I remember not too long ago when RIV and Jook both said it was preposterous when even a fictional woman was stronger than a fictional man

Which shows some seriously deep rooted insecurities

Wonder Woman is more of a strength peer for Thor than Superman is
I remember not too long ago when you said...
...no, i really dont remember what you say from post to post.

Thanks for admitting you hang on my every word, though.
It shows some seriously deep rooted insecurities on your part, but i like the attention.  ;D

Actually I think Richard Pryor skipped right over Murphy and inspired Rock and Chapelle directly. They both seem like much more legitimate heirs to Pryor than Murphy ever did.
That's a great point.
They both -say- things with their humor.
Murphy was just funny.

Eddie Murphy over both. Nutty Professor demonstrated as much.

Murphy has more raw talent than them in terms of voice and timing and mannerisms, but he's kinda dumb. He comes across as someone who stopped evolving at 14.
He basically did.
He had a lot of early fame, and more importantly, a lot of yes men and hangers on telling hin he could do no wrong. It happens.

Thats about right.
Her superior fighting skill and huge tits let her fight slightly above her weight class, making her seem in the 100 range.

Kept thinking about the cartoon themed one i did, found a few more characters that would fit.

He brings off world tech and a host of odd abilities.
Totally NOT using the fame and acceptance to his presence provided by the team to pave the way for an invasion by his people.

THE MILLENNIAL-Kick Buttowski (Kick Buttowski)
Rushes headlong into every dangerous situation the team faces, and, his YouTube video hits are in the millions because of it!

THE URBAN LEGEND-Candlejack (Freakazoid!)
Ghost like powers of teleportation, intangibility, and showing up directly behind people make for an eerie team addition. His spookiness make Jack inexplicably popular with kids. They play with his toys and dress as him for Halloween. Jack goes from summer camp story heard by dozens to national celebrity.
On his off time, he's going to need more rope.

^^^Had to think about it, but that works!

hellboy did crave the spotlight in the second movie. Daffy always does! The Tick would probably drive Captain Amazing insane, in short order...!

Hey, prop...


...TTG is coming to the big screen, baby. :P

I'm not that big on Dave's stand up.
Neither am i. Rock keeps it moving rapid fire, less rambling.

Darth Vader. I mean, pre-prequels, it was "a great hero who fell to the Dark Side". That's pretty timeless and classic.

Magneto's became pretty classic, though it's not as known to the general public. It may or may not hurt that his origin came like 15 years after his debut.

Venom's is classic enough that it's more or less copied directly in every adaptation. That says something.
I can see Vader!
Magneto's has been done well, though, in the X movies, i will definitely say that.

This is a really good episode. Probably would make Letters rock hard.
The second?
I'll likely end up watching it with the spouse, but i'm not even psyched.

Roadhouse feels 1980s.
Oh good one. So is Ghostbusters, IMO.

^^^nice call(s).
I was actually going to add Tarzan to my list of heroes in the OP, as his is an almost universally known origin, with a ton of different takes done on it.
If it counts, I really like the Fly's origin, from the movies. Particularly the 1986 remake, although I like the original as well. The whole telepod thing strongly appealed to me as a Star Trek fan, and the use to which it was put to create a movie monster was very inventive, not to mention tragic, since they did a good job of getting me to care about the main characters.
I'd say it counts, its good you guys are going outside of comics!

So what's his origin? What makes it classic?

Superman. Spidey. Batman.
These are not only classic origins, but parodied/homaged so often even non comics fans know them.

Villains though, what have -they- got? What are the classic villain origins, if any.
