Everybody’s Somebody’s Baby – Day Five

Okay, so we had the Top 100 Marvel and DC Characters List. I even went a little further, and showed you the NEXT hundred on the list. But what about those characters that were less supported? THEY have their fans, too, right? So this week, each day I’m going to take a look at some characters who made only ONE ballot – but were chosen FIRST on that ballot.

Enjoy!

Debrii – 10 points (1 first place vote)

Deborah Fields was a telekinetic who joined the New Warriors back when they were doing a reality show.

Luckily for Deborah, she did not rejoin the group when they started a new series after the first one was canceled, as the group was almost all killed during the battle that launched Marvel’s Civil War.

Currently, Debrii is a member of the Avengers Initiative.

Here is why Jeff Ramirez chose her #1…

I chose Debris as my #1 pick because she’s different, and she’s fun to watch and listen to (at least when she’s being written and drawn by Zeb Wells and Skottie Young). She basically floats and tosses around trash to fight crime and help people. That to me is original, and ecologically cool.

Another cool bonus is that she is a unique rarity in mainstream superhero comics. She’s a very believable super-powered black female character without looking like a amazon goddess. She keeps it real with the look of an every person, and the trash-talking rock-the-talk honesty of someone who knows the streets and uses that knowledge to protect others.

Thanks, Jeff!

I really enjoyed that incarnation of the New Warriors. It would be funny to see a reality tv style “Reunion Special” with Debris, the now godlike Nova, and perennial internet punching bag Penance.

This is one of the first characters to show up that I’ve never once read.

That would be amazing JG! Basically, anytime anyone makes fun of Penance’s current state, I find it amazing though. Seriously, what is that about?!
I liked Debri, but has she even had a speaking role (besides maybe one line) in anything other than that New Warriors mini (in which she didn’t even appear til midway through)?

Who??!

I liked the doofus that talked to germs better. Debrii had too much attitude. Rude for the sake of being rude doesn’t go too far with me. “Ho hum… another tough talking black chick.”

I have no idea who this is, but I can’t believe the week is over and still no Flippa Dippa.

[…] For more of Ramirez’s reasoning and a nice rundown of Debrii’s history so far, read the full article. […]

Is that New Warriors mini out in trade format?

Never heard of her, but based on Ramirez’s description, I already like her better than many of the top hundred vote getters.

Is that New Warriors mini out in trade format?

It is, and it’s a fun comic that was a nice surprise to me, I’d recommend it. Shame it was only set up so they could get killed in CW.

I don’t think it WAS set-up for them to be killed in Civil War.

I don’t think the two events were related.
