When it comes to the MS-QOTD, there are a lot of similarities to the houses at Hogwarts.  Some are heroic and educational, some are quirky and weird, some are pure evil…  Then, there are the MS-QOTD’s that just sort of happened, like those miscellaneous kids thrown into Hufflepuff.  Case in point: While alphabetizing my image files this weekend, I was impressed to see how many of them fell under the letter R, leading us to today’s wizardly query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) would tag Ragman, Rocket Racer, Robin (Stephanie Brown version), Roger Ramjet and Rogue, asking: If you had to assemble a team of superheroes whose named all begin with the letter R, who would you choose?

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- Raven as the leader
    2- Rocket Raccoon as the ‘muscle’
    3- Flash Gordon as the strategist (in the Latin-American dub he was called “Roldan” for some reason)
    4- Roboto (from the Masters of the Universe) because you gotta have a robot and he’d be an excellent chess partner
    5- Randus Duthane because he’s cool
