I was reading the Da Vinci Code and one character that i really liked was Silas.  I can only use one word to describe him.  Baddassmotherfucka.  Although he is a social outcast and villainized throughout the novel, I find his character very appealing because he is an albino death dealer.  Strapped with a cilice (spiked belt wrapped around the thigh for the sole purpose of causing discomfort), he roams around slaughtering people to complete his religious missions.

Now it is true that I am a little sick to enjoy a character like this, but i feel like he would make a great comic book character.  Although after seeing Paul Bettany play Silas in the movie i must say i was a little disappointed.

This hardly seems like a badass at all.  He is way too scrawny.  In my head, I pictured someone that looks like this:

(yes this is cable)

Ahhhh…much better, straight up badass.  This is a guy i could see myself shitting a brick in my pants over if i ever had to confront.  Needless to say, arms that are 8 times bigger than your head usually does the trick.

I feel that having the condition of albinism is not so terrible.  Other than avoiding the sun at all costs, you can live a normal life.  I say it’s the closest thing to being a vampire, and who wouldn’t want to be a vampire.  According to the movie Underworld and Underworld Evolution, it is way better than being a werewolf or lycan.  If you have seen those movies you know what I’m talking about.  The werewolves live in the sewers while the vampires have this sweet mansion where they have sweet vampire parties where they drink blood till they pass out.  NOT to mention all those hot vampire chicks.  Lycan parties can be described as just the opposite.  They are so lame.  A complete and utter sausage fest by definition.  It’s not surprising that they’re always angry and flip out.

Sorry for that tangeant on vampires, I just had to get it off my chest.  Back to albinos.  Sensitive eyes and pale skin are small prices to pay to have cool red eyes.  Also you get to be WHITE!!!  There are a million perks that come along with that package.  See also:
