That crazy cat behind the oft-hysterical Marvel Vs. DC YouTube series has done it again, this time focusing on the awkward situation between Green Lantern and Deadpool, since both are supposed to be played by Ryan Reynolds. There is no better what to end my Topless Robot broadcast day than with this video. Frankly, I’m ready for Marvel to just give these guys a Deadpool comic series. Or let them write the script for the movie. Whatever. Just put this dude in charge of Deadpool. I don’t think he’d disappoint us.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
