Even from the moment he was conceived, Eric knew he was different, that Destiny had something different in store for him... a brilliant scholar and athlete, possessed of psychic powers beyond the ken of science, and empowered by the mighty Cudgel Of Amigonahaftabeatsensintaya given to him by the Gods Of Xyxzyz, Eric became the mighty, the terrible, the amazing...

THE GIANT MIDGET!


THE GIANT MIDGET LOOKS OUT OVER THE EMPTY LUNAR PLAIN AND PONDERS, ASKING THE INEVITABLE QUESTIONS--

WHERE HAS THE ORDINARY GODDESS GONE? AND WHY HAVEN'T HOT CHICK AND MOVIEMAKERMANIAC REPORTED BACK YET?

THE GIANT MIDGET GOT THE CALL FROM MORGAINE*--TROUBLE, SOME SINISTER MENACE, BUT NOW OUR BLUE LEVIATHAN HASN'T HEARD FROM THE RED-HAIRED WONDER IN SEVENTEEN HOURS... AND STILL THINGS REMAIN PEACEFUL--TOO PEACEFUL...

AND SO HE PONDERS... SURELY IF SOMETHING WERE AMISS, XAVIER WOULD HAVE CALLED HIM OR SOME REPORT WOULD HAVE COME IN FROM AVENGERS HEADQUARTERS; BUT--NOTHING!

AND SO OUR HERO WAITS--AND PONDERS--HIS MIGHTY CUDGEL WEIGHING HEAVY IN HIS HAND--WAITS FOR SOME CHANGE IN THE PASSIVE SCENE BEFORE HIS WEARY, MUTATED EYES...

AND COME BACK, NEXT SPECTACULAR ISS--FOR... THE WRATH OF VALKYRIE (AND SEAHAWKTAR)! DON'T MISS IT! (YOU'LL BE SORRY!)

*ring, ring*

GM: Err!

HC: Giant Midget, it's Hot Chick! I don't have much time!

GM: Err!

HC: You have to help us! Ordinary Goddess, MovieMarkerManiac and I have been taken prisoner!

GM: Err!

HC: Hurry! There's not time to...AARRRGGHH!

THE CALL COMES--AN URGENT PLEA FOR HELP! HE CRUSHES THE PHONE IN HIS MIGHTY BLUE PAW WITHOUT THINKING, ANOTHER PHONE DESTROYED BY HIS INHUMAN STRENGTH AND ABSENTMINDEDNESS!*

Sheesh--she could have at least told me where she was calling from!

LUMBERING OVER TO A NEARBY HILL, OUR BLUE HERO CROUCHES LOW--AND SPRINGS! LEAPING--AS HE HAS SO OFTEN LEAPT--FROM THE MOON BACK TO THE EARTH!

GM: Wha?

V: Hey midget boy, it's Valkyrie. If you're not with us you're against us. So if you're not an ally, then we're setting our super-magic-electric-magnetic blades on kill and coming after your blue ass, capische?

GM: Wha?

V: Whatever! Call us back when you WAKE UP.

(knock knock)

There is a knocking inside the skull of the Giant Midget.

GM: What the...?

Morgaine: Dude. Don't you check your voice mail?

GM: Voicemail?

Morgaine: On your PHONE?

GM: Crushed the phone.

Morgaine: (if you could hear a deep breath telepathically, that's what you'd be hearing now)

Morgaine: Giant. Listen. Listen carefully. We're WAITING for you. Here are the coordinates, now get your ass here ASAP.

Morgaine: (If you could telepathically hear someone leaving in a huff, that's what you'd be hearing now.)

GM: Bitch.

(Sorry I missed Valkyrie and Seahawktar--but that's been fixed in the final panel!)

Jeri Thursday, September 25, 2008 at 10:51:00 PM EDT  

It's a good thing you and Seahawktar found each other, you look like you could be light/dark twin lawyer giant midget brothers - one blue and one not, one liberal and one not, one into football and one sane, etc.

So do you need help rescuing the three drunken trollops? I mean the two drunken trollops and their hey-Mikey-he-likes-it sidekick?

Let me know. You'll have to use UHF radio since you crushed your cell phone.

"two drunken trollops and their hey-Mikey-he-likes-it sidekick?"

::snort::

Pepsi One accident. Thanks, Jeri.

Jeri Friday, September 26, 2008 at 6:07:00 PM EDT  

Actually, I'm not sure that your superhero alter-egos are drunken trollops. I mean, aren't superheroes impervious to alcohol, drugs and stinky tofu?

Although I'm not entirely sure the latter is a food or a weapon in this instance.

Eric Friday, September 26, 2008 at 7:37:00 PM EDT  

Iron Man is an alcoholic, The Flash got really messed up on angel dust (administered by a bad guy) back in a plot arc when I was a kid (the arc where Iris Allen died), and I'm pretty sure Superman ate a potful of stinky tofu right before Doomsday killed him.* So, Jeri, I'm afraid the answer to your question is, "no."

*Test your comic-book geekery: one of these three items is false--can you guess which one?
