One of the primary characters in Boku no Hero Academia (aka My Hero Academia) and mentor to the series protagonist. He is voiced by Christopher Sabat (Vegeta/Piccolo) in the dub, and he is AMAZING.

I'd comment on this but I'd get angry and abusive. Not towards you, but to the people who butchered DC's Shadow comic.

IIRC this version wasnt Cranston.Actually,Cranston turns out to the villain killing Shadows agents.He survived and rebuilt his empire under a different name while Shadow adopted his name and life because they looked the same.Spoiler for a 30 year old comic,I know.
Btw after Chaykin,Helfer took over and things go into self parody mode.Black comedy,almost slapstick mode.

If I remember right, it wasn't a robot suit. It was his head on a robot body. And yes, I'd like to forget about that.

The thing is, there are two different versions of the Shadow. The radio version wasn't violent at all, and didn't wear a costume. He didn't need one, because he was always just an invisible voice. And if a bad guy died it usually was their own fault.

The pulp version is the one that the comics (and Alec Baldwin movie) versions are based on, and he's always used guns. But he didn't always kill the bad guys.

But my main gripe is that the comics (and movie) usually have the Shadow actually being Lamont Cranston, which was only true of the radio version. In the pulps, the Shadow was someone else completely different (Kent Allard), who just happened to look like Cranston. The real Cranston let him borrow his identity when he was out of town.

The Shadow doesn't work at all in a modern setting. I'm not sure that Doc Savage would, either. Surprisingly, there have been a few modern era Green Hornet comics (featuring the original's descendants), and most of those actually worked. (I loved the NOW Comics series.)

Linkara reviews first 4 episodes of JoJos bizarre adventure.

I think the series itself acknowledges that Danny Rand is pretty stupid and immature,in a number of occasions
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
My only consolation on his case(beside Colleen Wing) is trying to think of him as the  Michelangelo of the team through Danny=brat X10. Perhaps it would be better if he and Luke would share a series together,I dont know.

While I can't watch most of his movies today, there are still bits I laugh at. Once upon a time I loved his and Dean Martin's movies (together and apart), along with those of Abbot and Costello, Laurel and Hardy, The Marx Brothers, The Three Stooges...

Boku no Hero academia is a great anime. Plus its superhero themed!
I found it to be the most mediocre shounen series ever.But thats probably just me.
