Brain Game: Meet Jill

Say "hi" to young Jill, whose likes and dislikes will help you solve today's mentalfloss.com Brain Game Free-for-all Friday challenge. Good luck!

Jill likes to color but isn't a fan of finger-painting.
She would rather wear pajamas than a dress.
She enjoys traveling by airplane but not by train.
Jill would rather swing on an old tire than go down a slide.

With all these in mind, which part
of Mr. Potato Head does Jill like best?

mustache, nose, eyebrows

Here is the ANSWER.

THE ANSWER:

Jill prefers Mr. Potato Head's MUSTACHE.

Jill likes things that have alternate British spellings: COLOR/COLOUR, PAJAMAS/PYJAMAS, AIRPLANE/AEROPLANE, and TIRE/TYRE. So her favorite attachment for the Spud Guy would naturally be his MUSTACHE/MOUSTACHE.

NOTE: These puzzles sometimes lend themselves to alternate "correct" answers. If you came up with one, feel free to share it with us in the comments below. And have a great weekend!

No matter what their powers, every super hero has an origin story, from Spider-Man’s radioactive bite to Iron Man’s life-threatening chest shrapnel. In their latest poster, the designers at Pop Chart Lab have taken their infographic savvy to the Marvel Universe, charting the heroic origins of 36 different Marvel characters through miniature, minimalist comics.

Without using any words, they’ve managed to illustrate Bucky Barnes's plane explosion and subsequent transformation into the Winter Soldier, Jessica Jones’s car crash, the death of the Punisher’s family, and other classic stories from the major Marvel canon while paying tribute to the comic book form.

Explore the poster below, and see a zoomable version on Pop Chart Lab’s website.

Prints are available for pre-order starting at $37 and are scheduled to start shipping on March 8.
