About Jason Motes

Jason Motes profile photo
Jason's earliest memory is of watching 'Batman,' followed shortly by a memory of playing Batman & Robin with a friend, which entailed running outside in just their underwear and towels as capes. When adults told them they couldn't run around outside in their underwear, both boys promptly whipped theirs off and ran around in just capes. Jason's father gamely agreed to read him comic books as bedtime stories instead of 'Snow White.' (Super Friends being his favorite.) Jason saw all of the original Star Wars movies (and Indiana Jones and Superman and Star Trek...) in the theaters. Yes, he is old. And grew up in the most GEEKTASTIC decade ever, the 80s, devouring a steady diet of GI Joe, Transformers, Masters of the Universe, Princess of Power and (best of all) Jem! (It totally counts as sci fi! They had a sentient computer that projected holograms!) Jason has studied literature, journalism, film history and has a degree in creative writing (and a minor in psychology) from the University of South Alabama. He has worked as a technical writer and proofreader. These days, most of his creative energy goes into his blog and writing for this site! He lives with the cutest puppies ever.
Favorites: JJ Abrams' Star Trek, original Trek, original Star Wars, Super Friends, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, The Wonder Twins, Dazzler, DC Comics, Marvel Comics, Spider-Woman, Isis, 1966 Batman series, Y: The Last Man, Fables, The Walking Dead, anything by Ray Harryhausen, Batwoman, 90s Starman and as I said, Jem totally counts!
Location: Cincinnati, Ohio
