The Crimson Blur Joins the Team!

Crimson Blur 12/24/2010 Reviews

In a world where danger could be around every turn, one boy wonder has vowed to protect it. A red and green blur dashes into the shadows keeping a watchful eye on the people he has taken responsibility for. A shiny yellow “R” stands out from the darkness, along with his belt. He looks for the signal in the sky…but before the legendary symbol can get his attention, he hears something far more threatening. “COLIN! THIS IS YOUR MOTHER! COME HOME FOR DINNER! YOU WERE SUPPOSED TO BE HOME BY DARK!”

I guess you could say I’ve always wanted to be a hero. I was dressing up as Robin after school and protecting my neighborhood from 1st to 3rd grade. In fact, my first words were, “Nana nana nana nana nana BATMAN!” I feel like I’ve been destined to do something superhero-related all of my life. My mother always says, “You came out of the womb excited about superheroes.” Hopefully you can see my passion, now let me tell you about what I want to do for this awesome site.

If I were to have my preference, I would love to be the official Smallville and Young Justice Reviewer. I have watched EVERY episode of Batman: The Animated Series, Superman: The Animated Series, Batman Beyond, Justice League, Justice League Unlimited, AND Teen Titans. Quite a few members of the same animation and writing team did all of those and are now working on Young Justice. I would be perfect for it!

I’m sure you can tell I’m a Smallville fan by my name and picture. I’ve seen every episode of every season multiple times. I remember being in 6th grade when it first came out and convincing my Dad to let me stay up and watch it. Smallville became a huge part of my life. I was fortunate enough to see the last Smallville panel at Comic-Con 2010. I was super excited because I was cosplaying Clark Kent/The Blur. I had an incredible girlfriend back then named Hayley. She was so awesome that she dressed up as Lois Lane for me! Unfortunately, nobody recognized her. But, it was still amazing! The energy was unlike anything I’ve ever felt.

That’s another thing you should know about me. I live in San Diego, California and I love it. So I hope you guys don’t mind the words ‘dude’, ‘chill’, and ‘gnarly’ because I definitely say them a lot. I also have my own comic series I’ve been working on, but more on that later. Much later!

So here’s to a new year, with a new writer to follow. You can count on fair and detailed reviews on all of your favorite shows, movies, and comics. The Crimson Blur is here to protect and entertain all of his fans!

    This guy is awesome! He really got me right from the get go. The way he explained his childhood story made me think he was about to unveil some new epic story. This is the first time Ive ever laughed at the Nana Batman joke from READING it. Maybe there is a new epic story coming out dude and it should be about you as an Official Reviewer. I enjoyed reading this article and I hope to read more in the future.

    Yup, sounds like a perfect job for you. I haven't seen most of the shows mentioned (I'm a Marvel man) but I'll look into the reviews. Its awesome that your making a comic book, I'm attempting to as well. Keep me updated on it. I'd like to know the orgins of the Crimson Blur and what his powers are.

  22. Todd B. Gruel 02/03/2011 at 1:04 pm

    "Dude," I can give you five "chill" reasons why the Blur is the "gnarliest" Hero to grace this wild planet:

    1) He saves damsels with his bares hands

    2) His costume colors are sexy

    3) His mode of locomotion is environmentally friendly

    4) He never curses, cheats, or breaks wind in front of the ladies

    5) Because I said so

    • Crimson Blur 02/04/2011 at 5:36 pm

      Hahaahah! You rock Todd, thanks so much!

  23. CyberneticBrains 02/09/2011 at 9:20 am

  27. CGC Lee 02/13/2011 at 2:16 pm

    Typing away after reading your bio I question why I am still at the computer and not ripping into the seasons of Smallville I have to get through. Being primarily a Marvel fan, or Marvelite as we were once called I stayed away from Smallville mainly for the reason I didn't think it was that good, I mean seriously who wants to watch Superman get told what to do….but through a good sale and at 19.99 a season…I got hooked.

    I purchase comic books first so it has been taking me awhile to get through the seasons and as money got tighter, my best friend purchased the rest. Unfortunately they are still sitting on the shelf wrapped like a collector's item. It is good to know though when I need to I will have someone to go to for any nuances I have missed.

  28. The Crimson Blur 02/13/2011 at 5:38 pm

    You can count on me CGC Lee! Very cool come around story by the way :) I know a lot of people who were hesitant of Smallville!
