Hot Blooded / Comic Books

Go To

  • ElfQuest: Rayek and Kahvi. Their daughter should have been a thermonuclear bomb, but she turns out to be a serene mystic. Go figure...
  • X-Men:
  • The Doom Guy has more hotblood pumping through his veins than every anime character combined.
  • Guy Gardner of the Green Lantern Corps, with a heaping dash of Boisterous Bruiser. Unsurprisingly, he became a Red Lantern, since their trademark power is to spew boiling blood at their enemies.
  • Empowered is usually a neurotic mess, but when she can actually pull herself together, she qualifies nicely for this. Her friend Ninjette is like this most of the time, to Emp's ongoing frustration.
  • Everything in Warrior, the comic by the Ultimate Warrior, even the narration is Hot-Blooded.
  • Incredible Hulk: The angrier Hulk gets, the STRONGER Hulk gets!
    • The Red Hulk. His blood is actually Hot... so much so that he'll actually pass out once it hits a certain level.

  • In an early issue of Daredevil, old Hornhead comes to see the Plunderer is one hot blooded customer, possessing a "fire" to him that is so bold, Daredevil could pick him out of a crowd of hundreds. Daredevil is blind.
  • Lois Lane. She's expert at near-suicidal investigations, and she will make sure that even the times her husband has to rescue her will yield front page material.
  • Supergirl:
    • All incarnations of Kara Zor-El are emotional, passionate and headstrong women, and some of them are quite hot-tempered (her New 52 self) or tend to charge into situations without thinking (her post-Crisis counterpart).
    • Her anger is an actual plot point in the Red Daughter of Krypton arc, in which she attracts a Red Ring of Rage and can hardly control her emotions.
    • In Demon Spawn her co-worker and rival 'Nasty' picks on her, and Linda goes to her office to cool off... by swearing and punching a wall.

    • In Krypton No More: Kara will yell at whoever slights her cousin and by the same token she will slap him if he is doing something wrong.
    • In Elseworld's Finest: Supergirl & Batgirl both main characters count, being two emotional, passionate and stubborn women. Kara tends to be more impulsive than Batgirl and Barbara is more short-tempered than Supergirl, though.
    • In War World Kara is enthusiastic, strong-willed, determined and eager to jump right into the fray.
  • The second Superboy (Kon-El/Conner Kent) was very much this, as well as Fun Personified. It all went away when he learned he was half-Lex Luthor, causing him to go Darker and Edgier.
  • Johnny Storm/The Human Torch from Ultimate Fantastic Four. Like his powers, he's a very temperamental person and it doesn't take much for him to go berserk on things with his powers.
  • This is Wally West's main distinction from his mentor, Barry Allen. While Barry was calm and methodical, Wally is impulsive, snarky, quick to anger, and incredibly opinionated.
