I’m an editorial intern here at ComicsVerse, a volunteer English language teacher, and co-host/organizer of two comic book clubs. I once joined a roller derby team for 20 minutes before they had to take me to the hospital. My hobbies include playing the ukulele, picking out names for my future cats, and practicing my magical girl transformation.

What is your favorite comic book and why?

I can’t pick just one! X-Men was my first love and gateway drug into comics— “God Loves Man Kills” and Remender and Opena’s Uncanny X-Force are two of my all-time favorites. Then Sandman showed me the versatility and depth of comics as a medium. One of my current favorites is Ms. Marvel—Kamala’s journey in becoming Ms. Marvel gives me life and she’s the hero we all need.

If you could have one superpower what would it be?

If I could choose one superpower, I’d pick teleportation. If I was given a superpower based on who I am as a person, it would the power to jinx things.

What comics make you happy?

Ms. Marvel and anything X-Men make me the happiest, of course. Including manga, Fruits Basket is pretty much my favorite thing that exists. I’m also super stoked that I can now enjoy Steven Universe and Over the Garden Wall in comic book form!

Nightcrawler, Kamala Khan, and Alana from Saga.

Which words or phrases do you most overuse?

Okidoki, YOOOOO!, samesies. I’m the worst.

Which comic book character would you most easily fall in love with?

Oh, Nightcrawler for sure. And maybe Prince Robot IV from Saga because I have a soft spot for sympathetic villains and I make bad choices.

Which creator talent would you most like to have?

I would love to have Kieron Gillen’s mastery of puns.

The Marvel universe. See above.

The one where they retconned Scarlet Witch’s and Quicksilver’s mutant heritage and made them Inhumans. Have they undone that one yet?

Which comic book character do you think should die a permanent non-comic book death?

I can’t think of anyone I hate enough that I’d want to see dead. I love to hate em.

What is your personal motto?

One that I borrowed from Nightcrawler: “I learned very early on that I must either accept what I am, or go mad. And though I am now occasionally crazy, I am not insane.”
