6 and 7's boss announces he's running for president and dares them to find a reason for him to not run. What do they do? If they find something embarrassing do they tell anyone?

Okay, well, considering we have Amy Allen and Charles Xavier...about the only time I think Xavier has anything that can be called a boss is when Scott overthrows him. I could see Scott hiring a reporter in a botched PR attempt though.

Amy's a super-reporter and Xavier's a telepath, so finding secrets shouldn't be hard. On the other hand, it's hard to think of something embarassing that wouldn't have already come up, so exposing the secret is pointless. They may have to go to plan B: four guys in a van, shooting but never hitting anything to try to changes his mind.

1, 4, 5 and 9 all have an embarrassingly geeky hobby, what are they?

Guy, Kory, Riker and Carrot. Strip Dungeons and Dragons. I'm pretty sure Guy, Kory and Will can find a way to make it work.

2, 3, 8, and 10 all discover they're one class shy of completing college degrees. What classes would they sign up for?

Emma Frost, Tobias Gregson, Deanna Troi, and Cheetara.

Hmm, well. I'm a big supporter of basket weaving. Mostly because I think it'd really annoy Emma and Gregson. Troi would enjoy it, and Cheetara would weave the baskets too fast to really bother with.

1 asks 10 out on a date. Does 10 accept? If so, where do they go?

Guy and Cheetara. I could see it. So yeah, she accepts. They go and prank Mumm-Ra. Poor Mumm-Ra.

Superman is visiting, and comes down with a case of Super-Hiccups. What do 2,5,8 and 9 do to cure him?

Emma, Riker, Troi and Carrot. Well, Troi and Riker probably have some cure from the Enterprise. If not, Emma can always try impromptu "mental therapy" to get rid of it (the catatonia afterward is a bitch."

Failing that, Carrot can try to scare them out, which should be pretty funny.

#1 and 4 have decided to throw a fancy dinner party. 3 is being lazy, and 6 and 10 are allergic to everything. How does 7 get things under control...and who polishes the silver?

Guy and Starfire throw the party, Gregson is lazy, Amy and Cheetara are allergic...

Well, it's Xavier so I think he gets things under control through a mix of authoritative commands, a hyper-competent but emotionally disturbed teenager, and dubious-ethicality telepathy. Cyclops will polish the silver and like it.

Hal Jordan shows up and declares that he is powerless except from the waist down. What do 1,4 and 8 do about it?

Guy laughs his ass off. Starfire grins and says at least the important parts still work. Troi offers therapy.

2, 3 and 9 go to Las Vegas and make fools of themselves. What happens in Vegas...stays in Vegas...except that there is video footage. What does 10 do about it?

Emma, Gregson and Carrot go to Vegas. I suppose Cheetara can run and steal the video. She'll probably keep it quiet because even though Emma and Gregson are jerks, Carrot's a nice boy.

A giant serpent is running amuck. How does 1 handle it?

Well, it's Guy. He handles shit like this on general principle. So he'll use the ring, whack the crap out of the serpent while insulting its parentage in the process.

Evil hammers are falling from the sky and making people act crazy. Does 2 grab one?

Please, Emma Frost doesn't do manual labor. She might make Scott pick it up though.

3 finds out someone made an adult film based on his/her life. 3's response?

well, Gregson IS Victorian. He'd probably use it to gloat over Lestrade.

4 somehow screwed up the past and now 5's life is totally different. How did 4 do this, and how is 5's life different?

Well, they are in the right order time period wise. I'd like to think Starfire accidently blows up Alaska. This is nothing against Alaska, as I'm sure they rebuild. But this might have led into Riker's interest in buxom aliens.

Sally Floyd calls 6 unAmerican for not following Nascar. What does 6 do?

Heh, Amy's a member of the A-Team. I'm pretty sure she can change her mind. Or call the guys in. Somehow this will lead to Face pretending to be a Jeff Gordon type, BA in a race car, and Murdock showing us all why helicopters should be permitted to race.

A war is brewing between heroes. What does 7 do?

Depending on his mood at the time: Xavier'll mind whammy or do jack shit. :-P

8 is taken to an alien planet and forced to fight for a vague concept. 1 through 10, who does 8 pick to be his/her team (5 people total)

Hmm. Well. Deanna Troi's not much of a fighter herself. I'll go with Starfire and Cheetara for physical muscle. Emma Frost and Charles Xavier for mental muscle. (Being from Betazed, she probably understands military use of telepaths better than anyone.) And Riker, because someone needs to discuss ponderous Federation concepts with her while hitting on the alien babes.

9 finds out that there is going to be comic based his/her life. The team is Mark Millar and Jim Balent. How does 9 react, and what would be the series be promoted as?

Hmm, well. Carrot's a nice boy. I'm sure he wouldn't react too violently. On the other hand, I'm sure Angua might have an opinion or two, as Balent's version of a lady werewolf might get interesting.

And he might have to go politely discourage Mark Millar's portrayal of the Watch.

10: same thing, only the team is Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. How does 10 react, and what would be the series be promoted as?

Cheetara would probably have fun with that. She's an alien cat lady who runs fast, so I'm sure the Chivalrous Cheetah will save the day!

3 and 4 have been hit with a shrinking ray and are trapped in 7's bedroom. What's the most dangerous thing in there to them in their five-inch-high forms?

Hmm, Gregson and Starfire. Xavier's room. My guess would be accidently getting stepped on by Magneto...

...not that I'm implying anything.

1, 2, and 8 go out partying with a shapeshifter pretending to be 9. Who figures it out first, and what gives him away?

Okay, well assuming neither Emma's telepathy or Deanna's empathy pick up anything. I'm sure they'll figure something out when Carrot actually understands/reacts to Guy's obnoxious comments.

2,3 and 5 visit a parallel world in which 7 was never born. What's the most obvious difference?

Emma, Gregson, Riker...I suppose this is differentiated from Age of Apocalypse since Xavier was alive and then died in that one...

My guess is that there are a lot fewer teenage mutant vigilantes?

6 has been elected President of the United States, somehow. What cabinet positions would 7, 8, and 9 be up for?

Amy? Awesome. I think Deanna will get to be Secretary of State (she's more likeable than Xavier). Xavier can be Secretary of the Interior. Carrot can be Secretary of Justice.

The rest of the positions will be filled by the A-Team. All of them. There will be a lot of explosions.

There is going to be a film based on Tarot: Witch of the Black Rose.
1 and 7 are up for the role of Tarot. Who gets cast, but who would be better for the role?

Guy Gardner or Charles Xavier. Hmm. Guy's redheaded, younger, and has gone around wearing less clothing, so he'd be best for the role. Thanks to Xavier's mind-whammy, he'll also be the one to get it.

2 gets roped into a debate over Wicca with Raven Hex. How long does it last and who wins?

Emma would hardly do anything so uncouth as to argue politics or religion. She might however exchange fashion tips.

3 gets stuck working with the Skeleton Man. How long does the Skeleton Man go without almost dying, and does 3 do anything to prevent this? Bonus points if you say how 3 and Skeleton Man end up in a compromising position and what the position is.

Hmm, well considering Gregson's got at least one guy killed for inactivity. I think the Skeleton Man has about fifteen minutes. Gregson might call in Sherlock Holmes...

For the compromising position: Gregson gets caught trying on Skeleton Man's outfit. Scotland Yard will never stop laughing.

8 wakes up to a naked were-cat under his/her bed. 8's reaction?

Deanna will probably have the poor confused thing transported to the holodeck until they can figure out where it came from.

6 finds a sleeping vampire cheerleader in his/her luggage. The response?

Amy finds a sleeping vampire cheerleader in her luggage. She'll probably call Murdock. It seems like the sort of thing Murdock has seen before.

9 is being haunted by a ghostly T-Rex. How does 9 resolve this issue?

Carrot will explain to it how many laws it's breaking and politely ask it to leave. Carrot is very persuasive.

10 is attacked by foul mouthed schoolgirls with swords in their rulers and a leader with uranium filled breast implants. Does 10 defeat them and how?

She'll probably run around them until they fall over. Fortunately she should be able to outrun a uranium-breast implant explosion...

Ghostly nurses are attacking people and stealing body parts. If the ghosts won't tell 4 where they are going, can 4 still stop them?

I'm pretty sure Starfire could take a couple of ghostly nurses. :-) And look better doing it.

Uh-oh, it looks like the Misfits have finally taken Jem & the Holograms out. 1 through 5, who steps in to repalce the band and what instruments do they play?

Hmm. Guy, Emma, Gregson, Starfire and Riker.

Well, Riker plays the trombone. I don't know if Gregson can play an instrument, but maybe he could learn the drums?

Starfire's the only one outrageous enough to be the lead singer. Emma'll be the keyboarder who always thinks she should get more attention. And Guy'll be basist. He should have fun revisiting the war-paint of his Warrior days.

Speaking of the Misfits, it looks like they have been arrested for all the stuff they do. 6 through 9, who replaces them and what do they play?

Hmm. Amy, Xavier, Troi and Carrot. Well barring Xavier, and MAYBE Troi, I don't think this group will be particularly good at the bitchy misfit angle. I'd put Xavier on keyboards, Amy and Troi singing and guitar. Carrot on drums.

Does 10 represent the Misfits in court? Only on Third Earth.

General Hawk is looking for a few good men (and women or robots) 1 through 10, who gets picked and what are their are their codenames? If they have alter egos, then they have to pick new names.

Hmm. I think I'll go with Guy, Starfire, Carrot and Cheetara, for combat ready characters.

Riker and Troi are sort of military already. And Troi's got a semi-useful psychic ability.

Amy's hung around a group of crazy war vets with guns and a van, and picked up some of their skills, so he might pick her too.

As useful as telepathy is, I doubt he'd pick Emma (too high maintenance) or Xavier (not so good at follower-type roles), and Gregson's probably out of luck unless they needed someone used to Sherlock Holmes.

For codenames...

Guy Gardner: The Monkey-Spanker
Starfire: Corona (referencing stars AND beer!)
Riker: The Trombone(r)
Amy: Lady A.
Troi: Mistress Mindscrew
Carrot: The Giant Dwarf
Cheetara: The Speeding Bullet

Giant robots that change shape are attacking! 1,3,5,8, and 10 are caught in the middle. What do they do?

Hmm, Guy, Gregson, Riker, Troi, Cheetara

I'm thinking Guy and Cheetara would go straight for ass-kicking, Riker and Troi would contact their ship and beam civilians out. Gregson would complain and maybe call Sherlock Holmes for an explanation.

A giant zombie is tearing up the city and just shoved 2 inside it's rib cage. What does 6 do?

Probably call the A-Team. If anyone can handle a giant zombie, they can.

9 has been swallowed by a one eyed monster! What does 9 do and can 7 help?

I'm pretty sure Carrot can punch/slash his way out. Xavier can give him directions so he doesn't get lost on the way.

Meanwhile, a giant goblin is turning the Statue of Liberty to life so he can date it. Does 4 play match maker or not?

Starfire's pretty open-minded, so sure!

1 through 9, who would like to be on Geekademia, the best darn podcast on the internet?

I think Gregson, Riker and Troi are most likely too. For one, they'd be appreciated there. For two, the others are a tad impatient/snooty.

1,3,7, and 9 form a team. What is their name and can 2 stop them?

Hmm, Guy, Gregson, Xavier and Carrot. I'll go with some variation of "the almighty douchebags." Which they're okay with, because Guy likes to call himself "almighty", Gregson and Carrot don't know what a douchebag is, and Xavier let his students cast his vote.

Emma can probably stop them. Xavier's a stronger telepath, but she's surprised him before, Gregson's an ordinary man, Carrot can be reasoned with, and Guy is distracted by boobs.

4 gets blasted into space and forced to watch bad movies. Do they use special parts to make some robot friends? if so, what parts?

Hmm, Starfire doesn't normally tend to build robots, but she's from a space faring society and hangs around with the Titans, so I bet she can learn. She likes people after all. She probably asks Cyborg to send her up some materials.

What song does 9 play when he/she tries to kill 7 with a forklift?

Killing me softly with his song.

Does 3 know where the fish live?

If he doesn't, I'm sure Sherlock Holmes could tell him.

Can 2 live like the hu-mans? Does 3know of...the plan?

Only if the hu-mans can afford a designer wardrobe, and probably. He IS the smartest of Scotland Yard, after all. He'd find out just to lord it over Lestrade.

would 8 wish away all the springs?

Nah, she likes springs.

1,4,7,9 get cast in a Marx Brothers biography. Who plays who?

Hmm, Guy, Starfire, Xavier or Carrot.

I'll go with Xavier as Groucho, Starfire as Chico, Carrot as Harpo and Guy as Zeppo. (He IS the underappreciated Green Lantern after all.)

5 gets roped into hosting a horror movie on a local TV station. What character does he/she play and is it based on Elvira?

Riker, hmm. Well, I don't think he could pull off Elvira's wardrobe (though maybe he could talk Troi into it). He could probably pull off smarmy vampire type, though.

1 has to take care of a cat that eats nothing but Italian food. How do that go?

Eh, Guy could go for Italian. It'll work. Especially if he can make Hal or Kyle cat-sit.

2 finds a duck with gold bands around its feet. what does 2 do?

Probably leave it alone. Emma Frost doesn't do wildlife.

3 runs into two men who are vague about eveything. what happens to 3?

Probably ends up another one of Watson's case files.

4 finds him/her self trapped with Funky Winkerbean in a lousy pizza place. How long before 4 beats Funky to death?

Starfire's fairly nice, but I'd give it 2.5 days.

5 is nearly run over by a hatefilled old man in a school bus. 5's response?

Riker would probably shrug and introduce himself to the old man's attractive daughter.

3, 6 and 9 go for a nice walk in the country.

Who falls in the river and why.

Who feeds the ducks and what does he/she feed them.

Who declares that it's a dull day and they should fight to liven things up.

Hmm, Gregson, Troi and Carrot. I'll go for Gregson falling in the river, (he was looking for a clue), Amy feeds the ducks as part of Hannibal's plan, and Carrot suggests the fight.

However, as Gregson and Amy are fairly ordinary people, he'll probably suggest they go find a bar of drunken idiots so he can fight them instead. Amy will go for it, she probably misses good bar fights.

can 6 insepct concrete?

After a year or two with the A-Team, I'm sure she can forge some credentials.

can 3 catch rats?

No. Lestrade is the faster runner. :-)


I hope you enjoyed!
