The 4 faces are: Superman, Batman, Thanos, Darkseid, Poccy and Adam Warlock. I know, I added two extras. But I think they earned a place on there.

That list, IMO is pathetic no expression

Apocalypse? No.
Darkseid? Meh no, but alot more understandable than Poccy.
Adam Warlock? No, just way too obscure.
Thanos? I could kinda get, kinda on par with Darkseid.

Superman
Batman
Spiderman
Wolverine

Comic Creators?

Will Eisner
Jack Kirby
Stan Lee
Jerry Siegel

This is the face of the comic character Rushmore.

Batman- Dark history taints this character, but beloved he is.
Superman- The last Son of Krypton, and the first father of the conventionals. Hope for the world wears this shield.
Spiderman- The original everyman who just wanted to make it through the day. The first true Superhero, since he didn't have a set of Supermorals.
Hulk- The best and most popular anti-hero, who to this day just can't catch a break.

That's the Rushmore of Comics.

That list is supposed to represent the best characters, not the most popular.

Ok, I admit Poccy was a personal preference. stick out tongue

But the rest are more deserving than over-wanked assholes like Wolverine. Thanos, Darkseid and AW are actually good, even great characters. Spidey I might see, but he doesn't rank in the same page as those 3. They're better written, more interesting and more unique.

Again:

Spiderman, Wolverine, Batman and Superman IMO are undoubtedly the best comic characters ever made, it's only the way they are handled sometimes that can wreck their appeal. If somebody came up to me and said, hey how about that Adam Warlock? Isn't he just the greatest comic creation ever? I would flat out say no.

So from where I'm sitting, their popularity stems from their superiority as a character, meaning if they werent already the best characters they wouldnt have gained such a large fanbase.

But yeah, I dont really care erm

Your list still sucks roll eyes (sarcastic)

As for characters ... Superman, Batman, and Spider Man, obviously. The fourth is a lot harder.

Wolverine--One of Marvel's best known characters; the best known X-Man. On the other hand, because he is "the best known X-Man"--as a member of a team--he's not as individually iconic as the other three. I suspect that if someone doesn't know who the X-Men are, he won't know who Wolverine is, either. Maybe not a lot of recognition among non-comic fans, but it might be appropriate to put someone from Marvel's most popular team on here.

Wonder Woman--DC's third most well-known character, without a doubt, but I understand that she's not all that popular. Furthermore, although everybody can recognize her--including noncomic fans--most nonfans probably don't have any real conception of her as a character. As a random person of the street about Superman, Batman, and Spider-Man, and he could probably tell you something about their personalities. Ask him about Wonder Woman, and he could probably tell you her panty design. Maybe something about her lasso. She's famous without anybody really knowing anything about her.

Captain America--probably not as famous as Wolverine or Wonder Woman among the general public, but more iconic then Wolverine (even though he was with the Avengers, I think people tend to view him as an individual , whereas they think of Wolverine as "one of the X-Men."

Hulk--Everybody knows Hulk's story, and everybody's heard the phrase "Hulk smash!" at least once in their life. He's certainly famous--more famous then Wolverine and Captain America, I'd bet.

Judge Dredd--Huh? Well, comic books aren't a strictly American phenominon, and if you want to represent all comic books, instead of just American ones, we shouldn't restrict ourselves to characters who are super popular in America. Judge Dredd must be Great Britian's most popular comic book character, and he at least has face recognition in America.

Dredd and Hulk are probably the best contestants, but it's a toss-up between them.

Snap out of it.

Gender: Male
Location: Supersurfing

Superman (like any explanation is actually necessary).

Spider-Man: Marvel's icon, and arguably the most popular superhero, at least at the moment. He could also stand as a symbol of exercising power responsibly.

Wonder Woman: I could say for political correctness, but that's trite. Better to say, women--obviously--count as much as men, (and like the others here, she is also very well known).

Captain America: c'mon: monument to American heroes on an American mountain? To not have him on would be like leaving the stars off the American flag.

For those who might be wondering: the reason I did not put Batman on is because he represents, somewhat, vigilante justice, not necessarily the Rule of Law. Americans generally like to see themselves as noble and defect-free, the light unto other nations [cue God Bless America here].
