Dylan here! Sorry for our weekend hiatus! Busy weekend, we probably won’t post on most weekends and will do a bulk of our posts during the week. Give ya something to look forward to.
As you can see we are transition to DC on our top 3 lists. If there is anything that you all would like us to write about, or give our insight on then feel free to leave a comment! Ok, back to Chels, you’ll hear more from me in a minute!
Well, we are at it again. Ranking our favorite Male DC Heroes. You should just know now that we are pretty partial to Marvel, so this was a little harder for us. And we typed this previously but right before posting it, it was all erased… so if you catch some bitterness in our typing…
Chelsea here, kicking off my list with…
#3 nun a nun a nun a nuna blah blah blah… BATMAN! I’ll make this short and sweet, I am only picking this millionaire because I love his back story and his villains and everyone else surrounding Gotham City. Really, the only reason I am picking any of the guys I am about to pick are because of their backstory. Batman is a pansy if you ask me, he just pays people to make his weaponry and takes all the credit to himself. He has no real powers or talents. His wealth wasn’t even earned himself, it was passed down to him. Now before you jump down my throat and say he was trained in martial arts by those cult type people, I would commend him for that if he actually used it. BUT he doesn’t. Instead he throws Batarangs at the bad guys and then throws them in jail instead of taking care of them the right way. I will say that he does have a soft heart for orphaned children, like himself, that I appreciate.
#2 with that being said, I bring in my number two pick. The Boy Wonder himself! Robin! The original one that is, because if you know anything about Robin you know that there has been over five different people, male and female, assume the role of Robin. Again I’m a sucker for his backstory as well as his ending. Dick Grayson’s acrobatic family travels in a circus, where his parents are tragically killed by a gangster for no apparent reason. Bruce investigates the case and discovers the orphaned child, ultimately gaining custody of him and training him to be Robin. He then fights along side of the Gotham vigilante until he heads off to college, where he then proclaims a name for himself as Nightwing.
#1 I bet you can guess what comes next, Nightwing. I know that is kind of cheating because it’s the same person, but I’m going to classify him separately because he passes down his role as Robin to Jason Todd. While Nightwing or Robin don’t have any real powers of their own, they do both have incredibly stealth acrobatic moves that set them apart from the competition, as well as their mentor. I just love Nightwings story because he overcame his fate and stepped out of Batman’s shadows to become his own hero. Now that deserves a movie, don’t you think?
Let’s see who Dylan comes up with now! Let me guess… Flash, Batman andddd… Aquaman? Hahaha totally kidding on that last one!
Isn’t she just so loving? Ok guys, I’m about to shock the world here again. I’m not gonna be totally cliché, nor am I gonna center my post around all things Batman *cough cough*^^^^^ Growing up I wasn’t as entranced with the DC universe as my friends, thus my knowledge and passion for Marvel. While I know enough about the characters the void of DC in my childhood was filled by Cartoon Network. (Yes, Cartoon Network) Don’t laugh because these guys are pretty cool in their own right, but these three underrated, and oft underappreciated individuals and groups hold a special place in my heart.
#3 Static. “WHO?!?!?!??!?!??!!???????!!!!!!!!!!!!?!?!” Static. You know! Static shock, Virgil Hawkins? No? Well that’s what I’m here for. Virgil Hawkins a simple kid with a knack for being at the wrong place at the wrong time. His town of Dakota, riddled with gang activity, was in the middle of a gang war. Virgil was trying to stop his friend when a reaction happened causing a mutagenic gas explosion giving Virg, and all the gang bangers powers. Seeing that his peers had many negative ideas for how to test their new abilities, Virgil became Static to stop all of the “bang babies”. Using his powers to harness and fashion electricity he surfs through the sky on a sewage manhole cover, projects electric jolts, moves objects and people with his bare hands! He isn’t your typical Superman, but his good will and unique super powers snuck into a special place in my heart.
#2 Batman…….Beyond. Batman Beyond as in Terry McGinnis. Where Virgil was a good boy just trying to make things right, Terry was an angry teenager bent on ending the crime in Gotham that took his own fathers life. Le me set the mood here. 2019 Bruce Wayne is has a new suit, and has severed his ties with all of his former allies and foes. He now is just your everyday vigilante when he answers a damsel in distress call. During this he suffers a small heart attack and says to himself “Never again.” and decides to hang it up. 2039 17 year old Terry stumbles upon the batcave and sleek bat suit after learning of his fathers death at the hands of Jokerz. Under the mentoring of Wayne, with his sleek suit, his futuristic gadgets and motorcycle he starts to slowly dwindle the crime of Gotham. Along the way he makes new foes of his own (Blight, Shriek, Stalker, Jokerz, etc.) and encounters some old “friends” of Wayne (Bane, Mr. Freeze, Scarecrow, and of course The Joker) Terry is a Bad A, which makes Batman Beyond all the more awesome.
While they don’t have the manpower, resources, or even experience of the JL. That makes them even more underrated these are TEENS! Led by Robin, who knows a thing or two about this super hero thing, the TT’s have a very diverse group. Cyborg, Beast boy, Raven, Starfire, Thunder and Lightning, Hotspot, Aqualad, Mas Y Menos, etc, etc, etc the list goes on! Couple that with the revamped Deathstroke as Slade, Robin gone rogue as the AWESOME Red-X, and the cult type villainhood that is The Hive and The Teen Titans just continue to impress. Teen Titans go, right to #1,
