Name: Mike Romo

Bio: Originally from San Francisco, Mike Romo now finds himself in Los Angeles, after spending a few years in New York acting in Off-Off (Off?) Broadway shows and learning what terms like "wind chill" and "85% humidity" meant. In addition to acting in commercials and film, Mike works in technology as a product manager (and is the host of his own corporate talk show--long story), focusing on Internet security. Though he grew up reading comics, Mike did not start reading them regularly until 2002 and has not looked back since, and has a complex relationship with the many long boxes taking over his closets. If pressed to talk about his favorite stories and creators, he would hem and haw a bit and then start throwing out names like Darwyn Cooke, Grant Morrisson, Paul Pope, Gabriel and Fabio Moon, Matt Kindt, Ed Brubaker and mention titles like Criminal, Richard Stark's Parker, 100%, All-Star Superman, Super Spy and quickly ask what you like. While he admits to being a big fan of characters like Superman, Daredevil, Batman Spider-Man and The Flash, he's more than eager to talk about non superhero books and finds himself picking more independent books than ever. A regular writer for iFanboy, he's been known to show up in a few of the podcasts and video shows as well. When not auditioning for TV and Film or writing for iFanboy, Mike works at SixFoot, a brand advisory in Marina Del Rey.

May 8, 2012 4:20 pm I think that if the X-Men movies had the team in yellow and purple, it would be really distracting and look silly. As it is, for me, I would have preferred to have had Cap were the uniform he wore in his film--I thought his current costume was just too bright. But yeah--my fear was that I thought it was going to look silly and it was not silly at all...
May 8, 2012 4:00 pm Great comments everyone--had to share Harry Knowle's review of the film--it's the total opposite of what I wrote, which is kinda funny: http://www.aintitcool.com/node/55399 (he wants a new Avengers every 2 years..!)
April 10, 2012 3:40 pm Really appreciated this comment --- "You'll believe a man can be good"--so right.
April 10, 2012 3:37 pm Haha--well, I mean, that's what he said, and he said it in a warm, joking way--but he meant it and, like Conor said, lots and lots of people really do feel that way...
April 10, 2012 3:36 pm Really nice nuance, there--I totally agree. It's so easy to be snarky and pessimistic...and Superman really flies in the face of that...
March 28, 2012 1:42 am Didn't we just have an arc where everyone in new york just had spider powers? every time I think about going back to Spider-Man, Marvel goes out of its way to ensure it doesn't happen.
March 10, 2012 6:09 pm To lose McQuarrie and Moebius in subsequent weeks is just breath-takingly sad.
February 27, 2012 3:22 pm Daft Punk as a pair of space cops fighting evil with sonic based assault weapons, flying through space in their pyramid-class star cruiser?
January 30, 2012 2:15 pm Haha--you guys are far too kind. Thanks for the support! I wasn't sure if I would make the cut or not...fun spot, totally fun morning, we rode that coaster like 12 times... Thanks for all the encouragement, everyone!
January 24, 2012 12:14 am I have been flying up and down and all around for the past week and I had not been able to get a chance to read these comments—I flabbergasted, this article has generated more conversation than anything else I've written over these many years. Thanks so much for reading, I will read what you've said and try to keep your thoughts and ideas in mind as we watch what Marvel does in 2012.
