Are comic books popular where you live, too?
Honestly, I'd have no idea. I find comic books difficult to read and accordingly have no interest in them. To me ... well, I think of all this Batman and Spiderman stuff as being on the same level as Thomas The Tank Engine or Road Runner or Bugs Bunny. After all, those cartoons were all played together on children's morning programming when I was little.

Though now I'd like to see somebody make a darker Thomas The Tank targeted at an older audience.

I can see where you're coming from, although I think great comics are at a higher level of entertainment than cartoons, even I fucking love me some Looney Toons. No harm done.

I'm disturbe there were enough train destruction scenes in Thomas to make such a startling video

And I watched that with my little brother, it finished and he turned to me and said "That wasn't as happy as I thought it would be."

excellent. I will have to check those out sometime. I'll bet I can remember details from nearly every episode.

I loved the Spidey, Batman, and X-Men cartoons as a kid. I can still hum the X-Men theme.
Ryan Reynolds = bad news.

But yeah those three cartoons were a big part of my after-school education as a youngster. I loved all three of those shows very much.

Yeah, I feel sorry for kids today. Children's programming just looks like shit.

Besides Thomas, Road Runner was my favourite.

I mean, even if it is, I'm not sure what you're trying to prove to me, since I'm known to use "mythology" pejoratively. See: my discussions of the Old Testament.
