Since we had such a scintillating comics discussion on the Twilight threads, it's time for a fan thread: who is your favorite comic book character? (Shorter list for less obsessive fans.)
Off the cuff, I'd have to say Wonder Woman for me. I've read zero of her comics, but I like the (possibly apocryphal) story that her creators had quite a few write-in complaints about her being big, tall, strong, and generally Amazonian.
Although now that I say that, I've remembered that Elf Quest counts as a comic, so I'm going to change my answer (without actually editing, because if this wasn't stream-of-consciousness, it wouldn't be Open Thread day) and say my favorite character is Nightfall. She's competent, capable, and totally low-drama awesomesauce.
