Major Spoilers Question Of The Day: Best Second Banana Edition

by

Recently, I had the odd experience of suddenly wanting to see a movie that I didn’t really want to see (Captain America: The Winter Soldier), based on the fleeting trailer appearance of a favorite character (The Falcon).  As he is one of my favorite mid-carders in the Marvel Universe, Sam Wilson’s first appearance in live-action has me super-psyched, as it raises the hope that he might end up a part of Avengers 2.  Most importantly, it adds more character options to the Marvel movie-verse both for crossovers and cameos and for future solo movie adventures, something I’m all for.  Though I do enjoy movie Iron Man, I’m secretly hoping to see The Defenders, Machine Man, Stingray and Nova making their way to the big screen, if only to infuriate and vex the people who whine about “second-stringers”, leading to today’s query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) wants to stem the tide of internet snark and hate-facery with a little positive energy for the “B-Listers” of the world, asking: Who’s your favorite secondary character in all of pop-culture?
