Well, in the Arrowverse (RIP Salmon Ladder), it is defined as being someone incredibly attractive, who also happens to inhabit a world of diverse and attractive people with diverse genders and sexualities.

There are worse things. Did I mention the whole ... attractive part? I mean, in all the multiverse, with all the Earths, it's funny how all them have drop-dead gorgeous people everywhere and every location on every earth strangely resembles Vancouver.
Well not ALL. Some look like Montreal and the the base of the Vought Enterprises building, in "The Boys", looks shockingly like a certain concert venue in Toronto ;)

But yes, entire comic worlds seem like the entire populace has easy access to Brazilian plastic surgery professionals.

I went with Spiderman.

Most of the other people on the list are privileged and can make being a superhero a lifestyle choice.

Spiderman got bit, and had to decide every day that he should stop that robbery instead of what he wanted to be doing.

I'm offended by your lack of mutants.

But my actual choice is: The Silver Surfer. All-silver body, the Power Cosmic, Herald of Galactus, riding through space on a surf-board...you just can't beat all of that. He's radd.

Other favorites: Moon Knight (crazy Batman with occult powers and possession), Jean Grey/Phoenix/Dark Phoenix (comics-version, at least), Magneto (anti-hero).

His rogues' gallery is by far the best in comic-books.
Are Clock King, Zebra-man, Crazy Quilt, Killer Moth, The Mime, King Tut, Calendar Man, Mr. Polka Dot, Kite Man, and Condiment King a bug or a feature? (For a rogue's gallery that is, obviously a feature in the Lego Batman movie).

I mean, yeah, this is accurate, but that's not why you should vote Spider-Man. You should vote Spider-Man because he's the best.

From the list, I chose Spidey. He'd hit several definitions of "best" for me. As a bit of an odd runner up, if "best" meant "I liked the most when a kid" and you stayed Marvel, then #2 was The Ever-lovin' Blue-Eyed Thing. At least as a kid, long before the MCU got it's delightful hooks into me.

On DC side, I'm more of a traditionalist.

SPOOOOOOOOON!!!

Well, if you only knew him from either TV show I guess he's easily forgetable. But if you knew him from early comics, you'd wet yourself laughing. Just like TMNT were serious and real in the first comics, unlike the campy goofs they are often shown as in the movies.

Though he himself will attack me for calling him a Super Hero, he certainly fits into the generic genre - Deadpool (and I mean even before Ryan Reynolds made him 'cool'). The fourth-wall-breaking "Merc with a Mouth" has always been the only comic I could stomach reading for more than one issue at a time at any point after my adolescence.

Wow. I voted for Spider-Man, because he's very clearly the best, but I'm very surprised to see 0 support for Iron Man. I mean, he's very clearly better than Superman.

I liked Thor from the comic run where they brought in Norse mythology for him to interact with. Later booked as The Thor Compendium.
My favorite Thor is Ultimates Thor where initially you cannot tell if he is a god or a crazy mutant.

Selfish, entitled, trust fund kid, with an addictive personality, who made his fortune selling WMDs hasnt got much to recommend him as a hero. His ability as a technological genius and master of the suit is good but really not on that inspiring epic level

Movie version is much more appealing than the comics version because of Robert Downey Jr and how the character seemed to be made for him.

We are a hedge. Move along. :D

When the issues would come out, we used to do dramatic readings with different folks taking different parts. I can still picture my friend Bill doing a ridiculously serious voice for Paul the Samurai: "But first, we bake."
