In our silly lil game, we sometimes see things pop in that we have no clue as to their Origin. They seem familiar, but we just can’t pinpoint from where. So that is why we decided to make a fun lil reminder out of it. To let you know just Where did THAT Come From?
By Hawking’s chair and wowza! The 2016 TSTO SciFi Event has just begun and already there’s so much to wow a fuzzball. Stephen Hawking, black holes, multidimensional visitors, and lots of sciencey futuristic stuff to figure out where to put in our games. I’m loving this like a nerd in a space rock candy store but I know a lot of this new stuff might have you wondering just where the heck it all comes from. Well no fears inter-quantum dimensional guys and gals, that’s where this walking carpet earns his bread and butter (seriously, that’s all I’m paid in lol). For this dimension of origin stories, we’ll be looking at Evil Homer.
I suppose when you’re looking for interdimensional travelers for a SciFi Event, it makes sense to look for doppelgangers of our favorite characters. Homer started off this whole mess so no surprise that one of them is an evil version of him. Technically, we got five different doppelgangers. I sort of wish they’d gone full nerd and enlisted the United Federation of Homer Through History.
The ones we got, with one exception, were all skins Homer from TSTO history. The one outlier is a skin that should look familiar to Simpsons fans familiar with the Guy Incognito episode “Fear of Flying” (S6:E11).
I’m just stoked something I mentioned in a speculation post appeared (again). Maybe we now know that Guy’s appearance was actually caused by some sort of rift in the space-time continuum. I wish I could completely say that but I also have to point out a little scene from “Behind the Laughter” (S11:E22). Homer quits the show, spreads his creative wings, and returns to his “first love, the legitamate theater.” He performs in Rent II: Condo Fever! as Mr. Stingely.
He literally chewed the scenery lol.
This does look a bit more like Evil Homer becasue of the cape and since this episode is non-canon, it could explain how this character crossed dimensions. Maybe the two intermixed like in one of those Kree genetic technology happenings but now I’m geeking out too much. It could always just be original and influenced by other things. I’d be remiss if i didn’t point out how Evil Homer looks like Snidely Whiplash and/or every caricature of a bad guy in a top hat and monocle. I played one once in an elementary school play lol.
Of course, there will always be only one Evil Homer for this fuzzball. You may remember this daydream from “Whacking Day” (S4:E20).
You know you heard the “I am Evil Homer” song in your head. So there you go. My thoughts on the origins of the Evil Homer doppelganger. What do you think? Guy Incognito or Mr. Stingely or both? I’m hoping all of the doppelgangers find homes in our towns. Not holding my breath though. Sound off in the comments, smell ya later.
TTFN… Wookiee out!
