Tug of War: Marvel or DC?

I’ve been pretty busy this week so I haven’t dropped by to The Matticus Kingdom to check out your answers but I just did a quick skim and there’s been a lot of comments which is fantastic.  If you haven’t read THIS post, asking you join into The Offical  Matticus Kingdom Tug of War, well, you probably should head over HERE to check it out instead! This should spark a pretty interesting tug of war 🙂 If you are into the DC universe, well, go ahead and tug hard and well, if you want Marvel to win, pull back with all your might.

The question we are tugging for in this war is: Which universe of superheroes (and villains) is superior: Marvel or DC?

Now, the big question here is which side did I pick? I could’ve just answered in the comments but you know, I like to talk and ramble 😉 I’ll try to keep it short, ok?

Just in case you are unfamiliar, because I’m a mega beginner.  I only know about either of them because of movies.  Here’s a poster for each of them.

So, which side am I going to pull with all my force, right?

Its really funny actually.  For all of today before I sat down to write this and search up those images, I was thinking I’d back DC comics because hey, there’s Batman, Catwoman, The Joker and some pretty impressive heros and villains.  I haven’t experienced the apparent awesomeness (from what I’e heard) of Arrow yet so it wouldn’t be fair to include that.

But, as much as it pains me to say this, lets get those apologies out there. I’m sorry, Batman, I had to let you go. I can’t defend DC Universe. If one of my really good friends read this, she will give me a lesson also, but still…

*sigh of relief* Now that thats out of the way. I’m joining all of you tugging for Marvel.

Now, hear me out, ok? I had to pick a side and not just a hero.  If it was a hero, Batman would win hands-down but I took a good hard look at DC Universe and what its had to offer (in terms of movies).  Other than Batman and Catwoman, Green Lantern was a disaster and not to mention a snoozefest. Watchmen was a mega weird one and still so boring (but apparenlty I’m the minority who thinks that), and well, I didn’t see Jonah Hex because Megan Fox was in it and I don’t really want to watch it. Call it a lack of exposure to other DC universe characters but they aren’t winning over my heart right this moment.

Isn't this concept art poster so cool?

With that said, Marvel has done a great job.  All the characters are fun.  Wolverine and X-men kicked some ass along with Cyclops and Rogue and the whole bunch.  Even the villains were pretty bad-ass.  I mean Xavier to Magneto, epic! 🙂 Then, just look at The Avengers. Would you want to mess with The Hulk? I wouldn’t.  I mean, thats one of the reasons, I would not choose DC either.  I mean, Joker is pretty nasty but some big-ass green dude can probably crush me.  Look over at the positives: Thor is just fantastic, I mean, he’s a demi-god. I think that says it all.  Ironman is not godly but he is quite torn and broken but pretty powerful in his own way.  And then, we have Hawkeye who is a great archer and Black Widow is a femme fatale right now.  A great team right there! Oh and how can I forget, Blade is in this mix also.  Who doesn’t love a vampires? I know I do!


What wins it for me has to be Spiderman though.  I mean, it was pretty much a battle between Spiderman and Batman in the first place.  I’m not very much Tobey Maguire Spiderman as opposed to Andrew Garfield but Spiderman is quite Amazing in itself.  There’s a god, a few superhumans and some pretty awesome fighting capabilities in this mesh and I’d say Marvel is the winner, for me at least 🙂

Do you agree? Maybe you disagree and you’re more of a DC Universe supporter? Head on over to the Matticus Kingdom HERE.  If you don’t want to do a post, then just leave a comment so that you can make sure that you give a bigger chance to your side.

Keep on tugging! Tomorrow is the last day to help out your side! 🙂

Tagged AGAIN!

