For today’s share day I would like to set a topic. What Comic Book Hero did you want to be when you were a kid and why?
There was more than just one for me. Three easily come to mind, Batman, Green Arrow, and SGT. Rock.
1st.- Batman, what kid didn’t want to be Batman? Here was this guy that had the money to buy and do anything that he wanted to, but he decided to fight crime instead. I wouldn’t say we were dirt poor, but we were pretty dang close, so seeing someone with money wanting to help out was really cool. All of his weapons were not that too far fetched, and as a kid you can believe I tried to make a lot of them. He had the coolest car and other vehicles out there, heck I still would love to take a ride in the Bat Mobile. Then you had the pretty girls that hung around him. What little boy didn’t have a crush on Bat Girl or Catwoman?
2nd.- Green Arrow, a lot of the same reasons I liked Batman for are the same for Green Arrow. But, he had a bow! Anytime I had a chance to make and shoot a bow you can sure enough bet I was doing so. One of my best presents ever as a kid was my J.C. Penny’s practice bow that my mom gave me. And I can say that she never regreted it one bit, it got me outside and out of her hair. Yes I was very safe using it to. I even tried to make some of GA’s trick arrows, most of which didn’t work for me like they did for him.
3rd.- SGT. Rock, he was a great soldier fighting for his country, this was something that I knew I could grow up to be. The very first SGT. Rock cover I saw, wow I had to get that book. Here he was surrounded by the enemy and all he had to fight them with was an ammo belt from a machine gun, and he was kicking butt. When I was of age I did join the military and I made my way up in rank. I was proud to be able to serve my country, and I am still proud of my service and my country.
Okay, enough from me lets hear from you.
