When I think of my favorite super-heroes, its interesting how many of them do not fit the standard mold of the square-jawed leading man. In addition to the two above, some of my personal favorites include Metamorpho, The Thing, The Beast, Swamp-Thing, and Beta-Ray Bill. While those guys are all certainly heroic, none of them are going to win a beauty contest any time soon. I think it is probably just that juxtaposition that interested me in those guys in the first place, their monstrous appearances gave them an added depth - and plus they just looked really cool!
