    I guess I mistakenly wrote that the “V” story was from my childhood? That was from my last year as a trick-or-treater, and since I’m a nerd that means I was 14 or 15, can’t remember which year. Hope that makes you guys feel better about yourselves(?)

    Breckin Meyer also voices all the Lindsey Lohan skits on Robot Chicken, and that’s my personal favorite voice of his for the show.

    Also, Zack, you came very close to telling the Catherine Bell story, but decided instead upon the Godzilla story, and the rest is history.

    PS Best. Kaneda. Ever.

  3. Brown Bomber was almost DC’s first black character. He was a white guy who would say his magic word and transform into a powerful black man. The twist was that he was a racist, didn’t know his super power made him black, and he continually saved the lives of black people without realizing that they were black. For some reason DC never published those stories. McDuffie recently “revived” the character in his JLA run. In his story all the traditional elements of the character were kept, but, his transformation only lasted an hour. He called that time CPT.
    In the far future of the Legion of Superheroes all the black people live on a single island, and that island spends most of its time out of phase with the rest reality. Tyroc is an angry black man from that island. He wears elf shoes and his power is super powered angry screams.

    Angela Bower is the single mother from Who’s the Boss, and Nancy Botwin is the single mother from Weeds. Both are single mothers who have taken extreme measures to insure their family’s lifestyle by either hiring a dirty wop or selling drugs.

    Miracle Man was written by both Neil Gaiman and Alan Moore, it is their only collaboration and thanks to copyright issues the final issues were never published.

    Agent X isn’t dead. He showed up once in Deadpool/Cable, and supposedly became a fat bastard. Its a fucking crime how Marvel has treated the Agent X Alumni.

      God damn it is a shame how the Agent X line has gotten treated. I picked up one issue and had to burn my way through everything agent x. When I was done I just said “That’s it? Really?” Besides I adored the adorable little chibis of agent x’s team
