Unaware of the movie world I was happily spending my time by doing my job and well, doing yoga(I got quite proficient in it..I was even able to stand on my head) and then I used to cook and then got back to bed by 10 p.m. , ready for the next day. ..then I met my best friends of eight years after a long, long time- we lived in different cities(both of them are absolute retards, I must say..why, that you’ll get to know as you read on).
I met them and as usual we had plans to stuff our faces with delectable food and gossip about people we hate..while we were enjoying, they introduced me to the Marvel world..I had no clue about Marvel characters so they asked me to start reading the comics they recommended..so, one of them asked me to read Captain America first, but then the other one argued that I should start with Iron Man.
This conversation very easily changed into an argument..both of them argued about which comic is the ideal beginner one..the first one suggested Captain America because she wanted me to move ahead in a chronological order and the other one wanted me to read Iron Man first because she wanted me to build my interest first and then go ahead with the other comics..the argument then moved onto their favorite Avenger..the first one loved Black Widow and the other one loved Thor..and in the middle of these fools arguing, I was confused about what were they talking about.
I yelled at them to stop arguing and declared that I will read Marvel movies and watch Marvel movies according to my own sweet will(I wasn’t much of a reader, but decided to give comic reading a try)..to which they both had to reluctantly agree..then I went ahead and asked my other friends..all of them confused me even more and I just couldn’t resolve the issue..then once while surfing the internet about Marvel, I came across Marvel Encyclopedia..I thought of going through the encyclopedia, judge the character arc of all the Marvel comics and then watch and read them accordingly.
I got the Marvel encyclopedia and started reading it after my yoga classes…as I moved through the encyclopedia, things started to get interesting,I got indulged in it so much so that I had no awareness about what was going around me..I started missing my yoga classes..I started sleeping late, I even woke up till 4 a.m. to complete what I was doing and took a fake sick leave(I know it’s wrong but it was the first one in three years) to read in peace.
After reading the encyclopedia, I was so indulged in reading the comics that I didn’t even wait for a day and got all the comics that I could lay my hands on..and finally, I started reading the comics in a chronological order, I even saw the movies..I must say what an exhilarating experience it was to witness such an amazing variation of characters..just one thing bad happened to me in this process- my schedule got screwed up bad..really bad!
