Question of the Week


In honor of the Olympia Comics Festival:

If Olympia was a comic book, who'd be the superHERO?

Ok, sorry. If you wanted to vote for Oly's supervillian, I changed the poll. It just had too much potential to get ruthless and personal. Anyway, this blog is supposed to be about what we need. And what this town needs are more heroes...

I think Onyx from an aesthetic perspective could really pull of a very fun comic book look.

But also I think Pat Tassoni (Olympia Tenant's Union)has secret powers that he uses to fight evil. Notice how he's always there at moments of crisis? How he walks in the shadowy parts of the street? How seemingly knows everything that goes on in Olympia? How he pisses off all the right people? Hmmm....

You may be right about Pat, but, a lot of superheroes have alter-egos that fool you into believing the person is normal. Pat is always Super Pat, so I'm not sure about him. Vince would be the perfect super hero, dashing, unintimidating, mild mannered banjo teacher by day - revolutionary fighter for social change by night.

A Bar Card is not the same as superpowers. But not everyone knows that.

Also, no true superhero would have a website named after himself.

You're right about the website thing. Now I think maybe you are the suprhero, and you're trying hide it by asking this question. Out with it Jade!

Please. You guys are so incestuous. My superhero(ine) would be Meta Hogan. She's foxy, whip-smart and never gets hangovers. Plus, she has great boots.

Machete Red,(if that IS your real name)

Is it lonely up there on your pedestal?

Funny thing about pedestals, Rob (if in fact that is YOUR real name), is that everyone wants to be there. Well, except for those who sabotage their own potential because they fear being visible, or famous, or accountable to their community, or whatever. So, to respond directly to your comment: NO. It is far from lonely up here. Join us, the fabulous, the brilliant, the spicy. We want you.
