The Crow was a movie that came out in the 90's, but the one with Brandon Lee was what got it popular because it was 'darker' compared to other comic-based movies at the time (aside from Spawn and Darkman, maybe a few others) but it was mainly that the actor was Bruce Lee's son, and that Brandon acutally died in a fight scene, when he was shot by real bullets when they were supposed to be shooting blanks in a scene.
People these days that go back and watch it say "Oh the graphics suck, the scenes are terrible," but considering it was made on a small budget, it came out in the 90's and the main actor died - it's amazing the show was even made at all, and still has a large group of fans compared to today's movies, where people just watch a movie and say "Yeah I remember this and this about it," and then the next show comes along and they forget all about the used-to-be favorite.
But so you know, there are male and female Crow characters in the comics, but only four main characters were men in the movies; the first one was with Brandon Lee, the second I think had a French guy, the third had some really weird underground thing going on, and the fourth is supposedly so awful that no one should ever watch it because it looks like a college kids' video.
I own all four of them, people complain that they all get worse and worse down the line, but I think that they're all important for their own reasons - different reasons on why they were brought back to life, different abilities, different settings, to further detail what it is that they could be capable of doing as a hero and as a normal person.
I do agree, Joker is cool in the Animated Series, though in the Beyond series, he was very old; Harley Quinn was a grandma to two young teenish girls (she was claimed to be dead, having fallen from a ledge to her death) and there was one episode when 'Joker' was alive - except it turned out to be 'Joker Junior' - Batman's old sidekick Robin was kidnapped as a boy and was experimented on to create the 'Joker Junior,' which as an older man of about 40, the former Robin didn't realize that it was his old alter ego causing the problems but he was eventually helped out.
And I know who's cute: Joker Junior! http://fc08.deviantart.net/fs71/f/2011/006/0/6/maybe_____joker_by_xmenoux-d36jjt0.jpg Could you deny that face some cookies? emotion_kirakira
But here was Terry from Batman Beyond: http://media-cache-ec0.pinimg.com/236x/4c/f9/71/4cf971619cf845abb72f6fc29fc29962.jpg
Also, that figurine is Hawkgirl, she's really awesome, and is seen in the first season (I think) of the Justice League.
She's one of my most favorite Justice characters because she gets treated like a girl, but proves she is as tough as any man, although she has a rather bad temper.
Yay that you got a picture of the wall art, I tried to get pictures of the school's art before they tore it down, but the film got ruined because of all the dirt and grime buildup in mom's purse. emotion_facepalm
Have you ever seen the cartoons Zeta Project and Static Shock? emotion_kirakira
I got a pile of manga magazines and lots of comic books.
The manga is mostly Shonen Jump, since I was subscribed to it years ago as a Christmas gift from my mom.
The other manga I have is Blade of the Immortal, which has a good deal of adult questionable content, but has amazing realistic artwork. http://t2.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcRty67VfM4D8KZv2AxaDMHRShNgkwuR13Do1XsXZ4AprEQpcqiHFA (A front cover's design)
It was also recently turned into a show, but I haven't seen it yet, so I can't say if it's any good or not.
Also I have a bunch of packs of randomly assorted magazines, all different kinds in a ten-pack that usually is sold at my work, so me and my manager snag them up quickly.
My special collection is The Crow comics (some black-and-white, some color.)
One of my female coworkers years ago (she ended up quitting) was like, "Oh awesome, can I take them home and read them?"
I just laughed and laughed again sarcastically, and then was like "No."
A different female coworker one time asked me if I could bring them in to work for her to see, and I said "No, I don't want them damaged, so they're staying home."
They're even more special to me because they're from my sister's fiance, who prized them so much that he never touched them with his fingers, used gloves and tweezers to keep them in perfect condition, so I feel it's very important that I not let them get one bit damaged.
I've also watched pretty much all superhero cartoons and movies (collecting them as well) though I might have missed one or two here and there, but I do plan on seeking them out no matter how crummy; it's a personal adventure quest.
Though if I had to pick a crush on a fictional character in cartoons, it'd probably have to be Terry in the Batman Beyond series.
If I had to pick realistic characters, there are just way too many to name. sweatdrop
Though I never owned any hero-based video games, I had been wanting to buy some, but I don't own any game consoles that are up-to-date.
Very cool that he had Batman painted on his wall - in my middle school, there were lots of drawings of DBZ characters in many parts like the lunch room and the locker area, but the one that really impressed me was the large Captain America painted near the cafeteria, and I was like "Who is that?" and some kid was like "That's Captain America," and then I became really interested in comics a lot more than I was.
When me and my sister were growing up, there was a comic store nearby that we always went to but it was replaced for a card shop; a few years later we ended up moving into an old house, and when my stepfather was busting down the walls, he found a secret stash of very old comics - original Mickey Mouse, original Donald Duck, all just a few cents each at the time, and I loved reading them, but unfortunately he sold them off for alcohol.
So then I forgot all about comics except for what was on TV, and then when I went to the school and saw Captain America, it reintroduced my love of comics.
As well, I feel a personal liking for them; the older characters (such as Captain America) were based on actual soldiers in the war, and my great-grandpa by marriage served in WWII, so I feel that it's kind of because people like him are a reason we have comics today.
I'd love to paint so many things on my walls, but I have all these posters and figures in packs, that I can't, and that we rent an apartment so it wouldn't be really allowed. sweatdrop
*draws Loki and Lex Luthor everywhere* emotion_awesome
Sucks you had to paint over the image though when you moved.
I always thought Catwoman and Batman were kind of work-related lovers, or frenemies over a personal issue, that they both agree to disagree with the justice system.
And yeah it was shocking that they had watched all the Batman movies and didn't even know Catwoman.
It's not like Catwoman walked out of a Superman booth, because Batman's comics seems to have element / plant / creature related villains. (Bane and Ivy, Penguin and Freeze, Catwoman and Scarecrow.
Also I probably wouldn't mind Poison Ivy too much, but if they did a good video about her, then I'd probably wait for it to come out and watch it.
But I'm a nerd for tons of comic characters, so I do also like Superman - and it has Lex Luthor in it (I prefer Smallville's version of him) emotion_awesome
