Hi, I'm a Marvel...and I'm a DC
Other names ItsJustSomeRandomGuy Known for "Hi, I'm a Marvel...and I'm a DC" Influenced by Marvel Comics, DC Comics Website ItsJustSomeRandomGuy channel
ItsJustSomeRandomGuy is the alias of Michael Agrusso, an American voice acting teacher, writer, and performer working and living in Los Angeles, California. He currently hosts the channel of the same name with Brinna Li. The channel is the source of the YouTube video parody series "Hi, I'm a Marvel...and I'm a DC", which spoofs the Macintosh "Hi, I'm a Mac...and I'm a PC" Get a Mac television commercials.
In late February/early March 2007, Agrusso read the Internet news that the films based on the DC Comics characters The Flash and Wonder Woman both lost their directors due to creative differences with Warner Brothers on the same day. In contrast, comic book films based on Marvel Comics had several future projects in production. He later saw a "Get a Mac" commercial, which gave him the idea to make a parody using Marvel and DC.
Agrusso first wrote the scripts for four videos, using two characters, Spider-Man (Marvel) and Superman (DC), as their companies' representatives. He and Li filmed action figures in real time against a white sheet using the iSight camera on Agrusso's Mac notebook. They filmed the first video in an hour, and did the editing and voice work in another hour. On March 6, 2007, he created the ItsJustSomeRandomGuy channel on YouTube, and posted the first video. After posting the first four videos throughout March 2007, Agrusso posted six more videos in the subsequent months, also introducing other Marvel and DC characters, as well as original characters Lance (the bartender), Lars (a.k.a. Lance 2.0) and an unnamed referee.
Fearing the "Hi, I'm a Marvel" format would get old and repetitive, Agrusso and Li introduced a Heroes' Bar setting for their characters in their sixth and eighth Marvel vs. DC videos. They later abandoned the "Hi, I'm a Marvel" format altogether and started a new video series: After Hours. The first three After Hours episodes allowed Agrusso to expand his cast with characters from other comic book movie adaptations. The ending of After Hours #3 revealed a plot and set up the rest of the 7-part series as a complex and serious storyline in which Lex Luthor attempts to prevent Stan Lee from creating the Marvel Universe. Each subsequent episode became longer in playing time. The last two of After Hours had to be cut up into two parts and posted separately. The saga also explored new settings, most notably the wood-themed Villains Hangout.
Between After Hours #4 and #5, Agrusso informed fans that he was attending Comic Con 2007. There, representatives from Marvel.com approached him and Li and interviewed them. Afterwards, on August 14, Marvel.com posted the videotaped interview on their website. Concurrently, Agent M, an official Marvel.com blogger, also interviewed Agrusso and posted the channel's first video along with the interview transcript onto his blog. Since then, Agent_M has posted six other videos from Agrusso's channel. Also, in the interim period between After Hours #5 and #6, Agrusso created a new spin-off for the Green Goblin character. Titled Goblin Bloggin', it parodies Internet bloggers, as the Green Goblin rants about his life and relationships, and responds to emails. Agrusso set up a real hotmail account specifically for fans to write emails to the fake blog: firstname.lastname@example.org. He posted Goblin Bloggin' #2 between After Hours #6 and #7 on October 7, 2007, and Goblin Bloggin' #3 between Happy Hour #1 and #2 on July 6, 2008.
On December 2, 2007, the channel posted a holiday-themed video that strayed from the humorous tone of their videos with a theme of giving and receiving gifts. Based on Clement Clark Moore's poem, "'Twas the Night Before Christmas," Agrusso originally wrote it as a Christmas present to Li in December 2006. The video was featured on YouTube's main page for weeks.
