If you read any kind of comics you're obviously going to have a favourite character.

Batman. He could be stopped by a single bullet. But good luck with that.

If this includes Manga then i'm going to say Rock Lee from Naruto, because he's got a lot of heart and soul in him and i like that with a character.

See, the UK is still only on Graphic novel 14. Huuurrry Uuuuuup T_T I wanna see where the story goes. I was downloading pages from a website a while ago but i've decided to actually buy the novels now, just for the fact that i want to own them.

Batman. He's smart. He's got a cool costume, gadgets and vehicles, plus lots of money. He knows martial arts and has good detective skills.

Hm. I'd probably have to say Devi from Jhonen Vasquez' 'I feel sick: A book about a girl' Mainly because she's an interesting character and every time I read the comic, I understand a bit more about her.
Manga-wise, I'd probably say.. The Cast of Ouran *snortlaugh* they're all hilarious in their own way, especially Tamaki and Hikaru

My favourite comic book character HAS to be Miyamoto Usagi from Stan Sakai's Usagi Yojimbo, which is based around anthropomorphic animals living in Feudal Japan( which probably sounds rather silly, but seriously, I love this series ;_; ).

To keep myself short as I'm prone to rambling about Usagi: He's a bunny ronin who kicks all manner of medieval Japanese butt, ranging from your everyday bandit gang to your not-so-everyday obakemono, whilst still retaining that friendly, lovable personality he has. He's just awesome. ^^

He appears in TMNT sometimes, doesn't he? If so, then yes, I agree with you <_<

It has changed a bunch. Last time I bought a comic I really loved Deadpool. Antiheroes ftw.

Other than that I follow the weekly Naruto scanlation. Yeah yeah, I know some of you are going to say manga doesn't count, but a comic is a comic imo. And for that series, I don't care how much it has been raped by the American market, Kakashi is still my favorite ninja badass.

thank you for liking the manga instead of the anime. seems everyone i know loves the anime and hates the manga when OBVIOUSLY IT SHOULD BE THE OTHER WAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
*very small rant over*

i would definatively have to say wolfwood from trigun, though it's pretty close between him and vash. but wolfwood wins because of the scene when he dies and because he's got a giant cross gun thingamajigger.

edit-oh sweetness, i should have read the posts past digi's. deadpool is awesomeness.

Rock Leeeeee~ He should what all men aspire to be like - honestly~ He has strength, honor, a hard working attitude, nice shiny hair and he knows how to treat a lady. 8D A perfect gent! He works so hard despite the fact he may never be as strong as his ninjutsu-using comrades... he's wonderful! *o* Mitsuu! You're totally right! The manga is waaaaay better than the anime! Like with Fullmetal Alchemist, Bleach and One Piece~! Anime = NO manga = WIN. Crappy filler arcs are crappy. I totally tuned out with the Bount arc in the Bleach anime... but the manga hogod I can't stop reading. *_*

Another good one, L from Death Note. Bwaaahaha~ Not much explanation is needed. XD He's just... L...

I'm really beginning to like Haruhi from Host Club - it's so nice to see a no sh!t kind of female character in a manga who doesn't go all googly-eyed over every pretty boy she sees (and trust me, there's a lot of pretty boys in Host Club ahaha). Her wit is so acerbic and quick yet she remains honest and level headed and just a nice person despite being poor and in debt to the Host Club and suchwhat. I like her, she's cool. ^.^

Oosaki Nana from...well, Nana. She's pretty much everything I like in a character. ^__^ Cool, stylish, dark hidden secrets but still very realistic and believable.

I've also really started to like Miwako from ParaKiss, which is strange since she's not at all the type of character I usually like. *total Ai Yazawa fangirl*

i guess i shouldn't be too harsh on the naruto anime though because mainly it's the english translation of it that's really bad. don't get me wrong, the japanese version sucks as well, but the english is completely horrendous. cartoon network is playing a naruto marathon right now and i decided to see if the fight between naruto and orochimaru(one of my favourite fights in the manga) was at least somewhat decent. well, it was going along with orochimaru about to attack sasuke and then woosh, the pointy throw-y thingamajiggers hit the tree right above him. then naruto appears and says, "it looks like... i came just in time!" and i really couldn't watch any more. the line's bad enough, but then they put in that pause which doesn't make any sense.

wow, i kind of ranted. seems i do that when talking about this subject. it was kind of off-topic, so... WOLFWOOD FTW!!

I prettymuch watched the anime exclusively up till the end of part 1. Then they started on the filler arc and it was too painful to watch. I started reading the manga exclusively from that point (only watched a couple of shippuden episodes, and while better than the filler arc, isnt anywhere near as good as the manga). I almost can't wait for the filler arc to come stateside so I can see how woefully horrendous it is.

Rorschach.

A short, smelly, poor, ugly little man with a black-and-white moral perspective and psychological complexes a-plenty, surrounded by a world that loathes him, and he becomes the terror of the underworld. Batman's got nothing on him.

Surprisingly my favorite character comes from an online comic called NOWHERE GIRL. Jamie Adler, a girl looking for her place in the world. Sadly the series is only holding two chapters and is as of right now at a stand still. Though I'm trying to convince Justine Shaw to make some more lovely additions.

Glad to hear there are others who love Deadpool. He's my second favorite comic character. You have to love how he breaks the fourth wall on a regular basis. I don't even care if he's a Deathstroke rip-off, Deadpool is one in a million.

