Top 5 Pink Super Characters

Welcome to this month’s Top 5 and I hope that wherever you are, it is starting to feel a little more like Fall.  In October, thoughts turn to Halloween, The NFL (all in pink), my brother-in-law Freddy’s birthday (SHOUT OUT!), and the Susan G. Komen Race For The Cure.  That’s right folks, it is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we are listing our Top Five favorite pink super-people.

 

5. Quentin Quire

 

 

 

For some reason, Quentin has always had an affinity for the color pink.  Whether it be his rebellious hairstyle or even his full-body spandex-looking outfit in Phoenix: Endsong, Quire wears pink and makes it look fierce.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

4. Star Sapphires

 

 

When you become a Green Lantern, you get a green costume.  Star Sapphires get pink ones.  They are driven and powered by love.  They are all pink and girly.  If an entire force of cosmically-powered, pink-clad women doesn’t make number 4 on this list, then I would look stupid.

 

 

 

 

 

 

3. Gambit

 

 

 

I’m tired of talking about Gambit.  His body covering (armor, chestplate, shirt?) is pink and his mutant power manifests with a pink glow.  Whether it be stealing, fighting, or romancing, Gambit is about as manly as they get.  He’s so secure in his masculinity, that the pink makes perfect sense here.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2. Atom Eve

 

 

Invincible’s lady and super-heroine Atom Eve is blessed with the unique power (unless you are Firestorm) to change matter from one thing into  anything else.  This is an incredible power to wield.  Most of the time, she dates Invincible and flies around.  The costume is pink and I do love Invincible though….

 

 

 

 

1. Nimrod

 

 

Mutant-killing, end time, sentinel robots are all kinds of scary.  The power to level an entire sub-culture of the planet Earth is in a Nimrod.  The fact that it’s pink is an interesting stylistic choice.

 

Note from the editor: In all seriousness, if you suffer from breast cancer, we wish you the best of luck in beating it. Keep fighting as hard as you can.  We hope that this post gives you a chuckle in the midst of your struggle.

  1. Fun post. I remember reading somewhere that pink used to be associated with warriors, as red military uniforms would fade over time to a pinkish hue. May all those fighting breast cancer let that warrior rise up inside of them and get the victory!