I always love to play TAG! Last week, I got tagged by Rarasaur and I went on and tagged a few others of my own who participated in the game.  A few days ago, I got tagged again.  This time, its by the absolutely awesome ruler of the Matticus Kingdom, DJ Matticus.

versatileblogger111Now he didn’t just tag me that day.  Please allow me to go off on a tangent now.  On the same day, he gave me an award also, The Versatile Blogger Award.  I’m not going to write extensively on it.  However I’d like to give a huge THANKS to him! This is the 3rd time I’ve gotten this award and he’s helped me believe that I’ve achieved some sort of versatility thats being enjoyed by all of you! I’m super happy about that because if its anything I’m good at, its being versatile.  You know, jack of all trades, master of none 😉  Thats me! However, as much as its about me, its also about him.  If you haven’t stopped by his awesome blog and kingdom, that has just started a new segment of Tug of War blogging style, you need head on over and show him some love right HERE!  And if you already know him, then still head over and check out his blog, maybe he’ll have something new for you to explore.  Once I figure out how to rearrange the awards on the side bar to give everyone their acknowledgement for the awards that I’ve got, it’ll be right there for you to see.

Now back to business, I’m sure a lot of you have already seen this blogging TAG going around but still, here are the rules:

1. Post these rules.  
2. Post a photo of yourself and eleven random facts about you.
3. Answer the questions given to you in the tagger’s post.
4. Create eleven new questions and tag new people to answer them.
5. Go to their blog/twitter and let them know they have been tagged.

I’ve had so many pictures of me lately so I’ll just re-use a recent one.

With my new Disney addition, Lotso from Toy Story 3 watching Oscars

11 Facts about me:

1. I love daffodils!

2. Les Miserables is my favorite musical but Wicked is very close behind.

3. I love exotic fruits.  My favorite is starfruits.

4. I will exit the house if I smell a durian anywhere near me.

5. I love finishing things by myself and I’m obsessed with puzzles.

6. I’m totally into the Resident Evil movies and can’t wait for the next one to come out.

7. I hate movies that end where everyone dies and the purpose all backfired because it makes me feel like I’ve wasted my time.  The most recent example I have is The International.

8. I’d like to see a reboot of Hercules Poirot some time.  Sherlock gets his shot in movies and TV series but we should show some love to Agatha Christie

9. As much as I love Dr. Seuss, the best story book to me Love Me Forever by Robert Munsch.

10. I just started having this immense addiction to peanut butter.  President Choice style made from just 100% peanuts.

11. You probably already know this but I’m mega chickenshit when it comes to horror movies, but I love to watch it for the adrenaline rush.

There you have it.  Some more facts about me! Now for my turn to answer some questions

DJ Matticus asked probably the hardest questions to answer *glares at him*…but I will try to answer them.  I’m always up for a challenge!

1) What is the funniest movie you’ve ever seen that wasn’t supposed to be a comedy?  (MST3K movies don’t count.)

I don’t know what MST3K.  Am I supposed to? Clash of the Titans (the one from a few years back with Sam Worthington) definitely ruled in the “so bad its good” (maybe) area.  I still think its a crappy movie but I can tell you me and my friend had a blast just making fun of it and laughing AT it.  I’m sure it wasn’t with it.

2) What is the least funny movie you’ve ever seen that was supposed to be a comedy?

This one is no-brainer.  Austin Powers! Man, that movie put me in some serious REM sleep.  I don’t think I ever passed out faster.  My cousin woke me up in disbelief and then I really tried to watch it and 30 seconds later, ZZZZzzzz!!

3) Is there a line, for you, where one side the comedy is genius, and the other side is “too far?”

Jokes about race is probably in that area.  Like I wouldn’t sit down and watch The Dictator because I’ve seen some of the jokes and some of it seems a bit overboard.  However, I’d gladly sit down and watch a stand up comedy show of Russell Peters as he mocks them but it doesn’t seem to be as ill-mannered, especially if most of the people have experienced it and find some joy in it.  I don’t know if I even make sense.  Did I even answer this question?

4) If you ever said, “Hey boys, lookie what I got here,” what would you have?

Umm…a car…magazine…Top Gear preferably

5) Can you ever see yourself crushing on Mongo?

I’m gonna go ahead and say no because one, I had to research who this Mongo is. And the results came to Blazing Saddles movie which I haven’t seen.  So in the sense of total and complete lack of knowledge, thats the only answer I could have.  Unless there’s always the “maybe” option.

6) Why are you SO tired?

