I’m curious about something.
How many of you came to the DC or Marvel universes initially through either the films, or animated series?
Did you fall in love with superheroes through comics, or was your first real exposure to them from other media?
And finally, specifically, does your love for a certain character or team stem in any way from film or animation, by which I mean, are you a Batman or X-men fan, for example, at least partially due to the films or cartoons?
This is for a reason…thanks!
I actually became a comics fan as an adult, after my then-boyfriend convinced me to watch the Brian Singer movies. I really enjoyed them (sure, they’re flawed, but I was fascinated by the world), and ended up reading Marvel as a result of that.
Cosplay played a part in my DC conversion: I dressed as Black Canary originally because the costume was easy to make and I wanted to dress up with my friends Psykitten Pow, LTC America et al. I picked up the GA/BC comic that was ongoing at the time to do research. And then I got TOTALLY hooked. Man, that was a great comic. :)
