The H Dial: Device of unknown but probably mystical origin that allows the user to transform into different costumed super-heroes for a limited time.

The Omnimatrix: Device of alien origin that allows the use to transform into different super-powered alien hybrids, likewise for a limited time.

Either device has the potential to make you super, with the potential drawback of a goofy name, a disgusting form, useless powers or all of the above.  Then again, those same caveats apply to life, leading to today’s transmogrified query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) figures this one will come down to the argument of Cool Caped Super-Duper vs. Cool Monstery Guy and I know which side I’m on, asking: H-Dial Or Omnimatrix?


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. With the Omnimatrix you are limited to 10 forms at a time. The H-Dial can theoretically be one of any thousands of super-beings.
    H-Dial wins hands down.
