  •  "Fanboy" is the correct term. (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:
    Ian Reifowitz

    An impulsive 'live by the sword, die by the sword' loyalist to a particular piece of popular fiction.

    I know the fanboys, because I am one.  

    Couple differences between myself and Ryan, however:

    1.)  I am not nor do I have any desire, to be President of the United States.

    2.)  I know how to keep that shit in check.  I may take some inspiration from the Justice League to inform my foreign policy beliefs, but I recognize the limits of fiction vs. reality.  Plus I'm not about to make Darwyn Cooke's 'New Frontier' required reading for co-workers.

    3.)  What am I a fan of?  Batman, Superman, Yoda, Captain America.  Characters who strive to do for others what they can't do for themselves.  Selfless, compassionate, and committed to serving mankind.  Who's Ryan a fan of?  John Galt, an egotistical prick convinced profit and self-interest are the only things anyone should be concerned with.
