As part of Syfy 25 – where we’re looking back at everything amazing that’s happened in the world of sci-fi, fantasy, and horror over the last 25 years – we asked a bunch of famous people what sort of geeky stuff they like. Here’s what The Magicians' Rick Worthy had to say.
The one thing I geek out over the most is:
Movie trailers for upcoming superhero movies!! Also Star Wars and really good fantasy like Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings.
The first thing I remember geeking out over is:
Superman: The Movie (1978).
The science fiction/fantasy creator I most respect is:
Stan Lee. 'Nuff said.
My geeky guilty pleasure is:
Sitting in a movie theater with popcorn and M&Ms and escaping from the world for two hours.
The current state of science fiction in three words:
Future Is Here.
The biggest genre game-changer of the last 25 years was:

The best quote from anyone in the genre, real or fictional, is:

The best Batman was:
Adam West. Period.
If I could time-travel I would:

If I could have one superpower, it would be:
If I could have one superpower it would be to heal any living thing.
In a fight between Dumbledore and Gandalf, who would win?
Might be a tie!!
In a fight between Wonder Woman and Superman, who would win?
Hell hath no fury like a Goddess scorned!! Gonna go with Diana, Queen of the Amazon.
In a fight between Hulk and Thor, who would win?
Gonna go with Thor. He is godlike, if not a god. And can throw his mighty hammer.
In six words or less, what words of wisdom do you have for fellow fans?
It's awesome to be a geek!
