You guessed right, i'm from the Netherlands.

WOW!!!  Cool.  It's cool to comics and fictional characters with someone who lives outside the U.S.  Have you been to America?  If so, what do you like and dislike about America?

Haha, yeah i like America. I always entertain the idea to move to a different country in the future and America is one of my considerations. Then again i've never been there before so i'm not sure lol. But i like your language, the fact that you actually have like landscapes and nature, and how independent and free your culture is in regards to social ideas and norms.

Thank you, but we do have people that do speak other languages outside of English (which I do think is a great thing).  As for our culture, it has been inconsistent to a degree in terms of how we treat one another.  Also, since we're really on a thread talking about fictional characters, do you any suggestions for a Fantasy Fight because there is a fantasy fight thread on this forum.

A fantasy fight huh... gosh i'm not sure. I'd like to see Spawn square of against someone who could be an interesting fight for him, but i'd have no clue who that could be. Any ideas?

Sure.  As a matter of fact, I have notebook containing sections of Fantasy fights, one for fan choices.  One idea I could give you is Livewire vs. Electro.

Hello Ladies & Gentleman,

MDC here to give you another one of my favorite characters:

56b3f06842123_Dr.Strange.jpg.e852e47b5ee

Dr. Strange, Sorcerer Supreme.

One of my favorite Marvel characters of all time.  The most powerful sorcerer in the Marvel Universe.  Love his lore and backstory.  He had a tremendous impact in the Hulk's career.  He sent the Hulk to the Crossroads of Eternity to help him find peace.  He was also for many years one of his friends.  Founder and leader of the Defenders.  During the WWH/PH story line, he was a part of the Illuminati team that shipped the Hulk into space and told the Hulk that his rage and power in general meant nothing because he can destroy him with a mere twitch of a finger.  When I heard him say that, I'm like "DAMN!!!!  This is coming from a guy who struggles against science based opponents."  Loved the animated film.  Hope the cinematic film kicks ass.

Hello Ladies & Gentlemen,

The next two characters I am going to show you are:

Static Shock.jpgDanny_Phantom_Complete_Theme_Song).jpg

            Danny Phantom and Static Shock.

 

Two characters that have been heavily inspired by Spider-Man.  Back in the day, teenagers would often be used as sidekicks.  Until one day, where two great men, Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, decided that teenagers can be superheroes without being sidekicks.  Hence, Spider-man was born.  In the 1990s, a writer named Dwayne McDuffie, who had a huge role in the DCAU, looked at Spidey as a great inspiration to create Virgil Hawkins aka Static Shock, a teenage superhero with the powers of Electrokinesis.  In April of 2004, a guy named Butch Hartman also looked at Spidey as a great inspiration to create Danny Fenton aka Danny Phantom, a teenage superhero who is a human/ghost hybrid.  Like Peter, they didn't have a Superman, a Batman, nor a Captain America to mentor them and guide them.  They had to overcome their flaws and personal problems on their own as well controlling their skills and abilities.  As much as Dick is awesome, he had Bruce mentoring him and guiding him for most of his life.  It is also without question that Danny and Virgil are more powerful than Peter, but as we all know, that doesn't mean much.  I loved these character after watching their shows.  I was glad they put Virgil in Young Justice cuz that show was awesome.  I hope that these characters get new shows and or comics.

Hello Ladies and Gentlemen,

I'm so sorry for the long delay, but nether the less, here's another one of my favorite characters:

Juggernaut.jpg.f0a8b6e9a324778e323d1f36ffe00c86.jpg.89727dba80d40120761c25327190c15f.jpg

Cain Marko, the Unstoppable Juggernaut.

My personal favorite X-Men villain.  He is the step-brother of Professor Charles Xavier, founder of the X-Men.  I like Juggernaut a lot because while Cain is not exactly a good person, he isn't entirely evil.  While he did have a troubled childhood, his father, Kurt Marko was very abusive.  He abused Cain physically, mentally, verbally, emotionally, and spiritually.  Kurt's abuse caused Cain to bully Xavier despite Xavier's efforts to comfort Cain.  Kurt's abuse also caused Cain to lead a life of crime which resulted in him becoming the Juggernaut, one of the most powerful characters in the Marvel Universe.  Just to be clear, in the mainstream Marvel Universe, Earth 616, Juggernaut's powers are 100% magical.  His powers originated from a mystical gem belonging to an ancient, powerful, and evil demon known as Cytorrak.  As I mentioned before, Juggernaut is one of the most powerful characters of the Marvel Universe.  Juggernaut's raw power rivals the Hulk's, Thor's, Hercules', Blue Marvel's, Hyperion's, and the Sentry's.  Over the course of his career, he has engaged in battles with not only with the X-Men, but with Spider-Man, Thor, the Avengers, the Fantastic 4, and the Hulk.

