David Bruce is a dad. Over time and through various careers, he has been a restaurant manager, a k benefits coordinator, an Airman in the United States Air Force, a photographer, a warehouse worker, an author, and a student. Regardless of what type of hat he has worn, though, it is his career as a father that makes him most proud. David loves photography, music, writing, and literature, believing that these forms of media are a piece of history and a mirror to our society. Unlike most other superheroes, who assume a fictitious costumed identity in order to fight crime, Peter Parker did the reverse.
By assuming that identity, by becoming another person, Peter actually sheds his worries, doubt and self-consciousness. By becoming Spider-Man, Peter Parker becomes himself. I could be comfortable in myself, and be proud of myself. On top of that, the example that superheroes gave me as a child — these selfless, heroic figures who sacrificed their lives for the good of others — has never ceased to inspire me.
Giving blood, working at jobs that support the less fortunate, showing understanding to people when they need it the most, these are the things I care about the most deeply. As I said before, I was lucky enough to be born into an amazingly strong, close-knit family. I was born into a generation that grew up with superheroes, and the kids that read comic books, fantasy, horror and science fiction novels are now at the forefront of the entertainment industry. See, this is the reason that superheroes are so huge these days. This is why they matter. On one hand, they are the contemporary equivalents of ancient mythological gods.

But on the other hand, since Stan Lee and his league of Marvel artists revolutionized the genre in the s, superheroes are also flawed human beings, real people who must overcome their problems so that the world can remain safe from alien invasions, criminal masterminds and extradimensional demons. Sure, Spider-Man is the quiet, self-conscious outsider who opens up and dedicates himself to helping others.
But Batman is the intense, focused intellectual with near-superhuman devotion toward a single goal.
Iron Man is the inventor, the clever scientist, the mechanic who loves creating new things, taking them apart and seeing how they fit back together. Bruce Banner is the pent-up, repressed victim of a painful childhood who finally releases himself in a torrential green wave of emotion. The X-Men are the repressed minorities of the world, the victims of prejudice and unfair judgment, people who instead of lashing out, fight for peaceful coexistence with the same ones who judge them so harshly.
Daredevil is the victim of a disability, who instead of allowing that disability to rule his life, instead learns to accept it and uses it to make himself a better person. Superheroes have taken ahold of society because they hold a truly universal appeal. They appeal to the children they inspire, or the child inside us that thrills at their colorful adventures and hijinks. They appeal to adults, as their stories become a vehicle for the discussion of important social issues, problems and moral debates.
They also bring us back, make us think, and inspire us to lead better lives. Modern myths?

Living legends? Inspirations of both children and adults?
Great, edgy stories? Yes, all that and more. For those who prefer white backgrounds, this post also appears on Medium.
Like this: Like Loading Until now. There is no way that any of the senior officers would endanger their lives by going on non-diplomatic away missions. It is fairly unique - I can't imagine any major tv organisation making and showing a series like this in prime time again. Firefly is in the good old tradition of Star Trek and much pulp fiction by being a western in space! Let's get down to the classics here - LEXX - what the hell was this show about?
They're never going to do otherwise concerning this, and the reasons are obvious. It's always show about a group of maybe 6 people -tops. Don't hold your breath for a show about a crew of several hundred people in which you actually feature all the people beyond lip service. Not going to happen.

Get over this one. As reported previously, one of the co-writers is the person responsible? The ridiculous subplots involving the romantic lives of the individual cast members--especially O'Brien, the transporter chief. Even after the Federation supposedly went on war footing against the Borg, they didn't turf out the families. Never cared much for Riker or the empath either though Mirina Sirtis was darn cute.
Data bored me and I kept hoping they would kill off the kid Crusher in a spectacularly gory fashion. Saw about four episodes of "Voyager" and one of "Enterprise" and, man, that was enough for me. I think the "Away Team" was a method of dealing with complaints leveled against the early "Trek" that the Federation would never allow a Captain to risk himself on a tricky mission and so there would be a special team assembled for such things, under a lower-ranking officer.
This is the most I've talked about "Trek" in years. I might be guilty of that "eternal year old" mentality I criticized on a different thread OK, I cant' talk about much of the stuff listed in this thread, because I only have "free TV" and some of it never made the airwaves here. It actually had an ongoing plot and a realist view of what colonising an other planet might be like. A pity it never went beyond episode 22 and we only got 12 shown here! I am still hoping.
Message 38 I think we have the same cable TV plan--as in none. I get CBC and the reception is pretty good and CTV, which comes in better under certain atmospheric conditions or if a comet happens to be passing by. Can't help you with "Earth 2" at all. Wasn't it originally a Roddenberry concept? My VHS tapes are all wearing out--some of them nearing 20 years old. Some of the stuff I can let go but a few items can't be found anywhere. Julie Taymor's adaptation of the Poe story "Hop Frog" for instance. Never been in circulation, as far as I know. Tried to find it for my wife she's a huge Taymor fan but it's a no go.
So our crappy version stays, for as long as it lasts Apparently the franchise, with the people creatively in charge, reached the exhaustion point. So our crappy version stays, for as long as it lasts. I'm surprised that people here are not bigger fans of Firefly. I find it to be almost without flaw, and it would be my pick for best science fiction show--yes, I'll say "ever.
Though, I'm not sure if it counts as science fiction. The final episode was called "Fall Out," not "dem bones," I think. Is Idea really still alive? If so, what possible explanation can there be for the public story of his alleged death? The answers are revealed in this dramatic series finale.
Eroica has to rescue Iron Klaus from the KGB while trying to regain control of his newly purchased monastery. Despondent, he finds himself in Japan where, through the help of Shirayuki, he becomes the newest singing sensation! Is she really going to have to be saved from Heaven by the Prince of Hell?

His siblings Benjamin and Seth share premonitions of the disaster, and travel to Kiev to stop him. Shingo discovers some of the reasons Nine is so cold and aloof, including the genesis of the falling out between Nine and Agent That secret goes back to their first days together fighting the Russian mafia and learning what it truly takes to be an Ultimate Blue agent. Before she left her rural village to go to school in the big city, 6-year-old Shinobu told her friend Saizou to grow up strong so he could someday come and protect her.
But when a male exchange student comes to the school, it turns out to be none other than Saizou! Saizou wants to be more than a protector to his old friend — but he may have a rival. His goal: unleash the memories of the ancient monk Hotsuma, locked deep inside Takeru's head.
