    So I am a huge fan of Marvel and DC. However, I'm a bit concerned about the 'Fake Geek Girl' thing which is the only reason that has stopped me from wearing merch outside my house. I also haven't been in a comic book shop for years because I seriously felt like I stood out since I was the only girl there.

    However, I'm planning to change all that this summer. It's a bit depressing that I actually have to ask for advice on this but what good comebacks can I have if someone comes up to me and asks something like, 'I bet you haven't read any Iron Man comics!11!!!'

    Of course, these situations might not happen at all but I would like to be prepared. Cheers

    Say 'how much do you bet?'. Make a bit of money out of the situation and keep the dude there for hours rattling off facts.

    I found a website that has examples of a few insults which I would like some good comebacks to if anyone's willing to help.

    To me, this sounds more like a compliment than an insult. They're basically saying you're not a massive fedora-wearing neckbeard. Give them a hug, cry out a tear, and tell them thank you.

    Do a quick scan of the room and think of some general cusses that apply to all of them.

    The only problem is that I can never think of one on time and then I will come up with a good comeback 2 years later

    Play the old 2 sided card. If you're knowledgable on something nerdy, great, show off. If there's something you're not into and they quiz you on it, proceed to laugh at them for being so sad for actually reading such rubbish.

    Let's be real, though, are these geeky guys really gonna be interacting with a girl? No :rofl:

    I'm not sure They could come in all shapes and sizes so its kind of hard to pick something. Perhaps you could brainstorm cusses for certain types of people before you go into the shop?