While Juggernaut is mostly known as a villain, there was a time where he reformed.  During that time, he become a member of the X-Men & the Thunderbolts.  However, in the MC2 Marvel Universe, an alternate future, Juggernaut completely reforms, becomes a full fledged member of the X-Men, gets married and has a son who inherits his powers and becomes a member of A-Next, the MC2's version of the Avengers.

Hey guys,

I know it has a been a while, but I'm back.  The next character I will be talking about is:

Thor.thumb.jpg.58682755bd6b989a162dab6f0464d9af.jpg

The Might Thor himself, Thor Odinson.

I've been wanting to talk to you guys about my fandom for this character for quite some time, and what better way to do it than a few days before his new film is officially released.

Anyways, I've been a huge fan of Thor since my childhood.  I've read the comics and watched the cartoons.  What I love most about Thor is that like Superman, Thor is very humanized.  He does not have this mentality where certain people and task are beneath him.  Thor is willing to help regardless of the situation.  I really love his relationship with Jane Foster, who is the new Thor of the Marvel Universe.  I hope one day Thor and Jane become a couple again.  A founding member of  the Avengers and the team's first leader.  That's right, not many people know that before Cap joined the team, Thor was the team's first leader.  The Avengers originally consisted of Thor, Hulk, Iron Man, Hank Pym, and Janet Van Dyne.  Once the Hulk quit the Avengers at the end of issue 2, Cap came in then became the team's leader over time.  Of course, Thor is without a doubt one of the most powerful superheroes in all of fiction due to his god-like strength, stamina, nigh-invulnerability, and his ability to control  and manipulate the weather.  For decades, Hulk & Thor had this epic rivalry where they would constantly prove which of the two is strongest.  For years, that was one of the most iconic and popular moments in Marvel Comics history.  However, I really loved it when Thor got enhanced by the Odinforce.  When Thor had the Odinforce, he was insanely powerful.  Of course like always, all good must come to end.  Thor had the Odinforce for at least 3-4 years.  I hope Thor does get the Odinforce sometime in the movies. 

Speaking of the movies, I was so happy when Marvel did the first Thor movie back in 2011.  I was like, "Yes, it's about damn time."  I went to the see the film with my father and brother and I loved it.  Though as much as I like Chris Hemsworth portrayal of Thor in the MCU, I don't like the fact that Thor relies too much on his hammer.  Throughout the comics, Thor has been able to fight and kick ass without his hammer.  Plus, in the MCU, Thor is incredibly weak compared to his comic book counterpart. Other than that, I like MCU Thor. 

Anyways, I hope you like this episode/segment of Characters and Why I like Them.  I'll see you guys next time.  Peace.

Okay guys, since the Justice League film is coming out this Friday, I think it is time for me to talk about the final member of the team that will appear in the film.  Ladies & Gentlemen, I give to you:

Cyborg.png.ef5260215b849eecf1b9f345944fce3b.png

Victor Stone aka Cyborg.

In the original DC Comics Cyborg was never a founding member of the Justice League.  Although, he would join the team over time.  However, he is more so affiliated with the Teen Titans and the Titans.  I've been a fan of this character since I watched the 2003 Teen Titans animated series.  I mean how could we forgot that badass catchphrase of his, "BOOYA!!!".  I really like his backstory (mostly his original rather than his New 52 origin), and his character.  So full of optimism, charisma, and strong leadership.  Can't wait to see him kick ass on the big screen.

Hello Ladies and Gentlemen,

Welcome to my next installment of my Characters and Why I like them thread where tell you guys some of favorite fictional characters and why I like them.  This "episode" if you will is a very special one because his movie will be released tomorrow, April 5, 2019.  Folks, I'm here to talk about:

805792048_CaptainMarvel(BillyBatson).jpg.724bb217066248ede2c72ac470eec356.jpg

William "Billy" Joseph Batson, the original "OG" Captain Marvel.

