Marvel Paradise,
(sung to the tune of Gangstas Paradise)

by Jaelle


As I walk through New York in the shadow of death
I take a look at the heroes and realise there aren't many left!
Cos we've been blastin' and fightin' so long
All cos Professor Xavier's mind had gone.
But I have never met a villain as powerful as Onslaught,
A mutant with 'tude, from Marvel this con you bought.
We better watch out our thinkin', and when we're winkin'
Or a well-placed blow will leave us all blinkin'.

I really hate the hype but I gotta hope
As he talks we see his hand through the driftin' smoke, fool.
I'm the kind of hero little fanboys want to see fight
With my claws and my guns and my costume so tight.

Been spendin' most our lives, livin' in a Marvel Paradise
We've all died and come back twice, livin' in a Marvel Paradise
That's cos we're the good guys, livin' in a Marvel Paradise
We're proud and dignified, livin' in a Marvel Paradise

Forget the situation I am here facin'
I can't live a normal life, I was born with a gift
So I gotta be here with the X-Team
Too much bigoted hatred got me followin' dreams

I'm a well-trained hero with might on my side
Got a mask on my face and spandex on my hide
Death ain't nothin' but a psi-bolt away
I'm livin' life do or die now, what can I say?
I'm twenty-three now but will I ever see twenty-four?
The way things are here that'll be in 2064.

Tell me why are we too dumb to see
That the one we're fighting has invulnerability?

Been spendin' most our lives, livin' in a Marvel Paradise
We're all costumed with firm thighs, livin' in a Marvel Paradise
Boy or girl we all wear tights, livin' in a Marvel Paradise
They're a pain and itch in fights, livin' in a Marvel Paradise

Power responsibility, responsibility and power
Lecture after lecture, hour after hour
Avengers all are jumpin', but one of em's a mutant
What's goin' on with their bailing? I just don't know what's happenin'
They say they gotta go, and now they all are gone
But they'll be back real soon in Heroes Reborn!
It's won't be cheap! It won't be sick.
It's a gimmick, that's why I know their sales are out of luck, fool.

Been spendin' most our lives, livin' in a Marvel Paradise
You'll spend your fanboy lives, livin' in a Marvel Paradise
We sell books and merchandise, livin' in a Marvel Paradise
At incredibly inflated price, livin' in a Marvel Paradise

Aaaaaaaaaaaahhhh...
