Favorite Superhero? (in Off-topic)
January 19 2007 3:51 PM EST
Well, me and OB got to debating and I argued that the coolest superhero was The Flash and he said he believed that Green Lantern was the best. So, who's your favorite comic superhero? It can't be Spiderman because well... because no one likes Spiderman. :P
same answer as before...Famke...

I don't believe it. I know it.
Green Lantern OWNS.

As a kid growing up in the 1970's my favourite superhero was Wonder Woman :)

Luke Cage (Marvel)
Ryu (Street Fighter)
I'm sure there's more! ;)

Lynda Carter. Ah. Now that takes me back. Wonderful.
Thanks G. :D

Oh puh-leez, GL is so lame. Green boots, white gloves? Total failure.
The Flash is so awesome. Super speed, intangability, time travel, ability to "steal speed" from anything, speed-reading, speed-thinking, speed-talking, and best of all... THE ABILITY TO CREATE HIS COSTUME OUT OF PURE SPEED ENERGY. And what an awesome costume it is... much better than green boots/white gloves.

Just barely. But that "barely" enough allows him to time travel, create gusts of wind, etc. Superman hasn't been able to become intangible because of his speed or run faster than the speed of light. And besides, The Flashes could easily steal Superman's kinetic energy and momentum if they wanted to, which would increase their speed by that much, and would completely stop his movement. Superman is probably my second favorite superhero. But then again, he does wear his underwear on the outside.
When did the Flash get his powers buffed from just the ability to run really fast? o_O

Bah. Ulquiorra has to resort to badly-drawn fanart in order to make Green Lantern look bad - as for how powerful GL is, I think this cover from when Hal Jordan destroyed and remade the DC Universe explains it all:
DC Superheroes are sooooo lame! Give me a Marvel "flawed" superhero any day!
My favorites growing up were Thor, The Hulk, Iron Man, Ghost Rider and Punisher, and hey! I have always liked Spiderman!!!

oh dear, the comic geek in me that I thought I left behind has just resurfaced at the sight of a George Perez drawing. I'd know that style anywhere, even though I think I was more interested in getting drunk and chasing girls at that time. Or was that getting girls and chasing drunks?
January 19 2007 5:04 PM EST
mine was Ryu too playing Street fighter on the sega was awesome. =)
January 19 2007 5:16 PM EST
It's not badly drawn fan-art. That's the depicture of Hal Jordan in Superman the Animated Series. And I think that cover portrays him as Parallax, which means he isn't Green Lantern, right? And as for that cover, so what? There was a machine made by Alexander Luthor Jr. that created worlds infinitely. Superboy-Prime punched the walls of his pocket universe and the resulting waves altered time in different universes. Destroying a universe isn't particularly amazing, especially since he still needs to recharge his ring every night. The Speed Force is described as the source of all kinetic energy, which means if Hal destroyed it, he would have completely been frozen in time. Since that means the Speed Force isn't destroyed, The Flash could always retreat to it while Hal goes on his universal rampage. Or, if he wanted to, The Flash could travel anywhere back in the past and destroy Hal when he was a baby or something.

Iron Man/War Machine, Captain America, Captain Planet, Silver Surfer, and Gambit for sure.
January 19 2007 5:23 PM EST
Yes, I forgot to include Spawn. But boy the movie was awful.

