Due to the fact that I haven't been keeping up with the MU recently, this is outdated. And in no particular order.

List items

  • That is one hell of a theme song...

  • Throughout The Boys, Homelander comes off as a heartless, homicidal sociopath of sorts that knows all too well that he is, essentially, the most powerful being in the country, maybe even the entire world, and exploits the hell out of that fact.

    He also seems to be one of the fewer higher-up superheroes that actually seem to know what's going on. Not the kind of person you can easily pull one over on.

  • I've been a fan of Magik since the first time I saw her in the New Mutants series. She may not be too complex as of yet, I suppose, but she shows promise.

  • The most powerful member of the Fantastic Four, not to mention the most realistically depicted mother I've seen in comics for a long time.

  • I'll always be a Zatanna fan at heart. Something about her personality is incredibly endearing...

  • Because when you're that cool, you don't NEED to make sense.

  • Believe it or not, Colossus is surprisingly deep. I ran across a conversation he had with Shadowcat quite a while back about life and death, and it just stunned me. An artist and all-around nice guy, I think it would be pretty hard NOT to like colossus if you met him in real life.

  • Due to the fact that I haven't been keeping up with the MU recently, this is outdated.

  • Besides being ridiculously fun to read about, Mystique has just enough issues to intrigue me, and she's a fan of Oscar Wilde to boot. A new addition to my list of favourites, but I think I'll be reading about her for a while...

    Or not.

  • She's fun to read about, and has some of the best lines in the series. Her personality contrasts the characters she interacts with so starkly that one can't help but pay attention, and it's hard not to like someone with both power and control.

  • Meggan's a total sweetheart, and I've always had a soft spot for her. There's something about her attitude that's just too CUTE!

  • Franklin is genuinely a really good kid. He's got the compassion and courage necessary to make a great superhero, and he seems friendly enough to work in a team environment. As long as he doesn't get put under too much strain, he seems like he'll end up okay in the long run; as a hero, he'd work best in a team, functioning as the absolute ideal support character (he can alter reality itself, it's kinda like having a multi-tool). I'm really looking forward to seeing what's going to happen with him in the future

  • Reminds me of an old friend.

  • She fits into the oracular role that most precogs fill and ends up being both hard to understand and really cute as well.

  • Dark Reign sold me on this guy. The way they explained his struggle with bipolar disorder is, without a doubt, THE best depiction of mental illness I have seen in comics to date.

  • He has the best comebacks.

  • Classy, strong, passionate, and with an awesome wife to boot.

  • Super-intelligent toddler telling off Jamie Madrox? WIN.
