It’s another Friday in GGA Land and I’m so very happy to ask my dear friend and GGA’s resident Marvel expert 5 Questions about the things that are important to me, food and superheroes.
Knowing about all things Marvel isn’t Matt’s only talent. He’s a writer, improvisor, Groundling’s Sunday Company alum, pretty much a know-it-all about anything in the geeky and sci-fi worlds and the host of The Popcorn Talk Network’s, Marvel Movie News.
Let’s get right into it!
1. What is your favorite food?
Favorite genre of food would be Mexican food. I am down to eat that any time of the day. The runner up would be Indian. Pretty much, if it’s got spice in it, I’ll shove it in my mouth.
2. If you could live anywhere, where would it be? (any galaxy or planet fictional or otherwise)
Hogwarts. In a heart beat. Anything is possible. I mean, sure, they’re giving children infinite sharp pointy death tools every fucking day, “here’s a new way to kill maim or psychologically scar your enemies. Let’s try it on your best friend first.” But, those talking pictures, apparating, the port keys, the light show that is their universe, that’s just awesome. I want to just hover to class, learn how to transfigure myself into a monkey then take off to the Quidditch field and dodge some bludgers before heading down to Hogsmeade with my fake I.D. to get some firewhiskey.
Runner up: Marvel. Also super easy. I would role up to the Sanctum Sanctorum and be all, “teach me.” Just having superheroes zipping around you all the time would be amazing. Though, it’d be terrifying to have the world constantly under threat from super-villains, outer space monsters and extra-dimensional demons.
If you’re talking supporting characters, I have a soft spot for Oracle, Alfred and Commissioner Gordon. And Doctor Strange’s manservant Wong — he’s a total bad ass.
Oh, and Uatu the Watcher who lives in the Blue Area of the Moon.
4. If you could make your own LEGO set, what would it be?
It would have been Ghostbusters, but they’ve already got that going. I would follow that up with Doctor Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum, but someone made that too (though LEGO has not made it officially). Dinosaucers?
Or maybe Great Figures in the History of Science. Or if you could make your own beer-making kit out of LEGO, that’d be pretty sweet.
Oh, know what would be awesome? The Holy Bible — that could be cool, right? You could have Moses on Mt. Sinai, Noah’s Ark with all the little animals, Solomon’s Temple, King David watching Bathsheba bathe, Jesus teaching the Beatitudes, Jesus on the Cross, Jesus the Resurrected Son… so much to play with!
5. Marry, F*** or Kill? Jean Grey, Black Widow, Squirrel Girl
Marry: Squirrel Girl. I pretty much already AM marrying squirrel girl, so it’s a bit of an unfair question.
Fuck: Easy. Jean Grey. She can get in to your head, give you whatever visions you want, or she wants, and don’t even get me started on what she could do with her telekinesis.
Kill: Black Widow. She can’t be trusted. I’d never know where her allegiance lied, so I’d axe her.
