About @DCFRANKENSTEIN

Postby KING King Impulse » Fri Mar 01, 2013 5:22 pm

So, I've recently returned to the board after a while away, and obviously a few things have changed. One thing I've noticed is that there's a Frankenstein twitter parody account affiliated with the site. Why does it speak like The Hulk? I know there are already loads of Hulk parody accounts on Twitter, and there's no need for another one, but DC's Frankenstein is known for being overly flowery with language if anything. I've often described him as only ever speaking in Jack Kirby cover blurbs.

I know it's a minor, super nerdy nitpick, but it just doesn't make sense to me.

This statement comes from someone who allegedly just launched a podcast about entertainment media?

The joke is that, once the character lost his series at DC, he had to sell his brain for rent money.

Also, Jude wanted to make a bunch of Phil Hartman Frankenstein jokes.

Cool, Jude PM'd me to explain it and it makes sense. I wasn't having a go, I was just curious.

The world always needs more Phil Hartman.

I don't really see what you're getting at?

How did I allegedly launch a podcast? When you say it like that, it sounds like your doubting the existence of it?

Here's the answer from the articles "about the author" section:

About the Author - Frankenstein, Former Agent of S.H.A.D.E.

Frankenstein is the swordwielding monsterfighting monster formerly employed by S.H.A.D.E., a global agency dedicated to fighting weird stuff. Unfortunately, Dan Didio laid off Frankenstein due to low sales, and Frank quickly lost the bulk of his intelligence trying to piece together DC continuity while updating his resume. Luckily, the Outhouse's staff is largely made up of dumb beasts, and Frank is now working as an contributing reporter while he is between jobs.

Rumor has it that Frank could be making much better money using another significant organ of his :groucho:

Oh, shit, guys! Call the humor stuff off, one guy doesn't like it! ;)

I'm just messing with you, but the response we've gotten has been positive for the most part, so it's here to stay. Sorry. :)

Why not Ask FRANK?

Someone else did.
