* Kate Kane (AKA ComicBook/{{Batwoman}}) is awesome! She's a proud lesbian who refused to deny her sexuality, even though it came at the expense of serving in the military. She's strong, incredibly brutal, and regularly faces opponents well out of her weight class (including supernatural enemies) and overcomes them through tenacity, intelligence, and grit. She's a horribly sad and angry person deep down, which gives her wonderfully rich layers of characterization, especially sense unlike many characters, she's able to harness that anger and channel it into productive venues (namely, beatdowns). And she's utterly independent of Batman (who, by the way, is her cousin) to boot. She doesn't take his orders and doesn't consider herself part of the Bat-family, even though she'll offer a hand when needed. For the most part, she just doesn't give a flying red slap if Batman approves of her or not, and it's ''so cool''.

* Even though the storyline was [[BaseBreaker controversial as all get-out]], there's a reason that [[ComicBook/DoctorOctopus Otto Octavius]] as the ComicBook/SuperiorSpiderMan has his fans. An AntiHeroSubstitute Spider-Man is one thing, but Otto was so [[NotSoDifferent uncannily similar to Peter Parker]] that it was genuinely ''chilling'' to see him take up the mantle of Spider-Man. Throughout the 33 issues that he donned the webs, you really got a feel for how disastrous it might be if the radioactive spider had bitten someone with all of Peter's fortitude and intelligence, but none of his humility, idealism or sense of responsibility--and it really made you appreciate Peter all the more when he returned to web-slinging. And aside all that...Otto had his own private army of Spider-{{mooks}}, Spider-bots and Spider-{{mecha}} in the classic red-and-blue Spiderman colors, and we got to watch him personally demolish Wilson Fisk's stronghold with them. The guy might have been a dick, but...if that's not EvilIsCool, I don't know what is.

** And Wonder Woman's daughters-by-inspiration, the [[Creator/ChrisClaremont Claremazons]]. You know who I mean, ''ComicBook/{{X-Men}}'' fans. Storm, Psylocke, Rogue, Phoenix, [[MyFriendsAndZoidberg even Kitty Pryde]]...The X-Women rock. 'Nuff said.

* Lets not forget the other Flash Family. Jay's an awesome old timer, Barry's a loveable nice guy and Wally? He is the character that redefined the Flash; he gave SO much to the title, that its sickening that DC won't let him out to play any more. Wally West is that kind of person who needs to be published again. He needs love, damn it!

* Steve Rogers, CaptainAmerica. He really is just the best.

* Steve Rogers, CaptainAmerica.ComicBook/CaptainAmerica. He really is just the best.



* ComicBook/{{Cyclops}} is the man. With the death of CaptainAmerica, he became the best damn leader in the MarvelUniverse. People complain about him being TheStoic, but that just makes him more badass. Beating up his whole team to teach them a lesson is no problem for him. He needs at least one broken rib to make it challenging. And female telepaths just can't keep their hands off him.

* [[SinCity John Hartigan. Marv. Dwight. Nancy. Miho.]] And those are just the characters I can think of off the top of my head from TheMovie (it's been too long since I read those comics...). Even Kevin has his moments...let's just shorten this and say the only characters from Sin City I don't like are all the Roarks.

* Atom Eve...oh, wait...ok, then...Kitty Pry(damn)...Boom Boom(muther#!@%er)...why do I read these things, again? Ok, well...[[Comicbook/{{X-Men}} X-23]] rocks, so she'll probably get killed by (sucka ass) Daken and his fancy murasma claw...ugh...

* ComicBook/LexLuthor. Greatest Criminal Mind of Our Time. Superman's arch-nemesis, bar none (sorry Zod). IGN's 4th-greatest supervillain of all time (outranked only by Magneto, Dr Doom and SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker). The perfect foil to Superman. [[SupermanRedSon A human being who dares fight a god, surely the greatest of his kind.]] The epitome of the GreenEyedMonster. Second only to Dr Doom in the Never Gives Up Awards. I digress.

* ''{{Supreme}}'' is probably my favorite comic and character in the world. There's just something about him, the fact that even though he's a blatant pastiche it's still new and fresh somehow.

** [[ComicBook/Batgirl 2000 Cassandra Cain]] was raised by an assassin to be the perfect killer. She was abused in ways that would make Tywin Lannister disgusted. She has a background that would work perfectly as a FreudianExcuse for a mass murderer. But instead of being a WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds, she continues to be possibly the most morally upright member of the Bat-Family. Despite her HeroWorship of Bruce, she makes it clear that it is not him that she is really loyal to, but the justice that he represents. She is nothing but kind, strong-willed, and utterly devoted to ThouShaltNotKill. That kind of strength of will, that moral courage, in spite of her horrible past, is why Cassandra is tied with Wally West for my favorite DC character.
