My name is Max & I am a DC addict! To answer in order:
- I am from & live in Yellow Springs, Ohio!
- A lot of stuff got me into comics & super hero characters. 80s cartoons like SuperFriends, Batman, Super Power Hour w/SHAZAM!, Spider-Man & his Amazing Friends, etc. My parents also got me a toy Batmobile with Batman, Robin & Joker figures. As I learned to read, comics were stocking stuffers at Xmas. I got hooked!
- My favorite hero is Batman, but a close second is the original Captain Marvel, AKA Shazam! A favorite villain is Black Adam, especially with all the cool stuff Geoff Johns did with him in JSA & since! He is one complex badass! But I love SO MANY DCU characters! It’s hard to narrow it down! Honorable mentions go to the Ted Kord Blue Beetle & Booster Gold!
- If I had to name one comic to show to non-comics readers, it’s Watchmen hands down. Batman the Animated Series for show & the recent SHAZAM! Movie for a good film.
- Perfect casting would be Jackie Earle Haley as Rorschach in the Watchmen film.
- Non-DC interests: I do like Marvel stuff, though haven’t read much modern stuff other than the amazing Patsy Walker AKA Hellcat series a few years back. I also love action figures & occasionally make dioramas for them & do photography. I also love cooking & work as a baker at a local restaurant.
- Do I accept pineapple on pizza?!? Hell yes! A local pizza joint Bentino’s does a mean Hawaiian Deluxe pizza with ham, pineapple, bell peppers, almonds, bacon & a hint of cinnamon! It’s amazing.
Spent the first 14 months of my DC Universe subscription not using the social community stuff, though always meant to—starting with this thread. I never did but my subscription just renewed & I want to participate in this New Year! So what’s up DCU? Nice to meetcha & Happy New Year!
