The Comic Explosion Book Tag!


Hey, guys! With the recent release of Wonder Woman, there's been a ton of comic book and superhero buzz around the community. So I thought today would be the best time to do this quick and fun tag combining books with superheroes! I hope y'all enjoy <3

SIDEKICK: BEST SUPPORTING CHARACTER

Credit to Merwild on DeviantArt. Go check out her SoC art; it's incredible!
OF COURSE THE FIRST QUESTION'S THE HARDEST. There are so many amazing options to choose from. But I thiiiiiink I'll have to go with Wylan van Eck of the Six of Crows duology. There wasn't a lot I liked about SoC, but Wylan was a diamond in the rough.

A very few very worthy runners-up:

Boyboy (City of Saints and Thieves) - Noah + Ronan (The Raven King) - Literally Every Single Character, I Kid You Not (Prince Lestat and the Realms of Atlantis) - Toby (It Looks Like This)

KRYPTONITE: YOUR LEAST FAVORITE TROPE

UGH THERE ARE SO MANY HORRIBLE ONES. Maaaaaybe "damsel in distress needs big strong man to save her"? But "special snowflake heroine is the oNlY oNe!!!!! who can save the day," "brooding bad boy," and "heterosexuality" are close behind.

COSTUME CHANGE: BEST COVER CHANGE


The Tale of the Body Thief by Anne Rice is the first that comes to mind. Memnoch the Devil is a close second, though.

DAILY PLANET: YOUR DREAM FICTIONAL OCCUPATION



I'd love to be an assassin in Terry Pratchett's Discworld series!

JUSTICE LEAGUE: BEST SQUAD


You say the Gangsey or Kaz's squad, and I say to think again, Martha.

SUPER VILLAIN: BEST ANTIHERO

Again, credit to Merwild!
OH MY GOD. I'm such a sucker for antiheroes and read so many of them. But I guess if I HAD to pick one, I'd have to go with everyone's favorite Barrel bastard: Kaz Brekker.

VERY WORTHY RUNNERS-UP:

Baz (Carry On) - Bartimaeus (The Amulet of Samarkand) - Lestat de Lioncourt (The Vampire Lestat)

THE BATCAVE: FICTIONAL CHARACTER'S HOME YOU'D LIKE TO LIVE IN





Erebor, of course. What other answer is there?

Spoiler: none. 

TRAINING MONTAGE: BEST CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT



THIS BEAN RIGHT HERE.

  3. Yes to Draco Malfoy and Kaz Brekker! They're such great and detailed characters. I would love to live at Hogwarts (duh), but Rivendell doesn't look too bad either!
