just caught a body bout a week ago
Yesterday I went to the movies to catch a screening of DBZ: Battle of Battle of Gods. I didn’t have time to Prime Up, so I threw on the first Spider-Man shirt I could grab and hauled butt cheeks to make it to the theatre in time. As I’m walking up to the theatre I see a dude wearing a DC villains shirt getting out of his car. It was a cool looking Legion of Doom-ish shirt so I did something I normally don’t do and I call out to the guy, “Like that shirt, playa.”
He turns around and goes, “Uh, thanks…Hey, I like YOUR shirt.”
“Why thank you.” I say thinking that was it and still having the Dragonball Zs on my mind.
But he slows down and waits for me to get side by side with him and starts walking with me. “That’s my favorite superhero.” He says with a mile wide grin.
Trying to fight through my social anxiety, I say to him, “That’s cool; he’s my second favorite superhero.”
“Who’s your first?” He asks with a head tilt.
“Superman.” I reply with a confident and knowing nod.
“I’m sorry.” He frowns back.
Sorry for what? I don’t know, I didn’t ask because after that I was 100% done with that conversation, but he kept going.
“I don’t really like DC.” He says trying to keep pace with me.
“Uh huh.” I shrug.
“I just like the Joker,” He motions to the Clown Prince of Crime plastered front and center on his shirt. “And Batman.”
“Of course you do,” I offer a glance at the smiling white face centered on his shirt. “Just like everyone else. Of course you do.”
“Well, um, I don’t like them because of the movies.” He defensively reacts. “I think the comics are better written.”
“Is that right?” I side-eye him as we near the theatre doors.
Without a second word, he breaks off from me and goes to stand at the far right of the entrance to wait on his friends. This is why I usually mind my own damn business in public because I run into folk like him. Why do I only meet Marvel is Better/DC is Better friendos in public? I don’t understand why I can’t meet one person with a shred of respect and common sense. I just want to talk comics without bias, is that so much to ask?
Left is the new Wonder Woman. Being deemed still too skinny and frail.
Right is Kacy Catanzaro, the first female to advance to the finals of American Ninja. Considered strong and inspiring to female athletes.
Stop assuming someone is weak based off your closed minded ignorant ideals.
I hadn’t really considered this. Interesting point!

Who is the dude in blue in the 2nd gif, and will he be taking off his shirt soon, please? And turning around? And bending over?
Woot for War Patriot’s presence.
You better listen to your own words Sonic.
He’s obviously testing his limits with this whole “game jumping” thing
He’s gone turbo.
this scene fucked me up because he really didn’t care about being rich and powerful. he just wanted to fuck the world in the ass
Well, ‘ere, lads, you’ve discovered a species hitherto unknown to science, quite possibly non-terrestrial in origin, and you kicked its fuckin’ head in!
