Embrace Your Inner Superhero
Superhero movies are all the rage nowadays. And as a lifelong fan of comic books, seeing my favorite characters on the big screen is a huge thrill.
I find it amusing the looks I get (especially from Lucky Larry) when I talk about comics, sci-fi shows I love (Agents of Shield and Supergirl, two of my favorites right now) or my beloved Transformers.
Yes, I'm Townsquare Media's local geek, and proud of it.
Outside of Transformers, Batman has always been a favorite of mine, followed by Superman, Captain America, Iron Man and Wolverine.
I've lost my various comic books over the years but thanks to the app Comixology, I've been able to revisit those classics in the digital age and keep up with the latest stories.
Now, I will say, that everyone at some point has daydreamed at least once about what super powers they would want if they were a superhero.
I've thought about many a time and came up with what I would want. I would like the super strength of Superman, the smarts of Batman and the wisdom of Optimus Prime. I'd like to hear what powers you would want in the survey below.
This year, BTW, is an exciting year for super hero movies. Deadpool released last week (extraordinary movie, DO NOT TAKE YOUR KIDS though, rated R, a very hard R), Batman v Superman:Dawn of Justice next month, Captain America:Civil War and X-Men: Apocalypse in May, Suicide Squad in August and Doctor Strange in November. And, of course, Transformers 5 has begun the early stages of development for release next year.
Now, if only I could talk the boss into a trip to Comic Con this year, you know, for work and stuff.
