Conan’s Mad Max tribute that launched his stay at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con left him with a tough act to follow, but follow it he did! Which is good because it would be weird to give up on your show just because you did such a good job on one clip. Weird and unprofessional. Two things Conan is not! Or, well, he’s a little weird, but definitely the keep-doing-your-show kind of weird.

Just one day after repaving Fury Road, Conan paid homage to another Comic-Con favorite, the superhero origin story, by presenting us with his own origin story. And then he presented some other stories, too. You know how it is—once you start showing your audience epic clips of stories from your personal life, it’s hard to do only one.
