Time for the Con...

Tomorrow starts the world's largest pop culture and comics convention, Comic Con. Editor's note: You know, like you saw on the OC. And, this year, I'm extra stoked because one of my students from my very first Middle School small group in California, Colton, came down to go with me. So, in honor of the start of what is sure to be nerdapalooza 2007, I've decided to compile my list of top 5 favorite comic book heroes. And, for the first time ever, I'm proud to welcome Colton as a guest blogger with his own list. So, without further adieu...

Josh's Top 5 Favorite Comic Book Heroes

5) Gambit/Wolverine I know, I know. I had to put them both in the number 5 spot. I couldn't decide. Both of these guys have some of the coolest mutant powers around. Gambit can charge any object with explosive energy and throw it at you like a grenade. Wolverine can smoke cigars and drink beer and look super sweet. Wait... Oh yeah, he has an indestructible metal skeleton and retractable razor sharp claws. And, both sport the requisite superhero 5 o'clock shadow...

4) Nightcrawler I've always thought that teleportation was one of the coolest powers to have. That, coupled with the fact that he leaves behind a "sulfuric" smell afterwards, makes me think that the pranking potential alone would make the blue skin and three fingers worth it...

3) Colossus This guy has always been my favorite X-man. I've always loved the transformation and I just think he looks cool! And, with her new fridge magnets, I think he and Alice would be great friends...

2) Captain America Cap has always had a special place in my heart. The sentinal of liberty was gunned down this year. But he will forever live on in our hearts. Stephen Colbert (lucky) was given his sheild as a gift...

1) Spider-man/Superman If you didn't know that these 2 would be tied for number 1, then you don't know me very well (or, you've never read my blog). Ever since I was a kid, these two have been on my underroos. Well, up until I stopped wearing underroos. Too bad Sam Raimi broke my heart...


Colton's Top 5 Favorite Comic Book Heroes

5) Daredevil He's blind and he still kicks the crap out of everyone. Plus, he got to make out with Jennifer Gardner: the hottest woman in Hollywood...

4) Storm She has a sweet mohawk, can control the weather, and can fly 300 miles an hour. So, she probably never has to use a hair dryer...

3) Sunfire The best friend a chain smoker could have. Unless there was a mutant who could turn himself into a huge cigarette... But then, he couldn't live in California...

2) Havok One of the most powerful mutants, he's Cyclops' brother. He wears black spandex, so he can blend in, and can make it glow in the dark when he wants, so he gets invited to a lot of college parties...

1) Iceman We're BFF and, when my drink is warm, he always comes through for me. Of course, breaking off a few of one's fingers and plopping them down into my Solo cup does tend to spoil one's birthday party...
