Nerd Lunch Podcast 21: Comic Book Scenarios

While Jeeg is off jet setting overseas, Pax and CT take advantage and welcome Vanessa and Erika from Girls Gone Geek to discuss “comic book scenarios.” The podcasting crew discuss super powers, sidekicks, and which characters should be killed and stay dead. Plus, one member’s “Nerd To-Do” reveals a desire to finally do some Black Canary cosplay. No…it’s not CT’s to-do, but just saying that paints a picture you’ll never get rid of. You’re welcome, Internet.

    So about Guy Gardner… I got nothing.

    Besides not having to prepare, one of the best things about not being on an episode is taking in the show as a listener. Fun episode even if I didn't know what you were talking about half the time.

    Great episode everyone. A few thoughts:

    – my favorite super-hero sidekick is Rick Jones. Now he can turn into a Hulk-like creature called A-bomb but back in the day he was just a normal dude who hung out with super heroes. For a while he trained with Captain America and was his side kick, but most of his sidekicking career was with the Hulk. I liked him because he was funny, hip and just a normal human with no powers just martial arts training. He was also indirectly responsible for Bruce Banner turning into the Hulk.

    – Bucky should have stayed dead. His death meant something and they ruined it by bringing him back and creating all this uneeded back story. Also I agree Jasen Todd should have stayed dead too. When Aunt May died it was a touching sequence, then again they ruined it by bringing her back.

    – One character I've always liked but has never got the proper treatment is Captain Marvel. i liked the series 'Power of Shazam' in the 90's, but since then the character just hasn't been used as he should have been. But apparently Geoff Johns will be bringing him back in the New 52 as a back up story in Justice league. Looking forward to that.

    Good left-coast morning, friends. As random selection would have it, you have posted a series of articles that I cannot make any intelligent contribution to, but I just wanted to wave my arms from the balcony and let you know that I'm still here. By way of comment, I will just say that I'm completely with Pax on this point: Taking over the world, or just being nasty in general, is so much work, I don't know how anyone sustains it for any length of time.

    Let me invite you to swing by the Hideout, where I have just posted about my favorite movie, and also touched on one of my big Nerd To-Do's, which is to try my hand at writing some steampunk. Also, you might enjoy a visit to a couple of my newest followers; two review books, including graphic novels and the steampunk genre (coincidence, I assure you!), and one writes short stories professionally in a range of genres including sci-fi, fantasy, and horror.

    Erika, if you are serious about coming to SD for ComicCon, let me offer you a few pointers. First and foremost, PLAN, PLAN, PLAN! The event, taken as a whole, puts any 3-ring circus you've ever been caught up in to shame. Locals who aren't attending don't even go downtown during that week. If you just walk in without a plan, you'll be overwhelmed by it all, and miss half of what you came to see. My recommendation is plan your assault like a SEAL Team operation, and get as many tickets, event passes, and so on, on line before you pack your suitcase. Googlemaps, or similar, will of course give you the lay of the land. The San Diego Convention Center, site of the event, is at ground zero of the tourist traps. As such, most hotel rooms within walking distance, especially during Con week, will price out at well over $100 a night, and restaurants; forget it! Maybe that's within your budget, and if so, great, that can only improve your experience. If not, we have an excellent light rail trolley system that delivers to the door, and serves several of the outlying communities, so Motel 6, Easy 8, and the various other budget places become available. Just look for "San Diego Trolley" on the maps. I know this sounds negative, but that isn't my intent. You'll have the time of your life, but like any big event, there can be hassles, and the more you know up-front, the smoother things will run. I'll be happy to answer any other questions you might have. has a chat board for the "quick" stuff, and an e-mail link for more detailed discussions. It's the least I can do for a fellow Lunchkateer.

    Well, for somebody with nothing to say, this is some comment! A thousand apologies… I'll just be going now… Good day to you all!
