Apparently I wrote up a nice Thursday thread and never hit the submit button. I skip through all the weather talk and go straight to the...

TOTD - In honor of the Norse god and comic book superhero (and because I drew a blank for a topic) today would be a good day to mention what your favorite comic book character or superhero was when you were growing up. I started out liking Archie but whiched to Dracula. I loved this comic book. I was at the store across the street as soon as a new issue came out. I was a fan of the monster comic books like Vampirella and Swamp Thing, but Dracula was my favorite. What about you? Which character or comic book did you like to read?

Iron Man and the X-men.

The Avengers were cool too and at one point I had a pretty decent Moon Knight collection.
My favorite though was Deathlok!

Comic books? I don't think I've ever even glanced at one.

I don't know. I suggest you title next week's thread "Woden's Day" and make it about shoe shopping though.:p

TOTD - well it's certainly NOT Dr. Manhattan (Just saw Watchmen). Although the ladies would adore him. TOTAL sausagefest! I was always a big Avengers fan. Ironman is super cool terrific!
