The question of how your favorite heroes will weather the adaptation to movie form has always been a little bit fraught for me as a fan.  The detective of Gotham City might turn into a camp avenger in a silk mask, while The Punisher might become a generic action hero with nothing interesting about him.  Recent years have actually turned this worry on its head, giving us a movie Tony Stark who is much more fun than the jerk in the comics, updating Spider-Man in fun, interesting ways and even making some kind of sense of Star-Lord, leading us to today’s flip-flop-swappy query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) would absolutely like to see movie Ian McKellen Magneto, if only to get rid of some of the massive retcons in his background, asking: If you could swap in the movie version of any single character to their TV, comic book or literature adventures, which one would you substitute?

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.
