Author has written 2 stories for Teen Titans.
As someone who lives in the state of Connecticut, the Sandy Hook Elementary school shooting, in Newtown CT. on December 14th, 2012 hit close to home, much closer than any other tragedy for quiet some time. Such a terrible loss of life, and just before the Holidays. The nation has never been more hurt I feel, as deeply and emotionally on a scale this big, since Sept. 11, 2001. Indeed, it has been a dark weekend for this small community, also joined by the entire country, and the world we live in.
Thoughts and prayers do little to comfort those, who have had to bury their loved ones, but it does not go unnoticed, for it lets me and the rest of those in our quaint little state on the eastern sea board, tucked far away from the hustle and bustle of cities and other global events, have some knowledge that we are not alone, nor have we ever been. But above all, that we, and the victims are not forgotten in this time of great sorrow.
Everybody talks about the tipping point, that the tragic loss of these precious, innocent and loving 20 children, and the brave six adults who were there to teach and to nurture them, only to become victims in this school shooting themselves, has at last broken the barrier; but what about all of those other events that have happened before? Columbine, Aurora, Virginia Tech, and so on. The only thing that seems to stay constant after each of these terrible, awful events, is that the people in this country continue to grow even more and more divided, more angry, but above all the previous atrocities seem to be forgotten, as the newest and most recent ones, they bring only further grief and pain to the loved ones, left with the memories, and heartache that some shall not be coming home to celebrate the holidays.
Be there for others, give a helping hand, do not forget what happened here, be willing to spread warmth to those struck by terrible grief and guilt. I have always tried to offer comfort to others, yet it seems there will always be people, who intend to cause harm. Know that even the smallest acts of kindness, can often bring about the biggest changes in someone's life. I cannot speak for everyone in my home state, nor can I or anybody truly understand the heart wrenching agony that these parents and families are going through right now, but know that your warmth from near and far, any and all acts of kindness from the heart, it is greatly welcomed with open arms.
I must confess, things in my world have gone Topsy, turvey so I am swamped and have been for quiet a number of months. I know all of you faithful readers out there are dying to uncover what is to happen in my story. I am doing everything I can, to post as quickly as I can but life as we all know, well it can be a pain in the neck. I am planning on finishing Inner Demons, but again with the shear size of the updates, you have to see from my perspective at how consuming it can be on one person, where as my helpers have troubles of their own to deal with too.
I don't want to give up on the telling, or on myself, dropping the story would just be a giant slap to all of your pretty faces as well as my own pride, and I don't like to hurt the people I care about. People who have taken the time to read into my work, and even submit a review about it. You guys and gals have been so grateful with your waiting, and so kind in your reviews, it would be a horrible crime to abandon the telling where it is, when it truth it is still only getting started. So please, I ask that you hold fast as best that you can, where I know others would just walk away, yet I refuse to do so. As long as I wake and breathe each and every day, there is this giant nagging feeling in the back of my mind, telling me always that I have to finish this. I have to do justice to you the faithful fans and readers. So to sum things up, I am doing everything in my powers as a simple human being, trying to make an honest buck and way in this tough world, where what started as a simple side project of fun, that combines two passions of mine, the Teen Titans and writing; I now see it as something that I had never even considered before. I will not beg but simply state the obvious fact. Life is hard, and some of the greatest things worth having, are obtained through a tough journey where a person learns more about themselves in the process.
Hello to one and all,
I'm 23 years old and yes, I AM MALE! Damned proud of it too.
"You thought we could be decent men, in an indecent time! Well, we were wrong. The real world is cruel and the only justice in a cruel world is chance. Unbiased, unprejudiced ... fair." Two-Face from Batman The Dark Knight. Harvey Dent is awesome and will always be my favorite arch villain to Gotham's greatest hero.
Now, you are probably asking why would anyone call themselves The Mighty One? In truth, I don't believe myself all too powerful in much of anything but I do know to be a helpful friend when others turn away, I bring smiles when there are rainy days, I bring laughter when there is only silence, and I stay true to my word. When I first created this name for the account, the only thing I could focus on was of my dog.
Use this link to see Falcon from Inner Demons. To sum this giant part up for those of you, who are new to my profile and read or are currently reading one of my stories and thought on uncovering a bit more of the author behind those works well here I am. Perhaps you're coming here could also be from some tiny speck of interest or for no real reason at all; or if you just happen to be clicking on random profiles late at night or in the daytime, then started going into the profiles of other people's profiles that they had friend-ed, and somehow you ended up on my lengthy introduction on who I am for all the world to see. Well, whatever the reason you are here; and for that alone I thank you for stopping on by. ;-)
Okay, if you just wanted to see what got me started into this whole big spiral of enjoyment in writing on this site. Yes, to sum it all up Falcon (The Original Character from my first story on FanFiction being INNER DEMONS) was heavily on my brain, and I could not shake it out of my mind. Not only that, but Teen Titan's was coming to a close on Cartoon Network for reshowing of all five seasons, to make room for new shows. Essentially, Falcon is a character for a possible Teen Titans sixth season following Trouble In Tokyo; that could have been if only I were on the writing staff or if I were a comic book creator to pitch my views for the DC Universe. Alas, that never happened but still, my imagination is near endless and FanFiction allowed me to try something ... well close to it I suppose.
Scififanfreak222 is a very dear friend of mine, who I met months after crafting my first story out. She was so generous to pitch other plot-twists upon my first telling, that it got me to thinking on altering some of the different conclusions that I originally had planned. Scifi drew out and then posted her AMAZING work, of the pure essance on what I was hoping Falcon would truly look like. Go to this site that I listed above where you can see for yourselves, my Original Character as I saw him. I pictured the necromancer like this a whole year when Trouble in Tokyo had come out in theaters, and I thought why not try to write a story, encorperating these two things that I had such a passion for?
Place of Origin: New England CT. That should suffice I think.
Stick shift/ Manual: or Automatic: I know how to drive an automatic, and manual shift vehicles. The car I first learned how to drive on was an automatic, but I really wanted to learn the basics of a stick shift. So yes, I can drive both. (I did buck a number of times before I got the hang of it though, everyone does.) I feel that I can cross that one off my bucket list, because the truth to the matter is, there are not many stick shifts being manufactured anymore. They all were back when the Model T came out in the 1920's, back then everyone had to know how to drive this type of car because, that was all there was to drive. Now adays, you'll be lucky if you ever get the chance to even practice in one. I'm sure that they will still be around, but they will never be as common as they were the year before. In America this is the case, I know that in Europe and other parts of the globe the manual transmission is still pretty common.
Favorite Motto: "You are only lost, if you give up on yourself." Hans-Ulrich Rudel, he was a most famous World War II German Stuka Dive Bomber pilot. He was the most decorated pilot of this war, The Eagle of the East was his nickname, and Rudel was a commander of his own squadron. He flew 3,500 combat missions, and remains unbeaten in all times and of all nations. Most of his victories were against ground forces, and in low level attacks with high fire against him. Han-Ulrich Rudel destroyed a staggering 519 Soviet tanks, with 17 in a single day! In addition to this accomplishment as a Junker 87 Stuka pilot with the screaming sirens on the tires, he sank one battleship, one battle cruiser, one destroyer, 70 landing craft, 11 confirmed aircraft, plus hundreds of motor vehicles, numerous anti-tank, and anti-air positions; as well as armored convoys and bridges. On top of this amazing feat, 12 comrades and six Stuka crew members were saved by him from either capture or death. When he tried to rescue another crash landed crew, from Russian territory in 1944 he was captured and taken prisoner. He escaped and fled with a bullet in his shoulder, covering fifty kilometers through heavy Russian defenses to reach the safety of the German lines. His plane was shot 30 times by ground fire, never once by a fighter plane; wounded five times this intrepid pilot took a direct hit in the right leg where the wound cost part of the leg. Barely six weeks later and against orders not to, he was back flying in combat and would continue to do so until the very last days of the war. He passed away in 1982 and is the outstanding combat pilot of all time!
