What is your favorite candy?

My favorite candy would probably be skittles, various delicious flavors packed into colorful and bite-sized candies for minimum mess and easy eat-ability.

What is your favorite holiday/time of year/season and why?

Fall is my absolute favorite, the air is crisp and clean, the sun still shines and the mountains look like they’re on fire. The harvest season ushers in the big holidays where everyone spends time with friends and family. Halloween is my favorite holiday, I enjoy dressing up and binging on candy, but I also really appreciate the origins of the holiday and believe it’s important to recognize and appreciate our ancestry and the loved ones who came before us.

Who is your favorite super hero and why?

Martian Manhunter, he is one of the most underrated super heroes and also one of the most powerful in the DC universe. J’onn was one of the original founders of the justice league and his powers rival that of Superman’s. He is the last of his kind and is haunted by the great loss of his family and planet, but he remains one of the strongest moral compasses in the league. He can read minds and sees every evil thought in everyone, but chooses to see the good in others. While all the other heroes spend time on earth, J’onn quietly keeps watch and keeps everything running at the Watchtower. He is crazy powerful but kind and endearingly socially awkward. He should have gotten his spotlight in the movies because he is an awesome super hero.
