In memory of Indy

I just thought Indigo’s an under-rated character, and wanted to get something about her out on the interwebs.

Clickage on pictures for bigger :)

***

Indigo‘s an android from the future that killed Lilith and Troia (before Donna got revived, of course). After she was shut down, she was reactivated. No longer “evil”, she became a member of the Outsiders, much to Nightwing’s dismay.

Meet cute lil Indy

Her character’s really naive, and everything about Earth seems foreign to her. Imagine Starfire from cartoon version of Teen Titans.

Indy’s also romantically involved with Shift, who’s a clone of Metamorpho.

But in the Teen Titans/Outsiders crossover, her evil-side reemerges, meaning she started attacking the members.
… And everything ends tragically.

Now meet evil lil Indy

And this is how it ends.

If you’re confused about how Shift killed her, he turned what she was inside into flesh. But he couldn’t make it alive, therefore it killed her.

All I can say is I was REALLY sad.
She wasn’t my favourite character or anything, but I just didn’t expect it to happen. I know I know… Why didn’t I doubt if she’s really “reformed” or not, I don’t know. Plus, this scene between Shift and Indigo makes it even more emotional. You can’t help but feel for that big guy :(

And, oh my god, Nightwing!…

To cope with the death of a team mate, he has sex with Starfire… while thinking about Shift. I don’t know how that works… but yeah. Sheesh.

This way to Nightwing Goodness

The day started ugly.

And I know that none of you will give a damn.

I had a big pimple between my eyes. I squeezed it. It started to bleed. It hurt.
Something was wrong with my mascara brush. I couldn’t find my black eyeshadow. I applied my blush un-evenly.

I still know you don’t give a damn.

I couldn’t choose which bottom to wear. Jeans or mini-skirt? I went with the mini.
Which bag to take with me, a handbag or a rabbit rucksack? I went with the handbag.
I couldn’t remember where I placed my hairbrush, my mirror, gums?, my chap-stick and my wallet.

I bet you’re waiting for my Nightwing goodness.

I left home. And I went back to change my bag and shoes. I swapped my bag for the rabbit rucksack. I swapped my shoes for a big-toed ankle covering sneakers, it made my feet look big. Wow, that’s a mouthful.
But big feet’s cool. That means you can take up more place of the street… which is cool, i guess.

I decided to turn myself into Wolverine.

SO!
I order 5 TPB today, yay!
I ordered the the first three volume of Runaways (digest version coz im cheap). The MUCH anticipated Runaways! Fuck, I’m so excited already!
I just have to wait for 2 weeks… grrr.
I also ordered The Flash: Secret of Barry Allen, for good ol’ Flash goodness! and Outsiders/Teen Titans: Insiders, which I was skeptical about purchasing *shifty eyes*, but i did…

So, where’s the Nightwing goodness you’re looking for?
Lets starts it now,

I was seriously planning on waiting for the Titans TPB, because I didn’t want to purchase the monthly issue. Mostly because of the pressure of ‘having to buy it every month’ . Yes, I could get a Pull-list, but my income’s unstable, meaning that i strictly rely on monthly pocket money which I tend to plurge impulsivly. So when I grow up, my dream is to have a Pull-list!

MOVING ON!
I couldn’t WAIT any longer! I bought issue #1! Now I have to go look for #2-#4, great. It exceeded my expectation.

IT WAS AMAZING! NO KIDDING!

I have new found respect for Judd Winick. Nightwing was not a Virgin Mary toast! He was actually really cool and awesome, and it wasn’t because of his looks!

And did I mention the art?
After I post this I’m gonna go find out who did it! I think I found my favourite artist!

If you don’t know what Titans is, all former member of the Teen Titans (Dick, Wally, Roy etc.’s generation) gets back together. And does whatever superheroes do.

Heeey, where’s Roy’s hand?
(clockwise: Nightwing, Beast Boy, Raven, Starfire, Donna Troy, Cyborg, Flash)
hmmmm~

But OMG, this conversation between Roy (Red Arrow) and his daughter, Lian, is too cute!
eeeep! x]

Who would’ve thought! Mr. Skootch was the one responsible of putting waffles into the DVD player!
ahaha!

and naked Starfire tempting Animalman’s son… or not.

and where would I be without the Wally goodness.
I swear this issue has tons of nudity.

