Nerd, Super Hero Studies

Super Hero Studies #1: Wildcat

Hey there people! J. here. Lately I’ve noticed more and more often, that the general public get very stuck in their ways when it comes to superheroes and tend to know very little about characters besides the big names of their chosen fandom. Keeping that in mind, I thought it would be a good idea to have a little “study session” of some lesser known heroes.

Today’s hero will be…

Wildcat! Wildcat is the alias of a boxer named Ted Grant who uses his bad ass boxing skills to take down baddies while dressed as a giant cat. He first appeared in Sensation Comics #1 in January of 1942, and has been kicking ass and taking names ever since. A member of the Justice Society, he has trained numerous other heroes in the art of boxing such as Batman, Batgirl, Catwoman, Black Canary, and superman. In addition to his boxing prowess (along with his skill in Muay Thai, Capoeira, Krav Maga and Hapkido) he also has the ability to resurrect himself (9 times of course), decelerated aging, and of course, he can see in the dark. Oh and did I mention he drives a motorcycle? Check out Wildcat!

Thank you for taking the time to read this! If you’d like more superhero studies, or have ideas for other blog posts, let me know in the comments!

See you next time

Poor Ice King

I’ve liked adventure time for a long time but recently I decided to binge-watch the entire series because I know there is a massive amount of episodes I haven’t seen. The more I watch this show, the more I like it. I am astounded by how brilliant this show can be at times, but there’s one character that I’ve really grown to appreciate. Ice King is one of the most complex, sympathetic villains I’ve encountered in fiction. The episode where he dresses up as a horse to spy on Finn and Jake was especially poignant in my opinion. He wanted to find out how to be happy.. thanks for the feels Adventure time. Keep it up.

First Post

Hello readers! I’m J. and I am a nerd. My intention behind making this blog is to have an outlet for my nerdiness. You can expect random anecdotes about nerdy things, questions or thoughts I might have, and possibly reviews of things like comic books, video games, movies etc. What I would like to hear from the people out there is what kind of things you would like to discuss? The upcoming DC movies? (I am beyond stoked for Batman V Superman!) Star Wars? I’d love to give my thoughts about any topic you have in mind 🙂

I would love to hear from you!
