For some reason, there are a lot of rock ‘n roll types who end up starring in comics: KISS. Jane Wiedlin. Billy Ray Cyrus. Nightcat. The pop star superhero is a powerful archetype, one that gave us Dazzler and Cannonball’s mutant ex-girlfriend Lila. The crossover between superhero costume and stage gear for a rocker is a fine line, especially when you remember that Elvis based his iconic jumpsuit (and his haircut) on Captain Marvel, Junior, leading to today’s screwed-down hairdo query…
The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) thinks that David Bowie or Prince, or ideally, both together, would be a great idea, asking: Which singing sensation would make the best Pop Star Superhero?
Bowie and Prince are strong contenders, but Michael Jackson already was a super hero (and a Transformer).
She is the warrior!!
