Beowulf 300

From Leonidas to Beowulf, every legendary hero needs to yell a lot. Wonder who would win in a shouting match.

Actually, if you string their catchyells together, you can make a coherent paragraph:

Considering that both Frank Miller (300) and Neil Gaiman (Beowulf) are comic book writers, I’m not surprised at all the yelling. Nothing like some loud shouting to pump adrenaline into the classics. For great justice!
