A great sadness fell over Irish blogosphere when Big Mental Disease announced his retirement by saying I’m afraid so.
Gammagoblin made a nice video tribute. He led the north Koreans in mourning – I didn’t know BMD was so popular north of the DMZ but nothing surprises me any more.
(I am not sure why gammagoblin chose to wear rubber gloves but the paranoia of being identified by his hands speaks volumes).
Maybe the weight of being a masked superhero became too much for the Big Mentaller. I hope he fares better in retirement than ‘the comedian’ from Watchmen did:
In October 1985, New York City police are investigating the murder of Edward Blake. With the police having no leads, costumed vigilante Rorschach decides to probe further. Discovering Blake to be the face behind The Comedian, a costumed hero employed by the United States government, Rorschach believes he has discovered a plot to eliminate costumed adventurers and sets about warning four of his retired comrades, Dan Dreiberg (formerly the second Nite Owl), the superpowered and emotionally detached Doctor Manhattan and his lover Laurie Juspeczyk (the second Silk Spectre), and Adrian Veidt (once the hero Ozymandias, and now a successful businessman).
To be honest I think the blogging community is more like Mystery Men than the watchmen:
When Captain Amazing, chief superhero of Champion City, is kidnapped by insane super villain Casanova Frankenstein, who will save the city and ensure that justice is served?
Enter the Mystery Men: Mr. Furious, The Bowler, The Blue Raja, The Shoveler, The Spleen, The Sphinx, and the Invisible Boy- a group of misfits in possession of superpowers…sort of.
Watch the mayhem ensue, as this wacky team goes up against Frankenstein and his mad henchmen.
And yes, before anyone asks, yes, I think I am the shoveller
