The Unforgotten

28 Jun

All these movies are coming out about all the superheroes. But there is one group they have completely skipped. A small, but spectacular group known as the “Awesome League”.. They weren’t your typical superheroes..more than anything, I believe their true “super power” was making people laugh. The humor that people would find  ridiculous and kid like, but the fact that these teenage boys acted the way they did, it was the senseless and innocent humor.

If they were to be matched up against Batman, my money would be on Batman, because he could easily own them with a punch, but it would be an interesting match. Batman does not have the courage that these boys had. Batman had 2 different identities…almost afraid to show who he truly was. But these boys wore their capes to school, around the neighborhood, to the stores, etc. The capes were a mark of symbolism. Showing their true colors, not hiding behind a mask. They weren’t afraid to be who they were.

Even though they did get annoying, they made me and many others laugh. Though they may never get their shot on the big screen, here’s to them for their “superhero” phase. Though it was only a tiny speck of the world that saw them, I’m sure they inspired maybe 3..ok 2..ok ok, maybe 1 person to be a hero like them.

    …and they introduced me to my lifelong appreciation of The Aquabats!

    Ha ha, this is fabulous. Though I must disagree on your bit about Batman being able to take them in a fight. It’s strange to think anyone appreciated us.
