BC Mag #1: Waxing Deathmatch

Bleeding Cool Magazine article by James Kuhoric.

“The Hulk would smash Superman.”

“Ashley J Williams would send Jason Voorhees back to momma in pieces.”

“Batman would make Chuck Norris’ beard look like shredded cheese in a fight.”

We’ve all heard it. These random conversations in the comic shop or convention where fans throw their theoretical versus challenges down and lay their very passion for fandom at stake in getting the support of their fellow reader to their side of the argument. It’s a scenario as old as superhero comics themselves. But very rarely do we really get to see the outcome go beyond the “double dog dare” of the peer hazing ritual of the comic shop. And when we do see it in an issue or special, all too often it is a watered down story where no one really wins. In most cases it’s not even in continuity – it’s some “what-if-elseworld-amawhoogis” that really is just there to exploit a character’s popularity or pander to a specific group’s interest.
