Let’s face it: Superheroes and villains usually date each other. It’s who they work with and hang around the most — but those jobs are stressful (and villains are evil) so these relationships rarely last. But when heroes manage to date regular people, these people often get murdered and stuffed in refrigerators, so there’s a pretty high turnover rate of these relationships. So this online dating service for superheroes and regular people, envisioned by the nerd girls of Team Unicorn, makes a lot of sense. You know what makes even more sense?

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.
