The Gauntlet is Thrown

First, I'd like to thank everyone who responded so well to yesterday's blog entry. It was fun to write, and more than a little disturbing to realize I could produce that.

Second, for those of you who kept asking "Who the hell is Chuck Palahniuk?" He's the guy who wrote Fight Club before it was turned into a movie.

Third, given yesterday's success I got to thinking about other "What if X was written by Y" entries, and came up with some fun ones:
  • Wonder Woman, as written by Camille Paglia
  • Punisher, as written by Ernest Hemingway Not written by Hemingway, but 2 Punisher entries already
  • Superman, as written by Friedrich Nietzsche
  • Dr. Strange, as written by Hunter S. Thompson
  • John Constantine, as written by Edgar Allen Poe
  • Iron Man, as written by Tom Clancy
  • Dream, as written by James Joyce
  • Spider-Man, as written by Woody Allen
Of course, to do any of these well would require some significant research.

Thus I am issuing a challenge to comic book fans, blog writers, and anyone else who wishes to rise to the challenge and pick up the gauntlet: Pick one of these, or another of your own creation, and write something. Post it on your blog if you have one. If not, send it to me and I'll post it here, properly crediting you.

Bring your "A" game, bitches.
