My friend, Clark Duke stars Vol.3 Nø 4 in which he was subject to the infamous BLAG word game. Clark chose such words as intuition, bronze, lament, scorpio, apricots and amalgam. I'm pretty sure he chose amalgam because I was undergoing some pretty nasty root canal work when I'd seen him last. However, with him being in Kick Ass I wanted to go full Super Hero creation, so I've picked the question using his word, helmut. I think I rose to the challenge just fine. See what you think:
Ok, if I was Battle Girl what would my powers be and my costume… and being style and safety conscious, what would the helmut look like?
“Well you wouldn’t have any powers because I don’t have any powers.”
Yeah, I can! It gives you more depth with your answer. [laughs]
“[Laughs] Maybe your powers would be being able to find parking…”
“I would make your costume really skimpy, just because it would be way more comfortable than mine. You just want to do short shorts and a halter top, so it wouldn’t be so heavy.”
[Laughing] What about the helmut?
“For the mask, just…”
No, the helmut. The safety conscious helmut! [laughs]
“Maybe one of those half-helmuts like you see what bikers wear.”
So basically, just kind of looking like a roller girl.
“You’d look a lot like a roller derby girl. Yeah.” [grins]
But what kind of mask would I wear? I’d want to have some sort of speed on the helmut. Like wings or something, like old-school Thor-style.
“That’d be cool. I mean if you’re going for speed, you might want like a plastic mask, [runs hands down over face] like a welder’s mask.”
