n.— «Monologing: This is a brand-new term, created by the movie “The Incredibles.” It refers to a villain bragging to a captured hero, giving up all the details of his cunning scheme—which, inevitably, gives that hero time to escape and foil the plot. Batman foes are especially prone to monologing, as demonstrated by the “60s TV show. But James Bond villains are equally guilty, which the Austin Powers movies spoofed to good effect.» —“Captain Comics: Learn the comic fan’s jargon” by Andrew A. Smith Modesto Bee (California) .
