Comic Book Heroes

This week I'm doing my Top 5 Favorite Comic Book Heroes. Are you a comic book nerd like me? If so, feel free to share your list.

1. Dr. Strange (While other superheroes are dealing with mere supervillains and otherwise corporeal bad guys, Dr. Strange, the Sorcerer Supreme, is busy doing battle with the nameless horrors that constantly seek to swallow up our universe in chaos. By the Seven Rings of Raggadorr!)

2. The Phantom (The original masked crimefighter, literally. Kit Walker was the first to don a spandex suit and mask to fight international crime from his base in Africa.)

3. Wolverine ('nuff said)

4. Rogue (What's not to love? A southern belle with super strength, the ability to fly, nigh invulnerability, and the unfortunate ability to suck the life force from people by touching them. Rogue was one of my favorite characters from the X-Men world. Unfortunately she got gypped in the movies.)

5. Shadowcat (Most people remember Jubilee as the X-Men's resident teenager thanks to the cartoon. However, I always liked Kitty Pryde who was much less annoying and easier to relate to. She also has an awesome power: the ability to phase through solid objects.)

I really dig Dr. Strange's fashion sense. He's probably the best-dressed superhero ever...

I approve of this list. :D

Wayne, I wish I could pull of a Dr. Strange wardrobe. He is quite the snappy dresser. Much better than skin-tight spandex.

hahah You totally should. And I agree.. He has serious class...

A nice list.. Rogue, Dr Strange and Shadowcat receive too little attention despite their incredible powers.

Substitute Wolverine and Phantom with Magneto and Martian Manhunter and that would be my list :)
