Call me HOTGUY!

Master7 told me last night if he could be any superhero, he'd be Hotguy.

"Who?" I asked him. 

Master20's lifelong obsession with all things geeky means I have a better than necessary knowledge of the world of superheroes. And all things Pokemon. 

I don't know which superhero I'd want to be but if I could choose to be a Pokemon I'd be Snorlax - he only wakes up to eat. Although having said that, Master7's superhero choice was sounding a bit of alright.

"Hotguy!" Master7 repeated to me, and my head filled with images of a caped crusader lounging against a bar giving passing women the old nudge nudge wink wink treatment: using his powers of hotness to save them from having nothing to dream about - a bit like the guy in the Old Spice ads. But Master7's next comment pointed me in the right direction. "From The Avengers."

I couldn't remember a Hotguy in The Avengers movie, although Tracey seemed to take a long time to answer my questions whenever Thor was onscreen. 

"You know, Dad, with the bow and arrows."

I mentally ticked off the Avengers - Ironman, Hulk, Captain Underpants....

"Oh!" I said, connecting the dots. "You mean Hawkeye."

I'm really glad we cleared that up.

HOTGUY ? ! ? ! That's awesome. I'm saying that now whenever this question comes up at office parties or family reunions. Ha ha. Thanks!

I know, right! I've already adopted it myself.

About Me

My photo

Bruce Devereaux is one of the nicest people he knows. When not at work he enjoys reading, writing, hiding from his children and not changing nappies.


His career, and if we used the term any more loosely an e might fall out, has included a gardener, a personal lender, a console operator, a stop/go man (not as big a bludge as you might think but great if you’re into sunburn, abuse and varicose veins), a cleaner of banks and pubs and, for a very brief period, a door to door salesman (until the last door he knocked on was answered by a very scary woman with tremendously hairy legs).


Bruce Devereaux currently works as a forty-five-year-old award winning customer service officer (glass statuette available upon request) for the Bank of Queensland and as a very casual employee for Corrective Services. He likes to believe he excels at both but then he has always been prone to exaggeration.


His favourite colour is green, with a picture of Dame Nellie Melba on one side and General Sir John Monash on the other. His favourite flower is self-raising.

 If you see him around town, call his wife immediately - he's probably snuck out and left her alone with all the kids.
