Spiderman (are you surprised? :D)
Because he is nowhere close to being invincible. He is actually quite weak compared to others, which makes him have to be smarter. For those reasons you can understand why I am not a big fan of Superman. By that logic, I should like Batman also, but I dont...

I'm with you, H! Spidey's always been my favorite, and that's got very little to do with his awesome new movie! :)
Honorable mentions:
Thor
Green Arrow
Daredevil
Superman

Does David Dunn count? :D
No, I'd also go with Spiderman - primarily because he is (as stated by Holadem) more "human" than most others...
Can't wait to see the movie which wont open here in Austria until early June... :frowning:

I'd say either Batman or Spider-Man. Since Spider-Man is all the rage at the box office, I'll elaborate on him:

-Coolest costume, bar none. Too bad the movie version left out the armpit webbing, but oh well. The black and white version is cool, too, but not really appropriate to the character.

-Coolest powers. Speed, strength, agility, wall-climbing, spider-sense, what more do you want?

-Coolest gadgets. Web shooters, oh my god, these rule. Also, spider tracers, the spider-spotlight on his belt and the li'l camera he uses to take pics of himself in action.

-Coolest supporting cast. J. Jonah Jameson, Gwen Stacy, Uncle Ben, Ben Urich, Aunt May, Mary Jane Watson, Harry Osborn, Flash Thompson, the list goes on and on.

-Coolest stories. I love comedy mixed with tragedy. If Billy Wilder had created a superhero, it would be Spider-Man.

As a long time Spidey fan (since I was a wee one), I'd have to stick with him. I always liked him because of his human side and his scientific abilities.
Besides, it's about time he got his due :emoji_thumbsup: (but that's just my little ol' opinion)
