All manner of scifi/fantasy/nerdness: Roleplaying, comic books, .... okay, so mainly just RPGs & comic books. And Dr. Who. And Firefly. And comic books. And role-playing games. And Community. And Buffy the Vampire Slayer. And comic books. And RPGs. And Avengers. And RPGS. And whatever else amuses me today...
I’m curious about something.
How many of you came to the DC or Marvel universes initially through either the films, or animated series?
Did you fall in love with superheroes through comics, or was your first real exposure to them from other media?
And finally, specifically, does your love for a certain character or team stem in any way from film or animation, by which I mean, are you a Batman or X-men fan, for example, at least partially due to the films or cartoons?
This is for a reason…thanks!
Growing up in the ’80s, my parents felt that comic books had gotten too dark and gritty, not appropriate for a young reader. My grandparents would give me older comic books here and there that were “approved” by my parents, but they were mostly non-Superhero books (Richie Rich, etc), or if I got a superhero comic it was only an issue here or there, no complete story lines and not enough to really “get into” comic books.
