Just voted, and while she isn't a pure soul, I must bow to you for your courage. The internet is full with fanatics who'll skin you alive just for saying Felicity Smoak isn't the absolute evil, so well done for doing the brave thing and propose her.
On a side note: I have interest in some comic books and superheroes, so i'm always glad to talk about some :-).
1. What bugs me about the hate she's receiving is less the hate itself and more of the sheer loathing levels. How is it possible to hate a fictional character that much? Even Joffrey Baratheon and Dolores Umbridge doesn't get the hate Felicity gets.
2. Since you like Superman, I thought maybe you like Super-girl too. Me and a friend had a conversation about Melissa Benoist's ability to make people curious about real-life villains/heroes. Do you have an historical figure whom you got curious about thank to Melissa?
