    Default Favorite comic book hero and villain excluding DC/Marvel

    Pretty much what the title says. Excluding the giants that are DC and Marvel, who are your favorite heroes and villains not from one of the two major comic book publishers.




    Hero: For me, it's gotta be Max Damage. I know this particular hero isn't the most popular but I truly love his origin story and appreciate the unique nature of his powers. I would normally say the Tick since I love his humor but for a serious hero, it's Max Damage for me.

    Villain: Saint of Killers. Nuff said.

    Isn't Vertigo a part of the DC universe ?

    Ironically for me while my favorite DC and Marvel characters are all high tier my favorites outside the big 2 are street level tier

    Black Hood, MLJ
    The Shadow, Dark Horse
    The Phantom, Frew Publications/King Syndicate

    And Dark Nebula, Cyclone comics (there had to be ome high tier in there)

    Favourite Comic Book Hero (no Marvel/DC): Black Dragon, Dragon/Tiger Gate. Something to be said about a funny, decent fellow who isn't super-serious (and yet gets pretty hardcore when the situation warrants it), who isn't 'the fastest guy who hits hardest', whose martial art style is completely based around tanking stuff, and who is interested in a lot more than just 'getting better at Kung Fu'.

    Edit: Alternately Vanye, I suppose (Gate of Ivrel).

    Favourite Comic Book Villain (again, no M/DC): The Invincible Swordsman/Ancestor, Drunken Fist and Dragon/Tiger Gate. Ancestor beats up Mary Sue/Gary Stu characters and looks good doing it. ^_^ He also thinks big, kills other villains who annoy him, and occasionally helps small children if he's in a good mood and doesn't need them for some nefarious purpose.

    Default Favorite comic book hero and villain excluding DC/Marvel

    The dark Knight

    - By night he's secretly a dark vigilante, defender of the downtrodden and oppressed.
    - By day a wealthy billionaire playboy, can mix with the powerful, elite, corrupt upper class
    - To survive, he reinvents himself and takes the name and theme from; small dark nocturnal survival animal, as symbol and power totem.
    - Dons a black themed Mask, cape, costume, etc...
    - No super or supernatural powers, just a fit human, self-made, dedicated and trained to peak agility, skill and mastery of his body and weapons.
    - As well uses as his intellect, cunning, and fear as weapons.
    - A "utility belt" full of weapons, arsenal of his time, and some new inventions.
    - In his quest he is both pursued/hunted by criminals, and the authorities alike.
    - Leaves behind signature emblem recognizable to all.
    - Lives in mansion above, to Secret lair bellow with a secret entrance through clock, book case fire place etc...
    - Where he keeps his gear and his impossibly fast, sleek, black ride. Fastest most maneuverable in the land.
    - Forever loyal helper, and sole confidant and ally, he's known since childhood, and helps him in his quest.

    - Main nemesis/villain whose face is "scarred" horribly for life, becomes obsessed, blames and peruses him endlessly.






    I'dd add the Shadow and Phantom .

    But do you HAVE that perspective, buried somewhere deep within?

    Embrace your inner robot, so that Magnus may chop it out and free you!

    I was about to comment on filthy robots some more, but as always, Magnus Robot Fighter, our mini skirt and go go boots wearing lord and saviour, clearly resolved the situation in his usual style.
