He is mainly a combination of five real men, who must exist in a parallel universe *cough* I mean, four fictional characters.. At the end, I added some supplementary personalities :D, and characteristics.

The first component is Superman. When I was younger, I watched “Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman” starring Teri Hatcher and Dean Cain.  Here is a great quote that describes him well: “When I save a life, in that instant, I know two things that most people will never figure out: Why I’m here, and how I can make a difference.” That show constitutes my moral backbone.  Superman is the epitome of goodness; the Jesus of superheroes, if you will. Not to mention his strength, ability to fly and turn back time.

I used this picture because I enjoyed the movie and liked the way Superman was portrayed in it. You can't love Superman so utterly without his Clark Kent persona!

Which brings me to the second component: Marty McFly played by Michael J. Fox in the “Back to the Future” Trilogy.  That happens to be one of my all time favorite movies, considering that it combines my nerdy love of paradoxes, my love of happy endings, and my undying appreciation for one-liners, of which BTTF has plenty. Why Marty? Unlike Superman, who’s only flaw is that he puts everyone ahead of himself, Marty is flawed aplenty. His main problem is caring too much about what people think of him: “What’s wrong McFly? Chicken?” Even so, Marty learns from his experiences, which some say is the truest sign of intelligence. Besides that, Marty is just plain cool: “Yeah, what are you deaf and stupid? I said “NO”! He’s great with a skate-board/hover-board, can ride a horse, can play a wicked “Johnny B. Goode”, and he’s a great shot. And of course, he’s got Doc. Emmet L. Brown on speed dial. All in all, “He’s an absolute dream.”

Aaah...Twin Trails can make a girl's heart a'flutter.

Then there is Edward Mason Cullen, main brain candy for the YA phenomenon “Twilight”. As a fan of Twilight, I have to say that is one romantic guy. He’s in a league with Superman, and not only because he has superpowers. He is selfless like Superman, though only when it comes to his true love. But most of all, he only has eyes, body, soul, ears, breath…you name it, for his true love. Now, that is romance. The only critique I would have concerning Edward is his tendency to be a bit melodramatic, culminating in that stint with *spoiler* “I’m going to leave you because I want you to lead a normal human life.”

A vegetarian vampire, with the experience of more than a hundred years. Hes also saved his first time for his true love, and has a wicked sense of style.

Then there is Jack Dawson from “Titanic”, played by Leonardo DiCaprio. What can I say about Jack? He is adventurous, romantic, and brave. He’s also very clever. Case in point, when he saves Rose from her suicide attempt by…(you’ve watched it, the whole shoelace thing), and when they “fly” together. Here is a wonderful quote that sums him up pretty well: “Well, yes, ma’am, I do… I mean, I got everything I need right here with me. I got air in my lungs, a few blank sheets of paper. I mean, I love waking up in the morning not knowing what’s gonna happen or, who I’m gonna meet, where I’m gonna wind up. Just the other night I was sleeping under a bridge and now here I am on the grandest ship in the world having champagne with you fine people. I figure life’s a gift and I don’t intend on wasting it. You don’t know what hand you’re gonna get dealt next. You learn to take life as it comes at you… to make each day count.” (Btw, I think he could have found something else to float on…sheesh).

Now thats what Id call a great first kiss!

Now that's what I'd call a great first kiss!

To complete the line-up, I would have to add Jacob Black, who is another character from Twilight, just in case you have been living under a rock and did not know this. He’s got the superhuman werewolf thing (though I think Stephenie Meyer said it’s not really a werewolf) going, but I think he would fall into the Jack Dawson/Marty McFly category. Superman and Edward are somehow on a different level, and these guys, though perfect in many ways and surpassing in good qualities many a mortal, real man, are still more…down to earth? Jacob is very Earthy. He’s just a warm, happy person, and optimistic too. He broods too, but he gets over it quickly.

It was hard finding a picture of him with his clothes on. XD

A lot of these guys have qualities that I wish I had. They represent something I strive to be myself, and it is only when I feel happy with that, that the door is even going to be unlocked. Until then, mi corason is absolutely safe i a…safe.

New supplementary addition: Marcus Wright (Terminator Salvation) played by Sam Worhtington. That’s just the type of protective, never give-up qualities I like in a person. Boy, they get less and less human, don’t they? 😀

And of course, Takeshi Kaneshiro:

This is a picture of him from The House of Flying Daggers, but the first time I saw him was in Chungking Express, which I own :D
