While I’m not always a big fan of the idea of role models, especially fictional ones, there are a few imaginary folks whose opinions, were they real, would carry a lot of weight with me: Captain America for one, Garnet of the Crystal Gems for another, as well as Saturn Girl of the Legion of Super-Heroes.  I’d even enjoy getting the thumbs up from CW Supergirl, a clean-cut, good-natured, hopeful superhero of the type they don’t make often enough anymore.  Her seal of approval would carry a lot of weight with me, leading to today’s aspirational query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) has the problem where a lot of my fave-raves, like Han Solo and Iron Man, are really not the kind of people one should seek approbation from,  asking: What fictional character’s seal of approval would mean the most to you, personally?

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.
