    Thought I'd do something different on the forum, so I want to ask you. What comic book heroes do you like? I've recently revived my love for comic books and have read some many good books. Here are a few of my personal favourites

    U.S. Agent aka John Walker: This guy is a great anti-hero, he can be a loudmouth jerk who mouths off at people but when the going gets rough. He does the right thing and proves deep down he can be a good hero

    Blade: In my opinion one of the most important characters in the comic book world. The 1998 film really surprised people and showed that comic book movies could be so dark and powerful. Blade himself is great, he ain't afraid of no vampires. I can't wait to see the new upcoming film

    The Incredible Hulk: He deserves a spot on my list, without him I would have never gotten into superheroes period.

    Jean Grey from the X-Men franchise: The Dark Phoenix saga is just a classic storyline and Jean herself is very sympathetic and likeable. I like the versions where she fights back and takes control again. Sophie Turner did a wonderful job in the recent movies, I'd like to see her back again......probably won't but I can dream.

    Man-Thing: This guy is weird, he's a slimey swamp monster who never says a word but his books never bore me. I love reading them

    Sonic the Hedgehog.

    Cyclops from X-Men.

    Wolverine from X-Men. Oh. FYI. There is an anime about him if no one has seen it.

    Batman. Though I'm more cartoon focused. Never read many comics of his.

    I have never really been a comic fan, but a friend tried to get me into it when I was young and I briefly collected Kull in early 70's. Blade, Blood Battle, yeah.

    But I'd also read those weird/strange tales types if I came accross them.

    ;)

    Bronze Age:
    Batman (before extensive armor)
    Catwoman
    Spider-Man
    Daredevil
    Black Widow
    Nova
    "Doc" Savage

    I liked Green Arrow's silver/bronze-age costume best, but his Robin Hood/archer motif was a bit limiting.
    Hawkeye's emphasis is on his aim* (rather than just archery), making him a little more versatile in his missions, but I was never impressed by his costume.

    Later:
    Danger Girl
    Tomb Raider

    *Like a hero version of the villain, Bullseye.

    Hmm, I'm not sure.

    The problem I've always had with comic books is that they're just very hard to follow. Too many individual series that often get all tangled with each other in some overarching story that then has bonkers amounts of time travel and then the universe like, splits or something, making it even more confusing.

    I'd love comics in theory, I'm sure, but I've never really been able to get over that hurdle. I'm used to manga, which is very straightforward (usually). Though a friend of mine (who is really into DC) gave me a couple of specific miniseries compilations to read, which were much easier.

    If I had to choose some heroes I like, despite limited knowledge, I'd go with Superman, Batman, Green Lantern, uhhhh... yeah, those guys.

    (From the "slow on the uptake" files)
    I recently realized that Iron Man, with his original heart issues, was probably inspired by the Tin Man in The Wizard of Oz.
    (And I played the Tin Man in fifth grade!)
    If I Only Had A Heart... (1939)

    She has a great costume that would look great in a team-up with Captain America, but her powers are a little too deus-ex-machina for me.
