That guys impression of Don Draper/John Hamm is spot on.

Same actor was Paul Newman in The Flood (S6E5). Neat.

(Although for a second I was positive he was Topher Grace, all growed up.)

Someone should edit this into Season 6.

my only complaint is that Peggy would never wear that outfit to a pitch and Don's tie to loud.

A for effort, B- for execution. You can't just dress people up in costumes and have them say lines from different media properties. They tried to tie it together at the end but too little too late. Also, SPoILERZzz Zomgg!

Still, that voice was impressive.

Why is Professor X an old bald dude in 1960-whatever? The one guy's Don Draper is good, but I couldn't figure that scene out... I mean, lots of people saw X-Men First Class and weren't wondering why James McAvoy had hair and could walk. Why cast an old bald dude for Xavier in this? And why was Wolverine in this at all? I laughed a few times, but mostly at the guy doing Draper.

1) Time travel or something.
2) Because Wolverine is in everything.

Also if he wanted to be little people, he would have be some sort of cross between Ant-Man and Multiple Man.

Came here to say the same thing. It's uncanny.

A for effort, B- for execution.

And a million A+++++++ for stuffing John Hamm into another actor's body.

Was there anyone whose power was to split into tinier versions of himself? It seems like an obvious thing to do but I can't think of anyone.

I enjoyed the brief nod to The Adjustment Bureau at the start there.

Jamie Madrox could split into multiple copies of himself whenever he absorbed kinetic energy, which is sort of close.

Came in with very low expectations, left quite impressed. I don't think it's amazing-- the concept's shoe-horned, but the telekinesis and toaster scenes were dead-on in terms of dialogue and delivery.

If I were a bigger fan of either property I might not have liked it as much, but I thought it was worth the time investment.

I still have no desire to eat Quiznos, however.

The self copies (but not smallening) is a common power. Naruto has it. A lot of pokemon have it. There are spells for it in DnD.

And yeah, Wolverine is in almost everything. Only copyright laws can keep him out of places he doesn't belong. Like Avengers movies.

The actress that plays the blue mutant (yes, I know I know nearly nothing of the X-Men) looks familiar. Do I know her from something?

Itchy in a Fantasia parody, Bender in a Futurama episode. But really, Firestorm's enemy Multiplex was supposed to do just this. Not that I've ever read a story where it happened - Firestorm villains are kind of terrible and less important in the DC universe than, say, Man-Bat.

Not tinier but there was Jamie Madrox, the Multiple Man who could grind out duplicate versions of himself.

Also, there's a Gail Simone-written Justice League storyline with a plague of microscopic Starro duplicates, which is notable for setting up the line, "My god, he's full of Starro!"

He missed the Draper pinky lift, though.

Great, now for the rest of the day i'm going to be fantasizing about a x-men/avengers type Dr Seuss universe movie series that's all dark and gritty and stuff.

You know, with whimsical explosions.
posted by emptythought at 4:53 PM on May 18


Yeah, but the original Cat in the Hat still existed - he was just able to create multiple smaller versions of himself at the same time. He wasn't actually splitting.
posted by Chrysostom at 8:48 PM on May 18


He didn't create multiple smaller versions. They all lived under one anothers' hats. They were there the whole time, even Little Cat Z (who is too small to see).

"Multiman" (aka Hubert "Geese" Ausbie) from Harlem Globetrotters Cartoon could clone himself. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Super_Globetrotters#Characters
