Sometimes, it’s difficult to decide between two good things.  One sometimes isn’t sure whether one wants chocolate or peanut butter, between surf and turf, between things and ideas.  Sometimes, you wake up at the crack of noon, and think “It’s gig time…  What T-shirt am I gonna wear?  Can’t decide… Can’t DECIDE..  BRAIN ANEURYSM!!!”  The same is often true of our pop culture, such as combining Cain Marko and Meredith Brooks (bonus points for those who got that) and inevitably leading to today’s burning query…

About Author

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.


  1. SmarkingOut Adam on

    Superman and Gambit. Really, really, ridiculously, painfully, stupidly powerful, but cool instead of a boring doorknob.

  2. Batman and the Doctor, the worlds greatest detective and a time traveling genius, evil doers beware.

  3. Black Lanterns and Marvel Zombies to create an all out war against life through the multiverse.

    You didn’t say they had to be good guys, after all.

    • As for a heroic merge, I’m going with a merging of the arsenal rather than the characters.

      The Omnitrix (from Ben 10) and Mobirate (from Gokaiger).

  4. Wolverine and Task Master? “The best he is at what he does” and the guy who does everything?