Obelix cause he is super strong and funny.
Asterix cause he is short and cute.
Tintin cause he is smart and adventureous.
W.I.T.C.H guardians cause the are an awsome team and great friends.
there isn't much comics available, there's also Batman, Superman, Sonic and Mickey mouse. Nope no marvel comics here ;-;

For me it's probably Nemesis and Torquemada from Nemesis the Warlock. I mean, on one hand you have an alien who belongs to a species called "Warlock" who's trying to protect other aliens from the humans who are led by Torquemada, a cruel dictator who wishes to exterminate all alien life. EVEN IF IT'S CUTE.

I love that comic, and I love those two characters.

God, that's tough actually.

Spider Jerusalem from Transmetropolitan is pretty awsome. Also, Hellboy is great too (and so much better in the comics than the film.)

Manga wise, Eury Evans from Immortal Rain is pretty cool.

Manga-wise: Hinata Hyuuga! She's shy, timid, quiet, and does that finger-poking thing - very much like myself as a child. XD And her admiration for Naruto is adorable! The fact that underneath the gentle exterior is a fiercely determined spirit.. she's very inspiring! :3

And yes, Rock Lee rawks as well! LOL

Non-manga: I couldn't think of any particular faves until d3vilcat mentioned Asterix! Definitely him and Obelix! Nothing like a good ol' legionary-bashing brouhaha, or even a romp over smelly fish.. classic stuff!

Err anyways I'd say Sonic for Comic Books, cause He was my childhood hero... heh I could still remember nagging mum and dad to get me sonic cd... anyway, and Koiuke from BECK for Manga, cause I love his (english singing) voice and he really made the tele-caster look bad ass.

Yesss... I'd forgotten about Asterix and Obelix... Though I have to say that I prefer reading the Asterix comics in French. The translations... HORRIFY me.

And with that, I'll add another French comic character that I doubt any of you have heard of since I don't remember seeing his comic translated: Gaston Lagaffe. He's basically a guy working at a comic book company, and his job is to answer fan-mail. The only problem is that he always procrastinates or almost puts others in danger when working on inventions of his. XD

Gaston! I know of him, dad has all of the albums that were translated to Swedish.

KiloTango, I agree. Several of my favourite comic characters are from Valhalla, an excellent Danish series based on Norse mythology but with several little twists and changes to make things interesting. IMO it deserves more fans.

O_O Neokairi you read 2000AD? I grew up with that comic Nemmy was my fave comic hero as a kid along with the ABC warriors. I have all the original comics from the 80's. Purity was badass, but... she really needed to seek advice with her stylist. A lot of the way i often portray my U.V comes from Nemmy too. Gah i'm so happy someone else knows of him ^_^ Also... Deadlock reminds me of Jackle *snort* i loved how they crossed over ABC warriors and Nemesis.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nemesis_the_Warlock


For those not in the know ABC Warriors= BRITISH TRANSFORMERS.... just without the transforming part. Machines that are funny, sexy and give Prime a run for his money. The stories were EPIC.

Man those comics were what made me love comics.

Yesss. I do read 2000AD. The only problem is that you can't really find anything from it over here (at least not where comics are available to me) so I'm having trouble finishing the Nemesis series or even read more of the ABC Warriors. ;__;

And Purity's hair always makes me go "Wha...?"

Just to say, the best 2000AD character is Nikolai Dante. (From the series of the same name)

He just is.

No really.

You can get some of his stuff in collected books, but some of them are hard to find. It's SF but based on Russian empire stuff, he's the bastard child of a nobleman and the queen of the pirates and is just the most swashbuckling awesome thing ever. :D

Look, he's just COOL!

There NEEDS to be a film. It would be SO good.

If i get some time off i'll try to scan them one day- though i seen a Nemesis 'collection' book while i was at a comic convention in 2003, so search for it on amazon or something. I really wanted to read it but the guy was being annoying. ALSO the stall was selling figureines of him, and also D.R & Quinch (another great series from 2000AD). It was looooovely.

Non manga-

Nightcrawler from X-Men: I admire his personality and the fact that he doesn't personally hate the very people who persecute him for something that is literally out of his control (when all of us surely wouldn't be as forgiving).

Batman: He's a hero, he's cool, and not a boy scout like Superman.

Sonic the Hedgehog: What can I say, he's my childhood hero.

Manga:

Rock Lee, Naruto, and Hinata: All of these characters were considered failures in their universe, but managed to prove everyone wrong. Rock Lee is just charming, hilarious, and inspires me to try harder at the things I do; Hinata is just sweet and I love seeing her improve; Naruto... is Naruto and will be Hokage!
Other favorites include Kakashi-sensei, Gai-sensei, Yondaime, Haku, Shino, and Shikamaru.

Monkey D. Luffy: He inspires me just like Lee... only he's more of a lovable idiot.

Ah... my favorite comic book character. I actually have 2, no one mind me.

The first is Syaoran from Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles. He is himself, he will do everything he can to protect the girl he loves, he's strong, he's strong-willed, he's smart, and he's basically considered one of the more popular manga characters out right now. Every girl wants a guy like him, and every guy wants to be him. Or... at least the readers. If you haven't read it, flip through the first and second volume and see how you end up liking it. It's a very good manga and it doesn't disappoint. While I don't want to be like Syaoran, a friend of mine likened me to him before I even heard of the manga. Oh, and if you're wondering, it's made by CLAMP, the guys who did Card Captor Sakura, Magic Knight Rayearth, X, xxxHolic and a few more. Even better, I think if you search oyu can find like... the first 5 episodes on the internet? that's like 2 mangas in one.

Second is Haruhi from Bisco Hatori's Ouran High School Host Club. I just love her character, it's charming, strong, yet well reserved. She can take care of herself and she has no gender identity what-so-ever. It's quite easy to relate to her. She's just awesome in her own way. If you never read host club or, better yet, seen the anime... YOU MUST WATCH IT O____O

And those are my favs :lol:
