Best Superman Villian

Luthor

Pick one from the Legion of Superheroes (minus Superboy)

Karate Kid

Favorite Marvel Female Superhero

Rogue

Most Powerful Superhero

Superman, but it's close with Thor and the Surfer

Most Humorous Superhero

Spider-Man

Favorite Superhero Team

Avengers (and if Ken answers, lemme guess, he'll go off the board with the Invaders)

Best of the Marvel Big Baddies

Galactus

Best (mostly) Solo Act (other than Spidey, Supes, or the Bat)

Silver Surfer. Does the guy not wield the power cosmic? Of course it's Norrin Radd.

Best Superman Villian
12)Batman
Periodically, one of the baddies would figure that the best chance to defeat Supes was to turn Batman against him. 'Course they were wrong, but it added some suspense 'cause you weren't sure how both Batman and Superman could come out victorious.

Pick one from the Legion of Superheroes (minus Superboy)
8)Shrinking Violet
Because shrinking seemed like a cool power. I also liked the 60's TV show Land of the Giants for the same reason. Also she was one of the few whose name didn't end in Boy, Girl, Lad, or Lass. DC naming conventions were so creative.

Favorite Marvel Female Superhero
12)Black Cat, by far. But although she helped Spidey out she wasn't a classic heroine. I was also fond of Liberty Girl, who fought the Nazis with Cap in the old comics and Thundra when she helped out the FF.

Most Powerful Superhero
1)I'm with Jerry Seinfeld, there's a reason he's called Superman, people. Although, I typically didn't like uber-powerful heroes because the plans to defeat them always seemed contrived or hokey. Spidey with all his flaws will always be my fave.

Most Humorous Superhero
4)Spider-Man, bar none. See above. Though I liked the Beast an awful lot for this same reason. Also, Bizarro for all the unintentional humor.

Favorite Superhero Team
4) FF, baby. 'Nuff said.

Best of the Marvel Big Baddies
12)N/A. The comics these guys were in always seemed to be the cosmic, alternate universe, we ran out of stuff to do on Earth kinda crap. Hated 'em. They also ruined the "What if..." series frequently with the same mumbo jumbo. Oooh, the Watcher knows. Puh-lease. This was also part of what kept the FF and Green Lantern a notch or two below Spidey in my book as they were wont to run off into another dimension at the drop of a mask. And don't even get me started on the tragedy that was Thor.

Best (mostly) Solo Act (other than Spidey, Supes, or the Bat)
12)Tie between Iron Man, Capt. America, Wolverine, Flash, and Green Lantern. They were all second tier comics for me, but they were good just the same. I generally preferred any of the teams though. Daredevil's team-ups with Spidey were cool too, but on his own, ehh. Moonknight's on the list for laughs, right?

Best Superman Villian
13) Don't know any Superman villains.

Pick one from the Legion of Superheroes (minus Superboy)
13) Again.

Favorite Marvel Female Superhero
1) Jean Grey

Most Powerful Superhero
4) Silver Surfer

Most Humorous Superhero
1) Howard the Duck
I only read a couple HtDs, but I do remember laughing at him.

Favorite Superhero Team
4) Fantastic Four
I liked the Avengers individually, but they never did much for me as team. FF were a family, so it was easier for me to understand.

Best of the Marvel Big Baddies
5) Mephisto
I really liked him as a kid. I think I only remember him from a couple of sagas, but they were goodies.

Best (mostly) Solo Act (other than Spidey, Supes, or the Bat)
3) Silver Surfer
SS took "solo" to another level, another realm! I was such a loner, even then, that he was the absolute coolest.

Picks from the smart comic book reader in my family:

Best Superman Villian
6) Darkseid
He's pure evil and he uses the Omega effect (which disintegrates any organic object). And he rules Apokolips.

Pick one from the Legion of Superheroes (minus Superboy)
12)Timber Wolf

Favorite Marvel Female Superhero
12)Spider Woman #2
The most powerful of the 3 good Spider Women.

Most Powerful Superhero
4)Silver Surfer


Most Humorous Superhero
7)Beast Boy
Because he's not very smart.

Favorite Superhero Team
5)Teen Titans
Enought with the adults, how 'bout some kids?

Best of the Marvel Big Baddies
9)T. H. E.
He's beaten Galactus.

Best (mostly) Solo Act (other than Spidey, Supes, or the Bat)
10)Deadpool
He makes lame jokes.
