It was only a matter of time... TeddyR

1) Ghost Rider



My all time favourite comic book hero/anti-hero if you will. First appeared in 1972, created by Roy Thomas & Gary Friedrich. I own all the 80's-early 90's Ghost Rider comics and in my opinion he was best pencilled by Don Perlin. Recently transferred to film, being portrayed by a mis-cast Nicholas Cage (damn celebrity fan-boys!). I hated the film, too many silly moments, too much CGI (I think it could have been made without), a really bad version of Blackheart, terrible goofy looking bike...just aload of rubbish really. Ghost Rider has featured in some decent cross-over graphic novels and I liked the Ghost Rider 2099 run, back in the mid-90's.

No.2 - Asterix, capable of wrecking an entire Roman legion. Goscinny and Uderzo's graphic novels were probably the reason for my interest in history. Don't forget Obelix and Dogmatix as well!

3) Batman



No explaination needed, created by Bob Kane in 1939. I have a collection of late 80's - early 90's Batman comics, when he was being drawn by Frank Miller, I think this was the best period of the dark knight's story. The death of Robin, the emergence of Nightwing and Bane breaking Batman's back in the excellent "Knightfall" issues. Batman has survived decades and continues to appeal to adults and children alike, spawning tons of merchandise, tv shows and great films (barring Batman & Robin of course!)

With election day and all, it's only fitting to bring up...

No.4 - Captain America - Though I wasn't always a fan of the Sentinel of Liberty (and his last three movies gave me gas), under the right creative team the icon works. I think he works especially well in stories where he has to differentiate between doing what's "patriotic" and what's better for mankind as a whole. The current storyline by Ed Brubaker post-assassination with Bucky assuming the mantel has probably been one of the best Cap stories EVER. Though there will always be a certain magic to the good ol' "Hitler walloping" Cap too. TeddyR

5) Silver Surfer

My brother's favourite comic hero of all time. Silver Surfer is a really cool character, that is good representation of what became the "Marvel Universe". Bringing in new characters and introducing stories that took place beyond earth. Silver Surfer was always torn between being the servant to his master, Galactus and saving planets and the lives of those he loved. Silver Surfer comics always have cool covers aswell, I have a couple of awesome foil covers. Here's hoping he gets some credibility back when the Surfer film is made, as I loathed FF4: Rise Of Silver Surfer. They made him a joke.

6.) Alfred E Neuman
 
A magazine that I have read since I was a kid and inspired some of my wise @ss humor.  I have to pay tribute to the poster boy here.  (sorry for the large image...I'm too lazy to look for a smaller one...)

7) Hobgoblin



My favourite Spiderman villain, much more sinister and cooler looking than the Green Goblin.

No.8 - Hulk - My all time favorite. The perennial "Jekyll and Hyde" of the Marvel Universe, he's the mightiest mortal on the face of the Earth but all he's ever wanted was to be left alone. Hulk's the strongest one there is, so don't make him hungry... you wouldn't like him when he's hungry.  Wink

10.) Bane

A complete bad @ss who was successful in psychologically and physically beating the snot out of Batman.

No.11 - Cal McDonald - Steve Niles' hard boiled noir b-horror private eye. Kinda like a four-color Kolchak only with a chemical abuse problem and a s**tty attitude. He pals around with a zombie, pops pills, drinks hard, and has more snarky comments and comebacks than Bruce Campbell and Roddy Piper combined! Favorite Cal McDonald mystery? In the "Love Me Tenderloin" one-shot Cal is called upon to solve a series of deaths caused by... a golem made of meat. Here's to hoping the talk of a Cal McDonald movie works out! Groovy.

10. Superman. Surprised nobody's added him yet, seeing as he's one of the most successful comic book superheroes, and the model on which superheroes have been based for nearly 80 years. Something about this story of a god among men has always appealed to me. He's powerful enough for some really epic battles, yet he's also had some really cool stories with human villains like Luthor matching his powers with cunning.

14.) Spy Vs Spy

Another great out of Mad Magazine, these two were never happy unless they were scheming to kill each other.  I actually have a tattoo on my arm of them shaking hands...with bombs behind their backs of course.   TeddyR

15) Durham Red



Sexy space vampire from the 2000AD comics. My favourite female comic book character, sadly ripped-off in the form of Blood Rayne.
