* [[ComicBook/SpiderMan Peter Parker]]. The fact that he's so nice is part of the reason his [[{{Woobie}} Woobiness]] is so pronounced in light of his [[DeusAngstMachina crappy life]] and the [[HeroWithBadPublicity irrational hatred]] [[UngratefulBastard he gets from those he helps.]]

** Tim Drake, ComicBook/{{Robin}} III is also a nice guy, especially in his early ComicBook/RobinSeries. He took care of his girlfriend who was pregnant with her ex-boyfriend's child, and is good at babysitting kids. In the new DCU, he was also called a nice guy by Wondergirl (although he's considerably less likable in the new continuity).

* ComicBook/CaptainAmerica. Pretty much ''anyone'' can (and do, on many occasions) soliloquize about how much everyone adores the shit out of Cap, and never feel like they're laying it on too thick or being out of character; which is something that can't be done to many other characters without it tasting of a CreatorsPet. In the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse, being a Nice Guy is actually the only reason the SuperSerum even ''worked'' - When it was given to a megalomaniac, it created the ComicBook/RedSkull. ColonelBadass [[Creator/TommyLeeJones Chester Phillips]] wanted to give it to a "[[BloodKnight Strong, Fast, Obedient Soldier]], and sixty years later we get to see [[Film/TheIncredibleHulk the results of THAT.]] Only a Good Man could become Captain America.

* Mr. Tawky Tawny in the ''{{ComicBook/Shazam}}'' franchise sometimes causes a scare for being a humanoid tiger, anyone who takes the time to know about him will realize that he is a perfect gentleman and a wonderful person to know.

* Jaime Reyes' ComicBook/BlueBeetle is basically Spider-Man without the world crapping on him as much. Thankfully, he has (or had thanks to Flashpoint) a strong supporting cast he could play off of.
* And of course, the Flash. No matter which one, The Flash will be this. Golden Age Jay Garrick, Silver Age Barry Allen, Bronze Age Wally West (though he bounced between this, JerkWithAHeartOfGold and ChivalrousPervert), DorkAge Bart Allen, all of them are consistently great guys who can and will become the best friend and surrogate brother of anyone they're with.

* [[ComicBook/{{Shazam}} Captain Marvel]] is this in most incarnations, despite a fairly rough childhood. Billy Batson is usually a really sweet guy, often remarked by other characters as being polite, friendly, kind and 'sunny'. And despite being able to turn into a superpowered demi-god, he is just as polite, friendly and kind as Captain Marvel. The Nu-52 version of Billy averts this, being a JerkWithAHeartOfGold , with said heart being buried waaaaay down beneath a whole lot of jerk.

* This is explicitly stated multiple times to be the reason why the Gaulish villagers keep DreadfulMusician Cacofonix around at all, despite him being a pretentious, delusional nuisance otherwise. Once you get past how GiftedlyBad he is and his [[SmallNameBigEgo complete inability to recognise it]], he's shown to be among the most caring, thoughtful and reasonable of the townspeople, although that [[BarbarianTribe isn't really]] [[NominalHero saying much]].

* Mighty the Armadillo from [[ArchieSonicTheHedgehog Archie's Sonic the Hedgehog comic]]. Unlike most beings on Mobius, Mighty is so damn strong that nothing really poses a threat to him. Mighty uses this strength to benefit those that are weaker, including his less-brave friend Ray the Squirrel and his long-lost sister Matilda. The only time that Mighty loses it is when he perceives harm as having come to his friends.

* WonderWoman was designed to be an embodiment of love and peace in UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks who first tried finding peaceful solutions and reforming her enemies compared to the more aggressive methods of her male counterparts. Most incarnations since have followed suit by making her surprisingly humble and an AllLovingHero that can find compassion even for the most vile of her enemies.
* [[ComicBook/TheMightyThor Thor]] for his BoisterousBruiser BloodKnight tendencies has always been a GentleGiant and a FriendToAllChildren, but as time went on, he's become more and more of an AlternateCompanyEquivalent for Superman in more than just the power stakes, displaying the kindness and gentle wisdom the Big Blue Boyscout is known for. It suits him well.

* Most incarnations of {{Franchise/Superman}}'s pal, ComicBook/JimmyOlsen are kind and friendly. He is also arguably Superman's most loyal supporter, cemented by the ongoing ''[[Comicbook/SupermanTruth Truth]]'' storyline.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'': In spite of her angst and anger issues, both of which she outgrows, Supergirl is, in her own way, every bit as sweet and kind as [[Franchise/{{Superman}} her cousin]]. Even during the events of ''Comicbook/RedDaughterOfKrypton'', in which she was briefly an angry berserker, she was the nicest, most considerate and most tactful of all [[Franchise/GreenLantern Red Lanterns]].

* Rarest of rare in {{ComicBook/Monstress}}'s world, but there is one: [[spoiler:Rezak]]. He risks his life to save an Arcanic child, is friends with a high-up Cumaea member, and when Maika is pushed into him by a Cumaea after being bought, his first instinct is to hug her. Whether he'll remain nice in this Crapsack World remains to be seen, but he's doing a pretty good job of it so far.

Added DiffLines:

* Paulie in ''ComicBook/{{Circles}}'' is one of the nicest and sweetest people you could ever meet. He is always friendly towards everyone and even his "enemies" like his cranky and homophobic neighbor when Paulie used his money to pay for his neighbor's back injuries. Eventually his neighbor warmed up to Paulie's friends and accepted them openly.

* [[ComicBook/Starfire]] is [[DependingOnTheWriter sometimes]] this. She comes from a culture of love and often helps her fellow heroes with their personal problems. Although she is often also a case of GoodIsNotSoft.
