A Meme Interview with ME!

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

Hey, it's a post. :-P

1. If you could have one superhero/villain's costume custome tailored to fit you and wear, whose would it be? :O

Guy Gardner's Green Lantern costume. It looks stylish AND comfortable!

2. What would you do if a Monitor came up to you and said that you shouldn't exist? XD

Ask him why HE's here. At the top of my lungs. While running FAR away and screaming for help. I might just skip the first bit.

3. Who is one of the greatest influences in your life? :)

When I was little, I always wanted to be Mr. Spock. Or maybe the Doctor.

4. How do you like your dragon cooked? o_O

Charbroiled or grilled to black. It seems apropos. :-)

5. Where is your ideal place to live? :D

Probably I'd go back upstate New York. Syracuse maybe. I've always liked New York. Not too hot, not too cold, lots of lakes. :-)

Failing that, somewhere on the northern East Coast near the ocean. I like to swim (and I like the Atlantic better than the Pacific). And the South is too damn hot. And everyone talks funny! :-P


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.

    2. If you could re-design one hero/heroine's costume, what would it be and how would you do it?

    5. If you were a superhero, what ridiculously silly secret identity would you be using?

    Nice costume pick! Guy's poofy loose jacket/vest is ultra-cool.

    Also, kudos to you for mentioning the Northeast (Mass guy here). We really do have an awesome location. :) Damn nice forests, for one thing.

    And I need an excuse to update my livejournal anyway(livejournals are allowed right?), so I'll play.

    *Ahem* Interview me.

  • At June 13, 2007 10:10 AM, Blogger SallyP said…

    I humbly request an interview. And I need a blog subject, darn it!

    Oh, and good choice on the costume. Can you imagine trying to wear Arisia's outfit? *shudder*

  • At June 13, 2007 11:27 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said…

    Oh, what the hell. I linkwhore WFA all over my Bitchy McEmo LJ. Interveiw me and I shall linkwhore it again!

    Hmm...why not? I haven't uploaded the blog in a couple of least this'll be a post!


  • At June 13, 2007 1:14 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said…

    See, now I'd have gone with Iron Man's armor as a costume choice, but then again, I'm a power gamer type. Having a costume is cool...having one with all the powers built in, even cooler.

    Of course these days, you'd pretty much have to paint "Not Tony Stark In Here, Bruce, Please Do Not Kill Me" on the chestplate before wearing it in public.

    Accessorized with a "Reed Richards is a Jackass!" bumper sticker, no doubt.

  • At June 13, 2007 2:53 PM, Blogger Ragtime said…

    3. Who is one of the greatest influences in your life? :)

    When I was little, I always wanted to be Mr. Spock. Or maybe the Doctor.

    Doctor who?

  • At June 14, 2007 9:27 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said…

    1. If you could make your favorite comic book into a movie (not counting any that are already movies), what would you choose?

    Well, I'm assuming live-action here. I don't have a ton of favorites yet, I think Manhunter would be better off as a TV show.
    GLC would only work animated.
    JSA could work as family fare.

    2. Related to the above, who'd you cast to star?
    I'd probably dump some of the cast for space.

    Sentinel/Green Lantern- I could so see Kevin Costner for some reason
    Wildcat- Russell Crowe.
    Jay Garrick- it's too bad you can't go back in time- I'd get Andy Griffith to play the role. No idea who I'd pick for today.
    Power Girl- Trish Stratus maybe?
    Sand- Chris Evans? No idea.
    Dr. Mid-Nite- the current Dr.Who maybe?
    Mr.Terrific- LeVar Burton if he isn't too old now
    Star-Spangled Girl- some disney princess
    Jakeem Thunder- some guy from disney
    Cyclone- one of the teeny-bop singer types

    Unfortunately, I don't pay much attention to actors/actresses much.

    3. If every superheroine were in a Bachelorette auction, who'd you bid on?

    My biggest concerns
    a) I don't want to be the first Man in Refrigerator.
    b) I don't want her to make me the first Man in Refrigerator.

    That rules out 90% of the universe. Zatanna seems like a safe choice. She shouldn't have any enemies, since she doesn't do anything, and she'd be more creative then pounding me into a pulp. Power Girl would be a close second- I wouldn't last too long but would enjoy the ride.

    4. What's the stupidest plot twist you can remember reading in a comic?

    Honestly, I hated the retconning of Hal Jordan from the Spectre back into Hal. I'd much rather have had Parallax fighting his nature then seeking redemption over a series of years slowly instead.

    Most Time Travel stories come a close 2nd.

    5. Triangles or Circles?

    Triangles. You never heard about Circle Man.

    Okay, Hale:

    1. If you could rewrite one major plot development in either big universe to suit your tastes, what would you choose?

    2. If you could take one character from any comic and insert him/her into the cast of another comic, who would it be and what comic would you drop it in?

    3. If you could make a villain and a hero who are not usually direct adversaries have a knock down no holds barred fight, who'd be fighting?

    4. Zombies or dragons?

    5. If you could give a "hang in there" poster to any character in superhero comics, who would you give it to?
