My Actual Favorites
For me, a favorite character is one that causes me to pick up a comic JUST because they are appearing in it. It's not every character I like more than a certain level, but characters that I MUST read. Characters from miniseries or concluded works won't be included because then it gets too messy, because of course I'd want to read more of a character if I thought I'd never see them again. I'm sticking with characters that are currently in the rotation.
