Like I could let this question go?
'Avid' sees to be a pretty good term for my reading relationship with comics right now and perhapts to a lesser extent over the last 10(?) years or so. Now that I have job security I can afford to indulge my hobby a little more, and quite frankly I love it. :D
Favourites favourites... Hmm. Let's see. Now whilst most of you know that I adore Deadpool/Wade Wilson to a borderline unhealthy extent, his name isn't the first to pop up when someone asks me about a superhero. He can be a hero sometimes (he's saved the world and everything), he can also be an utter villain when you turn the next page, but more often than not he's a deeply flawed wiseass jerk and that's why I love him. He's not, however, the one I'd want watching my back.
Yup - the answer's in my icon. Spider-Man. Why? Because as much as I still have a huge soft spot for Supes, Bats, Cap, She-Hulk, hell - Wolverine (I could go on for a while), none of them make me care quite as much. Spidey is my hero, because Peter Parker is too. ♥
