I am a follower of many people on the Twitter, ranging from wrestler Kevin Nash to Sixth Doctor Colin Baker and back, but one of the most fascinating feeds comes from comic genius Gail Simone. Recently, she asked her Twitter followers a very pointed question, one that set the gears in my head a’rolling. It was a very comic-fan kind of query, the kind of discussion that comes up once you’ve exhausted the Ginger/Mary Ann Paradox and the endless permutations of “Who’d win?” Before I tell you Gail’s brilliantly simple question, I’m going to go against usual MS-QOTD protocol and tell you my answer: The Wasp, She-Hulk and the Scarlet Witch, a perfect balance of the fun-loving savvy lawyer, her socialite pal who also happens to be a brilliant tactician, and their hot-blooded partner who can bend the very fabric of the universe to her will. It’s a win-win for everyone, especially the House of Ideas, a place where books with female protagonists have historically been a bit thin on the ground.
