Thanks to the magic of the internet, I finally got to see the four-week Super Sentai miniseries, ‘4 Week Continuous Special Super Sentai Strongest Battle!!’  If the title alone doesn’t grab ya, it focused on a makeshift Sentai team of three Reds, the Pink Ranger from ToQGer (that’s the train season, which you’ve no doubt seen the screengrabs of here and there) and the most recent Orange Ranger, all of whom want to win a tournament for one single magic wish.  It’s equal parts touching, goofy, melodramatic and fun, but it also makes me want to field my own Super Madness tournament.  Who will reign supreme?  (I don’t know, but I be it won’t be Supreme.)  Yes, folks, it’s bracket time, leading us to today’s competitive query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) thinks that a definite advantage is held by Captain Marvel or Green Lantern John Stewart, especially since Kryptonite is still a thing and Batman is still pretty squishy, asking: What single character would you pick to defeat all others in your Super Madness tournament?

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. Probably Kazuma Kiryu from Sega’s Yakuza games. Why? Because he’s the only fictional character who’s never lost a fight as far as I know.
