All I have to say is...


That's all I'm sayin'.

I think that would have been my final 3, too, looking over the whole cast. I thought they were the most interesting, although I think Defuser and Hygena would have rounded out my top 5. Looking at all of them as overall heroes, Hyperstrike would have gotten my vote no matter what - he had the look, the heart, the mindset, and looked good on the green screen.

See, I think a lot of the complaints you have are influenced by Hyperstrike being young and hot. In his 1-on-1 with Stan at the end he really didn't shine any more than anyone else and kind of disappointed me. Defuser and Hygena both had way better personal motivations than he did. The show isn't about actually looking like a hero, it's about the heart of one. In that respect I do think that all three of them were good, depending on what Stan wanted. Sure, I'd have enjoyed the cute guy winning, but at the same time I see why it was The Defuser. And I don't really mind, in the end.

Actually I don't think Hyperstrike is all that cute - IMHO, he fit the role of superhero better than Hygena (who I thought was too wimpy, overall) and Defuser (who I thought was too pushy, overall). Sure, they all had great backstories (interestingly, Hyperstrike didn't cry like the other two, but I thought his speech on the block was absolutely spot on perfect for why he should win), but when I looked at them overall, I just really felt it should have been Hyperstrike.

I also note he definitely looked the best on film - that circus training obviously prepared him for the spotlight, and I think watching the movie (which of course will be infamously bad) would have been a hell of a lot more interesting with him rather than the dark-haired Dolph Lundgren known as Defuser. Bleh.

I will say that I'm glad Feedback won season 1 - he was, IMHO, the most heartfelt and sincere lover of comics in the bunch. :)

Watching the show play out, I was glad that all three made it to the final round. Stan said it's about the heart of a hero, but it's also about being able to market a movie and comic book. I found Defuser rather boring. And I disagree about HyperStrike's back story - it seemed rather Peter Parker to me.

I suspect Stan was won over by the video footage of what a comic geek Defuser can be in real life. Last year's winner Feedback had the same advantage (mind you, I think he did deserve to win).

And really, Defuser looked worse than Fat Momma against the greenscreen. Even Hygena looked better.
