Since I sort of hijacked Snephanie's Camo Yarn thread... So sorry :oops:
by mentioning KellyK and her WonderWomanlyness...
Who was your favorite Hero... Super or otherwise... I personally was soooo in love with Steve Austin the Bionic Man. I was the only girl on my block with a Bionic Man Doll. Complete with a red jogging suit and a little plastic car engine you could clip onto his hand and make his arm lift it up. Sigh, I wanted to marry him when I grew up... Lee Majors that is.. .not my doll... :heart: ;)

LOL, it wasn't my thread, I was hijacking too! LOL...but now you know mine was Wonder Woman....

I should also add that when they came out with the colored contacts...years after my obsession had passed, Dad offered to get me some :)

I have dreams of getting to Goal weight and putting on some of those blue contacts and dressing up as WW for Halloween....but I think I would still be too embarrased to go out in public like that. LOL

I loved the Hulk when I was a kid......I was amazed by how he changed so quickly. I loved Bill Bixby (is that his name? ...the guy who played him as a man, Lou Ferigno played him as the Hulk).

Gambit, from the X-men. He's been my favourite ever since I saw him. I'm also a huge fan of Doc Ock from Spiderman, but he isn't actually a hero.

I'm sure few will remember, but...

I used to love Dynomutt and the Blue Falcon as a kid... I even (still!) have a lunchbox with them on it...

Plastic Man was also kinda cool but i wasn't a fan of Baby Plas or his annoying wife. They rank up there with Scrappy Doo on the irritation scale.

Edit: OH!! and of course there's DANGERMOUSE at the top of the list!! LOVE him and and his trusty sidekick, Penfold! "Ooh, crumbs!"

And then there's Banana Man (pronounced in that fabulous plummy British accent Bah-NAAAHH-Nah-Mahn). Brilliant!

Excuse me, Miss_Knit, but if you are a knitter, you are the EPITOME of cool. Doesn't matter if you're a loner who hangs out in front of your computer all day. Most of us on this forum do that! :roflhard:

Remember schoolhouse rock? They had a little piece about VERB! That's whats happenin. It was the black episode. We loved it. Even my grandparents would come in and watch it. It was so rare that black folks were portrayed as "super" or anything other than pimps, prostitutes, gansters or otherwise a mess. THere's also Gordon on Sesame Street. BUll Cosby's Fat ALbert. The Jackson 5 was a cartoon for a while. But VERB! was cool.

funny you mentioned that. i never got to watch the black shows because blacks were not portaryed as positive role models. my white husband knows more about the old black shows than i do! :rollseyes: but i do remember the Verb. Gordon's old butt is still on there and guess what one of his carachters is... a Superhero!

(my kids get so excited and zoom around the house pretending to be Trash Gordon when that bit comes on...)LMAO Is it just me or is it incredibly creepy how everyone on Sesame Street still looks the same as they did when we were kids?

I was soooo in love with Superman, something about that curl, I geuss...although I have to say that Batman is probably the coolest superhero, because he doesn't have any powers (unless being filthy rich is a superpower now) but he still does what needs to be done...

I LOVED that School House Rock segement... I even have it downloaded onto my laptop along with the "Electricity, Electricity"... Fabulous... :)


And i just thought of something pertaining to this thread - are we talking about knitting superheroes too?? If so then it'd be a toss-up between Silver and Amy... Those ladies ROCK! :)