More than two months after the last After Hours episode, which hinted at a second season with the Joker, Agrusso posted a promo video on January 27, 2008 for Happy Hour, the channel's second video series with a storyline. The promo has nothing to do with the real Happy Hour storyline. Three months later, on April 19, 2008, Happy Hour #1 debuted at the 2008 New York Comic Con and was posted on the channel hours later. Then the series would go on a five-month hiatus, as the summer of 2008 began. A month after the Happy Hour promo was released, Agrusso released news on the channel on February 19, 2008, that he was hired by the New York Comic Con to make promotional videos for their event in April 2008. However, he could not post them unless he got the rights from Marvel and DC. Two days later, he posted his first of three Marvel-centric promotional videos, indicating that Marvel supported and permitted him to post his videos with their characters. He posted the other two videos during the next two months before the event. On April 11, 2008, a week before the convention, Agrusso released more news that NYCC scheduled a live panel for him to premiere his first episode Happy Hour and talk with fans. The panel on April 19, 2008, called "ItsJustSomeRandomPanel", began with an opening montage, which compiled clips from his videos. (This video was posted on the channel later that night.) Agrusso officially started with a confession that he forgot to buy a second airline ticket for Li. Instead, he showed a video of her greeting to the fans, in which Li explains her important role in making the videos and guilt-tripped Agrusso in the process. This, too, was posted on the channel that night. Agrusso continued the presentation with the DC-centric promo videos he made for the convention. At the request of DC, he was not allowed to post them on the channel, and for the most part, the Internet public has not seen them. He then described Happy Hour as a series with actual sets, special effects and bigger storylines, but retaining the same humor. Then he showed the two-part Happy Hour #1. He later posted these videos as well, posting an unprecedented total 4 videos in one night.
Following the videos, there was a short Q&A session. The following is a summary of what Agrusso said:
- Agrusso made no money from the videos because that "opens up a legal can of worms".
- He did get paid for doing the promos for NYCC.
- He was open to doing ads for action figure companies and going outside the Marvel and DC lines
- As to whether he's been asked to write any comic books, he would not comment.
- All of his videos are done on his Mac computer.
- He does all the male characters' voices himself.
- He uses a ThorBuster Iron Man because "it was the best-looking Iron Man figure at the used toy store I shop at." He did not know it was Thorbuster armor. He told fans to wait for an upgraded Iron Man, once the movie-based figures are on sale.
- Happy Hour is the future of his video production efforts, again citing his fear of a revisited "Hi, I'm a Marvel" format getting stale.
- His Green Goblin video blog, "Goblin Bloggin'" will also continue.
- As to how the videos are made, Agrusso used a movie analogy: "I'd be like a writer/director" (and voice actor). Li does everything else: cinematography, props, and costumes; deserving more credit than fans might realize.
- Batman and Spider-Man make a great, unlikely comic duo: his Spider-Man is geeky, while Batman is everything Spidey hopes to be: "cool, rich and driving cars." Green Goblin and Lex Luthor have a similar dynamic.
- As for ItsJustSomeRandomGuy leaving YouTube to start his own site: "I'd love to do the same thing with banner ads and get paid for this." However, it exposes him to legal issues if he makes a profit.
In the summer of 2008, five superhero movie blockbusters opened: Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Hancock, Hellboy II: The Golden Army, and The Dark Knight. In response, Agrusso created a second "Hi, I'm a Marvel" series, this time with Iron Man (Marvel), the Hulk (Marvel), Batman (DC) and Hellboy (Dark Horse) instead of Spider-Man and Superman. The series spanned across the duration of the summer as the new superhero movies opened.
On October 3, 2008, over five months since the debut of Happy Hour #1, Agrusso posted Happy Hour #2. The reason for the time gap was that Agrusso and Li went back to the "Hi, I'm a Marvel" format during the 2008 summer movie season, making seven videos in that time. On November 5, 2008, Agrusso posted Happy Hour #3. On January 15, 2009, Agrusso posted Happy Hour #4. In the video information section, he posted this message: "To Be Concluded at the New York Comic Con on February 7 at 4:00 on ItsJustSomeRandomGuy's Panel! Premiering online afterwards!" On February 8, 2009, Happy Hour #5 debuted at the 2009 New York Comic Con and was posted on the channel hours later. This concluded the Happy Hour storyline.
Agrusso was again hired by the New York Comic Con to make promotional videos for their event in February 2009. On December 18, 2008, December 31, 2008, January 13, 2009, January 21, 2009, and January 28, 2009, he posted five more Marvel-centric promotional videos, the second of which parodies the MasterCard "priceless" television commercials. In addition to the promotional videos, NYCC again scheduled a panel for Agrusso and Li, this time to premiere the season finale of Happy Hour, more new videos, and hold a Q&A session.
