The before of Storm Large and Magni Asgeirsson

Storm Large attempts an amibitious live Dead Can Dance cover in her pre-Rock Star life. It works. Magni trying out for Eurovision? Not so much.

I shall appoint you my executive officer in charge of radishes Update: Magni with hair.

I never quite heard about the backstory for Storm Large but I'm assuming her parents are first-rank comic book geeks as her given name + middle name = Susan Storm.

I am ashamed of myself... how did I not notice that? Excellent, excellent catch.

I am also guessing Storm herself is not a giant comic book geek, as what fan could resist calling themselves "Susan Storm" if handed such a moniker by fate and her parents?

If your parents had given you a name like "Bruce Wayne [Flea-surname]" tell me there wouldn't be enormous temptation to drop the family surname and be known as simply Bruce Wayne?

Somewhat relatedly, I once knew a good fellow whose name was Kent Clark earning him the nickname "Mansuper"

That is by far the best thing I have read all week.
