I'm sticking to comic books here, but for the record, if I could include comic strip characters, Charlie Brown is taking the #2 spot.

1.) Spider-Man (Peter Parker)
2.) Captain America (Steve Rogers)
3.) Superman
4.) Iron Man (Tony Stark)
5.) The Incredible Hulk (Bruce Banner) (includes "merged", child-like savage, and Joe Fixit versions)

If I could make Iron Fist and Luke Cage fit into the same spot together, they'd take the #2 position.

Hopefully, I can break down the why's and how's on my list sometime soon.

(also, I just didn't read much DC as a kid. And yes, I like Batman, always thought he was damned cool, but there's parts of me that just go 'naw, that's too much. Dude is just a man.' That's why my favorite stories are seeing him fatigued, broken, exhausted, sick, but pushing through. I HATE the 'Batman is untouchable!' Batman. That's boring as spit to me.

I want to run through a church, shaking a tambourine while doing flips like I was an extra in The Blues Brothers, reading this!

I was thinking back on Batman: TAS and thought about Justice League/Justice League Unlimited... all classic animated series. But seeing Batman go toe-to-toe with a Darkseid or a Brainiac did nothing for me. It just made the villains look lamer IMHO that they couldn't take out some dude just really into science and Crossfit.

The Batman stories I liked more was him fighting that "Mad Bomber" dude - the one that put bombs on remote control cars and the Gray Ghost guest starred. Or taking on "Wormwood" who was a master of death traps. No major psych-hang-ups like his usual foes. (Yeah, they were nuts, just not super colorful ones.) I like those Batman stories more. Same goes for the comics too.

Unless we're talking about Batman: Brave and the Bold. That show was the exception, because those stories were all about "the crazier, the better." I mean, he teamed with Space Ghost and it was awesome.

Sorry, I don't mean to bash anyone that picked Batman for there list. Most people I know would have him on theirs, no question.

Jimmy's post had me on a tangent. Blame him, is what I'm saying here.  Grin

this is harder than it sounds.

Captain America
Hulk
Firestorm
Colossus
I gotta say Spidey in the last spot (although these are in NO order whatsoever)

I grappled with characters like Green Lantern, Power Man/Iron Fist (i also count them as one), Flash, Thor and Silver Surfer. 

Cap and Spidey are on the list because i really identify with not just the hero side of the characters but the secret ID of each.  My personality is an amalgam of Peter Parker and Steve Rogers and their personalities.  I use humor as a sheild like Spidey but I have the guilt and sense of responsibilty of Peter Parker.  I have the "as long as there's life, there's hope" mentality of Steve Rogers and Cap.

The Hulk I have always just thought was cool.

I always thought Firestorms powers and look were super cool and the same with Colossus.

Firestorm


Oh man I forgot about Firestorm.  Easily on my top 5 list from back in my younger days.  Loved it when he joined the League back in the '80's.  That was the height of my love for the character.

The Sentry
Captain Planet
3-D Man
Matter-Eater Lad
Squirrel Girl


Oh... waitaminnit..  I think I'm on the wrong thread...

 Grin

EDIT:  Okay, seriously.....

I'm sticking to comic books here, but for the record, if I could include comic strip characters, Charlie Brown is taking the #2 spot.

1.) Spider-Man (Peter Parker)
2.) Captain America (Steve Rogers)
3.) Superman
4.) Iron Man (Tony Stark)
5.) The Incredible Hulk

I would agree with these (especially Charlie Brown), except perhaps swap Iron Man out for Wonder Woman or Batman.
