It’s been a while since we did an “ask me anything/make requests” post, so here is one.
(Requests for “more original comics” will be noted in the “are you an artist if not then learn to draw” file.)
Any thoughts on the current use / overuse of Deadpool?
How’s the job going?
What are Flapjacks thoughts on the current use/overuse of Deadpool?
How is Flapjacks job going?

NBA owners D&D alignment chart
Speaking of Deadpool, any thoughts on the current Posehn/Duggan series? I dropped it after like 5 issues, and I had a nearly complete run of Deadpool comics up to that point.
What comics do you think are worth picking up? (I ask this in part because I loved the TV version of Batman Beyond and I’m curious about the new Batgirl Beyond but I haven’t been reading BB Unlimited.)
Do you think there will be a fourth ‘Before’ movie (and on a related note, should there be)?
I always enjoy hearing about board games. More board-game talk!
I like Canadian politics posts. It’s nice to see that our neighbors to the north have at least some crazy in their national character.
Also, anything in the vein of the Conversations posts (http://mightygodking.com/category/bad-comedy/conversations/). Any chance of more stuido execs (maybe a television edition)?
Undertaker through the ages WWF/WWE alignment chart.
There is a Deadpool game released on Steam. The trailer makes it seem pretty slapstick.
Saw your Tweets about Pacific Rim and, much as I would love to see it succeed, completely agreed with your Tumblr post before it was released. Any other thoughts on it?
Legal commentaries, or thoughts on big cases that people may not be aware of being decided in US and Canada.
Movie reviews (with or without flapjacks)
What old properties shouldn’t have any modern adaptations?
2 Man 2 Steel is going to feature Lex Luthor and they’ve talked about businessman-genius Luthor. (It’s not official, but come ON.) How best to translate Luthor to the big screen?
Have you been reading the Adventures of Superman digital-first series, or are you still on vacation from DC due to their mistreatment of creators?
First, joining in the clamor for more posts about board games: I love hearing your takes on them.
Second, have you read Locke and Key and if so, what are your thoughts on it?
What are your thoughts on the current season of SYTYCD? Is it just me or are the hip-hop routines actually, y’know, hip-hop? Even the ones choreographed by NappyTabs?
What are your thoughts on Moon Knight?
Seconding a WWF/WWE alignment chart. Also, on the subject of wrestling, any thoughts on Chikara’s recent…I’m not sure, closing? Crisis? Massive, potentially brilliant storyline?
Thoughts, as both a comic book fan and Torontonian, about Captain Canuck?
Common Law Alignment Chart

Eurogame Alignment Chart
Holy crap I was actually hoping for one of these recently!
Your Dr. Strange series has been amazing. Any chance you’ll do (or even a few one-shots) of “I Should Write Superman”? Or what you would do if you had a year’s run of Action/Superman/some other similar book?
And full agreement on the overuse of Deadpool, I want your take on that one.
I think MGK has already written what he’d do with Superman, but there are so many references to the character on this site that google’s been useless. If I recall correctly, it was “solves his universe’s problems, goes off to save all of them, meets a new Lois who had a year of comics before that.”
Unless that was Chris Sims or someone.
What’s your favourite in-continuity story for each of the following characters that DOESN’T significantly affect the status quo :
I’d like to hear your take on the recent SCOTUS ruling that kinda-maybe overturns the Fifth Amendment, please.
Who do you feel is the best Canadian hero from either company? Similarly, which is the best non-American/Canadian hero from either company?
WB/DC has recently stated that Sandman is at the top of their lists for movie adaptations. How would you do it?

What tabletop games could be made into a movie?
What would they be like in the New 52: reboot happy/goofy DC characters like Woozy Winks or Fatman the human flying saucer for the new Grymm and Grytttty DC
Have you ever danced with the devil by the pale moonlight? And if so, which version of the devil in popular culture was it?
The current best Super Hero Comic is One-Punch Man.
Dual inquiry-Will you do another “I should write…” series on another one of your favorite comic characters/groups?
If the answer is no, if you did do one, what comic character/group would it be?
I’d love you’re thoughts on whether “Modern” superhero stories such as Ultimates or current Cape Movies are sellable or even compatible with the style of Kirby, Ditko, and the old guard.
1) Should Star Trek come back with a TV series, and if so what should be the setup? Place it within the Abramsverse or the original universe?
2) Is a Wonder Woman movie ever doable? Hollywood just can’t seem to figure it out…
3) Peanut butter: Crunchy or Creamy?
RobotKeaton: if there’s a late night host alignment chart, Leno has to be Chaotic Evil. HAS TO.
LG: Johnny Carson
TN: Ted Koppel (I know, but Nightline should count for something)
A late night host alignment chart that doesn’t have Jon Stewart on it has automatically failed.
I’d be interested in catching up with the Bigwig and his merry crew of miscreants.
Did you read the twin ‘Life with Archie: The Married Life’ series? (I have started but not yet finished them/it myself; they/it have/has been, occasionally, off the hook.) Any thoughts on a) the death of status quo and b) the wholehearted embrace of freaky multiversal shenanigans?
D&D alignment chart – any fictional character, in any universe, that represents each alignment the best.
Also, any thoughts on Superior Spider-Man?
…actually, let me combine a few of these I’m seeing: alignment chart of comic artists, any or all eras.
@RAC: Might I submit Pat Lee for Chaotic Evil?
What’s your favorite type of donut?
If you were hired to write Wonder Woman, either a movie or a comic (year one, elseword, all star, whatever) what would write?
PaulW: I’d put Leno more as Lawful Evil. In taking his show back, he was just following the rules. It was a shit move, but it was done by the books.
SCOTUS alignment chart? There are 9 of them…
Moving away from Alignment Charts, a more lengthy Who’s Who than the last one. How about the Question, since Trinity War seems determined to repeat the Grundy incident to a factor of 90?
Second the “Are you reading/interested in Adventures of Superman at all?” question. Bar the OSC incident, it’s head and shoulders above any New 52 Superman book.
Flapjacks. I would literally read Flapjacks reading the phonebook.
@RAC, why don’t we make that a little broader: Comic book creators (both writers and artists) alignement chart.
More El Tyrano Magnifico
I was a big fan of Strikeforce Morituri back in the day which wasn’t technically part of Marvel’s ‘New Universe’, but which was part of Marvel branching out in new directions.
I thought the premise was pretty cool, and I missed it when it was gone. Especially since my series was ‘borrowed’ by a friend in college and never returned.
I’ve always wished the series came back (there was no Electric Undertow), and there have always been workings in the background to bring it the either small or large screen that have come to nothing.
My question: Did you ever read S:M? If so what were your thoughts on it?
Additionally, do you think that 10 years from now DC / Marvel will still be basically chewing over variants of the same current characters, occasionally shuffling the cards together and dealing out new teams?
Why is DC “reinventing” the Question and the Creeper as virtually unrecognizable from their previous versions? What do they have to gain? Are fans of those characters happy to see them as an immortal seeker of whatever or a demon who lives in a sword, respectively?
Follow-up question: DC goes through periods of Kirby worship, but never seems to appreciate Ditko’s characters as much. Why?
Give the Mega Man comic a read. It’s hard not to like a comic where most of the characters are robots.

