"My Ultimate Favorites List"

That's what I should've called it. I may have to change that.

Thanks.

Great List, nice to see my favourite Superman rank so high.

@coolguyr99: Thanks, I'm glad you like it. Superman is the greatest superhero of all and also my favorite DC character.

That's right! Ben Grimm is one of the most original and coolest superheroes ever. He should also be one of the most popular superheroes ever. Thanks!!!

@PowerHerc: Ben Grimm is and has always been one of my persnal favorites! That's why whenever I see him lose a fight to someone I always assume he was holding back!

@infonation: I know what you mean.

When I was a kid I used to consider him Marvel's second strongest hero (to the Hulk) but I eventually came to realize the powers-that-be at Marvel would never allow him to truly rank that high.

Any list with Hercules, Zatanna, and Flint is a list I like!

Posted by PowerHerc

@Blood1991:

I'm glad you like my list.

We agree: Those three characters are great!

Posted by JJ62

Nice, I think you're probably the only guy I know that has Hercules as their number one. That's really unique, and cool!

I like Hercules too, but as you pointed out in my list he isn't top 20. But he's number 21 just barely behind Colossus.

Overall great list, Thing, Superman and Cap are all in my top 5 so we can agree on those three!

@jj62:
I might be the only person who lists Hercules as my number one favorite but I bet there are a few others who would, too. Maybe Hercules will make your list if or when you add to it. :)

Superman and Captain America are some to the greatest of all-time and their huge fan following proves it, but I think it's absolutely awesome that you rate the Thing fifth on you list of Marvel favorites. Not enough people truly appreciate the Thing. I'm glad you do.

Thanks for looking and commenting.

Yeah, I love Thing. When I was little I was first introduced to Superman, Hulk and Fantastic Four all at the same time so Thing became one my favs right behind Hulk and Supes. As time passed, other characters like Daredevil and Spidey have surpassed him but Grimm will always hold a special place with me. A top 5 just isn't complete without the Thing.

As for Hercules, for me he falls under the category of "honorable mentions" so if I expand my list at any time he'd be right behind Colossus.

@jj62: I know how you feel, the Thing will always be one of my favorites as well.

I see you mostly like the A and B listers.

And I was not expecting Calvin from the comic strip Calvin and Hobbes to show up.

Sorry. I like the Hulk, he is on my list of "Favorite Marvels Heroes - Male", just not as much as the others on my over-all, combined favorites list.
