  1. 1. Are you a gamer? Unfortunately I’m not.
    2. If you could assume the identity of any one superhero who would it be and why? No brainer: Grifter! It would be like living into an action movie 24/7.
    3. What is your all-time favourite comic-based movie and comic-based TV show? The Dark Knight Rises and the ’90s Batman cartoon.
    4. If you could change one event in history, what would it be? The assassination of JFK and his brother Bobby. Both of them were great men that would have made the world a much better place than it is now, if they had lived longer.
    5. If you could hire any actor to portray you in a movie, who would it be? Robin Williams.
    6. Who was the best Doctor of all the actors that played him on Doctor Who? Unfortunately I can’t answer, because I don’t watch the show.
    7. If you could have dinner with any person throughout time who would it be and what would your #1 question be for them? Bobby Kennedy. And I would ask him to tell me some anecdotes about himself, something that I could never find in a history book.
    8. DC or Marvel? Until 2011 I’ve always been a Marvel guy… but then DC’s reboot came, and things changed upside down. Now most of my pull list consists of DC releases.
    9. What was the first movie you ever saw at a movie theatre? The Lion King.
    10. What was your favourite Christmas gift you ever received? http://marvel.wikia.com/Spider-Man_Holiday_Special_Vol_1_1995.
