So despite my assertions that I was going to try to get into american comics this year I really haven’t made much progress. I still have whatever minimal xmen knowledge I started with this semester. Despite this I’m going to have to play the poser card and get excited about Avengers.
I watched Ironman the first time from a low quality street-side vendor in Belgrade, hoping it was in English and really wasn’t all that thrilled. It just didn’t keep my interest. I watched captain America hoping that the movie could make me respect him a little bit more as far as Heroes go, but alas, no. Then The Hulk, he just was never interesting to me. I always just preferred Mr. Hyde when I needed that fix. Black widow I honestly don’t know much about but from what I’ve hear she doesn’t sound like my kind of hero either. Not to mention I wanted the Scarlet witch instead. So I’m running out of heroes to make the movie worth my time but then comes along a large blonde chunk of eye candy that goes by the name of Thor. Not only that but I kinda enjoyed his movie, despite its obvious failings. So this being the case I decided to be excited for Avengers. Slowly slowly my excitement is escalated by a dear friend of mine who keeps hyping it up and writing scenarios for them all.
Now my only problem: how to get off campus during exam week to have a marathon leading up to Avengers.
While I mull over this problem you can enjoy this little strip I “lol”ed at
and then it of course leads into this.