I'd continue to argue my point with you, OpVines, but I know how stubborn you are - it'd just be another Pirates v. Ninjas
type discussion, and I don't feel like going there. I agree to disagree (but GL is still the greatest).
Strange thing is, around here nobody ever reads comics. I have yet to lay my eyes on at least one of these books...Or an amateur of the genre. Of course, I could just live in a bubble and not see what's going on :p
Now, I've heard about and seen pretty pathetic attempts to : commercialize this phenomenon here, such as Capitaine Quebec and Captain Canuck on the web, but I wonder, why is there such a disinterest in superheroes here?
Anyways, I was just trying to point out I can't base myself on the books to form an opinion. We do however have a couple tv shows and the only heroes I know are the most basic ones...Spiderman, Batman and Superman.
Choosing from these three, i'd have to go with Spiderman. Dunno, he just looks to me like he is more human than the other two, almost a normal Joe, you know, only with the ability to shoot spider webs :p
Batman has no super-powers whatsoever, and i'm not a fan of the whole ''dark and mysterious hero'' theme around him.
And well, Superman is just TOO super.
My favorites were FLASH, the hulk,fantastic 4 and spiderman but I'm not into tieing people up.
January 19 2007 5:51 PM EST
Yeah, I agree to disagree too, even though The Flash could pummel GL a ton of times before GL even realizes he's been hit once.
January 19 2007 6:04 PM EST
There are arguements like this all over the net
and most of the time (if not all the time) popularity wins,
last time i checked batman is the most popular? which in turn means he can beat every other superhero... lol...
January 19 2007 6:24 PM EST
I don't know why, but I always liked Rogue from the X-Men.
They really gave that character a lot of depth especially after she stole Mrs. Marvel's powers.
January 19 2007 6:27 PM EST
Did she ever get her own book?
January 19 2007 6:46 PM EST
Actually according to the superhero countdown on VH1, Spiderman is the most popular superhero, followed by Superman. So I guess if you're in that kind of mindframe then Spiderman beats all other superheroes.
Although the Ultimate Thor is a really great character.
Actually a lot of the Ultimates are. The Ultimate Hulk is brilliant. ;)
Hi im Jake
January 19 2007 8:58 PM EST
batman would beat you all think about it you all got weakness but batman hes a lone ranger and he will always be he make a gun that could shoot out kryptonight and kill super man done he could make a suit that would make him as fast as the flash and hes got a black cape
And what did we learn about capes from watching "The Incredibles?"
January 19 2007 10:24 PM EST
OB, is Green Lantern using Ethereal Chains in that picture? And wouldn't it take a big one to nuke Superman's ST? :P
January 19 2007 10:25 PM EST
yea ulquiorra - im a bit out dated i guess.. but i remember a few years ago it was batman.. they make up like incredible amounts of crap just so he wins
hahahaha @ spiderman.. i wonder what they'll say "he dodges anything with spider-sense"
January 19 2007 10:30 PM EST
"but batman hes a lone ranger"
Hmmm... What happened to Robin?
Hi im Jake
January 19 2007 10:33 PM EST
robin doesnt count he is just just just a .................................well a side kick and who needs a side kick what did he really do
January 19 2007 10:33 PM EST
They broke up, he was seeing someone else
January 19 2007 10:34 PM EST
Well, in the DC Universe, anything that travels faster than the speed of light will eventually find themselves in the Speed Force. All The Flashes teamed up to drag Superboy-Prime into the Speed Force hoping it would kill him, and the only reason why he survived was well... because he's freaking Superboy-Prime, and it took 2 Supermans to defeat him. So even if Batman did find a way to get a suit which allowed him to travel faster than The Flash, he would really be committing suicide. But I think Batman is the least favorite of my heroes. He's really corny. And emo. And goth. "Oh look at me my parents died so now I'll fight crime and be Mr. Scary Dark Knight even though I don't have powers!"
January 20 2007 2:52 AM EST
batman knows how to beat flash
in one release batman developed a "vibrating" bullet which kept flash in a constant epileptic state...
sounds lame aye... lol... but true this was published
January 20 2007 7:15 PM EST
Wolverine is uber.
Gambit is the best of the X-Men, exploding cards, great martial artist and the coolest of cool,
January 20 2007 9:52 PM EST
I liked the original Green/White Power Ranger too. I liked how the Green Ranger had a dagger that he played as a flute. And how the White Ranger had a dagger with a talking tiger pommel.
My favorite X-Man of all time is easily Magneto. He's just so frickin' awesome.

<<(Note to self: MUST resist the temptation to say KISS>>
Angela or Jade (from the Spawn comics)?
Apocalypse (or maybe Venom or Carnage)?
G-Force (from Battle of the Planets)?

wow... the spell checker recognizes Poke Mon... sad...
January 30 2007 5:01 AM EST
I change my mind. I think Green Arrow's the coolest superhero, even though he has no powers. :o
January 30 2007 3:11 PM EST
AND he's friends with Green Lantern!
January 30 2007 4:14 PM EST
hehe, always acting on impulse, are we?
George W. Bush. It IS a power to be so ridiculous, is it not?

His ridiculousness borders on genius.
