heroes are among us

Last night, I watched The Avengers for the first time.

At first, I was depressed when I realized that Batman couldn't be an Avenger because he isn't from Marvel comics. But I got over it. Eventually.

Actually, I didn't give Batman a second thought once the movie started. Sometimes, I'm not a very faithful fan.

Iron Man redeemed himself in my eyes (after  him being such a jerk on the Iron Man movies). Plus, he was good comedy relief.

Captain America was as awesome as ever.

Thor grew on me...a little.

Hulk was big. And green.

Black Widow had some very cool moves. One of my favorite scenes was when she bashed her way out of an interrogation session...while tied to a chair.

Hawkeye was very cool. It wasn't his fault that he was working for the bad guy for the first three quarters of the movie.

After watching a superhero movie, does anyone find themselves silently wishing that there really were superheroes? I was thinking about that last night. And I was reminded of something.

We do have heroes in this world...all around us, every day. Maybe they don't have super powers. But they have courage. Conviction. Strong spirits. Resolve.

You see, a true hero never has his life taken. He chooses to lay it down for the good of others.

Keep your eyes open. They are among us.

I love this movie! I'm a super addict, I really am.

Batman is part of the Justice League of America, and I think they have plans to make a JLA movie at some point. But they have to do more individual DC character movies before they can do the combined movie...

I'm glad you liked it! :)

Son Michael, who works at Atomic Fiction doing animation and special effects did some of the train scene in the movie when the black widow was fighting the Russians. He had to change the markings on the trains to Russian and on one of the cars he put my name and birthday in Russian. Unfortunately they sped up the train so fast you cannot see it. He also worked on the first Ironman (did the rocket launch out of his wrist that blew up the tank in one of the first parts of the movie and trailer). We see a lot of adventure/action movies and stay to watch the credits to see his name. Lots of fun. Waiting for the next one :)

I think they are superheroes among us. Sometimes they are blend so well into the personal landscape that we don't know who there are or that they are they. They can be Fathers, Mothers, people who care, people do anonymous service..They could be you...they could be me.

I love superheroes, and sometimes wish they were real too. Then I remember that where there is a superhero, there is usually an evil villian.