I'm actually a pretty big fan of Captain Marvel (Billy Batson).  He's one of my top 15/top 20 favorite DC heroes.  I've been a fan ever since I read about him in the DC Encyclopedia when I was in 6th grade.  I find his backstory/origin (his original, classic backstory/origin) very interesting and compelling.  I like the fact that he is very similar to Superman in terms of character.  Like Superman, he is good natured, pure hearted, optimistic, charismatic, and morally righteous.  Although, it is safe to say that he is a much more light-hearted version of Superman. Another thing I find interesting about him is that during the Golden Age of Comics (more specifically throughout the 1940s and early 1950s), he was the most popular superhero in all of comics.  That is right, at one point in time, he was more popular than Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Flash, Green Lantern, Captain America, Namor the Sub-Mariner, and all of the other heroes that came out during that time.  However, the one thing I find the most interesting about him is that his powers derive from heroes and deities from Greek and Roman legends.  I find that very fascinating TBH.  For those who aren't too familiar with his abilities, here they are:

S for the Wisdom of Solomon

H for the Strength of Hercules

A for the Stamina of Atlas

Z for the Power of Zeus

A for the Courage of Achilles

M for the Speed of Mercury

With these abilities, Captain Marvel is the World's Mightiest Mortal and most importantly one of the DC Universe's most powerful superheroes.  As a matter of fact, I'd say he is in the top 5 if not top 3.

If you guys want to know my thoughts on his incoming film, it looks awesome.  I've been hyped for it since I saw the first trailer last year. Zachary Levi looks great as Captain Marvel and Asher Angel looks very good as Billy Batson.  TBH, it looks like the DCEU's best film to date.

Anyways, I hope you guys enjoyed this installment of Characters and Why I Like Them.  I'll see you guys next time.  PEACE!!!

Norrin Radd aka the Silver Surfer

Without question one of the most powerful characters in all of fiction. As big of a fan of Superman that I am, the Silver Surfer is without question far more powerful than Superman (and yet we still have fucktards and retards saying Superman is OP).  Comparing Superman's power level to the Silver Surfer is like comparing the strength of an ant to the strength of a human.  The Silver Surfer is cosmic level god, Superman is more of a demigod.  The Silver Surfer is capable of manipulating, projecting, absorbing, & mastering all forms of energy.  Superman has never been able to do that at all.

Really? I don't know a thing about these characters and the comics in general, so I always thought that Superman was the big deal.

Too bad Silver Surfer isn't as popular as other characters.

Don't worry about it.

As for Silver Surfer's popularity, he's in fact one of the most beloved and iconic Marvel characters of all time along with Spider-Man.

Hello Ladies and Gentlemen,

Welcome to today's installment of my Characters: Why I Like Them thread where I tell you some of my favorite fictional characters and why I like them. 

Today I am going to talk about:

1667424257_Superboy(ConnerKent).jpg.2e582ab31df1cf58a1c034563a892954.jpg

Kon-El/Conner Kent aka Superbly, the half-human and half-Kryptonian clone of Superman and Lex Luther.

Now there have been a few individuals that have taken the mantle of Superboy over the years like Superman himself when he was a teenage, Conner, and recently Superman's son, Jonathan Samuel Kent.  I have to say that outside of Superman himself, Conner is my favorite Superboy.  Don't get me wrong, I love Jonathan Samuel Kent, he is a great character as far as I am concerned.  Conner for years has been one of my favorite clone characters and is among my favorites in the Superman universe.  I like the fact that he spent years battling his Lex Luthor side to try to become more like his "brother" Superman.   That complexity and conflict in his character made him very unique and interesting to me.

Now, I'm sure most of you guys are familiar with Conner through the ever so awesome Young Justice animated series.  I am happy to say that while the show has done a great job in developing and portraying his character, I didn't like the fact that they kind of limited his power set.  In the comics, Superboy is extremely powerful.  Not as powerful as Superman, but still a heavy hitter nonetheless.  I mean, he was able to go toe to toe with Superboy-Prime during the Infinite Crisis event.  Superboy has all of Superman's powers plus Tactile Telekinesis. Tactile Telekinesis enables Superboy to mimic super strength, invulnerability, flight, energy blasts, and disassemble objects.  I don't know about you guys but having that ability along with possessing Superman's powers sounds pretty awesome.

I would love to see this character appear in the DCEU sometime in the future.

Anyways, I hope you guys enjoyed this segment.  I'll see you guys later.  PEACE!!!

Hello Ladies and Gentlemen,

Happy Black History Month.  That's right, February is a month where we celebrate black history.  So throughout the month, I'll be showing you guys some of my favorite black heroes of all time.

