....My Favourite & Un-Favourite Superheroes And Why.....


........Favourites..................


........WONDER WOMAN!!!!.............. My # 1 favourite superhero of the ENTIRE pantheon of comic book heroes - DC & Marvel combined....... Lynda Carter brought her to television in a brilliant portrayal of the strength and integrity of the comic book character.



..........Raven from the Teen Titans........... deeply troubled empath with the Demon Dad - Trigon. I loved how she was handled in the comic books. So vulnerable and yet so profoundly intriguing. Loved it.......


......The Thing of the Fantastic Four........... I love this character.......... both in the books and in the films. I thought Simon Chiklis portrayed him brilliantly, which was a real shame coz the movies were NOT that good.........

...........Storm of the X-Men Marvel Comic Book......... in the comics I loved this character. She was kick arse and her weather powers were just awesome..............


........Superman............... I loved the portrayal of Superman by Christopher Reeve. He brought a humility and an earnestness to the character. I even liked Brandon Routh as Superman. Not perfect - but still a very good portrayal that was true to the character...........




..............Green Lantern............. I always loved the idea of the Green Lantern Corps and their ability to do basically whatever they wanted via their lantern powered ring. TOTALLY keen to see how Ryan Reynolds does...........

..............Batman............ The Heartbroken Billionaire Vigilante............... Love the latest reboot of the franchise and the choice of actor.............................


......UN-Favourites..........


...............Green Arrow................. never got into him......... the whole archer with the boxing glove arrow shtick didn't light my fire................

.............Invisible Girl/Woman......... whine whine whine........... didn't like her in movie or the books.................... puke...............


..........Cyclops of the X-Men................. all that power - such small cojones........... never liked the character........... again, whiney............


..........Storm in the X-Men movies.................... TERRIBLY written and not at ALL true to the comic books............. Storm is a ball buster......... not a woman who runs around wringing her hands about everything................. Poor Halle was made to look like an idiot in the first two movies......


.................................Don't get me started on these two.................... wrong on EVERY level............

.....................Starfire................. comic book porn with an empty head to match........ I'm surprised that they didn't just have her energy beams coming out of her nipples ***shudder***..............



.......................Robin.......... I don't know................. I just never liked the idea of Batman's sidekick except as a possible gay porn fantasy......................

..................................Raven of the Animated Series..................... Total travesty.............. she went from a powerful and multi-layered character down to a Valley Girl with a cape...................

.............................Plastic Man.............. Do I have to explain this one?........................

What are yours ? Love to hear who you guys like and don't :)

Shalom

though I like her powers, I always had a problem with wonder woman, or for that matter any female super hero who thought that she was superior to men and/or our cocks. It's OK for a female to have powers but she must always still be subservient to the power of the male cock.

Ok I love Storm too! One of my favorites for years!
But, in defense of Cyclops and Ivisible Woman... in the hands of good writers, they are great.
Have you read any of the Fantastic Four written by Grant Morrison, Mark Millar, or Brian Michael Bendis? The entire family is awesome when written by those guys.
And Cyclops was kicked up a notch by Grant Morrison back on New X-Men: E for Extinction. And he's been handled pretty well since that.

Okay I have to disagree about Robin and Starfire! LOL. I love the Teen Titans! lmao.
But we are totally in synch on Storm...especially that Halle Berry version!
UGH!

One of my all-time favorites is Aquaman

Ryder said...

I'm with you BosGuy, I love Aquaman! But I particularly love Superman, so essentially well meaning and "uncomplicated" (if that's possible for someone born on another planet, etc. etc......). Green Lantern has to be the most most overtly homoerotic superhero of ALL TIME!!!! That costume.......

Wonder Man said...

We love the same characters. I'm not a fan of Green Lantern or Arrow.

Storm taught me a lot about myself
