Memes and Comets

Memetics from Effay...

Example


Now I don't know a lot about superheroes and I don't really know what I like but, what the hell, it's not for charity...

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.)

The Silver Surfer's ability to make pretentious drooling and depressed wonder sound cool. This blog could use that kind of power. Being able to re-arrange matter at the molecular level would be cool too; think of the fun you could have on the bus.

Mostly, I'd quite like to have a tail.

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

The 'existing' thing threw me for a few days of intense self-analysis and Being-trauma but I guess it all comes down to:

Wonder Woman, as featured on the best-selling TV series of the same name. Yes, other superheroes are cooler, smarter, have better outfits but when Summer put on a WW costume for Seth in The O.C. it sparked a long suppressed residual memory of carrying a photo, cut out from the paper, of Lynda Carter in my Warlord special wallet when I was about 7.

Example


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

Captain Britain because I dressed up as him on the Silver Jubilee and only came second in the fancy dress to some fat kid who came as Winston Churchill. And because the hot day and street party shenanigans caused chafing that I'm sure is even now waiting to catch me unawares...

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.)

Loki's already taken so I guess something like: The Wicker Man (though, I guess me and the Torch wouldn't see eye to eye) or maybe Dendrite (special power something like Key23 in The Invisibles)

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

The Vision, because of what happened here. He gave me some decent advice....

Pass it on. Three people please, and why they're the wind beneath your wings.

Kek - because he's like an odd blog twin who likes the same things I do and I only really like people who like the same things as me. Character flaw, I know: I'm working on it...

Psychbloke - because nearly all the comics I've read have either come directly from him or at his recommendation. And because Effay didn't pick him and I know he's disappointed.

oh and someone told me he'd chucked in his job so I guess he'll have some time on his hands...

Blissblog - because no one ever sends him this kind of nonsense and I bet he feels really left out...

And for those people wishing I'd get back to posting freebies here's some songs that I think are really nice...

Comets On Fire - The Way Down


Comets On Fire - Graverobbers
