X-Men…The Rock Opera?

Man, there are days when it’s just too much fun to be the RedEye’s resident comic book geek. Tonight I get to go see X-Men: First Class with a buddy of mine (read Matt Pais’ review HERE) and I just got news of a special promotion I’m going to get to do for my readers with the new Green Lantern film!

Oh yeah, and I did a bit of poking the hornets’ nest when I announced on Twitter that Batman IS NOT a ‘superhero’ by the definition of the term.  (See, you really need to have super powers to be a super hero. Batman IS a hero, an extraordinary one at that, but not a ‘super’ one in my opinion.) Boy, did that cheese a few fanboys off. :)

Anyhoo…being a comic geek also means I get to enjoy cool things like the Ray Wall Band‘s “The X-Men Song: A Super-Hero Rock Opera”.  Ray and I have been in touch for a while, ever since he debuted his band’s collection of “Comic Book Rock” tunes.  I got a real kick out of his “Fantastic Four Song” music video:

Now, with the release of the new X-Men film, he has a full-length ‘rock opera’ recorded celebrating the uncanny mutants from the Marvel Universe:

You can check out his other superhero songs over on iTunes! Also be sure to ‘like’ them on their Facebook page.

And finally, check back later when I give you my two cents about X-Men: First Class.

(I stick by my contention that Batman isn’t a superhero. Sorry.)
