1) SPRITE


Perhaps best remembered for the invention of “lymon”, a combination the drink’s lemon and lime flavors.  Sprite also wants each of us to obey our thirst, which seems rather pushy and over-the-top for carbonated sugar-water.  Equally over-the-top is the fashion sense of 14-year-old Kitty Pryde, the X-Man known as Ariel, Shadowcat and Sprite during her tenure.  In an attempt to create a more modern costume (for 1982 values of modern), she inadvertently created a fashion abomination, and I say that as a man who wore a grey-green corduroy fedora for several years.

Thanks to Faithful Spoilerite and occasional contributor Jon Arvedon for this week’s topic!  Feel free to follow along @MightyKingCobra for more Ten Things madness on Twitter or check out the full archive here! As with any set of like items, these aren’t meant to be hard and fast or absolutely complete, especially since half a dozen people are ready to tell us how I forgot Pepsiman…

Either way, the comments section is Below for just such an emergency, but, as always: Please, no wagering!

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.
