In a recent episode “The Mysterious Mare Do Well” the superhero character “Mare Do Well” drew inspiration from a great many comic book character sources. Let’s look at a few similarities in other characters.
Mare Do Well looks quite a bit like Batman, but more specifically there are similarities to Batman: The Animated Series Batman, as can be seen by these posters which look incredibly similar to the animated series logo. Some of the music from the episode was very similar to that in Batman: The Animated Series.
Keep reading for similarities to Batwoman and Darkwing Duck.
Ultimately Mare Do Well is discovered to actually be Pinkie Pie, Twilight Sparkle, Applejack and Fluttershy, with Rarity helping with the costumes. Rainbow Dash was thrown off the trail due to the traits not fitting any single pony, similar to how Batman was thrown off the trail of Batwoman who was actually 3 different people in Batman: Mystery of the Batwoman.
Finally Mare Do Well’s hat bears a striking resemblance to that of Darkwing Duck.
Mare Do Well is obviously an amalgam of many Super Heroes, and these are just a few things that surely inspired the character we saw.
