The problem with Tony is that he keeps making really bad judgement decisions on things and then makes something really bad that he then turns around and makes another really bad judgement call on it to try to fix his first bad decision and then makes another bad decision to fix the fix for the first bad decision and no one but Cap calls him out on it. He has good intent but no impulse control and no self accountability for his actions.

Age of Ultron is the ultimate embodiment of this.
Tony: Hey let's create this ultra powerful robot with alien technology that we don't fully understand because: we can!
Oops, now Ultron is trying to destroy the world.
Tony: I know! I'll create ANOTHER ultra powerful robot with alien technology that we don't fully understand and it'll work out just fine this time guys I promise because: REASONS!
Avengers: Great idea! What can possibly go wrong?
Vision: seriously guys you only got lucky here. Let's be honest.

Civil war was really about Cap finally unable to put up with Tony's bulls@#t.
Yeeeeaaahhhh..... He got railroaded in Age of Ultron. In the comics it was Hank Pym, who was also a master of Bad Choices (tm).

Do you mean Triplicate Girl/Duo Damsel?
She changes names faster than some people change cars. In Legion of three worlds she showed up an improved version of her power before proclaiming herself Duplicate Damsel and I quote "How did I manage with just three of me!?"

After New 52 she was renamed Duplicate Girl.

I didn't realize this!

I'm an old-school Legion fan and found the reboots disappointing after Giffen left the "Five Years Later" series. Until the current new version, I haven't kept up with much LSH stuff (though I did read the Legion of Three Worlds story, but don't remember than bit).

Sure he did. And I know Hank was the original (comics) creator of Ultron. But let's be honest, Tony wasn't much better in any of the other Marvel movies he was in. Look at his actions all through Infinity War. Can't get any more selfish than that.

It is among the last batch of new comics I bought so the whole series was forever burned into memory. Money started getting tight at the time -you know, because of the 2009 crisis- and things at the time seemed to turn into less interesting stuff. Then they announced the new 52 and I took it as permission to jump off.

I prefer Wally, definitely. To me Barry used to work better as a symbol and legendary hero that Wally aspired to honor. In my opinion there was no reason to bring him back. He had completed his journey and gotten his happy ending already. By bringing him back, they just reset his life and life path, and what for? to give him angst!?
I do feel that Wally has gotten the shaft since Barry's return. Of all the original Teen Titan's he had risen the highest and was a super popular character to boot.
 




I like Spiderman. He is one of the few super heroes that doesn't seem to get respect or recognision for his hero work, and on top of that, half his enemies know his true identity.

It occurs to me that the title character from Doctor Who has all the traits of a superhero despite the show being very much a non-superhero show. Think about it: The Doctor has a superpower (regeneration from mortal wounds, and limited shape-shifting and energy blasts connected with this regeneration), a secret identity (I'm pretty sure that even the show's writers don't know what the character's real name is), uses various super-science gadgets (The sonic screwdriver, the TARDIS, the chameleon arch, etc), has an arch-nemesis (The Master), and - like Superman - is a space alien who is nominally the last of their kind even though there are actually a whole bunch of them trapped in another dimension.

Superman also has the bottled city of Kandor, so... same?

I also kinf of like "V" from V For Vendetta. (Or at least I like the idea of V. The movie wasn't actually super great - it wasn't bad, but it wasn't great either - and I haven't read the graphic novel)
 

Then you should definitely read the graphic novel - it's a much better version than the movie they made from it. But V makes for an odd "superhero," in any case - he's rather like the Punisher, who likewise doesn't fit the "superhero" mold very well.

I'd have to put myself in the Spider-Man camp for the "best superhero" title. His whole "with great power comes great responsibility" thing drives him to constantly try to do the right thing no matter how difficult it might be.

Dr Who is a god:)

also that whole energy blast when he regenerates is something new, the old Doctors didnt do that

Doctor Who is a good non-traditional pick.
I am tempted to say names like Captain Jean-Luc Picard or Captain Benjamin Sisko or... Admiral Adama and Captain Apollo. They take risks and always find a way. But of course, they lack superhero costumes and superpowers. Maybe I should pick Data, at least he has superpowers.
