Don't care about your fav DC character. Suck a dick, DC!
On a DC note (sorry), I saw a bit of Smallville last night (I am actually in love with Erica Durance as Lois Lane), and thought that I really want to write an essay on the role of journalism in superhero narratives. Newspapers are central to both Superman and Spiderman, for example. After that, I need to give it a bit more thought.
Since the Planet arc, he's become infinitely more complex a character, and I love that they've turned Banner into a wildly selfish prick who actually has less morals than his hulking counterpart. Beautiful idea.
Red hulk was a terrible idea though, and the World War Hulks arc is fucking awful.
Second: Moon Knight (under the new writer). Oddest character ever created.
ok not really probably gambit
The Human Torch
I hate DC. Marvel comics are always so much more nicely drawn.
I can't stand that bastard in 5th though.
Even in Civil War, which I thought was generally brilliant, he's meant to be a key character and I still end up thinking "meh".
he's not apologised, *still*, and he's still a dick too. Also fucking CRAP that siege bowed out norm's rule with a 'my armour stops yours', three-panel, bullshit clause. Boring as sin.
But ultimately, if I want a playboy billionaire with inner turmoil who's used his money to create gadgets that transform him into a superhero... well, you get the picture.
because he's a millionaire playboy, and therefore super arrogant, an alcoholic through excess, and never thinks he's wrong. Also since extremis he's gotten a bit more sci fi, which is nice.
Seriously fuck the new spiderman suit that the scarlets have got now.
He's way more enjoyable as well. Like, Batman is an old bore, ay moaning and brooding all the time. Batman has no personality, whereas Iron Man has bags of it. And his gadget suit is a thousand times better than Batman's, showing he's a better scientist. He can fly, ffs - how come Batman's never built himself jet-powered wings? In conclusion, Iron Man > > > > > > > > > > Batman. Cheers.
Batman is iconic. For every piece of shit the character has appeared in (and they are legion), he's also been used in groundbreaking, stunning, moving works of art.
Iron Man is an action figure. Yeah, his suit is awesome (too awesome - the last film was so dull, there's no excitement in the action sequences because there's zero sense of risk), but it's the vulnerabilites that make a character fun.
I wanted to say Spiderman but I recently got a few back issues and was really irritated by them, so he's out!
- Deaths Head (character in transformers/doctor who, just the first one though)
I've always seen him as one of the most underrated X-men.
Jean Grey(although mostly because of the version of her that's portrayed in X-men Noir comic, who is genuinely terrifying)
especially since all the akkaba shit started flying
I tried to post up in the bitch earlier but it's not here. Bet it magically reappears when I post this.
Anyway, not to sound like a twat, but now that marvel have bought up the rights to marvelman/miracleman, it's got to be him. Here's hoping for him and kid marvelman in mvc3, and a stage set in a London town where the paving slabs have been replaced by dead babies
time-hopping future warrior and sometime x-man
actually when i was well into comics i used to wish that the whole X-family of comics and characters existed independently of the rest of the marvel universe. they were always so much more interesting and independent most of the time anyway and the whole race/AIDS thing that kept cropping up would make a lot more sense if there weren't so many other superheroes blasting about the place.
he actually has the shoryuken and says it in MvC3. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mEa7v_gSwCc&playnext_from=TL&videos=qsOh2I2JFTw brilliant
