Eventually it had to happen. Take the emo of Spider-Man and the emo of musical theatre and you have this.

If there's something lacking in Spider-Man, CLEARLY it's dramatic monologues that went UNSUNG.

Maybe with great power comes great choreography?
And how does one "turn off the dark?"

To quote a wiser man than me, "It's schwarbage."

(It's stuff like this that makes me think of Joe Quesada as the Mr. Pinciotti of comics.)

Comic book character spotting! Ra's al Ghul


I inadvertently found indisputable proof that Batman exists - in the form of this statue of Ra’s Al Ghul in Tribeca.

The statue has been erroneously engraved as being a figure from Uruguayan history who supposedly died over 150 years ago. But technically Ra's could've been a figure in Uruguay's history. See, Ra’s has never let a little thing like mortality get in his way.

This is Ra's al Ghul. The Demon's Head.

And he's REAL.

And if Ra’s al Ghul is real, and I am both living and not enslaved, then I have to believe Batman is real. Because no other force on Earth could keep us safe from a man who's lived for centuries and wakes up every day continuing to choose this crazy of a hair/facial hair combo.

Please note this closeup of my amazed face.
