Favourite characters as of the end of 2011

With 2011 being an excellent year for comics, I picked up a few new favourites along the way and I felt like sharing them.

Hope you enjoy!

List items

  • No surprise here eh? Haha. Now, I know his current on-going isn't great, I'm really loving what Grant Morrison is doing with the character and his origins.

  • I honestly never thought that Aquaman would land this high on my list, but leave it to Johns to make Aquaman a badass.

  • Dan Slott has been doing excellent things with Spidey over the past year and he finally got the treatment he deserved.

  • Man oh man, has Kaine ever changed over the last half of the year. Now cured of his disease and enjoying a new life, I can't wait to see where they take Kaine.

  • As much as I like Wally better, Francis Manapul has really drawn me in with his superb run of the Flash so far.

  • Wow, just wow. Scott Snyder has really done wonders with the Dark Knight since the New 52 has launched. He brings out a new side of Batman that we've never seen before and a villain that pushes Bruce to his limits and beyond.

Superman is always my top DC choice, too.

I've always liked Aquaman so it's good to see him ranked so high on someone else's list.

@PowerHerc: Yeah, I feel that Aquaman never got the full respect he deserved and Johns is really doing him wonders now. He's a spectacular character.

Cool list. I think barry stands too much in the shadow of Wally.

@NerdsFTW: Depends on how you look at it, but yes, Wally has become a fan favourite over the years.

Haven't kept up with Kaine too much but I agree with all the other choices. Barry and Aquaman have reclaimed their former glory and Superman, Batman and Spider-Man are in a period of blissful reading atm.

@Lvenger: Indeed! I've recently picked up all the issues of Nightwing and caught up with series and it's pretty fantastic as well!

@Deranged Midget: Everyone's raving about Nightwing it seems. Dick's another character's who had good treatment as Batman and Nightwing.
