Right & Wrong

Who Wants To Be A Superhero… Week 3!

Here’s a video of the show's Intro.

Well, I picked Mr. Mitzvah to be 86d and he was. No big shock there. He was always wimping out during the challenges, so it was only a matter of time. In fact, he would have been gone last week if Mindset hadn’t been such a jerk. The big surprise came when Stan had the super-folks come back to their power cubes for another, immediate elimination and poof, Ms. Limelight was gone too. She’s a nice person but she couldn’t take the pressure. Plus, her antics were getting old. I won't miss her. So, I was right and wrong with my prediction, although I did pick Ms. Limelight two weeks ago.

So we’re down to:

Hygena, Defuser, Whipsnap, Basura, Parthenon, and Hyperstrike.

Since I have to guess, I going with Basura to be eliminated next time.

Having a Supervillain directly involved with the challenges really adds to the fun, Doctor Dark rocks! …in goofy Silver Age Kinda way. Mu-hahaha

Who Wants To Be A Superhero is so cheesy, but I love it. The premise is so simple, but it really works for me. Part or the reason I have such an affinity for the show, I think, could possibly have something to do with dressing as a superhero and acting out the part. I might blog about this someday… I must stress might here.

Next episode video promo here.

I've never dressed up as a superhero (heck, I don't even do halloween anymore), but I have thought about what hero I'd audition as if I lived in LA and was unemployed (or independently wealthy).

Don Snabulus said...

I am Sphinxtor, part stone lion, part superstrong muscle.

Arkonbey said...

which muscle? That's pretty important...

The Moody Minstrel said...

Doctor Dark? Seriously?

Doctor Dark was the name of a supervillain character in a comic I drew back when I was in the 6th grade.

An aspiring teenage comic artist (who frequently entered contests with his art and apparently did pretty well) looked at it one day and said, "'Doctor Dark'? That's a cool name! I mean, it's so simple, so obvious, and yet it's so cool! Do you mind if I use it?" I said I didn't mind.

And now, all these years later, Doctor Dark appears!

Naaaaaah, it couldn't be...

Swinebread said...

akronbey - This show came to late for me to audtion for.

snab - I know you are but what am I?

moody - you right it is a obvious name. Now what did your Dr. Dark look like?

Alan Scott said...

You may be right, Swinebread. Basura will probably go next, if it isn't Hyper-strike, now that Parthenon has stopped being a non-factor in the challenges. So who and what super-hero are you, SB?

Overdroid said...

I'm dressed as a super hero right now. Guy-in-his-underwear man.

Don Snabulus said...


Puh-leeze! The visual!

(Sphinxtor says from his glass house as he refuses to reveal his secret muscle [or is it, mussel])?

Swinebread said...

alan - Basura yes, not counting something unforseen like a mindset incindent

OD - You wear underwear?

sanb - same for me

Hygena? Is that a chick that seeks out horny couples in order to provide a prophylatic at the last possible moment? That might be interesting.
