Ok, so besides Superman and all his related characters, who are some of your other all-time favorite heroes.

Mine would be:

Captain Marvel and the Marvel Family

I like Green Lantern and the GLC in general, with Hal Jordan and Alan Scott my particular favourites.  And Guy Gardner has gotten short-changed too often but now seems to finally be getting written properly.

Ultra Boy is my favourite Legionnaire 'cause he's that delightful package of uber-power level but incredible constraints that make for interesting encounters.  I generally like the Legion though I qualify that with the Pre Five-Year-Gap Legion and Waid's Legion after that.  The stuff inbetween really doesn't appeal to me and I think they lost complete sight of what the LSH was about in that interim period.

Barry/Flash and any flash concept pre-Speed Force I like.  The Speed Force seems to have caused more problems than it solved, IMHO.  Even Wally's Mach One speed and other limitations seemed better to me.

Nightwing, is that really you???

I like all of the pre-Crisis DC and Marvel heroes (with the exception of some Johnny-come-lately Bronze Agers like Booster Gold, Firestorm, 80s X-men, etc.).  I find most of the characters tolerable and the artists involved more important (although great characters like Ben Grimm, Siegel's Superman, etc. are more compelling than some).
