Dear Internet Best of Lists,

We are officially nominating Kenny of USM for best Supporting character of ‘08. I’m sorry all of Blue Beetle’s supporting characters. (I would normally link a youtube video to a quality portrayal of Hispanic families, but I can’t think of any.) I know you are well written and unique, but Kong is the anti-Geldoff in regards to being awesome.
