Our story begins on a hot summer afternoon in Greystone City. A black sedan roars down the street, hurtling towards a busy intersection of innocent pedestrians! Is there no one that can stop this out of control getaway car?
This looks like a job… (cue dramatic superhero music) for an unknown, mediocre blogger!
And that’s how you make an entrance… (Wait, you’re still reading? Huh, never thought I’d make it this far. Keep going! The next paragraph gets even better).
Okay, so maybe I went a little bit over the top with the intro. But you have to admit, the wave of superhero stuff that has crashed over our society in the past few decades is pretty cool! At least I think it’s pretty cool, and I’m guessing you do too if you’re reading this blog.
Let’s take a step back, I want to tell you a little bit about myself. My name is Jordan. I’m a 21 year old college student and comic book junkie. I know what you’re thinking. Yes, I did have Spiderman pajamas equip with built-in armpit webs as a child.
In fact, I had a lot of cool superhero stuff as a child. Hand-painted murals of comic book characters in my bedroom, an extensive collection of action figures, a motorized Batmobile… The list is virtually endless. I was raised on comics. And that’s probably because my dad is just as big comic book nerd as I am.
You see, he grew up during a time when you could buy a stack of comic books for a dollar. He’s got a collection of thousands of vintage comic books in his basement. It’s pretty impressive.
I’m growing up during a time when anyone with a computer and some free time can publish his/her unfiltered brain-leakage on the internet. Unfiltered brain-leakage plus an unnatural superhero fetish equals my new blog, Cure for Kryptonite!
*Disclaimer: I am not a comic book expert. I have never operated a comic book shop, nor worked on producing any professional comic books. I’m just an average guy who likes comics. So there’s a high probability that I’m going to get some facts mixed up, or you’ll disagree with some of my opinions. But, hey, that’s what the first amendment is all about! This must be what Captain America was talking about…
