There are many different comics and cartoons in the world. And they have all been fascinating us since they first saw daylight.
How many superheroes dont we know? And they all started their journeys through comics.
Ever since the original comics were born, there have been spinoffs. But why? Making money? Captivating the audience and keep them under a spell, hoping it wont wear off?
Spinoffs through comics, cartoons, and movies.
To those fans whove been enchanted since the beginning and still are supportive of their favourite comics, these new movies and cartoons might not be as much of a joy as theyd expected it to be. In fact, they're rather a disappointment sometimes.
And since the Japanese comics, cartoons and games first came to America and Europe, thereve been more sequels, prequels and spinoffs than ever before.
Annoyingly many, and mountains of merch

This ScarThis scar is all I have,This Scar5 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
It's all that you left me,
It's supposed to make me glad.
This scar encircles my heart,
And stitched along my brain,
But I don't know where it starts.
It's embedded in my feelings,
It's mingled with my tears,
This painful memory,
Compliments my own fears.
This scar came from longing,
From wanting you my dear.
You are the last stitch,
In a tapestry of pain.
A velvet blanket,
Embroidered with your name.
This scar appeared long ago,
In a time where we were happy,
When we didn't know.
But then you went and left,
And cut me with your words,
This was the gift I don't deserve.
This scar is seen in photos,
It's seen in our memories,
My love for you was total,
Now it's buried within me.
You burned all our bridges,
And said it could never be.
You are the last stitch,
In a tapestry of pain,
A velvet blanket,
Embroidered with your name.

I don't much like this game we play
A game of trick and treat
Like a dog jumping up or playing dead
For just a bit of meat.
You hold the priceless feelings
Just above my head.
Impossible to reach,
With a heart that feels like lead.
I bend and contort my mind
In hopes I won't lose you next.
Every breathless moment
And every misread text.
Pretend for just a second
That I have disappeared.
You'll never see my face again,
Just as you have feared.
The feelings you seek from me,
You'll just have to seek some more
From other girls out there
They have those feelings in store.
Cuz a life waiting to get mine
For when you decide to give 'em
Isn't very fair or proper
For either of us to live in.
Just like it isn't right
For me to lead you on
Knowing I'll be leaving soon.
It's like living in a con.
But I can't help these feelings
As I struggle like never before.
And I whisper to myself, asking
Why do I want this more?

When I voiced my fears.
You assured me of your feelings,
And dried up all my tears.
But you don't notice that she's stealing,
Precious moments from our life.
You don't realize that she's pushing
All my thoughts back into strife.
When you told me you were looking,
For your wonderful new friend.
You hadn't noticed I'd been waiting
For you to come around the bend.
I can't hope to keep on watching
With a silent smile on my face.
So before I end up hurting,
It'll leave without a trace.

Her hair is done, her skin is white.
She'd like to get what's wrong, what's right
But this is her first night out.
She look self-assured but she's scared
She'd like to shout but nobody cares
No wonder why she'll end up hurt
Lost in lust, drugs and sweat.
After 3 Vodaks, she's drunk has hell
She barely stands on her heels
She can't recognize what's wrong, what's real
She really lost her sex-appeal.
But there's that taste on her lips
She won't even protest or scream
Someone is taking her by the hips
Has she passed out in her dreams.
And it's morning, 4 A.M.
She's wondering lonely with a headache.
Her hair is messy, her skin is pink:
She's walking here feeling weak.
She's crying what she has lost
To take it, she'd pay any cost.
She's dreaming of killing the enemy:
The guy who took her virginity.

Suffer in SilenceWaiting again,Suffer in Silence5 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
For the sound of your voice
Speaking softly to me,
I can't wait
My heart breaks,
Every time I see you
Walking by, I think,
It's too late
With every passing moment
The world I know is gone
And even though we're near
I know I don't belong
Why must I suffer in silence?
I never had the chance to say 'Good-Bye'
If you could, would you even hear me?
Or watch me as I suffer, until I die?
You once had,
The world at your fingertips
The weight of the world
Crashed down on you and you,
Lost the fight
You handled things so perfectly
And didn't lose your head
But deep down, underneath it all
You wished that you were dead
Why do you suffer in silence?
You never had the chance to be
Everything you ever wanted to
But still, you're something more to me
I know you're there
You know I care
But why do we suffer in silence?

