Hey guys!

I'm in charge of a Superheroes vidshow for VidUKon this year! My aim is to make it awesome. So obviously I'm going to ask all you awesome guys to help me create a shortlist of vids to include.

My goal is to root it in self-identified Superhero stuff but also to reach out to other things that don't necessarily self-identify as capes and costumes heroics, but clearly draw on those archetypes.

So I'm soliciting any and all suggestions!

Though I'd be super, super grateful for suggestions that aren't for either Marvel or DC because that's a lot easier to find.

To help this process, I brainstormed some fandoms that fit under either "Actually Superheroes!" or "Oh Come On, They're Superheroes!" I want to try and make sure that the latter category isn't just "action heroes", so feel free to question, challenge or suggest stuff in the comments even if you don't have a specific vid to rec (though obvs, omgs, I hope you do!)

Actually Superheroes!
DC (duh)
Marvel (duh)
Kick-Ass
Watchmen
Hancock
Krrish
Judge Dredd

This list is as complete as I can make it, so if I've missed something PLEASE let me know!

Oh Come On, They're Superheroes!
Commander Shepard
Olivia Dunham
The Avatar (as in The Last Airbender and Korra)
Buffy Summers
Lara Croft
Ghostbusters
Blade
Jedi characters in Star Wars
Xena
Knight Rider

This list is both arbitrary and incomplete and mostly designed to act as a starting point. I'd also note that the focus of vids in this list will probably matter more. Wonder Woman is always going to be identified as a superhero. A vid about Buffy could focus on a lot of things other than her superheroic attributes.

My first thought for a Buffy vid is actually a Slayer ensemble, Scarlet Ribbons. Or shinyjenny's Hope on Fire?

If you have trouble finding a Buffy vid and want one, I have a vid in the works that might fit. If you're interested we can PM about it maybe?

Ugh, I wish I knew of more Xena vids, but searching always fails me. All the Xena vids I know of are shipper vids, haha.

Heroes the tv show! Basically a Superhero universe I mean. They have superpowers and the show is called Heroes.
For a superhero themed show, one of these Hiro+Ando vids might work: My Hero by bradcpu and Sawatte Kawatte (Touch! Change!) by laurashapiro

I'm not sure if these are of any use, but i've downloaded some superhero vids over the years - these are some of my favourites:

Boppy did a great Smallville vid about Green Arrow, which also includes cameos from the Smallville proto-JLA - Aquaman, Black Canary, Flash, Hawkman, and so on.

Jagwriter has a great Huntress vid from the short-lived Birds of Prey series called "Somewhere I Belong".

It's probably a bit long, but you did mention Blade - Balistik made a good Blade vid to Rob Zombie: Exterminating Son" Alternatively, he did a really good vid called Anarchy that makes some interesting comparisons between the Crow, V for Vendetta and the Joker...

Would Mr Anderson's Iron Man vid be a good one to show? I know it's more about Tony stark than it is Iron Man, but it is very cool.

I would keep hunting around, but the Walking Dead episode just finished downloading and... well, zombies.

You would know better than I WHAT vid but Sarah Connor Chronicles?

Also, Pacific Rim? (That Level Up vid might be good for that.)

I'll keep thinking.

Hmm, how about Dark Angel? Alas, this is probably a completely unhelpful comment as looking at my downloaded vids they're all about relationships or the non-superheroey aspects of the show, but there's a lot of vids out there - I'll keep thinking.