Type Of Beer: Light beer tastes rather pleasant. Oh don't be so stereotypical about a guy, only being able to drink dark beer. We all have heard the rumors before, that in order to be a strong man of any caliber, a dude can only drink the darkest stuff, and if he drinks light than he's a wuss. I drink light beer becuse it tastes pretty good, why drink something that is not your cup of tea? Captain Morgan's rum with a chaser is pretty nice. I do like that warm, tingling feeling in my esophagus afterwards. :-)
I'm sure the majority of you who read this are well below the age of 21, yet I'm sure that mostly every single one of you (notice how I said mostly) have contemplated on drinking or doing drugs, am I right? There will come a time when you will be forced into a situation that you never expected to come across. One of your friends might have urged you to trying something new, or you just feel that you've grown up and should jump on the bandwagon as everyone you know from grade school, they are already doing it. So you tell yourself things like, "It won't happen. No, not to me, never in a million years. You're a good person who stays away from that nasty and vile stuff." Funny, I used to say something like this. X-D
You can shield yourself away from it all your life, and that is quite the will power to have, but for the rest of us, well the simple fact is we will have to partake in it a little, or we go too far too fast. My pops always said; "A little partying here and there is okay, but if you do it every single night, then it becomes a problem."
You could take a pledge as I have seen a whole lot of kids do on this website. Why are there so many of them? Is it like a club or something, to make you feel connected, powerful, that you think of yourself on a higher plain because those who do drink or smoke, that they will be damned to a life of terrible things? Here is a wake up call. Everybody in the world thinks they are better than others. Why should you believe that just by joining a snobby group of people, who have good morals and look down onto others, is any better than those who do drink or smoke weed?
Well, in my personal view it doesn't. If anything, its just a type of click that is associated with kids in a school system. You know, like the jocks, the nerds, the overachievers in academics, the goths, the lone wolves who stayed away from everyone or were intermingled with everyone and so on. Now it seems there is growing group of people who stay away from trying to live life by experimenting. AND THEY WANT YOU TO JOIN THEM. It reminds me of Uncle Sam and the United States Army Recruiting Posters, "We Want You!" *His finger points at your face* Good for you I guess, but I was never a person to fall into a click of any sort.
Lets be honest with ourselves for a single brief second, just for once in our lives. Are you the kind of person to make any types of pledges to a bunch of strangers that you've never even met in person before, only to agree with them because it feels right at the time? Because some singer on the Disney Channel said to keep away from that becuse he or she is against it too? Here's the thing, we are all human and as human beings, we will continue doing VERY stupid things because that is our nature. (We have been doing this Jackass routine of ours, since the moment humans first came into being on planet Earth. X-D) Why lie to yourself or these friends that you've made? If you plan to be a monk or a nun, than by all means no red wine for you. But seriously, if you made a pledge like that, will you even remember it in a week from now, a month, a year? How about when you are in high school and you are invited to a party. You go to it, have a good time, meet a girl or guy and begin to have a normal conversation and connect, and then someone breaks out their old man's hooch that was locked away. It's a situation that is bound to happen. Why lie to yourself now, its pointless really.
Over all though, if you are going to be drinking and are afraid that your parents will find out, so you decide to not tell them and drive yourself home. Never drink and drive. Your parents would rather have you call for a ride at 3:00 AM, or have you spend the night at a friends house where you both can keep an eye on one another as that's what good friends do. Mom and Dad would rather talk to you, than for you to wind up in a morgue. Sure, they more than likely will shout and you'll be grounded for months, but at least you will be alive. If you haven't yet, trust me you will go through this phase at some point and come to a cross roads. And like most people when they get there, they freeze in the moment and just go with it. We will do stupid and reckless things because the youth only think about the moment, and the brain is still developing.
Think mom and dad never drank at a party or smoked weed? Well, odds are that most of them did, but they don't like to talk about it. Ever see the movie Animal House, that rowdy bunch of College Students who did all of that crazy stuff? Guess what, our parents were their age at some point. However distant that it may be. My parents and most of yours were the Animal House generation from the 1970's, our older sibling's became the American Pie group during the 1980's and 1990's, ours is the Super-bad generation from the early to mid 2000's.
Just take a moment to stop and think about what you are doing, of what choices you are making and the things you are putting into your body, before you go through with it. If you hear a little voice in your head telling you something is not right, that maybe you've had one too many, listen to the little guy and just walk away. He's saved my butt many a times. ;-)
-Boston Red Sox. (Baseball) Rock on Tim Wakefield! The Great Number 8, Carl Yastrzemski will always be my favorite though. With #49 the superb Knuckleballer now retired, Dustin Pedrioa is my new idol. He may be small, be he sure can swing that bat!
