5 Characters Meme

Kalinara gave me the letter J, and here's the rules:

5 Characters Meme
1. Comment on this post.
2. I will give you a letter.
3. Think of 5 fictional characters and post their names and your comments on these characters in your LJ.

1. Joker
I'll go with the easiest one to think of, because for me J was out of left field. Joker, to me, is a fantastic villain when used sporatically. I think he's been used a little too much recently, but I do like the way Morrison has used him. Heath Ledger knocked the character out of the park with his performance.

I think I like Joker best when he is trapped behind the glass wall acting like Hannibal Lector from Silence of the Lambs. He knows why you're there. He's happy to see you. He's wondering what color you are inside, and if you like bats.

I don't like clowns. They freak me out a bit. To quote the older Barbara Gordon from Batman Beyond: "In Gotham, clowns are never funny."

2. Jonah Hex
To be honest, I know very little about Jonah Hex. I have a soft spot for Sergio Lione westerns. Jonah, on the surface at least, reminds me of Blondie (Clint Eastwood) if he wasn't so chipper. The only Hex comic I've actually bought was the recent one with Cooke drawing Hex's adventure in Canada. That was one great issue.

I probably am also pulled to Hex with the subconcious pull from his visual similarity to Two-Face. He's scarred on the face, marking him for all to see and know who he is and stay out of his way. He also has the connections to the whole wierd western theme, which I find fun to think about.

3. Jonny Quest
Jonny Quest was always one of those characters you either love or hate for me. As a kid I would catch bits of random episodes and become fascinated by what I saw. Moments later I wouldn't care a bit and change the channel hoping to find a show I really loved.

I remember they made an updated version of the cartoon, which was fairly well done. They added 3D effects and such, beacuse that was the hip thing to do back then. I don't remember the Indian kid - I think he was replaced with the girl. I remember the names, but it just sounds worse when you say it like that. I'm also probably wrong about that.

As much as I tend to bash on Jonny Quest in the last two paragraphs, I do have to give it credit. Without Jonny Quest there would be no Venture Bros. to really capture my interest. That show is unbelievable.

4. John Henry Irons
That movie was amazing, wasn't it? Shaq is such a great actor and needs more roles. Black Adam, anyone? Kidding, of course. I'm sure he's a great guy in person, but he's no Oscar winner.

Concerning the 'Real' Steel, the one in comics, The most I've honestly read has been in the Justice League comics and a handful of random Superman related issues. It's odd though, because most of the stuff I've read has him working more with Batman than Superman. That work, however, has always been important.

If Batman allows you to work with him, that has to say something about the character's worth and potential. Despite always appearing like a 2nd tier hero he has always displayed significant contribution to whatever end result that saves the day.

5. James Ford
With that I bet most people will scratch their collective heads and wonder "who?" I'll throw out another name. John Locke. Now you're getting a better idea, right?

I may be cheating by using two names for one entry, but those are two of the most interesting characters from Lost in my opinion. James Ford you know as Sawyer, and Locke is, well, Locke. Sawyer is absolutely devoted to self-preservation, changing sides to which ever appears to be best suited for his own interests. John Locke is obsessed with the notion that he is there for a much bigger role to play, a self designated messiah with the island as his throne.

Jack Sheppard is interesting, but is kind of bland to me. Jin is fun to watch as he stumbles about making friends, but I don't know whats going on with him (no spoilers).

Wait-that's four in one entry... Sorry, Kal!
