A retrospective on an anachronistic resurrectee

It is very hard to find particular Superosity strips in the Superosity archives! There are so many to sort through, and when you start looking you get distracted by so many great things. This has caused a delay in my attempts to fill the world with knowledge.

So now we know the truth about Original Movie. It was wrested from Chris's hands because he got angry with somebody who killed Orko.

It is interesting to see Boardy's reaction to this. He is proud of Chris. You may ask why. Well may you ask why. Why may you ask well? Well, Boardy cares little for He-Man personally. The reason must run deeper than that. And I think I have it.

At one point, and I can't find that point so shed a little tear for the missing hyperlink, Chris put a poster of Boardy up on his wall. In explanation of this, Chris said that Boardy was a crazy looking guy like Alf or Orko.

Boardy realises that part of his charm to Chris is that he is like a cartoon sidekick. In Boardy's mind, when Chris vehemently defends Orko's honour, Chris is defending Boardy's honour. This must make him as happy as if he had been given a new pair of gold shoes despite not having feet.

So Dracula from the future may be put off until the future, but a solid friendship is confirmed.

Is The Spelling For Original Movie Just As Good?

Now that Chris has finished his screenplay (leaving us to wonder whether Boardy caved and let him plagiarise his future self), let us cast our minds back to the last time he wrote a script.

Whatever happened to You Gonna Get Rich? It would have been a super fantastic show for those of us who like turning off the television with a vague desire to shoot ourselves in the head. It is a shame the end of the writer's strike undermined the budding series' marketability. With luck, it will be reprised as a subplot in Original Movie.

Plagiarising Spoilers

Time travel is one of the greatest things that almost seems possible but is possibly impossible. As a plot device it is both grand and groovy. It just generally wants to make you say gr. That means that grotesque and grisly are also valid adjectives, but let us stick with grand and groovy. As Superosity makes extensive use of time travel, we will abide no negative connotations.

What greater evidence is there of the virtues of temporal manipulation than seeing Boardy come back from a journey through time and space and accuse Chris of ripping off the very movie that he is making? If greater evidence does exist, it no doubt lies somewhere within Superosity's own archives.

There is however something sinister in that exchange. If it's so popular that Boardy has heard people talking about it, why did he not recognise the names of the creators? Is this an evil future in which movies do not credit directors and producers? Is someone going to usurp development of the movie? A dark edge adds to the complexity of this comic.

When Slime Bastard gulps, so do we

Since my last post, I have discovered that Marlene suddenly being revealed as 19 has some similarities with a change recently imparted on some characters in the widely-beloved and widely-reviled PVP. That's Superosity for you, finger on the pulse and keeping up with the latest trends.

Today it was revealed that The Dracula movie is to have a monster called "Slime Bastard." It is a very sad thing when slime daddies leave slime mothers pregnant out of wedlock and then skedaddle. No wonder he is such an angry individual.

The most fascinating aspect of Slime Bastard's introduction is probably right here. In this strip, Chris announces that the monster which made Darlene faint and snuck up on Matthew McConaughey is animatronic. Then Matthew McConaughey is swallowed by the monster, and we are made to wonder... was Chris mistaken? Is it a real monster after all? The punchline would be funny whether there really was a midget in there or not. No sooner has our anxiety been allevieated than we are given reason to worry for Matthew McConaughey's life all over again.

The following strip concludes once and for all (probably) that the monster was animatronic. We see the angry midget who pilots the beast and apparently prefers to be called a "little person." After a three day journey, we can finally sit at complete ease. This is the sort of crazy roller coaster that Superosity takes us on all the time. It's a new heart attack every minute. No wonder Superosity has to pay such careful attention to the pulse.
