Christmas All Year

I love Christmas but I don't wish it lasted all year (asterisk). I think what makes Christmas so special is the fact that the season only lasts a short while, but when it's happening, it's the greatest time of the year. If the season lasted all year, we'd be numb to it. It wouldn't be … Continue reading Christmas All Year

Is This A Joke? (Avengers: Not the Endgame At All)

Are we still pretending these MCU movies are any good? Seriously? At this point, I can’t tell them apart. Some villain wants something, two or three of the heroes get together to stop him, and there are LOTS of jokes along the way. Nobody dies (or stays dead), nobody cares about whatever shenanigans happened previously, … Continue reading Is This A Joke? (Avengers: Not the Endgame At All)

Not Opposites – Batman and the Joker

It seems obvious that a hero needs his greatest enemy to be his opposite equal. Someone who can match the hero in every way, but their goals, methods, and even personalities are as close to opposite as possible. But, this is not the case with Batman and the Joker.

Voldemort (Harry Potter)      I'm surprised I ultimately chose to include Voldemort on this list at all, but I have my reasons. He's basically Adolf Hitler of the magical … Continue reading The 6 Greatest Villains In All Fiction, and Why

The Joker’s Backstory (My Theory)

Joker is easily my favorite fictional character, of any franchise, of all time. Since DC has never 'officially' released any backstory for the Joker, I've come up with my own theory. DC seems to allow others to create their own origin story (such as The Killing Joke, and Tim Burton's 1989 movie Batman), but since no official … Continue reading The Joker’s Backstory (My Theory)

My Thoughts on Batman

There couldn’t be a greater superhero franchise than Batman. It’s not just because he’s cool. It goes much, much deeper than that. I’ll list some reasons, saving the best for last. The most human superhero with the most human supervillains. Batman doesn’t have any superpowers, and same goes with most of his villains. The characters … Continue reading My Thoughts on Batman
