My Top 2 Favorite Superhero’s Who Sometimes Aren’t Heroes

Also, this posts is not for children below 15 and there are spoilers for some of the heroes mentioned.

1. Deadpool

Deadpool is funny, a smart ass, badass and has a fine ass. He is one of the best adult anti-heroes (why yes parent’s he is not for your children, it was rated R wasn’t it?).  This Ryan Reynolds crossed with a shar-pei hero defiantly counts as one of the most badass anti-heroes but he is pretty super. He did defeat the awful Francis, right? Well, he killed him, but we all wanted him dead, except for Colossus he wanted Deadpool to do the right thing.

He is my favorite because of all the sarcasm, breaking fourth walls and hilarious scenes. The comics are just as good (better) and the movie captured them.

Where is this guy?

Deadpool is also a very strong minded character from starting out as a very good looking guy to going to am avacado had sex with an older avacdo face when he tried to get rid of his cancer and that was all he had and thought that was all Vanessa cared about. He was sad and just wanted his life back. He did it the way he could by surviving and hunting down the man who did it to him instead of weeping in a corner crying.

Deadpool isn’t a standard hero but if I was in a tight space and needed help I would defiantly call him!

“If I ever decide to become a crime-fighting shit swizzler, who rooms with a bunch of other little whiners at Neverland Mansion with some creepy, old, bald, Heaven’s Gate-looking motherfucker… on that day, I’ll send your shiny, happy ass a friend request.”Deadpool to Colossus

Here is the new Deadpool Trailer which I adore, so many easter eggs:

2. Jessica Jones

Some of you may have heard of the Netflix original Jessica Jones., I love it and she is my favorite female hero. Jessica isn’t the average hero or perse a hero in general to most people but I call her a hero. Jessica has been through a lot due to Kilgrave who manipulated her, she shows real flaws and a real personality. With what Kilgrave put her through and how she copes and still helps people, I say that makes her a damn good hero any day.

Jessica is a private detective also who doesn’t take any shit and gets stuff done; she sniffs out the cheaters and exposes them and other people who are low lives. Though she uses methods that are unethical which is why she can sometimes get in trouble, though, she gets her cases done and gets the person.

Jessica Jones

As I said, Jessica has a good heart she has just been through a really big trauma in her life but is a survivor and I truly admire that in her, she survives no matter what. The show shows her struggles and how deep they are especially win Kilgrave returns, though, she still does the right thing.  Jessica is a very powerful woman.

“They say everyone’s born a hero. But if you let it, life will push you over the line until you’re the villain. Problem is, you don’t always know that you’ve crossed that line. Maybe it’s enough that the world thinks I’m a hero.”Jessica Jones

The Walking Dead: My Thoughts So Far

The Walking Dead


So I started watching The Walking Dead (TWD), it reminds of a show that got cancelled named Revolution but with a better plot and zombies.

Revolution was about the power being shut down and the world going into panic, the government left them and the US was divided into the rebels and a more dictating group. It starred a young girl named Charlie Matheson who grew up in the dark world and when her mother was taken she was sent to find Miles Matheson, her uncle. Anyways, the story goes on about fighting the “dictating” part of the government that has taken over the United States and trying to get the power back on, the plot dies off soon after.

In The Walking Dead there are various plot twists and various stories to entertain you. The first plot stars Ric Grimes (played by Andrew Lincoln) trying to find his family and thrown into a world of Zombies or “Walkers” that he has never seen before. I’m not going to say much more because I don’t want to spoil the show.

Then it progresses farther and farther as the story goes on with various plot twists. The plot twists can drive you insane but it keeps you on the edge of your seat and begging for another episode.

The characters are complex and deep, and you fall in love with them which kinda sucks at times.

I’m only on Season 2 but I absolutely love the show, and can’t wait to watch more. The show is heartbreaking yet amazing.

Blue Exorcist: Anime Review

Blue Exorcist (Ao No Exorcist)

Stars: 5
Animation: 4
Story: 5
Character Development: 5
All together: 4.5


Blue Exorcist is about a boy named Rin Okumura and his brother Yukio and how they are the sons of Satan, while only Rin has powers. Rin doesn’t find out until he’s a certain age and the results are dire. Rin is sent to True Cross academy to become an Exorcist and harness his abilities, Rin meets friends along the way and learns hard life lessons.

The show has very many heartbreaking, feel crushing moments that will make you fall in love with the characters like Shiemi, Ryuji, Izumo and the rest of the crew. All the characters have unique stories and you love them all. You learn Yukio is a teacher at the exorcist school and he tutors Rin and is his dorm room mate. They are the only ones in that house so the others come over often and there are many stories there. The story is moving and you root for the characters the whole way, especially Rin and Shiemi.

