“Favourite Superhero” may seem like an odd name for a post on a horror lovers site, but I swear it’s horror related. I’ve been watching a lot horror shows and films lately and thinking about superheroes. There are many out there: Batman, Superman, Catwoman and the rest of the bunch, but while I love Christian Bale as Batman, I am much more for horror superheroes. In every horror movie or show, there is a protagonist and/ or superhero, and while many of them I like, I do have a favourite. The feminist in me must root for a woman, and oddly enough, my favourite superhero is a woman, but not solely based on the fact that she’s female. She and I share some qualities: we’re both short, blonde, weird, tough, strong, determined, and neither of us put up with other people’s bullshit. She is definitely stronger than me though, and fights vampires, along with demons and occasionally humans. Her name is the title of her tv show, which was on the air for seven years. If you’re a true horror fan, you already know who I’m talking about: Buffy the Vampire Slayer. The show is one of the greatest horror shows ever made- few shows have ever measured up to Buffy. I have all seven seasons on dvd and have watched every episode at least a dozen times I would say. I love the drama, the comedy, the romance, and of course, the horror. The happy moments make me happy, and the sad moments made me sad. What I love (probably more than I should) is when Buffy kicks the shit out of people (and creatures), because they always, if not almost always, deserve it. She’s tough, and she can survive anything, even death (she died twice and came back both times). Buffy is my favourite superhero. She is not only the best female superhero, but the best of all male and female superheroes! Nobody can ever, or will ever, beat Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Who is your favourite superhero?
