James and the Giant Reach: Why My Son’s Superhero Needs to Drop His McDonald’s Contract

James and the Giant Reach: Why My Son’s Superhero Needs to Drop His McDonald’s Contract

Rosa Perea's son’s devotion to the NBA legend LeBron James is exactly why his sponsorship with McDonald’s is deeply disturbing to her. When James holds a McDonald’s burger in his giant hand, his muscles bulging and a charming grin on his face, he’s telling Yousef and all those other kids that McDonald’s food is what a world-class athlete eats. LeBron James needs to do right by Perea's son Yousef and the millions of kids who adore him, and drop his sponsorship, protecting the health of kids everywhere.


Webcomic / The Adventures of Dr. McNinja

The Adventures of Dr. McNinja (alternate title: Rule of Cool: The Webcomic) was an action-comedy webcomic by Chris Hastings and Anthony "Nedroid" Clark, note Kent Archer inked the comic from its beginning until he left in 2010 Carly Monardo colored the comic for about a chapter and a half and the love child of the Rule of Cool and the Rule of Funny.

The story unofficially note The author recommends starting with "Meet the Doctor" rather than this one due to Early Installment Weirdness. begins with the eponymous omnidisciplinary doctor, who is also a Ninja, discovering that the McBonald's restaurant chain note Originally McDonald's, but Hastings later edited the pages to pre-emptively prevent getting sued. has created a burger bearing his name (marketed based on the burgers giving people "silent but deadly" farts). Naturally, he solves this copyright infringement by battling Donald McBonald himself.

The next arc, "Meet The Doctor And His Friendly Staff" introduces Dr. McNinja's gorilla receptionist, as the two of them race against time to save a patient with Paul Bunyan's Disease (an illness which turns children into giant lumberjacks) from both his lumberjacking tendencies and from some hunters who hunt giant lumberjacks.

"So What IS A McNinja?'' introduces the Doctor's family, who are very disappointed with him for not becoming a professional ninja. The McNinjas' origins are revealed, and of course there are pirates.

The next morning, the Doctor finds a raptor in his office ("There is a Raptor in My Office"). This turns out to be the tip of the iceberg, said iceberg being a conspiracy involving paleontologists-turned-banditos, organic jetpacks, MySpace and Fox News ChannelNewsCorp. At least the Doctor gets a sidekick out of the deal: a gunslinging, mustachioed 12-year-old named Gordito.

"D.A.R.E. To Resist Ninja Drugs and Ninja Violence" begins with McNinja facing a hard choice: Will he help his father defeat 80's action movie star Frans Rayner and his army of drug-enhanced ninja mooks? Or will he help the clone of Benjamin Franklin create a medicine to cure death?

. And everything after that point simply must be seen to be believed.

What's interesting about the comic is Hastings' sheer commitment to the utter weirdness. Every bizarre twist gets a completely straight reaction from the cast, and can have repercussions that stretch over multiple chapters. The overall effect is like a geodesic dome of absurdity, where every time the authors throw in a killer weatherman or cyborg bears or zombie Ben Franklin re-enacting the "Thriller" music video with situationally-appropriate lyrics, the plot becomes that much more believable. In the words of Chris Hastings, "Dr. McNinja lives in a world that operates like a Mortal Kombat stage" (but Cumberland, Maryland is a real place), so if you're a stickler for scientific and historical plausibility and blow a gasket whenever you see Hollywood Physics, please stay far away from this webcomic.

And just to prove the series hasn't hit the peak of absurdly awesome yet, in Summer of 2010, Doctor McNinja took part in a crossover with Axe Cop. In addition, on November 7, 2011, the doctor faced down with Saxton Hale. He lost, but the very idea of such a fight was awesome.

On August 3rd, 2015, Chris Hastings announced that the current storyline would be the last. Hastings fulfilled this prophecy on January 19, 2017, with the comic's final page.

At least the Doctor gets a sidekick out of the deal: a gunslinging, mustachioed 12-year-old named Gordito.

"D.A.R.E. To Resist Ninja Drugs and Ninja Violence" begins with McNinja facing a hard choice: Will he help his father defeat 80's action movie star Frans Rayner and his army of drug-enhanced ninja mooks? Or will he help the clone of Benjamin Franklin create a medicine to cure death?

. And everything after that point simply must be seen to be believed.

What's interesting about the comic is Hastings' sheer commitment to the utter weirdness. Every bizarre twist gets a completely straight reaction from the cast, and can have repercussions that stretch over multiple chapters. The overall effect is like a geodesic dome of absurdity, where every time the authors throw in a killer weatherman or cyborg bears or zombie Ben Franklin re-enacting the "Thriller" music video with situationally-appropriate lyrics, the plot becomes that much more believable. In the words of Chris Hastings, "Dr. McNinja lives in a world that operates like a Mortal Kombat stage" (but Cumberland, Maryland is a real place), so if you're a stickler for scientific and historical plausibility and blow a gasket whenever you see Hollywood Physics, please stay far away from this webcomic.

And just to prove the series hasn't hit the peak of absurdly awesome yet, in Summer of 2010, Doctor McNinja took part in a crossover with Axe Cop. In addition, on November 7, 2011, the doctor faced down with Saxton Hale. He lost, but the very idea of such a fight was awesome.

On August 3rd, 2015, Chris Hastings announced that the current storyline would be the last. Hastings fulfilled this prophecy on January 19, 2017, with the comic's final page.
