I'll be honest my number one favorite character changes a lot but currently its Kaine in a few weeks it will have probably changed again. It's been great to see him make the transition from murdering psychopath to hero (anti-hero is probably a better description though). I always liked his character even before the new Scarlet Spider series as he was Peter Parker without the morals to hold him back.
One of the most influential characters to ever become part of Stormwatch and the best hand to hand fighter in Wildstorm. Considering that universe contains Midnighter and Zealot thats a big achievement!
Well not really much needs to be said. This character has such an iconic origin story and a very interesting array of array of abilities. The one downside to Spider-man is that sometimes the famous "Parker Luck" gets rather annoying and prevents the character from evolving.
Although currently a villain and not a hero he joins the Secret Avengers when Marvel Now! begins so i'm giving him the promotion slightly early! Taskmaster is in fact a very in depth and quite tragic character who is sorely under-used in the Marvel-verse. Hopefully that'll change when Marvel now begins!
I honestly don't know if he should be in my heroes or villains list? -.o I'll put him here for the moment until I make up my mind though because he's awesome!
But in all seriousness she may not have any superpowers but she more than makes up for that with a kick-a$$ attitude an array of weapons and extensive martial arts training.
The scouse Magician from Hellblazer is probably the most badass British character out there. I mean how many people have tricked the Devil and Gabriel then flipped them off!? The answer is this guy!
Student of Zealot and former lover of Mr Majestic. Like fellow characters Zealot and Backlash she is of Kherubim origin and pretty badass with her swords.
Mr O'Hara is the Spider-man of 2099 and is a brilliant creation. He incorpetates everything we love about Spider-man and yet is still his own character!
Got introduced to her via my following John Constantine's ongoing titles. So far I prefer the pre-52 version but the New 52 is growing on me.
Not a character I like in the New 52-verse but in the Wildstorm universe he's a pretty unique creation.
Again this is a charcter i'm not that keen on in the New 52. Wildstorm Zealot on the other hand is awesome!
One of the few Wildstorm characters I still like even in the New 52-verse!
Jason Todd is the best thing to come out of Batman's sidekicks! Yeah I said it! Get out Grayson!
Do I really need a reason for putting the caped crusader on my list? Well here it is "He's the god damn Batman!"
When he's written properly he can be an exceedingly funny and entertaining character to follow, with a very unique outlook. Unfortunately he has had the mishap to fall upon quite a few bad stories.
In my opinion one of the most (if not the most) darkest superhero ever created. The artwork that accompanied Simmons series was incredible (thank you Mr McFarlane) but the stories sometimes felt a but stretched which was a shame because Spawn is truly a great creation.
Pre-52 only. I'm not so keen on the New 52 version.
I got introduced to this character via ASM issues and I found her personality very interesting so I ended up reading her mini-series and enjoyed it immensely.
The current wielder of the Witchblade.
I think people were to quick to judge her when New 52 came out. Which is a shame because Starfire has evolved quite a bit since her debut with an explanation to the slightly "unusual behavior".
The newest and current Spawn. While not as good as his predecessor Jim is still a solid character.
I started to read a few issues of a Hulk and i'm starting to enjoy him as a charatcer so the jolly green giant makes the list!
Although he hasn't officially been in a comic yet the background that we have been given for Gabriel in Last Man Standing is awesome. I can't wait for 2013 when this series actually starts and we get to see him in action!
Love this guy in the comics and on the TV series!
Who doesn't like that armor!?
Baddest Assassin on the block!
Although he is not a hero i'm particularly fond of reading he is the base design for every hero we see today thus he must be in the list as he kick-started the whole superhero craze.
