LOL...I love that guy...
 
anyone who is part of a cult following is very cynical and picks it apart usually, because they are so use to it, they feel so involved that their opinion is is valid and absolute. I will even admit that as I have been a huge X-Men fan for over a decade, I am very cynical about the newer stories and characters

At the Comic Store

1- Most Comicbook store workers who are not the owner.

2- The Comic fan who's oblivious to everybody else in the store.

3- The comicbook store owner who's something of a comicfan and a reclusive A-hole.

4- The comicbook store owner who turned his shop into something that came from an episode of Hoarders

5- Any guy who's willing to sell a sideshow statue at it's highest and most ridiculous price and try his hardest to rip you off by busting your balls when trading in a product.

Online

1- Comic fans who asks the most stupidest questions

2- Angry Video Game Nerd inspired Comic fans

3- Trolls

4- Comic fans who uses big words or make alot of effort into making themselves look intelligent.

5- Comic fans who are easily Butt-hurt for the stupidest reasons, like their favorite character got killed off or something.

6- Die hard Superboy Prime fans

7- Comicfans who would spend a single day to argue about something completely stupid.

8- Comicfans who enjoy bragging about seeing an upcoming film.

Comic Con

1- That guy who acts like I just murdered his whole family or something.

2- That guy who keeps looking at my artwork to see if his is better.

3- That guy who showed up at a one-time event with the intent to make it the most miserable day of his life.

It's definately the ones that are over informative, who come of as rude when someone makes a mistake about characters , or events in comics, instead of being polite about the mistake. Yeah, people hit wiki pages, but they should never be persecuted for it, due to the fact that it's a legit source of info for the most part.

Jerry:How dare you everyone knows Dick Grayson is the best character after batman and who doesn't say that is an Idiot!!

Terry:Know Jason is better than both he would've gotten the cowl if the writers knew how to write."

Jerry: "That's so stupid they should've left him for dead in issue 427,or brought him back as black lantern.

In my opinion, I think that people who hate on others who decide they are a fan of something after they see the movies are just being elitist a~holes.

However the ones who have seen the movies only and act like they know everything about the character based on the movie alone are annoying.

This. If you take intrest in a character or comic book because you saw a movie and branched out into comics then good on you.

If you watched Batman and now claim he is the greatest thing since thin mints and don't own a single damn comic then shut yo mouth cause I could bury you alive in mine.

I also dislike some of the Storm fans "one in particular we all know who he is >_>" though I am a member of said fan base. Batman fans that create threads just to ramble about how great he is, any Thor fan who either claims he can beat Superman or post threads about him on the general discussion board "he has a forum use it", the people who decieded to call Hawkeye a rip off of Green Arrow just because he had gotten some recognition, and the many people who love to make threads and comment negatively on She-Hulks love life.

Partly because you're not the only Storm fan but also because its not just the Battles forums that you guys post on. I have never seen you post something that isn't related to Storm.

Anyway, the guys that irritate me the most are the ones that pretend they are comic book fans just because they have seen the films and watched the Big Bang Theory. Then they claim to have better knowledge about comic book characters and their abilities, grrr...

 You make at least a 1 Storm thread every other day.
on the first 3 pages of the Storm forum there are over 32 topics made about Storm by you.

I only created 2 threads in Storm forum for June.

Like what others have stated, the Storm fans are more vocal so the Storm threads usually get bumped a lot.

and besides, I'm fine with other posters also creating a lot of threads for their fave characters. I wasn't annoyed on a lot of take a point add a point threads at all. If it's what they want to do and enjoy doing, then why would I be annoyed? I always have the option to just ignore it, instead of posting negative to it.
