Major Spoilers Question Of The Day: Aquatic Nerdfight Edition


Yesterday, on the Twitter, our very own Chris Wilson, review snaker extraordinaire and all-around knockabout guy, posited a posit that shook the very foundations of Major Spoilers: Could Aquaman control C’thulhu?  Stephen, with his arcane knowledge of all things Lovecraft and pulp, insisted no, while I with my reverence for the world of comics, maintain that the math should work.  While I certainly understand the counter-argument Stephen threw at me (‘Aquaman can’t control people who live in houseboats!’), I think that the true measure of any theoretical is what makes for a better story afterwards, and for my money, the idea of Arthur Curry defending the entirety of reality with only his big rubbery head is a compelling one.  Thus, we must take our conflict to a higher authority: You, the Faithful Spoilerites, which brings us to today’s brain-powered query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) reminds the cynics among us that *Eric Cartman* was able to control C’thulhu, and since he’s in the public domain, that’s a canonical appearance, asking: Should Aquaman be able to telepathically control (or TRY to control) C’thulhu?
