Anytime ItsJustSomeRandomGuy posts one of his “I’m a Marvel / I’m a DC” videos, it’s generally worthy of posting. Given that this is his 100th video in the series, I’d say it’s doubly worthy. The fact that it’s a musical, well… probably quadruply worthy at least. But the fact that the musical is amazingly written and totally fucking brilliant? Hell, I should be asking permission to feature such majesty on my pitiful little nerd-blog. Thanks to DE12 for the tip.
Speaking of pitiful, I’m sorry for all the brief posts today. Hopefully I’ll have my internet connection back and I won’t have to travel from soul-crushing location with free wifi to soul-crushing location wifi tomorrow and TR‘ll be back up to snuff. If not, at least I’ll be prepared this time.
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.
