Random Ridiculous Realization #G

I just realized something bizarre.

My two favorite DC characters: Guy Gardner and Sanderson Hawkins

My two favorite Marvel characters: Hank Pym and Bucky Barnes.

So that means my favorite characters in both companies include an entertainingly crazy jerk and a re-envisioned, slightly traumatized ex-sidekick from the 1940s.

I really do have a "type". Egads.

    Heh heh. I can agree with you on three of them, but Hank Pym just sets my teeth on edge.

    I think that it's because he's so whiney. Guy may be a lot of things, but he doesn't whine.

    But Bucky IS quite interesting lately.

    Are you reading Avengers - Earth's Mightiest Heroes II? The series has a pretty good focus on Hank back when he was Giant Man. It's wonderfully written by Joe Casey, too.

    Hawkeye calling Hank "Highpockets" is one of my favorite things about Giant Man. There's just something so adorably Silver-Agey about that.

    I dunno, I find Guy Garnder a touch more well-adjusted than Hank Pym.

    Yeah. I realized that between Mary Jane, Barbara Gordon and Red Sonja, my type must be "redheads who could kick my ass without trying"

    its odd but Ive always liked Bucky
    always thought he'd be one of those people that actually stayed dead
    found out about the Winter Soldier thing a month ago and thought it was dumb, didnt check any back issues
    but then I read Winter Kills and now I want more Bucky
    just hope they don't mess it up
    dont make him an asshole

    Ive always hated assholes in comics and Guy but for about a year now, reading some back issues, I've been marvelling in the awesomeness that is Guy Gardner

    if i had a type its probably teenagers and that doesn't sound good
