To his friend as they walked out of the store...

I really wish that I had heard the beginning of this conversation.

  1. My theory is they were discussing the possibility of playing D&D in the X-Men's Danger Room. Which would be awesome. Or the holo-deck, either way. Assuming this is the case, the poor sap in today's strip is forgetting that you could program it to simulate Mountain Dew if you really wanted.

  2. Does Danger Room training need to be more EXXXXTREEEEEEME?

    Does Mountain Dew still sell itself as extreme? Is this a dated reference?

  3. It is a dated reference. But I forgive you.

  4. This is your best one in a while. Love it.

  5. This guy is telling it like it is.

  6. Dr. Pepper, on the other hand, is required.

  7. I really want to know the context of this quote. On the other hand, maybe it's funnier this way.

  8. But Logan can smoke and spill beer all over everything?! Typical.

  9. I like to believe that the context of this quote was whether someone would get with someone's enemy.

  10. Wait so is Danger Room actually a thing? I thought they were just making shit up like kindergarteners discussing what's better, mewtwo riding a t-rex or an ICBM.

    This makes me want to reread OVC while imagining that the customers are all responding to one another in one giant, strange dialogue.

  12. That 'drop it' at the end gives the impression that this is an argument that they'd been having for quite some time, and this guy just decided 'enough is ENOUGH.'

  13. This is the first truly random one in quite a while.

  14. velony: that's what I've been doing for awhile is pretending that they all are involved in some huge ritualistic suicide cult that stops by for comics on their way to monthly meetings. In fact, if you go guy-girl-guy-girl it works out to be the most passive aggressive tele-novella you've ever seen.

  15. The Danger Room could just make Mountain Dew though. Out of LIGHT.

  16. "The Danger Room could just make Mountain Dew though. Out of LIGHT." So just DROP IT, okay?! :)

  17. He probably said drop it so that MRTIM wouldn't put what was really going on on the website. As he reads this, he is relieved that this is the only part of the conversation that MRTIM was able to overhear. Had he not said drop it, his friend was about to say a doozie and he knew it.

  18. @Tigerama - Do YOU wanna be the one to tell Logan "No"?

    My favorite part of this is the "goddamn" and "fuckin". Really let's you know how intense our nerd arguments can get.

  19. If it hadn't been for that horse...

    Aixa, the Danger Room is the facility where the X-Men train. It is a real thing. It's sort of like a giant, booby-trapped holodeck.

  20. I would be FAR more interested to know if you can bring Mountain Dew on the holodeck.

  21. at this point i think people have to just be saying weird shit to you to purposely get you to put them in the comic.

  22. I bet the conversation started really normal. Like:
    "I sure could go for some mountain dew right about now."

  23. Clearly his friend is a mutant who gains super speed and intelligence while drinking mountain dew.
