i thought "Supes" and "Bats" in reference to superman and batman was bad enough, but now on another forum, i've seen palpatine referred to as "Palps".
what is the origin of the shortened nick names? is this some kind of comic book lingo/shorthand or something? am i the only one who finds this really annoying? just wondering.
the term "Supes" or "Bats" seems like some really lame marketing attempt to make superman/batman relevant to generation "Y" or whichever letter we're on now.
what's next, "Spides"???
