Happy New Year, and Hump Day people!
So it's 2014 already. Damn. Well we here @ The House hope this year will be just as good, if not better than last year. I know I plan on continuing the same level of hilarity and outrageousness skit-wise.
So, as you well know, I've been a huge Dr.Who kick as of late. I was a causual fan before, but know, it's like a full-blown thing. Thus why so many Dr.Who-related posts lately.
And I say, why stop there?
One of my favorite things about the show, is the theme song/music. Idk why, but I love it, and can't get enough of it. It's unique and just fits the show and concept.
Well it got me thinking; There's some other characters the theme music could fit as well.
So here's a list of the Top 5 DC Characters I could see using the theme if they had their own show.
5). Dr. Occult
Yep, this guy. He was the original Kolchak Night Stalker before Kolchak. Created in 1935 by the very same men who created Superman(Jerry Seigel and Joe Shuster) Dr. Occult is a psychic detective who uses magic, which comes in handy when battling the supernatural and things that go bump in the night. He's even got his own companion, in one Rose Psychic(yeah, that's her real name)
So yeah, I could definitely see the theme song fitting here.
4). Adam Strange
Hell yeah Adam Strange! His last name says it all, and his adventures both on Earth and Rann would ideally fit the theme song. It's sci-fi(ish) and so's the theme, so there. Perfect fit.
How has this guy not had his own show or cartoon yet, my god.
3). The Atom
At first I was thinking maybe Green Lantern or Hawkman, but then thought, naww. How about his buddy Ray instead? Imagine the graphics accompanying the opening credits. Various scenes of Ray changing size, zooming across telephone lines and rays of light. Battling in various locations like a carpet and rug, or back in the South American jungle alongside his lady love Laethwyn and her people, the Morlaidhansins.
Sounding good huh?
2). The Doom Patrol
I don't really need to explain why the theme fits with them do I? You use any one of the various variations of the theme ove the years, and they'd all fit to one extent or another the Doom Patrol. Plus the music just fits the general weirdness and bizareness of the team I think.
1). The Phantom Stranger
I'm talking about the original one too, not the NU52'd hunk of ass version Didio drudged up. Nope, the one and only classic Stranger. Plus there are a few definite similarities/parallels between the Stranger and the good Doctor:
-They've both lived a longtime, and could very well be essentially immortal.
-They assist and help out people for various reasons, but generally because they feel a moral obligation to.
-They probably have real names, but either forgot them, willfully fogot them, or just don't care. They simply go by their chosen names rather then anything else.
-Both can travel long distances. The Stranger just randomly appears, while the doctor uses the TARDIS.
I'm sure there a some others, but you get the idea. Some random scene with someone in danger occurs, and then the just as things look super bleek, the Stranger suddenly shows up. Cue music.
So that's my top 5 list. Agree or disagree, let me know what you think.
Hope you guys are having a safe and Happy New Year:)
