This morning, I woke up angry due to a couple of dream-arguments that I had in my sleep, and thus feel a lot of aggression that needs to be worked out. Inexplicably frustrating, yes, but nothing throwing a good punch or two wouldn’t cure. Normally, the answer would be video-games, as an hour or so of living the life of Franklin Clinton or nuking Belial usually does the trick and brings me back to myself but a preponderance of teens having a sleepover have put the kibosh on such activities. Thus, I’ve been re-reading Marvel Superheroes Contest of Champions, a story which pioneered the massive crossover shmageggi, and also created the rules for all the crossovers that followed:
1) Establish massive threat that can’t be defeated by punching.
2) Defeat it by punching.
3) Lather, rinse, repeat.
Still, as cruel as it is, I have to admit it was satisfying to see Superboy-Prime cracked in the head by a coalition of Flashes, which leads us to today’s cartoon-violent question…
The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) generally likes to avoid negativity, but I’m positive that it would be a lot of fun to deck Kai Winn of the Bajoran Temple, asking: What fictional (and only fictional) character do you feel most deserves to be on the receiving end of a good punch?
