* 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.

** I would say that [[Main/CharacterDerailment pre-One Year Later]] Batgirl is even better, although marginally.

* Helena Bertinelli, AKA ComicBook/{{Huntress}}. Picture Batman if he'd been a Sicilian mobster's daughter and never developed that "no killing" rule, and that's essentially her. She's a CombatPragmatist who can go toe-to-toe with opponents who far outrank her, she's an expert shot with a crossbow, she's not afraid to defy Batman in his own city and dispense justice on her own terms, and she's wonderfully [[DeadpanSnarker snarky]] to boot. But the real reason I love her so much is that she's a {{Determinator}} to the bone. She's taken bullets and brutal beatings in order to save people, and wouldn't hesitate to go all the way and give her life if it meant others would live. ''That's'' the mark of a superhero to me.

''That's'' A willingness to sacrifice oneself for the good of others; ''that's'' the mark of a superhero to me.me, and Huntress has it in spades.

* Eugene "Flash" Thompson aka the the fourth {{ComicBook/Venom}} has become one of this troper's favorite comic book characters ever in a very short amount of time. I like him so much because of the fact that he is more like Spider-Man than the actual Spider-Man in recent years, Flash goes through so much crap (from [[HandicappedBadass lossing his legs in Iraq]] to DemonicPossession), [[IronWoobie yet he still wants to help people]] because [[AscendedFanboy he was inspired by Spider-Man all those years ago]]. That's a really inspiring character and you really want to root for him to succeed in the struggle between him and the symbiote(and possibly the Demon)

* This Troper became a newly formed (pun intended) ComicBook/PlasticMan fan... He is so creative when he expresses his elastic powers visually. Plus, his recent TV incarnation is voiced by none other than the guy who does SpongeBob.
