One More Thing: Which cartoon character/superhero do you wish was real?

I would love to be friends with a real-life Lisa Simpson. She’s always the smartest person in the room, fights for gender equality and never gives up hope no matter how crazy her family life gets, and it does get crazy with Homer and Bart involved.
Gray Morris, Sicklerville

Scooby-Doo. He’s probably an awesome hang – tons of true crime stories, witty humor and he can smash triple decker hoagies. Plus, he’s a real good boy.
Matt Carlyse, Collingswood

Storm from Marvel Comics because she controls the weather. Maybe she could slow climate change?
Rachel Payne, Hainesport

I was always fascinated with the Jetsons and all their futuristic, household gadgets. I really wish the Jetsons were real and we had some of that technology today – especially a flying car to deal with New Jersey traffic!
Wendy Marano, Maple Shade

What the world needs right now is a real-life Green Arrow, the disillusioned former billionaire playboy who realizes all the wrongs that have been done to exploit people by the wealthy. He is basically Robin Hood.
Brandon Sirota, Glassboro

Superman is the obvious choice because he has the most useful skills of any superhero: super speed, the ability to fly and X-ray vision.
Emily Brown, Burlington

Iron Man (Tony Stark) is a regular guy in the sense that he was not born with superpowers, but he uses his vast wealth and scientific prowess to positively impact the world. At the end of the day, his heart is in the right place.
Denise Soto, Hamilton

Joy from “Inside Out” – she is a burst of positive energy and sees the tough moments as hiccups on the road to greatness. She comes to understand that to be truly happy you need all the other emotions. Without sadness, fear or anger, joy would have no meaning. Her optimistic positivity and true friendship is something we could all use a little more of.
Mary Cruz, Marlton

Underdog should be real. He doesn’t have exotic powers but he always shows up to save the day. Don’t we all just feel like we wake up every day with the world against us. Then we just get on with it anyway.
Andy Sodicoff, Cherry Hill

Marvel’s Black Widow would be an amazing real-life hero because she doesn’t let the past dictate her future, she cares about what’s on the inside, not the outside and she’s not focused on fame and fortune. She only cares about doing what’s right.
Stefanie Jeffreys, Marlton

Wonder Woman! I’ve had a Wonder Woman keychainor 20 years as a little symbol of strength and inspiration.
Pam Collins, Mt. Laurel
