Later, Lucy Lawless is answering questions about ''Series/XenaWarriorPrincess'' while dressed as the titular character, when she is abducted by the Collector (Comic Book Guy), who puts her in a mylar bag and plans to marry her. Stretch Dude and Clobber Girl run to the rescue, but are defeated by the Collector, and put into a DeathTrap. In the meantime, Lucy Lawless tricks the Collector, knocks him into his own death trap, and saves the superheroes. She then flies off into the sunset with them. Clobber Girl protests that Xena can't fly, to which Lucy replies that [[IAmNotSpock she's not Xena]], she's Lucy Lawless.
