A new weekly feature! Fiction's Finest Nerds will look at nerd examples from books, movies, TV, cartoons, games, comicbooks... Pretty much anywhere you find unreal "people" who are keepin' it real - real nerdy, that is! Now, on with the show!
As the inaugural entry in Fiction's Finest Nerds!, I did not have a second thought: Velma Dinkley!
Velma was not the only smart one on the various incarnations of Scooby-Doo cartoons, but she was definitely the smartest. Some of us found Velma very sexy. More of us found her sexy once they chose Linda Cardellini to play her in the movies (pictured). It was, however, her brains that made her great. Velma always interpreted clues best, and was typically successful, despite being continually saddled with dumb-asses Scooby and Shaggy.
Three cheers for Velma Dinkley! Our first of Fiction's Finest Nerds!
