Blast! I got meme'd.
Sparx over at SMIDSY hit me with this (and called me a computer geek the cheeky bugger!). This wasn't actually very easy for me as I didn't read "proper" comic books as a kid. I read the Beano and stuff like that, as did all my generation, I was subscribed to "Warlord" (there's a bit of nostalgia for you Keef) and later in life I discovered 2000ad/Judge Dredd which rocked (still does too, last time I looked). But I never got into DC or Marvel stuff, they just didn't float my boat. Any of you lot ever read the "Sand Man" graphic novels series? They were very good but I didn't read them till I was maybe 23.1/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.)I think I'd have to go with "stoneskin". Completely normal looking skin that is impenetrable to weapons/fire/cutting etc. Why? Because it'd be cool!2/ Which, if any, 'existing' superhero(es) do you fancy, and why?Umm is Jessica Rabbit a super heroine? No? I guess Catwoman's got mojo...3/Which, if any, 'existing' superhero(es) do you hate?I'm really not very keen on Superman, that whole "I put glasses on and no one can recognise me" thing is daft quite frankly.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.)I don't know why but "Chainmail" seems like it would be a good name at this moment, I may look at this post later and wonder what on earth I was thinking.5/ Is there an 'existing' superhero with whom you identify/whom you would like to be?Spiderman's pretty groovy if that counts?Pass it on. Three people please, and why.Hmm, who shall I pick on? Sounds like a job for Josh, Keef and my Dad. *Evil Chuckle*
Damn,Id have got away with it too if it wasnt for you pesky kids
I knew someone was going to say that...
Dammit, this is like the 3rd "Meme" I have been nailed with, and I suppose I will have to cough one up.
I have sullied my blog with just one meme and that was because it was a special occasion (and I'd run out of options on other things to do). Apart from anything else, a very good reason why I don't do memes is because they're not long enough to come down below the buttons and ads on the sidebar and this creates problems for the look of the blog. I know from experience that my posts have to be at least 500 words long to avoid this problem. My answers will appear below, therefore:
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.)
One superpower hey? I'll take the USA because it's the strongest.
2) Which, if any, 'existing' superhero(es) do you fancy, and why?
None. I know a good joke about superheroes fancying each other, however...
3) Which, if any, 'existing' superhero(es) do you hate?
I am not programmed to hate.
4) What would your superhero name be? (No prefab pr0n-name formulas here, you have to make up the name you think you'd be proud to mask under)
5) Is there an 'existing' superhero with whom you identify/whom you would like to be?
The Incredible Hulk, although I'd have trouble changing into him since I never get that angry. It'd be cool to be green, however.
Pass it on. Three people please, and why.
Huzzah! Huzzah I say! Thank you for validating my distaste for the meme, gone. :))
Doesn't anyone want to hear my superhero joke?
