Every organization has its pluses and minuses.  In my current job, I don’t have the endless parade of corrupt, stupid or openly malicious jerks that plagued me in the call-center, but I do occasionally have to brush past a comment that is insensitive or politically offensive.  This brings to mind important questions about the super-teams we all love somehow, perhaps.  Obviously, being a member of the JLA would suck, as nobody outside the core seven get to stick around for long, and even some of the founders are considered less important than Superman, Wonder Woman and whatsisname.  The Teen Titans are fun, bright and happy, but 60% of their membership has been brutally murdered.  And while it might be fun to be an X-Man, I don’t have the energy to angst 24/7, and I would snicker every time Wolverine said ‘aboat.’  In short, choosing which super-team where you belong to is a proposition fraught with peril, which leads us to today’s draft-pick query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) would obviously choose The Justice Friends, because they have a huge couch and none of them have the “being brutally murdered” problem that the Legion and Titans do, asking: Which super-team in all of infinity is the one team where you belong?

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.

    Probably Akibarangers. Worst thing I’d have to face are goons from “Blatantly Evil Marketing Firm”. I can handle those already and I get to wear Sentai uniform and live in one of the coolest places on earth as a bonus.
