Wonder Woman

Comics are just one of the many sources of characters that movies and TV shows have draw on for inspiration – and continue to draw on. In the last few weeks, we've seen TV show versions of both Wonder Woman and The Incredible Hulk mooted. Both of course were adapted for TV in the 70s, and Spiderman, Batman, The Green Hornet and others have all had TV shows. The movies have also adapted the likes of Watchmen, Green Lantern, Electra, Daredevil, Blade, the Fantastic Four et al.

So this week's question is:

Who's your favourite TV or movie comic book hero and why?

The advanced respondent can, of course, cheat by talking about characters in TV and movie who have ended up in comic books (eg Buffy, Angel, Chloe Sullivan, Doctor Who, The Thing from Another World, Heroes) if they so prefer it.
