Why is Hawkeye so unmarketable? I see so much stuff for Cap, Iron Man, Hulk, even Black Widow…but virtually NOTHING for Hawkeye…Why is this???
but still no Clint. Really?
These guys are hilarious. They need viewers though. Enjoy:)

Whenever I hear Cap ask Tony “big man in a suit of armor, take that away and What are you?” I keep thinking Tony is gonna say “NAKED”!!!
Does anyone else notice the irony in this?

that people would stop with all of the gay stuff about Captain America and Iron Man. Neither of them are at all gay, so please stop. Its really disgusting and really immature. If you dream about it, keep it to yourself. Thanks

So I was sitting at church sunday watching the younger kids play around, imitating Superman and Batman, and one thought kept reoccurring in my head, “man, these kids really look up to comic book superheroes.” I started wondering if it was a positive or negative thing that these kids looked up to these fictional heroes. On one hand, They teach kids to live above the influences of normal day America, to be the best they can be. The word HERO means “ A person who, in the opinions of others, has heroic qualities or has performed a heroic act and is regarded as a model or ideal”. So in aspect, you could consider those superheroes you grew up reading and loved dearly to be good role models. Some people hold the argument that Superheroes aren’t fit to be looked up to in such high regards. Their main reasoning is that since these are only fictional characters, your children should have more realistic choices for people that they look up to. My own personal opinion is that these heros do provide good role models and should be looked up to positively. My thinking is that they provide an escape for children who don’t have the “ideal” family, their moral code is unwavering no matter how tough the adversity appears, and that they’re always there to stand up for those who can’t protect themselves. Heros like Batman, Superman, Captain America, and Iron Man(just to name a few) are heros, that even to this day, I look up to. And Im 21. These are some of the people that I try to resemble, even though they might only be fictional.
Let’s say we have an eight year old boy whose father is an alcoholic and abusive and his mother, though she might try her best, just can’t shake the burden that she holds from her husbands unfortunate behavior. In todays society, is there anyone that should be called a good role model? I can only think of 2 or 3 good men that can truly be looked up to with such high regards. But for the most part, with such deception and pain going on in everyday America, there really aren’t any decent role models. So who is there to turn to for these young boys and girls, so that they don’t end up making foolish mistakes. Why not look up to these fictional heros? While they might be only fictional, the ideals they stand up for aren’t. I know, personally, that I would want my future kids to hold to the same standards that these heros give us. I have a friend, whose name I won’t publicize, that didn’t have a great, or even good, household as a child and his escape from the problems of reality were these same heros that I sit here and read about so nonchalantly. So yes, it is possible for these fictional heros to be a good escape for the child that comes from a broken home.
One of the problems with people these days is not the lack of good men, but the lack of men who are willing to hold true to their moral codes, no matter what odds are thrown at them. Like I said earlier, with the amount of deception and other demeaning qualities that are so common in todays world, I can see how it would be rough for anyone to truly hold on to a good moral code. That right there is another reason why Superheroes should be looked up to as good role models. Take Batman for instance. While he might fight crime, he refuses to kill anyone, no matter how much evil they have committed. Another good example is Superman. He has all these abilities that basically allow him to do whatever he wants, yet he plays it completely clean. He could take over the entire globe if he wanted to, yet he still decides to be the hero everyone looks up too, even fellow heros. These morals, some like perseverance, setting examples, doing the right thing, being the man, etc, are what make these men who they are and why people can’t help but love them. With their unbreakable moral codes, it’s no surprise that kids should be able to look up to these heros. I know I would want my kids to. Maybe one day, more kids will catch one and stick to a good, positive moral code all their own.
My entire life, I’ve always been picked on for being much smaller than all the other guys my age, and thought of to be basically helpless. That right there will lead me to my 3rd point, that these heros will always be around to stand up for those who can’t stand up for themselves, can’t protect themselves. The best example I have for this topic is Steve Rogers, AKA Captain America. His origin is that of the very topic I speak of, the little man who can’t protect himself. For the majority of his life pre-freeze, he was much smaller than literally everyone remotely close to his age. Before he met the doctor that gave him a chance to become the “perfect” soldier, the military wasn’t even giving Steve a chance due to his size and number of medical problems. Yet he didn’t give on joining, and after he became the perfect soldier, he was a staple for my topic. He always fought for the little people, no matter what his original objective was. Thats something the fictional heros will always teach us, not to be self centered, but to always stand up for those who can’t do it for themselves. I appreciate my friends who did it for me back in my younger years, and it’s something I will always do for those who are in the shoes that I once wore, whether I know that person or not. Captain America taught me that, as has so many other superheroes.
My reasons are quite self explanatory if I do say so myself. Whether it’s an escape, just being true to the moral code you live by, or protecting those who can’t themselves. Being a god guy isn’t always easy, but for certain, it is the right thing. If I want my kids to grow up and act like anybody, it’s one of these heros. Not the crime fighting part, but the ideals they stand for. Those are what make heros what they are. Not just strong people fighting crime, but good men doing what is right. Those, my friends, are role models.
