Because I don't read actual comic books issue-to-issue, I can't comment on long-running franchises. Also I haven't read nearly everything I think I should in this category. Still, of what I do know, this is what I like.



    1. Can't stand Superman. Okay, the first two Reeve movies were classic and the Timm/Dini animated series had it's moments, but I don't really find him an interesting character compared to the others I listed.
