If it's crap ... We'll tell you
Let's get some general superhero talk going. Some debates, conversations, anything!
I'll start- I recently posted something on here about who would win in a fight between Captain America and Bane. Boh characters who had somekind of expiriement or venom to make them bigger and stronger, I say Cap would win though.
Anyone like to share? start a conversation or debate?
I would like to say that I like my heroes to be fun instead of Dark and Gritty, Granted not kid stuff like Marvel Adventures more like Mark Waid's Daredevil and Indestruible Hulk where the Heroes seem to enjoy themselves and the use of their powers, however I always have a soft spot in my heart for Deadpool.
I totally agree my man. The characters seem more realistic when they actually enjoy having their powers and doing what they do.
i personally haven't liked hulk since the end of incredible hulks. i'm mostly into female characters and only started reading hulk when red hulk was introduced (she-hulk and a bunch of other female heroes went on a hunt for him) and i just got hooked even after their story was wrapped up i stayed on. never thought i would ever pick up a hulk title (smash and destroy is not my cup of tea) but that whole storyline was so good with all the mysteries and twists and turns. then they had the whole hulk family era (which should have lasted longer) and im a big fan of family based heroes (x-men, teen titans, fantastic four). the dynamic of friends (jla) getting together to go bust some heads versus the dynamic of a family (x-men) tackling a social threat are totally different, and the family dynamic of the hulks made me love the series and then it ended. the next series was just awful and wierd. indestructible hulk was just boring. i was hoping they would show the floating head thing but they never did so i dropped it after issue 2. whenever that mystery is solved i'll just read it on wikipedia
The floating head/ R.O.B showed up at the end of issue 3, but yeah everyone likes their own series and thats fine if you don't like it, I just happen to really enjoy the series is all.
so can you tell me what it is? is it bruce like everyone was predicting?
What the robot?No, it's a machine that S.H.I.E.L.D built to keep a watch on him.
I, although am not that familiarized with comics, I have been managing to get my hands on some nice comic books. But this said I just wanted to mention that my favorite superheroes are Wolverine, Batman and, as of late, Green Arrow. For my favorite villains it would be pretty hard. Magneto would probably be on the top of this list, followed by Venom and Galactus. I hope I didn't post anything stupid over here.
Not at all! I've been taking an interest in Green Arrow as well and I still need to see the show!
Not a big serial comic book fan, but I do read some graphic novels. I have read Watchmen, LoEG 1 and 2, Batman The Killing Joke, We3, and some of The Sandman. My favorite is probably Watchmen, though I LOVE the tripod designs in LoEG. I dressed up as Rorschach for Halloween once.
I am mostly familiar with comic book characters thanks to various cartoons. My favorite is probably Green Lantern due to his concept. I like that he is not the only one of his group. As for actual characters, Batman and Superman are probably my favorites when they are done well. This may be silly, but my favorite villains are counterpart villains, like Killer Moth and Scorpion.
Killer Moth! that's awesome man. What do you like about him?
I like that he is a silly counterpart villain. He fits with the Batman motif very well. Batman is a bat who is attracted to darkness while moths are attracted to light. Batman is dark and serious, Killer Moth wears garish colors and is comedic. They are both gadgetry based characters, and have similar tech. Moth has a mothmobile, moth signal and moth cave just like Batman. I think there is a lot of untapped potential for such a villain and I don't think the cartoons or comics exploit that the way they should.
I love counterpart villains that play on whatever motif the main characters have. Scorpion is an arachnid like Spiderman for example. I like the various villainous Lantern Corps as they play off the "insert color" Lantern, as well as the emotion element. Hulk has the Abomination who is green and strong like him, but he also has the Leader who is the exact opposite. For a non-comic book example, I like Wario and Waluigi. The sillier they are the better, and I think Killer Moth is the silliest.
