Comics We'd Like To See

We here at SUPERMEGADIO!!!!! are well aware of the powerful influence our opinions have on the world simply by being associated with the great one.* With that in mind, we choose to use our power for good and suggest ideas for comics that we'd like to read. So, here's the first.

The Adventures of Rick Jones,
Rick Jones: Sidekick!

Either title would work for us, or even something better. But, the idea's there.

Who is Rick Jones?

He was just a punk kid with dreams of being the next Dio** who strolled onto a gamma bomb testing site. Thanks to the quick reflexes of nerd extraordinaire Bruce Banner, Rick is saved! Bruce becomes the Hulk, though. Rick hangs out with the Hulk for a while. Then he goes on to become sidekick to nearly every marvel hero including Captain America, Rom, two Captain Marvels, and the whole God-Damned Avengers!*** He's a tv host, pretty good musician, maybe coulda played for Elf, and is married to a sometime lesbian hottie! Anyway, when written correctly (ok, when written by Peter David), he was a breezy guy with a seen it all attitude, because, well, he'd seen it all.

What would be the deal then?

It would basically be a team-up book where Rick Jones is in trouble or something, and has adventures throughout the Marvel Universe, with tons of different characters. I don't know, I'm not a writer, but this could work, dammit! Better than that last Captain Marvel series. (I liked it, but this would've been so much better). It was clear, to me, at least, that Peter David wanted to write a Rick Jones series, but there was no way to sell it. But, with each issue (or storyline) featuring a different hero (or villain!), it would sell itself (Ok not really). Anyway, I think it's a good idea!

Please, make this comic!

And just for all you ladies...
Notice where 'Comb-Over's' eyes are focusing

*Dio, you idiot!

**Fat chance!

***Ok, that's pretty much it, but, still, that's a lot!

Civil Dio!!!!!

As promised:

This Post Is A Spoiler!

Hey there, all you SUPERMEGADIO!!!!!ers. This here post is so we can discuss Civil War (from Marvel Comics) away from the prying eyes of those who haven't read it yet. I was gonna post about a comic I want to see, but we here at SUPERMEGADIO!!!!! believe in giving our readers what they want. And our readers want to discuss Civil War! And Dio! And after yesterday's post, we all know how Civil War could've been better, right? If not, check back tomorrow for...Civil DIO!

World War Dio!!!!!

You are free to pick up the broken pieces of your mind!

Annihilation II?

Marvel's doing a sequel to Annihilation which will have a very similar structure as the first:

Annihilation: Conquest Prologue by Abnett & Lanning

Three 4-issue minis + 4 issues of the Nova series by Abnett & Lanning
Star-lord: Giffen (in a dirty dozen/suicide squad in space riff)
Quasar (Phyla): Gage
Wraith: (a new character): Grillo-Marxuach, who wrote Super-Skrull

Then a six issue Annihilation: Conquest mini by Abnett & Lanning.

Tomorrow's Post...Today!

We here at SUPERMEGADIO!!!!! thrive on leaving our readers in a constant sense of anxiety and anticipation awaiting the next big thing! With that in mind, we're going to preview tomorrow's post right here. Tomorrow's post is going to split, not just the internet, but your MINDS in two!!!!!! Here's a hint: What's the one way to make World War Hulk better?

You've been warned!

Dio Lyrics Sunday!

We here at SUPERMEGADIO!!!!! feel the need to impart some of Dio's beautiful lyrics to the masses. You won't, of course, get the full effect without him singing the lyrics himself, but at least you'll get some of the poetry.

The Last In Line

We're a ship without a storm
The cold without the warm
Light inside the darkness that it needs, yeah

We're a laugh without a tear
The hope without the fear
We are coming - home

We're off to the witch
We may never never never come home
But the magic that we'll feel
Is worth a lifetime

We're all born upon the cross
The throw before the toss
You can release yourself
But the only way is down

We don't come alone
We are fire we are stone
We're the hand that writes
Then quickly moves away

We'll know for the first time
If we're evil or divine
We're the last in line
We're the last in line

Two eyes from the east
It's the angel or the beast
And the answer lies between
The good and bad

We search for the truth
We could die upon the tooth
But the thrill of just the chase
Is worth the pain


We're off to the witch
We may never never never come home
But the magic that we'll feel
Is worth a lifetime

We're all born upon the cross
The throw before the toss
You can release yourself
But the only way you go is down

Conservative Talk Radio

Caller: Hilary Clinton talking point #1*.

Host: Bill Clinton talking point #7/2**. 'Rod Ham' talking point #13***. Congress talking point #23****.


I'm not sure who I want to see as president especially considering it's not even November of 2007, but can't these talk radio hosts say anything new? Why do I still have to hear the same dis-information from four and ten years ago? Why am I still hearing how 'awful' it was in the '90's because of the Clintons*****. Things suck now, and the Clintons haven't been in power for SIX years! Face facts, true believers!

