My family had a few cats during my youth, two of which were named off of X-men Jubilee and Storm by my sister. I thought it felt a little corny calling them superhero names so my brother and I simply ended up calling them "White Kitty" and "Black Kitty" because of their fur color. I told Bear and he said the X-men names were really cool and that I'm lame for not using them. Yes... He's probably right. =x
Almost all I know about Batman and Iron man is based on the television series' that aired in the '90s and the Batman movies. I thought they were some of the cooler American comic heroes at the time. I found it interesting how similar they were in that they're both millionaires that tried to hide their hero life and though they were superheroes, they didn't really have any super powers. I have to admit that though Iron Man was pretty cool and I tend to like Marvel heroes more than DC, Batman is way cooler to me, probably because of how much the first movie and animated series amazed me as a child and because of the fact that Batman is trained in old school martial arts and doesn't have to use such hardcore sci-fi-ish weapons. =)
In a time when many American cartoons revolved around the concept of "being for kids," filled with slapstick, wackiness, and cartoony adventures, Batman: The Animated Series was very different. It was often dark, serious, sometimes scary and even presented philosophical views and insights on humanity. It felt deeper than a lot of cartoons; like it wasn't meant just for kids but for a much broader audience to enjoy. Even most of the villains had a bit of humanity to them. I loved how most of them weren't doing bad to simply be bad but because they were doing what they believed in or because they're a product of circumstance. I was really disappointed in the later series when the villains were redesigned, making them look less human.
