Superheroes

As a movie addict, I love watching movies.
Superhero movies are a source of delight and there were times during childhood where I do emulate some of them and with a towel or blanket at my back, I would always pretend that I could FLY.
I loved watching movie marathons or if it is shown in theatre, I do my best to watch. If there is a TV version, I also tries to folllow.

Why are we attracted to superheroes? From childhood to the present I have been amazed the powers of Batman, Superman, Spiderman, and several others. As the fan base indicates, children, and many adults, continue to be captivated by superheroes. The superheroes are shown t be just an ordinary or simple individual until they unleash their powers and they all have some waterloo.
Superman as the reporter, Clark Kent who is affected by the kryptonite, Spiderman was Peter Parker, a photographer who had been bullied in high school and Bruce Wayne or Batman is a rich man who is out to avenge. Thus the audience identify themselves with those characters, one who is simple could be in front if only they have the super powers.

To be a family member, close friend , neighbor or love interest if a super hero is a big curse since the villain will be after you.
But that’s what movies are all about.

amongst all superhero movies, my favorites are the following

Danny Segren, The Electric Company (1974)
Nicholas Hammond, The Amazing Spider-Man TV series (1977–1979)
Tobey Maguire, Spider-Man (2002), Spider-Man 2 (2004), Spider-Man 3 (2007)
Andrew Garfield, The Amazing Spider-Man (2012)

The best Spiderman for me is Tobey Maguire since his version has romance and more heart.

Kirk Alyn, Superman (1948), Atom Man vs. Superman (1950)
Joel Nestler, Adventures of Superman (1952–1958) (as teenaged Clark Kent)
George Reeves, Superman And The Mole Men (1951), Adventures of Superman (1952–1958)
Johnny Rockwell, The Adventures of Superboy (1961)(as Superboy)
David Wilson, It’s A Bird, It’s A Plane, It’s Superman TV special (1975)
Jeff East, Superman (1978)(as young Clark Kent)
Christopher Reeve, Superman (1978), Superman II (1980), Superman III (1983), Superman IV: The Quest for Peace (1987)
John Haymes Newton, Superboy (1988–1989) (as Superboy)
Gerard Christopher, Superboy (1989–1992) (as Superboy)
Ron Ely, (Two-part episode of the Superboy TV series in 1991)
Dean Cain, Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman (1993–1997)
Tom Welling, Smallville (2001–2011)
Stephan Bender, Superman Returns (2006)
Brandon Routh, Superman Returns (2006)
Henry Cavill, Man of Steel (2013)

Tom Welling as Superman in SMALLVILLE, a TV version is my favorite since it was a teen version with romance, friendship and love for the family were shown and of course action.

Lewis Wilson, Batman (1943)
Robert Lowery, Batman and Robin (1949)
Adam West, Batman (1966–1968), Batman (1966), Legends of the Superheroes (1979)
Michael Keaton, Batman (1989), Batman Returns (1992)
Val Kilmer, Batman Forever (1995)
George Clooney, Batman and Robin (1997)
Bruce Thomas, Batman OnStar (2000–2002), Birds of Prey (2002)
Christian Bale, Batman Begins (2005), The Dark Knight (2008), The Dark Knight Rises (2012)

Michael Keaton was my childhood Batman so I consider his version as my favorite.
