J'onn J'onzz, Martian Manhunter said...

I like how this blog has all these characters who were unnapreciated before becoming cult faves here... Really, you just HAVE to do the thought slaves.

Scipio said...

Oh, I might do ALL of these; I just like people to have the chance to participate in the process by voting for their favorites.

Where's Dick Hunter, Elevator Operator?

J'onn J'onzz, Martian Manhunter said...

Oh yeah, Dick Hunter. Jimmy Olsen is a disturbing child.

That link on the Porter one reminds me to ask, "Whatever happened to Haikusday"?

Scipio said...

I put it on haiku hiatus, because
the comparatively difficulty of my having to find them myself began to outweight the participation levels by commenters. In fact, you're the first person who's mentioned it...

Would Salvador Dali appear in his real form or as that dude you found in Archie comics, "that sinister villain of surrealism"? It should be Archie version for that line alone. On lesser notes, would Dali's piece be a melted clock? Would he come with a burning giraffe sidekick? What powers would he possess?

Scipio said...

I've been undecided about that; I'm leaning toward the Archieverse version.

I'm thinking he would able to use Perplex on any adjacent opponent (and probably get clobbered immediately after)

Paul S. said...

I want a Kryptonite Monkey... and a Beppo Click for him to fight.

Scipio said...

Truth be told, Paul, I've already made the Kryptonite Monkey.

I mean, c'mon...


I can put it on my Evil Simians team...

Bill D. said...

Amorous Space Gorilla should have an actual pices, not just a pog. It's a gorilla. From space. Who has a way with the ladies. Now that I think of it, where's the DC Direct action figure?

Scipio said...

"Amorous Space Gorilla should have an actual pices, not just a pog. It's a gorilla. From space."

You make a strong point, Bill. Perhaps that would be a better custom clix figure.

Steven said...

Y'know, I voted for the Gail Simone pog.

Now I'm not sure what it would do.

Scipio said...

Heh, heh; I am...
