It’s always easier to see the flaws in others’ behavior than in your own.  While I have no idea what I might resolve for myself, I know that, in 2016, Bruce Banner needs anger management classes.  Mal Reynolds should resolve to let go of the pain of the past, and Buffy Summers really needs to address her attraction to the bad creatures she’s chosen to combat.  Indeed, making up a New Year’s Resolution for your Imaginary friends is more satisfying than for one’s self, (Deadpool should start taking his meds regularly) leading to today’s easily broken query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) might also resolve for the lady-friends of George Costanza, Ross Gellar and Ted Mosby to be more discerning in their choice of men, asking: What resolution do you think would most benefit your favorite fictional character(s)?

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.


  1. While not one of my favorite characters exactly, though he is from one of my favorite franchises, I think Hal Jordan needs the resolution “Stop being such an unlikable jerk”. But I don’t know if that is realistically possible.
