ItsJustSomeRandomGuy creator Michael Agrusso at the 2012 New York Comic Con.
|Known for||"Hi, I 'm a Marvel...and I'm a DC"|
ItsJustSomeRandomGuy is the alias of Michael Agrusso, an American voice acting teacher, writer, and performer working and living in Los Angeles, California. The channel is the source of the YouTube video parody series "Hi, I'm a Marvel...and I'm a DC", which spoofs Apple's Get a Mac television commercials, known for their opening lines, "Hello, I'm a Mac..." "...And I'm a PC."

In late February/early March 2007, Agrusso read the Internet news that the films based on the DC Comics characters The Flash and Wonder Woman both lost their directors due to creative differences with Warner Brothers on the same day. In contrast, several future films based on Marvel Comics characters were in production. He later saw a "Get a Mac" commercial, which he was inspired to use to parody the contrast success of Marvel and DC film productions.
Agrusso first wrote the scripts for four videos, using two characters, Spider-Man (Marvel) and Superman (DC), as their companies' representatives. He and Li filmed action figures in real time against a white sheet using the iSight camera on Agrusso's Mac notebook. They filmed the first video in an hour, and did the editing and voice work in another hour. On March 6, 2007, he created the ItsJustSomeRandomGuy channel on YouTube, and posted the first video. After posting the first two videos throughout March 2007, Agrusso posted six more videos in the subsequent months, also introducing other Marvel and DC characters, as well as original characters Lance (the bartender), Lars (a.k.a. Lance 2.0) and an unnamed referee.
Fearing the "Hi, I'm a Marvel" format would get old and repetitive, Agrusso and Li introduced a Heroes' Bar setting for their characters in their sixth and eighth Marvel vs. DC videos. They later abandoned the "Hi, I'm a Marvel" format altogether and started a new video series: After Hours. The first three After Hours episodes allowed Agrusso to expand his cast with characters from other comic book movie adaptations. The ending of After Hours #3 revealed a plot and set up the rest of the 7-part series as a complex and serious storyline in which Lex Luthor attempts to prevent Stan Lee from creating the Marvel Universe. Each subsequent episode became longer in playing time. The last two of After Hours had to be cut up into two parts and posted separately. The saga also explored new settings, most notably the wood-themed Villains Hangout.
Between After Hours #4 and #5, Agrusso informed fans that he was attending Comic Con 2007. There, representatives from Marvel.com approached him and Li and interviewed them. Afterwards, on August 14, Marvel.com posted the videotaped interview on their website. Concurrently, Agent M, an official Marvel.com blogger, also interviewed Agrusso and posted the channel's first video along with the interview transcript onto his blog. Since then, Agent_M has posted six other videos from Agrusso's channel. Also, in the interim period between After Hours #5 and #6, Agrusso created a new spin-off for the Green Goblin character. Titled Goblin Bloggin, it parodies Internet bloggers, as the Green Goblin rants about his life and relationships, and responds to emails. Agrusso set up a real hotmail account specifically for fans to write emails to the fake blog: firstname.lastname@example.org. He posted Goblin Bloggin' #2 between After Hours #6 and #7 on October 7, 2007, and Goblin Bloggin' #3 between Happy Hour #1 and #2 on July 6, 2008.
On December 2, 2007, the channel posted a holiday-themed video that strayed from the humorous tone of their videos with a theme of giving and receiving gifts. Based on Clement Clark Moore's poem, "'Twas the Night Before Christmas," Agrusso originally wrote it as a Christmas present to Li in December 2006. The video was featured on YouTube's main page for weeks.
