1.- What is your real name and nickname?
Margaret Kimberly Rhiordan. My 'superhero' name is Brahma.
I was named that by my friend, Armada, who said I was "stronger than a Brahma Bull" on the day we met.
2.- Interesting, what is your current age?
I'm currently 20 years old. I am the youngest member of my superhero group, The StarBrats.
3.- What is your favorite food?
Raspberry jelly filled, powdered donuts!
4.- And your favorite drink?
Pink lemonade is delicious, as long as it doesn't have those gritty, disgusting bits of 'real lemon' in it! That SO does NOT make it better!
5.-Confession time, Who is your lover?
I, um... I don't HAVE one. I mean, I ain't a virgin, or nothin'! (technically.) But, it's kinda hard to attract a guy when you're as big and brawny-lookin' as me. There's a few girls who like me, I guess, but, I don't, um, swing that way, though.
6.- Have you kissed anyone yet?
I've kissed a couple of guys... back in high school. I'm not giving you any names, though!
7.- Do you have a childhood sweetheart?
When I was younger, I had a huge crush on a friend named Razorblade. (NOT his real name, duh.) He was the leader of the first superhero team I belonged to when i was a teenager - The Wyld Angels. I always thought he was so kick-ass! It's too bad he wound up going all evil. That was the reason The Angels broke up, and that I moved out here to California with my mom and sister.
8.- Who is your favorite author?
I was really big into Poppy Z. Brite when I was younger. That, and Laurel K. Hamilton. I was a HUGE fan of the Anita Blake series of books, but, I guess I grew out of that. Nowadays, I barely have time to read anything other than news reports and the occasional SHORT story in an anthology before some life-threatening emergency pops up.
9.- What is your biggest fear?
Spiders are ICKY!!
10.- Any siblings?
I have one younger sister - Daisy. I guess, technically, after finding out a secret or two about my heritage that Daisy is my HALF-sister, but, honestly, I think all that "half-sibling' stuff is crap. Family is family if the love is there, and I love my little sister.
11.- Who is your worst enemy?
Well, I'm a superhero, y'know, so, I have a lot of enemies. I don't really have one that's specifically MINE, as most of them have beef with my TEAM, not me, personally. Still, if I had to pick one, I'd go with this weird giant were-spider girl named "Arachnee". I mean, she's technically not EEEEVILLL, but, she's really pretty loopy after her mutation. and boy, is she UGLY!
Still, I think that's just more my own fear of spiders talking than anything else.
12.- Huh, okay. Who is your best friend?
My best friend is Vanessa Gibson, aka 'Armada'. She's a fellow superhero and StarBrat. She was one of the Wyld Angels with me, back in the day. We've been besties for almost 7 years, now. She's one of the coolest people that I've ever met.
13.- What would you do if you meet your creator?
What? Y'mean like GOD? Um, no thanks. That would mean I'm dead, and I have SO much I wanna do before I die! Still, I have a LOTTA questions about why there's so many superhumans in the world. And so much evilness. And about parallel universes... Oh man!
14.- What do you want to be when you're grown up?
Um, if you'd asked me that 3 years ago, I'd have said police officer. Of course, now, seeing what cops have to deal with in terms of regular crime and super-crime... I dunno. One upon a time, I really wanted to be an actress or a model, but, with my body being what it is now, I think 'superhero' is really the only thing I CAN do. I just hafta find some way to make it pay, so I can handle my bills... especially my clothing bill! You got NO idea how expensive custom clothes are in my size, and how SICK I am of running around in sweat pants and oversized jerseys! You just can't find too many pretty things in my size off the rack!
15.- What is your worst nightmare?
Okay, that's not true. Well, yes it IS, but, it's also not the ONLY nightmare. I'm afraid of losing myself. My powers come with a-- healing? No. 'REGENERATION' factor. That is, if I get really seriously hurt - like, gutted, or lose a limb or a whole lotta blood, my powers heal me and prettymuch make me a whole new body. A DIFFERENT body every time. I look in the mirror and I can't recognize the woman staring back at me. My real self - my original self - was pale and freckled and redheaded. I looked like my mom. When I regenerate, I could be a blue-eyed blonde or a brown eyed brunette, or even look like a whole 'nother RACE. That, of course sets the Millennials off. I have no control over it, but, apparently, when I happen to change into anything other than a white girl, it's "problematic' for certain people. What's 'problematic' for ME is that sometimes I don't know who Maggie Rhiordan is anymore. I mean, I'm still me. My personality is still the same. It's not like I develop any weird, overwrought accents or anything. i can always understand that my reflection is "me" by the 6-foot-8 body with the same, i guess, 'mystical' tatts... even they change color with each transformation. But it's still some stranger's face until I get used to it.
