I'm going to springboard off Tuesday's Give Me Fire or Give Me Death and keep discussing superheroes. I love superheroes, but really, who doesn't? They're awesome. They get to do the things we always wanted to do but never could. Most of them have crazy powers and risk their lives for the greater good.
There are the classic superheroes, like Spiderman, Batman, Superman. Everyone has heard those names and recognizes the significance behind them. When I was growing up, we lived in a large farmhouse (where I still am) with much of my extended family. One of those people was my uncle. I still remember a poster he had on his wall. It was from the old Superman show, depicting a baby Superman lifting a truck. (Took a bit, but I actually found the picture)
Mighty Mouse is indelibly etched in my brain as the most awesomest superhero ever. I would come home from school and plop myself in front of the television for half an hour of the best flying mouse the world has ever seen. He may well have been my first animation crush (but that's another blog post).
What is the first memory you have of superheroes? Who is your favorite? Do you have a least favorite?
