    As a starter...

    Broforce from VGCats. I want to borrow Aeris' Time Machine, go back and do to their mothers what Aeris did to Leo's in a certain strip...

    Broforce, though loathsome, is hilarity incarnate. Sort of a Frank Burns complex.

    I guess that's mine then, Major Frank Burns Very Happy

    OH MY GOD! YOU TOO? THANK YOU!!

    I can't stand Batman! No one seems to be able to accept that either! Every time I try to tell someone that I dislike Batman, they always try to shove it in my face and get me to change my mind, but it only makes me hate him more.

    I TRIED to like him. When I was a kid, I tried to watch the show, but I just couldn't get into it...
    Then I tried to see the movies. I saw the Jack Nickelson one, and it made me fall asleep. Then I saw Batman and Robin...there is just no excuse for the existence of that film...

    By the time Batman Begins rolled around, I had decided that it just wasn't my thing. I could tolerate him, but I wasn't into it. The thing that made me straight up HATE him was that NO ONE would get off my back about it! People kept bugging me and bugging me and bugging me and no one could just take "I don't like Batman" as an answer and leave it at that.

    It's refreshing to see that I'm not alone.

    Yeah, funny thing is, I *do* like his villains (when they're done well). In fact, the villains make the story for Batman, perhaps more than any other superhero. I think that is more why the Batman movies that sucked, sucked so hard. Arnold? Uma Thurman? Jim Carrey? Really?

    You didn't miss much with Batman Begins, although, if you haven't watched The Dark Knight, you really are missing out. Once again, the villain is what makes it so fun to watch.

    I think the theme is the Batman character is more a two dimensional hero used to showcase the actual characters which are the villains.

    I did get dragged to that movie. And I STILL do NOT care. I HATE Batman with a fire that not even God himself could burn out of me. I don't care who's playing him, I don't care how dark the movie is, I don't care who the villain is, I don't care who's playing the villain. I f*cking hate Batman!

    *sigh* and I thought that I had someone on my side for once...guess that was too good to be true...

    Nazis. No matter what game or movie they're in, it's fun to watch them die.

    I saw Inglorious Basterds (the word is spelled like that in the title intentionally). If you hate Nazis, then this is your flick. Sure, it throws historical accuracy out the window, but it doesn't matter. It's Tarantino's way of saying F*CK WHITE SUPREMACY and he does it well. What happens at the end is not what happened historically, but crap, it's sure as hell what SHOULD have happened...

    The religious chick in the movie "The Mist". I get angry seeing her for she reflects a few folks I know who are that crazy. Then I realize those people are close friends...Hm.

    Although I really do enjoy Batman both when I was a child and now I respect your opinion Pan. Besides I always liked Joker better anyway.

    I hate Sonic, the hedgehog needs to be put down.

    Classic Sonic was awesome.

    Present-Day Sonic, as well as Shadow, Eggman, and all the other dumbass new characters need to die.

    Eggman is not Sonic's enemy. It's frikkin' Dr. Robotnik.

    The only new character in the Sonic series that I don't despise is Rouge. She's actually kinda cool.

    And Tails is actually a female kitsune in the original Japanese version, but SEGA America didn't think people would buy the game because of a girly character (or they'd assume she was jailbait), so they gave Tails a sex change... Now Sonic comes across as a gay pedophile because he runs around and lives with an underage guy...

    That reminds me of the general reaction that people had when the found out Samus was a woman. I guess at the time game companies didn't like the idea of female characters that could actually do more than get captured and get stuck in a castle by a giant turtle dude....yes I hate Bowser as well but mainly for game play reasons. not because of his character.

    Omigod, YES. THANK YOU! I grew up with Dr. Robotnik being Sonic's nemesis and now all these kid's shows and video games are referring to him as Eggman. I'll never refer to him as such.

    Heh, my brother didn't believe me when I told him that Samus was a woman. He would vehemently argue that she was a man.

    Then he bought Brawl. XD

    This Eggman guy is supposed to be some kind of descendant of Robotnik. Like a nephew or something. I don't know. Either way, it's stupid.

    There's nothing wrong with Beverley, except she spawned the most hated character in all of Star Trek, Wesley. But I don't hold that against her, she was cool.

    What I don't get is Wesley is despised by pretty much anyone who saw him, and the producers went and MADE HIM IMMORTAL!!!

    I know at least five websites who's only existence is Wesley's demise.

    *poot*

    As for the Baltar from the new series, he's a TOTAL WUSS, the orginal one would spank him, for one thing the Orginal Baltar never had a doubt about himself or that what he was doing/did was wrong.
    - Orginal Baltar : Betrays the humans to spare his colony but is double crossed
    - Light Baltar : Sex mad jerk who is little more than a wimpering little boy

    And as for Wesley, you can't help but feel sorry for Will Weaton.
