As a kid, I always loved when Santa was included in a comic or TV show. It’s goofy and dumb but nearly always enjoyable. I thought in this week-long build up to Xmas it wouldn’t hurt to have a bit of goofy, dumb fun around here.
I think you can just about do anything with Santa because he’s not an entity so clearly defined. He’s different from country to country, and can be from household to household within the one neighbourhood. You make of Santa what you will, so long as you believe. He can be powerful, sweet, misguided, terrible, whatever you like can be projected onto the jolly red fat man.
Hell, if you want to put someone else in the suit that’s just as cool. A Venom Santa, or Wilson Fisk in the suit, the possibilities are truly endless. But hopefully, they’re all fun.
I am extremely excited to see how my fellow tenures handle this character and ring in the new year. A Santa for every genre.
