Green Lantern has a ring.  Savant has her Seven-League Boots.  Doctor Fate has a helmet.  The use of super-accessories has a long comic tradition, ranging from The 3-D Man’s glasses to Cliff Secord’s stolen backpack, and the type of accessory can say a lot about the hero who uses it.  The Gokaiger’s cell-phone style morphers mark them as young millenials with a lot to say, while Winged Victory’s magic necklace is a literal moment of drawing her battle-sword.  Heck, there’s even a few magic belt-buckles out there (We miss you, Captain Thunder!), leading to today’s super-enhanced query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) has always thought that a power gauntlet like Fred Savage wanted in ‘The Wizard’ would be SOOOOO bad, asking: Which type of super-accessories would you choose for your new superhero persona?

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. I need some cool gauntlets, and a cape is a must. I know they are impractical, but that’s why supers operate on the rule of cool.