Guess who interrupted this amazingly interesting talk about mixing carbs and mayo? (No sarcasm intended)
The evil red goo. Curses!

and oh my…
Ho Ho Ho, I swear this issue was made for me!

*pssst* Wally! I don’t like putting carbs and mayo together either, i think that’s a decent excuse to get married. :)~

Dude, it really made me wonder why I didn’t bother buying the Titans when it first came out!
I really like Flash (Wally), Red Arrow and Nightwing. And they all happened to be in the Titans!
Schoopid schoopid Mao!

***

While I was at the comic book store, I also purchased The Brave and the Bold: Nightwing and Hawkman (plus Deadman).
I know I’m a week late, but… I don’t care!

They were great!
Nightwing was superb! Worth a million bucks!

Today started shitty, but I ran into TWO Nightwing goodness in one day!
WOHOO!

*

Then, they made him look like a douchebag…
No, the enemy didn’t push him off the side. He ran… jumped and hoped to make it to the other side… but sadly, didn’t…

Psssh! Nightwing, a douche?!
He ain’t, brotha!

So the story in a nutshell is… Nightwing lies to the Justice League, JSA, Outsiders and Teen Titans, so Hawkman, Deadman and himself can fight a big ugly dragon who has Green Arrow captive.
It sounds lame, but it’s actually real cool :)

Mmm~, douchebags~

Why DC can Grill Steak Marvel’s ass

Posted in All Blogs, Cartoon, Comics, DC Comic, Gambit and Rogue, Legion of Superheroes, Marvel, Movies, Runaways, The Flash with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 30, 2008 by Mao

Welcome to my new blog entry, in which I show my extreme biased opinion towards the never ending battle between DC Comics and Marvel :) … and I am clearly a DC supporter. *waves DC flag*

I’ll keep this blog short and sweet, while I make my Mac ‘n Cheese.

My pasta’s spiral :)

So why DC can stir-fry Marvel?
DC Comics clearly have a much better movie lineup coming up, compared to Marvel! and The Dark Knight clearly out-did Spiderman 3.

DC’s lineup…

The Spirit (2008)

Watchmen (2009)

Wonder Woman (2009) – animated, straight to DVD

Superman: Man of Steel (2009)

Teen Titans: The Judas Contract (rawr!) – animated, straight to DVD

Jonah Hex (2010)

The Flash (2010)

Justice League: Mortal (2011)

Y: The Last Man (idk?)

Most of them are still in the pre-production stage. So hopefully, all of them makes it to the big screens/DVD *crosses finger*

Watchmen is the next on the lineup (after the Frank Miller-fied Spirit). and I just watched the latest film trailer. Is it awesome, or is it AWESOME? It looks plain amazing and epic! Nothing like The Fantastic Four or Hulk! In the past few years/months, we were bombarded with average Marvel movies. Now it’s DC’s turn to hit the silver screens with waaay brill movies.

… and are they seriously making another Superman movie?
No offense to the big man, but he’s kinda… boring. And his only real enemy are Kryptonites… OMG, unless they’re planning on using Dark Seid as the villain! :O Then that would be so cool!

Ok, Teen Titans: The Judas Contract. I can’t express how frustrated I am with this. I heard about the pre-production of this movie more than a year ago. Few months ago, I checked back to how it was doing. Then they decided to put it ‘on hold’ because they aren’t sure if there are enough fans to support it.
*grumble grumble*
This straight to DVD film was scheduled to be released before Wonder Woman, but now it’s pushed back. Plus, Kid Flash and Jericho aren’t even gonna be in it … WHYYYY, KID FLAAAAAAASH, WHHHHHY?!?!?!!! I still do have high hopes for this DVD, since it does have an amazing storyline.
If anyone from DC Comics is reading this, I will bloody purchase the DVD! Release it now! … please? :)

Fuck, pasta!
… over cooked my pasta! Now it’s all soft and squiggy. :( Oh well, at least it’s still edible.

