Deadpool

Comixplanations – Where to start reading Deadpool!

Deadpool IIHello interweb, Nate here! So this is a post that I decided I want to take a crack at because I really haven’t done any type of reading recommendations type post and I’ve been reading quite a lot of Deadpool comics since his movie was announced a few years ago. So because I’ve read so many Deadpool comics and he has quickly became one of my absolute favorite characters. Since I’ve read so much of his comics and he’s quickly becoming one of Marvel’s most popular characters, I thought maybe I could help you guys find fun Deadpool stories if you guys were at all interesting. So with that said, let’s begin! (more…)

Hello interweb, Nate here.  So sorry about how 90’cember is going.  I thought I’d be able to get the posts out weekly for December but obviously that’s not the case.  I will try to get the remaining three 90’cember posts posted but it will end up stretching to January; although I won’t let it get to February.  With that aside, 2016 is turning out to be a fantastic year for superhero comic book movies so I thought I’d count down the 5 films I’m most excited for!

What is an Antihero?

Hello interweb, Nate here.  So this question has been bugging me for quite some time now: what is an antihero?  Now based upon my understanding of the term, an antihero is a character who does villainous things for good intentions.  The best example is the Punisher who’s main shtick is to go around and kill bad guys.  Killing is obviously a villainous trait and most heroes (such as Spider-man, Batman, and Superman [well, when he’s not being directed by Zack Snyder]) refuse to do it, but since he’s doing it to protect the innocent from murderers and thieves he’s not considered a villain; thus he’s an antihero.  Many character easily fit this description such as Deadpool, Deathstroke (yes he’s usually shown as a villain but because he’s a mercenary he’s willing to help the good guys if they pay him enough.  Which is rare but it has happened before.), Spawn, Catwoman, etc. but there are a few characters that people have described as an antihero that has confused me in the past and that’s what I’m mostly curious about here.
