Delenda Est Carthago

Why not delve into a twisted mind? Thoughts on the world, history, politics, entertainment, comics, and why all shall call me master!

I plan on being the supreme dictator of the country, if not the world. Therefore, you might want to stay on my good side. Just a hint: ABBA rules!


Where memes come to die

Chris and Logan were nice enough to tag me with the damned superhero meme that has been going around, so I'll oblige. Every once in a while I have to geek out.

1.) If you could have one superpower, what would it be and why? (Assume you also get baseline superhero enhancements like moderately increased strength, endurance and agility.)

If I were a pervert, I'd naturally say invisibility. If I were a true superhero fanboy nerd (what do you mean, I am?), I'd say the ability to create spirit-proof glass jars (come on, comics geeks - you know what I'm talking about!). But I think the stretching ability of Mr. Fantastic, Elongated man, and Plastic Man is pretty cool.

2.) Which, if any, 'existing' superhero(es) do you fancy, and why?

My trifecta of X-Babes: Psylocke, Rogue, Dazzler. I have loved them since I was a teenager. Why? No matter who writes them, they are very cool and exotic. Interesting to chat with, and ridiculously hot.

3.) Which, if any, 'existing' superhero(es) do you hate?

Everyone picks Gambit, it seems (okay, three people), which would have been my choice, but I just think people have written Remy poorly and stereotypically. I have always hated Cyclops, but I don't want this to be a X-meme. Let's go with Superman. God, I hate him. He's boring and ineffectual. Lousy all around.

4.) What would your superhero name be? (No prefab porn-name formulas here, you have to make up the name you think you'd be proud to mask under.)

Well, since I have the stretching power, Stretch Armstrong! I'm sure the copyrights could be worked out ...

5.) For extra credit: Is there an 'existing' superhero with whom you identify/whom you would like to be?

Peter Parker. Well, not the new "I'm in the Avengers" Peter Parker, but the old one. He always had money problems and job problems, so I can identify with him, and then he got marry a hot model!

6.) Pass it on. Three people please, and why they are the wind beneath your wings.

I refuse. This is why memes come here to die. Most of the comics bloggers I regularly visit have done it already, and the ones that haven't ... well, I don't send along chain letters, and I'm not going to send this along. If you're reading this and want to do it, be my guest - I like reading memes, I just don't like sending them along. Sorry!

Haha, I get the Doom Patrol reference. Wasn't that the QUIZ from the BROTHERHOOD OF DADA? Anyway,
1) A "Hero of the Beach" halo.
2) Haha - Jack Phantom from Top 10!
3) Hal Jordan, because he ought to be the greatest fucking superhero ever in the best, most exciting comic book on the stands but he keeps getting written by fucking lame-ass hacks.
4) "the Spasm".
5) Flex Mentallo! the Sensational Character find of 1993! or maybe that punk alien kid Noh-Var that got kicked out of the Marvel Universe.

I was very close to naming Hal Jordan. He's lousy too.

It was indeed Quiz from the Brotherhood of Dada. You get a gold star!
