Happy Holidays folks, and what better way to get in the Christmas spirit than superheroes......what, haven't you read the title, of course this is gonna be Christmas related! What can be said about the Justice League cartoon that hasn't already been said? It's just a fantastic series and a fantastic cap off to the classic DC Animated Universe, and like many great cartoons, there's a Christmas episode and that's what we're gonna talk about so lets get started.

The episode starts off with Superman, Martian Manhunter, Flash(Wally West), Green Lantern(Jon Stewart), and Hawk Girl assembling a gravity device to prevent two planets from colliding with one another, after which the three formers head home while GL and Hawk Girl stay behind and our three plots get going. I'm gonna talk about each plot from least favorite to favorite since they all move to and from one another, and when I said least favorite, I don't mean I didn't like it, it's just that I like the other plots more than the first plot we're talking about, Green Lantern and Hawk Girl as I said stay behind on the planet they built the device on which was a snow planet, we see GL using his ring to create a snowboard and go down a hill, having fun, Hawk Girl has a hard time understanding and GL decides to have a little snow ball fight with her, to try and get her to see why he enjoys the winter months, and by little, I mean two superheroes are having a snowball fight, and one of them is a Green Lantern, and he's making catapults, extra hands to throw snowballs, the whole nine yards, after which Hawk Girl wants to show GL how she celebrates and takes him to a bar on a distant planet, during this scene we have a cameo from Swamp Thing in the background but I digress, this bar is basically the Canteena from Star Wars where there's multiple aliens and one can assume that most if not all of them have some kind of record, Hawk Girl smashes the hand of a giant alien and puts the blame on GL and hijinks ensue.

The second plot is that after talking with Martian Manhunter and learning that he doesn't have any plans for the holidays, Superman invites MM to join him and his parents in Smallville for some Christmas cheer, this part of the episode is pretty funny, whether it's Martian Manhunter introducing himself to Ma and Pa Kent by saying "My name is J'hon....I am a Martian" Superman still believing in Santa, Superman trying to use his Xray vision to sneak a peak at his presents only to have them be covered in lead wrapping paper, and MM reading a little girl's mind when she was thinking about a boy who told her Santa wasn't real, which leads to a nice little wink to the comics where MM goes on the roof of the girl's house and reaches down her chimney to grab one of the cookies she left out for Santa, and the cookies were Oreos, that was a cute and funny scene, but comedy aside this plot was also a little heartwarming Martian Manhunter, since he's the last of his kind and is even more of an alien to earth than Superman, he has trouble on understanding Christmas, it's only when he goes through Smallville and observes the citizens doing random acts of simple kindness whether it's a woman wishing MM (who turned into a human to blend in better) to have a merry Christmas, the girl that I mentioned, and hearing a church choir singing carols, of course there's the Kents themselves, and you really get a sense that yeah, these are the type of people who would make Superman the big blue boy scout he is today.

And the third plot and my favorite involves the Flash who is just looking for a toy to give to orphans, now from what I just typed yeah, it sounds like the plot to Jingle All the Way, that crappy Christmas movie staring Arnold Schwarzenegger and only celebrates consumerism and the commercial aspect of Christmas, but with the Flash, it's done right, the toy Flash is looking for is a new hot item that's sold out all over Central City and Flash had to go to Japan in order to get the last one from the factory, however on the way back to the orphanage, he runs into the Ultra Humanite who's destroying a museum for modern art, during the battle, Flash accidentally knocks Humanite onto the toy, breaking it, Humanite, being a villain and a cultured fellow doesn't see any real problem, thinking that the toy is just a hunk of plastic, and Flash mentions it's for orphans who have really nothing, this does get through to Humanite who, after knocking Flash out, rebuilds and modifies the toy and the two of them give the orphans the new toy which gives off a glow and starts telling the tale of the Nutcracker instead of dancing and making pooping noises that it was originally programed to do, the kids loved it still, probably more so than if it did what it originally did, the segment ends with Humanite being taken back to his cell in prison and meeting the Flash, who set up an aluminum Christmas tree, Humanite is actually somewhat grateful for it and the two leave on about as good of terms that a superhero and super villain can be on when the villain is in prison.

My over all thoughts on the episode is, Comfort and Joy just makes me smile and helps me get in the Christmas spirit, even during times when I feel like a real Scrooge, the part with the Flash, and how his story is all about helping orphan children and even a villain like the Ultra Humanite helping him out for the sake of the season, just makes me feel good, the story with Superman and Martian Manhunter is also a nice Christmas tale, though I feel that both this story and the one with the Flash could of been episode all on their own, the only part I felt served its purpose was the one with Green Lantern and Hawk Girl, it was fun to see the two have a snowball fight and use their abilities, and it was funny to see them at the bar, I almost lost it at the end of their segment when it showed both of them cuddled together and the big alien that they were fighting having his arm around them like they were his teddy bear, it was funny but also oddly sweet, I give Comfort and Joy a 8/10
Lets just get started on a lot of things that came out in the last few months that I like to give my two cents on.

1. Gotham TV Series: When I first heard that this was coming out, I was excited, the cast was solid and it would be a nice idea to see how Gotham came to be the city that needed someone like Batman, however.....the only good thing I can really say is that the actors are great, the rest of the show is sadly underwhelming, where it tries its best to give us some classic Batman villains without really giving them to us, keeping Bruce Wayne in the show when really I was just hoping he and Alfred would only be around for the first episode or two, same thing with Penguin, seriously this show is trying its best to be a Batman show without Batman, and for some reason WB and DC wont use Batman or Superman in live action television, I don't know why because if say CW were to announce a Batman TV series set in the same universe as their Flash and Arrow TV shows, after seeing how good CW is doing with those shows, I think a show based on Batman's early years would be amazing and we can have a Justice League for the small screen as well as the big screen, but no, instead we have Fox trying its best to make Batman with only the bones and without the meat.

