    Default Paris Hilton vs Mary Jane Watson

    Now that spoilt, rich girl, Paris Hilton is going to jail, I've been wondering if there is a consistent theme of beautiful, rich girl, which many of us find attractive.

    Consider these examples:
    1) Veronica Cartwright, Archie's perennial girlfriend, is a spolt rich girl, and Archie prefers her to blonde Betty;
    2) In Cheers, Woody's character gets married to blonde, rich girlfriend, who doesn't come across as a genius by any stretch of the imagination;
    3) Hal Jordan, who is Green Lantern, had his love affair with Carol Ferris, the rich heiress, and his alter-ego was forever being chased by Star Sapphire (a constant theme a couple of decades before COIE);
    4) The 1970's TV series, Buck Rogers, had Princess Ardala forever trying to nab him. And a princess is presumably very wealthy.

    Contrast this to the girls of working class background:
    1) Lois Lane is Superman's girlfriend and is presumably working class;
    2) Lana Lang from Smallville is also working class;
    3) Gwen Stacey, Spiderman's first, deceased girlfriend, was from a working class - her father was a police officer
    4) Mary Jane Watson is also from a working class family.

    With these two contrary themes, can we draw any distinction as to whether we prefer the Paris Hilton's to the Mary Jane Watson's ... or vice versa?

    You're right - Cartwright is a talented actress, and I apologize to her for my mistake.

    Lois Lane always struck me as annoyingly bourgeois (i.e. conceited upper middle class) but admittedly I don't know the first thing about her real background.

    Bravo! That's a good choice.

    Drew, I don't know much about Lois either, but, even if she was educated upper middle class, she would still be MIDDLE CLASS - as opposed to Veronica Lodge who could afford her own jet plane.
