Dear DC, please contact the creator of this character and do an April Fool's Day spoof with him. Thank you.

...DC needs to hand control over their characters to the internet. Giant evil machine brain though it may be, it keeps consistently coming up with AMAZING THINGS!

Aiee, his snappy patter! One of his powers is his Knit Wit!

If he gets chosen for the Rogues' Gallery, would that be picking a Knit?

If he sticks to shoplifting, would he be a pinch-Knitter?

I'll stop now.

He was moved to become a supervillain when a gunsel snagged his mom's best sweater in a dark alley, causing her to shed her purls all over the place.

On a completely different tangent, has Supergirl's love of knitting survived to the new universe?

From: [personal profile] perletwo
If it hasn't then this guy needs to be her badboy antihero love interest whose fiberous attraction she just can't quite resist. "You - you mean you can make something that will keep my knees warm? Amazing!"

On a not quite completely different tangent (thinking of the story my icon comes from), has Chloe Sullivan survived to the new universe that we know of yet?

Here is my forecast:
1. After much pleading by fans DC features this character in a batman comic.
2. The character's popularity rises.
3. In the year 2083 a Judge rules that DC can go ahead with the release of the major motion picture The Knitter 2: Master of Scarves. This is only the latest development in the court battle been waged for 20 years between the original knitter photographed, the web artist, and DC.

Now I have this ridiculous image that after Batman defeats him, he takes his scarf to put amongst his other trophies in the cave.

And occasionally, when it gets really cold in there while he's on the bat!computer, he puts it on.

karunya: This reverend puts the "fun" back into "funeral" (Default)
From: [personal profile] karunya
I am loving this whole meme so much! It's about time that male needleworkers get their props (my dad taught me how to embroider and crochet). DC has previously shown Supergirl and Wonder Woman knitting, but never a male (that I know of). I mean, the Flash probably does it, but nobody sees him -- he just shows up with a new sweater everyday, all winter. (Actually, the Knitter seems more like a Flash rogue, now that I think about it.)

I teach loom knitting in nursing homes, and illustrate the flyers with a pic of Wondie knitting. But my dirty little secret is that my best students are almost always men. And it raises their self-esteem to incredible heights, because they're learned a new skill and discovered a way to help others. Sitting on my table right now are two full trash bags of loom-knitted hats, which I'll deliver to homeless shelters and similar places. We do a couple HUNDRED hats every year.
