BOOK Good Omens god quote

Heroes, s2ep10, non-spoiler

You know what's been striking me so bad about Heroes? The similarities between the X-men stuff and them. Ok, we have the virus that's supposed to destroy 93% of the world's population that takes out people with abilities (can I call them mutants? can I?) and regular humans and X-Men had the Legacy Virus that at first only infected mutants but later evolved to humans, starting with Dr. McTarget (I can't believe I remember this shit, it's been ten years).

And, of course, don't get me started with the similarities in powers.

Logan/Wolverine= Adam and Claire. More so Adam because of the Samurai thing 'cause that was Logan's kink, and him and his father are both older than dirt due to their healing abilities. Not complete re-generation, but close enough.

Ms. Marvel= Niki. And if you include that Rogue absorbed Ms. Marvel's powers and for a while suffered with split personality you have that there too.

Rogue= Peter. If she touched them she would momentarily take their powers. The longer she touched, the more permanent. I know Peter just has to be near someone but it's close enough yet again.

Nathan and West, well, the flying thing is pretty common.

Adam also reminds me of Magneto. Not with the magnet thing, of course, but with his logic about his personal way to save the world.

I remember there was one character that could talk to machines in Marvel, but I don't remember who. Like I said, it's been over 10 years.

I could come up with more but I'm kinda sleepy. Although Stan Lee making that cameo appearance in season one did make me SQUEE! with joy for that inner fangirl in me. Who the fuck am I kidding? The outter fangirl, 'cause I completely did my SQUEE!-ing out loud. When are we going to see a Gambit, huh? They're in New Orleans, let's see a cajun that can kinetically charge objects. Preferably cards yo.

Oh, and for those who saw ep10 did ya'll notice how much "For the Greater Good" was dropped? HP-verse much?

See the time? That I'm awake is not a good thing. Damn insomnia. I slept through my morning shift yesterday, and that was bad. Then when I went in for my night shift it was so dead I was given the option to go home so I took it. I'm picking up a Saturday night to make up for it, and being able to put Trevor to bed in our own house instead of picking him up while he's asleep is awesome.

Oh! And I have to mention! oops_in_the_apt bought me Daiquiri Ice from Baskin Robins. For those who have not had this in all it's amazingness you absolutely must. Coming back from the movie her and Tanya stopped for ice cream and when they got home she told me she got me something. And I just knew it was that because she knows it's my weakness liek woah. And she kinda had a Baskin Robins bag in her hand. I had stopped about bought orange sherbet push-pops because we were talking a few weeks back about our intense love for those. Wanna hear what she bought herself at BR? Orange Sherbet. We each had a push-pop before breaking into the BR goodness.