Jonah Hex. Are you shitting me?
Unless someone on IMDB is joking around, why are they making this film. I don’t think his fan-base is big enough. *shrugs*

The Flash!!!
FYb kjd ngbl kndykb;mu, need I say more? :DDDDDDDDDDDD
Fuckin’ hell! They better release it by 2010, and not push it back! I vote for Ryan Reynolds as The Flash, Wally West, the man!
nyahahhahaha!

Justice League: Mortal sounds bloody brilliant! I’ll deffinatley need another blog post for this, but this thing is gonna be huge! I’m telling ya now! But Adam Brody as The Flash (rumoured), oh pah-lease! If it really is him, I’m gonna hate the fangirls that’s gonna come along with him. And ima be crossing my fingers in hopes of Flash being Wally… and not Barry.

***

Ok, now lets checkout Marvel’s upcoming movies.

Marvel’s lineup…

Wolverine

Punisher 2 – War Zone

Ant-Man

Captain America

Nick Fury (what, again? Remake or wrong info?)

Thor

The Avengers

Runaways

I can’t be butt fucked to find the dates.

Wolverine is getting his own spin-off, and rumor says that Gambit‘s gonna be in it! … and that’s about the only pros I can think of.

Punisher‘s pretty cool, so props to him :)

Ant-Man and Thor, Laughing My Fucking Ass OFF!!!
AHHAHAHHAHA< LOLOOLOLOLOL. LMFAAOOOAOAOAOOO.
’nuff said.

LOL!

What does Ant-Man look like? An ant! Why is it okay for Batman to dress like a bat, and not for Ant-man? Because bats are cooler than ants! and what can Ant-Man to dress like an ant? hmmm… Oh yeah! Shrink into a size of an ant! How useful can that power be?!




… touche

and Please don’t tell me you weren’t expecting The Avengers as soon as you saw Ironman’s film poster.

Runaways… I think it’s gonna be farking amazaing :) Cast me me me!!! I wanna be Nico!

Now, compare Marvels’ lineup with DCs’…
Marvel, you just got served!

***

I just found out that Legion of Superheroes are gonna come out in Smallville. I don’t know why, but I don’t think Legion of Superheores are cool. I think they’re… un-cool? >.< I didn’t enjoy the cartoon version either. Season 2 was better than the first, thanks to the heroes ‘growing up’, and making it bearable to watch. It was a pleasure to watch the Lightening Dude (Live wire?) and Superman-X.
We’ll see how the Legion does in Smallville.

Ugh, so much for keeping it short and sweet.

And I just noticed that it’s been approximately a week since I made my WordPress account.
So yay! :)

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.

Now, lets talk about My Favourite Comics.

Posted in All Blogs, Cartoon, Comics, DC Comic, Favourites, Justice League/Unlimited, Teen Titans, The Flash with tags , , , , , , , , on July 27, 2008 by Mao

I started WordPress 3 days ago. I already have 5 blog entries.

But not once have I talked about my favourite Superhero… yet

I will, now.

THE FLASH!

Most under-rated Superhero ever!

Who is he?
The Flash, duh. The Fastest Man Alive. The Scarlet Speedster. MY FAVOURITE SUPERHERO!

Which Flash is my favourite? WALLY WEST OFCOURSE!
I get so hyped everytime I talk about him.
x]

You might think he looks camp in red fullbody spandex, but the man filling the suit is so lovable! I love the family aspect of him! All the speedsters are somehow connected (by blood or not), and he mentors his own kids to become great superheros! He’s one of the most relatable character in the DCU too, as he was a normal kid, and got his power by pure luck & his power is to run REALLY fast (tap into the SpeedForce!).

I can do what Flash does, he just does it better!

… dat ass!
(God, i love Google)


The Flash’s comics are the only single-superhero comic I read, along with Bart’s run as the Flash and Impulse (Impulse… one-word: LOL!) . The rest of my TPBs are basically team superhero comics.
What can I say, i love Flash!

