We begin this episode with Bart and Milhouse mocking Comic Book Guy, causing him to go to his backroom to get away from them. Bart and Milhouse then find a comic book created by CBG called "Everyman" who's main power is to grab a comic book and take the powers of whatever the superhero of that comic has (The identity of "Avery Mann" is about as subtle as Peter Parker changing his name to "Arachnid web-slinger"). The comic itself isn't really worth mentioning, but after CBG gets praise for it, he decides to start selling "Everyman" comics and they become a hit
|Before "Kick-Ass" infested our minds we had "Everyman"|
|I don't know, I wouldn't want this guy doing my plumbing much less save me from evil|
|Yeah, you guys have room to talk, where's THE apology for "G.I. D'oh" and "Lisa the Drama Queen"?|
|Say I'm starting to see the inspiration for season 20|
Final Judgment: This episode wasn't strong but it laid the foundation for an adequate season. If only the rest of the season could have been this way. I'm not a Seth Rogen fan, but honestly his lines were not funny at all; they ranged from stupid to dull with no traces of funny to be found. Any hopes were dashed away with next week's episode, prompting a full-fit rage.
Final Grade: 5.3/10 nothing special but it's not bad either.
