Share a hypothetical with me: you have successfully conceived, your future spawn seems healthy and is growing by the day, and you have room for three posters in what will become the nursery—say because the rest of the room is filled with your Star Wars crap or something. Now, you don't know the sex yet (that's not till week 20), but you find you can't help planning things a little early for each circumstance in the back of your mind. So I ask you, which three comic book characters do you choose to hold up as good examples for your pending brood?
My choices for a boy:
- Peter Parker: Integrity, Responsibility, Service
- Bruce Wayne: Dedication, Charity, Determination
- Amadeus Cho: Intelligence, Friendship, Loyalty
My choices for a girl:
- Cassandra Cain: Independence, Dedication, Courage
- Carol Danvers: Resilience, Strength, Responsibility
- Renee Montoya: Inquisitiveness, Adaptability, Determination
Of the above images, some I care for more than others. The Spidey and Amadeus images I pretty much picked at random. The Cass Cain one I picked simply because I wanted one that showed her face at least partially, but there have been so many beautiful Cassandra Cain Batgirl covers by James Jean that it'd be hard to choose just one. The Batman, Captain Marvel, and Question images are all pieces of art that I'm a big fan of.
Also, and if you're curious, the list of my runner-up selections are in the spoiler box.
So that's my plan, what's yours? Share your own nursery poster characters in a reply, and if you have specific images, even better! And of course there's no need to match the sex of the child to the sexes of the selections, I just wanted to.
PS: For me, this is not actually hypothetical. :)
PSS: The new Captain Marvel image would be especially meaningful since, well, this has become a meaningful year, which is why it would win out over Wonder Woman or Power Girl who I think of as similar archetypes.
