Arrow is now in its second season, with a Flash show in the works on The CW, SHEILD started this week on ABC, a Commissioner Gordon show was just sold Tuesday to Fox.  The superhero show seems to be the newest hot genera show on broadcast TV right now.  Networks are scrambling for them asfast as writers can think them up.  And you know what that means?  More Cosplay options and more people interested in nerd subculture.

There has been such a boom in Black Canary and Green Arrow Cosplayers since Arrow came on the air.  And that is great.  They aren’t even on the show that way but it’s getting people into reading the comic books, and nothing could be better than that.

Part of me wants to reject this flood of nerdiness in mainstream popculture.  I want it all to be special and mine, but if other people like it then it does get to stay around,  and I need to remember that that is better.  I really want to be an inclusive nerd and not an exclusive snob.

So I am going to do my best to take the attitude of “YAY, more fun” and not “aw man, somebody else is playing with my toy”.

Has anyone notices that Agent Fitz on Marvel’s Agents of SHEILD is dressed an awful lot like the new Q from Skyfall?

And these two a mashup of the scientists from Pacific Rim.

I like the look, but Q’s sweater and Fitz’s Sweater are awfully similar.  This whole tie and jeans things really reminds me of my college professors.  I hope this is a trend that lasts, well dressed nerdy men on TV and in the movies.  It’s nice to see instead of the poorly dressed nerdy men like in The Big Bang Theory.
