Re: Favorite DC heroes EXCLUDING Batman?
I am more of a Marvel guy, but I do have my share of DC favorites.
I used to hate Superman as a kid, but I've grown to appreciate him more as an adult. I guess it has something about him being the ultimate symbol of goodness. I don't know, it feels good, and it is a nice contrast to Batman.
Love the Green Lantern and all the powers he has, and I love all the different colored rings corps that have developed from the premise as well. Hal Jordan is the one I know the best and am most familiar with, but I like Jon Stewart alot too.
Wonder Woman is a really cool super heroine. I keep hoping she gets proper movie treatment.
And I have become a huge fan of The Question, largely because of his role from the Justice League Unlimited show. I had never even heard of him before that show, and once I saw how awesome he was, I couldn't get enough of him.
Speaking of The Question, if I were going to throw the Watchmen into this, I would definitely throw in someone , Rorschach (who was partially based on The Question). It is really hard to consider any of the Watchmen heroes because the whole story is about deconstructing superheroes and presenting them as flawed beings. So to that end, most of them are unlikeable, pathetic, or have God complexes. Rorschach falls into that as well, but at the end of the story, he is the only one that stays true to his convictions, and (without giving away the ending), I personally thought he was right and felt he was the only true hero of the bunch, or at least the closest thing to it. Plus his character and everything he does is just awesome throughout the story.
