Cartoon Crushes: Earth's Mightiest Edition

I've thought the Wasp was a fun character ever since I first discovered her in the early 80s in the pages of Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars (my introduction to the Marvel Universe beyond the occasional issue of Spider-Man, FF, or Captain America I'd pick up before that point), but the version of her that appears on Disney XD's Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes cartoon has me completely swoony. Spunky, determined, funny, tough as nails when she needs to be... sure, she sometimes seems flighty (appropriate, maybe, given her powers and size), but she's clearly smarter than she lets on and serious when she needs to be. It's easy to see why even a stick-in-the-mud like Hank Pym likes having her around.






The wings, funky antennae, and only-in-cartoons hairstyle sure don't hurt, either.  Add in some hip glasses and a cardigan and...

But maybe I've said too much.