ANOTHER fear is that I'll live forever. Yeah. That's a FEAR!
I don't wanna be that girl who lives on and on while everyone and everything I love changes, withers and dies. Every time I hear about some superhero with a healing or regeneration factor, they're prettymuch UNKILLABLE. But, being around that long rots your brain. i don't wanna be some crazy-brained immortal whacko!
16.-What is your lifelong dream?
To eventually bring peace to the world. That's why I got into being a superhero. I don't HAVE to go out and risk life and limb to 'Save The Day'. Nobody does. Great Power/Great Responsibility is just a tagline from a comic book. It seems a lot of superheroes wanna do it just so they can get away with punching people. Don't get me wrong. I'm my team's muscle, and I will admit that I DO like to "smash". Wait, maybe i should rephrase that before some perv takes it the wrong way.
Being superstrong is, like, intoxicating. But, destruction is EASY. At the end of the day, the job of a superhero is to make their territory, if not the WORLD, SAFE.
I wanna make it so that people with powers stop using them to hurt people and wreck things and steal. I wanna make it so that evil aliens stop trying to take over the planet or destroy our species, and, on the other side of things, make it so that any GOOD aliens will be welcomed here to share knowledge, instead of being shot at on first sight because they look different than us. I just wanna eventually save the world and have it STAY saved. Not even to make, like, a better tomorrow for the KIDS, but, to make a better TODAY for everybody!
17.-What would you do if your dream come true?
Start working on changing people's... and, y'know, HOLLYWOOD's perceptions about beauty and what people can and cannot do and BE, based on how they look.
18.-Okay, where is your favorite place to relax?
Okay, you're gonna think this is crazy, but - The Comic Book shop! No, seriously! Like, I'm not even a comic book geek or nothin', but, when i first got into the superhero thing at 13, most of the guys in The Wyld Angels WERE!
Razorblade and Ramjet and Blacktop would go to the comic shop on Wednesdays and I would tag along. Yeah, i admit that I'm real girly (despite my size), and I would read love manga and old romance comics and Archie stuff, while they pored through Batman and Spidey and stuff. Eventually, I let them talk me into reading all that stuff and I found that it was great! Not necessarily for the entertainment factor, but, for the sheer imagination of the writing. Through those comics, I found new ways to use my superstrength. Believe it or not, some of that pseudo-science in those books can and will work in real life if you have the superpowers to back it up! I learned tricks and psyche-outs that actually worked on some of the dumber real life villains. I learned to recognize some of the scams that the villains were running! Weirdly enough, nobody thinks that actual superheroes READ superhero comics!
It's just like being a cop or a lawyer and watching CSI or Perry Mason! Sure, there's inconsistencies and stuff that's just plain STUPID, but, there's some nuggets of pure gold in there that I have found useful in what I do. Also, reading that stuff relaxes and de-stresses me after a long adventure. Pluswise, if ANYBODY an 'appreciate' sexiness and beauty in a girl like me, it's comics nerds. I'll admit, i DO like the attention. According to the Almighty Internet, that makes me a "fake geek girl", or some crap, but, whatever. I dare ANYBODY to say that to my face!
19.-Last Question, what do you do most of the time?
I like to type and play piano and drums. Notsomuch for the sake of the music, but, it helps keep my dexterity up, and gauge my strength. I have to hold back. A LOT. when I am around normal, non-powered people. I don't wanna be some stereotypical, superpowered lumbering oaf, right? Armada was the one who got me into that stuff. I broke a LOT of expensive things when I was young and just coming into my powers.
20.-Done! Now tag some people!
I'm not gonna tag anyone, as it seems that less and less folks are into doing these things these days.
If you dig this and wanna try, be my guest, and feel free to tell 'em Xailenrath sent ya!
