Favourite Comic Book Superhero?


CF Legend
So, who's the awesome bundle of amazingness that excites you the most? Which exterior underpants wearing caped crusader with special powers do you most want to be? Who do you wish YOU turned into every time you go into a public toilet? George Michael?! (I thought not!) :p

Who is CF's favourite superhero? And why?

Batman for me..... I just find him, y'know, almost believable! If being a coaster enthusiast has taught me anything, it's that flying's over-rated! Plus gadgets LOVE life! <3

Spiderman. Swinging through cities at high speeds would be ace, although I'd be crap when it comes to going on top of buildings. I hate heights. Spidey always has been my fave super hero <3

Mind you, I did use to OBSESSIVELY wear a Batman costume when I was about 5. But all Batman does is fall off buildings headfirst and use gadgets, which is cheating.

...my favorite is Daredevil. I know, I know - the movie sucked. But I've liked DD since I was a kid, which was long before they ever even considered making movies from comic books.
After being blinded by radioactive
that fell from a truck, he developed a proximity/radar sense that made him more like a bat than Batman. Other than his senses, he has no other superpowers but is a kickass martial artist. He also has a great gadget in his blind man's cane/billy club/grapnel that he uses to get around like Spiderman uses his web-swinging.
And how can you not like a superhero who's nickname is "the Man Without Fear"?!

Batman's the best "universe", but, it has nothing to do with Batman, and everything to do with the amazing villains. Batman's just there so the fab villains have something to fight against, he's the least interesting part of everything he's ever in.

So my favourite actual superhero? I ****ing love Nightcrawler, he's amazziinngg. Plus he has a tail. A mother-****ing TAIL. Yeah, I'm going with Nightcrawler. He's in X Men for the morons.

Probably either Batman or Spiderman... they're both really cool.

Although I do like Flash cause he's fast and stuff...

I've only ever had one pair of "Super Hero" pants, and that was!!!

I lived, breathed and shat Battle of the Planets when I was a kid (and probably did it in those pants too). Absolutely immense stuff. Jason was the best, obviously because he was brooding, impulsive, violent and constantly fought with Mark, the smug git leader.

I go to conventions dressed as him!

Oh yeah!

So that would be my first choice, closely followed by Batman, then Spiderman.

I like the physical vulnerability of Batman, and the cool toys he has to help him out. Like Ben says though, it's the universe he's in (anything that contains so much reference to H.P. Lovecraft is going to be good ;) )that makes it so appealing. The world he lives in and the fantastic baddies he plays host to are superb.

With Spiderman, it's really the mental vulnerability I liked (though Toby McGuire has clearly ruined it). There's a degree of physical vulnerability too, but I like that he's guided by a tortured sense of duty. It's crap now I'm grown up, but it's go a good depth to it when you're younger. Plus Venom and Doc Oc are fab :)

Yeah, I like my heroes to be ready to die any minute, or make a mistake that will really screw them. I like them to be undone by themselves as much as the baddies :)

Batman, as he's rich and dosen't actually have 'powers'

Just runs off buildings screaming that his parents are dead. :p

I'm not really into comics, but my sister hugely is, and from the comics I've had forced on me, I'll have to say Deadpool.

Paperinik, or Avenger Duck if you want.


Who else? Any of the silly American or Japanese superheroes?

Oh, wait, Super-Goof is cool too.
