The winner of the best comment out of the 240+ comments on “Which Comic Book Character Is The Greatest Maker Of All Time?” is Martin Hohenberg. Martin, email me pt @ this site to get your prize! SUPERMAN – THE BLACK RING. Here’s what Martin had to say (He thinks Gearloose should have been in the list and also the winner, it’s hard to disagree with this)…
- Gearloose is not a duck – the beak form is more chicken-like.
- He’s shown to actually engineer stuff – other than, for example, Batman, who for the most part only tells others that he had invented the gizmo of the day.
- Like most of us, Gearloose is basically a pacifist, not an aggressive war-mongering super-rich guy who seems to have to prove himself. Gearloose’s engineering is to build cool stuff, not to beat someone up.
- Gearloose was – for many of us – the original idea-giver of becoming makers, much more do than e.g. Luthor or Stark.
Not only should Gearloose be in the list, he should’ve won.
Please take a moment to read all the wonderful comments, a fantastic discussion. And if you’re a parent of friend of a maker, the comics mentioned would make great gifts to inspire and spark, er stark, the imagination of that special person! And don’t forget, the conversation is still rocking. Add your thought!
