Well, I like Black-RX, Ryuki, Kabuto, W, OOO, Fourze and the new rider Wizard.

You know about Kamen-Rider Faiz?

He was the first rider I was ever introduced to. I would not get into the series later until Kamen Rider Decade, where I would be introduced to a variety of riders due to his rider motif. Faiz would be the first rider series I would finish, followed by OOO and Fourze, in which Gentaro Kisaragi reminded me of Josuke Higashikata from JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Part 4.

My favorite superhero is the Rapeman. I have never read or watched anything with him in it, but just the knowledge that such a franchise exists, catapults him to number 1 easily.

Image

Seriously though, if I had to choose, Silver Surfer I guess.

Most of my favorite fictional heroic protagonists don't really qualify as superheroes.

And the ones I loved as a kid, like Batman and Spider-Man, I kinda still like, but got a bit bored with, too many reboots, different versions in each media, characters appearing in issues written by bad writers etc. etc. Reading/watching the origin story for the n'th time can get boring. For me anyway. I realize for millions of people seeing different takes on a familiar character they love, is all part of the charm, but 20 different versions and a new version every 2-3 years, is overkill for me.

Part of why I love Batman TAS is that it feels so definite and timeless. Like people could watch it in 2092 with no prior knowledge of the characters and it'll still be as entertaining, I suspect. Like a Marx Brothers movie.

What "we"? Have you and I become comic artists and co-writers of TW and no one notified me? Or am I part of some collective with you? Cause I swear, I thought the last State Agricultural Farm got liquidated in 1991, but maybe all this time I was part of one together with you and didn't know!? Or do you address yourself with the royal "we" and at the same time are "the man behind the man" and the true creator of TW?

Why should a comic have a plot in order for it to say that it has ended? That doesn't make any sense.

Look mac, my last attempt at explaining this to you in a serious manner. TW was a gag comic of entirely self-contained one-shots, no real recurring characters, no storyline, all I'm saying is that a "the end" would look weird on the last one-shot, when the only thing tying the one-shots together into a single project was the title. And that's even if it had been clear that it'd be last strip when it was being made, which I already explained wasn't the case, I can get disagreeing, but not it "making no sense".

To me, it sounds as if you're saying that the TW comic hasn't ended contrary to what you're saying.

Yes mate, in the same sentence, I've managed to say a thing contrary to the one I was saying. I'm a master of verbal paradox.

One-shots. Self-contained. Last strip.Wasn't planned to be last originally. Comic over anyway.

Professor. Lava. Hot.


And I realize that my reply is unproportionally huge and mean-spirited, and of course, I have objectively better ways to waste my time, but within three replies you've managed to remind me why I haven't been missing message boards over the last few months.

If you were a newbie I would never do this, but you've been here over 2 years.

Imagine being me: *Boy, writing that paper sure was tiring, time to relax, oh yeah I've been visiting Snafu more often over the last few days, time to viasit my favorite nostalgic section* *Rosso's reply* *facepalm through face*

I just decided to squeeze some entertainment out of this reply.

I was introduced to Kamen-Rider from Saban's Masked-Rider (the spin-off of Power-Rangers) would you beleave. That show used footage from Black-RX and two Kamen-Rider movies, ZO & J, badly I might add. Even back then when I did know much about Kamen-Rider, I could still tell that the suits were different.

God, that was a horrible adaption of Kamen Rider Black RX. Saban should even be lucky that the first Rider-Ranger crossover in history kept that series alive in the first place. Let me know If it wasn't.

Speaking of crossovers, have you seen the Kamen-Rider Decade/Shinkenger crossover two-parters?

But we are, these are Japanese Super Heroes we're talking about. I'll you that the Japanese Spider-Man which resulted into Super Sentai having giant robot battles. If any of you didn't know that, yes, Spider-Man was responsible for all of that, and If it weren't for him, Power Rangers wouldn't have had a Mega Zord in the first place.

I've seen the Decade-Shinkenger crossover also, that was so terrific.

Also, one thing I would like to note about American and Japanese Super Heroes is that they're different because of it being based on how people from America and Japan define "God." Joker-Undead's preference regarding favorite super heroes is quite different for this reason also, so I thought it would be a good idea to help him out while staying on topic. I have some of this information here explained by Crispin Freeman if anyone's interested starting at 13:24: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vfd0TY7lEKc

I'm just saying that we have different ways of seeing super heroes. I'm just trying to help out someone here who doesn't really have a preference towards the super heroes most of us are quite used to.

You're discussing Kamen Rider and that's not the point of the thread.

Kamen-Rider is a superhero series that I like very much. Like Rosso Rose says, people can like diffierent superheroes, and the Kamen-Riders are heroes I personally like. I hope that clears some things up for you.

That god thing's new to me, but I see where your coming form. A little side note here, I also like heroes like Kikaider, The Super-Sentai series (the original version of Power-Rnagers) the Metal-Heroes series and GARO.

Also I thought had a pretty good Idea to let the Sentai & Rider have crossovers.

We might as well get back on topic for now. Sorry if I wasted anyone's time. I might as well let other people have a say about superheroes.

Speaking of which. There is a comic-book hero I like, a manga superhero named Skull-Man, wh was created by Shotaro Ishinomori (the same guy who created the Kamen-Rider).
Image
The 1998 manga is a remake of the original manga. Skull Man revolves around Tatsuo Kagura, who early in his life was subjected to several mutating science experiments that ended up giving him amazing powers and skills. Longing revenge for the murder of his parents he becomes Skull Man, a shadowy crusader who battles The Syndicate and its evil leader Rasputin.

The story begins abruptly with a woman who possesses immense psychic powers killing a man, only to then be attacked herself by a man who can become a bat, a wolf or an alligator named Garo. Garo is revealed to be Skull Man’s childhood protector and present ally in the coming war against Rasputin and his hordes of evil mutants. Skull Man makes allies, loses comrades and dies in combat with a lethal mutant as in the first book. What follows is a trip into the world of shadows and the evil within all of us.
