#SDCC: Starro enslaves entire convention hall
This just in! Starro, the hive-minded starfish-shaped ne’er-do-well of DC fame has decided to take over the Earth (again). Unlike previous attempts that alerted the JLA all too quickly, Starro this time methodically hatched his spores all over the 2010 San Diego Comic Con.
Shown here, the first nerdy victim, was obtained for the 50 year old conqueror near the Mattel booth. Mattel, who released the DCU Starro action playset (with Kevin Conroy voice activated narration!) at the con, was asked for comment.
“We here at Mattel wanted to celebrate the glory of Starro the Conqueror. His majestic tentacles enrobe our simple brain matter, and unites us with the singular mind that makes everything seem ok again. And it totally makes us forget about that silly Star Conqueror villain who took thirteen issues to lose to the son of Brainiac in R.E.B.E.L.S.”
It didn’t take long for the 100,000+ fans in attendance to submit their weak minds, and pie filled bodies to the intergalactic leader. The first stop after the con floor? Any panel where Mark Waid is in attendance. That mind has been giving us Starro’s followers many problems these days…. yes….
