Are there any characters you actually really like / think they're cool, but you simply don't know much about them / maybe not at all? If so feel free to post them, and if see that someone likes any characters you actually know about, it would be nice if you could post them few good arcs to learn more about them. At least I would be happy if someone would tell me what to read to learn more about the characters I like, but don't know at all!  
 
Mine are:
 
1. Kyle Rayner, aka Green Lantern
2. Ares, from Marvel U
3. Osiris, from DC U 
4. Richard Rider, aka Nova

To be honest Iron Man, I know he's one of the "big three" but I've always just stuck to the X-Men in Marvel so I just know the basic stuff that everyone knows about him

#3 Posted by Adnan (1021 posts) - - Show Bio

If you want Nova, I've been told you should be reading the Cosmic Marvel stuff in general really. Here's a list I keep handy

1. Alan Scott, DC U

2. Vixen, DC U

3. Devil Dinosaur, Marvel U

4. Nova (lol, I don't actually know much about him myself - but I'll get down to reading him some day...)

Wow awesome thanks, saved that one to my HD. Gonna check out some of the stuff for sure! Unfortunately I can't help you out with your characters, sorry.

I think you should really read 'Iron Man: Extremis'. I'm not sure if it's a good arc to start with, but I'm damn sure that it was a really good book with 5 or 6 issues. The art was great and I think you can even watch it online for free, IIRC, and even animated! I think everything is uploaded on Marvel.com and youtube could have it too. You can check out few scenes:

It's from the Dark Avengers Ares miniseries. I'd also recommend reading the Dark Avengers series that features Ares.

Yep, half the reason I liked Dark Reign and Siege was because of Ares and Bullseye. Great that the Dark Avengers are getting brought back.

As for the topic, I tend to label these kinds of characters as characters I like but don't give enough of a crap about to buy their books.

Cheif among them is Deadpool. Never could get into his stuff, not that I dislike him though.

Another biggie is Superman, again, same reasons as Deadpool.

Just about everyone in Iron Man's Rogue Gallery, the JSA members outside of the original rosters and Kang the Conqueror.

If you ever decide to give him a chance, then try his most recent on going volume. I'm always confused by what number is actually is, either 3 or 4, but it starts with Deadpool dealing with a bunch of Skrulls. The art of the comic is awesome, the humor is mostly very entertaining as well and Deadpool has some very cool and genius moments. Unfortunately he is not the badass merc he used to be anymore.

I don't like any characters I don't know at all.

Legion of Superheroes, i think they are one of the most unique and interesting concepts in comic history, and i've tried time and time again to get into them, but i just can't, there's so much history which is sometimes and sometimes not canon, man do i wanna read some Legion.

Etrigan, Kyle Raynor, and Misfit are the only ones that come to mind. I know the basics but not anything in-depth.

#24 Posted by ethanrjc (50 posts) - - Show Bio

I've always been interested in Dr Strange, Silver Surfer and Ironfist individually, so I'm all over seeing them together in the new Defenders series that just started. I picked up the Defenders issue from the Marvel Vault a few months back and it served as a decent prequel of sorts to the new series as id never read a Defenders comic before. Some characters I've always liked and read about but still don't know their ENTIRE stories are Carnage, Scarlet Spider, Black Panther, Fantomex, and Moonknight. Some of my top favorite characters, but I'm still reading up on em lol.
