I Need a Hero

When I was eight years old, I had an excellent Wonder Woman costume that I would wear for nearly every formal occasion.  At one point I even started to believe that my wrist cuffs had special powers.  Basically, I came to believe I was a superhero who moonlighted as a second grade student.  I was thinking about this the other day when one of the librarians here told me about an article highlighting 20 heroic librarians.  I have to admit that I have never seen the movie The Librarian (for shame) but the list includes some pretty awesome literary and movie characters that play librarian by day, world protectors by night.  If I had to pick a favorite, it would be Giles from Buffy the Vampire Slayer.  Nothing makes a library cooler than a collection of books about the occult.  Especially if you have already read Kardashian Konfidential and you need a spell to get four hours of your life back.

[editor’s note: Rex Libris is one awesome librarian dude, I recommend the comics.]
