The Secret Lair
So why, if this so called hero is called the Enchanted Dagger, doesn’t he seem to use, oh I don’t know, a dagger maybe? Oh never mind, I’m just being a little silly.
No seriously, We’ve seen him in two images now and he doesn’t have a dagger in either. Furthermore, the lack of a sheeth makes me wonder if he ever plans on carrying said “dagger”.
I definitely wonder about the sheath as well. I mean, he’s got NOTHING on that outfit, making you hope part of the Enchanted part is it magically appearing when he needs it.
In this particular episode, the dagger is taken from him while he’s unconscious (due to a blow to the back of the head, the preferred device of the day).
His other superpower seems to be a freakishly long right arm.
The “Iron Man” direct-to-DVD re-boot disappointed many fans with its controversial re-interpretation of the charecter…”
You’re right, there is nothing on that costume that hints at a sheath or pockets. And yet…maybe the Enchanted Dagger isn’t implying some mystical blade, but rather, a sly bit of innuendo. Granted, if you’re ever in a fight with this mug, you’d be awfully glad if he pulled a knife on you rather than “The Enchanted Dagger”. 🙂
Hi guys! I tweaked my redo of “The Enchanted Dagger” just a tad bit. Here it is:
@Jeff: An enchanted dagger may not need a sheath. It could cling to the boot of the user, or it could appear and disappear at the will of the user.
True Danny, but he better hope it’s the “Appear at will” kind because they didn’t even see fit to give him boots. You’d have hoped some slippers might have been included to go with the whole red longjohns theme, but the poor bastard doesn’t even have THAT.
Nice job on the redo, he’s also much better than the original.
@Jeff: Thanks for the good words about my redo, the original version is not very good.
“We need to iron this out!”
“You look a little steamed!”
“I have a point to press with you!”
“Umm…Your head needs this! (Gee, coming up with these ironing puns is hard.)”
Danny: Good job on the re-redo.
@Myro: Thanks buddy!
“You’re not getting enough iron!”
“And your bathing suit area needs one too!!!!”
Myro your ironing puns(?) where hilariously bad good.
“Isn’t it iron-ic? Don’t you think?”
I’m just glad they could iron out their differences.
Nicholas (14): The point behind my ironing one-liners was that what the Enchanted Dagger actually said (“Your head needs this.”) seems kinda random. So the joke is, as I imagine it, that he ran out of puns, and spit out the first thing that came to mind.
“…the shot comes from behind, and his tie flies out back and to the left…back and to the left…back and to the left…that is one enchanted dagger!” –from Oliver Stone’s film “Yankee”
Don’t you see? The iron IS the enchanted dagger! It can transform into anything!
Well, Jeff, you did say that his pajamas might have a trapdoor butflap. Maybe the dagger rests in his but crack, like how a breast dagger rests in a woman’s cleavage. Atleast that would explain it’s enchantment.
OF COURSE!!! The “Dagger” part of his name was a typo by a horrible intern! It really meant “The Echanted Ironing man”. NOT to be confused with “Iron man” his BORING arch nemisis.
