Running Errands and/or Fighting Crime

You decide which fits your image of me better. Point is, I’m outta here for now. Catch you later.

Don’t see you much as the “take down a guy with a gun” or “hunt a thousand clues to expose the corporate vampire” kind of guy.

You fight your fights against evil in a more sociological fashion. So, given the choices, I’m going with shopping.

@ Scorpy: One of the superheroes in the book I’m writing does. He makes cool gadgets and giant supersuits and uses them to stop crime dramatically.

@ Our Lord Host, May His Name Be Praisèd: I think I just saw you on the news as a giant pink rage monster called The Kitten Setting, pounding an annoying, purple-skinned guy with a big scary gauntlet called RSHD in front of the Empire State Building while dudebros on flying jet skis fought Loki in the streets. Plus, I think that the Avengers are too busy suing your alter ego for copyright infringement to actually save anybody.

Praise the Mallet! Scalzi ftagn!

San Francisco’s having the second annual Superhero Street Fair today. Costs $10 to get in if you’re in costume, $20 if you’re dressed as Clark Kent. So if you were out here, you could easily be running errands dressed as a superhero.

And as far as the dude who said real superheros don’t have bald spots goes, why do you think so many of their costumes cover their heads? (An entirely shaved head is also an option, but that’s usually for Villains instead.)

“” (An entirely shaved head is also an option, but that’s usually for Villains instead.)””

Why? Do DC and Marvel cartoonists have a hair fetish? Why not a bald super-hero? ” ‘The Dome’, fighting crime and shining as he does it. His secret identity as a barber at Quantico is the ideal base for rooting out corruption. ”

Okay, yeah, this is gonna take more coffee…

HOW DO YOU KNOW THAT, SCORPY????? Huh? Maybe they modded him while he was out–that would explain the inhumanly fast backwards dodge he makes in the end of the pilot.

Also, he’s a superhero. He shot Loki Lie-smith, Norse god of treachery and deception, with a supermegabadsupra-awesome fire gun. He counts.
