You are sitting in your room watching whatever it is you usually watch. You are jumped when your living room window breaks as a small flying green object appears in your room. Its a green ring! It says "[insert name here] of Sector 2814, You have the ability to overcome great fear. Welcome to the green lantern corps" Excited you accept it. Congratulations you are now a green lantern but whats this?! "Power level critically low" the ring says. Those useless no good guardians forgot to charge your ring and you dont know where your lantern is so you can recharge it! You only have enough energy to make one construct. What do you create?
You are walking the backways of Metropolis when you find the man of steel doubled over in an alleyway. Upon closer examination, you realize the poor man has a very large thornlike chuck of kryptonite stuck in his hand (and its giving off a strange hue too). You remove it and Kal-El, grateful, offers you one favor, he will do anything you want just once, no matter how evil or good. What do you ask from superman? Me, i would ask him to make my own little personal fortress of solitude if i could.
The DC universe is filled with lanterns of all sorts of colors, shapes, and sizes and some are cooler than others. Who is your favorite lantern? For me personally, I had a hard time picking between the rage fueled Atrocitus and the greedy Larfleeze and right now, i'm leaning more towards Larfleeze as being my favorite. It's hard for me to not to love the greedy s.o.b. If you asked me this question years ago, I would've said Kyle Rayner, the first lantern i ever became familiar with in comic books.
What do you think was the best anime/animated tv series ever? Name your top one or two on your list. For me, the best anime/animated tv series ever was Cowboy Bebop. My second favorite is Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood. It was very close to being first on my list but Cowboy Bebop was just too good.
Once in awhile two or more comic books will do a crossover. Some are decent but a few are epic like Spiderman Vs Superman, Batman vs Predator, and Robocop vs Terminator. Comic book fans like these crossovers because we want to see them cross "swords" or we are just interested in seeing how they interact with each other. What crossover would you like to see and if its already been done, which crossover would you like to see again. I always wanted to see a Judge Dredd/Robocop crossover.
Alot of comic book collectors like myself have stories about how they got introduced to the fun world of comic books whether they were introduced to the world of comic books by a family member/relative or they were in a place that sold comic books and made a curiosity driven purchase that got them hooked into the world of comic books. But what was your first comic book "love"? What was the first comic book series you started collecting once the world of comic books had you in its clutch (and its fingers in your wallet). For me, my first comic book love was the short lived comic book series "Go Boy 7". What was yours?
Just discovered the biography of Bor, father of Odin on comicvine. very fascinating character. i hope Marvel Now! brings back this character if he hasnt already been back yet. In the hands of an most excellent writer, this character could be very interesting. It would be interesting to see what affect the return of Bor to Asgard would have politically. would Asgard suffer a splitting into factions that want and don't want Bor back as ruler, whether he wants it or not? How would odin or thor react if they found out (if they havent yet) who really banished Bor. It would be great to see the trio, Bor+Odin+Thor take on a celestial or two. what do my fellow comic book readers think?
I'm excited about the new directions this new dark spiderman will go but i must admit i am worried that doc ock will not take peter parkers life lessons to heart and become that masked menace that jonah jameson always said that spiderman was. what do you think about the new "superior" spiderman?
