Yeap, I totally know what you are talking about since I've read the X-Men growing up and I'm a pretty huge Marvel buff. But I prefer Cyclops; well at least the latest version where he takes the weight of the world on his shoulders and does all that is necessary to ensure that mutantkind survives...even killing enemies before they have a chance to strike. I always found it fascinating having to make tough decisions when you have such a heavy responsibility.As long as we're on superheroes, my favorite was always Rogue (from the comics not the movie). I always identified with her struggle, her desire to simply be able to touch another human being without fear of destroying that person. She lived within herself, much as extremely introverted types do, never quite being able to participate. She had an abiding sadness and a vulnerability (though she was mostly impervious to physical harm) that she covered up with a glib, tough facade. She was also torn by her love for her mother (a villain) and former villainous teammates, and her new family, the X-men. She had to overcome the X-men's (especially Wolverine) mistrust of her, as well as her own guilt at having permanently absorbed Ms. Marvel's personality. Yet, she was also strong, both physically (due to Ms. Marvel's absorbed powers) and mentally.
Why Colossus? And what kind of memories do Sailor Moon bring to you?Batman
Because he's a normal man who still managed to help the others without super-powers and his mysterious mind (I liked a lot some episodes in which he had to deal with his own fears) makes him vulnerable, in spite for his tough guy appearance.
Colossus from X-Men
My nickname, of course.
Mostly the same as for Batman, except he actually had some powers.
I liked her style a lot but I would say the hairstyle and bright colors makes her one of my childhood favorites although now I like her more because of the memories she brings to me.
Colossus because he looks like a tough guy but, although heroic at times, he tends to be quite childish. He doesn't seem to have any actual friends, although he never rejected anyone from his life. I like his image throughout as a quiet, shy character, honest and innocent. He's also from East Europe! (russian)Why Colossus? And what kind of memories do Sailor Moon bring to you?
I like your thorough explanation on your admiration for Captain Sisko. In truth, I like Star Trek, Star Wars and most of the movies or series set in space. I did want to watch Deep Space 9, but I always got distracted by other things. But from what you say, Sisko is an awesome character. Thanks for sharing!Captain Benjamin Sisko: "Throughout the series I came to identify with his characteristics. He was a damn single father after his wife was killed by the Borg (and, apparently, he was an excellent and encouraging father at that!). He was a Captain who was able to simultaneously care deeply about his people and their station yet be authoritative and firm if needed. He was a hell-raiser in his youth but turned out to be a demigod to the Bajorans. He was a straight-shooter; his strategy was not to be diplomatic (i.e., Picard) or cunning (i.e., Kirk) but to blow the hell out of everything. He could cook and play baseball. He was a manly man who wasn't afraid to cry in public. He was a firm believer in Federation morality and ethics, but was willing to set aside his beliefs to protect the entire Alpha Quadrant. I mean, seriously, that is an awesome character."
I've never read Dragonlance before, but given your description of Raistlin Majere, he sure sounds like an INTJ.Raistlin Majere (Dragonlace):
I cannot say that I quite identify with him, certainly not with his ambition (I have none). Nevertheless, he is a fascinating and complex literary construct; his fierce intellect compensating for the frailty of his body, his exploitation of his brother’s love of him in order to secure his assistance, while simultaneously resenting his need for that help. I do identify with his feeling of isolation and the temptation he feels (and his cynicism and sarcasm). I am guessing INTJ.
Anne Shirley (Anne of Green Gables):
I identify strongly with this character. She has a vivid imagination that often gets her in trouble, and a keen ability to observe what is positive in people, to focus on and encourage their good traits. She is surrounded by people who do not understand her. She is bold and stubborn (which I am in my way). I had an incredibly strong imagination as a child, such that it overlapped into the real world, and refused to conform even in the face of hostility or ridicule. Plus, like me, she is well-acquainted with stress. Almost certainly INFP.
These aren't in any special order, except the order in which I thought of them.
1) Anne Shirley (Anne of Green Gables) - Perky, quirky, spirited, and caring. Who wouldn't love her?
2) Remus Lupin (Harry Potter series) - He was just so nice to Neville! He struck me as such a
3) Elizabeth Bennet (Pride and Prejudice) - A clichéd choice perhaps, but she's just so darned witty!
5) Candide (Candide, or Optimism) - Don't we all feel at times that we want simple things, yet are thwarted
to unbelievable - even hyperbolic - degrees?
Naruto is alright, but a little too enthusiastic for my liking. I prefer Gaara and Rock Lee haha. But I like Rock Lee for his determination to overcome the odds.Uzumaki Naruto:
Give up? Why there's no giving up! It's my way of the ninja!
Nothing like being there for your family!
Love their family bond!
I loved this series as a kid. LOVE it.
Captain Janeway (From the starship voyager!):
Talk about one strong willed lady who can lead her crew!
Dr. Hannibal Lecter: Despite the fact that at his core he is a twisted man, Dr. Lecter is one of my favorites because he is quite brilliant and captivating. Throughout both the films and the books he is an excellent physician and psychiatrist. What's beautiful to me is his ability to integrate the arts and humanities into his chosen profession. And, of course, he has such style. Again, it was a shame that he was a villain.
