Storm and Elektra
Have no fear Underdog is here?
The punisher, I loved the skull.
I don't necessarily have any favorite Super Heroes, but COMIC BOOK CHARACTERS, I'd say Kevin and Yellow B****** from Sin City
Wolverine from The X Men. He has a bad attitude, but he still champions good.
The Four Movies (Batman, Batman Returns, Batman: Mask of the Phantasm, Batman Forever), the Animated Series (1992-1997), the Classic Show (1966) and the Classic Movie made me a fan.
Why? He looks cool, has the gadgets, is no real super hero, is a complicated hero.....and has cool villians!
Black Cat from Spiderman.
Ralph Hinkley! Aka, The Greatest American Hero, aka the guy in the red suit, who lost the instruction book. Hehe.
Definitely the Tick. Classic Rogues Gallery and Heroes. Sewer Urchin was genius.
However, that guy from Mystery Men who could only turn invisible when nobody was looking...the person who came up with that power is a comical overlord.
But Tick is still coolest.
'Batman Begins' this year, will ROCK!!
Spiderman, a very close 2nd.
And can not wait for 'Spiderman 3'.
punisher not supper powers like spidersenses, x ray vision. super strenght. supper bank acount. just plain old guy doing what he can.
What about Hulk Hogan?
Modern Green Lantern is the coolest concept, cause it's kinda like imagining what would happen to an ordinary guy if Jedi powers and responsibilities were suddenly dropped on him. The Hal Jordan era seemed to me to have the sarcasm of Spiderman, the mystery of the Prequel era, and the basically humorous concept of Greatest American Hero. Unfortunately, the idea of being able to pass on the ring has led to a long line of people called "the Green Lantern", so it has a more divided fan base than most comics.
A huge part of what makes any super hero work are the conditions under which his or her powers DON'T work, and I always found the (modern) Green Lantern's to be the most intriguing. It just was always fascinating to me how he could have the ability to do much of what Superman could, but that he actually didn't have any powers himself. It led to stories that had more emotional weight, I felt.
Having said that, the spin that the guys over at Smallville are putting on the Superman character is utterly compelling. I'm totally addicted to that show. It's by far the best "superhero" experience I've had on film.
I grew up with her, and she was a great role model for young girls.
Batman, no question.
Storm from X-MEN I wish I had her powers.
