When it comes to discussions in a nerdly vein, there are a few phrases and arguments that just make my eyes roll.  I hate arguments that some characters are “over-powered”, as though there aren’t different kinds and levels of of story to be told.  I loathe hearing people argue that certain shows or fictional folk don’t “deserve” to be as popular as they are, as though there’s a clear hierarchy and points awarded.  But perhaps the most heinous is the argument that the likes of Batman or Deadpool is “overexposed“, rather than seeing the cycle of creative folks trying to give audiences what they keep paying for over and over.  To that end, we arrive at to today’s ubiquitous query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) is once again providing no context, allowing you to bring your own to the party, asking: Batman or Deadpool?

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.
