So I feel like if you only like something mainstream in it’s mainstream form of media, you’re not really a true fan of it. Like, if you only like the superhero movies and you don’t bother to read the comics, you’re just following the trend. This isn’t to say that if you see the new Spider-man movie and you didn’t read the comics until after it that you’re not a true fan. To me, it doesn’t matter HOW you got into loving something, as long as you actually love it and care to know more about it.
A lot of people love the Hunger Games and Harry Potter, and I imagine a large portion of the fans saw at least the first movie before touching one of the books, but if it wasn’t for the movie, they might not have ever heard of it or realized they loved it enough to read it.
I feel the same way about superheroes. I love (most of) the movies, and I think it’s great that they spread awareness of this amazing universe that has existed for over 80 years now (depending on when you think it really “starts). I will admit, though. It does annoy me just a little when I hear people talking about how much they love Loki when all they’ve seen of him is in the movies and that a good chunk of those people (not necessarily you) only like him because of his actor’s good looks. His character’s good, honestly. I don’t personally like him that much, but I can’t tell you how many times I’ve tried to talk to people who are huge Loki fans about why they like him (so I can try to like him more, too) and they’re just like, “Tom Hiddleston. OH and he’s the god of like mischief and he has magic powers and doesn’t age and stuff.”
I’m not saying you can’t like him, but I just wish that people would at least have a reason to love the character.
The longest I’ve ever gone to any school was two and a half years. I feel like I missed out on the experience of having a friend I’ve known for most of my life, and I’m not sure how to feel about that. :/
So, honest question. Girls don’t want to be pressured into doing something they don’t want to, but they also want to be fought for. These are generally in the same direction (more or less), but where is the line?
I don’t get fashion. Like, jeans (sometimes cargo shorts if it’s hot) and t-shirts are all I ever wear. I remember one time I found a black button up shirt in my closet and I unbuttoned it and wore it with a black shirt and I was like “Oh yea, I’m stylin’!” but I couldn’t tell if people thought it looked better, so I stopped.
Everyone is ignorant of something, and I am no exception.
Everyone is wrong about something, and I am no exception.
Everyone has felt enough pain, and my enemies are no exceptions.
Everyone wants to be happy, and my enemies are no exceptions.
I just watched a documentary on Netflix called “Superheroes”.
I recommend that you check it out. It’s not just about crime fighting, but also helping people and being a good-willed Samaritan to those who need it. It’s remarkable how many different backgrounds they come from, and how much that it reflects the growing diversity of our comic book heroes.