-Chicago Cubs. (Baseball) Although they did battle the Boston sox for the World Series a few times, and Boston won. Still, these two are the oldest teams in the sport. I hope the cubbies can break their hundred some odd year old curse. I cannot stand the White Sox, such an arrogant group like the Yankees, but at least the Cubs won their World Series without cheating. You cannot say the same about those terrible White Sox. :-P
-Boston Bruins. (Hockey)
-Hartford Whalers. (Hockey) They disbanded to South Carolina years ago after leaving the Nutmeg State. They are back now, but are a double A team, kind of like a minor league group for baseball, and it doesn't carry a big fanbase.
-Green Bay Packers, Atlanta Falcons, and Baltimore Ravens. (American Football)
Favorite Villains of all time:
1.) Agent Smith. From the Matrix Franchise. Come on, he's like the perfect villain all in one. A computer virus, he cannot be stopped or destroyed. Well, there was that one time in the first movie, but the clone copies of himself he made in The Matrix Reloaded was pretty damned cool. The ending fight between him an Neo in the final showdown was simply epic. "Mr. Anderson, welcome back. We've missed you." Ahhh, Hugo Weaving.
2.) Deathstroke The Terminator (aka) Slade Wilson. The Teen Titan's deadliest foe. Ron Perlman was cast perfectly!
3.) Two-Face (aka) Harvey Dent. Well, he's up there for me, the entire back-story to how he went from Gotham's White Knight, then became a twisted and maniacal villain from a horrible accident is just so facinating and tragic. Aaron Eckhart did Richard Moll proud, he really got that gravelly voice and coin flipping going as Two-Face. :-D
4.) The Joker: Need I say more? Mark Hamill was yes, Luke Skywalker but also the voice over for this guy. The only reason he's down here, well, this is my list so that's why. X-D
5.) Joe Pesci. Who doesn't like his Italian American bravado in his great gangster films like Goodfellas; or his simple blundering burglar role in Home Alone? As a comical villain, how can you not chuckle when you see the guy walk on the screen? Like the great George Carlin said; "You know who I pray to? Joe Pesci.Two reasons, first of all he's a good actor. Secondly, he looks like a guy who can get things done. He doesn't f*ck around." So true.
6.) Darth Vader. The prequels ruined him forever, what a travesty! So he gets bumped down all the way. If you only consider the original saga of episodes; 4 A New Hope, episode 5 The Empire Strikes Back, and episode 6 Return Of The Jedi. These were the good Star Wars movies that he's in. Vader was actually going to be at the number one spot at the top because of these wonderful films, but then I remembered the prequels, and the other versions that George Lucas made, and the things this once great director (now a truly looney guy) said about him, and the entire back-story he had where these things made this once awe inspiring and truly epic of all-time badguys, into a not so tragic fallen hero, but a stupid crybaby. In truth, Vader was a powerful contender for baddest villain of all time, but with the prequels it makes him bumped down to here. He's lucky that he's even on the list. I used to idolize him as a kid, I still use some of his phrases to this day but, I will always feel pain in knowing what the prequels made Anakin's back-story to be. All I wanted to do when I watched episodes I, II, and III was to just gouge my very eyes out of my skull, with a rusty spoon!
Take into account the re-vamped, or re-revamped garbage that made Han Solo shoot Gredo second, and the cut-out scenes that were overall pointless anyway. Lucas even took out David Prowse ghost and put in Hayden Christensen as the spirit Luke saw. (WTF) IF you enjoyed the prequels, than you are one of two things.
(A) You are really, super young; like under the age of six and you do not seem to understand what made Star Wars great at all. Much to learn about the world, have you.
(B) You are a retard. Yes, you are truly very stupid, possibly even brain dead to enjoy eating the pig slop that Lucas gave to us the fans. Everything about the prequels ruined the original saga, it destroyed what this universe stands for! Go to Red Letter Media.com; Mr. Plinkett's reviews will open your eyes to the crap that the Star Wars franchise has unfortunately become. Still don't believe me, then why did you pay to see Jar Jar in 3D? Who's the idiot now? *looks at you with a frown*
Definition of a retard from Webster's dictionary: To make slow; delay the development or progress of (an action, process, etc.); hinder or impede.
