1. Which (or what sort of) superheroes/superheroines appeal the most to you, and why?
Its not really a type but rather the story that make him/her appeal. I found Superman pretty boring until I read Kingdom Come. The hero must be confronted to difficult choice otherwise there is nothing interresting. There is also the reaction when he confronted to a terrible loss in his/her life and how he/she choses to live (Batman/Daredevil/Spiderman etc). Only bashing “villains” is really boring.
2. Which (or what sort of) superheroes/superheroines turn you off, and why?
The ones with a boring/weak/uninsterresting background story
3. What sort of things do you look for in a superhero/ine? Is appearance everything to you, or how ‘badass’ s/he is (as in how good s/he is against his/her foes), or the kind of person s/he is (morally impeccable like Superman, or bad-tempered like the Hulk, or arrogant like Namor etc), or the concept of the superhero/ine (whether s/he’s a mutant, magic-based, uses all sorts of futuristic gadgets, is a god/dess etc), or a bit of all these?
Don’t care of morale, nor of appearence. It"s always the story and how the hero/heroine reacts. I used to be a Batman fan because he represents the summum of human fortitude.
4. If YOU could have FOUR superpowers, what would they be?
Just the Infinity Gauntlet should be enough
5. Have you ever dreamt of superheroes/superheroines in your sleep?
Don’t think so be I didn’t remember my dream
I don’t read a lot of comics anymore. The last I read was the Civil War crossover. If you don’t know, in this serie, you had two factions: no hero vs villain but rather for/against the Superhuman Registration Act and all the heroes had to chose a side and you could see how they assumed their choice.
The only comics I buy now are the ones drawn by Alex Ross. I find everythong he does is really a piece of art
