About healed1337

I am a relatively new comic book fan writing this blog for other new comic book fans and/or people who are interested in comics but don't know where to start. I've always been interested in writing, to the point where I have a college Creative Writing Certificate and I'm currently a year 2 Journalism student. I also have another blog where I mostly make fun of bad movies - www.healed1337.blogspot.com As for how I got into comics, I've always had a passing interest in superheroes: most notably Batman, Spider-man and the X-Men. Until February of 2011 (I think,) my only experience with any of these franchises came from the movies and video games. Shortly after I bought Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 however, I decided to check out X-23, Wolverine's female clone. I ended up reading her Innocence Lost origin story and enjoyed it. From there, I started reading various X-Men comics and it quickly exploded into my newest hobby. My other interests/hobbies include video games, movies, music, playing sports, my dogs and weird news.

Batman/Superman movies 16 – Batman Begins

If it wasn’t for the fact that Batman Begins released the year after Catwoman, the Catwoman movie probably would have damaged the DC superhero movies a lot more than it did. But the road to Batman Begins wasn’t a smooth … Continue reading

There’s actually a lot to talk about with this movie, so I’m going to keep the behind the scene details to a minimum. I may talk about some of it when I get to Batman & Robin instead. Let’s get … Continue reading

Batman/Superman movies 11 – Batman Returns

This is probably the first movie I’ve done for this blog series where the production was fairly straight forward. That’s not to say there isn’t anything worth talking about, but there weren’t any significant production troubles, behind the scenes politics, … Continue reading
