You, Me and The Hulk..
So I have a guilty little confession.
I’m a comic book junkie.
Always have been, and I always will be.
I’m mainly an X-Men girl..in love with the stories, the art and the ASS KICKING!
Something about the fantastic..and the unsual is alluring – seductive, almost.
Something about the ability to do more than an average human..to create fire from your fingertips, control the weather, move things with your mind..it’s so amazing. Just the CONCEPT..the “what if?” scenario. What if I could..what would I do? Would I be a hero? Would I be a villain? Would I live life quietly, wishing I never had that ability?
Let’s just say..I could go ON and ON about this forever. LOL
Moving on to my original point..
We went to see The Incredible Hulk today..and I’ve gotta say..
I love the Hulk.
Just..in general. I love the story of Bruce Banner..and the way he IS a good guy – just with a small Jekkyl and Hyde problem.
But hey, who here doesn’t have a temper of SOME kind? Even the kindest soul has a limit.
Admit it 0 you know..we all have that problem – not to the Hulk’s extent..but when enough’s enough..come on! Who here hasn’t had a single moment where they’ve thought of kicking someone 500 feet away because they’re ANNOYING as all heck?
So anyway, back to my love of the Hulk.
He’d make a great boyfriend, I think. He’s very manly..and to the point..and loyal, I bet..and probably kinda snuggly. And..uhm..you know..HA! I’ll keep the rest to myself.
He’s a hero ultimately – though he may not feel like one. He fights because he HAS to. He has to defend himself..to defend his love..to defend those around him from others like him. An unlikely hero, so to speak.
Do you watch superhero movies? Superman..Batman..X-Men..Spiderman..Iron-Man..Hulk..? Do you walk out of the theater feeling powerful? Unstoppable? Untouchable! I do. I always feel like..I live in this world..of bills, responsibility and work. But. I belong on that other world. The world filled with the fantastic..the unimaginable..the unbelievable. I belong in a black leather costume saving the world – helping people, yet looking amazingly sexy at the same time. I belong in an invisible jet..or flying through the night sky with my own cool cape.
Back to the real world. Back to work. And bills. And cooking. And leather being unacceptable in a work environment.
