  1. Although tempted to go with Blincible, my favorite character is far more interesting for anyone to admit: Booster Gold. One of the first series that I was introduced to in comics was Justice League, which eventually became JLI and JLE, by Giffen, DeMatteis, and Maguire. Booster Gold was humorous and overall a joke, but there was always this hidden, deeper sense of camaraderie. Then, during DC's 52, the writers came to show that there really was more to Booster than what people saw. Ultimately, this led into what has to be one of my favorite series of all-time: Booster Gold (2007). In those pages Geoff Johns and eventually Dan Jurgens presented a fully matured Booster who is revealed to be like the Doctor from Doctor Who, which was such a great concept for a time traveling super-hero. Sadly, after this series was handed back to Giffen and DeMatteis it became a horrible book because they dismissed all of the character development that had come before and turned him back into a fool (not cool, especially after the issue where we see him going back to see Ted Kord's funeral and having that great internal monologue about how just because super-heroes are viewed as gods doesn't mean they have to act like that). Anyway, sorry for the long answer, but I've been writing a paper and I can't stop the words. Hahaha.

  2. My favorite comic book character is hands down Spider-Man. Since before I even knew what comics were, I loved Spidey. The exciting stories that played out on my tv, the flashy levels of the video games I watched my brother play, the sick threads that came with Wall Crawler pj's and Halloween costumes. Growing older I began looking into the character more and realizing that not only Spider-Man but Peter Parker were the most relatable characters I've ever come across. Peter had a life outside his mask. The job, the girls, Aunt May, Uncle Ben. I made real life connections left and right. Pete's morals and way of thinking became my own. Essentially, he helped me grow up. At this point in my life, aside from the web slinging and passion for science, its safe to say me and Pete are the same person =D
