Not much love around here for Iron Man. I gotta give it to him.

Only if you've been hiding under a rock (from a comics perspective).  Marvel killed him off after the Civil War story arc; was an assassin who took him down while he was being escorted from court in handcuffs.  I'll leave who the assassin is as a surprise, should they decide to pursue this story arc in the MCU.  But yea, that took place several years ago.  I was, needless to say, blown by the news.  Even got some media coverage at the time.

Iron Man would have been my favorite, but only because I like Robert Downey Jr's portrayal of him so much, as opposed to his comics, which felt wrong in a sense.
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.

I'm more of a DC guy, but Cap is awesome.  I also liked Cyclops (and if we're talking villains, Doom and Magneto).

What?! No Rom, Shogun Warrior or Micronaut fanboys here?! ;)

Wrong genre.   ;)

I was a big fan of Rom the Space Knight (obvious reasons lol) and the Micronauts as a kid...but that was a long time ago, thanks for the memory necro!  I'd forgotten about them.  And Cyke's pretty awesome as well.

Speaking of Marvel, who here is looking forward to the rest of the Netflix series from the Marvel universe? IIRC Jessica Jones is coming out in a few months.

I'll be honest, I haven't exactly been up in arms over it- love Daredevil but haven't taken a look at any of the others.  Jessica Jones I'd only heard of briefly as she came after my golden age with comics (age 8-19 lol) and I didn't get a chance to pick them back up until I was nearly 30.

I just looked, she's associated with Power Man and Iron Fist.  Ok, that rocked it up to the top of my list!

Who was born on a battlefield? Who spilled more blood before 20 winters than Deadpool's entire career? Who stormed the walls of Venarium?

The subtle tongue, the sophist guile, they fail when the broadswords sing;
Rush in and die, dogs—I was a man before I was a king."

Well...I didn't include him because, even though he has several titles in the MU lineup, he is not a Marvel superhero.  That is, his genesis occurred elsewhere but who cares, he rocks.

Excellent quote; I'd completely forgotten it til I read it anew.  ;)  My favorite:

“Hither he came; black-haired, sullen-eyed, sword in hand, a thief, a reaver, a slayer, with gigantic melancholies and gigantic mirth, to tread the jeweled thrones of the Earth under his sandaled feet.”
