Fan fiction spans all genres of popular culture, from anime to literature. In every fan lierature, there is the Mary Sue. According to Wikipedia, a {Mary} Sue" is a fictional character who is portrayed in an idealized way and lacks noteworthy flaws and appears in the form of a new character beamed into the story or a marginal character brought out from the shadows. {"Mary} Sue" is often a pejorative expression used to deride fan fiction perceived as narcissistic. In this essay Mary Sue is rehabilitated as a figure of Subaltern critique and empowerment."
