    Default Favorite Public Domain Characters

    Genre doesn't matter.
    Medium doesn't matter.
    All that matters is that they are public domain!


    Examples:
    Sherlock, Dracula, Cthulhu, Robin Hood, Fighting Yank, Black Bat, Black Terror, Arrow, Catman

    As visible as characters like Black Terror, the Green Lama, and Airboy have always been, I really like the Ace line of characters (Lash Lightning, Magno, etc). For its day, their stories were about as good as anything around.