More than two months after the last After Hours episode, which hinted at a second season with the Joker, Agrusso posted a promo video on January 27, 2008 for Happy Hour, the channel's second video series with a storyline. The promo has nothing to do with the real Happy Hour storyline. Three months later, on April 19, 2008, Happy Hour #1 debuted at the 2008 New York Comic Con and was posted on the channel hours later. Then the series would go on a five-month hiatus, as the summer of 2008 began. A month after the Happy Hour promo was released, Agrusso released news on the channel on February 19, 2008, that he was hired by the New York Comic Con to make promotional videos for their event in April 2008. However, he could not post them unless he got the rights from Marvel and DC. Two days later, he posted his first of three Marvel-centric promotional videos, indicating that Marvel supported and permitted him to post his videos with their characters. He posted the other two videos during the next two months before the event. On April 11, 2008, a week before the convention, Agrusso released more news that NYCC scheduled a live panel for him to premiere his first episode Happy Hour and talk with fans. The panel on April 19, 2008, called "ItsJustSomeRandomPanel", began with an opening montage, which compiled clips from his videos. (This video was posted on the channel later that night.) Agrusso officially started with a confession that he forgot to buy a second airline ticket for Li. Instead, he showed a video of her greeting to the fans, in which Li explains her important role in making the videos and guilt-tripped Agrusso in the process. This, too, was posted on the channel that night. Agrusso continued the presentation with the DC-centric promo videos he made for the convention. At the request of DC, he was not allowed to post them on the channel, and for the most part, the Internet public has not seen them. He then described Happy Hour as a series with actual sets, special effects and bigger storylines, but retaining the same humor. Then he showed the two-part Happy Hour #1. He later posted these videos as well, posting an unprecedented total 4 videos in one night.
Following the videos, there was a short Q&A session. The following is a summary of what Agrusso said:
- Agrusso made no money from the videos because that "opens up a legal can of worms".
- He did get paid for doing the promos for NYCC.
- He was open to doing ads for action figure companies and going outside the Marvel and DC lines
- As to whether he's been asked to write any comic books, he would not comment.
- All of his videos are done on his Mac computer.
- He does all the male characters' voices himself.
- He uses a ThorBuster Iron Man because "it was the best-looking Iron Man figure at the used toy store I shop at." He did not know it was Thorbuster armor. He told fans to wait for an upgraded Iron Man, once the movie-based figures are on sale.
- Happy Hour is the future of his video production efforts, again citing his fear of a revisited "Hi, I'm a Marvel" format getting stale.
- His Green Goblin video blog, "Goblin Bloggin'" will also continue.
- As to how the videos are made, Agrusso used a movie analogy: "I'd be like a writer/director" (and voice actor). Li does everything else: cinematography, props, and costumes; deserving more credit than fans might realize.
- Batman and Spider-Man make a great, unlikely comic duo: his Spider-Man is geeky, while Batman is everything Spidey hopes to be: "cool, rich and driving cars." Green Goblin and Lex Luthor have a similar dynamic.
- As for ItsJustSomeRandomGuy leaving YouTube to start his own site: "I'd love to do the same thing with banner ads and get paid for this." However, it exposes him to legal issues if he makes a profit.
In the summer of 2008, five superhero movie blockbusters opened: Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Hancock, Hellboy II: The Golden Army, and The Dark Knight. In response, Agrusso created a second "Hi, I'm a Marvel" series, this time with Iron Man (Marvel), the Hulk (Marvel), Batman (DC) and Hellboy (Dark Horse) instead of Spider-Man and Superman. The series spanned across the duration of the summer as the new superhero movies opened.
On October 3, 2008, over five months since the debut of Happy Hour #1, Agrusso posted Happy Hour #2. The reason for the time gap was that Agrusso and Li went back to the "Hi, I'm a Marvel" format during the 2008 summer movie season, making seven videos in that time. On November 5, 2008, Agrusso posted Happy Hour #3. On January 15, 2009, Agrusso posted Happy Hour #4. In the video information section, he posted this message: "To Be Concluded at the New York Comic Con on February 7 at 4:00 on ItsJustSomeRandomGuy's Panel! Premiering online afterwards!" On February 8, 2009, Happy Hour #5 debuted at the 2009 New York Comic Con and was posted on the channel hours later. This concluded the Happy Hour storyline.
Agrusso was again hired by the New York Comic Con to make promotional videos for their event in February 2009. On December 18, 2008, December 31, 2008, January 13, 2009, January 21, 2009, and January 28, 2009, he posted five more Marvel-centric promotional videos, the second of which parodies the MasterCard "priceless" television commercials. In addition to the promotional videos, NYCC again scheduled a panel for Agrusso and Li, this time to premiere the season finale of Happy Hour, more new videos, and hold a question and answer session.