Today I'll be talking about:

711735770_BlueMarvel.jpg.3d117e905ff7baae592b0603ba6182ad.jpg

Adam Bernard Brashear aka the Blue Marvel.  This is a character has earned my interest, love, respect, and admiration over the past several years.  He made his first appearance in Adam: Legend of the Blue Marvel Vol. 1 #1 in November of 2008.  He was created by Kevin Grevioux.  Over the past decade, he has become a fan favorite among Marvel Comics fans.  I didn't even though this character existed until I checked out his series a few years ago and I have to say it is pretty damn good.  Prior to becoming the Blue Marvel, Adam was Magna Crum Laude and a superstar fullback at the University of Cornell, a 2 Silver Star member of the U.S. Marine Corps during the Korean War, and he was a lead scientist on a project to harness anti-matter energy though a "Negative Reactor" to bridge the Negative Zone and the positive matter universes.  He became the Blue Marvel when the reactor exploded, subjecting him with mutagenic radiation turning him into a stable anti-matter reactor.  Blue Marvel would then go on to become the most popular superhero of the 1960s.  However, when the public discovered that he was an African-American while battling his arch-foe, Anti-Man, massive controversy ensued.  In 1962, JFK presented Adam with the Presidential Medal of Freedom and asked him to retire due to the fact that America at that time was too racist to accept a black "superman.". Enraged, Adam flew to the outer space and threw the medal at the moon, nearly cracking it in half.  He would then encounter Uatu the Watcher. Their conversation would be interrupted by a large invasion fleet called the Infinaut.  Adam would go on to defeat the entire fleet single handedly.  He then retires, gets married to a beautiful white blonde woman which turned to be a spy sent by JFK to keep a close eye on Adam, starts a family, and becomes a college physics professor at the University of Maryland.  He returns to action as a full time superhero to aid the Mighty Avengers in defeating his arch foe, Anti-Man.

As for as powers and abilities go, he is one of the most powerful superheroes in all of fiction.  He possesses incalculable levels of superhuman strength comparable to that of Thor, Hulk, and Sentry, invulnerability, healing, superhuman speed, agility, reflexes, flight, longevity, enhanced mental perception, energy manipulation, energy projection, energy generation, molecular manipulation, and light generation.  Outside of his awesome super powers, he is a highly trained combatant, a trained athlete, and possesses a super-genius level intellect.

Personally, this is a character that needs to appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.  Who should play him you may ask?  Simple, Denzel Washington.  IMO, Mr. Washington would be perfect for this role.

Hope you guys enjoyed this segment.  PEACE!!!

Hello Ladies and Gentlemen,

To continue our Black History Month celebration on this thread, I am going to talk about another one of my favorite black heroes.

Today I am going to talk about:

Icon.thumb.jpg.df0f93eb27d9fee7dba34aeec2a93849.jpg

Argus/Augustus Freeman IV aka Icon.  This character in a lot of ways is Dwayne McDuffie's version of Superman.  Like Static Shock, this character was a part of the Dakotaverse, a comic book universe that is a part of Milestone comics,  company where a lot of black writers and artists got together to bring more minority characters into the comic media.  In 2008, the DC Universe and Dakotaverse merged into one universe.  If my memory serves me correctly, only Superman and Icon know that the two universes were once separate. 

Earlier, I mentioned that Icon is Dwayne McDuffie's version of Superman, well that is because his backstory has some similarities like the fact that he is an alien from an planet whose ship lands on earth, gets discovered and raised by a human.  However, there is one critical difference, Icon grew during the times of slavery, therefore he experienced some tension throughout his life.  I personally find that aspect of his character very interesting and intriguing to me.

As for powers and abilities go, he is arguably just as powerful as Superman.  How you may ask?  Icon and Superman went toe-to-toe at least twice in the comics and both of their fights ended in a stalemate.  As a matter of fact, there was an instance where Icon, with a single punch, sent Superman flying out the Watchtower and 50 feet into space.  Afterwards, Superman goes on to state that nobody has ever hit him that hard before, not even Darkseid himself.  I don't know about you guys, but that's pretty damn impressive if I don't say so myself.  While most of powers are comparable if not on par with Supes, he can also manipulate positron energy.  Positrons are a form of energy that counteracts electrons.  Icon can use positron energy to create, manipulate, and project energy blasts, energy enhanced punches, energy pulses, force fields, positron fields, and energy constructs.  Other than being extremely powerful, he is also a self-made billionaire, an accomplished lawyer, a highly experienced and trained combatant, and is multilingual.

