DIC Super Heroes Unite!

Posted 22 March 2008 - 09:16 AM

In a recent post I had someone I helped refer to me as their hero. So it got me thinking, we here at DIC are often called heroes. Bailing people out of tight deadlines, clearing up problems to avoid hours of painstaking mistakes, swooping in to save the day with a different and more efficient approach to a problem.

So what comic super hero would you relate to each of the DIC members below and why? (Please keep it to actual super heroes that exist in the mainstream comic world)

eg. Supersloth - Superman because he seems to be unphased by comments, flies around the board dropping in to pay a visit, and punching out badies with the one liners.

Here are some of the helpers you can compare (feel free to name other DIC helpers)...

1) Skyhawk133
2) Supersloth
3) PsychoCoder
4) NickDMax
5) no2pencil
6) Amadeus
7) Born2Code
8) snoj
9) Programmist
10) Nykc
11) letthecolorsrumble
12) 1lacca
13) Martyr2

Lets keep this clean and fun thanks! :D

I am going to say that Capty99 is Archangel who was outed as gay in the comics. Archangel came out in comic 1602 #6. He first appeared in the Xmen comic series (and anyone who has seen the animated series knows who he is).

I only say that is capty99 because first of all his gay discussion threads, is flighty on the boards, and appears to be some what righteous when he wants to be.

I don't have any idea what that means. I'm a little afraid guess. :P

Not sure how to apply labels to labels. If Skyhawk133 is Professor X, I'm reasonably sure Supersloth is Wolverine. Maybe Martyr2 is Beast, Nykc as Nightcrawler...

That's all I got.

I am always cast as the villain in plays. One director asked me if it bothered me, and I told him no. He said, "thats good, because you do it so well."

I took that to mean that I will forever be typecast as the villain.

I suppose that the Silver Surfer is sorta a villain in that he is the harbinger of Galactus. It a sort of halfway role. (yea... I had to look that up.)

Looks like somebody did there homework. I was trying to describe you from merely reading some of your tutorials and posts, and that was the best I could come up with, without trying to find outright villians.

When I was more active on the site (before my life got incredibly busy) I was "hero" to those who hated to ask for help because they'd rather do it themselves. These are the people who hate being spoon fed and would rather just have a small nudge in the right direction. Very rare people indeed. So, I have been "hero" to people who are there own heros, and therefore I was no one's hero. So, I don't think I belong on that list. Thanks anyway though. :)
