    Comic Book Guy from The Simpsons has gotten his own five isuue mini-series. In this issue, Comic Book Guy reinacts Prime's Death from the 86' movie. Look at the last pannel.

    Maybe he is the infamous Fattimus Prime cosplay pic that makes the photo rounds.

    But... he gets the dialogue wrong! Isn't that, like, a cardinal sin of geekdom??

    It was the 80's... Jason Todd, the second Robin. DC set up telephone lines where fans could phone in and vote on whether in a cliffhanger ending, Jason Todd would live or die. They chose death for him...

    ...which ended up being quite a legacy, because then for the next 20 years, nobody could stop talking about Jason Todd, and Batman ended up with some guilty complex about letting one of his proteges perish.

    In the last few years of Batman comics, Jason Todd has come back to life as an embittered badass vigilante. Whoopdeedoo...

    ...and now you know. I guess we all have a bit of the Comic Book Guy in us. :)

    Comic book guy has an actual name. I don't remember what it was, but I remember seeing/reading about it on some trivia thing somewhere.

    I could forgive it if it was something like "Take the Matrix Hot Rod ... after I give it to Ultra Magnus first, and he loses it, and Megatron takes it after being remade as Galvatron, and you run into him inside a giant planet-eating monster neither of us know about yet." :)

    Could be. I dunno. I'm sure I could look it up on some type of Simpson's wiki, but I don't care that much. I just thought some people might find it interesting that they DID give the guy a name.
