Mark Millar's Brother is his Real Life Nemesis... for Charity

Posted by No_name_here (1247 posts) - - Show Bio

 The new face of charity.

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.

It is full crap. His brother would better have a Superman suit.

Seems more like Millar is getting a member of his own family to blowjob one of his characters, now. I mean, who is Nemesis? Does anyone outside of comics care? He'dve been better off skydiving as Superman or Batman or whatever. Dressing up as some nobody character isn't going to get that much attention to your cause, noble as it is.

There is no such thing as bad publicity

I think skydiving with a cape is a bad idea.

This is an awesome idea on many levels.  Have to say I am now impressed.  While I am a bit irked with Millar for a few questionable comments of his, this is indeed a wonderful publicity stunt.  
Having previously worked in the same field as Millar's brother, I know how difficult it is to get the funds for plenty of things.   I hope the plan works and pray people help him out with his cause.

I don't know.  I assume they've worked the details out here, but I'm thinking that a) a parachute will be strapped on his back, over the cape, which is going to hold the cape down, or b) the parachute will be strapped to his back, but under the cape, which could 1) tangle around his body during the freefall, and 2) keep the chute from deploying correctly.  So it's either going to look bad or end bad.  I repeat: I think it's a bad idea.

@cbishop: But he'd look badass with his cape flying up until he tried to parachute.
