In this episode of Anomaly Supplemental, KC and Sue do their best to cover a somewhat loaded topic. What's a "Mary Sue"? What's a "Strong Female Character"? Can the same character be both, or are they mutually exclusive? We talk about where the concept of "Mary Sue" in fan fiction, what is has morphed into, and some characters that are generally considered to be Mary Sues. But we also talk about what we feel makes a good, strong, well-developed character, and what "strong" really means in that sense. And of course, some of our favorite personal examples.  The episode carries an "explicit" tag for a little bit of profanity in some quotes.  Please see our show notes at AnomalyPodcast.com for links to articles and other podcast episodes that we mention throughout.

Sue and KC have a long philosophical chat about good versus evil and whether superheroes should be responsible for property damage. Though neither of us grew up comic book readers, we discuss the influence of superheroes like Batman, Superman, the Avengers, the X-Men, Spiderman and so on; we also bring up superhero-inspired projects like The Incredibles, Hulu's The Awesomes, and Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog. Brief warning: while some of the spoilers we mention are a few decades old, there are spoilers for newer properties like Irredeemable.

Ten months in the making, it is finally here! Our Halloween 2012 episode! As explained at the start of the podcast, the scheduling of this episode was derailed a bit by Hurricane/Superstorm Sandy, and holidays, and moving, etc. And since it was more important to try to keep new episodes on schedule, the editing of this episode fell by the wayside. But the wait is over!

As usual, KC and I talk about our favorite lines, characters, scenes, and supernatural creatures in the film. We also ponder Ghostbusters II, complain about the state of commercially-available Halloween costumes, praise the cultural pervasiveness of this franchise, and discuss the state of comedy genre films.  This episode carries an explicit tag for some mild swearing in audio clips used.
