Title: Your Favorite DC Character
Post by: Justin on 2015-08-04, 19:18:41
Well, since we are already discussing who our favorite Marvel characters are, it seems only fitting that our favorite DC characters should have their chance to shine as well. Who is your favorite DC character, and why? Mine is Batman. I greatly enjoy watching Batman solve mysteries that would stump most people. I also love watching him take on ridiculous odds without super powers.

Batman has always been my favorite. I grew up with The Justice League show and watched batman TAS as well.
I like superman, but  I think my second favorite DC character is the Barry Allen Flash. (despite growing up with the wally west flash in Justice league)

If I had to pick one it would have to be Batman. I never really got into DC stuff... Though the Booster Gold/ Blue Beetle team in JLA in the late 80s was hysterical....

It's a hard choice between Jon Stewart/ Green Lantern & John Constantine.

But I have to go with Jon.

In the Marvel universe, I love the heroes. However, in the DC universe it is the villains that I enjoy the most. The Joker is probably my favorite character. With so many different portrayals of him throughout all sorts of media (comics, TV, movies, etc...) And through them all he is still the same character. He fascinates me to no end, as do many of Batman's rogues.
And speaking of rogues, my second favorite DC character is Captain Cold. He was a bit weak in the early days, but Geoff Johns handling of the character when he reintroduced him was superb. He is a crook and he does bad things, but he holds himself and his fellow villainous teammates to a code of conduct that no other bad guy even thinks about doing.

Edit: I gotta go with John Constantine. He's inspired some of my most favorite shows and one of my favorite book characters (Harry Dresden).

It is a tossup between Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman.  And Catwoman.  :)

Never really liked the Flash, JLA seems like a rough draft (unlike the slick end result) of the Avengers [as stated, been a Marvel fan since day One], and with only a few exceptions, I didn't enjoy any of their characters, except as fluff or comedy (Bizarro Superman for instance), didn't care for Green Lantern either, despite sharing a few similarities with Hal Jordan (attitude wise, not the pilot bit).  Well, I did get into one of the Batman offshoots- can't recall the name and too lazy to lookup but was comprised of heroes like Geo-force, Black Lightning and Katana- seriously, that's as creative as they could get?  Katana.  LOL  Anyway, it was interesting for a few issues but after a while, I got bored.  I think Nightwing might've led that group.  Oh, and the lil girl deaf assassin who took up/over for Batman over a short story arc.  Think she was trained by some super merc til Batman found her.  She was pretty cool.  DC comics always seemed just a little too outlandish for me which is odd considering they're comic books...but I never liked them as much as I did Marvel, then or now.  Charles Alexander on AA has fed my need for nostalgia with old Marvel books- he's got, or had, a ton of'm.

Justice league existed before the avengers

You are right Naythan, by 3 years actually (JLA came about in 1960, the Avengers in 1963); so I shall amend my statement.

I had to google my options, only ones I knew a little about were Batman and Superman.

I'm going with Green Arrow. I had bookmarked the show on Netflix but hadn't started watching it. His backstory sounds neat. I might just have to watch the series, now.

The Flash is pretty awesome. I'm enjoying the current TV series.
