I have no idea what the greatest gift of all-time was before, but now that title firmly belongs to the present Jimmy Kimmel received for his 50th birthday from some of the biggest stars in Hollywood. Guests Ben Affleck and director J.J. Abrams surprised the late night host with a real-life version of the superhero comic book Kimmel wrote as a kid, The Terrific Ten, and its cast puts other super team movies to shame.
It was a night of surprises for Kimmel, and that included when J.J. Abrams showed up with an actual comic book Kimmel had written and illustrated as a kid, featuring characters like Rainbow Man, Lucky Lad, Bendolite, and Muscle Man. And the only thing better than the newest team of heroes was the All-Star cast Abrams got to play them.
Has there ever been a better casting of a villain than Matt Damon as the arch enemy of Jimmy Kimmel’s hero?
I love everything about this and need—nay, demand!—an entire cinematic universe now. Or at the very least just turn this into a full-length feature film. I realize to make a movie with Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, Jennifer Aniston, Zach Galifianakis, Jason Bateman, Will Arnett, Jimmy’s Cousin Sal, Jon Hamm, Shaq, Ty Burrell, Billy Crudup, and Wanda Sykes would cost way too much, so I promise to see this 10 times in theaters.
This doesn’t just have to be the greatest birthday gift ever; it could be the greatest superhero movie ever too.
Which one of these characters would make for the most compelling comic book hero? Can you think of a better present to get? Turn our comments section into a page turner with your thoughts.
