It takes lots of plastic to be the Man of Steel

Blog Guy, who’s your favorite superhero? Mine is Superman. I love the whole story of being sent here in a rocket from the planet Krypton by his scientist father, Jor-El, and how he….

Right! I love that, too. And the rocket landing in the Philippines, and…

Er, no, he was raised by the kindly Kents, and…

And then he disguised himself by…

By wearing a business suit and a snap-brim hat and glasses, and…

No, by having plastic surgery on his nose, cheeks, lips, chin and thighs, and changed his skin color, and…

Wait… Plastic surgery? Changed his skin color?

And then became a “pageant trainer” and opened some costume stores…

Blog Guy, are you back on the crystal meth? What in the HELL version of Superman did you read, anyway?

It’s me! Please! It’s really me!

Blog Guy, I heard a weird rumor from my barista’s used car dealer.

What are the chances of that? What did he say?

You know the Wonder Woman character from the comic books?

He said Wonder Woman got really rich from those stories over the years, but went sort of crazy, and that now a comic book cartel is keeping her under wraps to avoid bad publicity.

Now she lives as a glamorous recluse in her own little world, trying to convince strangers of her true identity by showing old sketches of herself.

Mystery brunette with Prince William?

Blog Guy, I’m confused. I was walking past a toy shop in London and I saw a doll that looked like Prince William.

He was packaged with a female doll dressed as a bride. She looked vaguely familiar, but I couldn’t place her.

Cheese it! It’s Wonder Woman!

Blog Guy, you have a lot of inside info on politics and I’m hoping you can clear something up for me. I’ve heard that Sarah Palin may actually be Wonder Woman.

Whoa! You may be on to something there, Ace.

It all fits! Palin rides a motorcycle, just like the real Wonder Woman, and she always travels with her faithful calf, Shep, and her wise-cracking sidekick, Todd….

Curses! Here comes Big Red!

Blog Guy, I’m a young female who wants to become a super heroine, sort of like Wonder Woman. I know she was an Amazon. Any idea where she bought her costume?

I guess Amazon.com would be too obvious?

heroine redhead 240Oh. That makes sense. You’ve written about a place called Super-Chicks R Us. Are they still in business?
