To honor the passing of the now late Stan Lee, the creator of Marvel, I thought I'd do a take at the Marvel-themed Controversy meme. Without waiting any further, let's get started!
Favorite Hero: Steve Rogers/Captain America. Ah, yes, Captain America, the original Avenger. I love everything about this guy! He knows what to do, and when to do it! Chris Evans, you are a excellent actor when playing the first Avenger! (And by the way, Mr. Evans, we will forever cherish you as Captain America, even if and when you finish your job.)
Honorable Mentions: Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow, Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tobey Maguire and Tom Holland), Tony Stark/Iron Man, Gamora, Bruce Banner/The Incredible Hulk, Thor, Clint Barton/Hawkeye, Vision, Wanda Maximoff/Scarlett Witch, Jean Grey/Dark Phoenix, Groot, Rocket Raccoon, etc.
Despised Heroes: The Ravagers. I don't really think these guys have the guts to be like the Guardians of The Galaxy. Enough said.
Dishonorable Mentions: Steve Rogers/Captain America (Matt Salinger, Captain America (1990)), Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield, The Amazing Spider-Man), The Fantastic 4 (Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan, Kate Mara and Jamie Bell, FANT4STIC), etc.
Favorite Villains: Thanos, Red Skull and Venom. Thanos: Talk about badarse! Wiping out half the universe!? How surprising (and sad) is that!? How does Josh Brolin do it!? Red Skull: What's not to love about Captain America's arch enemy? Especially if he's played by Hugo Weaving. You know, Agent Smith (The Matrix, Megatron from Bayformers 1, 2 and 3, V from V For Vendetta, etc.). And Venom: Always liked this guy. Heck I even liked him in Spider-Man 3, but I mostly liked him when he's Eddie more. I like him in his own film a whole lot more.
Honorable Mentions: Loki, Nebula, Ultron, Doctor Octopus, The Mandarin, Abomination, Doctor Doom, etc.
Despised Villain: Ava Starr/Ghost. I'm sorry guys, but I could not find any sympathy for this weak-motivated, manipulative b-word. She didn't seem that menacing if you think about it. Argue all you want about Blackarchnia from Transformers Animated, Catwoman, T-X from Terminator 3, etc., but face it, they had motivation for their manipulative sides. Ghost's motivation is completely weak and unjustified. If she suffered Thanos' death wave, then it serves her right.
Dishonorable Mention: Victor Von Doom/Doctor Doom (Toby Kebbell, FANT4STIC).
Most Overrated Character: Sorry. I can't really find an overrated character here.
Most Underrated Character: Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow. This strong and self-independent gal really is a great example for young women, and I really recommend her soon-to-be origin film. Scarlett Johansson will always be the REAL Black Widow.
Honorable Mentions: Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel, Gamora, Nebula, Mary-Jane Watson, Vision, Wanda Maximoff/Scarlett Witch, Hope van Dyne/Wasp, Rocket Raccoon, etc.
Favorite Shows: The Spectacular Spider-Man and The Super Hero Squad Show. The Spectacular Spider-Man: How come nobody talks about this show? It's so good! Talk about eye-popping animation! Shame it never had a third season, though. The Super Hero Squad Show: Now this is how you take super heroes and make it more appealing to younger audiences... without toilet humor or childish behavior. (Well, a little bit from Hulk.) Take notes on this, Teen Titans Go!!
Despised Show: None to be found here.
Favorite Couple: Steve Rogers X Natasha Romanoff/Captain America X Black Widow. These two really have interacted a lot throughout the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and, a little fun fact; Chris Evans (The actor who plays Steve) and Scarlett Johansson (The actress who plays Nat) actually interacted together before in The Nanny Diaries and The Perfect Score. What a twist! I would highly recommend Steve and Nat become a couple in Avengers 4.
Honorable Mentions: Peter Parker X Mary-Jane Watson, Tony Stark X Pepper Potts, Vision X Wanda Maximoff, Logan/James Howlett X Jean Grey, Peter Quill X Gamora, Bruce Banner X Betty Ross, Clint Barton X Laura Barton, Steven Strange X Christine, etc.
Despised Couple: Steve Rogers X Sharon Carter. This couple was WAY too forced and un-developed. It seemed to cliché and downright generic, if you ask me.
Dishonorable Mentions: Bruce Banner X Natasha Romanoff, Clint Barton X Natasha Romanoff, Peter Parker X Gwen Stacey, etc.
Favorite Movies: Captain America: The First Avenger and Avengers: Infinity War. Captain America: The First Avenger: Such a great origin story for the first, original Avenger, unlike some film I'll be ripping apart later. Avengers: Infinity War: 10 years of action, drama, comedy and romance and this is where it all comes down to. I sure can't wait for part 2 soon next year, but first thing's first, we need to see Captain Marvel's film.
Honorable Mentions: The Avengers (2012), Avengers: Age Of Ultron, Iron Man trilogy, Guardians of The Galaxy 1 and 2, Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy, Thor trilogy, Spider-Man: Homecoming, etc.
Despised Movies: Captain America (1990) and FAN4TISC. Captain America (1990): Why, Marvel, why? FAN4TISC: Talk about downright horrible! Not to mention how Doctor Doom had little-to-no screen time at all!
And, there you have it. My Marvel meme. Feel free to leave a comment on witch category/categories you agree on.
Rest In Piece, Stan Lee.