In February 2009, Agrusso and Li took several intentional steps to connect with fans of ItsJustSomeRandomGuy. They created a Twitter account so that fans could be more easily updated about their activities, they collaborated with another parody video maker, The Fine Brothers, by voicing Batman in their Lost parody series, and on February 24, 2009, they hosted a live Q&A session on blogTV to answer questions from fans who could not be at New York Comic Con 2009. On February 24, 2009, immediately after their live Q&A session via blogTV, Agrusso and Li recorded a 10-minute video on blogTV, allowing for anyone who missed the session to view a sampling of it. As of March 28, 2009, the video has been viewed over 11,830 times. On February 26, 2009, Agrusso submitted a request to YouTube that ItsJustSomeRandomGuy be a YouTube partner channel, and it was promptly accepted. As a partner, Agrusso and Li now receive a share in revenue for advertisements seen during their videos, and they also have partner privileges, such as the automatic play of a video, the ability to post more than three playlists on their channel, and the distribution of their videos to "the largest worldwide online video community" via YouTube and its syndication partners. On March 26, 2009, Agrusso posted a short video announcing that he and Li would begin broadcasting weekly live chat sessions on blogTV, every Tuesday night starting on March 31, 2009.
2009 saw the opening of Watchmen and X-Men Origins: Wolverine. In response, Agrusso started a third "Hi, I'm a Marvel" series with Wolverine, Sabretooth, Deadpool, Cyclops, and Gambit representing Marvel and Rorschach, Doctor Manhattan, The Comedian and Nite Owl representing DC. The first video was posted on March 4, 2009, the second was posted on March 13, 2009, and the third was posted on March 23, 2009. Also in 2009, Agrusso began spoofing the major summer blockbusters with his the Marvel/DC characters since no comic book movies from Marvel and DC were being released.
In 2010, Marvel released Iron Man 2 and DC released Jonah Hex. Argusso created a fourth "Hi, I'm a Marvel" series to coincide with the film's releases. He uses Iron Man to represent Marvel and Jonah Hex to represent DC. The first video released on May 5, 2010 and the second released on May 24, 2010. The video that premiered on May 24 was ItsJustSomeRandomGuy's 100th upload.
The characters within these parodies are mostly based on characters from DC or Marvel Comics.
- Superman serves as the main DC mascot. He often feels forgotten due to the range of new superhero films. All the X-Men - especially Wolverine - hate him because, in Superman Returns, he stole their director (Bryan Singer) and must be contended for the "Rush Hour guy" (Brett Ratner).
- Batman generally acts disinterested around everyone, except for Spider-Man, whom he considers an "acquaintance" and who wonders why Batman's films are so popular. Instead of saying "I'm a DC," Batman almost always introduces himself with, "I'm Batman." He seems to be the smartest of the heroes as he can telepathically communicate with Professor X. Batman also has an odd friendship with Iron Man, even after fighting over each other's films.
- Green Lantern (Hal Jordan) frequently expresses remorse for his film. Deadpool of Marvel shows resentment towards him since they are both played by Ryan Reynolds.
- Wonder Woman serves as a mother figure to DC heroes who do not have films of their own.
- Jonah Hex, like Green Lantern, also regrets that his 2010 feature was a critical failure.
- Rorschach is a tough-talker to whom Deadpool often serves as a comic foil.
- Batgirl - much like Wonder Woman, she is a motherly figure to Batman sidekicks such as Nightwing, Tim Drake, and Terry McGinnis
- Tim Drake - Presented as Batman's current Robin
- Dick Grayson - Presented as Nightwing and does not get along with Terry McGinnis
- Terry McGinnis - Does not get along with Dick Grayson and has a negative view on everything
- Night Owl - Presented as a "Nice Guy" type of hero who is claimed to be like Batman without the dignity
- Dr. Manhattan - A calmly spoken man who is very intelligent
- The Comedian - Is very quiet
- Spider-Man serves as the main Marvel mascot. He respects Batman and shows sympathy for Superman's follies. He is often given spiked milkshakes and blames himself for losing the Transformers and G.I. Joe comics franchise from Marvel for no apparent reason.
- Wolverine - Snarky and ill-tempered. Believes Superman is against mutants because he stole his director.
