As a kid, I always kind of admired Acroyear of ‘The Micronauts.’  I couldn’t pronounce his name, and still really have no idea about how to do that, but his “noble alien warrior” schtick was compelling, presaging a number of similar folks in science fiction.  Lieutenant Worf, Teal’c of ‘Stargate: SG1’ and a number of other proud warrior guys owe him a debt, and even folks like Starfire and Zealot follow in his footsteps, leading to today’s honor-based query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) is kind of leaning towards Shadow Lass of the Legion of Super-Heroes, especially in her reboot-era Umbra phase, asking: Which alien warrior is the fiercest E.T. of them all?

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.
