Q&A 242: Who would a favorite comic book character fangirl/boy over?

In Q & A, a weekly feature of Fantastic Fangirls, we ask our staff to tackle a simple question — then open the floor to comments.

Think of your favorite comic book character. Who would they fangirl/boy over?


Zoë Washburne, of Serenity, fangirls over Starbuck, of the newer Battlestar Galactica.

Pretty perfect, right?


As a hardcore BSG fan, I think Gabby’s answer is perfect.

For me, I would say Vesper Grey from the web comic Plume….

…would totally fangirl over Beatrix Kiddo a.k.a “The Bride” from Kill Bill.


I have a lot of favorite comic characters right now. But a shout out to one who’s not around anymore, Annabelle Riggs, who I imagine would simultaneously fangirl Indiana Jones and Janice Covington, the character from a Xena: Warrior Princess episode who was an Indy homage.

I know I answer Xena a lot, but you have to admit, the intersection of lesbian pop culture and archaeology is pretty perfect for Dr. Riggs.


So what about you? Who would your favorite comic book character fangirl/boy over?
