Our first reaction? Well welcome to GWG Reacts to FNAF Sister Location! We are ready to delve into the short teaser! Is that Mangle? Is that Freddy? WTF is that? Why do their heads open? WHO THOUGHT THAT WAS A GOOD IDEA?
Now, of course, we everyday superhero fans don't have a time machine to rewrite the history of these two characters, nor do we have creative license to govern where either Aquaman or Namor the Sub-Mariner will develop from this point.
Still, the writer of this article does have some suggestions for how each should develop, and if they should happen to develop in any of the ways suggested here, it would likely bring a breath of fresh air to both characters, and probably way more mainstream love and appreciation.
Within this author's previous article, 'The Super Friends: Heroes For a Younger Audience', the idea was mentioned that perhaps the four 'ethnic' heroes that Hanna-Barbera contributed to the Super Friends needed to be rebooted by DC for the modern audience. However, for the sake of not getting off track from that article's message, elaboration on this idea was delayed until later. For those of you curious as to what that idea was, though, you're in luck: it's later.
So, as the previous article mentions, some time into its production, the Super Friends show introduced a quartet of heroes whose creation aimed solely at the diversification of the Super Friends from appearing to be entirely composed of Caucasians. However, in the midst of creating these token characters, little consideration was given to their backgrounds, let alone their appearances or their powers. With some help from modern-day DC artists (and perhaps the suggestions of one particular writer), that could all change.
I've been thinking about the Super Friends lately. Everybody remembers that show, right? Basically, a Hanna-Barbera TV incarnation of the Justice League, with a couple heroes added in, taken out, replaced, etc.
Now, when we think back to the Super Friends, what do we think of? Aquaman riding on giant seahorses, Wonder Woman riding around in an "invisible" (really, transparent) jet and the Wonder Twins' shapeshifting powers being used for the most absurd combinations, each of which attempting to make the lame, the mundane or the absurd seem cool. This was undoubtedly a result of the times, when weed, coke and heroin were reaching a fever pitch.
Honestly, I can think of no other explanation or justification.
Though, in my opinion, that name didn't deserve to be retired from the DC Universe. Okay, so bear with me, before shooting down the idea as crazy or silly or absurd.
Okay, so for any and all who know me (from real life, or from being among the earliest fans of my friends' Facebook page, The Superpower List), I am a fan of nearly any and all Superheroes. Superman, Batman, Spiderman, Daredevil, Justice League, X-Men, Teen Titans, Avengers, Legion of Super-Heroes, Fantastic Four, the Incredibles, etc, etc. So, I sort of take offense when folks take part in making fun of a certain superhero. At least, I do when they don't deserve the flack they're taking.
For example, the Wonder Twins.
These two heroes have not gotten a break ever since their tenure among the Super Friends, alongside the likes of Invisible-Plane Wonder Woman, Giant-Seahorse-riding Aquaman, Black-Lightning-ripoff Black Vulcan, and those other three whose names unfortunately elude most mainstream superhero fans (Apache Chief, Samurai and Eldorado, for anybody besides me, who also cares). That said, these two, if taken into any serious capacity (and hopefully barring the further use of their ridiculous catchphrase 'Wonder Twin powers, activate!'), are not to be messed with.
A pair of fraternal twin siblings from the alien planet Exxor, Zan and Jayna possess the power to shapeshift any time they make physical contact. Zan could assume any form composed of any phase of water (whether solid, liquid or gas, and in any number of different shapes), while Jayna could assume the form of any animal (including extinct and alien creatures, as long as they weren't sentient--couldn't turn into another humanoid shape).
I sat here thinking about what i would write for a Blog post, since i'm not very good at these sort of things. I figured i'd do a longer Bio, which i will one of these days, but trashed that idea. So, i thought, What do i geek out about most? The answer is Disney. Why not make a list of my favorites? Perfect.
I Love Disney. I have always Loved Disney, and will always Love Disney. I was raised on Disney.
I mean, hell, the first time i went to Disneyland i was 3 months old.
In the Span of 1 year i ended up ruining 3 VHS tapes of The Little Mermaid, because i watched it too damn much when i was a child. All Day Err’ Day!
These movies, the imagination, creativity, and belief that it instilled in me as a child, and adult have molded me into the person i am today.
It’s my home away from home. My escape.
I love how i can come home after a horrid day, turn on one of my favorite disney movies, and be smiling 5 minutes later.
So, here are my Top 6 Favorite Disney Movies.
Why 6? Because I couldn’t narrow it to 5, honestly.
