Huge comic book nerd, but never Huge comic book hero guy, I started reading Creepy, Erie, and Vamprilla, and yes the standards.. but never considers any of the hero's really wort the time. Still am .. but i still dont read much Hero stuff... Walking Dead, Y the last Man, Most Of giamens stuff.. Preacher (older) etc.. I like the anti hero.. but not DC or Marvels.. slighlty rougher then G rated anti heros.. but..
Captian America (movie) is about as close as you can get to putting the original CA on a screen.. I thought it was just like watching an OLD (pre 70's) CA comic book.. Talk about the hulk movies.. the HULK was never the character he new movies showed untill the late 80's and 90's when the Superhero Angst wave swept comics.. Even Iron Man, the Modern to cool for school version is new.. the Old Iron man was much more Bruce Wayne then fun time playboy man. Now I'm not saying thats bad.. it isnt.. Iron Man (first movie) might be about the best Superhero movie ever (so far). The sad thing is most comic book movies are never goign to get into the grit of the comics.. that wouldnt be good for the non comci book reader movie go'er..
I loved Watchmen, and cant understand why so many comic book people cant stand it.. it was great.. I even liked the "new" ending.. they should have did more with the man turned god, why whould he care about us thing.. but overall ... now some people just dont get that movei and the characters where spose ot be cheezy over tht top... read a 40's or 50's comic.. its not like today even in the slightest.. V for Vendetta was also great.. but was so stripped down (he went after many more people in the comic then just the 2-3 in teh movie).. again it captured the feel I felt..
I grew up on the lesser know hero's.. Conan was my favorite.. (he is known well enough) but then.. kazar, Warlord, Elflord, Dreadstar, and a ton of British stuff ( they really started the "cool" comics of today... ) Axel Pressbutton!!!! if you watched the bad bad Stallon judge dread movei ( dont get me wrong judge dread is a characture of a comic.. ) the ABC warrior ( robot) is a cool comci book series that doesnt realte to Dread at all (really) but is very cool.. Rouge Trooper (bad video game) was great. An old english mag called Warrior published tons of great stuff for years.. most was award winning ( watchment, V for vendetta, etc.. all appeared in it)..
Super heros are fun.. but they are the lesser of the comics IMHO.. fun no doubt.. but there is so much better..
if you are not opposed to some very graphic, strange stuff I would hit up a torent site and Grab PREACHER.. its almost been made into a move a few times.. teh studios just cant quite grasp it cant be done so you can talek kids to it ( after all its a COMIC, only kids read comics!). If you enoy the Wlaking Dead TV show.. GRAB THE COMIC!!!! dont worry they wont ruin each other.. so far they only use the same ideas.. not the same story.
personaly I think i have liked all the super hero moveis some.. yes F4 was the worst.. but they where OK.. Ghost rider.. lets facec it.. bad comic, bad movie..
