Happy Valentines to My First Husbando

My husbando Serpentor

Husbando refers to a fictional male character from non-live action media (i.e. anime, video games, manga, etc.) to whom one is attracted to. Since Valentines Day is here I thought it might be fun to write about my very first husbando.

A husbando is usually a male character from the world of anime, however, mine is from an American cartoon. (Even though the series was animated in Japan)

So who is this male animated character that caught my attention and my heart when I was about 8 or 9 years old? It is non-other than the almighty Serpentor, emperor of Cobra!

None, may challenege Serpentor!

My introduction to Serpentor came from the G.I. Joe cartoons I’d watch every day before school. His voice, his exotic outfit, and his signature “This I command!” captivated me. No matter how many times he lost to G.I. Joe, he was still my hero! I owned most of the toys including my beloved Serpentor and his air chariot. When I received the Cobra Terror Drome for Christmas I took this picture.

The Joe’s don’t stand a chance against my team of Cobra!

In my make-believe world G.I. Joe could never defeat my husbando, Serpentor. G.I. Joe: The Movie is still one of my favorite animated films. (I bet some of you are even singing the opening theme song…c’mon admit it!) At least for me, Serpentor reigned supreme throughout the entire movie, and yes he did kill Duke.

R.I.P. Duke…I don’t care what was overdubbed at the end of the film

My first husbando reigns in his classic look

In the comics, Serpentor has gone through many incarnations and even resurrections. However, it’s his classic look that continues to catch my eye and my heart.

Last year Sideshow Collectibles & Prime-1 Studio released a limited edition statue of Serpentor! He is 32 inches his massive glory and gorgeousness! Yes, I bought one because what kind of woman doesn’t buy the perfect statue of her first husbando?

In case you’re wondering, a man will call his fictional anime wife or lover a waifu.

Lady Deadpool?! Oh the WHOR-ER!!

Lady Deadpool Male

R.I.P. Deadpool. Your unconventional ways have earned you mainstream popularity and now you’ve become just another…*groan*… gimmick. Actually, that would be your gender-swapped counterpart Lady Deadpool.

It’s the beginning of your end and to kick off your demise Marvel is giving you a…*drum roll*…female counterpart! Because as we all know, every popular male comic book character MUST have a female counterpart. (e.g. Superman/Supergirl, Spiderman/Spider-Girl, Hulk/She-Hulk…see what I mean)

So who is Lady Deadpool?

 Why it’s none other than…Shatterstar?!

or is it the X-Force super villain Gideon!

Lady Deadpool is a woman. So it’s probably Avengelyne.Lady Deadpool Avengelyn

Considering the fact that Lady Deadpool was created and drawn by Rob Liefeld, I think it’s safe to say that all of the above are correct. Most of you are probably scratching your heads and wondering what in the world am I talking about. I can’t explain it and I’m not going to try. (Just Google his name…’nuff said)

I wonder if Lady Deadpool will be as mouthy as her male counterpart? Ooooh…or better yet, make her the complete opposite, and maker her mute! Ahhhhh!
LadyDeadpool Snake eyes
By golly that’s it! She’s G.I. Joe’s Snake Eyes with a ponytail and breasts! Sometimes I’m so clever, I’m ashamed of myself.
