Why people with capes are better than you.

Capes vs The Anti-cape.
My brother and I have this argument frequently.
I am, of course, pro-cape.
All the best people have capes.
He counters this by saying that only men wearing spandex wear capes. Which is only half true. He also holds to the The Incredibles theory that capes tend to end badly; cape snagged on a missile fin, sucked into a jet plane engine, caught in an express elevator, sucked into a vortex. You know, bad stuff.
However, I plan to prove him wrong with this list (and by list I mean 3 pictures and a bit of writing) that I have created of awesome people with capes, and why they're better than him. And everyone else. And I mean that in the nicest way.

Number one: Dracula.

Dracula has pointy teeth. He also happens to be a vampire. Dracula is better than you.


Number two: Batman

Despite having no actual super power (we're talking super-strength, super-speed, mind powers, and being able to wear underwear on the outside), Batman still beats bad guys. According to Dylan Moran, he is also better than Jesus. Batman is better than you. He also has a really cool car (and later, motorbike), both of which are better than you.


Number three: Freddie Mercury.

Freddie Mercury is better than you at everything.

I have long had the inner debate: capes vs. "no capes, dahling." I mean, what person in their right mind would disagree with Edith Head, costumer extraordinaire?
But... I love the way the cape flares when I turn. I can't help it. I'm a junkie for the dramatic flair!

"Freddie Mercury is better than you at everything."

Amen.
