X-Men 4: The Last Lemonade and Cupcake Stand
Apete and I went to see X-Men 3 a while ago. A lot of people didn't like the movie, but I felt it had many explosions and people in crazy costumes with magical powers. I don't expect much more from an action movie. I found it interesting that Beast was never referred to by his superhero name. Apete tried to convince me that Hank McCoy's nickname was "Blueberry," which made him seem even cuddlier than he already was. Awwwww. He is like a big furry Sesame Street monster, but one that can TOTALLY kick your ASS.
As I was watching the movie, I started to think about what kind of super power I would have. I decided that it would be just my luck to be born with some mutation that would be of absolutely no use in a battle. Why are there all of these mutants endowed with the power to shoot fire out of their hands or crash through the sides of buildings? If I were a mutant, I would have the power to shoot rainbow sprinkles ("jimmies" if you prefer) out of my hands, similar to the way that Spider-man's mutation allows him to shoot webbing. Through sheer MIND POWER I would be able to change the color or flavor of the sprinkles I create.
I would probably not be very popular among mutants because I would be a liability on the battlefield: "Listen, everybody, let's stop fighting. Who wants a sundae? Aw crap, I'm on fire now! Hey, stop it!"
But I would be a big hit at the Annual Mutant Bake Sale!
