George Takei Wants to Be Spider-Man

where does he get those wonderful toys


Well, I mean, who wouldn’t want to be Spider-Man?

I said Spider-Man, not Peter Parker. Nobody wants to be Peter Parker. But George Takei (in a bid to raise publicity for his actual 2012 Broadway debut) is throwing his mask into the ring and letting the current organizers of Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark know that he’s totally up for the job. And that Spider-Man would be way more effective if he had a phaser.

And that he’s fully insured.

Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