* Bitch.
** Liar. Can't Keep it in his pants.
***You hate the Clintons.
****They saw the same pre-Iraq war info as President Bush.
*****Though we can probably blame them for crappy '90's comics. As the economy was so good, people had more money to invest in speculator type activities, which Tom DeFalco and his ilk gladly took advantage of.

World War Hulk! (Updated)

This'll be my first official comic related post. Marvel announced the checklist for the upcoming World War Hulk event and it includes thirty-five issues.* This is one of their 'small' cross-overs. What's interesting are the regular titles that are gonna be included: Ant-Man and Heroes For Hire. Ant-Man'll get to at least issue 10 and HFH issue 14. I'm very shocked that they'll get that high. They're also gonna have a new Front Line mini (but only 6 issues), and would seem to want to do one for every major event. I don't know anyone who enjoyed Front Line though. I thought this pic was pretty cool. Hulk with former Champions Hercules and Angel and recent pal Scorpion (of AIM). I'm assuming that's Namora (not Namorita) in a version of Namor's second costume. Is this group on Hulk's side?

Update: I forgot to say that I generally enjoy both Ant-Man and HFH. Ant-Man is playing fast with the time frame with one part of the story taking place about six months ago, and the other half taking place today. It's pretty good and features a real ass of a character. HFH has been hit or miss, sometimes telling really good stories, with a nice mix of characters, and sometimes it's just a mess (like the newest issue, #7, I think). And with the writers leaving, I don't think I'll have much more interest. Er, right Rod?

Pronunciation Guide

We here at SUPERMEGADIO!!!!! have it in our charter* to embiggen this world with our crummulence. So, with that in mind we offer the following:

Several commonly used words in the English language are often mispronounced with uncommon frequency. The main culprits are words ending in '-ot.' When you see this in most words, it should be pronounced '-iht.' This should most often be done with the word robot, and, of course, it's sub-word Gobot. Despot should also be pronounced this way.

Robot and despot (and to a lesser extent, Gobot) will be commonly used words here at SUPERMEGADIO!!!!!, so be sure to pronounce these words or you will get your reading license revoked!

I Like Comics.

Sorry, I know this isn't news to you, but I felt I needed to say it. I've gone and gotten myself a reputation as a comic's hating fool, and needed to settle the score. Plus, I've had this blog for two days now and there wasn't one post about comics! Dio wouldn't approve!

This is why I hate the internet. My lack of clarity comes through!

It seems that some people believe Steve Winwood (god help us) is a truer rock god than Dio, the man himself. It looks like it's time for a head-to-head challenge!

"I challenge you to a head-to-head challenge, Steve Winwood!"

"Please don't hurt me Mr. Dio, Sir!"

Look at Dio. He's on the attack! He's gonna attack you with his Rock!* Now, look at little Stevie Winwood. Laid back. Do those suspenders look like rock suspenders? Not on your life!

Say their names out loud. Dio. Dio! DIO!!! (don't be afraid to shout!) Can't you feel the majesty and the power? And now, Winwood. Winwood! WINWOOD!!! Even when you shout it, it screams wimp. Dio's name is a name meant to be shouted! Winwood's sounds like a type of orchestral musical instrument. That's no way to rock! Officially: Lame!

Dio: American! Winwood: English. USA! USA! USA!

Steve Winwood's first album with his name on the cover is a solo album, right? Well Dio named his whole damned band Dio! This wasn't no solo album. The band's name was Dio! If you were in Dio, you were in Dio! If you played on Steve Winwood's solo album, that's all you did, you played with Stevie Winwood. You weren't in Winwood, you just played with him.** And just go ahead and try to get your band to name themselves after you.***

These are some highly cogent arguments to the vast superiority of Dio over Winwood, and it's sad that in this day and age that I even had to do this, despite some admittedly strong rhyming skills of Winwuss (heh, heh). But, I'll close my argument with this:


I rest my case.

*I said Rock.

**I know. I know.

***I still say Wayne Bass & the Fishhooks is a great band name!

Get To Know: Rock Gods!

Some would think this should've been the first 'Get To Know' feature, but we here at SUPERMEGADIO!!!!! assumed you all knew the greatness of Dio! Turns out, we were wrong! So, without further ado, the first GTK: Rock Gods!:


Dio Wants You...To Rock!*

Dio rocks. Hard. This is obvious to anyone with rock based neurons. I already mentioned his awesome and unprecedented rhyming abilities. But, I think I'm getting ahead of myself, as I haven't explained who he is exactly.

Dio is the lead singer of four, that's right, FOUR, awesome hard rock bands! Not only that, they are the four greatest bands ever! What are they? In order of awesomeness: Dio (yep, named after the man himself!), Black Sabbath, Rainbow, and Elf**.

And you know those devil horns people are always flashing trying to look badass? Well, Dio invented that! He invented a hand gesture! Noone else can claim that! Every other well-known hand gestures' inventors are lost to the mists of time, but not the Metal Devil Horns! Dio did that.

Dio is also timeless. How do I mean this? Noone knows how old he is, not even Dio himself! My theory is that Dio travels through time fighting dragons and demons and stuff, rocking hard the whole time! Of course his age is unknown! That also explains how his singing is not just as good as it used to be, it's better!