In February 2009, Agrusso and Li took several intentional steps to connect with fans of ItsJustSomeRandomGuy. They created a Twitter account so that fans could be more easily updated about their activities, they collaborated with another parody video maker, The Fine Brothers, by voicing Batman in their Lost parody series, and on February 24, 2009, they hosted a live Q&A session on blogTV to answer questions from fans who could not be at New York Comic Con 2009. On February 24, 2009, immediately after their live Q&A session via blogTV, Agrusso and Li recorded a 10-minute video on blogTV, allowing for anyone who missed the session to view a sampling of it. As of March 28, 2009, the video has been viewed over 11,830 times. On February 26, 2009, Agrusso submitted a request to YouTube that ItsJustSomeRandomGuy be a YouTube partner channel, and it was promptly accepted. As a partner, Agrusso and Li now receive a share in revenue for advertisements seen during their videos, and they also have partner privileges, such as the automatic play of a video, the ability to post more than three playlists on their channel, and the distribution of their videos to "the largest worldwide online video community" via YouTube and its syndication partners. On March 26, 2009, Agrusso posted a short video announcing that he and Li would begin broadcasting weekly live chat sessions on blogTV, every Tuesday night starting on March 31, 2009.
2009 saw the opening of Watchmen and X-Men Origins: Wolverine. In response, Agrusso started a third "Hi, I'm a Marvel" series with Wolverine, Sabretooth, Deadpool, Cyclops, and Gambit representing Marvel and Rorschach, Doctor Manhattan, The Comedian and Nite Owl representing DC. The first video was posted on March 4, 2009, the second was posted on March 13, 2009, and the third was posted on March 23, 2009. Also in 2009, Agrusso began spoofing the major summer blockbusters with his the Marvel/DC characters since no comic book movies from Marvel and DC were being released.
In 2010, Marvel released Iron Man 2 and DC released Jonah Hex. Argusso created a fourth "Hi, I'm a Marvel" series to concide with the film's releases. He uses Iron Man to represent Marvel and Jonah Hex to represent DC. The first video released on May 5, 2010 and the second released on May 24, 2010. The video that premiered on May 24 was ItsJustSomeRandomGuy's 100th upload.
The characters within these parodies are mostly based on characters from DC or Marvel Comics.
- Superman - shown to feel that he is being forgotten due to the amount of new superheroes all over the place. All of the mutants especially Wolverine have hateful feelings about him because apparently he stole their director (Brian Singer) and to have to be contended for the "Rush Hour guy" (Brett Ratner)
- Batman - acts like he doesn't care about anyone except for Spider-Man who he considers an "acquaintance" and is constantly confused as to why everyone finds him "Cool". Instead of saying "I'm a DC." he says "I'm Batman". Seems to be the smartest of all the heroes as Professor X telepathically communicates with him to help him beat Magneto in chess.
- Green Lantern (Hal Jordan) - has been shown more often. Deadpool shows resentment toward him since they're both played by Ryan Reynolds. His film has to compete with three Marvel movies in the 2011 summer: Thor, X-Men: First Class, and Captain America: The First Avenger.
- Wonder Woman - Mother figure to the DC heroes and comforts them by assuring them they will eventaully get a movie and it won't just be Superman and Batman.
- Jonah Hex - upset because of how his movie sucked and Megan Fox playing a prostitute didn't help. Iron Man offered him a spiked milkshake where he dreamed the trailer with the characters replaced with those of Toy Story 3.
- Rorschach - Tough talker. Frequently annoyed by Deadpool.
- The Comedian - annoyed that people mock his little part in his film.
- Dr. Manhattan - believes in peace and harmony and doesn't understand why people laugh at him because he has no clothes on.
- Nite Owl - annoyed that the tough, mean heroes are the ones that get all the credit.
- Spider-Man - Looks up to Batman. Some characters point out that he is no longer married and has no memory of it as referenced by his storyline One More Day. Always given spiked milkshakes so he could create dreams of parody trailers of the year's upcoming movie. Blames himself for losing the Transformers and G.I. Joe comics franchise from MARVEL with no apparent reason.
