The Honorable Mitchell Hundred Answers YOUR Questions!
Howdy, Sleepwalkers! We have a very special guest on the blog today–Brian K. Vaughan and Tony Harris’ very own creation, the Mayor of New York and the world’s only superhero, Mitchell Hundred, AKA the Great Machine! Even though he’s very busy, His Honor has agreed to answer a few reader-submitted questions (which will, of course, remain anonymous). Now I’m going to step back and give Mitchell Hundred the floor. On to the reader questions!
1) Hey Mr. Hundred, my name is [[REDACTED]]. How–
Whoah, sorry. My bad, Mr. Mayor. Two quick questions. You see, I’m leaving soon to go on a fishing trip with my father. He’s retired now, and he gets bored very easily. How does your father deal with retirement?
Oh God, I’m so sorry. I didn’t mean–wow, I feel really bad now. I’m just going to go on to the next question, if that’s okay. So, if you and your fa–if you and a friend were on a fishing trip together, would you do catch and release, or would you kill the fish?
2) Mr. Mayor–what type of fruit spread do you prefer on your English muffins: jelly, preserves, marmalade, chutney, or jam?
Yeah, jam. Wikipedia says it “contains both fruit juice and pieces of the fruit’s (or vegetable’s) flesh,although some cookbooks define jam as cooked and gelled fruit (or vegetable) purees.” So what do you like?
3) Mr. Mayor, listen very carefully. I work for a group of very important people, people you do not want to anger. Rest assured Mr. Mayor. You have angered them.
I assure you, Mr. Mayor, this is not a laughing matter. My associates south of the border assure me–
I wouldn’t concern myself with that, Mr. Mayor. We have been watching you for some time, and we are almost prepared to move against you. I am only telling you this as a warning, so that you may take action to correct your current behavior. If you maintain this path, your destruction is inevitable.
I see you will not listen to reason. Let me put it to you this way. I have another man with me, a man who–
Uh…I, uh…I’m not sure you understand what’s going on here. Do you think–wow, now you’ve caught me off guard. Let me start over. My colleagues and I are aware of your extra-official activities. If you do not want them brought to light, you will do what we say. Is that clear?
Now you understand, Mr. Mayor. We know you think your powers give you some sort of privilege, but rest assured, you are no different from the rest of us.
…We’ll be in touch, Mr. Mayor.
That’s all the time we have for today, Sleepwalkers. Sorry about the short post, but I’m about to go on vacation, so I figured something kind of anemic was better than nothing at all. Expect reruns next week, and I’ll see you after. Stay safe out there!