I was first introduced to this character through the Young Justice animated series, which I have to say, while the show is great and all, he needs more spotlight.

I hope you guys enjoyed this segment.  PEACE!!!

Hello folks,

Continuing our Black History Month celebration on this thread, the next black hero I will talk about is:

674740475_LukeCage.thumb.png.f2da80a71723d6fc42b09b1b755e8bff.png

Carl Lucas aka Luke Cage, the original Power Man of the Marvel Comics Universe.  One of the most beloved, enduring, and icon black superheroes of all time.  TBH, I didn't know this character existed until I first played the first Ultimate Alliance game back around late '07 to early 2008.  I have to say that Luke Cage has a very interesting and compelling backstory.  Luke's power set is also pretty cool, which features incredible superhuman strength, stamina, nigh-unbreakable skin, and a moderate healing factor.  Personally, I liked the fact that he joined Captain America's side during Marvel's first Civil War event back in '06 because I agree with the fact that the U.S. government was overstepping its' boundaries during that time.  I absolutely love his relationships with his wife Jessica Jones and with his best friend and fellow Hero for Hire, Daniel Rand aka Iron Fist.

If you want to know my thoughts on Michael Copter's portrayal of the character in the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe), IMO he has done a great job as Luke Cage.  I absolutely enjoyed Season 1.  Still have to see Season 2 though. 

Anyways, I hope you enjoyed this segment.  PEACE!!!

Hello True Believers and newcomers alike,

Continuing our black history month celebration, the next black hero I will talk about is:

717699764_Spider-Man(MilesMorales).thumb.jpg.31457180527827d8656b767d5b1a5a91.jpg

Miles Morales aka Ultimate Spider-Man II.  For the past several plus years, this character has been one of the most beloved characters of the Spider-Man mythos.  I personally like this character a lot because he possesses a lot of similarities to the original Spider-Man, Peter Benjamin Parker, other just his powers and abilities of course.  I say that his character (personality) is a lot like Peter's and TBH, I like that.  Also to be quite frank, I like Miles more than Ultimate Peter Parker.  While most of his powers are the same as Peter's, he also has abilities that Peter doesn't have such as: Energy-Thread generation, Bio-Electrokinesis, Venom Blast, Spider-Camouflage, and allegedly Immortality due to the Oz serum.

I was so happy that Miles made in his cinematic début in the awesome Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse animated film.  I thought that Shameik Moore did a great job voicing Miles through out the film.  Can't wait for the sequel.

Anyways, I hope you guys enjoyed this segment.  PEACE!!!

Hello folks,

Continuing our Black History Month celebration on this thread, the next black hero I will talk about is:

1798734354_BlackPanther.thumb.jpg.415d26a1bde09fe23126be6dca3c3b0e.jpg

T'Challa aka the Black Panther, the first black superhero ever created.  That's right, for those who don't know, Black Panther was the first black superhero ever created.  He was created by two of the greatest legends and icons in comic book history, Stan Lee & Jack Kirby.  He first appeared in Fantastic Four Vol. 1 #52 in July of 1966.  In an interview, Jack Kirby stated that he created the character for his black friends.  That right there shows you how great those men were as individuals. 

IMO, Black Panther isn't just one of the greatest black superheroes of all time, he's one of the greatest superheroes of all time in general as well as one of the most influential of all time.  I've been a huge fan of Black Panther ever since I read the comics and watched the cartoons including the 2010 animated series, Avengers Earth's Mightiest Heroes.  I find his character, universe/lore, origin and backstory to be very interesting and compelling.  I also like the fact that Black Panther represents good leadership and loyalty.  Black Panther is also among the Marvel Universe's best fighters and tacticians as well as one of their smartest superheroes.  He's also the richest superhero of all time with a net worth of 90.7 trillion dollars.  I know, that's insane.

As for his portrayal in the MCU, I'm extremely happy.  When I saw that he was going to be in Captain America: Civil War, I literally went crazy and said, "He is going to kick some serious suit in the movie.". Then when I saw that he was going to be portrayed by Chadwick Boseman, the man who played Jackie Robinson in the movie, 42, I was like, "Okay Marvel, I'm liking this.". Then, when I heard that he was getting his own movies, I was like, "Hell yeah baby.". I absolutely loved the Black Panther movie.  The acting, story, CGI, visuals, special effects, and action were incredible IMO.  Can't wait for the sequel.

I hope you guys enjoyed this segment.  PEACE!!!
