I don't believe Ramey ever mentioned Hero, actually. It'd be nice if he'd chime in. (slacker)
But it was funny when james first shared him with me, I believe it went like this...
James: (sends image)
James: Yeah. It probably woulda went faster if Jesse just said "make him look like Chris Hero".
Kyle: I was thinking the exact same thing. That's NOT Hero?
James: That's not Hero.
Kyle: I officially lub Mulligan.
...fine, there may or may not be some creative license taken with the conversation, but that's the jist.
