Thor Faces a Minecraft Creeper
Thor versus a Creeper...Who would prevail?
I'm afraid the Creeper came out on top at our house over the weekend. My husband and I offered to take the kids to see "Thor: The Dark World," but our younger son preferred to stay home and play Minecraft.
It would be utterly pathetic to have to hire a babysitter in order to go see a superhero movie designed for small boys.
I blame the "Super Hero Squad" TV show for much of Ansel's dislike of the Thor character. In that series, Thor is mostly comic relief: a long-haired girly-man with a funny accent who likes to admire himself in the mirror. Ansel tells me the problem is not really Thor, however: he just doesn't like the Avengers "separated." Meaning, the Avengers movie was OK, but none of that Iron Man, Hulk, or Thor stuff.
I think the problem might be that the preview on TV was a little scary....
But those Creepers can be scary also.
