Well said. By that definition I think it's gotta be either Hulk or Spidey, with the tragic flaw being Banner's obsession with his research or Pete's youthful rebellion. I voted for Hulk
" @cattlebattle: By Aristotle's definition a tragic hero is a character who has started out with a certain degree of nobility (so that they have something to lose), but still has some sort of humanizing flaw that prevents them from being perfect. This character makes some sort of mistake that leads to their own downfall. There are other aspects to this particular idea as well, like their fall is caused solely by their own actions with no outside influence. MacBeth is an excellent example from slightly less contemporary literature. "
Catwoman's been done to death, if they put her in I'd be seriously disappointed. I'd like to see how Nolan would handle one of Batman's powered rogues; maybe give Poison Ivy another chance, try to undo the damage of Batman and Robin. On the other hand, somebody like the Riddler or the Ventriloquist would fit really well into the universe they've set up so far
