On occasion, a hero is called to make The Ultimate Sacrifice™, giving their own life for a greater good.

And sometimes, just sometimes, that hero is the only thing standing between survival and universal Armageddon…  Welcome to Ten Things!

Whooshman-Bicarbonate Films, in conjunction with ‘An Amateur Comics Historian’ and Pre-Crisis Barry Allen, Presents:



Hailing from the alternative world known as Earth-12, Calvin Rankin’s life was far different from his Earth-616 counterpart.  After a long tour of duty with The Exiles, repairing the time stream and various alternate realities, The Mimic was possessed by Proteus, a reality-warping mutant madman.  Unlike any other mind Proteus ever possessed, though, Calvin was able to resist his possession, even influencing his mind enough to manipulate Proteus into combat with another superhuman, keeping Proteus from possessing the most powerful being in that universe, but finally giving his own life (#TheUltimateSacrifice™) to do so.

    The Executioner, that was great stuff. Being Nordic myself, I feel this Thor run is probably the best that character will ever get.

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.
