If being a boy scout is wrong then i dont want to be right!Besides you can be anything you want to be,when you can drop kick anyone's ass into the sun!


SpiderMan!
The guy who totally &^% up and is always trying to make amends for it, but will never be able to. Dude taught me if you "keep on being selfish and an ass&^% and that &^% will come back to bite you in the ass! karma's a b*&!!So it's better be cool from the start! i love both him and Supes the best!They both have that "great power thing... " going on! and to quote that other stupid guy "they are best at what they do!"

People should always qualify these topics with, "You know, besides Superman, Batman, or Spider-Man" since they are always the favorites for like, 70% of people, haha.

So instead of opining about Batman, I will tell you about how much I like Deadpool. I've always enjoyed how he is used as a 4th-wall breaking metacommentary on comic books, and also just the general humor of the comics always gets me. His irreverence and psychopathy are also winning traits in this department.

Joe Kelly's run is one of the most satisfying comic experiences I've ever had. The rest I can take or leave...

It's true. That does make up my top three.

Excluding them, my next fave would be Cyclops. Then GL.

It really depends on what kind of Superhero mood I'm in. For example, I watched a few episodes of X-men TAS and was in this whole X-men mood. Wolverine was my favorite hero at the time, I beat X-men Legends for the first time ever, and I watched X2 like 3 times. Right now I am kind of in that Marvel mood, so I'll go with


The big three Avengers.

It's hard for me to decide because I like a more fantastical, imaginative universe.(Marvel). While DC has, IMO, more of a modern, stylish, and "grounded" superhero.

Which can both alternate based on who's writing them.

Man, I really need to finish Starman... I think the delay stems from the fact that Jack doesn't exist anymore... yet another reason to hate the New 52.

I agree with him in the sense that Marvel likes showing the human flaws of their characters, bringing them down to our level and making them 'relatable', whereas DC's heroes are elevated 'above' us. Not in the sense that THEY think they are better than us, but just in their principals and the things they deal with, they don't tend to handle things like a regular human being, they handle things like an exceptional human being.

That's not to say that Marvel's heroes aren't ever shown to be excptional human beings, but the storylines tend to deal with much more human 'temptations' (women, fame, ego, money, showing off etc).

Whereas the problems that characters like Superman face are much 'bigger' if you know what I mean.

The age old comparison of DC being comprised of aliens and gods while Marvel is mostly humans that acquire powers but still have human problems.

I see what you mean. When I said more fantastical I meant that some of their ideas seem out of this world. A giant purple man who eats palnets, a green angry guy, a rock man etc. (Stan Lee stuff) But I agree that Marvel has more scientific mishaps and monsters. Sci-fi heroes, basically. And now, with SHIELD being bigger than ever, there is a much larger focus on technology. But yeah, when I see DC, I do see more "Super" heroes.

Well traditionally, DC characters have always felt larger than life and kind of, well, untouchable. Gods amongst men. The heroes are really, REALLY heroic and the villains are really, REALLY villainous, you know?
It has superhero museums, backwards-talking parallel universes and cities full of super intelligent Gorillas... And it's awesome!

Marvel, however, has a much greater emphasis on heroes who are tragically flawed in some way, or heroes who are hated and feared.
It also has a much higher number of gritty vigilante characters. And just, a much earthier, pedestrian feel to the books in general.

EDIT: Just want to point out that I'm not denigrating Marvel at all, they're great too. Just pointing out the different ethos they have.