- Wolverine - Snarky and ill-tempered. Believes Superman is against mutants because he stole his director.
- Iron Man - Mostly portrays an alcoholic personality. Often shows jealousy towards other comic character, particularly Batman and Spider-Man. Admitted to have slept with a LMD with a female design and is insulted by both heroes and villains on contracting sexually transmitted diseases which he denies.
- Hulk - Likes to remember the "old times" of his TV series. Security guard at the hero's bar.
- Deadpool - Often makes jokes and breaks the fourth wall, very much like his comic book counter part - he even knows his true nature as an action figure. Has resentment towards Green Lantern since they are both portrayed by Ryan Reynolds. Often paired with Rorschach, who often gets annoyed and then shoots him. Hates his portrayal in X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
- Cyclops - Determined not to be another "goody-two-shoes" hero that is either forgotten about and usually killed off in the films.
- The Fantastic Four - Not usually shown, but, Thing sometimes appears in part-time jobs (e.g. Security guard)
- Nick Fury - Often shows resentment and jealousy towards Ultimate Nick Fury, who appears in feature films and is played by Samuel L. Jackson, while he just got a TV movie where David Hasselhoff plays him.
- Lex Luthor - The owner of the villain's bar, likes monologues and isn't trusted by any of the other villains. He has a tendency to create new grammars that doesn't make sense. He installed cameras all over the Heroes' and Villain bar to spy on everyone, commented to have bought Google Earth.
- The Joker - Mistreats Harley and plans to make Batman's life a misery.
- Harley Quinn - Completely loyal to the Joker, even though he mistreats her, but, starts to develop feelings for Green Goblin.
- Poison Ivy - Annoyed that most girls in comics are portrayed as being completely gaga over the guys, but, is herself desperately in love with Sandman.
- Green Goblin - Has a crush on/on-and-off relationship with Harley Quinn. Hosts Goblin Bloggin and has a devotion to Willem Dafoe . Mostly shown to have an idiotic personality. He is loud and sarcastic, and enjoys alcoholic beverages.
- Magneto - Sometimes is allowed into the hero's bar and plays chess with Professor Xavier.
- Dr. Doom - Mistrusts Lex Luthor
- Sabretooth - Hangs out at the villain's bar a lot
- Venom - Constantly mocked about his small part in Spider-Man 3
- Juggernaut - drinks a lot at the villain's bar
- Pyro - hangs out at the villain's bar

He then added a video to the "Favorites" section on the channel, which promotes the aforementioned event. Although the video was posted by the ONTPGA YouTube channel on August 27, 2008, the video is clearly Agrusso's and Li's work, as it is in the same format as his other videos (live-action figurines voiced by Agrusso). While he does not use any Marvel or DC action figures, there is a cameo appearance by Agrusso's original character, Lance M. Donovan.
Reception and popularity
As of July 6, 2011, 158,516 YouTube users were subscribed to the channel and its videos had been viewed over 67 million times.; the channel's first video has been viewed over 3.8 million times. An official press release by New York Comic Con via Comic Book Resources called Agrusso "a genuine Internet superstar." In July 2008, q4music.com ranked one of the channel's videos as one of the top ten YouTube videos of the month.
Several online magazines such as Wonderland Stream magazine, Comic Book Resources, Newsarama, Comic Mix, and SpoutBlog have posted interviews with Agrusso, the channel's creator. Several others have reviewed, researched, and written articles about the channel, giving it even wider exposure. In fact, the channel has become so popular that Joe Leo, a columnist for the Apple's advertising strategic partner, PowerBook Central, took note and wrote an article in his column about it.
Although Agrusso does not work for Marvel, Marvel.com has a featured blog that shows the videos and posts their interviews with him. In March 2008, Marvel gave him the rights to use their characters in promotional videos for New York Comic Con 2008. The channel re-invents the personalities of several comic book characters, including the Green Goblin. On October 1, 2008, Iron Man director Jon Favreau mentioned ItsJustSomeRandomGuy's work in a Los Angeles Times live chat: "I LOVE the Marvel/DC YouTube bits on Iron Man and Dark Knight. Awesome. The Marvel guys love them too."
