Anomaly Supplemental: Mary Sues and Strong Female Characters

In this episode of Anomaly Supplemental, KC and Sue do their best to cover a somewhat loaded topic. What's a "Mary Sue"? What's a "Strong Female Character"? Can the same character be both, or are they mutually exclusive? We talk about where the concept of "Mary Sue" in fan fiction, what is has morphed into, and some characters that are generally considered to be Mary Sues. But we also talk about what we feel makes a good, strong, well-developed character, and what "strong" really means in that sense. And of course, some of our favorite personal examples.  The episode carries an "explicit" tag for a little bit of profanity in some quotes.  Please see our show notes at for links to articles and other podcast episodes that we mention throughout.
