Aberrant Day

As today was our first Aberrant game I spent most of it away from the computer. It was a great beginning game. We ended up with the team name of the Phoenix Corps as our team is an extension of a non-profit organization called the Phoenix Foundation (thanks MacGyver!). Our team consists of Tsunami, Ember, Valor, Whisper, Scourge and Angus Aegis (don't ask).

I can't begin to describe how cool it was. We had a neat first mission (involving saving Scourge) and Valor got to put the bad guy into orbit -literally! All it all it was a fun day.



I hope everyone had a nice Mother's Day! In ancient times mothers were seen as heroes for giving their lives to their children.

I will be posting a few reviews tomorrow and Tuesday. Until then, I leave you all with a question: Who is your favorite superhero and why?

Batman - He is human and he is an almost real possibility. Batman does the right thing and is an inspiration to others. The rich playboy angle doesn't hurt, but ultimately I always felt it was possible to be Batman. Plus he is a great hero born of tragic circumstances.

Who is my favorite superhero? Spider-man! Always has been, always will be. Why? As a kid, I thought Batman and Superman were totally boring. I mean, here's two guys who looked and acted like my Dad's friends. ZZzzzzz...But then I discovered Spidey. Younger guy, had fun, actually cracked jokes, fought guys stronger than he was and beat them with his brain more often than his brawn. Plus, he didn't always come out on top. Spidey gets his butt kicked more often than anyone else. But he never gives up and always keeps coming back for more. I took my sister and her whole family out to see the the first Spider-man movie. During the end battle with the Goblin, I felt my sis grab my arm and she whispered, "He's getting the snot beat out of him! I thought he was supposed to be a superhero." But that's part of the appeal of the character. He's not the smartest guy in the Marvel U, by no means the strongest, he's got no money, gets no fame for what he does. In fact, he's got JJJ on a personal mission to make his life miserable. But none of that stops him from doing the right thing. Spidey taught me about sacrifice, about putting others' needs ahead of your own, about doing what you believe is right no matter if everyone else thinks you're nuts, and(in Amazing 33)about overcoming any obstacle, even when you feel like you can't possibly win, if your family is in trouble and needs your help. Damn but I love Spidey!! Too bad his books are unreadable(have been for years) and I barely recognize the character anymore as he is so changed. They call him the Charlie Brown of the Marvel U now, but that's not the Spidey I know and love.
