Your Favorite Marvel Character

Who is your favorite Marvel character and why? It could be a hero or a villain. Mine is the "Merc with a Mouth", Deadpool, for no other reason than he is the funniest and most entertaining to watch in action.

Some say that the age of chivalry is past, that the spirit of romance is dead. The age of chivalry is never past, so long as there is a wrong left unredressed on earth.

Damned hard question. So very many choices....

At the moment I'd go with Doc Strange.

I used to be a huge X-Men fan, but more recently I've become more interested in Marvel's space characters. I really dig Richard Rider as Nova.

If written correctly, Marvel's best character will always be Captain America.

That said, I have always loved Nightcrawler. Spidey is up there as is the obscure MoonKnight.

Of all time?  Captain America- even though I didn't have a large number of his comics (most of my collection were X-Men, Spidey, some Avengers, anything Punisher I could get my hands on and of course, Daredevil - anyone seen the show?  Was AWESOME but I digress), I had a lot of respect for someone so upstanding as Cap.  I also like that he's quite possibly the greatest hand to hand combatant in the MU, which affords him the ability to go toe to toe with much stronger and larger opponents and still- well, at least he doesn't get killed as a result.  I was shocked that they killed him off- I think I took Superman's death much better than I did Cap's.  So...in order:

1. Captain America
2. Spiderman
3. Wolverine
4. Daredevil
5. Punisher

Thor and Hulk are up there near the top- Thor, well, he's an Asgardian, how cool is that?  And Hulk...I had rage issues as a child, I get them.  I wasn't really a fan of Iron Man til the movies; to me he seemed less interesting outside of the armor.  RDJ changed that for me.

Now, heroes from any comic universe, then Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman would be in there somewhere in the top 20...but below the Marvel characters.  MU always seemed more realistic, despite the fantastic powers most of them have; they were always set in a place that I knew or could look up.  Not so with DC.  Also, their explanations as to how these powers were acquired, powered or used always seemed to be lesser than the pretty well thought out origin stories for the major MU characters.

My favorite Marvel character is Man Playing Galaga from The Avengers movie. ;)

Actually, it's a tie between Captain America and Iron Man for me. Of course, my familiarity with Marvel barely extends beyond a handful of the movies.
Though I do know that Nolan North has provided the voice of Deadpool in numerous media; that in itself is pretty awesome.

Moon Knight...got into him as a teen, really dug the schizophrenic side of the story, 3 split personalities, all of them working together as it were.

Hellboy has books?  I'd read'm!

I wanted to be Moon Knight, Black Knight and the Swordsman for obvious reasons.  Oh, and the Crusader- anyone remember him?  He fought Thor, sword to hammer and held his own for a while.