Since the channel's first video in March 2007, several other successful Marvel/DC video series have been created, as well as promotional videos for a major comic book convention, which also gave Agrusso his own discussion panel to talk about the channel. Several external websites have posted its videos on their own webpages.

Green Goblin, Deadpool, Lex Luthor December 28, 2010 Back in the future, Lex explains that Stan's Place existed in all realities via a unique energy source that he hoped to harness and created Lance as an inside man. His initial plan was to lure the heroes away by having Lance claim to work for Darkseid, but the difficulty of harnessing the energy and the knowledge of Darkseid believing himself to be real dropped the plan from Plan A to Plan Q. He then explains that the time travel technology he salvaged was limited to a time loop and bringing the heroes to the future was the only way to avoid being mistaken or creating a paradox. With mutants attacking again, Luthor sends Deadpool and the Green Goblin with Lance's head and emergency handlinks back to the past to find a way to prevent the disaster from happening.

- Videos that parody the trailers of upcoming movies, featuring Marvel and DC characters. Most of them are a drugged Spider-Man's dreams, which seem to entertain the heroes with an exception for Batman.
Episode Title Starring Premiere 1-01 (01) "Marvel and DC Keep on Trekkin' (Marvel/DC/Star Trek Parody)" Nearly all DC and Marvel characters from previous videos May 19, 2009 After the release of Star Trek in theaters, both Marvel and DC characters, realizing that there are no more comic book movies this year, try to perform their own version of Star Trek. 1-02 (02) "Marvel/ DC/ Terminator Salvation Parody" Wolverine, Watchmen, Deadpool and Spider-Man May 26, 2009 Wolverine and Rorschach worry about the future of comic book films in the face of competition from other summer blockbusters like Terminator Salvation, Transformers 2, and the new Star Trek. Deadpool is their only hope, but X-Men Origins: Wolverine may have ruined him. It is later revealed to be the dream of Spider-Man after drinking drugged milkshake. 1-03 (03) "Marvel/ DC/ Drag Me to Hell, Up, and The Hangover Parodies" Gambit, Wonder Woman, Venom, Iron Monger, Green Goblin, Sabretooth, Rorschach, Deadpool, Steel, Hulk and Batman June 09, 2009 Spider-Man dreams three parodies: Gambit, Venom, Iron Monger, and Wonder Woman are the stars of the movie Drag Me Off-Screen, parodying their small parts in their respective films (mentioning the script for Wonder Woman being tossed aside even before the film was made). Parodying a scene from Up, Rorschach isn't interested in any of Deadpool's offers for help. Deadpool, Sabretooth and the Green Goblin suffer from amnesia caused by a massive hangover. 1-04 (04) "Marvel and DC talk Transformers (Marvel/ DC/ Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen Parody)" Spider-Man, Superman, Batman, Hulk, Iron Man, Wonder Woman and Deadpool June 25, 2009 After a long day of watching Spider-Man parody summer movies like The Proposal, Batman suggests that the heroes call it a day. But as Hulk points out, they haven't gotten to the latest movie: Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. But then, Spider-Man gets a nightmare about people praising Marvel's supposed success with Transformers 2, which leads him to wake up and go on a rant about how Marvel had lost the rights to the franchise about 20 years before (and that he apparently blames himself for it). After Spider-Man is carried away by Batman while quoting Revenge of The Fallen lines, Hulk calls in an understudy. And knocks out Iron Man, who begins to parody Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs. 1-05 (05) "Marvel/DC/Harry Potter Parody" Spider-Man, Hulk, Magneto, Deadpool, Batgirl, Green Goblin, Antman, Nick Fury, Venom, Professor X, Batman and Alfred July 15, 2009 The movie parodies continue with a parody of the Harry Potter series starring Spider-Man as Harry, Deadpool as Ron, Batgirl as Hermione, etc. Batman is confused about it, because he took Spider-Man home. It turns out that Hulk called in another understudy, who is British. He later starts a parody of Bruno, as Hulk states that Alred is fluent in German. 