Last night I re-read Identity Crisis for todays post but today I find out that I am unwittingly turning into a Super-Villain. Shocking, I know. You’ve been here. You’ve read my stuff. Sometimes it’s kind of funny but more often than not it’s kind of lame and not that informative so you go read Progressive Ruin, and Double Articulation or you head for laughs at Beaucoup Kevin, The Absorbascon, or Dave’s Long Box.
Well I showed them.
I managed to kill two – TWO – whole super-heroes without even trying. In fact I kind of woke up, got some coffee, avoided getting splashed on the way into work by asshole drivers, and fired up the computer to read some blogs while I drank my coffee. Turns out I managed to kill The Thing and Manhunter.
Woo hoo! Go me!
I’m quite thrilled by this. I’ve been thinking about changing careers. My life in politics is generally dull and frustrating. I think going toe to toe with a few super powered do-goodniks will be a refreshing change. Right now I sort of deal with people who can’t really string together sentences in e-mails and generally think they can change the world by pointing out how evil and stupid I am on e-mail list-serves. Oh wait, I don’t think that’s going to change much if I enter into the world of super-villainy… well at least I have transferable experience.
Now that I’ve managed to kill off two heroes with my super-villainous powers of indifference and sarcasm I’m setting my sights on the next round of heroes.
The Thing - X
Manhunter - X
Firestorm: The Nuclear Man
Watch yer backs, I'm coming for you by not coming for you...huh? That's not a good catch phrase. Fuck it I'm still not buying the books.
