Day five! I particularly like today’s challenge –
Favorite superhero and why?
I like superheroes – it’s part of the reason why we’re having a vaguely comic-con themed wedding, after all. I like comics, I like movies, I like games and I like stories that feature superheroes – it’s a genre I find really interesting.
Having said that, my favourite superhero is actually one who tries his hardest not to be identified as a superhero…
Yep, it’s Deadpool, the Merc with the Mouth. He’s recently enjoyed a higher profile thanks to his new, not-safe-for-kids movie (which is hilarious, by the way) but he’s also a fantastic comic book character. Who doesn’t love a good fourth wall break?
Plus, for all his swearing, murdering, chimichangas and general badassery, he’s not all that bad…
… he lifts his mask so that Hawkeye can lipread, and signs for him (canonically, Hawkeye is deaf).
Plus, artistically, we’re pretty much on the same level.
So yeah. Deadpool for the win.
