Major Spoilers Question Of The Day: Idol Of Millions And Friend To All Children Edition


Ever since I threatened to do all the panels at Nerdtacular 2014 in a luchador mask, I’ve been considering how cool it might be to actually live la vida enmascarada, wearing my ceremonial mask at all times in public.  Of course, I wouldn’t want to be any old John Q. Public, I’d want to be at the top of the heap as El Santo, if only he weren’t currently deceased.  Now that I think of it, though, taking over anyone’s life would have such issues (though maybe not quite so terminal.)  I wouldn’t mind singing like Neil Patrick Harris, but couldn’t handle his rigorous diet and schedule, and while I wouldn’t mind having my own talk show like Dr. Oz, I am not a carnivorous alien robot powered by tears.  It’s a matter of balance and careful debate, which leads into today’s query…
