In keeping with my recurring October theme of fear and loathing, I asked my daughter what is scary.  Her response: “Little kids are scary, especially the creepy ones.”  Anyone who’s ever seen horror films like ‘Village Of The Damned’ can attest to this, and even children who aren’t meant to be the creepy kid (like Vicky The Robot from ‘Small Wonder’) can be terrifying in the wrong context, and even a thirteen-year-old can see it, leading to today’s preadolescent query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”)can’t think of anything creepier than tween assassin/jerkface Damian Wayne, the current Robin, asking: Who is the creepiest (fictional) creepy kid of them all?

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.
