Fact: I am a DC, not a Marvel.

I feel like I should come clean with all of you. I love DC comics. Not as much as Archie comics, but I love them almost as much. Marvel just seems to hoaky for me sometimes. Sure, the characters are more than just right playboys or boy scouts who can only succumb to Doomsday or a green meteorite, but I just can’t get into them. The movies on the other hand are a thrill to watch. Iron Man 1 and 2 are some of the most enjoyable comic book movies to watch! DC doesn’t have a good track record with comic book movies, yet Marvel has, for the most part, made pretty enjoyable films.

But the comics? I just don’t like them. I don’t care about the characters. Maybe it was because I didn’t grow up reading Marvel. I spent much of my youth reading Batman, Wonder Woman, and any other Batman related titles. Yet Captain America, which my dad loves, I could never get into. I tried reading the Spider-Man comics after the movies came out, but Spider-Man was too angsty for me. Heck I even gave Fantastic Four a shot. But all of these characters just put me too sleep.

Oh well, better luck next time.
