Who was your favorite comic book character when you were growing up? Mine were limited. We had DC Comics, but not X-Men (though I loved X-Men when I first saw the cartoon). My parents never took me to a comic bookstore, so whatever was at the grocery or drug store were the comics I knew.
Aside from Raven (which was last week’s Fan Art display) and I didn’t know about her until my teens. Two women battled to be my favorite comic book character.
Obviously, as a child and having dark hair, I couldn’t play SuperGirl or even BatGirl. Only here left, was Wonder Woman. Though I thought it was cool that she was also an Amazon 🙂

How about you? Who was your favorite comic book hero/heroine growing up?
Question for all the Wonder Woman fans: The New Justice League has Wonder Woman flying. Agree or Disagree?
I disagree: Wonder Woman could never fly before – why now? She has a jet (invisible) to fly. Does Superman have a jet or plane? No. Why? Because he can fly. Does Batman have a jet/plane? Yes. Why? Because he can’t fly. So my calculations: Jet/Plane = can’t fly without one
Her favorite childhood memories revolved around creating vibrant characters for her friends, and then acting out their adventures. Inside her fantasy worlds of darkened forests, dragon-filled glades, and iced islands, nothing was banned. From the ethereal Elvin to the most maligned Vampires, all were welcome in her fictional realities, a stark contrast to her home, where the magical and mythical was forbidden.
Divorced and disillusioned of love and believing all the love songs and books exaggerated, she put aside her creativity for life. Many years past before characters, from the familiar to the freshly conceived, came to her again, but this time teasing at a new passion, the written word.
Gradually, her real life hero brought love and magic back into existence. During the time when her characters were getting reacquainted, the love of her life was showing her that true love never gives up and rekindles no matter how many times others attempt to extinguish it. Today, she is happily married with three children.
Andrea believes in the power of change and delighting in each moment. But most fervently, she believes in the magic of love and imagination again.
