For a Marvel character i would choose Jean Grey because here super power are great including when she turn into the Phoenix either hero or when she was evil. I even have a Phoenix toy from the 90s.

I of course still like wolverine. Iceman was the one the hardest toys to find along with storm. Magneto is my favorite villain in Marvel series.

I'm gonna go with Bucky/ Winter Soldier/ Captain America. Simply because his resurrection exceeded ALL of my expectations in originally wanting him to stay dead, to disbelief that Marvel would do something as fucking ridiculous as that, to accepting him as one of the most badass and well written characters currently right now in Marvel 616 Universe. Not to mention him as Captain America is something that basically isn't seen as just someone to replace Cap for time being until inevitable resurrection of original Cap, but as actually his own take with him taking the mantle.

So Bucky, simply because most developed character in such short span of time.

Iron-man. Next to Spidey, Iron-man is my #2. I love his origin tale and the whole premise of a hero who isn't born, but made. Post-civil war, being an Iron-man fan will get you a lot of flaming, but to hell with it.

From time to time my favorite character has been a anti hero and that is Thanos.

Been out of comics for a good while now, but my favorite non Spidey/Wolverine Marvel character was always Havok (aka Alex Summers). Always thought he got short shrift, and the Meltdown Wolverine/Havok miniseries was awesome and continued the theme of Uncanny at the time.

I really like Captain America (Steve Rogers). I'm a fan of heroes in comics that have no super powers (which in this case might be debatable, but for the sake of arguement, let's just throw Cap in), especially when they're highly skilled in hand to hand combat. I like to think he's like Superman mentally and Batman physically. I haven't read the new Cap where Bucky takes over the mantle, so I can't comment on him.

My favorite is absolutely Storm.

She can call down the most powerful things to all her enemies and enemies of the X-men and it is deifnatly cool to see her levitate and just rain down (pun intended) pain on her enemies.

My favorite is Gambit

Guy is a pimp, charges objects with his hands, and of course throws those charged objects at villians =).

Forsythe Pendleton Jones III aka Jughead; he likes to sleep, eat, and can't pay his debts, he's the quintessential American archetype.

I would say Steve Rogers (Captain America) but he dead. And since WOmbat disqualified Spidey. I'm gonna have to go with a darkhorse (not the company) and say the heroic Green Lantern. One of my favorite 13 issue series ever. I'm a fan of Stumble-into-powers-and-not-know-what-to-do-Heroes.

My favorite Marvel character (s) are the first couple of the X-Men: Cyclops and Emma Frost. Cyclops has always been my favorite X-Men since I first watched the X-Men cartoon on Fox (my introduction to the XMen since I had no comic book stores where I grew up) and Emma has fantasied me because of her going from bad girl to good girl and landing the ultimate good guy. I have her entire prequel series in the 3 small trade books and it intrigued me even more.

Oh to have been a fly on the wall of their Savage Land vacation in Uncanny X-Men 495 ...

well since the punisher did visit riverdale once...does that make riverdale part of 616 marvel?

as for my entry.

Deadpool is just great for all the 4th wall antics.

Honorable Mentions

Taskmaster, he's the more realistic character in the MU, "oh shit I have photographic reflexes, screw helping people, I'm off to make money!"

the 4channer in me wants to say Squirrel Girl

hell, Squirrel Girl has beaten Dr. Doom, Thanos and probably anyone they throw at her.

For me, the character "Darkhawk" from the early 1990's would have to be one of my obscure, favorite Marvel Characters.

That comic book was like a mix of "The Guyver", "Iron Man" and "Spider-Man" (with good ol' Spidey stopping by for guest appearances every now and then). I never got to read what happened to the character at the end of the series.

My favorite Marvel character has always been beast. I liked how he shows off his smarts and brute strength but isn't as flashy as the incredible hulk. He was an original X-men character too despite not being as blue (and furry).

I really loved Blink and Magneto in Professor X's shoes during whatever that story ark was. I also loved X Man for a while. I also was a big Gambit fan and would have loved to see him in the movies before those went to shit.

But for currently the only Marvel character I get into (I only read TPB now) seems to be Spidey.

My favorite was Cable. I was a huge X-Men/Factor/Force fan back in the day, I had a complete X-Force run from issue #1. I haven't collected for a long while now, and sold my entire collection (!) to my brother (for waaaay less than they were worth), but I still occasionally read them.

Cable was just a bad-ass. :) BFG's FTW!

No, I'm just a comic newb. I'm more into games, and a bit into sci-fi.

The Thor is one of my favorite characters. Especially the newest re-vamp of the character where he's a crazy hippy activist.
