I’ve spent the last few days poring over the adventures of the Justice League(s) and I can tell you one thing:  Lots of those guys have wings.  Weirdly, if it were a list of X-Men, I’d be knee-deep in talons, claws and blades, which may or may not epitomize the differences between the Big Two publishers.  Still, if you were to ask me if I wanted wings or claws, I wouldn’t hesitate to learn how to fly, as slashing doesn’t hold the same sort of appeal for me that soaring through the heavens does.  Of course, I’m also the guy who loves a hero with a sword, even though they never get to do anything because maiming by the heroes is frowned on, leading to today’s eagle-inspired query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) reminds Faithful Spoilerites that “Both” is not a valid response in this case, regardless of New 52 Hawkman, asking: Wings or Claws?


About Author

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.

    Claws. Wings won’t help you open the mail or scratch an itch, and claws won’t get in the way of sitting down or walking through doorways.
