I really love Edna Mode? Like, she’s not just a fashion designer– she’s a fashion designer who lives in a high-security mansion with an entire secret underground lab in which she manufactures textiles strong and versatile enough to withstand the abilities of the heroes who will wear them and the villains who will attempt to destroy them.
This lady probably holds multiple degrees in scientific fields most folks don’t even know exist. She could have gone into research or academia like most folks in her position, but at some point during (or prior to) her education she decided that she was going to find a way to combine her passion for science with her flare for fashion, and the end result was being the go-to designer for the most powerful people in the world. That’s just…really awesome to me.
In a movie full of overt badasses, she is quietly the BAMFiest of them all.