Someone once said that Dio's music is better without the visuals from his videos. This person is clearly delusional and knows nothing about anything! Dio's video's are mini-masterpieces that only highlight his greatness. He uses a fantastic acting style that relies only on body movements which makes sense as there is no dialogue. I call it 'over-emoting!' And Dio over-emotes like only a true rock god can!

So, there you have it, a good summary of Dio's greatness! Never doubt, Dio truly is a rock god without equal!

I've never actually heard any Elf, but with Dio at the helm, it must rock hard!

Get To Know: FOS*

Here's a new feature that we know will become popular here at SUPERMEGADIO!!!!!, the 'Get To Know: FOS.' There will be other 'Get To Know's' as well as other 'Get To Know: FOS's' but this here's the first!** Who shall get the distinction of being the first such mini-bio? Why it's the only person with an official SUPERMEGADIO!!!!! title so far! That's right...

Mad Genius Robn Zebrowski, Who Will One Day Conquer Us All*** And Make Us Wear Blue Eyeshadow

Whose forehead is that? Find out in a future Get To Know: FOS!

I used to think that me and my friend's were smart. No, really! Smart, clever, erudite...the whole bit! Then I met Robn. Man, she's smart! Take a look at her blog. See what I mean? I have no idea what in sam hell she's talking about half the time!

Unfortunately, Robn's also really cool! Way cooler than Josh. Way, way cooler. I can't even begin to explain how out of the cool league Robn is for Josh. But, we'll get to him later. So, she's smart and cool. Rare, right? Well, it get's worse.

She's also plenty geeky! That's right, she loves sci-fi, comics, all that junk. So, let's summarize. She's Smart, cool, and geeky. Right, all you fanboy's are jealous that I have a friend like that!

Robn's also a member of a super secret spy organization (of which I am also a member), but I can't really talk about that. But, we do have cool codenames! Codenames, anyway.

Her and her other half moved to the other side of the country, so she could goto grad school and invent those killer robots to which to conquer us. This was a while back. We should all be conquered by now! Maybe she's not as smart as I thought!

I was gonna end on that, but I thought it was too cheesey of a 'call-back,' or, as I like to refer to it, 'reach-around.' Anyway, there's plenty more I could say about our future despot like how honored I was to be a part of her and Josh's wedding (ahem) or how girly she got while planning for said wedding, but that would just be filler, not killer!

*Friend of SUPERMEGADIO!!!!!

**Collector's Item!

***With robots! (This should be a part of the official title, but I blew it! It's too late! Confoundit!)

When Is Wayne Gonna Get Bored With This?

Already am, pardner!

New Rule!

I don't want anyone pretending to be famous comic book creators here! God forbid one of their fans does a search, finds this site, and then sees their 'favorite artist' telling some story that's completely fabricated! Now that I'm on the side of the man and running this site, I have to agree with Rod.* Sorry, Rod for disagreeing with you in the past! I only hope you can forgive me!

*title forthcoming!

Just In Case, Or, Don't Be A Dick!

I'm gonna give credit where it's due. I didn't really come up with the name of this blog. It was the Mad Genius Robn Zebrowski, Who Will One Day Conquer Us All And Make Us Wear Blue Eyeshadow's* brilliant suggestion over here. Clearly, I will also have to steal this bit from my good friends' blog. Sorry, guys!

Oh, if RJ himself is reading this and doesn't like it,'s really about gods of ancient Japan!

You may also notice that the name of the blog and the url are different. Don't be a dick and steal the name for your url. I know it's really a cool name for a blog, but, c'mon, don't be a dick!

*official SUPERMEGADIO!!!!! title.

Some Content Would Be Nice

Yeah, good luck with that!

Anyway, we've gotten some complaints at SUPERMEGADIO!!!!! that the site is pretty content free. We cannot deny this. So here's my first attempt:

Mp3's: How Should I Name Them?

That's a very good question! All mp3's should just be the title of the song. No track numbers, artists, or any of that other stuff. Plus capitalize the first letter of every word in the title. For example: Dio's classic would be titled "Rainbow In The Dark.mp3" Don't forget, make sure you are legally allowed to own the mp3 in question! We here at SUPERMEGADIO!!!!! support the United States' far reaching and wholly appropriate copyright laws! USA! USA! USA!

Why Separate Posts?

Hey, why you on my tip? I'm new at this!


It's my first day!

What's With All The Exclamation Points?

You can't rock without them!


Well, we all know Dio ROCKS! There's no doubt about that one. He rhymed 'diver' with 'tiger!' How can you not rock with those kinds of skills? But, don't get me wrong this site won't just be about Dio, just mostly.


Welcome to SUPERMEGADIO!!!!! So far so good. So what's this site for? I send out a bunch of boring e-mails to some friends and I figure rather than clog their inboxes, I'll clog the internets. What will I talk about? Well, everything I feel like! I only have one rule here: don't use the word 'meh.' I can't stand it. Use it and fear my wraith!