Nightmares about being late for work deadlines *shutters* Work, please leave me alone!

7) Where are all the *ahem* women at?

At home? I can’t help you with that.  All my girl friends are at home and they are the only women I can refer to…or wait..Montreal is known for something else but thats inappropriate for this blog space or else the search results are going to be even more absurd than they already are.

8) If you could send a telegram, who would you send one to and what would it say?

Thats a tough choice and I’ll choose to pass on this question.  So many people I would send a telegram to that my brain is currently overloading…

9) Who would you want to choreograph your dance routine?

No one.  I can do those myself 🙂 Used to do that with my friends for a few Chinese cultural fairs.

10) If you could ride off into the sunset, would you pick a limo to do it in? Or…?

Nah no limo for me..so bulky.  I’d pick a Toyota Supra, my dream car 🙂 or a Nissan Skyline works also.

11) Would you ever ride a horse on a blazing saddle?

No…I love adventure but not into that blazing part 😉

Here are my eleven questions:

1. Whats your favorite flower?

2. Whats your favorite musical? Broadway, movie, whatever you’d like?

3. How do you feel about durian? (If you don’t know what it is, I included the link)

4. Do you like to eat exotic fruits? Whats your fave?

5. If you were asked to put together a 3000 piece puzzle, would you do it by yourself or ask for help?

6. Do you have a favorite “so bad its good” movie? Which one is it?

7. What movie do you absolutely loathe watching and had the feeling that you wanted to burn or break it for wasting your time?

8. What book would you like to see adapted into a movie?

9. If you had a shelf of children’s storybooks, which would you choose?

10. Whats the one place you dream of seeing or thing you want to do in your lifetime?

11. What is the scariest supernatural being?

If you’re still reading this, I’m tagging YOU and I hope that you join in.  Write up a post to tag other people  and remember to link back to this post or put it in my comments to just answer the questions.  I do own a versatile blog *wink* so there are people who drop by from photography, food, writing, book reviews, movie reviews, etc blogs. I know sometimes its sounds awkward to post up one of these random posts about being tagged.  I don’t want to make it like I’m forcing you to do it.  If you think you’ll have fun with this one, then do it. I hope to hear all your awesome answers! I know I’m slightly breaking the rules but hey, just once in a while is acceptable, right? 😉

Tug of War: Chicken or Egg?

After we were hit with the Bloggers’ Tag game a few days ago, DJ Matticus over at The Matticus Kingdom suggested maybe to do a tug of war online,so we started thinking and eventually reaching out to Rarasaur to help.  And here’s whats become of that! This is in response to The Matticus Kingdom’s first ever Tug of War.  Join into the fun by going to the link that I put and either write a post and link back or just leave him a comment to see.  And in a week (less now 6 days), the counters will decide which side wins.

The prompt: Which came first – the chicken or the egg?

Being on the road yesterday didn’t leave me much time to answer right away but I promised that I’d have one up today! Its going to be short and I could’ve argued both ways.  There was a phase in my nerdy  geeky life that I had pondered that question and almost did my public speaking topic on it until I thought it was ridiculous so I pushed it aside.

But now, I get to talk about that!

So my choice on one of the biggest paradox in the world. For me, my choice has to be egg! As much as I’d like to argue with DJ Matticus, I’ve always believed in the egg being first. I can hear you asking me why already? Egg has to be first.  It would be an evolution from fossilized rocks.  Some genes gets mixed in and voila, here it is! The egg hatched into the chicken.  Of course, that has to be totally by chance and eventually it would be extinct like most (or all) of the creatures from millions of years ago.  By then, the chickens were able to lay their eggs and they would hatch into more and more chicks and so continues the circle of life.

I can hear all your arguments and you are welcome to argue with me in the comments.  I’m going to go the agree to disagree path 😉 However, another time, if you do want, why not drop a comment or write a post to help your side win. Lets solve this paradox together in the first ever tug of war!

AND most importantly, a HUGE THANKS to DJ Matticus for starting this awesome blogging game of tug of war!

Happy Saturday everyone!  I’m out to do some shopping with my friends at Vaughn Mills! Never been..it should be fun 🙂