- Iron Man - Mostly portrays an alcoholic personality. Often shows jealousy towards other comic character, particularly Batman and Spider-Man. Admitted to have slept with a LMD with a female design and is insulted by both heroes and villains on contracting herpes which he denies.
- Hulk likes to reminisce on his past, particularly when his TV series was on the air. He works as a security guard at the hero's bar.
- Deadpool - Often makes jokes and breaks the fourth wall, very much like his comic book counterpart - he even knows his true nature as an action figure. Has resentment towards Green Lantern since they are both portrayed by Ryan Reynolds. Often paired with Rorschach, who often gets annoyed and then shoots him. Hates his portrayal in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Deadpool's knowledge of the fourth wall extends to his knowledge of Randomguy and the fact that he exists within a fanmade video series. This proves to be critical information during Zero Hour as he uses one of Darkseid's own devices to forcefeed his knowledge of what lies beyond the fourth wall into Darkseid's mind, causing him to collapse. His relationship with Rorschach is expanded during Zero Hour, as he becomes enraged by his death and embraces Rorschach when Death revives him after he tells her that Rorschach was effectively his perfect foil due to having such a strong conviction about right and wrong which Deadpool lacked.
- Cyclops - Determined not to be another "goody-two-shoes" hero that is either forgotten about and usually killed off in the films.
- The Fantastic Four - Not usually shown, but, Thing sometimes appears in part-time jobs (e.g. Security guard)
- Nick Fury - Often shows resentment and jealousy towards Ultimate Nick Fury, who appears in feature films and is played by Samuel L. Jackson, while he just got a TV movie where David Hasselhoff plays him.
- Captain America is well-respected by other Marvel heroes to such an extent that that they attack Green Lantern for making fun of him during a Round Five match.
- Daredevil - Soflty spoken who is oblivious toward the Comic Book Movies due to the fact that he is blind. He thinks that Guy Pearce played him in his 2003 film
- Thor - Talks as if he is still on Asgard; gets along with DC heroes to a degree
- Elektra - Has resentment toward Catwoman
- Blade - Has an open, "you'll just have to find out" sort of attitude
- The Punisher - Presented as an alcoholic, violent person with a negative view on life and his movie
- Ghost Rider - Has a negative outlook towards Spider-Man because he sold his marriage to the devil
- Lex Luthor - The owner of the villain's bar, likes monologues and isn't trusted by any of the other villains. He has a tendency to create new grammars that doesn't make sense. He installed cameras all over the Heroes' and Villain bar to spy on everyone, commented to have bought Google Earth.
- The Joker - Mistreats Harley and plans to make Batman's life a misery. He was the primary antagonist during Happy Hour, and was heavily altered by Darkseid between the end of Happy Hour and the beginning of Zero Hour. The Joker was originally represented by a figure from the New Batman/Superman adventures only to be changed to a figure more closely representing his 1990s comic book incarnation. During Zero Hour, he was represented by a figure whose design resembled the Joker as he appeared in the Dark Knight Returns. He is responsible for Darkseid learning of his origins as a comic book character, and also briefly controlled the minds of the majority of heroes, with the exception of Spider-Man and Batman during Happy Hour. His current status after the end of Zero Hour is unknown, though he is shown to have reverted to the figure which previously represented him, signalling he was no longer under Darkseid's control.
- Harley Quinn - Completely loyal to the Joker in her first appearances, even though he mistreats her. She starts to develop feelings for the Green Goblin, which is briefly hinted at when she accepts Goblin's offer to go out on a date for coffee at the end of After Hours. At the end of Happy Hour she had been living with Goblin, but in Zero Hour it was shown that she still pined for the then presumed-dead Joker, much to Goblin's dismay. At the conclusion of Zero Hour she chooses to give up on the Joker and joins the Goblin in the parallel reality that Darkseid intended to house a 'rebooted' version of the world of the combined universe which Stan's Place inhabited. Both she and the Goblin are apparently replaced by their 'reboot' counterparts in the main reality at the end of Zero Hour. The reboot versions appear to have no romantic feelings towards one another. The fate of the original versions, presumably still in the 'rebooted' universe are currently unknown.
- Poison Ivy - Annoyed that most girls in comics are portrayed as being completely gaga over the guys, but, is herself desperately in love with Sandman.
