About Warren Kantor

Warren Kantor
A fan of most things pop culture related, from movies, to TV, to gaming, to comics and everywhere in between. A great lover of superheroes since my family bought me my first Spectacular Spider-Man issue in Umhlanga over 2 decades ago, having seen almost all animated series, movies and live action films produced by the BIG TWO from the 90's onward. My favourite hero from marvel is everybody's friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man and from DC it's a 3 way split between Batman-Superman-Green Lantern. Favourite Marvel villains are Green Goblin, Doctor Doom and the Mandarin. "Do you hear that Iron Man 3!!!!" >:( . Favourite DC villains include Joker, Two-Face, Clayface, Lex Luthor, Brainiac, Darkseid, Sinestro and more. Can happily read anything written by Geoff Johns any day and everyday. Give me superhero movies and TV as well and watch that smile grow larger than Galactus. Been playing video games since the flea-market Nintendo cartridge days, through Sega Mega Drive, Playstation, PS2, PS3 and now PS4. Seen over 2,200 movies throughout my life and nowhere near done. Barry Ronge, Siskel and Ebert...eat your heart out boys. Also a huge fan of Pro Wrestling in all it's forms for 20 years, and a passion that consumes most of my days. Throw in some NBA on the side, a latent need to cook and a love of art with a just a pinch of writing and you begin to weave together the tapestry that is my life. Or make that the recipe that is the gluten free side dish that is my life. What tapestry will we weave together next and will you have room for seconds?
