Sorry agoraphobia fans: I have been culpably inactive on the writing front. Here’s an inadequate wisp of an entry to tide you over until Season 4 of The Agoraphobic Reviewer hits TV screens in September.
Everyone has a catchphrase these days: nuns, hairdressers, miners. I haven’t decided on a catchphrase yet, but I’ve managed to narrow it down to “Shingles!” and “Thank God it was Roger” (I’ll let you know which I settle on). But back before everyone else got on the catchphrase bandwagon, the only people keeping the noble art of catchphrasing alive were superheroes. Here are some of my favourites (write your own in the comments section):
Superman: “Satan’s horses are strong. But Superman is stronger”.
Red Kryptonite Superman: “Stick it in your ear Lois”
Spiderman: “Back to the Arachno-Pod!”
Fantastic Four: (said in unison) “No-one messes with El Cuatro!”
Batman: “Take heart, young man”
Captain America: “Here come the sanctions”
The Flash: “Hold on to my magical hamstrings, children”
