Jon Erik Christianson of Boston University's Quad magazine recently investigated the relative personality traits of comic book characters as categorized by their hair color in "The ComiQuad: "Roots of Superhero Hair Color."
Unfortunately, most of the blonde characters also seem to fall under blonde stereotypes. Of the six men listed above, all except The Flash are known for being some of the most arrogant and vain superheroes.
Can you guess which Corporate Crusader was included in the list of blondes? In the real world, this would be libelous pseudo-scientific stereotyping by an individual's ethnicity. However, there's probably some validity in the deconstruction of colorfully costumed comic book heroes who typically thrive or die based on the quality of their graphic designers.
Hairless Skeets probably qualifies as bald under Christianson's classification system, and therefore evil. Poor, doomed, domed Skeets.
