It’s only mid-January but the excitement and anticipation for Comic-Con 2013 is already building. Tights are being cleaned, claws sharpened, tickets purchased, and super-hearts broken. That’s right, humans aren’t the only ones who can get left out of this high-profile, exclusive event.
“We may be immune to a lot of things,” offered Micro Man quite candidly. “But not feelings. People don’t really get that. If they would simply stoop down with a high-powered microscope and ask sometime, I’d be glad to tell them. But does that ever happen?”
Because we were not too familiar with Microcosmic Man and felt that he deserved a chance to tell his side of things, we sat down with the miniature marvel (though it took a while to find him).
“What’s my super power? I basically morph (or, change, for you laymen) into an exact replica of whatever I’m around, only on a microcosmic scale. Though definitely super-amazing, it’s not without its challenges. You may not be able to see but right now I’m half-chair, half-microphone.”
Apparently, Microcosmic Man has been shunned by the comic world because of what they describe as an “extreme and fatal ineffectiveness, either for good or evil.”
When we asked him about this, about the nickname, and about what he might be able to do to reverse this super-stigma, he became defensive, though rightfully so.
“Moot Man my ass. They just don’t realize what I’ve accomplished. But I’m humble, you know. Does that count for anything these days? Ha! I guess if I was a self-involved megalomaniac like Iron Boy they’d love me. If they only knew! Remember when Magneto got that little cold a while ago and it turned into super-pneumonia? Yeah, that was me. He was out of the evil business for a whole week!”
