Doctor Klock

It's DOCTOR KLOCK NOW! I passed my dissertation defence at Oxford and now have a doctorate. As my friend Jennifer said, of course the coronation of a guy with a comic book super villain name was heralded by the first of a series of biblical plagues here in Oxford. I will be doing a few self-indulgent posts on this in the coming week and a half, including photos of me in the robes, and a post that is simply a list of comic book characters who have, or claim to have, doctoral degrees. I may even change the blog header to read "Doctor Geoff Klock's Blog" but only for a week, I promise.

Congrats Geoff!

You don't HAVE to be a supervillain... what's wrong with "Dr. Klock and the Time Commandos!"? Someone has to combat the Anachromancers...

Congrats to you, Dr. Sir. In the most recent, Ed Brubaker written (I believe, I could be wrong), Dr. Doom origin, it's revealed that Doom was just Doom for a while when he was in India creating mad science, saw Reed Richards on TV called "Dr. Richards" and then began shouting the equivalent of "No way! If he's a Doctor, I'm *so* a Doctor! I'm a Super Doctor plus infinity! Everyone has to call me Super Doctor Doom plus Infinity for forever!" Or something like that. Again, congrats!

Congratulations!!! Nothing wrong with being proud of the work you've done. I can't wait until I can do the same (I have a couple of years left).

"Don't be fooled by the doctorate I got,
I'm still I'm still Geoff from the block."

Sorry, it just came to me ...

Congratulations, Geoff!

If you don't start wearing a round mask with hour and minute hands then comics have lied to me my entire life. And that clearly cannot be the case.

Well done, Doc Klock. I look forward to your ensuing reign of unholy terror.

Congratulations Dr. Boyfriend!!

and while I will never support the supervillian career (I am NOT feeding and laundering the jumpsuits of your minions) the doctoral robes do make you look extra sinister...

Congratulations, Dr. Klock! Will you be planning on having students address you as Doc Klock, Dr. Klock, Professor Klock, or Geoff? I'm looking forward to the list.

Both a Doctor and a Comic Book Scientist. Nice one.

Best.
