5. Shazam/Captain Marvel
I know how I feel about them but im curious what you guys think?
They are not the original but they all serve their own purpose in their respective circles. Nothing beyond that.
But if I can say something...Superman can be considered a bit of a rip-off,sure he was the first quintessential hero and the most popular one,but he was stilled based off another fictional character (what was his name? The Gladiator or something like that?) and so was batman...so they can be considered pale imitations as well,I guess....
@cameron83: I'll admit I've never given him a chance but I read his wiki on here and after reading I was just like "oh come on! You blatantly stole our guy!!....AGAIN!" lol I just can't make myself like him
Well of course if you just read his wiki,but his character seems to be developing more....
For example,his interaction with the children of the savage land,his conversations with Thor,etc...
Well for one you see a completely different character that is adjusting to a new world after his entire universe behind him,the one that he was born and raised in for most of his life was destroyed and then he was just taken by scientists and experimented on and kept in their confinement deprived of energy and is learning to cope in this new world and adopt new ideals...he also might have anger problems....
Hyperion is not exactly a Superman clone,he is becoming MUCH more than that...I recommend reading issues that focus on him to know what I mean.....but Superman is still better imo.
I don't know much of anything about the others, but I absolutely loved the original Supreme. He was the Superman equivalent in power, but everything else was a new look on the powerset. His origin story, his personality (big jerk, not a team player), how he handled bad guys (death). He didn't seem a paper intimation, he was sustainable as a character. I was disappointed they decided to completely change him, which they did back then, not even the current resurrection.
@cameron83: I hope thatdidnt sound like I was win a jerk. Sorry if it did but I was really curious what differences there were
Don't worry,you didn't :)
But we still have to see more of him....
And I hope that Hickmans run lasts a long time and I hope some new writer doesn't come along and just forgets these characters and creates new,weightless ones.
