good) or he really did die (bad). This man had the fountain of freaking youth at his disposal.
Superman: I don't know how this movie is supposed to stack up but I pray that they don't just focus on his weakness to Kryptonite alone. The red sun is so much cooler (though obviously less likely for a first movie). Perhaps they'll have him get legitimately beaten up too, like in the comics.
Well that was fun and all but my true passion in comic books is not yet a movie. *sad face* I'll go through some unsung hereos now that I hope you get interested in as much as I have:
Green Lantern: This dude is only matched in super powers by Silver Surfer (who fights and defeats gods). There are Green Lanterns all throughout the universe and they all gain their powers through the lantern ring they wear chosing them. Each GL also has a different unique ability. In the Justice League animated series the GL has a defensive ring. In one case he is just unbeatable unless you have yellow. The ring for that GL is unaffected by the color yellow. At one point all but one of the GL's was killed and that one gained the powers of every other GL. He was a literal Demi-God. He could create and destroy planets with a thought. He gave it all up to basically keep his sanity.
Green Arrow: No, he's not another one of the Green Lanterns and no he's not JUST an archer. Green Arrow has super-human accuracy and has special tip arrows that he uses to do anything from blow up walls to catch a robber in a net. I've seen him actually use an arrow to track someone's car. He is the much more accurate, much less appreciated Batman. This dude is even rich if, that's what you like in a hero.
The Flash: Last, but certainly NOT least... The Flash is by far my favorite super-hero ever. Many people will use one of the races between him and Superman to say that Flash isn't really the fastest, but in reality he'd totally destroy Superman without breaking a sweat. The flash can make himself vibrate at speeds to slip through solid matter and can break hyperspeed to go into alternate dimensions (great stuff). If you can think of a super-hero that can save the world twice and still not be late to anything he needs to do then perhaps i'd consider chosing different favorite, but until then The Flash is my #1.
Well, I hope I informed some readers at least a little bit though I'm not expecting it because you probably "know all that already". Well, I enjoyed talking about one of my favorite past times. Maybe you will now too. Also, if you have any tidbits to add that you know of, please do. I'd love to learn some more about comics.
Capt. over and out!
