Meme Answers Part Deux

Here I continue with my answers to this meme. Again, it's only a few at a time. But I'll probably finish it in bigger batches over the weekend.

Hope these answers amuse you!


Tyroc - I actually don't know ANYTHING about Tyroc beyond what Wikipedia says, but in my personal continuity, there is totally a crossover adventure where he and Black Canary go drunken caroling.

Jaime Reyes - Wanted to be a nun for about two weeks when he was three years old, despite the obvious chromosomal incompatibility. His mother still teases him about that sometimes.

Lois Lane - When she was a kid, she always wanted to be President. She realizes now that it's probably not a good idea as it would put Clark, as First Gentleman, under far too much scrutiny. On the other hand, Clark probably could make do.

Nightwing - I'm resisting the temptation to be mean to Nightwing. Instead, I've decided that Dick's really horrible fashion sense comes from his one nod to teenage rebellion against Bruce and Alfred's phenomenal taste.

Batman - I think Batman, while actually a bastard sometimes, other times just acts like a jerk to get a rise out of his superhero colleagues out of sheer amusement. In that sense, he's actually very much like Guy Gardner. I think there's a weird sort of understanding there. Though Guy still gets pissed off by the way Bruce treats his sidekicks.

Dum Dum Dugan - Met his wife when she walloped him on the playground. It was love at first sight.

John Stewart - Once had a really embarrassing experience in Miami. It was totally Hal's fault, and Katma will not stop laughing whenever the subject is brought up.

Tim Drake - While competent in pretty much any other capacity, in my head, Tim Drake cannot carry a tune to save his life.

Gambit - Used to give Wolverine's cigars a bit of a charge as a practical joke. He has since learned his lesson.

    Since embarrassing things never seem to happen to John, I'm glad that he at least has SOME sort of skeleton in his closet. Naturally, it would be Hal's fault.

    I suspect a feather boa was involved.

    So is Katma Tui alive in your worldview?

    Is, will be eventually, whichever. :-)

    I'm amazed that more crazy stuff doesn't happen to John considering that he hangs out with Hal, Guy, and Kyle, who are pretty much the biggest disaster-magnets in the universe.

    Then again, maybe that's why he's usually safe from it: if something's going to go wrong, stand near one of those guys and it's sure to happen to them instead of you.

    It's a lightning rod effect.

    It's also why it's a good idea to stand next to a Batclan member if you're afraid of personal tragedy.

    That can backfire though. Too close and you ARE the personal tragedy.

    I always thought Lois Lane would make an awesome President until DCU Decisison revealed her as Republican. So, in my head that didn't happen, and et voila, Lois back to being an awesome President.

    And Clark would totally just have to deal with it.
    I totally agree with Batman purposefully being an arse. Godo observations on Tim and Gambit too :) I like your Universe, can I move in?

    It must follow that, to sort of tease his mother, Jaime once dressed up as a nun for Halloween.

    "Dick's really horrible fashion sense"? Sure, there was the Elvis collar when he first began his new career, but he's now wearing the coolest non-Green-Lantern costume in the DCU.

    Have you seen his civilian clothes though? Egads.
