Squid overlordsIf I ever amass a huge fortune and go a little nuts and become a superhero, it will be as squidman. Bats may be survivors, but a squid will mess you up:

“Squids can be aggressive, whimsical, suddenly mean, and they are always hungry,” said Herb Waite, co-author and professor of biology at UC Santa Barbara. “You wouldn’t want to be diving next to one. A dozen of them could eat you, or really hurt you a lot.” The creatures are very fast and swim by jet propulsion.

Maybe Pharyngula can hook me up with some squid arms when it comes time.

    Giant Humbolt squids are rumored to be man-eaters. I would pay money to see Alex’s Ross’s take on Squidman. Jim Lee’s would give me the night terrors I think.

    Et tu, Cthulu?
    Besides, being a self-confessed Pastafarian, shouldn’t you become ‘The Noodler’ instead?