The animation is adorable, it could be better in some places as I have seen anime’s with better animation so that is why I gave animation four stars instead of five.

Supernatural: Fact vs Fiction Part 2

 Supernatural Fact vs. Fiction

Part 2: Creatures of the Night

Part 1: http://fandomgeeklife.com/supernatural-fact-vs-fiction/


 

 

1. Wendigo 

The Supernatural episode “Wendigo” aired on September 20th, 2005

Sam and Dean make a stop at Blackwater Ridge and end up helping a young woman and her brother find their other brother, who mysteriously disappeared, while on a camping trip, in the woods.IMDb 'Supernatural: Wendigo'

 

Wendigo’ are someone possessed by a creature. They can be a separate creature but it depends on the legend. The Wendigo is an Algonquin-based Native American legend but known among many other Native American tribes as well. It is also known well on the Atlantic Coast or the Great Lakes. 

 

It is believed to be demonic based in all legends told. Wendigo’s are usually created through cannibalism, the spirits then inhabited them by what they eat.

 

Roughly translated, the word ‘Wendigo’ means ‘the evil spirit that devours mankind’. Another translation, said to be made by a German explorer around 1860, equates the word ‘Wendigo’ with ‘cannibal’. Wendigoag are said to have an insatiable hunger for human flesh – no matter how much flesh they eat, they remain hungry.Ancient Origins: Wendigo

 

The other story of a Wendigo, is the Wendigo made a deal with the devil to become a warrior. A human possesses it inside its heart and the only way to kill it is to kill the human.

 

The human that is being possessed by the Wendigo has no idea what is going on. When the person/wendigo is killed that person can be rescued.

 

2. Bloody Mary

 “Bloody Mary” also aired in 2005 but in October.

A game of Bloody Mary unleashes a ghost who lives in mirrors and kills by gouging out the eyes of her prey, Sam and Dean must find a way to stop her before she claims another victim.IMDb 'Supernatural: Bloody Mary'

 

This legend name also known as “Mary Worth” “Mary Worthington” “Mary Whales” “Mary White” “Hell Mary” and many others.

 

The legend goes the same way as the Supernatural episode. Instead of blood pouring out their eyes it pours out of the sink, tub, etc. then they die with scars of their face.

 

There are a couple stories floating around about how and why this urban legend got started and if it’s real.

A lot people say its real and a lot do not.  One is over a hundred years ago a witch that did dark magic was hanged and her spirit haunts the mirror and kills whoever says her name dies.

There are more but I am going to give one famous one:

Mary Tudor was the daughter of the notorious King Henry the VIII who is famous for putting his wives to death whenever he grew tired of them. Mary was the daughter of his first wife and so ended up seeing an awful lot of carnage over the years as King Henry VIII put to death not only his wives but a great many of the people around him. To make things worse, for years she was disowned by her father and made to do things like serve in the household of her younger half-sister as a reminder of her new status as an illegitimate child. She grew up in the looming shadow of her unpredictable father, he was the most powerful man in England and could make her life miserable or put it in danger at any moment. When Mary Tudor became Queen of England at the age of 37 she finally had a chance to do things her way, but unfortunately her way turned out to be things like burning people at the stake because they refused to follow the same religion as hers. Soon large portions of the population started to detest her and her unyielding ways, leading to riots and rebellions around the country and eventually a new name for her: Bloody Mary.Anita's Notebook: Bloody Mary

 

3. Hell Hounds

 

I’m not even going to bother listing how man episodes Hell Hounds have been on, but my favorite was no doubt Crowley’s pet Hell Hound.

In Supernatural, Hell Hounds have black fur, have red eyes, they have a foul odor (not sure if its Sulfur), super strength and speed. Unlike Supernatural (so far) according to legend they can sometimes talk.

 

In some legends,  if you look in a Hell Hounds eyes three times or more you are sure to die. Hell Hounds usually guard entrances to other worlds (like Hell) and are mostly guard dogs (best guard dog ever, right?). If the country believes they are derived from fire, they have a fire like appearance.  A Hell Hounds howl is an omen of death, every time in Supernatural when they bark or howl someone dies right? Hell Hound sightings have been all over the world, mostly in the US and cemeteries. 

 

Hell Hounds are also called the Bearer of Death because whenever one sees a Hell Hound death follows. They are omens for death and most countries scared of them. Another one is Black Shuck.

 

Black Shuck or Old Shuck is the name given to a ghostly black dog said to roam the Norfolk, Essex, and Suffolk coastline of England. For centuries, locals have told tales of a large black dog with malevolent flaming red or green eyes. According to reports, the beast varies in size and stature from that of a large dog to the size of a horse. Sometimes Black Shuck has appeared headless, and at other times he appears to float on a carpet of mist. According to folklore, the spectre often haunts graveyards, sideroads, crossroads and dark forests.Wikipedia: Hell Hound

Supernatural: Fact vs Fiction

A lot of you may be able to tell my favorite show is Supernatural, this show deals with two brothers who hunters of the supernatural world but what truth behind these supernatural beings is there? Is there any fact? Or is it all fiction?

