Back in the day Coilhouse walked to elementary school carrying a Silhouette lunch box.

Leave it to coilhouse to be plugged into the zeitgeist of the 30 something goth. I mean, they've already covered wumpskate, cabaret voltaire, and even the death of Gary Gygax.

So it was with little to no surprise that after a spirited debate with the keller over a minor character in the Watchmen, I should find that Coilhouse's interest was also peaked.

The character in question is the Silhouette:

Patrick and I couldn't remember her from the comic book. I assumed that maybe they sort of used Hooded Justice as an inspiration as I remember that he was in the closet and dating Cpt. Metropolis using Silk Spectre as a beard. I guessed that the Silhouette was hollywood's way of spicing up the "one of the old super hero's was gay" sub plot.

Coilhouse dug a little deeper and found out some more information on both the character and the Slavic Fitness Model who played her.

I will say this. When she came on screen and totally macked on that girl in that somewhat remake of that famous pic of the sailor kissing that girl, I found I had said, "YEAH!" pretty loud in the theater.
