Still More Meme Answers

Egads. I will never be done with this meme. Okay. Here's today's batch.


Cannonball - Has a weird thing about crocodiles.

Harley Quinn - was the sort of kid who always brought home sick birds to tend. No one ever bothered to ask how they'd gotten sick to begin with.

Nightcrawler - knows all the lyrics to the songs in the Sound of Music. It's kind of creepy actually.

Ron Weasley - You know, I'm like the only person I know who hasn't read these books. I read the first one, got bored by the end. But okay, I'll bite. Even though I'm sure he's never watched television, I suspect Ron Weasley would totally have liked Matlock.

Duke Nukem - Is a closet vegetarian. Okay. Not really. But he likes salad more than anyone would actually expect.

Strawberry Shortcake - has a secret vendetta against the Smurfs. It technically revolves around Smurfberries, but no one really wants to talk about it.

Spider Jerusalem - I've actually not yet read Transmetropolitan. It's on my list, but I think I have to take a pass. He does have an awesome name though.

Aunt May - Has a very colorful past. Ask Nick Fury about it sometime.

Buck Wargo - Sometimes being an awesome Millionaire-Scientist-Cowboy gets awfully tiring. Fortunately Guy's amusing enough to make up for those times.

Mace Gardner - Mace was always secretly a little jealous of his brother. I think he knew that, in some ways, the favorable treatment wasn't doing him any favors in the long run. And that, ultimately, his brother really is the better person.

Peggy Louise Gardner - I think one reason that good old Ms. Gardner underwent such a drastic personality change after Roland died was guilt and compensation. She hadn't been the sort of woman able to stop a man like him at the time, but now she's going to damn well make sure that it can NEVER happen again. Though really, she knows it's much too late to do any good, she wants her son to remember her as someone strong.

Susan Jordan - Susan likes Hal, but secretly thinks he's somewhat wishy-washy and unreliable. She wishes that Jim wouldn't get quite so emotionally invested in someone so likely to go traipsing off again.

Bucky - Bucky actually learned to pick locks from Steve Rogers, who felt that his previous, army-learned technique was terrible. Bucky never asked where Steve learned how to do that, mostly because Steve always wore such a guilty look on his face when the subject came up.

Sharon Carter - Sharon wanted to be a spy since she was a little girl, when she would wander about the neighborhood with a magnifying glass and a notebook.

The Red Skull - The first thing our Johann did when he had a spare moment after taking over a cloned body of Steve Rogers was find a harem of German women of suitable genetic lineage and ensconce them on a secret island base somewhere. Someday poor Steve is going to wash up on this island and have to face an army of terrifying, Nazi super-soldier children. Who are, in a round-about way, his own offspring. He will not take it well.

    "Someday poor Steve is going to wash up on this island and have to face an army of terrifying, Nazi super-soldier children."

    Not to mention the harem members, who might reasonably have some issues with him themselves. "It was my clone, honest!" isn't a very believable line...

    I'd be more worried about what the Red Skull did to make sure that the women didn't kill each other or their children off in power struggles. Because really, you know he would totally pick the psychotic women. Just look at what he turned Synthia into.

    Now I suddenly have this really weird theory about how Guy is actually a lot like his mom. If nothing else, maybe she's where he inherited his tendency to undergo drastic personality changes from.

    Hopefully her personality didn't change back and forth every time Rolly hit her on the head, though.

    Bwah! Your Harley Quinn is my favorite thus far. :D

    Of COURSE Nightcrawler would know all those lyrics. It's just one of those things. What's REALLY creepy, is that Wolverine knows all the lyrics too.

    The Strawberry Shortcake one made me laugh out loud.

    The Aunt May/Nick Fury idea is rife with possibilities.

    Gosh, I miss Buck Wargo. We NEED more Millionaire-Scientist-Cowboys.

    I've come to the inescapable conclusion that everyone in the Gardner family was screwed up...except Guy.

    Ah, May Parker, still my favorite wielder of the Power Cosmic. Of course, that was many years after her career as an OSS operative. Really a shame she "retired" by faking her own death. Still, it did leave the heartbroken Adolph Hitler to lead the Reich to ruin in his madness, so perhaps it was for the best.

    Such adventures she could have had, if she hadn't been stuck taking care of Peter all those years. :)