I did it all for fear,
I did it because of her tears...
Do a trick,
Catch a lick,
Be all sick,
Get to class,
Smoke some glass,
Grab her ass.
Take a hit,
Make it good,
Sit a bit,
In your hood,
Damn you man,
Forgot my plan...
All before the end of freshman year,
All before I realized my fear,
All before I saw her tears...
Don't you stop,
Tell the lies,
Get your munch,
Sit on down,
Throw your lunch,
Don't you frown,
Broke my glass.
I got high so high freshman year,
High enough to forget my fear,
So high I didn't see her tears...
Real world see?
Fill my cup,
In the when,
End my freshman year,
Nightmares and fears,
Tasting her tears.
All before I got high,
Before I thought I could die,
When I knew that I knew how to fly...

A Night With YouAs the the grandfather clock down the hallA Night With You2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Strikes the dark, quiet, midnight hour,
Our footsteps pad quietly to your room.
My hand in yours, I twirl you gracefully,
Our feet dancing over the soft carpet.
My cheek to yours, we dance smiling,
Lit by soft light of a pink lampshade.
On the lavender wall our shadows collide,
Moving together with nothing to lose.
The pajamas you wear, soft under hands,
Shows me a you who's far truer than true.
In this childhood place of yours,
With middle school pictures,
And faded memories,
You've stolen my poetic heart.
The Paramore song, playing softly in the dark,
Drifts beautifully around us,
As we kiss on the desk by the window.
Our eyes closed reflect in the mirror,
The dresses on the floor sparkle,
And the pillows mask our giddy smiles.
My world spins as you curl beside me;
My heart stops as you breathe my name.
I hold you close as sleep takes hold,
Cradling the angel you are,
Whispering "Goodnight" to your fears,
"Sweet dreams" as we drift away.

never existed but in the labyrinth of her head:
a patchwork composition of beautiful, lengthy words
she’d heard in her catatonic state; coma living
day in and day out, reliant on the salvation
of a man made of foreign wishing
and imperfection and necessity – an ignorance
of the less than ideal perception of self she’d
come to fear, absention stained romantic to the point
where daydreams were a standard for survival

Baby, this is it.
Now is your time to choose.
Stay with me, now and forever,
Or the greatest bond, I'm afraid you'll loose.
Don't you see, past my black heart?
Or do the red eyes of blood keep you at bay?
Do you fear the taste of bloody lips?
Hate the smell of rot and decay?
Love, if you won't take me here and now,
Then where am I to go?
This is the time, for you to say
Am I friend or am I foe?
Take that knife in your hands,
Lick the blood away,
Stab me one final time,
As if you are to say:
'I love you, but I hate you more,
That is why I do this.
This is why, I choose to kill,
Instead of to kiss.'
I'll lay dying,
staring up at you.
Letting the blood seep out,
I don't know what to say or do.
I suppose, all that is left,
Is for me to die.
I pray before my eyes close,
You choose to kiss me, one more time.

But I can't tell anyone why i'm always upset,
Because they won't understand....

Everyday that goes by.
And maybe i'm "too young" to know what love is....
But this was something I never felt,
And will never feel again.
I'll never say goodbye.....

I wanted to say sorry for being the person that I am.
It seems that I am isolated,
In this cold world....
I've came to the conclusion that there's nothing to live for.
Just like the first stage of a divorce.

I've chosen to leave this disgrace alone,
And neglect myself to suffer in these thoughts.
So whoever you are...
Just listen to my words.
And that is that I chose to leave this life,
It's always been in my thoughts....
Sorry to whoever cared.
Sorry to myself,
Because I know that one day I would have something to hope for to see a tomorrow.
But these are just thoughts.....
Something in my mind.

In his guilt,
He cannot leave.
He knows what's right,
He knows what's wrong,
But the real sin came from an adult.
Later on into the years,
He forgets the past,
And forgets his tears...
Until one day he sees his friend,
And remembers what really happened to him.
That night he lost his body to someone he thought he could trust.
His thoughts of the existence of love,
Blown away like...dust.
