how I get when I realize san diego comic-con is just 10 days away
Let me just share this one more time.
HOW LONG WOULD IT REALLY TAKE TO FIGURE OUT BATMAN’S SECRET IDENTITY? REDDITORS INVESTIGATE
If you weren’t aware, Reddit has a section called Ask Science Fiction, which is essentially a space in the Internet for people to ask for explanations of details in fictional stories (“When and why did the Decepticons and Autobots split apart?”) or to consider fictional “what if” scenarios (“What would cause someone to lose their connection to The Force?”).
Last week, someone asked, “If Batman were to operate in real life, how fast would it take for his identity to be revealed?” The answers are pretty entertaining.
…current wishlist of things: I want someone to develop the next DC character and at least keep some of the origin story. Just some.. not the whole thing. Serious if someone makes Wonder Woman from London and gives her gun and motorcycle I will cry. Just give her the motorcycle and we’re good.
