A Cup of Superhero: Impulse (Bart Allen)

ok. A Cup of Superhero is going to be like a series of filler posts, in which I compare a cup of drink to a superhero. My posts tends to be a bit long and messy, so I decided; one post, one cup, one hero.

Ooooh, sounds so Olympicy!

Hah, lol, k, so…

If superheroes were a drink, what would they be they be~?

Lets set the benchmark; Impulse (Bart) would be a tall glass of good ol’ Chocolate Milkshake!
With whip cream, and of course, a cherry on the top.

You get to your local diner, a very familiar place, and push open the door. You hear everyone greet you as you make your way to your stool. You simply smile and nod. You pull out your stool, and sit on it, not only for your ass to fit perfectly into the ass-groove you’ve made over the years. The waitress was already there to take your order, and you say “Ya know what ah’m gunna sey Jenneh, the usual!”.
She flirt-giggles and replies “Jus makin sho hun! Buhger, frahs and chocolate milkshake cumin’ up!”

See, everyone likes chocolate milkshake! Even Jack, the big truck driver.
Chocolate milkshake will always manage to bring a smile to your face. If it was a person, it would be one of those people who everyone likes hanging out with, because it’s fun! :) And that person would be Bartholomew “Bart” Allen, as Impulse!
But too much of chocolate milkshake can give you a toothache, in Impulse’s case, a headache. You know it’s uber fattening, but you just can’t resist it!

Chocolate is an essential food group in your life, and milkshake… god, it’s mother fucking milkshake! What I’m trying to say is, we need chocolate milkshake! As Young Justice needed Impulse to keep the series fun. <3

ahaha, cute kid.
His cuteness is the cherry on the top.

***

But as we get older, some people tends to prefer a less sugary Chocolate Milkshake, and instead prefers it a bit more creamy and darker. Don’t get me wrong, it’s still a bloody good chocolate milkshake!
That’s when we say bye-bye to Impulse, and hellooo Kid Flash!

It’s the same chocolate milkshake. But instead of using chocolate which is 70% sugar and 30% chocolate, we’re now talking about 40% sugar and 60% chocolate.
It’s still sweet; Kid Flash is still full of awesome. But we have a less chance of getting obese and becoming diabetic; Kid Flash is more ‘settled’ (… hah), less impulsive and more knowledgeable compared to Impulse.

Bart manages to become this new and improved milkshake after he reads the whole San Fransisco library in 20 minutes, which felt like 18 months to him.

Shouldn’t the bookshelf get empty as he reads those books? Just felt like pointing out…

***

… This is when your favourite chocolate milkshake gets really bitter and gross, when Bart takes on the mantle of The Flash.

I really like Bart, but he’s just blergh as Flash! He ain’t bitter like the counter-part, but plain boring. Nothing much to say… he lost his charm.

I also think he got a bit dumber.
,,, and excuse me for my less than average scanning skillz.

… I guess the San Fransisco library didn’t have a book on that.

But what I liked about his run as the Flash was the last two issues. Tragic ending, but I really liked it. As much as I didn’t want Bart to die, I didn’t mind Flash dying…

!!! But we all know he’s gonna revive soon! :) *crosses finger*

My Favourite Comics, Part 2!

Posted in All Blogs, Cartoon, Comics, DC Comic, Favourites, Nightwing, Outsiders, Teen Titans, Young Justice with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 27, 2008 by Mao

As mentioned in Part 1, I mostly enjoy reading Team Superhero Comics!
Just the idea of each indivisual with different superpower coming together and working together, is.just.plain.AWESOME! I do enjoy wrestling, especially tag-teams. It’s like… with a help of another person, they can do something completely new and extreme with their powers.

Gotta love ’em WonderPets!

So, my favourite teams…

Young Justice

Teenage Superheroes! Tons of bickering, hormones and humor! Good read if you’re up for laughs. They were the first Super-team TPB I bought (JLA: World WIthout Grownups), in which 3 completely different teenagers (Robin, Superboy and Impulse) comes together.

Robin (Tim) … being Batman’s protege, is the mature and level-headed of the bunch, and naturally becomes the leader.
Superboy (“Conner”) … thinks with his manhood, arrogant and a bit cocky. But he does mature by the time he’s a part of the Teen Titans.
Impulse (Bart) … boy oh boy. His name is self-explanatory: impulsive! Immature AND reckless. But he keeps the series humorous. :) He is a good kid!

*remembers great Impulse scenes from JLA: WWG*
*quickly scans*

Impulse owning young Joker
… and
… and

Nazi Dinosaurs from Venus. Greaaat~…

Although all 3 of thier personalities gratly differs, they come together and kicks some evil hiney! And their dynamics is what makes the short-lived series brilliant :)
Ofcourse, later on in the series they are joined by other super-teens…. Secret, Wondergirl, Arrowette, Empress and Slobo (who’s a kid version of Lobo xD).