1. The Devils Trap

The devil’s trap was inspired by Key of Solomon or Clavicula Salomonis in Latin, which is a Grimoire or a book of magic.

Quote fromKey of Solomon:

SOLOMON, the Son of David, King of Israel, hath said that the beginning of our Key is to fear God, to adore Him, to honour Him with contrition of heart, to invoke Him 1 in all matters which we wish to undertake, and to operate with very great devotion, for thus God will lead us in the right way. When, therefore, thou shalt wish to acquire the knowledge of Magical Arts and Sciences, it is necessary to have prepared the order of hours and of days, and of the position of the Moon, without the operation of which thou canst effect nothing; but if thou observest them with diligence thou mayest easily and thoroughly arrive at the effect and end which thou desirest to attain.Key of Solomon

2. Exorcism’s

This one:

Exorcizamus te, omnis immundus spiritus

omnis satanica potestas, omnis incursio
infernalis adversarii, omnis legio,
omnis congregatio et secta diabolica.
Ergo draco maledicte
et omnis legio diabolica
adjuramus te.
Cessa decipere humanas creaturas,
eisque aeternae Perditionis venenum propinare.

Vade, Satana, inventor et magister
omnis fallaciae, hostis humanae salutis.
Humiliare sub potenti manu dei,
contremisce et effuge, invocato a
nobis sancto et terribili nomine,
quem inferi tremunt.

Ab insidiis diaboli, libera nos, Domine.
Ut Ecclesiam tuam secura tibi facias libertate servire
te rogamus, audi nos.
Ut inimicos sanctae Ecclesiae humiliare digneris,
te rogamus, audi nos.

Terribilis Deus de sanctuario suo.
Deus Israhel ipse truderit virtutem
et fortitudinem plebi Suae.
Benedictus deus. Gloria patri.

The first sentence is from a 1952 Roman Ritual from the Ritual Romanum and translates too:
“We cast you out, every unclean spirit, every satanic power, every onslaught of the infernal adversary, every diabolical group and sect…” this ritual continues with Jesus Christ and this ritual does not. It is said that some fans say Sam fixes it to be more like that.

In “Devil’s Trap,” the rest of this next line and more is mostly unintelligible – however, this is what was lifted in between “ergo” and “perditionis” (which begins the next part that Sam says clearly) from the Rituale Romanum online: draco maledicte et omnis legio diabolica adjuramus te per Deum + vivum, per Deum + verum, per Deum + sanctum, per Deum, qui sic dilexit mundum, ut Filium suum unigenitum daret, ut omnis, qui credit in eum, non pereat, sed habeat vitam aeternae (with everything in between that cut out and Sam maybe picking it up here) cessa decipere humanas creaturas, eisque aeternae… (because there was not time for Sam to say all of that; they must have edited a bit, and what Bobby says in the “Born Under A Bad Sign” version seems to support this way of editing the original Catholic ritual.Exorcism's

3. Ghosts

Ghost have been talked about since the 16th century, the word was derived from “gast” which is “a terrifying rage” so it is connecting to spirits turning into vengeful ones for staying too long on earth and not moving on. Ghosts can make themselves be heard just like in Supernatural with sounds, knocking stuff over or moving stuff.

Here is a picture I found of a ghost sighting:

any paranormalists pursue the concept of ghosts as proof of evidence of life after death. In the past, ghosts were purposeful – they remained on earth to avenge their death or to reveal information. That is rarely reported now. Other beliefs (not facts) about ghosts include the following: A violent or emotional death could trap the spirit of a dead person in the world of the living. Animals have a greater sensitivity to spirits and paranormal energy than humans. Graveyards may be paranormal hotspots because of the high emotion level and that they are liminal place between the worlds of the living and the dead. Historic buildings are often said to be haunted – mainly because of the cultural connotation of old houses having spirits that remain. Abandoned hospitals, asylums and prisons are said to be haunted due to the great emotional residue, pain, violence, and death that took place. Some ghosts may be sent “into the light” and made to leave. Ghost investigators will say ghosts are composed of energy that remains post-death. That energy influences or is associated in some way with electromagnetic fields. Paranormalists believe that ghosts feed off heat energy, batteries, electricity, electromagnetic fields or “earth energies”. Ghost FAQ

I believe in ghosts. There have been many haunted places in the US and other countries to confirm that there are people staying after they have passed on. Do salt and iron have effects on them? I don’t know but I do know many other believe in the afterlife and it gives them hope they’ll see their loved ones again. Should spirits stay? According to Supernatural, that is a big no.
