Rob Liefeld's lament...
Now THAT made me laugh!
Hahaha! -Nice one! Young Rob Liefeld walks into a Comic Shop...
But I'm totally in to this dude's superheroes!
REALLY? -Who's your favorite? -The guy that looks like Spawn or the guy that looks like Spawn? I personally like his mostly-naked-female-character. His Superman-analogue-character is totally overrated though...
I like his characters too. Bat-Guy and the X-Dudes are awesome.
I like how he's both crazy AND just folks... Ain't that the general truth.And no one wants to see his super-heroes for the same reason no one watches my glorified video-logs... because they suck.
Nobody likes my character either: Laser Fire. He looks just like Ice Man... but with LASERS!!!!
So, you mean he's Prysm from DC Comics?
I want more heroes and villains with fully formed animals for heads like Fang from Teen Titans. Why hasn't anyone capitalized on that yet?
Now that I think of it, his powers are exactly like a cross between Ice Man and Green Lantern (only red). Laserfire is older than Prism by 12 years. What can I say? 10 year olds aren't very original. Or at least, I wasn't.
Was that guy's name Sean O'Leary? Cuz a guy in our store "writes" superhero fiction and would say the same thing.
No one likes my characters either. I created Flaccid Lad, for the Legion, but it just never caught on for some reason.
My favorite Silver Age Legion comics were the ones where they had open auditions. Flaccid Lad would have fit right in with the rest of the rejects. Nothing personal.
I liked the one where Flaccid Lad met Innuendo Gal and briefly changed his name to Turgid Boy.
Er?....everybody? I hate the X-Men!
They're alright so long as Wolverine, Jean Grey, Cyclops and Xavier don't get too much screen-time, the plot stays simple and the cast is kept small.
"...Like this, my totally-original character, Bullverine! And this guy, his nemesis Swordtooth! NO THEY AREN'T TRACED!!"
Buck up, Champ. Nobody likes my superheroes either. :(
Well, I had an idea for a team of super powered homeless people. They are smelly and insane (for some of the team-members these features are actually their super-powers), but they do good and want nothing but graditude and maybe some change.
