  8. Cyborg Shark says:

    Who’s your favorite character from Monsters, Inc. or Monsters University? Mine is Randall Boggs. He’s awesome. And blends in. And he’s awesome! My second fave is Mike Wazowski, he’s so funny. And funny.

  9. Spotted Dragon says:

    Has anyone read the Maximum Ride series? By James Patterson? 🙂
    It’s my FAVORITE book series of all time. I don’t usually cry, but it made me cry. My favorite character is Fang. 😎

    Hey guys! If you have time (and a Facebook!), please help my aunt win a contest by clicking on the link above (or copy/paste) and liking the picture there, Thanks! 😀

  13. Slippery Dolphin says:

    1. Okay, my favorite animal (if it were REAL) would be a Phoenix bird or a dragon. They look AWESOME! 😀 If it has to be a REAL animal it would be a dolphin probably, because dolphins are so cute and helpful! 🙂

    2. Um… I don’t really know anything about TV shows or video games, but I like Sonic the Hedgehog and Mario! I also like tomboy girls, but they don’t really make very good girl characters these days! All the boys are the super heroes (not that there’s anything WRONG with that, and no offense to the boys!). 😦

    3. Am I one of the only people that thinks super speed would be a cool super power? I mean, you can dodge anything, you’re practically invisible (if you go fast enough), AND you can walk on water! Not to mention you can play little tricks and harmless pranks with it, because you’ll be so fast that no one would see you. Besides, you can get away quicker if you have all of that speed. 😉 I would like invisibility as well, but I personally think it would be better for CREATING crime than stopping it. I think besides speed, my second power would be to walk through walls and stuff, like Shadowcat on X-Men. 🙂 Still, I also want Storm’s super power (she’s my favorite). 😀

    • Cool Smarticle says:

      2. I LOVE Sonic. 😀 My favorite character is Blaze. 😀 Although I’m not really girly……. But I still like her. 😀

    • Super Comet says:

      2. I created two female superheroes, Super Comet and Super Star.
      3. If I were a superhero, my power would be the ability to turn into animals. I’d LOVE to be able to turn into a cheetah, hummingbird, peregrine falcon, or seal. (Those are my favorite animals)

      • bl mt cs au says:

        *smiles weakly* yes, if I was a superhero, I would be able to find anyone I wanted. people from my last… eh, journey, perhaps.

  14. Cool Smarticle says:

    Anyone here play any instrument(s)? And if you do, which one(s)? 🙂

    I play the recorder. since it was required, but I haven’t touched it in awhile. xD The main one I play is the Clarinet and I have to say I’m pretty awesome at it too. 😎 Since I’ve been playing it for almost 3 years. 😎 And yes I do take classes in school. 😛

  15. Bane says:

    I’m Bane, yes, that’s my name.
    When you hear the name Bane, I guarantee the pain.
    I’m coming after you, Bruce Wayne.
    I’m stronger, smarter, and clinically insane.

    I’m Bane, yes, that’s my name.
    Bruce Wayne and the Batman are totally the same.
    I broke his back mortal comBAT smack,
    then I cracked my ’28 Krug champagne.

    I’m Bane, yes, it’s a shame.
    I declare martial law, and you all complain!
    I laugh when you ask why I wear the mask.
    I’ll explain. It’s because…..

    I’m Bane, yes, that’s my name.
    You say it too much, the name becomes inane.
    Of course! Some think my plan lacks gain.
    If you say it too my face, I’ll crash your plane.
