This blog is an inspiration from a fellow friend and blogger, who is mad about all things “superhero”. I recently read her column on five people she wished were real – and her friends, so I thought I’d contribute to the idea and add my own top five.
This is a woman you wouldn’t want getting on your bad side. She has a dark history – she’s a killer, a murderer of women and children, and has always fought her internal demons, so once she turned towards the greater good, there was always that fear she’d return and play alongside evil.
If I lived in Ancient Greek times, I’d want Xena to be my best friend. She’s a protector, a confidant, and has a sense of humour so long journeys from country to country would be quite amusing.
Okay, I lie. I want to BE Xena. So just stick my face on that body, give me those “many skills”, and I’d gladly die fighting the warlords if I had to. As long as my name was Xena.
Sexy, stylish Nikita always looks great in any pair of sunglasses, and if I was framed for murder, I’d be pretty careful who my friends were.
Despite not having much of an outside life, I could pretty much keep her secret of being a hired assassin. Nikita’s really well styled, so I’m sure her fashion sense would rub off on me and I’d be a fashionista like no other. A make up lesson or two from her wouldn’t hurt either, but I think I really would need to sit down with her for a chat about that Michael bloke – the girl needs some serious relationship advice.
She’s the original TV Nikita, and I refuse to watch the new one. There’s only one Nikita to be my friend, and she’s pretty hardcore when it comes to action packed protection.
Okay, so I’ve been in love with the Gambit character for years. Since I was 13, if I can recall correctly, so you can imagine my squeals of delight when he was finally introduced into the X Men movies.
There’s just something about that Cajun accent he carries that makes the sound of his voice very romantic.
Take me to the casino with this swamp boy, ’cause he can win me a fortune – and it’ll be exciting, as it won’t be done legally or morally right. When I sit at the poker table, Gambit is one mutant I want sitting right next to me, teaching me the ropes of the high rollers. Partying with him would be quite the adventure too…party for two? Yes please.
So I may not have many spirits I need to connect with, but Melinda’s a really good person who cares about everything and anything. She’s definitely on my list of who I’d want to be a good friend with.
Melinda is all about listening and helping, and she’s a family woman married to a good looking firefighter/paramedic so we share great taste in men. That wardrobe is pretty killer too, and being my best friend, I can see a swap of clothing every now and then instead of hitting the shops for new items.
I’m sure being my bestie, I’d get a really good discount on those antiques she sells…but despite not being able to see ghosts, I can be her sidekick battling the evil world of the Shadows and helping her research the history and backgrounds of the dead.
Everyone needs a crazy, psycho friend who you can vent to and help you seek revenge if you need it. Callisto’s just the perfect blonde for this sort of friendship, and she certainly won’t knock any sense into you. In fact, she’ll persuade you to get all that anger out and do something illegal – who’s up for a killing today?
As Xena’s arch nemesis, it doesn’t make any sense that I want to BE Xena and have Callisto as a friend – but this blog doesn’t make much sense, so I’m just going with the flow.
Callisto will gladly train me up to be her apprentice and heir to the Queen of Evil title. If I could have a psycho bitch girl in my life, she’d be it…someone I could always rely on to do the dirty work with me.
So, that’s my Top 5. Thanks to Mandy for the inspiration of this…you can find Mandy here to check out her pick of the bunch - http://mandyontheweb.blogspot.com/
