I'm doing this because I'm bored and must whet my insatiable appetite for superdudes discussion (don't ask)

Bruce Wayne Dead???: This is hilarious even after you know what went down. Boorishly's comment in particular is a keeper.

I found something on the internet {Lame Superheroes}: Hearing people try to justify Arm-Fall-Off Boy is funny, but I mostly bring this up because it seems like most of you folks, at least a couple years ago, haven't read All Star Superman yet? It's really good, I promise.

Justin Pierce is a douchebag: Holy shit, forget about superheroes, this is the best thread

Mostly I am doing this to laugh at the past

Like, say, the baber once posted this:
Quote:
boy i can't wait until iron man the movie, silver surfer the movie and hulk the movie get sent by an eccentric billionaire's will on a cross country race to drive the last nail in the superhero movie genre coffin


See it's funny because it's two years later and superhero films are probably even more popular than ever (arguably because of Iron Man)
Isn't that hilarious

hahaha oh wow
It took me a while to figure out what this thread was about, because the image went down, but two or three posts in I knew it was about the Rainbow Batman. I was like, "Ah man, that old chestnut?" but I guess it was like posted back in stone age when stuff like that wasn't considered so cliche.

Also it was kind of weird how I remembered the "what-if" scenario Forsyth made up (maybe from Wooo!pedia? I don't think I've read this thread before.) Also also I like how so many of these threads devolve into posting mostly facetious "what-if" scenarios, usually involving Batman.

Jesus christ, Stranger Dan, the hell is your problem with Jeph Loeb? Did he kill your parents or something?

Guys, you should have them switch Gorilla Grodd from the Flash's supervillain to the Green Lantern. Because this is a golden opportunity to get rid of all the dumb things you don't like about comic books. Like if Green Lantern is your dumbest superhero -- and you guys will have to decide that -- but if he is your dumbest superhero, then take all the dumb supervillains and all the dumb sidekicks and all the super-pets and everything else you hate, and then just put them all into one comic book. Then have Superman throw it far away into space so you never have to see it again, and you are left with only the good stuff.


BOORISHLY HOW DARE YOU IMPLY GORILLA GRODD TO BE IN ANY WAY LAME HE IS THE FINEST IN THE PROUD TRADITION OF MONKEY/APE SUPERVILLAINS AND OOOOOO!

Justin I am sorry about being mean about Batman in the past. It seemed like the thing to do at the time, but that is not an excuse I know.

What is your problem with Turkish Delights guys? I don't think they're that bad? They go down pretty well with milk.

Also what is up with the dude in this thread who keeps spelling baklava "baklawa"?

Oh god this is making me hungry.

In the comics there is the Wayne Foundation, which helps people on the street, as it were, but I doubt that's what you want.

Anyway, as mean as you were to Batman, you (and heck, everybody) were way meaner to Robin.

Also, it's kinda interesting that in these threads you usually approach superheroes from an ethical standpoint, rather than a moral standpoint which everyone else seems to do. If that makes any sense?

Also also, this wasn't really in Gentleman's Wednesday, but I just looked at the old Smallville thread! Still a classic!

That young Abe stuff has stuck with me for years and sometimes I mention it to people. I mean, really, it is such a great thing.

There was this episode of Smallville. Man. This episode where Pete comes back after like five years? A main character! He wins at basketball against Clark! That is really mysterious!

And he is like "hey Clark I am being strange worry about me please I am sticking a stick of gum into my mouth."

Clark investigates and comes upon a night club called "Stride". Stride, what an odd name for such a place! I will pay it no mind, Clark thinks. Well, it turns out that Pete is employed at this club or something? And oh my what is this there is kryptonite under it! I am sure that it will not effect any objects around because this place does not have any objects that would be routinely put in mouths or anything.

Anyway this former main character, that I'm sure the writers respect and like as a character and were so excited to have a chance to bring back, is just chewing away all episode. Until Clark learns the terrible truth! Stride used to be a gum factory! There are just pallets and pallets of gum in the back. This couldn't have been figured out by the numerous stride gum ads in the ad breaks! And now Pete is stretchy!

Clark I think engages in some sort of combat or saving people climax with Fallout Boy playing behind him in the club, and Pete tries to save people with stretchiness at one point but fails (I think Clark saves the person when he fails, though).

Pete leaves forever in shame.

That sounds almost exactly like the Elongated Man's gig! (Re: the whole stretchiness thing with the gum) Did he have a cameo in that, I wonder.

Heh um all that Young Abe Lincoln was taken from a real story I was writing probably three years prior to that thread. What I am saying is that there exists an actual document with much of that storyline committed to prose.

Coincidentally, I was just telling kfunque about it a few weeks ago.

In the wake of that thread, Steve and I talked a bit about the plot. He advised me not to include a time traveling Buckminster Fuller because that would be too crazy.

Wow, that was a completely depressing what-if scenario. I wonder why I made that up.

Yeah, it is pretty depressing. It makes you think, though. I'm kinda glad you posted it, actually.
