Silly Question

Feel daft asking this, but Did Superfly ever work as heel? Been mostly a wwe man since Mania 7 so not sure if he heeled it up before or afterwards? Cheers
​I wouldn't want anyone to feel daft.  But yes, Snuka absolutely worked as a heel for years before he got famous with the WWF.  He had a pretty famous cage match with Bob Backlund in fact.  ​

Spoiler: Superheroes are Silly

Hey Scott,


I don’t know if you’ve heard the hubbub recently with screen writer David Goyer. For one, he made some disparaging remarks about She-Hulk, stating that she was created basically to give The Hulk someone to bone. Which is crazy on multiple levels (including that she’s his cousin). Secondly, he said he hates the Martian Manunter because the whole concept of him is goofy. Chris Sims wrote about recently, here: http://comicsalliance.com/um-actually-man-of-steel-writer-david-goyers-remarks-on-green-porn-star-she-hulk-and-other-nasty-business/

Anyway, spinning off of the Martian Manhunter business, I was inspired to write about it on my blog. Basically? The superhero genre is and has always been inherently goofy or silly. Even Superman or Batman (he dresses up as a BAT!) are silly if you put too much thought into them. Except that’s part of what makes the superhero genre so great. If you want to see me discuss the matter further, I welcome you and your readers to have a look at what I wrote:


It could create some good discussion, since I know something similar splits wrestling fans, as well. There are plenty of ridiculousness things about wrestling that we accept and many others that we hate or call WrestleCrap. Some wish wrestling was devoid of gimmicks and just focus on the wrestling. Others welcome and embrace the silliness that’s always been a part of the business. The same goes for the superhero genre, I’d say.

Thanks,

Well, it could be argued that John Byrne kind of fetishizes She-Hulk in his run, but that’s a totally different topic.  And Red She Hulk is Betty Ross, so she literally IS someone Hulk can bone.
