Get this - - Mark Millar’s brother, Dr. Bobby Millar, will dress up as Nemesis and jump out of a plane on the 22 to raise money for disabled kids. Wild, huh? Millar’s, of course, no stranger to provocative fund-raising stunts. You’ll recall that he auctioned off character names for NEMESIS and KICK-ASS, and he’s planning to do something similar for his next comic, SUPERIOR (the Superman riff with Leinil Francis Yu.) Mark’s brother, Bobby, works with special needs children so, in this case, he’s looking to raise forty grand to get his students a new mini-bus. There is, of course, the great irony that an outrageously-evil villain like Nemesis is being used to get more attention for such a noble venture.
Millar evens brings up his own concern with this endeavor…
“…with that white hood and cut out eye-holes (I've seen the suit) he's going to be mistaken for the first Scottish Ku Klux Klansman and get the crap kicked out of him!”
If you’d like to be part of this wild stunt, you can make a donation through PayPal at this addy… https://www.paypal.c...d=BFABE56N5S8PG . As Mark himself says… if one person donates five dollars here and another donates five dollars there, those fivers quickly pile up into a pretty good sum.
Anyway, thanks to Bleeding Cool for the heads up. Bobby’s promising to put a video of his skydive up after he goes for a flight on August 22, which should make for a hell of a viral clip to make the rounds online. Though, I wonder if he should be afraid that he’s going to be ambushed, in mid-air, by Mark in a Superior costume.
