Q.What superhero is your alter-ego?
The problem here is that I'm a total comics geek so the choices, they are so broad!
But if I have to choose, I'll choose Gertrude York from Marvel's The Runaways. The comic's about a group of teenagers who discover their parents are supervillains. So they, yes, runaway and decide to try to defeat their parents and save the world.
Above are the Runaways in their original formation, and that's Gert at the back with the purple hair. She's the only one of the group without any actual superpowers, but she's totally smart, incredibly sarcastic, and all around awesome. Also she ends up with a pet dinosaur (to the left there) called Old Lace. I freaking love her for being incredibly awesome and holding her own in the face of all these crazy mutant powers.
If you haven't checked out The Runaways, do so! The first few runs are really, really good. It falls off a little after Joss (yep, Joss Whedon wrote some) left, but the Brian K Vaughn and Joss issues are amazing.

“What is your favorite type of candy?”
You mean other than just all chocolate ever? Around Halloween, I start really loving those little boxes of Junior Mints and Dots that people give out. The size is just perfect, and they're wonderful. Other than that, I totally love any type of gummy candy - gummi bears, gummi sharks, gummi worms, sour patch kids, Swedish fish, those little gummi coke bottles? Yum. Definitely my favourite.
Happy Weekend to all of you! Definitely link me to your answers so I can check them out and say hello!
