Sometimes I wonder if the people my age (the guys) who read comics are clueless or just horny…or a combination of the two.
Here’s the thing, I understand that superhero comics objective females, but so do many other forms of media out there. I choose to read superhero comics for 1) nostalgic reasons, and 2) because there are some stories that are actually well written. Gail Simone’s Wonder Woman stories are some of the most substantial stories about a strong female character without becoming too overbearing with the female pride. And Scott Snyder’s current Batman run is crushing anything being published in comics right now.
However, fans of superhero comics get caught up with the sexual tension that obviously happens in comics – just like with most stories – and allowing it to take center stage in their minds. The above image was posted on facebook a while ago. It’s amazing artwork and I love the artist who penciled and inked it, but instead of talking about how gorgeous this piece of art is, the main topic is of concern is all about Superman choosing between two women who are virtually naked.
When did “The Bachelor” become Superman?
Wonder Woman and Lois Lane are strong characters. Not just strong FEMALE characters, but simply strong characters in general, and dehumanizing them in the way the Facebook fans are doing isn’t doing the trifecta justice. Superman never thinks to himself “Let’s see, do I want to have sex with the black haired gorgeous women who just finished taking a shower, or the black haired gorgeous women in the underwear and a smile?”
It’s an embarrassing thing for comics when fans can’t get past the sex. What are your thoughts on this, dear reader…

Yeah, You really shouldn’t sell him short. He could kill you…and everyone else for that matter. DC Animation is still getting hit pretty hard for neglecting Aquaman for his exclusion in the Justice League: War film released a few weeks ago, and it’s a constant battle that Aquaman has to fight to prove legitimacy. Geoff Johns set Aquaman up for success, now it’s up to the Aquafans to continue the already established awesomeness that is Aquaman. Here, let me lay out a top ten list which shows Aquaman isn’t useless and could take over the world if he chose to…
I had never read the Guardians of the Galaxy comic book, but I knew as soon as I saw the trailer, it looked familiar. Little did I know that the comic book title more to do with my childhood than I previously thought. Thank you Shel Silverstein!
The Giving Grot
It makes almost TOO much sense. Which is why I love it…

Enjoy this little gem. I sure did….
This is epic! Way to go Mr. Fan for spending the time to make this! The Lego movie has definitely sparked a love for making LEGO fan films.
And just for kicks, let’s stick Will Arnett’s untitled “Self Portrait” from the LEGO Movie which describes how Batman’s not only a detective genius, but also a musical thespian! Will Arnett might have a career of voicing Lego Batman for any future LEGO movie installments.

Seems legit. Although Superman’s hands should be strong enough to take care of that irritating itch right? I guess Batman is a lot more useful than the haters want to believe huh?
