Happy New Year to all my readers. Yeah I’m late, so sue me! Let’s hope it’s a goodie!
Do you chaps make New Years resolutions? I’m not sure if this is just a western thing or countries around the world partake of this annual making-a-promise-to-improve-oneself-or-do-something-different. I gave up making them years ago and this year I have made 4 – swear less, smoke less, lose weight and publish book. *If only you could see my face right now*
Thought I’d start the year with something daft, a bit of candyfloss for the brain as I like to call it (and some of my writing-but that’s another matter). So I present for your delectation a selection of New Years resolutions from some of our favourite comic characters – yeah I actually interviewed them! What!? I didn’t say I was going to stop lying in 2018!!!
“Gonna smile more.” Hellboy
“Start a swim club and invite Batman; maybe he’ll like me more.” Aquaman
“Spend more time with my family.” Loki
“Visit my mother more.” Wonder Woman
“Get in touch with my gentler side, and hug people.” Batman
“Take up appliqué sewing.” Thing
“Try and get over my social anxiety and stop hiding.” Invisible Woman
“Try out a better alter-ego disguise.” Superman
“Ditch the tights, too chilly.” Green Arrow
“Quit smoking, drinking and swearing so much.” John Constantine
“Get a shave.” Wolverine
“Get a nice girlfriend and…get laid!” Captain America
“I am going to start taking out all the movie producers who do not give me film of my own this year. And you know I don’t mean dinner!” Black Widow
“ Make an Iron Woman; so I can get in touch with my feminine side. No, actually, what could be better than making love with me, myself and I.” Tony Stark
“I’m gonna get a kitten and call it Francis, and feed it, and love it, and care for it and pet it. And stop being so sarcastic and pay attention when the bad guy shows up. And make friends with all the strangers I have yet to meet…New Years Resolutions? Get outta here!” Deadpool
Well there you have it folks, resolutions from fourteen of our super heroes, for real!