Teen Titans –I bet you didn’t see the coming! *sarcasm*
So it’s basically 4 members from Young Justice, joining the 4 old members of the Teen Titans. And Impulse becomes Kid Flash during this series! Awesome costume change too <3 He becomes more intelligent after he reads the whole San Fransico library in under 20 minutes, and matures a lot. BUT! He’s still the most nicest guy in the team, sweet boy :)

Brownie point for you Bart!

Superboy, Kon-El, Connor Kent, starts Smallville High School and also gets a costume change.
He goes from wearing a sexified Superman costume + leather jacket + ear-ring…

To wearing a… well… plain black shirt with Supe’s logo

… his hair reminds me of Forest Gump

Wait, lemme grow some more hair on him…
It’s the small change that counts!

Ugh.
But I guess Superboy looks more like a “civilian” now (I hope that’s the image he was going for), and maybe a bit retarted.
Still love ya Connor!

Hah, look at what I just found!

Creepy… indeed…
… and something’s very wrong with Starfire’s head… Ohright , it’s just bent 45ยบ to her left.
Why couldn’t Cartoon Network/Kids WB just get some people to cosplay as them? and instead used cheap China labour to manufacture the Teen Titans suit? I guess we’ll never know.

Oh, and speaking of Starfire. SLUTTY!
Her suit barely covers her titties nor ass. Wait, it doesn’t even cover her ass, but only her butt-crack.
Gotta admit, neat picture…

De-railing here!
Gotta focus on how awesome Teen Titans are.

I just think I love them Teen Titans (Gotta buy the Titans TPB when it’s out! Wally, Dick and Troia in the same series again!)… AHHH, see what I keep doing here? I just keep getting distracted by stupid pop-ups in my head!

I just think I love them Teen Titans because I love(ed) Young Justice! Eventhough I didn’t growup reading weekly issues of Young Justice nor Teen Titans, I did come across Young Justice first. And I really grew into them. And few years later I decided to give Teen Titans a shot. It took me a while to pick the title up because of the image the cartoon version embedded in my head.
No offense… I do enjoy watching the cartoon series. But I wouldn’t pay to read the comic series (except for the issue in which Kid Flash races against Mas y Menos).
If you enjoy Teen Titans, checkout Tiny Titans!

(Superboy has to take care of Krypto, the Superdog.)

mhm, so…

Go Titans!

and finally…

Outsiders –

Unlike most super-teams, the team isn’t family based and more “work” based. This was so that they wouldn’t be emotionally involved with each other.
I think that’s pretty cool :D
They get paid to serve Justice!

I basically purchsed The Outsiders, for the sake of seeing Nightwing in-action and working in a team. But I didn’t get what I was expecting.
This is usually the part in which I tell you about how much more Nightwing proved to be and how awesome he is.
But I’m not gonna.
Because Nightwing was basically like a piece of toast.

He’s edgy, nicely toned, but just plain boring!

Maybe he’d be a Virgin Mary Toast. He’s nice to look at…

… He’s also a great leader (given the fact that his team could sometimes be full of naggy folks).

So I guess that would make him a great leader toast.

and watch ’em go COMMANDO!

.

But I got a plesant suprise from the other Outsider members! Grace (red haired girl) is a juggernaut! She’s unbelivably bitchy, but she’s hilarious and an awesome character! Another character which I didn’t expect to like was Shift, the clone of Metamorpho. He’s a “nice guy” and has this Ooomph-gene in him which just made me like him!

… And this is one of the coolest tag-team scenes I’ve ever seen!
Grace and Thunder! Grace has metahuman strength, and Thunder can change her body density.
They catch a jet, an effing jet! Thunder gets as dense as she can, and hangs onto Grace as she catches the jet (Grace is also able to heal really fast).

My awesome scanning skill hacked off the side…
Grace: “Good, we’re right on target”
Thunder: “This is so stupid! We’re just gonna die, Grace! Look at the size of the plane! It’ll just roadkill us all the way to the upper West side!”
Grace: “Shut up, just shut up your prissy sorority-girl cake hole, okay?!”
… and the rest, you can read for yourself :)

Outsiders is full of swear words, semi-nudity, extremeness… and i love it! It’s great to know that superheroes have sex life yanno?
How I know they do?
Well checkit!

In vol. 2 , they go at it again.
And the Peqod is the name of their jet.

The sad thing about this series is that the 1st and the 2nd volume of the TPB is great! But from there it slowly goes downhill. I haven’t collected all TPB of the Outsiders, I’m just not sure if it’s worth getting them anymore.

Maybe Nightwing, … maybe…

Runaways will probably make it onto this list in a few weeks time, when I can actually get my hands on them! I gotta wait till my next pocket-money day, and it takes up to 2 weeks for the orders to arrive! ARGH! I’m sure it’s gonna be a great read, unless all reviews that I’ve read were full of bullshit.
I’ll see how it goes.
