I buy myself something for Xmas and my birthday every year. In addition to what I received from my girlfriend I purchased a Jeff Lemire print and this SDCC exclusive Swamp Thing figure from a couple of years back.
For me, my favorite characters have always been either non powered heroes like Batman, Green Arrow, Jack Knight, The Question. Or powered characters with a lot of real world problems like Spider-Man, Daredevil or Animal Man.
When Powerpuff Girls was on, Cartoon Network was at its absolute height. I was a huge fan of the show and a lot of the other cartoons from that era. I used to pretend that Totally Spies were PPGs in High School. The Professor had died. Due to their high profile gig as superheroes they had to change their names and go into witness protection. Without the Professor and his formula their powers had wained. But Jerry, a friend of the Professor's and the girl's new legal guardian gave them a way to keep saving the world...as spies.
