is it possible to overdose on superheroes?


Thanks to DC’s invasion of the CW and Marvel becoming a powerhouse of big-budget superhero action movies, superheroes have become all the rage. Saturday has become superhero day for me as I binge-watch everything I missed during the week. But lately that’s changed.

I’ve fallen out of touch with Marvel. I haven’t even seen Doctor Strange yet, and I’m behind on S.H.I.E.L.D. I thought maybe it was (it was is vague) just a time thing. Life gets in the way of fangirling. But then the big superhero crossover event of the CW came…and went.

Aliens invaded Central City, people. And my reaction? Meh.

After years and years of fangirling over everything from the X-Men to the Avengers to Oliver Queen, I’ve finally overdosed. I’ve reached my limit. I might have to revoke my membership as a Fangirl Supreme. How did this happen? I’m panicking, people! I can’t turn in my fangirl card, and you can’t make me!

It’s overexposure. It’s the holiday blues. I blame Audrey Grey. I’m reading Shadow Fall and so engrossed in it that I just can’t fit my superheroes in. That’s all it is. I’ll get through it, I promise. Don’t take my fangirl card! Please tell me I’m not the only one! Say you’re struggling too! Give me theories!
