...How do they explain this? (If they do, that is.) Does he have some sort of breathing apparatus and that's why his back is to us? Or...?

I'm assuming this is from the Super/Bat arc in Superman/Batman, where Batman temporarily got Superman's powers. (Which I haven't read, thus the 'assume'.)

The first thing I noticed was the cape ass. This place has finally corrupted me.


How the fuck is his cape blowing in space?

His cape isn't blowing, it's scared, and is trying as hard as it can to get away from him..

Poor thing... It wanted the same sort of close, loving relationship with it's wearer as it saw another nearby cape having

and got very frustrated....

Well, that is some pretty ass... The people who don't appreciate it should be more ashamed of themselves. That is to say, S_D mostly only corrupts people in good ways.

If he has Superman's powers, I can buy "not breathing at all" ... but if he is actually breathing in space, I want to know *what* he's breathing.

No, no, he's breathing IN space.

He's breathing OUT pure awesome. (Which is, chemically, a carbon atom bonded to two space atoms.)

They actually referenced a Shortpacked running gag in a DC comic? Really? Does Dave Willis know?

I think it goes without saying that a comic book writer will be a geek.
deliandra: Loki thoughtfull (Default)

[personal profile] deliandra 2010-06-25 09:41 pm (UTC)(link)
If you define geek as "computer/internet nerd", I wouldn't say so. Not everyone I know who likes comics likes the internet and it's memes. ;)

[personal profile] psychopathicus_rex 2010-06-26 07:10 am (UTC)(link)
I think 'geek' has a much broader definition than that. Someone who is really into fixing up old cars, for instance, can be termed a geek, if they're enthusiastic and technobabblish enough.
deliandra: Baby Terry with wig (Baby Terry)

[personal profile] deliandra 2010-06-26 10:14 am (UTC)(link)
Well.. that would define it as "technology nerd", which would broaden it considerably, but still not include comic nerds. ;)

[personal profile] psychopathicus_rex 2010-06-26 11:38 am (UTC)(link)
I think 'tech nerd' or 'science nerd' are pretty good ways to define a geek, generally speaking - 'math nerd' might qualify, as well. Anybody can be a nerd, but it requires a certain level of specialized constructive know-how to qualify as a geek. I, for example, am a nerd on a number of different levels, but I'm hopeless at anything scientific, mathematic or technological, so I'm therefore not a geek. (Or you could just simplify things by saying that geeks are nerds who have the capacity to create and/or modify things and concepts that society as a whole may find useful, whereas us nerds, basically speaking, are bloody useless, and merrily so.)
deliandra: Baby Terry with wig (Baby Terry)

[personal profile] deliandra 2010-06-26 01:22 pm (UTC)(link)
But then you are in the need to define what is useful. Because actually everything we do is at least indirectly helpful to society. ;)

The definition I grew up with is:
- Nerds have one favorite subject they know a lot about; so there is comic nerds, music nerds, sports nerds, science nerds, etc.
- Geeks are computer nerds and/or internet freaks. They know just as much about the newest micro processor as about the newest meme.

And that is pretty much the definition I am sticking to.

Which still means that a comic writer is not by any means a geek. ;)

[personal profile] psychopathicus_rex 2010-06-26 09:47 pm (UTC)(link)
Your definition and mine are not too far apart, really - it's just that my definition expands 'geek' into other fields of scientific study as well.
And yes, of course nerds can be helpful to society. What I meant was that their nerdish tendencies, in and of themselves, are not useful. One can be, say, a Pulitzer-prize winning author as well as being obsessed with Superman, but it's the former part that will do good in the world, not the latter.
And I never said they were.

Reminds of the "I'm the Juggernaut bitch!" line in X3.

The internet has an effect.

[personal profile] khamelea 2010-06-26 12:46 am (UTC)(link)
I never thought the Juggernaut line was funny, so I wouldn't want to compare the two.

But, yes, it has! And it's frightening.

So I'm assuming this came out before the "I'm Batman and I can breathe in space" bit from Shortpacked!, and that Shortpacked! was referencing this?

Or did Superman/Batman rip off Shortpacked!?

Or is it all an awesome coincidence?
