I saw THE AVENGERS over the weekend. Oh. Wow. I don’t know that words can express just how much I loved that movie. It had it all. Action. Adventure. Sexy men (and a sexy lady) saving the day. Good times. A giant hulk. Thor.
What I loved most about the movie was that all of the heroes were so distinct.
Ironman is the guy with all of the catchy comebacks. He’s a playboy (somewhat reformed now that he’s with his lady). You know he’ll jump right in, not really stopping to think about caution. He’s the wild one.
Then there’s Captain America. Always playing by the rules. Being the “good” guy. I’m not sure he even knows what a playboy is. He talks with respect to ladies, he follows a strong code of honor, and he’s the old-fashioned type.
Next up? Thor. His speech is formal, sometimes confused, but he’s big, he’s sexy, and he could tell me anything, and I’d be excited. Thor has strong ties to family. He’s a warrior who enjoys a good time, and he laughs at battle. A little crazy, maybe? But he’s crazy cool.
Then we have Bruce Banner. In Bruce form, he’s a bit reserved, quiet, withdrawn. He’s smart, but not flashy. Kind of a nerd type. But when he gets angry…then he’s a giant beast who likes to smash things. And is anything wrong with a good smashing time?
These were my four favorite heroes from the movie. Sure, there are plenty of other heroes that I enjoy (Superman springs immediately to mind), but I’m curious…which heroes do you like? What makes them so special for you?
