Jason Mewes Lists The 3 Best And 3 Worst DC Characters
- Published: 07 October 2019
- Like all comic book universes, DC Comics is made up of a sprawling canon of fan-favorites and total busts.
On one hand, you've got your holy trinity of Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman. On the other hand, you've got the likes of Pandora, Azrael, or Jason Todd as Robin. Everyone has their favorites, their worsts and firsts but what about lifelong comics fan and comic actor Jason Mewes?
We had the opportunity to speak with Mewes aka Jay, of Jay and Silent Bob fame while he was promoting his film Madness in the Method, which he stars in and directed as his debut feature behind the camera.
Knowing that he knows his stuff when it comes to comic books, we asked him for his take on the three best and three worst characters DC Comics has to offer.
"If we're going powerhouses, I have my favorites, but again I wouldn't say they're the strongest. But I would have to say for a team I would say Batman, Superman, and Martian Manhunter. Because Martian Manhunter, to me, has just as much power and such as Superman. He does have weaknesses. But he can turn intangible and invisible and such.
Mewes was clear that with his selection of favorites, he mostly went for raw strength over scrappy personality, and that he might personally prefer some characters who don't hit quite so hard.
"I love Deadshot too as a character. Deadshot's one of my favorite characters. And yeah, and Vigilante, but they're not very, you know…"
After selecting his top three, Mewes had a surprising amount of trouble getting into the DC Comics characters he likes least. In general, the real-life Jay doesn't seem to dislike much of anything. When it comes to fandom, he's like a living embodiment of that one song from The LEGO Movie.
"I would say worse characters... I mean I don't think there is worse characters. I mean again it’s… they're all sort of awesome."
But then, in a eureka moment, he started seeing double, and found two of his worsts in one shot. Keep watching the video to see how Jason Mewes lists the 3 best and 3 worst DC characters!
