Just a little thread because i love superheros and am ALWAYS curious as to why people love which ones or hate which ones.
My favorite: Spider-Man
Why: Well its because Spider-man is pretty flawed. Dude has bad luck and is not perfect at all. If he is not trying to save someone, his girlfriend is getting killed by his arch-nemesis or his arch nemesis just broke 5 other villains out of prison and they wanna go use the NYC as a playground. Plus, i can have an emotional connection to the character. unlike....SOME..."Heroes"
My least favorite: Superman
Why: Superman is not flawed. AT ALL. NOBODY can emotionally connect to the character. He can do anything so there is no room for an exciting story unless one of his super-pals are in the mix or, if hes suddenly overwhelmed by kryptonite. Which is the most retarded and over-used macguffin in all of story-writing history. I mean sure he started the superhero craze, and ill respect him for that. But i am pretty hard-pressed to find a reason to like the guy. The Big Blue Boyscout pisses me off.
So tell me guys! Who do you love? Who do you hate? Why?
