Who’s Your Favorite Marvel Heroine?

The MCU may have an abundance of awesome male heroes but over the years there has also been a rise of incredible heroines who manage to steal the show simply by their commanding presence. But which of these fascinating, crime-stopping, alien-annihilating ladies is your favorite? Here’s the list.

Mantis

Mantis is extremely lovable because of her sweet and innocent personality. She’s played a smaller role than most of these other heroines but her presence is undeniable and she is an asset to the team.

Nebula

Nebula hasn’t had the easiest journey but she has found a way to endure. She fought by Ronan’s side in Guardians of the Galaxy and after being reunited with her beloved sister she turned down a different path; one of revenge and redemption. How her journey will end, no one knows, but she will play an integral role in the fight against Thanos.

Darth Vader or Kylo Ren: Who’s Your Favorite?

It’s Sunday and that means it’s time for another weekly segment of Who’s Your Favorite? Last week’s segment was a fun one as I asked all of you who your favorite Justice League hero is? This week I’m heading back to a galaxy far, far away and giving you another fun topic; Darth Vader versus Kylo Ren. Both of these characters have delighted us, scared us, and provided their respective trilogies complex and engaging storylines that keep us coming back for more. And that’s why I made them the topic of this week’s segment. Enjoy!

Darth Vader

Darth Vader has had quite the journey. As a young man, he was an accomplished Jedi Knight who was believed to be the Chosen One who would bring peace back to the galaxy. But Palpatine had another plan in mind.

He used Anakin’s deepest, darkest fears against him and turned him into the heavy-breathing, lightsaber-wielding, masked-cyborg, Darth Vader.

Who’s Your Favorite Justice League Character?

Another fun week has passed and for those of you who celebrate Thanksgiving, it has been quite the holiday week as well. And now it’s time for another fun segment of Who’s Your Favorite? For the last two weeks I have been asking you who your favorite Marvel hero or villain was but this week I’m changing superhero franchises and heading to DC Comics. And as you can see from this post’s title, it’s all about the Justice League. So, with no further delay, let me present to you the Justice League.

Flash

After surviving being struck by lightning Barry Allen obtained superhuman abilities that made him the fastest human being on Earth. This power would become a key aspect in serving the Justice League, as his electric abilities helped bring Superman back to life and that would ultimately be the one thing that would defeat Steppenwolf.

Who’s Your Favorite Marvel Villain?

The week has passed and that means it’s time for another weekly Who’s Your Favorite segment. Last week I asked you all who was your favorite Marvel hero and you all made sure your voices were heard as you shared your thoughts and praises of Marvel’s superheroes. So, this week I’m excited to see which Marvel villain is the one you happen to enjoy the most. Here they are.

Ronan the Accuser

Ronan the Accuser, a deranged Kree terrorist whose despisal against Xandarians led him on a path of revenge, of course, aided by Thanos. This is an interesting storyline because as we can see from Captain Marvel‘s teaser there was a time when he wasn’t the crazed warrior we see in Guardians of the Galaxy. So what happened in that timespan? Thankfully we’ll soon get some answers.

General “Thunderbolt” Ross

General “Thunderbolt” Ross was an acclaimed soldier of the US Army but his greed for power led him to become the abomination you see in the picture above. He had an awful fate. 😦

Malekith

To be honest, I don’t remember Malekith’s motivations very well so I’m going to keep this short. Malekith was the leader of the Dark Elves and his quest to dominate the galaxy (or something like that) led him on a collision course with the mighty Thor.

Who’s Your Favorite Marvel Hero?

One of my first segments of Who’s Your Favorite was Who’s Your Favorite Marvel Heroine? Well, it’s time for the male heroes’ turn and there are many of them. There are a wizard and a radioactive spider-ling. An Iron Suit-wearing-billionaire and a patriotic super soldier. A King with a catsuit of vibranium and a God of thunder. The list goes on and on. And that’s why they’re the topic of this week’s Who’s Your Favorite? Enjoy.

Doctor Strange

Doctor Stephen Strange wasn’t the exact superhero type. He was obnoxious, self-centered, and egotistical. Those don’t exactly seem like the traits of an Avenger. But after losing the function of his hands in a horrendous car accident he would become one of the greatest heroes in the world.

War Machine

Colonel Rhodes is a soldier and so it’s no surprise that he would do anything in his power to protect those from harm. Even after a frightening injury he still was willing to suit up and face Thanos’s forces knowing there could be lethal consequences.

What’s Your Favorite ‘Star Wars’ Love Story?

Last week on this weekly segment of Who’s Your Favorite? the topic was about Marvel’s love stories and so it only seems right that this week’s segment focuses on another incredible franchise’s love stories; Star Wars. There are a lot of enjoyable elements to Star Wars but for those who love a good romance, this franchise has that too. So, on that note, let me list these memorable love stories.

Han and Qi’ra

Han, as a young man, was madly in love with his fellow Corellian sweetheart, Qi’ra but this romance was not to last. Qi’ra moved on and became loyal to the Crimson Dawn, eventually leaving Han and ending their relationship. It was a shocking moment for Han and it would be a turning point in his young life.

What’s Your Favorite Marvel Love Story?

Love is a powerful thing. It mends hearts, brings people together, provides happiness to even the most sorrowful, and it is a beautiful thing to observe. Love stories are some of my favorite movie storylines and superhero films always provide a good love story. So, on that note, this is the topic of today’s Who’s Your Favorite? I hope you enjoy.

Vision and Scarlet Witch

While this romance was doomed from the beginning it still is a beautiful relationship nonetheless. Vision, an android looking for purpose and understanding in the world, found love as his relationship with Wanda Maximoff grew. And Wanda, who lost her brother in the Battle of Sokovia, was also trying to find her place among her fellow Avengers. Vision helped fill that void that she possessed and it wasn’t long before her friendship grew into something more.

It’s a shame that we weren’t able to see more with them as a couple but then again, who knows what the future holds.

T’Challa and Nakia

A simple yet perfect relationship. Nakia, as an independent woman, didn’t let her past relationship with T’Challa hold her down to remaining in Wakanda as a Wakandan housewife for the rest of her life. And that is what is so beautiful about this relationship. Their willingness to hear each other out and be there for one another when the need arises is very touching.
