    Just remember the old adage, "Nobody stays dead in comics except Uncle Ben", since he was the reason that Spider-Man became a hero.

    That quote used to be, "Nobody stays dead in comics except Uncle Ben and Bucky Barnes", since Bucky's death was why Marvel doesn't have teen sidekicks as POV characters like DC does. But Bucky didn't stay dead. In fact, he's now the new Captain America...

    They were probably talking about that quote when they promoted him to Capt. America.

    Yeah. Becoming Capt. America is a promotion no matter who you used to be.

    I personally would rather see Immortus fix all this mess and set Bucky in the assassin's target while returning the real Cap to his fans. After all, after decades of reading comics, I see no other good reason for Bucky Barnes other than to facilitate the original Cap in some way. He was a sidekick in the worst of terms, I feel (Rick Jones made a better Bucky than Bucky, in my eyes) and to suddenly resurrect him and make him Captain America is nowhere near as good a legacy hero coming out into his own as, say Nightwing.

    Immortus. Kang. Some various incarnation of him in-between. That's what we need to sort this out...before Disney does and decides to kill Steve Rogers' mom just for the sake of character development.


    ...but I digress...

    My favorite superhero is Spider-Man, pre-OMD, by Marvel Comics.

    There were several reasons I enjoyed the character so much, including his relationship to Mary Jane and other supporting cast members and the balance he always tried (with much difficulty) to maintain with his personal and heroic identities.

    Have to admit, I always had a bit of a fanboy in me for the web head, Spidey, as well as a few of his villians such as Venom and Doc Oc. Overall I think it was probably always my favorite series.

    Though I have to admit Kurt Wagner, A.K.A. the incredible Nightcrawler was always close to my heart. I love his ability of teleportation, and the fact he looks so different from normal people, and as such, is an outcast to most people.

    To add to the ridiculous super hero thing...

    Well ... my favorites have changed with time, but initially I was all about Wolverine - I got into comics with his crucifixion by the Reavers in Australia - that emotional ride they had him on, and the tie to Jubilee sold him to me.

    After a while, though, I decided that Captain America's the best, most heroic hero I can imagine. He's got all the moral impetus of say Superman, and not even a fraction of the power ... yet he hangs and bangs with the best of them (mostly on account of the shield - barely). He's the one the heaviest hitters look to for approval - that says plenty about him and the respect he's earned from these guys.

    Plus, you just gotta love a guy that can plan and command like him. He's like the MacGuyver of "win" more or less. You give him any situation, and he'll plan it RIGHT THERE to turn the tide.

    Batman needs all of this planning time and stuff to be written in most of the time, and it just comes off kind of lame by comparison to me. Cap, on the other hand, get out-classed, but still manages to figure out a way to snatch victory anyway - it's just more impressive to me given the situations I've seen him in and the feats he's accomplished compared to most every other hero out there.

    And ... when Marvel shot him, I was devastated. I couldn't believe they let the Captain go out like that. Much happier now that he's returned, but cripes! What a terrible moment in comics that was for me.

    On a side note, I love, love, LOVE the Nightwing/Robin/Dick Grayson character almost as much. As a character that's grown, developed, and become his own person - Dick Grayson stands head and shoulders above everyone else. He's awesome!

    I loved Captain Britain when I was younger. Still like re-reading the 'Crooked World' storyline ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jaspers%27_Warp ) I suppose Spider-man is the 'go back to' character, but the art has ranged from sublime to downright awful, same with the storylines. When John Byrne did Superman I was hooked on that series too. George Perez' run on the Teen Titans another favourite that pulled me in to love that book. I suppose I'm a sucker for well drawn comics, and the love for the character grows from there. After all that, no overall favourite that I've stuck to through thick and thin though if I made a rough list:

    Spider-Man (if you had to tie me down to one he'd be it)
    Captain Britain
    Superman (Byrne reboot onwards)
    Batman
    And at various times I've followed/made favourites of:
    Captain America
    Iron Man

    Groups:
    Teen Titans
    Justice League
    Avengers
    Defenders

    Aside from the early X-Men stuff (pre wolverine) never been a mutant fan.

    Spider Woman. Need I say more... and remember, I'm a Lich so she is a superhero for the dark side.

    Do a google search. It will all become clear, mmm.

    As long as we're raising this thread from the dead, let me mention another honorable mention, Cassie Hack from Hack/Slash. Cassie's essentially an angry goth girl with a gun and a baseball bat (and a hulking sidekick) who hunts down slashers (of the Jason Voorhees and Michael Myers variety) across the U.S.

    Granted, she's not "super" in the strictest sense, although part of her talent was inherited ... but, like Batman, that's part of her charm. She's Batman without the wonderful toys, a homeless Batman who lives out of her car and works low-paying temporary jobs just long enough to keep herself and her partner fed and her revolver loaded. She's Batman for the economy of the 21st century.

    Sailor Moon. She learns from her mistakes, not just tactically, but ethically as well. She gets by with equal parts compassion and strength. She sticks to her main message, "You are not alone." She wins over those opponents that she can, and doesn't hesitate to deal with those she can't win over. She has a very bright future ahead of her as the eventual ruler of the solar system, and it seems she achieves it through her merits rather than as some destined legacy.

    And she subverts just about every magical girl trope from previous series, kicking off a second-wave of magical girl tropes. Noteworthy on many levels, indeed~

    (Also, she very briefly shared a crush of younger me. Then again, so did the whole Inner Senshi group, as I recall )
