With the success of Ant-Man and TV’s The Atom (whose last appearances are coming soon to an Arrow near you), tiny superheroes are in the spotlight again.  Sadly, their larger-than-life counterparts, the super-giants, seem to be getting something of a short shrift, with the possible exception of the final boss fight of a Super Sentai/Power Rangers episode.  Black Goliath was mercilessly punked out and murdered during ‘Civil War’, Stature de-powered and returned to a supporting role in her dad’s adventures and even Colossal Boy won’t be back til the Legion is.  It hardly seems fair that the little guys are getting all the love, which leads us to today’s brobdingnagian query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) really enjoyed it when Janet Van Dyne was a major player in the all-ages ‘Marvel Adventures’ title as Giant-Woman, asking: Who’s the coolest super-giant of all?

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. You got him right there, Ultraman (hard to choose specific one) is the best and one of the first super heroes I’ve even seen as a kid. Shoutouts to Jet Jaguar and Astro Guy, who are also pretty much Ultramen.
