Fake Flashpoint Teasers

Inspired by last week’s one-line Flashpoint teasers, @Speedstersite started posting jokes marked #FakeFLASHPOINTTeaser on Twitter. Others joined in.

Here are some of my favorites:

  • SpeedsterSite: Turns out, hard water is just ice, nothing more.
  • SpeedsterSite: He absolutely refused to see Zorro that night
  • collecteditions: No one escaped the Manhunters.
  • collecteditions: He never much liked fish; she never much liked Curry.
  • collecteditions: The Graysons never worked without a net.
  • ryanoneil: Jor-El wasn’t actually a rocket scientist.
  • DougG_ATL: Hippolyta is a terrible sculptor
  • DougG_ATL: Superboy Prime, try this Xanax.
  • TheLastIslander: Bart Allen is secretly the time trapper. (More of a fake spoiler than a fake teaser, but at this point, who hasn’t been the Time Trapper?)
  • BlueTyson This story is actually good! (Ouch!)
  • JCorduroy Greedo shot first. (So that explains it!)

My own humble contributions:

  • He never lost his eye.
  • He would’ve gotten away with it, if it weren’t for those darn kids.
  • They caught the radioactive spider before it could bite anyone.
  • Nephew? What nephew?

You can find the rest on Twitter at the #FakeFLASHPOINTTeaser tag.

But Twitter isn’t the only place people were doing this. Over at the CBR forums, posters were making their own banners in the same spirit.

Quick Thoughts: Weekly Twitter for 2009-12-20

  • Walking to lunch. The Bat-Ice Cream Truck just drove by again.
  • Saturday at Comic-Con is already at 70% capacity. I’m starting to believe the show will sell out by New Year’s. (Tuesday)
  • So, Connor’s back with the Teen Titans. Can Bart be far behind?
  • Busy…going to have to pick up new comics tomorrow. I’d save them until next week, but one of them is The Unknown.
  • Last month I ran a FB poll on whether DC should postpone BN:Flash until Rebirth wraps. It was 50/50. The results might be different now
  • Really? Blackest Night is beating Scott Pilgrim in the Limited Series/OGN poll? Why are they the same category, anyway?
  • Saturday at Comic-Con sold out last night. Plenty of tickets left for the rest of the weekend, though. (Friday morning)
  • I think I’ll just try to relax & take in this ocean view, & catch up on Flash news later. (You go away for one Xmas party…)

Quick Thoughts: Weekly Twitter for 2009-12-06

  • Somehow I don’t think this guy is taking the Renaissance Faire entirely seriously.
  • Odd: I saw the typo “Batman: Unsenn” and my brain decided it was a misspelling of Unsinn, German for Nonsense, rather than Unseen.
  • Wow, these sales figures for DC are depressing.
  • FlashForward continues to take 2 steps forward, 1 step back. Ah, well. Better than the other way around.
  • Blackest Night: Flash – @GeoffJohns0 says: “Zombie gorillas are hard to beat, but next issue has something even better.”
  • Remember that Muppets Bohemian Rhapsody video? They’re official at @MuppetsStudio #FollowFriday
  • Ack! Just saw someone use “pre-Crisis” to refer to pre-INFINITE Crisis! I need a lawn ASAP so I can start yelling at kids to stay off it!
  • Archive binges were a lot easier when webcomics hadn’t been around so long…
  • FlashForward TV schedule explained.

Quick Thoughts: Weekly Twitter for 2009-11-22 (Flash: Rebirth #5 Week)

Flash: Rebirth

  • Now that we know for sure Flash: Rebirth will arrive Wednesday, people are searching for Flash: Rebirth #6. (Still Dec. 23.) (Monday)
  • The more I think about it, I’m not sure Wally’s new costume will appear tomorrow. In the middle of a battle? Doesn’t seem like a priority. (Tuesday)
  • That said, both the classic Kid Flash costume and first appearance of the Speed Force costume were roughly instantaneous, so who knows?
  • Sometimes, living in the westernmost timezone in the continental US is annoying. My local comic store isn’t even open yet. (Wednesday)
  • Could be worse. I could be in Alaska or Hawaii. (Not that I’d mind *being* in Hawaii.) Or some other country that has to wait for imports.
  • OK. Comic store opens at 11, and I’m taking lunch early. I should probably grab a snack for mid-afternoon.
  • Yes, Flash: Rebirth #5 is really out! Also bought: Farscape, Dr. Horrible.
  • Another week ends without new delays. Flash: Rebirth #6 is still listed for Dec. 23 on DC’s website. (Friday)

Movies and TV

  • Listening to Dark City soundtrack while scanning a roll of old photos. Just picked up a photo of the sign for Shell Beach.
  • New Global Frequency adaptation? Could be cool. The nifty phones (outpaced by the iPhone) were never the point anyway.
  • The real question is, can they still get Michelle Forbes to play Miranda Zero?
  • Watching Red Sonja. Why is there Kryptonite in this movie?
  • Hey look, it’s not-Conan! But I think they filmed a scene for Conan the Destroyer in the same spot.

Also, check out the Star Wars Band Names meme from Saturday.

Quick Thoughts: Weekly Twitter for 2009-11-15

  • Even though I haven’t been bowled over by Flash: Rebirth so far, $13.59 for the hardcover is tempting.
  • Bought this week: Unwritten, Farscape: D’Argo’s Trial. I’m down to 7 regular books per month now, so 2-book weeks are common.
  • First thought on Dollhouse cancellation: after only 4 episodes? Then remembered this is Fox. That’s practically generous.
  • Are there any Blackest Night-related stories titled “Raise the Red Lantern?”
  • If you get email claiming to be a fix for Conficker from Microsoft, DON’T INSTALL IT. They do NOT send patches by email.
  • A week with no delays on Flash: Rebirth! #5 is still lined up for Wednesday, and #6 still says Dec. 23.
