I almost answered, but then I realized no one would ever respond to it. What good is imparting the wonder of Aqualad if no one cares?
Sun Jul 22, 2012 3:37 pm
tell me about aqualad, dexy.

Well, to be fair, I only like one Aqualad. The original, Garth.
Garth is the son of a King and a Queen, his father murdered while he was still in the womb. He was given birth to in Atlantis, where he was banished into the outlands for being considered inferior to those living in Atlantis. I can't remember why, I think it was his eyes. Anyway, after surviving for SEVERAL years out in the wilds of the ocean, Garth meets Aquaman, who is not related to him.
He had some pretty lame super powers, he could breathe underwater and talk to marine life. Which makes sense, he lives under the fucking ocean. As the series evolved he got turned into Tempest and he could like shoot eye lasers and shit, I think he could also... control the temperature of water?
I don't know, I just really liked his back story, and as I'm sure none of you remember I'm a devout fan of the Original 1960s Teen Titan series. Also: his name is Garth. He lives under the ocean, and they managed "Garth."

Shouldn't be surprising, but...
Coolest and most reasonable of the Justice Friends, great memetic potential, and he somewhat resembles me irl.

Can I see photographic evidence of this? I look nothing like Garth, I can show you that if you want.

Sorry, I compartmentalize my online identities, and this one doesn't get personal information like that. But I'm in pretty good shape, and when I arrived here I was clean shaven and had long hair that sun-bleached to something that might qualify as blond. Think a cross between Val Hallen's normal and depowered forms. The resemblance isn't more than passing, but I've had people tell me that I resembled a Norse god.

As common as it is, I gotta go with Wolverine
Mon Jul 23, 2012 10:29 am
But WHY wolverine?
Also: Valhallen, I completely understand. Sorry about that!
Mon Jul 23, 2012 11:13 am
Cuz wolverine is the best at what he does, snikt snikt bub.
Mon Jul 23, 2012 11:23 am
For me it would have to be the hulk.
Mon Jul 23, 2012 1:00 pm
Fine, let's do it your way.
My favorite is the scary god mother.

My favorite superhero is Joseph Joestar.
Joseph Joestar is the main protagonist of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, Part 2: Battle Tendency, a major character in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, Part 3: Stardust Crusaders and a minor character in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, Part 4: Diamond is Unbreakable. He is boof and charming and has a habit of reading ahead of the script when he's bored.
As a teenager in New York, he fought racism and abuse of power by horribly disfiguring police officers with the use of a bottle cap. A vampire tried to mess with him and ended up as wallpaper for the restaurant they fought in; when the vampire finally got his shit together, he threatened to hurt a woman if Joseph didn't bend over for him, but Joseph was like, "That ugly bitch doesn't service me, why would I give a fuck." The vampire was so moved by Joseph's manliness of objectification of women that he blew himself up. Without any walls to redecorate, the vampire died.
Thinking that vampires were kinda' faggy and said ugly bitch wasn't getting on her knees any time soon, Joseph rode his motorcycle to Mexico to humiliate Nazis. Unfortunately, by the time he got there, they had already been humiliated by a neo-vampire superhuman, so Joseph stomped his nuts in instead. He heard there were three neo-vampires that were even stronger in Italy, so he commandeered a plane to go kick their asses/fuck Italian broads (that's what Italians call them).
He meets up with a bunch of queers with expiration dates on their foreheads and decides to use them to test the strength of these new neo-vampires (is that redundant?) They fail hilariously so Joseph smashes one of their skulls with his balls. Afraid of fighting him without a proper battle strategy, they retreat like nancies and Joseph hangs out with his MILF until they show up again.
Joseph kills one. I can't even make a joke or proper paragraph about it, he just buttravages him.
Because of something not important, they have to drive to Switzerland where Joseph continues to embarrass the neo-vampires until eventually they get mad and kill his friend. Joseph storms into an army of vampires to recreate a game of Dynasty Warriors, but his MILF stops him and suggests they do something even more awesome: chariot race to the death. Because even badasses listen to their mama, he agrees. Also, one of the vampires got a boner just looking at him.
One of the remaining neo-vampires races Joseph in an all-out PPV chariot battle of doom and Joseph kills him with a fucking scarf. The vampires shit a brick and try to kill Joseph but the neo-vampire is so fucking moved by his awesomitude that he kills them and then dies, having been killed by the greatest being to ever exist.
Well, turns out the last neo-vampire actually is the greatest being to ever exist, so Joseph hops in a plane and flies his ass into a fucking volcano. The volcano erupts and Joseph humiliates him, the ultimate being of the world, so badly that he just lets himself get launched into space to suffer a fate worse than death: he could never be as manly as Joseph Joestar; also, he was frozen while immortal and floated in orbit until the end of the universe or some shit, but mostly the first part.
Joseph dove into the ocean and swam onto shore in Italy, and before telling everyone he was okay, he fucked some Italian slut. 50 years later, as an old man, he tapped a young piece of Japanese ass, as well. At 79, he fingered a baby.
And that's why Joseph Joestar is my favorite superhero/illegitimate father.

Is that the guy you posted fixing some dude's sock mal?
Mon Jul 23, 2012 5:07 pm
No, that's Yoshikage Kira, the main antagonist of Part 4. He's a serial killer. Yes, the writers of Death Note totally read that.

For reasons both nostalgic and personal, Spidey will forever be my favourite superhero and fictional character. I love every aspect of him and Peter Parker and the character development and the overarching theme of the comics. I love the villains and the side-characters. I love most of the story archs and reboots he's gone through. Excluding One More Day because holy fuck that was just terrible for everyone involved and I just pretend that it never happened.
And to top it off, my great-grandfather's name was Peter Parker.

My favorite superhero is el chapulín colorado.
The show's success was largely due to the fact that it embodied many aspects of Latin and Mexican culture, while making a critique on the unrealistic image of superheroes. From the name itself to the slang and proverbs, Chespirito made a great effort to reflect Latin culture. Many of his characters' names start with "Ch" (a separate letter in the Spanish alphabet) and several secondary characters with the Spanish letter "Ñ".
The show featured a permanent cast of actors, in a similar way to that of Monty Python. However, the only actor from El Chavo to have a recurring role in El Chapulín Colorado was writer and director Chespirito, as a different cast of characters was featured every episode. He was a superhero who dressed all in red, with yellow shorts and shoes, a red hood, and bore a yellow heart on his chest with CH inscribed in red (akin to Superman's "S"). He was conceived as the opposite of the image of traditional American superhero: a weak, ugly, fearful, poor, clumsy, coward, shorty, womanizing and foolish man, but in the end always overcame his fears to defeat his enemies.
The typical Chapulín episode had some person in trouble and would say, "Oh! And who can help me now?" followed by Chapulín bursting in through the nearest available opening or materializing inside a wardrobe, under the sheets of a bed or the like. He would be immediately recognized (regardless of the time or place—one episode took place in the Planet Venus, for example) causing him to boast, only to stumble and fall right away. For some reason, Chapulín is believed by people to be a great superhero, but they usually end up disappointed when they realize he is actually puny and timid. Despite this, Chapulin did try his best to help, and all his adventures ended well (though sometimes by sheer good luck or outside help.)
Seemingly parodying Superman's "Faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive" introduction, Chapulín was introduced as follows in the show's opening, reinforcing the idea of a barely powered hero:
Más ágil que una tortuga, más fuerte que un ratón, más noble que una lechuga, su escudo es un corazón... ¡Es el Chapulín Colorado!
(More agile than a turtle, stronger than a mouse, nobler than a lettuce, his shield is a heart... It's the Red Grasshopper!)
