The Mysterious Mare Do-Well by LeXCreatriX The Mysterious Mare Do-Well by LeXCreatriX
I loved today's episode.

Mare Do-Well's costume design, just... AAAAH, love it. Had to do a drawing.

Personally, this one was my least favorite in the series thus far. Why? Because the girls, minus RD, were assholes. They didn't talk to her about not being a showboat. Instead, they talked about her behind her back, went as far as to make up a hero on the fly to upstage her at every turn, which led RD to a minor form of depression where she felt so alone that she rejected to spend time with Scootaloo. In the end, they all basically quoted the moral of the story, not allowing RD to figure it out for herself, which led to her almost going back to being a showboat.

Story and moral wise, this episode was the weakest out of all of them.

Reference wise, this one was over the top with Darkwing Duck, Spiderman, and Batman all being referenced in some way:

Darkwing Duck - Mare Do Well's costume design
Spiderman - RD saying, "No need to fear, your friendly neighborhood Rainbow Dash is here!"
Batman - The posters at the event at Town Hall show a similar design to the Batman comic cover.

Daring Pony of mystery,
Champion of right,
Swoops out of the shadows,
Mare-Do-Well owns the night.
Somewhere some villain schemes,
But his number's up, cause here comes

MARE-DO-WELL! (When there's trouble you call MDW!)
MARE-DO-WELL! (Let's get dangerous!)
MARE-DO-WELL! (Mare, Mare-Do-Well!)

Cloud of smoke and she appears,
Mistress of surprise.
Who's that cunning mind behind
That shadowy disguise?
Nobody knows for sure,
But bad guys are out of luck.

'Cause here comes Mare-Do-Well!
Look out! (When there's trouble you call MDW!)
MARE-DO-WELL! (Let's get dangerous!)
MARE-DO-WELL! (Better watch out, you bad boys!)
MARE-DO-WELL!

When you say "Mare Do Well" a few times, it kinda sounds cool ^^

Good-
She's a dark and mysterious sort of hero.
Like a pony version of Batman.

Probably cause of the toned down color.
I added some gray so that I could use a sharper dark purple for the lineart.

Come to think of it... what would a Discord'd Mare Do Well be like?

I guess it would depend on which of the ponies were wearing the mask at the time...

Is this from the new episode? Because I haven't seen it yet and need to watch it ASAP! So I think I will go do that right now.

I'm flattered that you think so-
But I'd prefer you didn't.
Thank you very much for at least asking.
