Needless to say, I am a HUGE superhero fan. I've never read any of the comics, but that doesn't mean I'm any less of a fangirl. I collect random super hero paraphernalia, I squeal when I see something super hero related, and I enthusiastically jump up and down at the mere mention of a new movie. X-Men, Thor, Spiderman, Batman, Iron Man, you name it. Given that the Avengers was pretty much just a movie devoted to throwing a group of my favorite super heros into a room to see what would happen... I nearly died. You don't even... you don't even know.
In any case, after the movie my friend and I went to Barnes and Noble and I freaked out over the little Avengers table in the corner. Took home my two new best friends:
I only really planned on getting one... but Thor's my favorite and Captain America as a bobble head was the most adorable... so... I bought both. Totally worth it.
Avengers summary with absolutely no spoilers:
Look guys, a super jumbo threat! Ahh, ASSEMBLE THE TEAM. Assemble, assemble, assemble. Bicker, bicker, bicker. Kapow, boom, FIERY EXPLOSIONS. SUPER HOT SUPERHEROES RESPOND. More threats, ahh why can't we get along! NEW THREATS, epic fight scene, and mega teamwork for ultimate success! We failed anyway, oh no! Quick, the ultimate threat is here, ASSEMBLE AGAIN, BUT THIS TIME WE LOVE EACH OTHER. EXPLOSIONS. MORE EXPLOSIONS. DESTRUCTION OF A CITY. SCREAMING CIVILIANS. THE END.
I may have missed a bit of plot in there... but I guess you'll just have to go see it to find out what happens. I can't give away all the juicy info.
Anyway, I don't really have much more to add to this post. Things have been pretty crazy with AP tests coming up. I'll do another "post every day this week" once my tests are all over. Needless to say, I'll be doing absolutely nothing for school.
