Or is that, double double, toil and trouble….?

3. Michelle - July 24, 2010

Ahaha! I’m really enjoying this comic

4. CmdrR - July 24, 2010

I think I like him better with the beard.

5. Victor Hugo - July 24, 2010

heeh too much evilness together!

6. Losira - July 24, 2010

All that lovable evil in tw precious packages! Keep it coming! I’m loving this.

7. Capt. of the USS Anduril - July 24, 2010

#4 It gives him character.

8. Roger - July 24, 2010

It’s “Le Cutest of Beagle” that really ties it all together.

9. Yanni - July 25, 2010

It’s good and I like it, but I find it sad that the creator of the comic has to rely on inserting certain sexual themes into the story in order to get his/her laughs, a formula far too many sitcoms feel they have to follow.

@Yanni: It’s sort of inherent to the modern Mary Sue trope, much to many fan’s chagrin.

11. Yanni - July 25, 2010

Yes, I’m afraid that’s true…

I’m just worried to learn how Sue will handle it if she ever learns about Nero, because I don’t think she can out-Mary-Sue him. I mean, he’s got the whole “I’m like Khan, but ON A BIGGER SCALE” aspect of Mary-Sue-Ness, plus he’s got the “Oh, and I killed your DAD! Oh … and I ALSO killed YOUR Mom!” Mary-Sue-Ness … he’s more of a Mary Sue villain than Mirror Sue, really :)

You know what? You’re right.

Now I feel sorry for poor poor rich little Bob.O … :) LOL

But you’re right! Nero is Bobo’s Mary Sue.

I fear for Trek 12…

Yanni, and others,

It’s exhausting coming up with a new story every day, being consistent, and being funny.

Ask Tina Fey….

Lots of comics writers have a short half life. Dont judge

Yeah…. no. If Nero were a Villain Sue, the story would have been sympathetic to him. The heroes, upon learning the causes behind his quest for disproportionate revenge, would either have declared that his genocidal madness was completely justified or just generally have been made to look like even bigger asshats in comparison (difficult, but a Sue-thor will do it, no matter how ridiculous it is.) Also, sharing a few things in common with an iconic villain from earlier in the canon does not a Villain Sue make, nor does having affected the lead hero personally in the past. Nero cuts a pretty effective swath of destruction across Klingon and UFP space, but he does have to present a challenge to the heroes. If that makes him a Villain Sue, it makes the Borg collective one as well, just from the battle at Wolf 359.

Anyway, this comic continues to be hilariously and terrifyingly dead-on. It’s pretty apt, since the name “Mary Sue” originally came from a parody of the same type of fanfic.

Quite.

“Also, sharing a few things in common with an iconic villain from earlier in the canon does not a Villain Sue make”

I agree, but you’re responding to a claim no one has made.

“nor does having affected the lead hero personally in the past.”

I agree, but you’re responding to a claim no one has made.

Pardon my misinterpretations. I do find that the Mary Sue label tends to get tossed around more than it ought to on the series of tubes.

18. S. John Ross - July 26, 2010

Fair enough, but “more than it ought to” for what purpose? It’s not like it’s serving some kind of sacred or even practical function :)

19. Woulfe - July 27, 2010

The Series Of Tubes ? Ye canna be serious can ye ?

What, your from the 1950′s like the guy from Alaska I believe it was who coined the phrase “a series of tubes” who for some reason beyond all logic & proof there otherwise thinks that the Internet is a bunch on pneumatic tubes like they had in the 1950′s that sent messages all over your office building, not all over the planet like the Internet does with data.

The Internet may be many things, but a series of tubes it is not, wires, YES, tubes, NO, not in this lifetime, or even before, it’s always been wires, in the FUTURE it’ll possibly wireless, but it’ll never be tubes, never has been tubes, well, unless you count Vacuum Tubes from old Mainframe computers from way back when as being tubes that transmit data.

Those Vacuum Tubes from old mainframes been long gone nowadays.

It’s a joke.

It’s just that it’s an insult that gets applied unfairly sometimes.
