    July 20, 2013 11:50 am Of course they HAVE to kill of the Ultimate universe! The Ultimate universe did influence the movie version of the Marvel U, which in turn now influences the normal 616 Marvel universe.
    July 18, 2013 11:44 am Oh! Yeah that makes more sense. Thanks!
    July 18, 2013 11:43 am I really like dthe mask face, but it won't be seen again, I think. What I even liked more was the Morrison redesign, with the big sewn up scars and the bullethole scar on his forehead.
    July 17, 2013 3:26 pm Yeay! Guy Gardner love! He is my no.5 on this list, but my no.1 Green Lantern character. I am extremely sad that Tomasi is not going to write him anymore. He elevated him to such a great level. I would argue that he is almost more important for the last decade of GL comics than Hal! Oh man, what would I give to see him, done right of course, in a movie version.
    July 17, 2013 3:20 pm Oh man, I would like an edit button. I was in a hurry and didn't spellcheck immediately.
    July 17, 2013 3:18 pm What with the no white guys rule? You only list white dudes yourself in the article. Oh and I only do DC characters here, aince the article is about DC and not Marvel. 5. Guy Gardner he is a good guy that gets underestimated. He has a heart of gold and I actually like the way he behaves most of the time, since he is a douchebag, but a funny douchebag, where all of his friends know that its only facade. 4. Wally West pre new 52 of course. He has great powers, but a personality that makes him more likable than Barry. 3. John Constantine, just because of his swagger and confidence. He can do so much with just words and cunning, which is inspiring. The only drawback is that his life turns to shit constantly, but his new 52 incarnation doesn't have that many problems as the Hellblazer one, so thats fine. 2. Clark Kent of course. 1. Bruce Wayne (even if you said that pick a mistery to you, but let me explain why) because he is and was such an inspiration for me, in all stages of my life. I grew up as an orphan and Batman was the first comic character that I saw when I was small. The fact that he was an orphan made me love him from the get go (the awesome costume and ninja skills are a bonus of course). When I was in high school I loved stories (movies, comics, novels) more than everything. I was a very scrawny kid and had no interests in sport. That brought on the wrath of bullies. I was beaten regularly and I am not talking about wedgies here and there, I am talking about real beatdowns, by 5 or 6 kids at the same time, while the teacher was in the room and acted like he did not see anything (my best friend back then got it even worse). When I got home to my parents and told them about that they said its my fault and that I should just do what the other kids do and not stand out with my weird interests. So, yeah, I hated High School. What brought me through that was Batman. I loved that he had the darkest adventures of all the heroes, the baddest villains, and he overcame all of that, just by being the best he could be. That gave me so much strength, I cannot even put it into words. After I quit high school, he gave me the strength to reinvent myself on a physical level and through that I got confidence for the first time. The fact that Bruce could hang out with gods, just because he trained hard made me work hard on my fitness and after I got a job for getting my own place I went back to school and finished it. Now I am on my way to college, just a few years late, but better late than never. It might sound childish, but Bruce helped me a lot with that. I have such a strong bond with that fictional character, that I get really angry when somebody really hates on him, like hearing someone talking bad about ones parent :-) Apart from that he has a lot of flaws, which makes him relatable for me, especially because I share a few of them, like bottling up emotions, being a loner and things like that. So, yeah, I would want to be Bruce,because he is the best of us, he just has to work on expressing his feelings a bit.
    July 17, 2013 2:48 pm Joker??? You would like to be a mass murdering monster, who wears his face as a mask?
    July 15, 2013 12:28 pm I really hate to say it, but still think that Vaughn is extremely overrated. People act like he is the new Alan Moore. Y the last man was good, no doubt about that, even if I think it lost a lot of steam around the middle. But apart from that? I found Runaways pretty mediocre, Ex Machina had a great concept but did nothing with it that made me go wow, his Marvel and DC stuff was hideous and Saga isn't for me, since I find the level of porn in it pretty gratuitous (not because there is homosexual stuff in there, but because it is pornographic). I really don't get it, i am not saying he is bad or anything, but I just don't get the extreme love for his work. I think everyone that is with him nominated for best writer does a lot better work (apart from Seeley, who I don't know well outside from Revival,which is great so far). Personaly I would give it to Joe Hill. As much as I love Waids Daredevil, Fractions Hawkeye and Snyders Batman (which is to say A LOT! All three are great!), I think Joe Hills writing on that series is a notch above almost everything thats getting published in comics right now. Locke&Key is really a masterpiece. I hope Hill stays with comics for quite a bit, even if I also loved all his books so far (haven't finished Nos4a2 yet)!
    July 14, 2013 7:45 am Yes. He also sleeps in his mother of nails contraption, which was such a creepy visual.
    July 14, 2013 7:35 am And don't forget Tomasis Batman and Robin! Its a great book! I really think it could be the best Batman book right now (after Inc. ends), IF Tomasi wouldn't have to follow every single story that Snyder does. So many issues of B&R are reactionary to what happens in Batman or in Inc. Its sad, because the issues where Tomasi can tell whatever story he wants to tell, are really great! Oh and I also really like Snyder, but since Black Mirror his endings have kinda sucked.
