Always nice to run into other Wild Card fans online! This is such a seriously underrated series of books. I know that it has gone through a couple of dips in quality over the years, but I've always found myself coming back for more. As much as I like Croyd, I would say that my favorite character in the books is Mark Meadows. He starts out as such an unassuming and peace loving hippie type character, but can turn into some of the most powerful superheroes in the Wild Cards universe by ingesting certain chemical mixtures. I can't remember if it is ever explained what it is that causes the transformation, but I found it really neat that some of the most epic superheroes in the books are actually just different personalities of the least likely person.
What is the coolest "superhero" type character you've ever come across in a novel (not comic books)
