I’ve said it for some years now, but it’s still a statement of truth: Iron Man can be kind of a putz.  Yes, with the advent of Robert Downey Jr., he’s a much more approachable and charming putz, but he’s still pretty insufferable as a person and especially as a love interest.  Sure, he’s worth millions, but he’s also a public target for lunatics with exploding weaponry who want to hurt him through the people he loves, and a notorious womanizer to boot.  It’s a no-win situation for all involved.  Of course, even money can’t explain the strange romantic magnetism of George Costanza, who gives hope to all fat, balding Jewish men everywhere (and bless him for it, by the way), which leads us into today’s pheromonic query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) thinks that there’s also the question of why girls flock to James “Wolverine” Howlett, whose poor hygiene is referenced in story and whose dozens of wives and girlfriends have all been ripped to pieces, asking: Who is the most inexplicable ladies’ man in all of pop culture?


About Author

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.


    • That’s kind of what I meant. Wolverine became noticeably better looking once Hugh Jackman played him in the movies.

      He also grew like 9-10″.
