It’s Christmas Eve at Major Spoilers!  Happy holidays and all like that!  it is my wife’s assessment that Loki of the MCU is not nearly the bad guy that people make him out to be.  (This belief is only partially based on the fact that Tom Hiddlepants is one of her celebrity crushes.)  But, regardless of the reason, she believes that he should go from naughty to nice on Father Christmas’ notorious list, and is looking forward to his solo series making that happen.  For my money, you could do worse, but I’d prefer to see the mysterious spy called YoSaffBridge from ‘Firefly’ turn to the side of the angels, for reasons very similar to my wife’s crush on Loki, leading to today’s face-turning query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) would vote for literally anybody but Doctor Doom, asking: What fictional character most deserves to go from naughty to nice list?

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.

    Magneto. For the most part, he’s never done anything a country and their leaders with lots of military power hasn’t been done (without repercussions on the winning side) to ensure the safety of his people and he’s done it for more noble reasons than most. Just ditch the part where he employs pure psychos and he’s a good guy.