- Two-Face - Shown on occasion to hang out with fellow Batman villains such as The Joker and The Penguin
- The Penguin - Shown on occasion to hang out with fellow Batman villains such as The Joker and Two-Face
- Catwoman - rarely shown
- Darkseid - The primary antagonist working behind the scenes of Zero Hour, he is first seen at the end of Happy Hour confronting the Joker, who is at that point presumed dead by everyone on the combined Marvel/DC reality in which the videos normally take place. In episode five part one of Zero Hour the scene featuring Darkseid's first appearance in the series was expanded, as part of the backstory to the events of the Zero Hour videos. He is at first shown to be unaware of his fictional nature, and is told of it by the Joker. Lex Luthor originally planned to trick the heroes into travelling to Apokolips to battle Darkseid as part of a plan to seize control of Stan's Place, the dimensional nexus which links seemingly all comic book universes within the videos, but scrapped the plan because Darkseid was unaware of his status as a fictional character and had no idea how Darkseid would react if told the truth. Darkseid plans to use a device to 'reboot' the universe the videos take place in, intending to become the sole ruler of the 'new' reality and nearly succeeds, until Deadpool reveals that he is still in a world of fiction, as he is personally aware of the nature of the YouTube videos— and apparently aware of RandomGuy as well, as Darkseid is forcefed all of Deadpool's knowledge due to his ability to breach the fourth wall. As a result, Darkseid appears to suffer a mental breakdown and collapses. His current status within the universe of the videos after the end of Zero Hour is unknown.
- Green Goblin - Has a crush on/on-and-off relationship with Harley Quinn. Hosts Goblin Bloggin and has a devotion to Willem Dafoe. Mostly shown to have an idiotic personality. He is loud and sarcastic, and enjoys alcoholic beverages. In Zero Hour, it is revealed that Goblin is this way by his own choice, as Stan's place allows the characters in the comic book universes to choose how they act in the linked world that the bar provides. While most of the characters chose to act in a manner reminiscent of their comic book and/or movie incarnations, Norman Osborn did not, resulting in the comedic and zany personality he shows in the series. He is still known to be a scientist, as mentioned by Lex himself during Zero Hour, but normally does not display these traits due to his more comedic role.
- Magneto - Sometimes is allowed into the hero's bar and plays chess with Professor Xavier. Appeared opposite Green Lantern during one of the Marvel/DC shorts, and battered Lantern with a locker before Lantern turned his ring on him. Like the majority of the villains, he does not trust Luthor and at one point attempted to attack him during After Hours.
- Dr. Doom - Mistrusts Lex Luthor. He is largely considered equal or near-equal to Luthor in intelligence and at one point possessing similar technology, most of which he pooled with Lex, and which was destroyed during the final episode of After Hours.
- Sabretooth - Hangs out at the villain's bar a lot.
- Venom - Constantly mocked about his small part in Spider-Man 3
- Juggernaut - drinks a lot at the villain's bar
- Pyro - hangs out at the villain's bar
- Mystique - rarely shown
Characters from other companies make occasional appearances, such as Hellboy (Dark Horse Comics), Woody from Toy Story (Disney), Spawn (Image Comics), Kick-Ass (Icon), The Losers (Vertigo), and Constantine (Vertigo).

He then added a video to the "Favorites" section on the channel, which promotes the aforementioned event. Although the video was posted by the ONTPGA YouTube channel on August 27, 2008, the video is clearly Agrusso's and Li's work, as it is in the same format as his other videos (live-action figurines voiced by Agrusso). While he does not use any Marvel or DC action figures, there is a cameo appearance by Agrusso's original character, Lance M. Donovan.
Reception and popularity
As of November 25, 2012, 165,528 YouTube users were subscribed to the channel and its videos had been viewed more than 79 million times; the channel's first video has been viewed over 4.8 million times. An official press release by New York Comic Con via Comic Book Resources called Agrusso "a genuine Internet superstar." In July 2008, q4music.com ranked one of the channel's videos as one of the top ten YouTube videos of the month.
