After yesterday’s discussion of the merits of red-caped male superhumans, it behooves us to address their red-blue-and-gold distaff counterparts.  One has powers from an ancient civilization, the other from an alien race.  Both have had multiple retcons in their back story and most recently have had their parentage suddenly changed for reasons uncertain.  They also share military affiliations in their past, careers in journalism and spycraft, and both of their movies are better than certain factions of Internet opiners would have you believe, leading to today’s evil-punching query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) once again isn’t necessarily asking about a fight, but figures if they were to punch it out, it’d be spectacular, asking: Wonder Woman or Captain Marvel?

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.


  1. Daniel Langsdale on

    I’m wondering if we’ll get a MCU version of Binary at some point.

    Oh, and Captain Marvel because she is by far the more relatable character of the two, what with having at least some measure of humanity in her backstory.

  2. knee-jerk reaction, Wonder Woman. DC’s never had a good grasp on what WW’s origin should be, but all their attempts have always intrigued me. whether it’s the straightforward “emissary of peace going forth and doing some good” or the “fully-formed platonic ideal forced to reconcile herself with the real world and all its shades of gray” or the “actually a demigod all this time and gets roped into all the crazy pantheon family drama,” i’m always more drawn to WW’s stories.
