Doug: I was reading the article on the death of the Flash in Back Issue! #48 the other day. In that story the writer was discussing the events of Crisis on Infinite Earths #'s 7 and 8 -- the deaths of Supergirl and the Flash, respectively. The author mentioned that fans of each character, for whom said character was their favorite, were quite upset about this chain of events. And that got me to thinking -- why would Supergirl or the Flash be anyone's favorite character? And who is my favorite character, and why do I like him/her over all others? For some folks, is a villain their one-and-only? Or maybe some second-stringer gets 'em all giddy?
Doug: So this weekend we're tossing this out to you, the faithful readers of this small repository of Bronze Age goodness: who's your favorite character, all-time, all-companies, and what is it about that character that you really, really like? I guess I should add in "when did you like them", as we've certainly seen the desecration of a host or two in recent years. Thanks for sharing!
