As is my habit now, I spent my morning scouring the internet for whatever entertaining images would make for the next installment of Ten Things. The most fruitful was a search for “superheroes with capes” which led me to wonder whose shoulder-rug reigns supreme. (The answer will surprise you!) It also made me think about the time Otter Disaster pointed out that, at Marvel Comics at least, the capes are usually the purview of the bad guys (think Doctor Doom, Mysterio, The Mandarin, and Magneto). One of the only things that the extremely genre-savvy Edna Mode ever said that I don’t agree with was her stance on this particular superhero activity, regardless of Syndrome’s karmic justice, leading us to today’s query that flaps in the night
The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) has always thought that it’s one of the most iconic parts of superhero-dom, and every team can use a cape-guy, asking: Cape or No Cape?
