Still have one Marvel review to go, however, it is just a book adaptation in comic, so really let me wrap up the well known sort of "Stan Lee-an" sort of Marvel comics and movies and cartoons reviews here. Still got one Spider-man: Shattered Dimensions coming up soon, however I wanted to finish off with a list of my favorite Marvel characters: all of them! Hope you enjoy it!
I don’t know much about Mystique to be honest, but it is exactly that mystery that keeps me interested in her. There are two things that fascinate me about her though. First is her loyalty to Magneto. Second is the storyline according to which she is the mother of Nightcrawler. In this story we find out that the father of the child was Azazel, a red skinned mutant with a pointy tale and the ability to teleport. Because he was considered to be the devil himself, he is a touchy subject, however he was brought to life in X-Men: First Class (click here to read my review!). At the end of which movie Mystique and Azazel both joined Magneto’s team. I don’t think that the writers will be smart enough to encorporate this story to the sequel, but I sure would like it a lot!
9) Captain America
Everybody loves him… that is probably why he is so low on my list. I loved him in the Ultimates series and I loved him in the movie cartoons (click here to read my review!). He is a fantastic character and not for his strenght or his shield, but for his charisma. However he has lately turned into this even more iconic character thanks to the live action movies (click here to read my review!) that I am embarassed to admit that I like him. People just give me that dumb look like "Yeah, of course you like him.”. So I just keep the cute Steve Rogers all to myself now.
This crazy character was introduced to me in a little cartoon by the title of Hulk vs. Wolverine (click here to read my review!). I had fallen in love with him at first sight. He is an idiot. A smart and a funny one. He is also incredibly strong. Originally he is known as Wade Wilson from Canada, he was offered hope in the form of Department K, a special weapons development branch of the Canadian government. Wilson became a test subject in Department K’s branch of the joint U.S./Canadian superhuman enhancement project, the Weapon X Program; his cancer was temporarily arrested via the implantation of a healing factor derived from another Department K agent, the mutant adventurer Wolverine. He is a wonderful character, a bad guy, but don’t you wish that sometimes the bad guys were fun? Instead of you know, incredibly annoying…
I loved him ever since I saw the Sam Raimi movies, which made me start reading the Ultimate Spider-Man comics and now I loved him in the new version. It’s just a great character whom you get to grow with and care for more than you’d think. I love his love stories; his relationship with Aunt May; the way he has learned to cope with his losses and how he fights evil until his last breath. He is the kind of guardian angel you want looking after you.
Originally my favorite character from the Ultimate X-Men comics, Bobby Drake has the ability to turn everything to ice, including himself. He is a young but incredibly passionate kid with a heart of gold. He was portrayed by Shawn Ashmore in the X-Men live action movies (click here to read my review!) and gotta say he worked with the character very well. Even though in the comics he is a very cheerful person who makes you smile, in the movie they approached him differently, which was all fine, but if I must choose, I’d go with the comic version! Looking forward to seeing some more of him!
Peter has this introverted and shy personality. He is also an artist. In a storyline his mind was wiped and he didn't remember any of the X-Men: he just painted. After his return to the team, he and Shadowcat get together but they can't seem to make it work. He has one the biggest hearts in the whole X-Men team. He is sort of a big brother you want to confide in and let him make you hot cocoa in the middle of the night. I hope he gets a storyline in one of the new live action movies, I really hope so!
I do admit that I change my favorites often, however one constant has always been Colossus. If the new Thor: The Dark World movie comes out, I'll probably change my mind again, same with Iron Man 3 or Captain America: Winter Soldier. As a matter of fact The Amazing Spiderman (click here to read my review!) just reminded me that I love Spidey too. So, yeah, hard choice but Colossus is always up there!
That's gotta do it. Not sure when I'll get the chance to write my next review, I'm going away for a while and I am also currently working on my book, not to mention that there are only three weeks till my third semester at university starts, so I really gotta take care of a couple of things sooner or later. Make sure to check out my previous reviews, that's gotta do it for Marvel's best and brightest, coming soon with Dark Horse and DC!
