You are comparing abilities to your stereotyping of individuals, I get what you are aiming for. You aren't here to applaud anyone who discloses such
information. You are here to bash them because you yourself find superheroes and comic book people "geeks" and "dorky".
I can read you quite well my friend, and with that being said, I believe I will keep my secrets to myself. But on that note, I just wanted to let you
know that I do not indulge myself into your classified as "comic book geek" category. So you can leave that at the door.
I've been reading 'superhero' and sci-fi/action comics on-and-off since about 1974 and am still reading them now I'm in my mid 40s; so possibly before
you were born. I'm currently waiting on the end of Sweet Tooth and the Boys, still into Fables and Hellblazer &c but still read a lot of tights and
capes stuff: Fantastic Four/FF; various Avengers-related titles, Daredevil, the Watchmen prequels and so on. Don't read much in the way of DC stuff
though, unless it's a Vertigo title.
Some of my favourite films of the last couple of years have been the Batman reboot, the Thor and Avengers films but I thought the Captain America one
was bad. I wasn't keen on the Hulk films nor the Fantastic Four films though - I thought the latter films should have been set as a 60s period piece,
like the X-Men First Class, but more kitsch - as I expected a lot more and thought the Hulk's cgi was never really right until the Avengers film
(although I'd have preferred a grey Hulk). Silver Surfer and Galactus were wasted in the Fantastic Four film. I thought the Green Lantern film was
probably the biggest let-down of all though and at the same time the Daredevil film from a few years ago was under-rated.
I parted ways with Manga and anime in the early 90s though as if I wanted to see pictures of young girls in knickers I'd become a paedophile.
I played table-top RPGs on and off from about 1979 through to the late 1990s and played a large amount of different gaming systems: basic through to
expert through to advanced D&D; MERP, Legend of the 5 Rings, a Star Wars RPG, a superhero one I can't remember the name of, Deadlands, the Call of
Cthulhu version set in the 20s/30s blah blah blah.
My favourite computer game series are Warhammer 40k stuff. My favourite race to play are the Tau taking the Fist of Mont'Ka path as I can't get enough
of armoured space communists with no noses. I even used to paint figures too, but it became inordinately expensive and the older I got the more I've
had to prioritise a limited income.
You think I have a problem with superheroes, comics and geeks? I think your skillset needs some work, as does your ability to 'read people'.
