Your Fav is problematic.
Alright, so I just saw this post on facebook. Actually, I saw it way earlier today, but I went back on facebook and was reminded of the post. So like the post about batman. It featured certain things from the various batman comics. It was called WTF Moments in Batman or something like that. Well, lemme tell u they were really WTF for someone unfamiliar with comics, or really DC. Eh, both. So like the different themes that came up were cruel dark “jokes” or actions, and sexual shit. So like in one batman kills someone, well starves them to death technically, and like, I could see batman doing that. But what really freaked me out was that batman got batgirl, who I think is Gordon’s daughter, pregnant and like breaks it to her boyfriend that batgirl is knocked up with the caped crusaders baby. Like what? I guess I could match that with the billionaire Bruce Wayne, but still, it feels like a stretch with my perspective or view of the superhero. Another thing, which seems a little more like the dark fucked up superhero if we ever thought of him in the sexual way, but not something we’d think would be canon. Like how Batman set these bad guys on fire then beat the shit out of them, before and after the fire, and then on the same like surface area, in full sight of the men burning to death, batman fucks the canary. I just, I just, was slightly turned on and appalled at the same time.
Superheroes have always been something, pure in my mind. Like, they remind me of the innocence of childhood. You know, when shit was simple. Like when there were very clear lines between good guys and bad guys, even if the villains had a semi-realistic background, but like they were still larger than life. (Sorry I’m saying like a lot I, like, get in these moods where I either say certain words a lot or I, like, talk in accents, and since I can’t talk in an accent on Tumblr cause I’m writing (or really like I don’t want to think about writing out an accent)) Anyways, where was I? Oh, yeah villains are still larger than life. But at the same time, so are the heroes. And yes they have their human aspects but they are strong in ways that we wish we could be, resilient, and they have super powers. They are just, damn near perfect in our minds but realistic enough so that we can relate. And that is why I love superheroes. And that is why I am slightly offended by these snippets in the comics. And I guess the reason for that is that like I am not super familiar with each superhero even if they are my favorite. I just, I don’t read comics. Or even look up specific shit on the internet about them. So like my opinion and my feelings about this don’t really mean much. So like, take this as you will.
