Hey there, Evil Geeks! This week’s show finds the host of The Indie Lounge, Mandy Del Rio, stopping by the Evil Lair. Mandy talks with C-Mart and Paulo Pinta about hosting The Indie Lounge, everyone talks about what their dream interviews would be and much more! You can check out The indie Lounge website for more info about the show at indieloungetv.com.
While metahumans, mutants, and demigods certainly outperform actual police officers in terms of apocalypse prevention and supervillain apprehension, they are more often than not sorely lacking in another important aspect of crime fighting; Undercover work.
Take a guy like Daredevil, for instance. Daredevil can sit on a rooftop enjoying a cup of coffee (if someone who can taste each and every individual fecal coliform can ever truly enjoy anything) and listen to entire blocks of the city at a time, pinpointing crimes and swooping in to save the day. And all without the use of his eyes! However, when it comes to getting his hands dirty and doing some deep cover reconnaissance, he sticks out like a sore thumb.
I mean, maybe he doesn’t know that wearing sunglasses indoors is a fairly uncommon? He’s sitting in a bar in Manhattan in the early 1980s, I’d say we’re probably talking about a dimly lit joint. The gang here at Josie’s Bar know that this stranger is either a blind person or a serious douchebag. Like a Guy Fieri level douchebag. He has to let them know that he’s just a tough customer! A rough and tumble street smart fella who doesn’t take any guff from any tuff, and what better way to demonstrate than to toss a few guys through a window.
Hey, “Shades”…. you know who throws people through that window all of the time? Daredevil. If you want to hide the fact that you’re Daredevil, try acting a bit less like Daredevil.
The Rocketeer is a character who has done a good job worming its way into the American consciousness over the last 30 or so years, without really doing much. I had loved the 1991 Disney movie when I was a kid, but when I watched it as an adult I felt strangely let down. IDW eventually acquired the rights to the character and put out all of the different parts that make up Dave Stevens main story and released them as a collection. It was time for me to finally investigate the hype.
Remember last year’s amazing Big Wow! cosplay pictures? Well get ready for more! Lilith will be at the event this weekend in San Jose, CA- you too could be part of the Evil Geeks Lair if your sporting some amazing cosplay. See you there! And yes, I too will be sporting my cosplay, maybe some of you will recognize me?
