My vote(s): Icon/Supreme

Icon: an ethnic take on the Superman origin, with an alien not landing in the field of a Midwestern white family, but by a slave in a cotton field. Instead of becoming a superhero when he rediscovers his powers, he instead hides the abilities, hoping to not disturb mankind's evolution. When, he does become a superhero, he is criticized by the urban black in Dakota, who see him as a sellout and "white-washed".

Supreme: Alan Moore took Rob Liefeld's poor Superman clone and turned the book into a colorful homage to the Superman comics of the Silver Age. Essentially, it was the proto-All-Star Superman.

Captain Marvel - He's a kid given the powers of the gods and his costume (cheesy as it is) is one of the all-time great superhero costumes.

Hyperion - He's Marvel's first (and still best) Superman pastiche. His quick temper makes him an interesting character.

Captain marvel of course. He is legend outside of superman's shadow. He was also the first super hero to have a movie

@charliejade: Um since when was The Shadow a Superman clone?

John Carter came before Superman... anyway, I vote Bizarro.

@charliejade: The Shadow debuted 9 years before Superman and has virtually nothing in common with him.

@banestrokelobogrundybatarrow: He actually is superman related. He's superman with circuits, bizarro is superman with bleached skin, superboy is superman with angst, supergirl is superman with panties, power girl is supergirl with a nice rack

@innersuperman: Doesn't being a Superman clone entail having the same powers?

Captain Marvel, he's greatest Superhero of all time.

Icon, just a cool concept for a backstory.

Shazam....although I like the one who actually is Superman's clone as well.

Maybe Plutonian. I was a huge fan of Irredeemable. Hyperion is pretty great too. Mark Gruenwald's Squadron Supreme is one of the great unsung classics of the 80's.