What are your thoughts on the current state of Marvel?
-Nicolas Cage, William Fichtner, and Sean Bean Alignment charts
-A Spidey essay expanding on your idea of him as Marvel’s most important character a la your Superman and Luthor essays
-more Movies You Probably Haven’t Seen But Should (may I suggest Streets of Fire and Mark Dacascos’s Drive?)
@PaulW: You put Ted Koppel on that list and neglected to include Fallon? For shame, sir (also Fallon gets Chaotic Good).
okay but for real…
–Childhood nerd culture with Photoshopped titles!!
–are you following xkcd’s “Time”?
–In how many ways is xkcd’s “Time” superior to JJ Abrams’s “LOST”?
–Have you heard about the project to scour the globe for the missing Doctor Who episodes and how apparently that’s going quite well?
–Did we all hate Scrappy Doo back in the day? Or was it just me and my few friends?
So Yahoo is shutting down tumblr smut. A reasonable business move or the beginning of the end of tumblr as we know it?
You blog a fair amount about board games but what about other games? Pen and paper RPGs? Video games?
Genres you love? Ones you hate?
Do you follow any non-American comics?
Steranko on twitter; crazy awesome or just crazy?
I mentioned it as a joke but it seems to be gaining traction: Spin City Alignment Chart
Actually Alignment charts in general are fun. How about Discworld or Dresden Files?
Okay, trying out the “alignment chart alignment chart” thing.
The Muppet Show – Christmas Specials – Christopher Walken
Shakespeare – General TV – The Love Boat
Game of Thrones 1-3 – Golden Age of Comedy – Search Engines
14th Amendment is about as close to True Neutral of the amendments as I could think. While the citizenship passage is lawful good, the primary element of the 14th is the Due Process clause, which can be a great leveler of things.
Did we all hate Scrappy Doo back in the day? Or was it just me and my few friends?
No, everyone hated him, even in the 70s. It’s part of what made the reveal in the Scooby Movie so awesome.
Also: DAMMIT, MGK! I actually had a “I wish MGK would do another open house so he could answer this random question that just occurred to me” moment a couple weeks ago, and now of course I can only remember it happened, not what the damn question was.
Oh, here’s one:
Which is the most overplayed, really-limited-joke character in mainstream comics, Deadpool or Lobo?
Why I should write a giant cross crossover comic event.
I’d like to second a few things:
Your essays on Superman and Lex Luthor are great and I’d love to see one about Spider-Man since i find myself thinking about the character a lot lately. Do you think the character still feels vital or has he stagnated?
Your thoughts on Superior Spider-Man would be nice. Personally I find the whole premise too creepy and violation-y to get into, but maybe you could sell me on it, or back up my prejudices.
Steranko on Twitter, what do you think?
And for something of my own, what are your thoughts n Agents of SHIELD? Does it sound interesting/good to you? Do you think the whole shadowy but benevolent government organization thing looks a lot worse in light of recent events re: the NSA aand Prism? I’ve recently been reevaluating the Marvel movie universe and your insight would be helpful in figuring this whole thing out.
Oh, do you have any thoughts on Ultimate Cataclysm and mainstream Galactus’ arrival in the Ultimate universe? Do you think this is the end of the imprint and if so what are your thoughts looking back on it?
Since he seems to have sold his soul to be able to handle a dozen B-level quasi-history shows at once (and just. keeps. drawing. me. in.), what TV show will Don Wildman host next?
What are your thoughts and/or predictions on the new TV series Almost Human due out in the fall?
How would you pitch a Legion Of Superheroes movie? What would the plot and cast be?
What would be your Dream Line-Up for Hollywood Game Night?
Mine might be Team Firefly (Nathan Fillion, Gina Torres & Adam Baldwin) versus Team BSG (Tricia Helfer, James Callis & Mary McDonnell). Team captains: me & MGK
What do you think of Ultron being in Avengers 2 without Hank Pym? Is it an interesting move or does it strip Pym of one of his greatest stories?
[…] From last week’s open house: […]
Not sure if this is too late, but what do you think of the current Young Avengers?
Hi, I have come from the future to ask you NOT to talk about Superior Spider Man.
