There are a lot of tellers of mistruths in our favorite stories: Barney Stinson.  Lex Luthor.  Light Yagami.  All have a legitimate claim to being the greatest liar in the world, and since they exist in different fictional worlds, all could be the right answer.  But then there’s Loki, a character who has to put in effort to actually speak the truth.  Or perhaps Severus Snape, who LIVED a lie, surrounded by mystical beings who could divine a normal wizard’s intentions in a heartbeat.  The fact that there’s a surfeit of possible candidates for today’s MS-QOTD probably says something about modern pop culture, but it at least makes for a sporting take on today’s untrustworthy query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) will always argue John Constantine, even complaining about the pronunciation, but still reminding Faithful Spoilerites that he lied to not one, not TWO but THREE literal devils, asking: What fictional character is the greatest liar in the world?


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.
