Individuals who claim to be huge fans of comic book lore, but in reality know very little about the characters and their respective abilities, backgrounds, stories, etc. They are commonly known to brag about their comic book "knowledge" (usually acquired solely from films and/or TV shows), and are quick to condescend to those who question their familiarity of the subject. Their habits include attending midnight premieres of comic book movies and wearing superhero T-shirts out in public to display their active involvement in "geek culture".

Redskulls sitting a row back: "Uh...pretty sure that's Red Skull bro."
