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).

It is, without a doubt, THE BEST superhero film EVER MADE. Christopher Reeve was, is, and always will be the Best Superman and Clark Kent ever.  And NO ONE will ever play Lois Lane as wonderfully as Margot Kidder. It's amazing.

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:
Good question. Probably James Cameron's Avatar.

The best quote from anyone in the genre, real or fictional, is:
"You've got me? ... WHO'S GOT YOU!?" -- Lois Lane to Superman after he stops her from falling to her death from the top of the New York Times building in NYC. Perfect. 

The best Batman was:
Adam West. Period.

If I could time-travel I would:
If I could time-travel I would go back to various points in my family tree and "see" ALL the people that led up to me being born.

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!
