102: Back to the Future
|Back to the Future|
Title text: He's kind of an asshole, when you think about it.
This is kind of a double headed comic. Let me explain.
“Back to the Future” is a 1980's defining movie starring Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd, storybased in the year 1985. In the movie, Fox plays a teenage kid that, because being friends with a mad professor (Lloyd), gets to operate a time machine shaped like a DeLorean DMC-12. He then “drives” to 1955, gets to meet his (then teenage) dad, but gets in trouble because his (future) mom falls in love with him, rather than his (future) dad that is kind of a geek. Luckily, the movie was conceived in Hollywood, so everything ends well with mom and dad falling in love, Fox returning to the future by miracle to realize he is still alive because of this love (muhahaha for sex and pregnancy).
Onward to the comic. Cueball has had a similar experience like Fox. He also met a scientist, drove to meet his dad, and setting things straight while helping his dad to be less of a loser. Megan then reminds him of her dad, being a victim of the 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center in New York, and why he disposed of the DeLorean before she could use it to save her dad from either plummeting or burning to his death.
But here is the double headiness: suppose it is 1985 in this comic, according to the statements used by Cueball. How would Megan know her dad was killed in 2001?add a comment!
