A couple of years ago, one of those periodic nerd discussions erupted, leading to a strange realization: My favorite super (meaning “one whose adventures I am most wanting to see more of”) right now seems to be a tie between CW’s Supergirl and Garnet from ‘Steven Universe.’  I really enjoy the outlook of both characters, the performances of the actors involved, and both heroes’ gradual evolution, something that is often missing in modern comic books.  Of course, because of my work at Major Spoilers and my tendency to just randomly term-search for new superhero types, that list changes a lot, as I imagine yours do as well, leading to today’s entirely subjective query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) will also brook no silliness as to whether Garnet, who has super-powers, a costume, a mask and whose secret identity was a minor focus of the entire first season, counts as a superhero, asking: Which character is your favorite super RIGHT THIS INSTANT?


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.

    The “right this instant” during the current state of the world means that I’m feeling fairly removed from any attachment to print comics super characters.