Hmmm… lets talk about him in cartoons. I do enjoy his cocky, arrogant and flirty persona in the Justice League/Unlimited cartoon series. His one-liners are fuckin’ hilarious! Eventhough that’s more down Elongatedman’s department in the comics, DCAU’s Flash is equally as awesome :) ohoh, and Kid Flash in Teen Titans (cartoon series), thought by many fans to be Wally West too, has such a cute boyish-flirty speedster!
And The Flash in The Batman cartoon series? I only watched one episode with him in it. I heard he’s supposed to be Barry Allen? … and The Flash not being voiced by Michael Rosenbaum was slightly awkward :p

If you love The Flash and haven’t watched JLU nor Teen Titans, watch…
Justice League Unlimited – Flash and the Substance
Teen Titans – Lightspeed

… I guarantee you, that you’ll love it!

and just to make it clear… I do love Batman, Nightwing, Arsenal, Superboy, Gambit etc. But the level of my support and fandom for The Flash will always be a notch higher than them.

If you got a few minutes to spare, checkout these videos: “Flash Moments in Under 10 Minutes”

This blog continues onto Part 2!

Aw Yeah TITANS!

Posted in All Blogs, Batgirl, Comics, DC Comic, Nightwing, Tiny Titans with tags , , , , , , , on July 24, 2008 by Mao

To my suprise, I found Tiny Titans at the comic book store!
I wasn’t actually looking for it, but instead Teen Titans and Outsider’s Graduation Day. Too bad they didn’t have any left, but DUDE I found Tiny Titans!!!

It is beyond cuteness!!!AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH~ x333!!! <3333 nyahahahahaha!!!!!!!!!!!!
k, i’m done.
I actually didn’t expect them to sell Tiny Titans because a) Superhero comics aren’t popular here b) The demographics, or atleast the usual customers at the store, are all middle aged working men… Nothing wrong with middle aged men reading Tiny Titans,… but… oh, never mind.

So I randomly grabbed issue #5, “Meet tiny titans east!”
<3!

And even though I HATE Inertia, this lil’ convo between him and Kid Flash is too adorable!



*yay for not showing little Inertia using needles!*

And oh gosh, Nightwing is SOOOOOOO cute! I scanned the folowing…


Poor Dicky’s getting made fun of :'(
But look at lil Gizmo!!! <333 And Mammoth is that BIG stupid kid in your class.
ahahaha! and his lunch box, adorkableness!

:3~

Nightwing cuteness was much needed, after a frustrating read of the new Batgirl series. If you didn’t know, Caasandra Cain (a.k.a. Batgirl), was raised to be an assassin blah blah blah and she wasn’t taught how to read/write/speak but instead to read people’s body language. That’s pretty hardcore. BUT suddenly she can read, and it was all summarised in one little square box, which i quote…

“By day, she took speech and ESL courses, suppliment by expert tutoring arranged by Alfred”

:/
That was the cool thing about her… but anyway further on,
Nightwing’s a total jerk-face!!! He’s basically a bitch to Cass, and accused her of murder because she was outside alone. His root of bitchiness came from previous issues when Batgirl was once drugged by Slade and was like his partner in crime.
Thankfully she was saved, and Batman ran two drug tests, which the results said she’s clean from the drugs. So she was back in buisness with the Bat family and everyone trusted her again… except for Dick Grayson…
Batman got over it.
Robin got over it.
Nightwing didn’t.
Like oh my god Nightwing! Cry me a river, build a bridge and get the fuck over it! He’s even worse than my mom! And the stoopider thing is that the same thing happened to the Ravager, who is Slade’s daughter. But he forgave her and got over that. like wtf.

I blame Beechen! rawr!
Everyone just fucks over with Nightwing. Including Judd Winick (the writer of Outsiders), his Nightwing is boooooring. And Barbara too, but he also fucked her over so its fair game.

But I’m sure *fingers crossed* that the next issue will be better :]

I actually picked up the Batgirl series in hopes of seeing Batgirl and Nightwing fighting side-by-side against David Cain and Slade! That would be total kick ass!!!
I can already imagine it!

… man, this entry was full of words like “cute” “adorable” and “<3″…

OhOhOh, CHECKIT!
Li’l Big Barda!
Sh-WEET!
Look at her Boom tube, omg, just look at it x]
Ahahahahaha!
Tiny Titans Issue #6
