Alter Egos

This week I found myself emphathizing with Dr. Bruce Banner as I struggled to keep my inner emotional Hulk under wraps when someone pushed my buttons one too many times. Normally I am as mild-mannered as Dr. Banner, but certain behavior riles me to the point of gigantic, green, clothes-ripping madness. I wished I could unleash all the strength of my true feelings upon this person and give them a serious smackdown, then blame it on my alter ego who I have no control over.

Alas, I do not have said alter ego, but it got me to thinking about some well-known alter egos; Bruce Wayne/Batman, Peter Parker/Spiderman, Clark Kent/Superman, etc. These comic heros have been done and redone so many times. I think it's time to see some new alter ego creations. Anyone up for the challenge?

Hopefully my nemesis will back off a little next week so the Hulk will stay dormant. As the comic says, "The madder Hulk gets, the stronger Hulk gets." So there.

Oh yeah, and Happy Easter everybody. :)


  1. Hmmm...that's a good idea, actually. I bet Joss Whedon had the same notion when he penned Dr. Horrible. Now, what kind of alter-ego creation hasn't yet been created?

    You've got my wheels turning on this one, bud :-)

  2. wow, who'd have thunk it. sorry to here he Hulk was ignited this week Blush. Hope all goes well with your Easter.Think fuzzy bunnies =)

  3. Go for it Graham, but if you end up making millions from a project that is the result of this prompt, I expect to be mentioned in your acknowledgements. :)

    No worries Donna, the Hulk is securely under wraps and visions of fuzzy bunnies are dancing in my head.