1-06 (06) "Inglorious Marvel/DC Parody" Deadpool, Wolverine, Nick Fury, Marv, Spawn, The Punisher, Rorschach, The Comedian, Skrulls, Spider-Man, Iron Man and Batman August 21, 2009 The parodies are back as Spider-Man steps back into the spotlight to parody two more summer movies: Inglorious Basterds and District 9. In the Inglorious Basterds parody, Deadpool takes the place of Brad Pitt to lead a specialized group of Skrull-Killers, and in the process, gets the crowd riled up about eliminating the alien race. Afterwards, Spidey does District 9, which, ironically, features the Skrulls as the alien race on which the audience takes pity. In the process of learning their lesson, the heroes almost cause Spidey to go on another rant about G.I. Joe. 1-07 (07) "Marvel/DC Twilight and New Moon Parody" Harley Quinn, the Joker, Green Goblin, Nightwing, Robin, Batgirl, Batman, Spider-Man, Cyclops, Iron Man, Two-Face, Catwoman, Poison Ivy and Mr. Freeze November 19, 2009 The parodies continue as Harley Quinn spotlights a parody of Twilight and New Moon. In this video Harley recounts how she met the Joker and fell in love with him. 1-08 (08) "Marvel/DC Toy Story 3 Parody" Iron Man, Jonah Hex and Batman June 26, 2010 The parodies return after Iron Man desperately tries to achieve relevancy by comparing himself and Jonah Hex to Buzz and Woody from Toy Story. After realizing that he will never be number one after his only film, Jonah Hex, bombed at the box office, Jonah is depressed. Iron Man then gives Jonah a milkshake (a nod to the previous videos with Spider-Man), which causes Jonah to imagine the plot of his movie being performed by the cast of Toy Story 3. 1-09 (09) "Marvel/DC Pirates of the Caribbean Parody" Deadpool, Domino, Green Goblin, Sabretooth, Aquaman, Spider-Man, Iron Man and Cyclops May 23, 2011 In this parody, Deadpool dons a pirate hat and takes on the role of Captain Wade Sparrow and parodies the plot of Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. 1-10 (10) "Marvel/DC Kung Fu Panda Parody" Green Lantern, Green Lantern Corps, Sinestro, Spider-Man and Iron Man May 25, 2011 Spider-Man parodies Kung Fu Panda with the Green Lantern Corps as The Furious Five, Hal Jordan as Po and Sinestro as Master Shifu. The Green Lantern is embarrassed by the outcome of the parody and Iron Man tells him to play along with it. Iron Man is later driven angry as Spidey announces his next parody: Tony Stark as Priest. 1-10 (10) "Marvel/DC Hangover 2 Parody" Deadpool, Green Goblin, Sabretooth, Two-Face, Joker, Harley Quinn and Spider-Man May 27, 2011 Spider-Man parodies The Hangover Part II, with Deadpool as Phil, Sabretooth as Alan, Green Goblin as Stu and the Joker as Mr. Chow, with many nods to the fact that the story is basically the same.

To celebrate the 100th video by ItsJustSomeRandomGuy, Iron Man comes out and confesses what the critics have said about his sequel. Batman gives Iron Man credit for being so humble, but is interrupted as Iron Man proceeds to perform a musical about how continuity is a viable excuse for any flaws his movie had. Iron Man sings about topics ranging from giving up screen-time to fit Black Widow, Nick Fury, Captain America and Thor into Iron Man 2, the heroes owned by other studios (Spider-Man and X-Men,) and the Avengers coming up (with a quick tie-in to 2012.) Superman interrupts the song with his own verse about DC's movies being competition for Marvel's. When the song ends, Batman asks if Rhody (War Machine) looks any different since Rhodey's actor in Iron Man 2 is different, providing a sense of discontinuity. Iron Man responds with "Shut up."Featuring: Black Widow , Ultimate Nick Fury, Captain America, Thor, Spider-Man, Wolverine, Cyclops, Superman, Hulk, Human Torch, War Machine, Howard the Duck, Steel, Kick-Ass, The Losers, and many more.

Agrusso uses the GarageBand program on his computer to create much of the background music for his videos. He has composed a few pieces of music:
- The major theme behind most of Agrusso's videos is a simple three-chord progression that utilizes a synthesized piano and imitates the background of the "Hi, I'm a Mac" commercials.
- The opening music for After Hours #4 is techno piece that Agrusso composed. He later released a full version with audio snippets from past videos on YouTube.
