Dylan is up first to pick his top three all time favorite Marvel Comic characters. Let’s see how incredible cliché he can be!
My name is Dylan, my opinion is superior to yours. So without further adieu my top three Heroes- or teams- of the most dominant comic and cinema brand, Marvel.
I know what you’re thinking, no really I do. “Nightcrawler?!?! Are you kidding me?!?!?!?!?!” No I’m not, allow me to explain.First of all Kurt Wagner (His secret identity) is a mutant by definition, but what makes him so interesting is he is the spawn of two other mutants! His father demonic warlord Azazel and more familiar to the casual, Mystique. Moving on from his bloodline this guy adopts the blue skin of his mother, and the demonic depiction of his father. His power, which he got from his father, is what makes him so unique. Nightcrawler has the ability to teleport. Wherever. Whenever. Poof. Deuces. He’s gone. Sabretooth attacks? Poof, right behind him now. Magneto’s lair about to blow? Poof, your are at safety by the time it explodes. This unique power alone is enough to put the Blue guy in my top 3.
This is kind of a different pick from most favorites as well, but he is easier to support than Nightcrawler. Wade Wilson, his real name, is an esteemed marksman, and also a highly trained swordsman. What seperates “The Merc of Mouth” from any other ordinary assassin or mercenary is his ability to heal, much like Wolverine. But what’s so fun about Deadpool is his sanity, or lack thereof. Deadpool knows he is in a comic, knows he is in a video game, and if they ever made a movie he would know that he was in it too. Many of his peers think he is crazy, assuming he is just talking to himself, but obviously Deadpool is ahead of the game and claims a the number 2 spot on my top 3.
#1 Spiderman, Spiderman, does whatever a spider can!
That’s right! No metal suits, no mutation, no super soilder serum, no gamma ray generation, no Norse mythology! Just a good ole smarty pants getting bitten by a radioactive (I feel it in my bones!) spider. This gives Peter Parker the ability to climb walls, and to spin, shoot, and sling webs just like his arachnid predecessor. Not only that but he has crazy reflexes thanks to his Spidey Sense, and is super fast, strong, and agile. While I can argue Spidey has it the roughest when it comes to shear volume in villains (Green Goblin, Venom, Cranage, Sinister Six, etc….) that’s not why I admire him the most. Pete sits there and takes it on the chin, over and over again as his peers talk about his alter ego being nothing but a law breaking vigilante. Whats worse? He has to take pictures of him “law breaking” to make an honest living! HIs witty sarcasm, and sticky situations (Beyonder, Madame Webb, etc…) round out why he is simply the best.
That’s that, don’t bother reading Chelsea’s because I win. And we already have your click… Just kidding folks.
Until next time, I bid you farewell.
Okay well despite my husband’s need to put me down, I’m going to continue with my top three male Marvel Comic heroes… Just a quick disclaimer here, we are going to do a list of our favorite Marvel villains and female characters later on, so don’t think our lists are completely dumb.
#3 is going to have to go to the one and only Iron Man.
Now, let me explain myself before you become completely disinterested. Tony Stark is a genius and a brilliantly sarcastic one at that. His blunt approach at just about everything is what makes me love him the most. Before the Iron Man movie, I honestly couldn’t have given two craps about him but after Robert Downey Jr.’s depiction of him, I was sold along side of America. The fact that he’s rolling in dough due to his extensive knowledge in weaponry, passed down from his father, makes him have all types of insight into upgrading his suit. So there ya go, that’s about all I have to say about the delectable Tony Stark.
#2 is going to go to Gambit.
You’ll see a trend here, I like the guys who are complete jack holes to people… Something about their “I couldn’t careless” attitude makes them desirable to me. I always root for them because I feel they deserve it, as apposed to someone like Nightcrawler, who just wants pity and attention. (Yes, that was a blow at my husband.) So anyways, Remy LeBeau and his ability to control potential and kinetic energy has me captivated. Most often we see Gambit with a deck of cards, which to his enemies seems puny. Therefore giving Gambit the advantage because he is underestimated, when he demonstrates his powers and that card goes flying through their wind pipe, we see where the true strength lies.
#1 is kind of cliché, so after I gave Dylan a hard time I ended up putting Wolverine as my number one.
Please don’t chastise me! He’s one of the most well known Marvel heroes and I typically wouldn’t acknowledge him as being superior but I mean he’s too bad not too. Let’s face it, he’s the ultimate hero. Aside from the whole part where he lost his memory and has no idea who he is, blah blah blah… He has adamantium running through his body, his claws are virtually indestructible, unless cut with adamantium itself. He’s immortal because he self heals. But then again the adamantium is his biggest downfall because Magneto has the edge over him there. My real love for him comes from his attitude, again with the guys who don’t give a crap about anything. He comes off as hard and careless but deep down all he really longs for is to remember who he was before and how he got to where he is now.
Well, there ya have it folks. Our top three Male Marvel Characters. I hope we didn’t entirely offend anyone by leaving out your favorite. Maybe we even opened up some insight on some new characters you may not have been interested in. Let us know what you think and who your favorite’s are.
See ya, BYE. :)
