Jason. I feel like people identify hockey masks more with him now than the actual sport.

That’s tough, but I’d go with Myers by a hair

Jason's. Michael is awesome and Halloween great, but Jason's mask is almost synonimous with the slasher genre.

One is a generic hockey mask. The other is literally William Shatner's face.

Holy shit!!! That's for real? As in Captain Kirk's death mask from Star Trek?

Jason. He's basically the face of slasher movies.

Jason hasn't been on the big screen since 09 and we are already getting 2 more Halloween movies on deck. with the pending legal battle we probably won't get Jason back for awhile. Give me Michael any day, the Friday series was always just the sleazy knockoff anyway.

without Michael there would be no Jason. also Jason didn't even get the Hockey mask until the 3rd movie. Michael's mask is scarier because of it's blankness and the viewer can see anyone on it.

It is! And it gets better: apparently Shatner has been Trick or Treating in the mask IRL! What a cool guy :)

@eichholtz: The question isn't "who inspired who" or "which came first" . The question is, which mask is more iconic, and it's Jason's. Whenever someone wears a hockey mask for a costume, it is because of Jason. It is in the horror Zeitgeist now.

Jason by far, the first designs were the bests, such as the one in the image, it's just a hockey mask, but those traits, such as the color of the mask, the ole style or appearance, a bit yellowish with some cracks, I mean, it's damn creative, it suits the 40's-60's-70's-80's & 90's, class and dedication, the sixth sense how to reach the public and impact the public with something so casual.

Michael Myers easily. The William Shatner mask converted spray painted white. I own many of them. As well as Jason hockey masks but I don’t see them being more iconic
