Topic: What Side Kick do you most relate to….

 

Luke gets the conversation started by revealing that he relate to Superman’s pal Jimmy Olsen…. always getting into odd situations and being more of a hindrance than a help to the hero.

 

Oktober feels a great deal of kinship with DynoMutt, the Dog Wonder…a bit stupid and easily distracted, but loyal.

 

After a bit of a discussion as to whether or not Vegeta is a side kick or a rival… we find out that Major Monocle shares a kinship with Krillin (sense a Dragonball theme here). Always around and on paper he’s powerful, until you compare him to everyone else on the show.

 

Nabbit is the true hero behind the hero….Kato from the Green Hornet. Although he also has lots of affinity for Alfred Pennyworth from Batman…old guy, who’s still awesome.

 

The mention of Kato also makes Luke think about the Old Time Radio serials…especially the westerns where the side kick was normally the comic relief.

 

Honorable Mentions: Bob (from Deadpool) and Hulk’s side kick…His State Farm agent.

 

 

Game: The Movie Board

 

By drawing three cards, that have common movie tropes on them, we try to identify a movie that fits all the cards.
