I love how people like Batmannerism criticize me for "Slagging off fan opinions", but people get to tell me "I hope you don't seriously believe that". I don't lose any cred saying my opinion, especially if you're the one deciding what's credible to say. You, like me, are an internet fanboy giving an opinion at the end of the day. You're no specialist and neither am I.

1. The first Big Screen meeting of the two biggest Superheroes
2. The First big screen appearance of the biggest female Superhero.
