Definitely depth. Well said. When I write I try to make my protagonist real, so folks can remember them. Blade was our hero because he was a black assassin that killed white vampires lol j/k; but if they would have let him love his enemy, it would have brought much depth to his character. Okay enough ranting I just can't talk to my wife about vampires and Blade because she has no interest haha; so I enjoyed our little chat. Much blessings sister.

I agree. Even a tortured soul needs love, good stuff. I think that is the critic with Hollywood nowadays. They write for action over story. Blade could have been both if they would have let him embrace the side of himself that he hated. =)

Great meeting you Linda. I actually thought Blade II was the best of the series, but I was disappointed that the writers didn't want to give a brother Nyssa. lol I mean Superman got Lois Lane, Spiderman got Mary Jane Watson even Batman got Vicki Vale, but they couldn't give Blade Nyssa? Man that was just a sad ending. If I would have written the script Wesley Snipes would have gotten an Oscar lol. Because I would have made the ending powerful, but I can understand if they stayed true to the comic books. =)

DC's answer to the film 'Black Panther' should be 'Icon'!  Starring Denzel Washington as Augustus Freeman and either Zendaya or Amandla Stenberg as Rocket,  'Icon' is the story of how an alien crash lands in a cotton field in 1839 and adopts the appearance of the first person that comes into contact with it being a slave woman.  He lives through American history leaving behind a legacy as his next begotten's namesake arriving in the present day as August Freeman IV.  Convinced of his otherworldly abilities to better his race by a teenager name Rocket,  Augustus Freeman becomes the superhero 'Icon'.

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