E-yup, that's you if you like the prequels after watching Red Letter Media on YouTube, and you still don't believe me. It's not derogatory or my belief, its a simple fact! The Star Wars prequels are the biggest load of dog terd in the entire universe of films. Ever. If you thought that Teen Titans on Cartoon Network was a bad idea, and a show meant for little kids, at least in this world; the characters actually make you feel something for them, you care about the relationships they form and break with each-other, and there were some very powerful moments, plus there was good action that carried a purpose to what they were fighting for. AND, they stayed really close to the comics. Can you say any of these things about Star Wars?
Everybody in the prequels to Star Wars was a cardboard cut out, and George even went away from what made his first saga so great. There is no emotion, no love or tension, nothing but a dull back-story that I never understand why anybody even fights each-other; except that the bad-guy has a red lightsaber, so the other people use green and blue lightsabers. Pathetic, a gimmick if you ask me where even the back story to Vader was turned into cat piss. I rest my case; if you like the prequels you are either a really young child, or you do not seem to care about the actual meaning to Star Wars.
Favorite Heroes of all time:
1.) The Batman (aka) Bruce Wayne. Without this guy, DC comics would just not be the same. (The title stands for Detective Comics anyway.) I prefer him over Superman because Bruce is from Earth after all, and he's not a space alien that can defy the laws of gravity and still uses his wits about him to overcome evildoers. My dad likes Superman, but I prefer the bat due to his detective skills and putting the pieces together. Clark Kent has one too many things going for him, making me see him as a superhero, but it kind of looses my interest, because his only weaknesses are Kryptonite or magic, and he doesn't have to deal with countless villains like Bruce has to at the same time. The Dark Knight's character in the comics is truly believable, it also shows if you have an unlimited amount of resources and money, you can do just about anything. Batman is able to do remarkable things, he is considered one of the greatest detectives of all time, and he has some really cool gadgets. True, he's a multi-billion dollar playboy that can afford to be a watchful protector. But still, he's the Dark Knight!
2.) Raven (aka) Rachel Roth from The Teen Titans. She is one of the greatest heroines in DC comics, she has such a powerful back-story and helped to form the Teen Titans in the beginning. From teleportation, to being an Empath, or her ability to toss objects at a whim, and the fact of her powers growing twice as potent when the darkness from her father is embraced. I'm very glad that the creators of the show decided to incorporate her, and use Tera Strong as the voice actress.
3.) Sterling Archer. From the FX television show, this secret ISIS spy brings all the kick-ass to any problem, that James Bond or Jason Born wished that they could. It's like of Charlie Sheen were a top secret agent, that's pretty much the gist of his character, where the entire supporting actors and actresses meld the entire show into one AWESOME program to watch! Jon Benjamin as the voice actor really nails out the dialogue, and he always brings a new level of humor to the stage. Krieger, the head of the lab like Agent 'Q' in Bond is my second favorite character on this show.
4.) Luke Skywalker. No doubt about it. He started off as a simple farmer looking to go on an adventure, then to avenge his family and friends. Low and behold that very adventure would shape him into becoming a Jedi Knight. It's one of the most classical protagonist themes, of all time right here!
5.) Wolverine (aka) Logan from the X-Men and Marvel franchise. Everything about this guy just screams pure and total EPICNESS! I wonder if every time Hugh Jackman wakes up in the morning, he roars in anger like he does in those movies? X-D Such a great hero, with so much depth behind the character, and the way he became the mighty hero was from a military experiment. Funny, if I were the guy putting the adamantium into his body, I would keep a giant magnet that could pick up his entire body close at hand; so he would not have anyplace to run off to, if he decided to break out. Why don't super villains ever think about the obvious?
6.) Tim Drake (aka) Robin (aka) Red Robin. When I fist saw The New Batman Adventures as a little kid, I was hooked. In truth, this was where I learned about Tim Drake. Nightwing was also a favorite of mine too, but I think Tim incorporated the best of all the sidekicks to the Dark Knight. He was the third one and really shined above the others for Bruce. Jason Todd was the second. I highly recommend you watch 'Under The Red Hood' if you can. It tells the story of what happened to the second Boy Wonder; after Dick left to create the Teen Titans.
There you have it, simple, quick and rather brief I think. Anytime you receive a review or get a message from me where T.M.O is at the bottom. If you couldn't figure it out, well it's my signature/ pen name. I was really quite lucky to pick this name for myself on the site. Later days dudes and dudetts! ;-)
