As for Aquaman, I’m reminded of a short-lived but brilliantly funny sketch comedy show on MTV about 10 years ago called “The State.” They did a Justice League Sketch, and it went something like this…
[Assorted Superheroes are milling about.]
[Flash runs in, and stops, out of breath.]
Superman: Flash! waht’s wrong?
[wonder woman, batman, etc, make other comments]
Aquaman: Can I get you some water?
[Sketch goes on. Flash reveals the crisis. Superman delegates duties.]
SM: Batman! Go do [something]. Flash! Use your super speed to [whatever.] Wonder Woman! Use your magic lariat to [something else]. I’ll stand here and look manly. wink Aquaman!
SM: You go…
[pause, superman starts to bust up]
SM: Talk to some fish!
[EVERYONE points and laughs at Aquaman as they walk off to do their duties.]
Yeah, Batman, favorite hero, cuz he’s so dark and neurotic, etc. (I like heroes with MENTAL ISSUES).
Joker, favorite villian ever, yep, duh, just for pure sickness and that wacky sense of humor he has. Introducing the Joker singlehandedly convinced me to give that Justice league cartoon another chance. (Okay, a sarcastic Flash helps too).
Actually, been watching the 1989 Batman film again, just cuz this dude at work and I get a real kick out of Nicholson’s joker and take turns quoting dialogue. Our favorite is the pirate advertisment for NEW AND IMPROVED JOKER PRODUCTS! (With the Secret Ingredient: Smiley!) hee hee
I’d like to give some of those fine items to some of our ruder customers, actually.
