A Meme Interview with ME!

Look! A meme! I asked kalinara to give me five questions, which I will now answer!

Hey, it's a post. :-P

1. If you could resurrect any comic character who would it be?

Deula Dent. Because she has too much potential to be snuffed out to try and turn Jason Todd into a real hero. (My theory on where Countdown is heading with him.)

2. If you could ensure any comic character stayed dead, who would it be?

Jason Todd. He's an empty concept that only came about because Jeph Loeb decided to play the ultimate fake-out game with his readers in Hush and then Judd Winick stupidly decided it would be a good idea, which he didn't bother to explain until it came down to "Uh... magic punches!"

3. What comic character do you hate that everyone else seems to love?

Hawkman. Any of them.

4. What comic hero would you NEVER want to switch lives with?

Kyle Rayner. I have a hard enough time with my distance relationship with a girlfriend with cancer - I don't even want to think about having to deal with three dead girlfriends, a dead mom and the worst of my girlfriends coming back from the dead to annoy me with the fact that one of my teammates reimagined her into existence and that she was, quite literally, not the woman I fell in love with.

5. Should there be more dinosaurs in comics?

Yes. But there should be even more gorillas.


And here's the meme! If you want in, just comment!

1. Leave me a comment saying, "Interview me."

2. I will respond by asking you five questions. I get to pick the questions. (They probably won't be the same ones you see above!)

3. You will update your blog with the answers to the questions.

4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.

5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.


  1. Oh, yeah . . . this sounds like fun!
    Interview me . . . :)

  2. Sure, go ahead. I'll fit this meme in...

  3. 1. You can go out for a night of drinking and wenching with any male comic character of your choice as a wingman. Who do you choose and why?
    2. What one comic do you think everyone should be reading right now?
    3. Which would you rather be: a hero with the proportionate strength of a praying mantis OR the last lost noble prince of the undersea kingdom of Atlantis?
    4. You have an untrackable bullet, just like in the comic 100 Bullets. You have an opportunity to ensure that one comic creator of your choice will be left in a state where, while not dead, they will never be able to work again. Which creator do you permanently disable, for the good of mankind?!
    5. Has Frank Miller gone completely nuts?

  4. 1. What superhero would you want as the best man at your wedding?
    2. If you were a supervillain, what would your first devious act of evil be?
    3. Which would you rather have: the power to command hamsters or the power to become one with ceramic tile?
    4. What creator would you most like to see writing which book and why?
    5. Do you believe that Frank Miller's writing on All-Star Batman and Robin is part of an elaborate practical joke?

  5. 1. You get a chance to seduce one comic book character of your choice. No mind-control or anything sleazy - just a date and a shot at true romance. Who do you choose?
    2. Which one superhero would you like to trade places with?
    3. Who would win in a fight - The Mad Thinker (Marvel, F4 villain) or The Thinker (DC, JSA villain) ?
    4. What do you think ever happened to the Gwen Stacy clone that survived Maximum Clonage?
    5. Do you believe that Frank Miller, like Elvis, was kidnapped by aliens for being too good for this world and that he has since then been replaced by an imperfect alien clone?

  6. Cool. The five question interview meme lives on.
    Interview me. :D

  7. 1. Who would win in a fight - The Tom Baker Doctor Who or Batman?
    2. You get into a freak accident at work and develop a superpower. What's the accident and what is the power?
    3. Who is the denser (in terms of general obliviousness, not mass) EIC - Joe Quesada or Dan Dido?
    4. What one comic do you most want to see stop being published forever and ever? No new writers? No revamps. Just ended for all time.
    5. Are you tired of the Frank Miller running gag for the Fifth questions yet?

  8. I'll do it. Please make them comics-related if you can. :)

  9. 1. What comic book character would you most like to give an extreme makeover?
    2. Which power would you rather have - elemental control of leather or the power to instantly gain weight?
    3. Who would you rather be trapped in a locked room with certain death awaiting you - Batman or McGuyver?
    4. Who should be Ollie Queen's best man at the wedding and why?
    5. Would you pay money to see Frank Miller bring back Barbie Comics?
