any X men
I have always been a fan of Spiderman. I love the character depth, he has more emotional struggles than any other superhero and for that he is the tops.
Batman, he is a real person. No superpowers and the most complex pschye of all the superheros.
No Super Powers, he's just angry all the time.
Tie between Batman and Spiderman. Though I was in love with Wonderwoman when I was three...
Batman (thanks mostly to "Batman Begins").
I find the whole mythology surrounding superheroes fascinating. Take my favorite superhero, Superman. Not a great comic book, not particularly well-drawn. But, the mythology is not only great, it's unique. A staple of the superhero mythology is, there's the superhero, and there's the alter ego. Batman is actually Bruce Wayne, Spider-Man is actually Peter Parker. When he wakes up in the morning, he's Peter Parker. He has to put on a costume to become Spider-Man. And it is in that characteristic that Superman stands alone. Superman did not become Superman...Superman was born Superman. When Superman wakes up in the morning, he's Superman. His alter ego is Clark Kent. His outfit with the big red "S"--that's the blanket he was wrapped in as a baby when the Kents found him. Those are his clothes. What Kent wears, the glasses, the business suit--that's the costume. That's the costume Superman wears to blend in with us. Clark Kent is how Superman views us. And what are the characteristics of Clark Kent? He's weak, he's unsure of himself...he's a coward. Clark Kent is Superman's critique on the whole human race.
I just love Batman. He's way cool.
Batman, because he doesn't need superpowers to be a superhero. Aside from his wealth (which, I admit, is helpful for his crime-fighting) Bruce Wayne is basically a regular guy; I like the idea that one doesn't x-ray vision or telepathy to become a superhero.
A close second is Spiderman, because he's a nerd: just goes to show that you don't have to be the cool kid to save the world.
Other: Wolverine. I like the adamantium claws! Plus he's got an interesting psychology . . .
I am saddened to see that Supes isn't in the top 3, because he is the best!
Though, Captain America and The Tick aren't far behind.
If it had been Hero, I would've voted for Punisher.
Other - The Mask. Yeah he was cool with his green face and everything.
Batman or Spiderman... which to choose...
I'll think I'll have to go with Spiderman. Super awesome.
Batman Begins nearly did it for the Dark Knight though....
Cyclops!! and, in second place, Gambit!
Batman. Although Punisher, Deadpool, Iron Man are all cool too.
Wolverine, I love it when he goes into his berserk rages!
I've always liked Storm from the X-Men comics and the cartoons. A lady who can control the weather just is appealing to me.
