The End…This is just a beginning.
Welcome. I recommend Picking up Dark Knights of Steel if you haven’t already. =)
Nice to meet you and welcome, @Jitsu!
I’m a little late to this party, but a late welcome is better than no welcome so…. Welcome! From your responses in this thread, it looks like our community is in good hands . Hope you drop by the Collector’s Corner area of the forums and check out what’s happening there.
As Janice says on Friends, “Oh. My. GOD!” you and I are kindred spirits in so many wonderful ways!
You are wise and I wish to subscribe to your Deep 13-sponsored newsletter.
Mystery Science Theater 3000 is my all-time favorite TV series (Mike tends to be my fav host, but I love all of them), while The Simpsons is second. I’ve loved both since I was a child.
Oh, Space Mutiny! That’s a great one, for sure. “Buck Manchest!”
A few of my fav episodes: Mitchell, Monster a Go-Go!, Godzilla vs. The Sea Monster, Beginning of the End, The Final Sacrifice, Final Justice, The Giant Spider Invasion, Reptilicus, Mac and Me, and what is quite possibly my all-time fav episode of the Mike era, Invasion of the Neptune Men.
“Can’t get enough of that Sugar Crisp!”
I also love the movie. “Hey, the floors look great!”
My favorite episode of The Simpsons is 22 Short Films About Springfield.
“You may purchase this charming Hamburglar adventure booklet. A child has already solved the puzzle, the answer is fries.”
Me too! I’ve been collecting 'em for 33 years, with 32 of those including DC product.
That’s pretty rad that you got first dibs on schtuff. Getting first dibs is most schway.
Hot dog, we’ve another similarity!
From the time I got into DC when I was 6, and until I was 22, Batman was my #1 with Superman being a very close second-favorite (as close as one could be without being tied for #1, TBH).
In 2006, Superman became tied with Batman as my #1 and then in 2007, he “officially” overtook Batman for the #1 spot, which is where he still is to this day and likely always will be.
Superman is my #1 favorite DC character and franchise, while also being my favorite fictional character. I love Superman, to put it mildly.
While I love all of the major DC heroes (of which, Booster Gold IS a part of that group, no matter what anyone else says ), Superman and Nightwing are the two I most heavily identify with, as I have strong personality traits (among other things) that are nearly to 100% identical to those that Messrs Kent and Grayson share.
Circling back to action figures, have you heard about McFarlane Toys’ upcoming figures for The Dark Knight Returns in their DC Multiverse line?
If not, the series will include Batman, Robin, Joker and Superman. When you buy all four, you can build Batman’s horse! Here’s a promo shot of the whole affair:
Currently available from McFarlane on the TDKR front is this beefy buckaroo:
As for my fav series and story, I don’t know that I can pick one definitive favorite of each, but three of my absolute all-time favorite series are:
- The Authority
- Divine Right: The Adventures of Max Faraday (aka the Jim Lee masterpiece most aren’t aware of)
As for favorite stories, offhand I would go with:
- The Death and Return of Superman. Its riveting, heart-breaking and triumphantly entertaining.
- Crisis on Infinite Earths. The Epic of Epics. DC’s first major event mini-series is still the best.
- Hush. My favorite Batman story, and one that made me go from being a Jim Lee admirer to a Jim Lee FAN. He’s my absolute all-time favorite comic artist and always will be.
I love all of the things you said! My favorite anime series are:
- Cowboy Bebop
- Neon Genesis Evangelion
- Outlaw Star
Runner-up: Mobile Suit Gundam: The 08th MS Team.
My fav anime movies are:
- Ghost in the Shell
- Ninja Scroll
Runner-up: Robot Carnival.
I’ve got high hopes for the LA Cowboy Bebop. Most LA anime adaptations have stunk (especially Dragonball: Evolution), but we’ll see what’s cookin’ on the Bebop, come this Friday!
admits that he loves bell peppers and beef, especially when its lean on the peppers and heavy on the beef
Ermagash! My favorite movie is The Return of the King!
Gravy is indeed best-suited for drizzling atop all manners of nummy nom-nom. While I joke about drinking gravy, I’ve never actually done it.
However! If another Fan Event comes about and I was in attendance, I might be persuaded to take a swig from a WB-purchased can.
It can be the entirety of the Joes and 'Formers, if you like.
As an ardent G.I. Joe guy since childhood, I know that they’d kick the metal cabooses of those who hail from Cybertron.
If nothing else, they’d just fry 'em with a giant EMP device because the Joes always have giant, impractical devices on-hand. Fact.
Count on it, Ace!
My current favorites (which tend to change, in some cases) in the animated DC ecosphere:
Movie: A tie between Batman: Mask of the Phantasm and Superman/Batman: Apocalypse. The Superman/Batman duology is my favorite of the direct-to-video animated affairs, but Mask of the Phantasm was the first animated DC movie for the big screen and ties into the all-time best Batman adaptation (animated or otherwise) while also being a childhood fav.
TV series: From the DCAU, Justice League Unlimited. Outside of the DCAU…it’s a toss-up between Young Justice, the final season of Super Friends (when the show was renamed The Super Powers Team: Galactic Guardians) and Ruby Spears Superman, which just doesn’t get the love that it absolutely deserves.
I love TDK Trilogy.
Rises is a little long in the tooth and wonky at times, but overall, the series is the second-best movie trilogy of the 21st century, so far (after the LOTR Trilogy, natch).
My absolute, all-time favorite live-action DC movie is Superman: The Movie. I like and love most of the other live-action DC movies fine (with the exception of Catwoman), but Superman: The Movie is pure cinematic MAGIC .
It did, it really did! You and I seem to be cut from the same cloth in many respects, so I’m confident we’ll be DCUI buddies in a Superman and Batman kind-of way.
Just don’t try your Kryptonite ring on me, m’kay? Kryptonite doesn’t work on this guy who can also see through lead.
Sorry for the late welcome, just saw this, but welcome aboard and look forward to seeing what is to come. One question pizza, pineapple or not?
That’s all I need to hear. Welcome aboard!!
@Jitsu Thank you for your warm & thoughtful intro! Welcome! I’m fairly new to the community myself and I’m enjoying it so far! All the best wishes for your success!
Welcome to DCUI @Jitsu!
I got it when it released, and LOVED it. It’s a perfect overlap of my interests and tastes!
Hello and Welcome to this awesome™ community.
Hi, Jitsu and welcome to the Community! I’m excited to have you joining us.
@Jitsu Is there a story behind the name?
Great question! There is, but it’s not all that amazing: I did JiuJitsu for a brief period some years ago, before focusing more on boxing. I kinda liked how it sounded as my online name, and it eventually stuck!
Playing the Uno Reverse card here–is there a story behind yours?
I took jiu jitsu for a year- still love following fighters who are masters at it like Charles Oliviera or Kron Gracie, or Demian Maia, Frank Mir, Jacare Souza, or Rafael Lovato Jr. in years past.
Do you have a favorite boxer? I’m a huge Muhammad Ali fan and love watching Vasily Lomachenko and Naoya Inoue.
Same sort of not really interesting story behind mine- my favorite DC villain of all time is the Joker, but I assumed there were probably already 100 Jokers on here. So I went with one of my favorite Superman the Animated Series villains.
Earlier this year, I started making custom action figures so the name fit better than I had originally intended
