Major Spoilers Question Of The Day: Effortlessly Bad@$$ Edition


The mythology of “cool” is a strange and nebulous beastie.  From my perspective, as a child of the 70s, I immediately think of Henry Winkler’s Fonz as the epitome of self-confident actualization, but my elders could easily make arguments for the likes of James Dean, Humphrey Bogart, or even the legendary Achilles.  Whomever or whatever you deem to be the perfect indicator of self-possession, we can all agree: We know it when we see it.  Exposure in my tween years to the exploits of daredevil biker and erstwhile cowboy Johnny Blaze (aka the original motorcyclin’ Ghost Rider) has cemented him as one of, if not THE first image that comes to mind when someone asks me to define that damn-near meaningless term, with Sky Masterson and Captain Okona close behind.  All in all, admiration of those with their metaphorical $#!+ together is universal (*coughHanSolocough*) which in turn begs a query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) notes that the definitions in play are going to be very vague and subjective, and is kind of find with that, asking: Who’s the most inherently cool character in all of pop culture?
