Yeah, I discovered the character while looking through ads in The Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide. He was chilling with Bat-mite, and he looked weird and cool.
It was only as an adult that I finally got a chance to read the comics.

Googling bulletin boards...
This is what it looked like?



And for those who don't know Flaming Carrot.

I haven't read any of the new stuff, but I had a subscription to G.I. Joe when I was in preschool and Kindergarten and I learned to read with that comic book. Whether he was a toy first or not, my favorite comic book character is Snake Eyes.

It's always been Batman for me. I know that's probably a really common answer but I've liked him for a long time. Grew up with the 66 series, the Burton and Schumacher films, and Batman: The Animated Series and became a big fan. As I got older he still holds up and has great stories both in comics and on tv/film. Also I'm a big fan of the Bat Family too.

I like a lot of other superheroes but I don't have as much attachment to others. Spider-Man comes somewhat close but I didn't have nearly the same exposure to the character until later on.

or



I haven't read the IDW ROM revival, but I think Marvel's version is one of the best pure superhero comics around.

Re: Your Favorite Comic Book Character?

I've been thinking about this on and off since the topic was originally posted in July and I've had trouble coming up with an answer. X-Men was my first love and like just about every other 12 year old in 1992 I would have said Wolverine was my favorite, but that didn't last long. I kind of love Jean Grey as written by Claremont, but once she was resurrected and more or less became the team mom, she kind of sucked. In fact the more I think about it, the more I realize I just like certain versions of characters and there's not really one that stands above the rest.

Death from Sandman is the most likeable. But I have to choose Batman. Writers have been making Batman stories for eighty years, and they can still find interesting things to do with the character.

Re: Your Favorite Comic Book Character?

For favorite superheroes it's Batman and Spider-man.

Batman has probably the most well-written stories of DC and Marvel's characters.
When the '89 movie came out my parents bought me Tales of the Dark Knight: Batman's First Fifty Years. All his adventures looked awesome, even the crazy sci-fi ones that supposedly are so bad.

And for Spider-man, I can read just about any issue from any era and enjoy it. Peter Parker is easy to relate to, great rogues gallery, great supporting cast, and I liked how it felt like this great saga unfolding. With DC they reboot every so often. With Spider-man though, events had lasting effects. Peter went to college, dropped out, got married, his friend Harry got married too and started a family. Then Harry went crazy and died. Felicia moved on and got with Flash Thompson. Aunt Mary passed away, but revealed to Peter that she knew all along that he was Spider-man.