2. The Flash TV Series: Holy shit do I love this show, and so does my mother, yeah, I sat down with my mom and shown her a few episodes of the Flash and she likes it, Grant Gustin in my opinion is the live action Barry Allen, and whoever the get for the DC Cinematic Universe has a hell of a performance to compete with if he wants to compete, I love that the show is bringing in the Flash's rouges like Captain Cold, Reverse Flash, Captain Boomerang, we're getting Gorilla Grodd, and the Trickster who's gonna be played by Mark Hamill who will be reprising his role after playing the Trickster in not only Justice League Unlimited, but also in the original live action TV series from the 90's, which also stared the actor who's playing Harrison Wells, and please for those who saw the mid season finale, don't spoil the ending, I myself have seen it, but I don't want to have it spoiled for anyone who hasn't and if you haven't seen any of the CW's Flash, I have to tell you this, go watch it right now!

3. Star Wars: the Force Awakens Trailer: I liked it, it left me wanting to see more, and the light saber in the trailer looked great, I know some people are bitching because there was a black Storm Trooper, and I respond to them with this: Shut up, first off, I'm pretty sure that in the new expanded universe, they're gonna explain that the empire needed more troops that the cloning facilities could produce so the empire had to recruit, and also, and this is the funny part, Luke Skywalker and Han Solo both wore Strom Trooper uniforms in a New Hope, it's not like only the clones can wear that armor.

4. Toho is Making New Godzilla movies: YES, ALL OF MY YES! Now, I can see Toho doing this for multiple reasons, the new Toho movie is coming out in 2016, while the sequel to Legendary's Godzilla movie is coming out in 2018, I think Toho is just trying to strike the iron while it's hot, while Legendary's Godzilla didn't make as much money over all compared to other summer blockbusters this year, it's still the highest grossing Godzilla movie of all time and it kept Godzilla relevant, and I'm sure the Toho movie is just a way on keeping Godzilla relevant, and while I cant see a major theatrical release in the US, I can see a limited release much like Dragonball Z Battle of Gods, and besides the Godzilla fans who would go see it, people who liked the Legendary movie and people who are just curious would see it as well and probably make a significant profit, so here's hoping for a new wave of Godzillamania like the one from the 60's and 70's

5. Inside Out Trailer: I liked it, and I feel that Pixar is gonna hit home again after those two Planes movies, plus, Lewis Black is gonna be in it, so I'm gonna see it when it comes out.

6. Constantine TV series: I like it, the actor playing John Constantine, to me he is the character, and I honestly would like to see him play the Doctor after Peter Capaldi retires from the role, but on with the show itself, I really enjoy it, and if it wasn't gonna get cancelled after its thirteenth episode we could of gotten the Specter, and I even heard rumors that Etrigan was supposed to appear in the show, but alas, the show's getting cancelled

I stole this from, :iconkaltes-herzeleid: and :iconshinywhitewaters:

Put a list of 15 names.

1. Sets the Christmas tree on fire: Red Skull
Yeah, that's something he would do.

2. Eats all the cookies left out for Santa: Hulk
Who would stop him?

3. Tells every kid Santa isn't real: Cyclops
What a dick?


4. Person who unwraps the gifts to peek then wraps them again: Luke Cage
Sweet Christmas!

5. Has too much to drink: Ironman
It's Tony Stark, who's really surprised?


6. Throws up at Christmas dinner: Spiderman
Wait till Jamenson hears about this?

7. Still believes in Santa: Hawkeye
I have this hilarious mental image of Clint staying up on Christmas Eve to catch a glimpse of Santa

8. Sets a trap for Santa's reindeer: Sabertooth
Well, he does need to eat.

9. Starts a family argument at dinner: Loki
Christmas time in Asguard is pretty awkward for Odin with one son being a superhero and the other being a supervillain

That's something Johnny would do.

 
11. Forgets to set up the lights: Doctor Doom
Well he didn't forget he just thought that setting up lights would be beneath Doom

As the title says I need help in deciding in what fan fiction to write, I have about three stories in my head that I want to get off the ground but for the life of me I can seem to choose which to start with, so here's the thing, I'm gonna tell you guys the titles of my story ideas and their synopsis and you guys type in the comments below what do you want to see more, with that out of the way, lets get started.

1. Rodan: King of the Monsters- After a full scale alien invasion with King Ghidorah and Mechagodzilla leading the assault, Godzilla has finally fallen, he gives his remaining power to a fallen Rodan, a somewhat homage to Godzilla vs Mechagodzilla 2, and not only does it revive Rodan but also furthers mutates him into something far more powerful, now with the GDF suffering major losses with Kiryu and Mogera heavily damaged and the aliens coming back with an upgraded Gigan, augmented with the remains of Mechagodzilla and DNA of King Ghidorah, humanity's fate now rests on the shoulders of Rodan

2. Transformers: The New War- Basically a story that I was gonna start but the other two ideas crept in and I got sidetracked, it would be based on the voice actor memes I did a while back with the same roster of Autobots and Decepticons that I listed off.

3. Power Rangers: Monster Squad- A multi crossover fan fic done right if you ask me, where five teenagers with attitude from different series are recruited by Dr. Van Hellsing to fight Dracula as well as another villain who wants to awaken Typhon of Greek mythology, it's based on a meme I do plan on posting later and I'll give a further explanation of the idea when I get to that

And there you have it, the three fan fic ideas that are fighting it out in my jumbled mess of madness I call my brain, which ones do you guys want to see first, comment below and let me know.
