I have a geekly deficiency. I don't have a favorite superhero.

As a kid, I read a lot of comics - this is simply obligatory for nerds, so please, don't all gasp in shock and surprise at once. My favorite titles were probably X-men and the Avengers. I read a lot of Iron Man, Hellblazer, Batman, New Mutants ... I was definitely a fan of the muties. But I didn't have a single hero with which I particularly identified. I recognize that this is a failure on my part, and I've been thinking (and actively discussing with The Hobbit) who my favorite hero ought to be. I'm sort of leaning towards Captain America - he's basically human (albeit peak human), but through his patriotic commitment and relentless discipline to being a master combatant, he still mixes it up with super-powered baddies and comes out on top. Plus, everyone likes Cap, and kinda listens to what he says. And he beat the snot out of a lot of Nazis, and you know, that's just cool. I like Green Lantern, too - because his power is effectively only limited by his imagination... whatever he can dream up he can do, as long as it's green. Man, if I had one of those rings, I'd be dangerous - I'd think up some pretty odd (and green) stuff, I tell you.

Still, I don't have a particular favorite superhero. I'm willing to take your recommendations in the comments, so long as you have some sort of justification.

Also, I took a "which superhero are you" quiz, and for the sake of politeness, I will put the results behind a cut.

I like Spidey fine - but there's this guy I know and really loathe who is a big Spider-man fan. So, he can't be my favorite. (For the same reason, Batman is out. Also, Superman is boring, so don't pick him.)
