Late last week, Bloomberg Markets profiled AQR founder Cliff Asness, who has continued his boyhood "obsession" with comic books and their characters into adulthood. His desk in Greenwich is home to Spiderman, Captain America, The Hulk and Iron Man, he has a Captain America shield on his right bicep and he "identifies with" many a super hero. In sum, Asness fancies himself one of them and to that end, is clearly dying for someone to make a character modeled after him. A very talented DB reader (and fellow hedge fund quant) did just that. As we were discussing possible sidekicks and a love interest for Quant Man, however, we realized there was a problem that needed rectifying. Before we can continue with Cliff, who is the one person who truly deserves her own action figure?

The Dollar Dominatrix. With JPMorgan reporting earnings tomorrow and the other banks next week, we need to get on this and fast. Our vision for the DD is that she should probably be wearing some sort of leather get-up, with maybe a dollar sign on the front. And Perhaps a cat-o-nine nails or spreader/truss bar in one hand and I don't know, a client report in the other? Or should it a pair of balls, with the suggestion that they come from the Wall Street bull? We are open to and welcome your ideas.
