This 4-year-old likely knows more than you do about Marvel

Most Marvel comics fans pride themselves in their encyclopedic knowledge of comic-book continuity, amassed over a lifetime of reading. The Summers family tree, the gross national product of Latveria, whatever the deal is with Wanda Maximoff’s kids — that sort of thing. And now this 4-year-old girl is about to put them to shame.

In a video posted over the weekend, Mia Grace Montross of Schenectady, New York, correctly answers 23 Marvel trivia questions (with occasional prompting), ranging from what Captain America’s shield is made of and the stones of the Infinity Gauntlet to the names of the prince of Wakanda and the Devourer of Worlds.

Her father Skip Montross, who runs Daddydadblog, told Mail Online that Mia’s love her superhero comics began after she watched an old episode of Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends.

Conversely, my love for superhero comics ended after I watched a recent episode of Ultimate Spider-Man.

Aw, it’s nice to see Super Hero Squad’s influence, there.

Her dad should stand for a correction, since secondary vibranium can be found in the Savage Land.

LIKE SHE SAID ;)

This girl sure knows more than her dad. Black Panther is the king of Wakanda, not the prince of Wakandia.

Superhero squad is a great intro to the characters for kids, it is a real shame they canceled it. But at least it’s still in reruns on the Hub.

This girl needs to be in a video with Lindalee Rose, STAT.

He “corrected” her by saying “Invisible Girl;” when of course it’s been Invisible Woman for thirty years! She IS more knowledgable than him!

No way that 4-year old knows more than I do. I’ll take her DOWN in a trivia battle.

I’m calling you out!

I win, I get the kid.

You win, you get my kid.

James Howlett, not Logan. C’mon Dad, get it right…

Good to know what is appropriate to convert my kids into comic book nerds early on. Hopefully, Netflix keeps Spider-man and his Amazing Friends online for stream for several years.

But the kid knows more then Dad at 4…. what is she Valeria Richards incarnate?

“[W]hat is she Valeria Richards incarnate?”

Perfect answer man!

She is truly a font of Marvel trivia. Most fans would be stumped by softball questions like “Name the 4 members of the Fantastic Four”

LOL that she knew the correct answer to the Vibranium question and her dad did not. The Wakanda Vibranium was destroyed in DoomWar. So the Antarctic Vibranium in the Savage Land is all that’s left. Kudos, Mia Grace!

Good girl.

Almost makes me rethink my no-kids stance. Almost

When she owns approximately 15, 000 comics and can go into a 50c back issue bin and know that she doesn’t own What If? #13 and #15, but DOES own # 14 without checking a list THEN I’ll be impressed. Until then I find her no threat.

Seriously though… very cute. One day she’ll grow up and be every nerds’ dream girl.
