My social media this week was afire with people discovering that the actress who now plays XS on ‘The Flash’ was also Plastique more than a decade ago on ‘Smallville.’  It is a pretty strange realization, not just because Jessica Parker Kennedy doesn’t seem to age, but because the adventures of young Clark Kent seems like it happened a lifetime ago.  Granted, I never actually watched the show regularly (I think I’ve seen five or six episodes all told), but their Plastique was actually pretty awesome, especially her purple-streaked proto-goth hair, leading to today’s ten-years-later query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) is gonna go with Plastique because I’m sort of annoyed with what they’ve done with her lovely hair as XS, asking: Which Jessica Parker Kennedy DC character do you prefer: Plastique or XS?
