Favorite Comic Book Character Part 2
I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! It’s December 2nd and NaNoWri is officially over. Whew! It was my first time and I had a blast, but am also worn out. Back to Fan Art Tuesday! Week before Thanksgiving, I shared that growing up, Wonder Woman was my favorite female comic book character. Or rather one of them 🙂
There was another who intrigued me and I often played with my cousin.
Care to guess???
She actually wasn’t a hero/heroine, but a villain. Though, in the Alternate Universe DC Comics: she gave up her life of crime, married Batman, and had a daughter – The Huntress (which I’ll share her images next week).
I mean not only could she have (in the old Batman TV Show – which I watched in reruns as a kid) cats, but Tigers, Jaguars, Leopards and more.
And of course, she was gorgeous as well:
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.
