Will Eisner's groundbreaking comic 'The Spirit' is arrived on the big screen in the form of a new movie directed by Eisner's protege, Frank Miller. Starring Gabriel Macht, Samuel L.

Yo this is the same contest you guys had for tha pop up book only now it's more prizes.  Sweet.  I'll try again with my same entry.

If the world believed I was dead I would move to an Europen country.  Maybe Italy.  Once there I would assume my new identity BJ Dangler.

Under this new name I would join the straight porn genre industry and I would become KING! of the 1 minute porn movie.  So I can't be identified in my movies by the world that is believing I am dead I would wear a Mexican wrestling mask like Rey Misterio and instead of saying "Im on my way" I would say "Dangle on son!" which would be the ending to all of my movies. 

See all my movies are sequels so "Dangle on son!" would let my viewers know there is another 1 minute movie coming soon.  All my films would have Hollywood movie titles even though they wouldn't resemble the same plot.

For example:  A Fistful of Dangler, I Am Dangler, The Dark Dangler, Dangler: War Zone, The Curious Case of BJ Dangler, CasaDangler, Quantum of Dangler, Mamma Mia.

This is the same....? What would I do? Nuthin I'd still have couch potato skills. A better question would be" Which Spirit babe would be your Spirit Babe?" For me it's Plaster of Paris Paz Vega.

"Tell us what YOU would do if the world believed you were dead. How would you restart your new life? Would you serve the greater good? Would you find some other purpose? Would you have a cool code-name like THE SPIRIT?"

This would be in my 60's when I retire but on paper I died of heart failure.  I would look for the worst neighborhoods and clean them up for crime.  I would hope the papers give me a cool name like the Punisher, but I would not kill just knock them out and leave them for the police.  I would learn to use bolas to knock them down.  Maybe be called Bola Master!

They'd call me Street Logic.  With my already formidable training in martial arts and military background I used their street philosphies against as I laid the smack down.  They'd always be givinen the choice o clean up their acts.  If they did not then I'd be back to visit them again.  I'd be adorned in a sleek black outfit with a matte finish.  Soft soled boots and leather sap gloves.  My weapons of choice wold be twin impact batons and my hands feet.  I'd wear a trench coat made of Dragon Skin armor.  If the bad boys pushed the issue, I'd be forced to use my coustomized .44 auto magnum.  It shoots high impact ruber and plastic rounds, along with the standard fair of lethal munitions. Including wille pete rounds, explosive round and hollow points to name a few.  The lethal stuff would only be used when lethal force is necessary.

{copy & paste; it didn't work for me last time, but...} i would be The Vagabond: Walking the land, taking on a new identity with each stop, righting wrongs where i can then moving on (as plaintive music plays in the background or in my head).... Think Kwai Chan Kane missing the martial arts training. Think David Banner minus the MENSA level intellect or gamma irradiated alter-ego. Think Jerod (The Pretender) sans the high I.Q. and the chameleon-like personality. Think B.J. without The Bear (the semi and the Landers sisters). Moving on....

I'd become an entity called Freedom's Ghost and I'd hunt down big greedy corporations and strike fear into their hearts until they agree to work for the betterment of mankind. With a new sense of bravery, I'd also dig deep into the darkness of the city's to fight racial injustices, gang violence, while running the greatest game/ comic book/ hobby/ coffee shop ever as I become a pop icon of the year, as featured on Time magazine.

AndrewJ 12/27/2008 1:50:22 AM

I would be The Decensorisor, walking unseen into the vaults of greedy and excessively PC media conglomerates, retrieving the precious original media (be it movies, cartoons etc.) and giving them a healthy restoring scrub before releasing them to the world at large to save them from being lost to future generations... Hang on, James Baskett and Mammy Two Shoes, here I come! :)

Most of the cool names are taken so I'll have to think about that one for a while. I do know that I would go somewhere else and maybe try to stop corruption, poverty and war.

off2europe 12/29/2008 9:21:25 AM

If the world thought THE TRAVELLER WHISPERER.  I would travel around the world using different methods (boat, plane, car) aand find someone in trouble and use my whispering techniques to save them.  I know, pretty cheezy, but I have dreamed this in the past.

Wesman 12/29/2008 5:02:32 PM

Well...I saw the movie, and unfortunately Eva Mendez bottom half was the better part of Franks interpretation of Eisners vision.

I also saw the Pop up book- very nice, highly recommended (wait for a sale)

Call me the Wanderer! I would simply set out-on foot and travel the great United States and Canada. Then work my way through Mexico to South America. Living day to day, working odd jobs and volunteering where needed. It would be awesome to be independent of a structured lifestyle!
 

Thanks for the contests!
