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.
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.
