As franchises go, Super Sentai and the Legion of Super-Heroes have a lot in common: Tons of characters, reboots as necessary, my utter adoration.  Really, the only major question when considering whether to be Power Ranger or Legionnaire is the argument between a protective helmet and a flight ring.  Each team has endless places where one could fit in, from being the smart one to the mean one to the snarky womanizer who needs to calm down.  (Looking at you Dirk Morgna and/or Yuki Gai.)  Both teams have a lot going for them for the potential superhero member, leading to today’s recruiting query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) loves the 30th Century, but feels that the only fat Sentai member gets treated better than the only fat Legionnaire, which makes my decision for me, asking: Which would you rather be: Power Ranger or Legionnaire?

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.

    Probably Power Ranger, or rather some more obscure Sentai. Legion members seem to get killed or lost in space/time on regular basis.
