So, a bunch of people on the Innernets have a lot of ideas about who Harley Quinn’s perfect man is.  Most of them involve some sort of emotionally abusive clown-faced dude (not even always The Joker), but a few geniuses seem to think that Harley’s off-the-wall madness would meld well with the fourth-wall breaking joie de vivre of Wade “Deadpool” Wilson.  This potential power couple seems like a horrific idea to me (although their costumes do go well together) but that may also be the fact that I think ‘Pool’s perfect woman is Vanessa, and the afterlife has confirmed this.  Regardless, what I believe isn’t always what the magical intarweb folk believe, leading us to today’s match-making query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) would still like to see Rick from ‘The Walking Dead’ and Robin Scherbatsky from ‘How I Met Your Mother’ meet up for a lovely evening of canned spaghetti and gun repair, asking: What two characters from anywhere in fiction would make the perfect potential power couple?

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. Man, that’s a really wide-open question… Hard to pick one idea

    Harry Dresden and Buffy Summers would be an interesting match.

    How about Gandalf and Professor X?

    Jeannie and Samantha Stephens?

    I don’t know. I could spend the rest of the day coming up with these, they’re fun!
