Fuzzy Heroes

One of my running topics on Unqualified Offerings and The Art of the Possible in the last year or so has been animal welfare and the possibility that “animal rights” of various sorts may exist. So I was amused to see, via Comics Worth Reading, that PETA’s blog has a new entry on the “Top 10 Animal-Friendly Superheroes.” As Johanna notes on CWR, the choices “indicate a real familiarity with the source material.” I find myself asking, did they leave anyone out? and the only answer I get is, “Maybe Vixen.” Back in the 1970s, there was an issue of Daredevil where he killed a giant bat with a broken piece of billy club, but he felt bad about it. No lie, he swore vengeance on his opponent for forcing him to kill a giant bat.
