    No love for Ross Andru's Spider Man?

    And I second George Perez's Avengers

    I love Andru with Spider-Man and Superman, it's just that I never think of him before others.

    Probably the toughest character. Colan, Buscema, and Everett were all so great. Unlike some other creators, Everett doesn't just get a notch because he did it first, it's also difficult to say he wasn't best, especially given how far ahead of his time he was.

    I also love Andru's Spider-Man, but like Kuwagaton his version is not the first that sprigs to my mind.

    I am curious about how other people see a few other characters:

    Iron Fist - I put Kerry Gammill for my choice of iconic Power Man and Iron Fist artist, because he really made their friendship come alive. However, when it comes to Iron Fist alone, I think Byrne really perfected the original Iron Fist costume, particularly making the eyes not just Spider-Man transplants, and making the deep-shadowed green parts of the costume contrast with the virtually detail-free yellow areas; however, I know for many Aja is the IF artist, while some have really taken to Kaare Andrews' recent version. Would anyone like to say which version is THE version for them?

    Also, Black Panther: I found his look kind of boring until I saw Kirby's rendition, which remains how I think of the character, but has Kirby been supplanted by later artists for others?

    Alex Ross' Doctor Strange, if only for how he visually portrays Strange's magic.

    Bill Sienkiewicz I feel had a big part in why Moon Knight and New Mutants stood out, thanks to his visually striking abstract art that you rarely see in comics. I mean, just LOOK at it:

    I'm really torn between whether I think of Jack Kirby's or John Buscema's version when I think of the Silver Surfer.
    Pretty much this, although we differ with respect to Elektra (Frank Miller). As for Silver Surfer, for me it's John Buscema over Kirby. I know many choose Ron Lim here, but I never really took to Ron's version of SS or Nova (Frankie Raye).

    Lastly, add Ernie Chan for Conan.

    Yes, the most iconic for me is Mark Texeira during Priest era



    Though as late of wish the MU would adopt the MCU look because lately artists have gotten lazy with drawing to T'Challa and Making him look essentially like a Shadow with eyeballs. So in recent times my favorites have been

    Kenneth Rocafort:



    And Daniel Acuna:



    Texeira for laying the ground work for BPs new look, Rocaforts for the detail to his face and habit, and Acuna for incorporating the MCU look which is suoer badass

    My pick would be this rendition of Iron Man from JRJR/Layton:

    Totally agree. But just for the sake of argument, I'll just go ahead and choose Lim (who draws both Silver Surfer & Thanos greatly, IMHO):

    Definitely agree. I really like his work from when he returned to Marvel during the 1970's:

    LOL! Totally agree, CaptCleghorn. However, I've recently become a fan of Declan Shalvey's Mr. Knight:

    Agreed. He's great when drawing Marvel's Trinity:

    Totally agree. Everett's Namor is classic (also, Everett's Thor is pretty swell):

    Totally agree. Ditko's Spidey is legendary:

    While I have a nostalgic fondness for Walt Simonson's Thor, I prefer Oliver Coipel's Thor.

    And definitely Ron Lim's Silver Surfer. So sleek, so shiny!
