Favorite Fictional Heroes Countdown–Part 10 (#10-5)

And the countdown to my favorite fictional hero continues.  In today’s post, we have focus on just 6 characters, rather than 10, just to slow it down a bit as we approach the top.  Of these 6, 1 is female, and 5 are male. 4 are considered to be especially formidable hand-to-hand combatants.  2 were on the same superhero team together for years, and 2 were on another superhero team together for years.  One of each of those pairs is the same character, and his two teammates were also partners with each other for years.  Got all that?  Good, let’s go…

Maintenance Man

49th Year Bucket List

So, point of clarification:  I’m 48 years old currently, having just celebrated my birthday yesterday.  I’m not 49, but that this year is actually my 49th year of living.  When I celebrate my 49th birthday, that means I’m completing my 49th year, not starting it.

And I know, it’s not really a “bucket list” if the deadline isn’t the end of your life…when you “kick the bucket”.  Indeed, maybe it’d be better to call this a “49th Year To-Do List”.  But that’s catchy sounding, don’t you think?

So this is a list of things I’m hoping to have achieved by the time that me being able to say “I’m 48 years old” is cold and buried in the ground.  What do I want to have achieved / completed / accomplished by then?  That’s what we’re looking at here. Continue reading 49th Year Bucket List

Justice League

It wasn’t that long ago that the idea of going to see a big budget Justice League would have seemed like utter nonsense.  But now we live in that word, where the number of superhero films that we have all seen is growing exponentially, and they aren’t just about Superman or Batman, but now Superman and Batman.  And their friends.  Continue reading Justice League
