Let's start a new game. I'm sure we all have a bunch of these (well, at least I do), but let's keep them to one per post to see how far this thread will go. I'll start.

I may be a major league Star Trek geek, but I have never worn an ST costume or gone to an ST convention.


Who's next?

    I may be a Buffy/Angel geek, but I have never actually seen every single episode of either show.



    Didn't find that out until my wife agreed to watch both series with me, and I got to enjoy some new episodes I never knew existed.

    I may be a science fiction geek, but I've never watched Star Trek (I know, I know...).

    I love the Marvel movies but I haven't read any comic book either. It's not that I don't want to, but that there are just way too many of them and I just don't have the money to buy them all lol. And I wouldn't even know where to start either...

    I wouldn't know where to start either! If I want to know more about a character's backstory, I Google them :)

    Oh that bites. It's on amazon, if you have Prime, at least the first part. Netflix is slow sometimes, I was catching up on Supernatual and they put Season 8 5 days ago. Had to have a few marathons to catch up before last night, lol.

    I'm a comic collector and I don't blame you. I recommend just enjoying the movies and IF you want to buy a comic book, buy a limited series that's directly tied to the movies, preferably on-sale in digital format (e.g. Comixology) for enhance features.

    One thing that Marvel does is have multiple, numbered universes in their 'multiverse'. The 'mainstream' universe (most of their books) is '616', but the "Ultimate" universe, the Disney cartoons, and the Avengers-related universes are completely separate entities.

    Even with the Marvel movies, the Avengers-related (Marvel still owns the rights) and other movie properties (Spiderman, X-Men/Wolverine, Fantastic Four, etc.) are also separate because Marvel sold those movie rights to other companies (Fox, etc). That's why you won't see any movie crossovers anytime in the near future.

    Wikipedia does an excellent job of providing character backgrounds considering they are a 3rd-party site. I'm a collector and I still go there to fill-in some blanks.
