I kind of want to recommend a character of the month poll for "Mythological based character" but it would just come down to Wonder Woman and Thor anyway

@jonny_anonymous: Space survival is actually not how it is depicted in pop culture. Your skin easily has enough pressure on it to hold in the gases contained inside (though if you opened your mouth, your saliva would quickly evaporate). So too is the freezing cold not a huge issue, because although it is really cold in space, there is also almost no matter to conduct the cold. The one or two atoms that hit them per minute would cool the body, only very slowly. The main problem in space is from the radiation (which is basically everywhere, and enough to flash fry a person) as well as the lack of breathable air. His mask might help with the breathing, but the top of his head and his neck being exposed would lead to nearly instantaneous death, although he might have seen Silver Surfer's girlfriend and realized that she is ok with less and assumed that he too would be protected.
