Your dose of slow-motion heavy metal comic book radness

Because when your team walks in slow-mo into battle, you gotta have wailing guitars.

There's only one thing that could make that scene any more badass: Ninjas.

Or Ninja Pirates from Space. With dinosaurs.

I love the slo-mo bad ass walk as much (and possibly more) than the next guy. But a still frame of one just doesn't have the same impact...

Besides after the one involving a plush puppet from the final season of Angel all other slo-mo walks became redundant...

They got nothin' on Molly Hatchet, man. check it:

Dude, Dave, that picture is totally Airwolf.

luke said...

If you're walking really slow, you need some doom metal. Like, Candlemass or something.

"You are Beeeeeeeewiiiiiiiiiitched!" DUN DUN DUN DUNDUNDUN!

Verily, the Guitar Gods smile upon the Thunderbolts. Is that Steve Vai back there in the heavens, playing his guitar with his tongue?

Michael said...

Just to pull you guys back into nerd-o-rama for a minute, the slomo parade at the end of the 'JLA' episode of Smallville had it all: Most notably the assploding building in the background which is a prerequisite of all bona-fide half-cranked struts.

Doc said...

A couple of things:

1) Lestat (if that is your real name), ninjas and pirates are mortal enemies. How could one be both a ninja and a pirate without dueling himself to death?

2) The slo-mo walk theme song is "Tom Sawyer" by Rush. The modern day warrior with the mean, mean stride. I thought this was covered already.

3) Now that I think of it, has anyone ever seen Slash and the Mad Hatter together? I didn't think so...

The intro to 'Turn up the Radio' by Autograph could be the soundtrack to the Thunderbolt's slo-mo walk. Vrooooom...dun dun dun dun da DUN dun dun dun dun da DUN....

The T-Bolts are a lot cooler as refromed villains. What will Mach-5, Blizzard, Atlas, and Speed Demon do now? Couldn't have Marvel's 'Suicide Squad' been a different book? And wasn't one of the cool things about 'Suicide Squad' that anyone could die at any time? Who really believes they'll kill off Venom, as much as he deserves it?

The Doc said...

That is, as has been said before, unbelievebly Airwolf. But my spine hurts just looking at Moonstone. Seriously, honey, it might look sexy to swing your hips that way, but if you keep walking like that you'll develop scoliosis.

BerwynIrish said...

That slow-mo group walk is such a cheesy cliche that the only metal that would serve it justice is Great White.

I'm not convinced that they're moving in slow-mo. They could actually be in the first half of that other camera-speed cliche where the film starts off in hyper-speed before abruptly switching to slow-mo.

Gabriel Villa said...

Were are the radio controlled sharks armed with rocket launchers? That would be cooler then ninjas. Particularly in slow mo.

James said...

the two women have the same pose, except their legs are in different stages of the walk, so someones hips should be going the other way.

tenefis said...

It would really make my day if someone has collected all of the slow-mo march shots into one place.

For example, New X-Men...

Michael said...

The last time I saw a woman with hips that swung as far out as Moonstone's it cost me a Canadian $20 approximately every 3 1/2 minutes.

She's walking like they're connected to the base of her spine with a blender motor.

Speaking of super-villains...

Justin Garrett Blum said...

Wow. I had no idea how freakin' awesome that panel was until just now.

luke said...

>>2) The slo-mo walk theme song is "Tom Sawyer" by Rush. The modern day warrior with the mean, mean stride. I thought this was covered already.


Just like Kerry Von Erich!

Doc said...

Good call, Luke. In fact, if any of them take out an opponent with a discus punch, I'll be a fan for life.

Garbriel, I thought the sharks were supposed to have frickin' laser beams...

Word verification of the day: "kpoxsl", which I believe can be used as an antidepressant or to stave off baldness. Or both.

I'm with Michael -- what the hell is wrong with Moonstone's hips?

Gabriel Villa said...

it seems that Captain America is dead! Anyone confirms?

http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories/C/CAPTAIN_AMERICA?SITE=PASCR&SECTION=HOME&TEMPLATE=DEFAULT

yes! Laser Beams... but rocket launchers are better!

Moonstone looks like she has hip displaysia. Maybe she part labrador retriever.

Also they needed 6 people to take out Jack Flagg?

Juggernaut said...

The editors at Marvel have lost their minds.
