The Super Heroes In The Mirror And In Your Bed

It’s funny…I’ve always loved this song, but for some reason as much as it made me think of love and romance (yes, this is my song for my Valentine’s Day countdown today), it also makes me think of super heroes.

I’ve got a little secret…I’m a bit of a tomboy. My hubby will tell you that I only pull my girl card out when it’s convenient for me. This means that as a girl, my favorite cartoons were Thundercats, He-Man, and GI Joe. When I got older I got hooked on X-Men & WildC.A.T.S. I’ve always loved stories with lots of action, preferably with enhanced powers…maybe even super powers.

When TV shows like Mutant X, Dark Angel, Birds Of Prey and Lois & Clark came on the screen, they had a guaranteed fan in me. As a little girl, I used to pretend to be Wonder Woman. Once these new shows came on I loved the powers of the women in the first 3 shows. In Mutant X, I loved Shalimar Fox. She was a mutant, enhanced with feline/cat-like instincts. Come to think of it, Max from Dark Angel and Helena Kyle had feral natures, too. Shoot, Helena was Catwoman & Batman’s daughter…it stood to reason. Yes, with all the super powers out there…I feel the need to be a bit on the animal magnetism side…grace and balance and power. I thought other powers were interesting, but if I could have picked…that would be my super power. What about you guys?

Of course no super heroine should be doomed to a life alone…so I fantasized about the type of Superhero a girl like me should have. I’ve had little mini-crushes on all sorts of superheroes over the years, but there are 3 that really speak to me.

Instead of showing off his strength and amazing abs…I’m going to showcase his other side…which I find equally sexy. Apparently, so did Lois! Who could blame her?

Of course I’m a woman, so the next one is not really a surprise. So far he’s been droolworthy in every movie I’ve seen him in…but still, it’s the first role that captured my imagination the best. He’s just dead sexy and a pretty badass superhero!

My all time favorite male superhero has been a favorite since his cartoon days. There was something intensely sexy about his southern charm & playful wit…and when they finally put him in one of the movies I cheered. It was about time! Of course he’s also one of the most loved comic book heroes… Do you know who it is yet?  It’s the Ragin’ Cajun, himself…Mr Remy LeBeau! Yeah, I’d love for him to shuffle my deck…and then some. ;-D

I keep hoping they’ll finally give his character his own movie… So far, no luck. I keep hoping! So now you know about me…what kind of super hero I’d love to be. What about you? And if you could be with any superhero, who are your dream guys/girls? More importantly, why? (By the way, my superhero men were listed in order…3-2-1)

    1. Thor (you’re right…what’s not to love?) 2. Iron Man (Love the attitude). 3. Uh….um….if I gave it enough thought I could probably come up with one but if I have to think that hard I guess it means there’s no third.

    BTW, I still love Thundercats (the new one)

      I always found Scarlett to be a victim of her own machinations (sp?). LOL! As for Ashley…I think that although he was a bit of a milquetoast, she loved him for his idealism & his ability to love her for the best parts of herself. If you remember in the book, he wasn’t blind to her flaws…it was there in his gentle rebukes. He just wasn’t quite the firm hand someone of her personality would need.

        Very true, but I loved her strength and style. I loved that she didn’t let the turkeys drag her down. I loved that she knew what she wanted and went after it without tiptoeing around with all the Southern niceties. And I can’t tell you how often I was able to get over the worst kinds of hurt by telling myself that I could worry about it tomorrow. Scarlett rocks!

      You are most welcome. Gambit is by far my most favorite superhero. He didn’t quite have the same angsty vibe associated with most of them and he took life and people as they were, flaws & all. There is something very sexy about that. In the comic and cartoon, Rogue steals his heart. I loved the way he’d rumble with that French/southern Cajun drawl & call her “Cher”. Yum! Enjoy your research!

    I don’t think you needed this disclaimer on the bottom. The order was pretty obvious. Ha ha. I grew up with a brother only a year older than me. So we played He-Man and She-ra all the time, we even had the He-Man and Skelator Castle. What I would give to see that thing again.
