As a rule, I try to remain positive and upbeat in my enjoyment of the comics and pop culture I consume, even when hope seems senseless. I want to believe that the next Legion reboot will be the one that sticks, that Civil War II isn’t going to destroy Carol Danvers, that The Walking Dead won’t just do the same ‘Sanctuary, Attack, Humans Are The Real Monsters’ schtick this time. It can be hard, especially when so many fans are so very caustic about… Well, everything. Still, I want to believe that our stories are the best of us, and should reflect some positivity, and thus I have a responsibility as a reader not be a cynic, leading to today’s “WORST Query Everrrr…”
The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) likes to remember Elim Garak’s catchphrase, “There may be hope for you yet,” deployed whenever the hopeful Starfleet types got paranoid, asking: Regarding your favorite stories, are you more cynic or optimist?
