As great as Wolverine is, it’s actually nice to give someone else from the X-Men franchise a turn to have his own movie for a change. He’s a superhero mutant called Deadpool.

To be honest, I never heard of Deadpool before seeing this movie. It turns out that he’s a former Special Forces operative named Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds). Wade is indestructible and has a huge sense of humor. And I often thought Spiderman was the funniest superhero.

As it turns out, Deadpool was also featured on X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Ryan Reynolds played the role then as the sword-wielding soldier Wade Wilson. However, when he was featured as a mutant, Wade was a lot different. He didn’t have the red suit, or go by the name Deadpool. So there’s no way I would’ve recognized him then.

Back to this movie, Deadpool is a smooth fighter and likes to make jokes, mostly dirty ones. As disturbing as his origin story is, he still can’t help but make wisecracks toward his enemies, Ajax (Ed Skrein) and his superhuman associate Angel Dust (Gina Carano).

There are only two other X-Men featured. The first is Colossus (voice of Stefan Kapcic). He was a favorite of mine since he was a playable character on the X-Men Arcade Game. I can still remember how loud the laughter in the movie theater was when Deadpool tried to fight him.

The other X-Men member featured was Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand). I never heard of this mutant before, but her power is amazing. She can actually blow things up, like a warhead.

And of course, let’s not forget the Stan Lee cameo. It’s nice to see him make these appearances in each Marvel movie.

Things get real exciting when Ajax captures Wade’s girlfriend Vanessa (Morena Baccarin) and Deadpool goes to save her with the aid of the two X-Men, respectively. If only Deadpool wouldn’t keep forgetting his ammo bag.

This was certainly an interesting superhero movie. However, it’s hard to tell if Deadpool is actually a superhero since he keeps claiming that he’s not. So does that make him an antihero, or what?

Pamela Anderson Lee was a hot heroine in Barb Wire. She continues that legacy as the animated crime fighter Stripperella (2003-2004). She has spy gear in the form of women’s accessories and a body that can withstand any extreme temperature.

Stripperella’s secret identity is Erotica, an exotic dancer. However, she’s not very good at hiding her secret. Erotica blabs things out loud, but covers it up quickly and awkwardly. Yet it always works no matter who hears it. Furthermore, whenever Stripperella goes undercover, she never thinks ahead when it comes to an alias.

There’s a lot of sexual related humor on this series. For example, Stripperella’s favorite charity is called Animals Need Universal Support a.k.a. A.N.U.S.. Also look for sexual puns on the signs around the city. They’re everywhere.

At Spooky Empire Mayhem 2012, I met Joey Lauren Adams. She was the voice of Catt, one of the other strippers. When I told Joey that I knew her best for this role, she mentioned that she also did several voices for Doctor Dolittle 2 and that I should be sure to look for them.

Stripperella fights all sort of enemies. Some of which are colorful archenemies like Queen Clatoris the elusive cyber villain with a face that could make anyone cringe. That’s why it’s usually hidden.

Small Fry is a short man with a huge chip on his shoulder and is highly irritable to even the slightest thing related to the word “short”.

Then there’s Cheapo the penny-pinching crime lord, who would prefer to steal copper instead of gold. Another interesting thing about Cheapo is that he sounds a lot like Jon Lovitz, but that’s not who voices the character.

It’s unknown how Stripperella started out as a superhero, but she’s always there when crime is afoot. However, Stripperella is not a loner, like Spiderman. She works as a secret agent under the command of Chief Stroganoff, who always keeps her posted.

I got to meet series creater Stan Lee at MegaCon 2012.

This is a good series with great crime fighting action, but sometimes when it comes to the sexual puns, the characters tend to babble. That gets annoying and makes me want to say, “Okay, I get it.”

Hey, everyone. I had a real exciting time at one of the biggest comic book conventions in Orlando. It was a great turnout this year at MegaCon, especially since one of the biggest celebrity guests was none other than Stan Lee, creator of many franchises from Marvel Comics.

Other celebrity guests include Anime voice actors and stars from sci-fi and fantasy films, but I’ll get to those later on.

There were also a good amount of comic book artists, which include Brian Pulido the creator of Lady Death. She’s such an awesome character. Don’t you think?

Comic book artist Karl Kuras also returned this year with new issues from I Love Sushi, which contained more parodies on classic cartoons, like the Fraggles eating doozer sticks built with asbestos, Optimus Prime’s movie stardom going to his head, and Cheetara from Thundercats hitting on young Simba. Karl remembered me for my blog and once again he drew another new idea on the front page. This time he made one about Jem, which featured Rio looking forward to a threesome with Jem and Jerrica. What will he think of next?

And of course there was a lot of Cosplay from Anime characters from Soul Eater to classic superheroes like She-Ra and Storm from X-Men.

Here are a few other Cosplay characters that also looked cool.