Several online magazines such as Wonderland Stream magazine, Comic Book Resources, Newsarama, Comic Mix, and SpoutBlog have posted interviews with Agrusso, the channel's creator. Several others have reviewed, researched, and written articles about the channel, giving it even wider exposure. In fact, the channel has become so popular that Joe Leo, a columnist for the Apple's advertising strategic partner, PowerBook Central, took note and wrote an article in his column about it.
Although Agrusso does not work for Marvel, Marvel.com has a featured blog that shows the videos and posts their interviews with him. In March 2008, Marvel gave him the rights to use their characters in promotional videos for New York Comic Con 2008. The channel re-invents the personalities of several comic book characters, including the Green Goblin. On October 1, 2008, Iron Man director Jon Favreau mentioned ItsJustSomeRandomGuy's work in a Los Angeles Times live chat: "I LOVE the Marvel/DC YouTube bits on Iron Man and Dark Knight. Awesome. The Marvel guys love them too."
Since the channel's first video in March 2007, several other successful Marvel/DC video series have been created, as well as promotional videos for a major comic book convention, which also gave Agrusso his own discussion panel to talk about the channel. Several external websites have posted its videos on their own webpages.
In 2012, Agrusso voiced Superman in an episode of the popular web series, Death Battle, by Screwattack, and also helped promote the video with his own skits. It was the most highly requested episode in which Superman would fight Goku from Dragon Ball Z, and has received 30 million views to this day. Agrusso reprised his role for a second episode in 2015.

He then explains that the time travel technology he salvaged was limited to a time loop and bringing the heroes to the future was the only way to avoid being mistaken or creating a paradox.

But as Hulk points out, they haven't gotten to the latest movie: Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. But then, Spider-Man gets a nightmare about people praising Marvel's supposed success with Transformers 2, which leads him to wake up and go on a rant about how Marvel had lost the rights to the franchise about 20 years before (and that he apparently blames himself for it).

Afterwards, Spidey does District 9, which, ironically, features the Skrulls as the alien race on which the audience takes pity. In the process of learning their lesson, the heroes almost cause Spidey to go on another rant about G.I. Joe.|

|After The Walt Disney Company buys Marvel Entertainment, the characters present two possibilities as to the future of Marvel. In the first possibility, with help from a generic song, the characters sing about how Disney will make everything in Marvel conform to the stereotypically family-friendly image associated with Disney, forever ruining the comic book giant. In the second possibility, the characters sing and act out parody of The Lion King's "Circle of Life" with Spider-Man as Simba wearing Mickey Mouse ears and Deadpool as Rafiki. This suggests that Disney will stay true to the concept of Marvel, and there will be no changes at all, aside from a slight jump in productivity. After the songs, Spider-Man, as confused as the fans are, asks Batman what will happen.|

|#||"Hi, I'm a Marvel... and I'm a DC: The Musical (100th Video)"||Everyone||May 24, 2010|
To celebrate the 100th video by ItsJustSomeRandomGuy, Iron Man comes out and confesses what the critics have said about his sequel. Batman gives Iron Man credit for being so humble but is interrupted as Iron Man proceeds to perform a musical about how continuity is a viable excuse for any flaws his movie had. Iron Man sings about topics such as giving up screen-time to fit Black Widow and Nick Fury into Iron Man 2, the Marvel heroes owned by other studios (Spider-Man and the X-Men), and The Avengers (with a quick tie-in to the 2012 phenomenon). Superman even interrupts the song halfway through with his own verse about competition from DC. When the song ends, Batman asks if Rhody (War Machine) looks any different since Rhodey's actor in Iron Man 2 is different from the original, providing a sense of discontinuity. Iron Man responds with, "Shut up."Featuring: Black Widow , Ultimate Nick Fury, Captain America, Thor, Spider-Man, Wolverine, Cyclops, Superman, Hulk, Human Torch, War Machine, Howard the Duck, Steel, Kick-Ass, The Losers, and many more.

Agrusso uses the GarageBand program on his computer to create much of the background music for his videos. He has composed a few pieces of music:
- The major theme behind most of Agrusso's videos is a simple three-chord progression that utilizes a synthesized piano and imitates the background of the "Hello, I'm a Mac" commercials.
- The opening music for After Hours #4 is techno piece that Agrusso composed. He later released a full version with audio snippets from past videos on YouTube.
