A year ago, our english teacher asked us to write about a superhero and after one hour of talking about Spider Man, Super Man and Bat Man i decide to write about an underated character i consider a hero. On the english book it was the picture of Buffy, the vampire slayer next to the ones you already know, but no one talked about her, untill i got the project. I didn't want to write about a character that everyone know, i wanted to take an iconic one but not-for-everyone-kind. I wrote the essay and that subject doesn't really matter anymore so, today i want to talk to you about that superheroes i refused to write about in that time and some new ones like Spider Gwen.
As i said in some other posts, i grow up with Spider Man, but there was a time on the start of 00's when Cartoon Network Romania was running a cartoon with The Flesh, Wonder Woman, Bat Man, Aqua Man, Super Man and more, and because Justice League will be out this year i'll be glad to watch it just to see if it's like that cartoon. I never really liked DC superheroes but i have to say that i like Batman ( The Lego Movie ) and Superman from Smallville, but that's all.
Getting back to the subject, the very first comic ( that was not for kids like W.I.T.C.H or WINX ) i read was iZombie, when there were just a few episodes running on CW and i was a little surprised to see how many changes were made for the tvseries. I loved iZombie right from the start, but when i get to season 2 i just start to get bored and tired when i was watching it and i decide i've seen enough. I didn't finished the comic book either, but just because i didn't liked the story that much, even if it was pretty interesting because Gwen was a gravedigger and also a zombie and if i think again maybe i will read it one day because are some parts where the tvseries are just like the comic version. Too bad there is no Major or Raj but i can easily get used with all of this new characters. For some reason, this comic book is exactly the way i imagined The Southern Vampire Mysteries when i read the first book.
iZombie was the first one and the second was a comic about how Doc met Marty in Back to the Future, and how they become friends and it just happened to find that comic and i read it, i wasn't dissapointed because it was really nice to find out a backstory that you won't see in the movies. Also, i'm reading TheOdd1sOut comics, but i want to get more focused on the ones with Superheroes because i want to see the difference between the movies and the comics, but also because are more classic and i'd like to read one from 1930, for example.
When i was little i didn't really like to read stuff and the only things i was reading were that issues made for children such as My Little Pony, Barbie, Hello Kitty, W.I.T.C.H. , Winx and if i remember well i still have some issues from Monster High. But the last one was after 2010 when i start to read magazines for teenagers as well.
Now i'm reading Civil War II and i'm looking for the first issue of Spider Gwen because i found the second one and i don't want to read that before i actually know what's going on in the first one. After that i'm not really sure what i'm going to read but i'm thinking about Guardians of the Galaxy, Iron Man, Miles Morales: Ultimate Spider-Man and maybe Deadpool but untill then, maybe my reading list will get bigger so we'll see.
