HoboDarkseid and TimeLostBatman are the latest examples of fan-fiction transmedia hijacking brand name properties from the corporate establishment. Each of these Twitter accounts takes on the personality of a comic book character and adds their own wacky dialogue to the twitterverse. DC would never have Batman philosophizing with Aristotle or kicking ass in Sodom and Gamora, but now fans can live out this and other geeky fantasies. Will Desperate Housewife Snow White and Tipsy Popeye make a comeback as Twitter personalities?! It’s only a matter of time and imagination.
