Even today, our pop culture is full of royalty, with an unrepresentative number of them princesses.  Leia, Peach, even Ariel from ‘The Little Mermaid’ is one, and she collects forks.  Regardless of hobbies or cinnamon bun hair, the Princess Supreme is writ large in our pop culture, leading to today’s once upon a query…

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. I think its Leia to me. First one really making an impact and looked just as capable as the boys when I saw Star Wars as a kid.

  2. I’ve gotta go with Sailor Moon. I mean, pretty make-up moon power was a big deal for someone who wanted to paint their nails but still wanted to be considered powerful.

  3. “The Princess” from ‘Rusty and Co.’ (a great webcomic) She is a combat boot wearing subversion of the helpless princess trope. “The Princess” is monk with a few levels in “DM’s Girlfriend’.
