The Momentum Is Growing

Our next big arc is called 'League of Losers' and it's going to run from issue #15 to issue #18. ... It's really my love letter to D-list Marvel characters. I think all these guys have merit and should be given the limelight from time to time. Who am I talking about? Well, Darkhawk, Sleepwalker, Terror Inc, and SuperPro for starters--there will be many others who participate through the course of the book as well, but I'll keep them under wraps for the time being.

Can you feel the power? Can you feel the surge? Can you feel the zeitgeist?

Thursday, I give NFL SuperPro some love. Friday, MainManMike at 2005 Will Eisner Spirit of Comics Retailer Award Winning Night Flight Comics says he thinks he can get me a copy from the other store. Saturday, I start trying to catch up on all the links I missed while punk'd with the flu and find through the latest "Joe Fridays" that Kirkman loves the SuperPro, too.

When asked about it, though, Joe puts an immediate dampener on my joy:

NRAMA: "Mr. Wesley"” asks: If what Robert Kirkman has said about NFL SuperPro's appearance in Marvel Team-Up is accurate, who owns the rights to the character, Marvel, the NFL or is it jointly owned?
JQ: I need to speak to Mr. Kirkman in private.

It's obviously a grass-roots thing, Joey. It's like '68, except with NFL SuperPro, instead of LSD and flowers in your hair. It is spreading and growing in power, this SuperPro love ... don't let The Man get us down.

Perhaps you could post about how nice it would be for me to win the next Powerball jackpot without even buying a ticket.

I will work on that.

But JoeyDaQ would just shut you down, and oppress you anyways.
