    ...my room...
    I think
    Dave ellifson/ Cliff burton - The Metal Millitia
    I dont think that one works
    oh well..
    figurin me i wouldn't be a superhero. I would be.. a indipendent type guy.. going around helping the world.. while all you silly superheros in tights were fighting each other.
    Id call myself... Particle Man.. or else Universe man:D :D :D :D
    I would go around *carrot top voice on* DIALING DOWN THE CENTER.. C A L L A TT ITS CHEAP FOR THEM AND FREE FOR YOU! *carrot top voice off*
    well.. figuring i went to bed at like 3 last night and its not 10 yet.. jeebbus..

    I'd say Victor Wooten, because he's like a bass ninja. have you seen that picture of him holding himself perpendicular to a lamppost, arms extended? :eek:

    And then maybe Anthony Jackson - cos when i look at him or hear him play i just think he must have some kind of psychic powers. no one can know exactly the right note to play all the time like that!!!

    It depends. What kind of crime would they be fighting - Lex Luthier, the evil lead guitarist, for instance?

    I'd say Victor Wooten and Steve Bailey.
  10. He's be a supervillain :D
  11. No, fIeLdY would be a crappyvillain.

    I think Larry Graham and Victor Wooten. Graham adds the "cool factor." His power is the ability to knock people and cars around with his giant thumb, which grows to 4 feet in diameter when he calls on the power of his alien ancestors on the planet Stone. Victor is more the speed to Graham's power. He comes in and slaps some guy silly at 8000 beats per minute with his "buzz thumb." Kinda darting around here and there like Yoda in his lightsaber fight.

    They have other superhero buddies too. One is named Jeff Berlin. When Graham and Wooten are finished with the bad guys he comes in with his super-soapbox and finishes them off with deadly, razor sharp diatribes.

    Here are some other superheroes:

    Captain Bootsy - aka Bootsy Collins. He shoots lasers out of his high-tech star bass and has rockets on those thick-soled shoes. Awwww YEAH baby!

    Mister Flea - He jumps all around like a monkey smacking people with his bass and then showing them the love.

    aww...this is dumb...sorry.

    Bill "the Buddha" Dickens as "the Buddha". He confuses the emeny with a billion 128th notes. Les Claypool as "the Fisherman". He turns his enemies into jelly with oddball slap riffs then smacks them in the face with sturgeon, all the while calling them "Steve".

    agreed... I think it should be like the fantastic four though. I would ad Marcus Miller and Then steve bailey from some killer fretless action

    No offense JT, but you look more like a super villan with that crazy thing you play.

    Havent there been about 10,000,000 comments about JT taking over the world with that beast?

    :D cool. only instead of "the professor", maybe he should be some similar though somewhat less extreme version of my name (like batman, and then robin). how about "buzz"?

    "holy 4-strings-were-enough-for-jaco, mohawk man!"

    "exactly, buzz. to the conklin-mobile, arm the double-barrelled frazzle-buster!"
