Favorite DC Hero?

Over at Has Boobs, Reads Comics, Jill is running a contest asking her readers who their favorite DC character.  And while I consider myself a bigger DC than Marvel fan, I had trouble coming up with someone.  Maybe because I don’t read any DC title (outside of Tiny Titans!) regularly any more.

So my answer is Wesley Dodd’s Sandman.  Why?

  1. He doesn’t have any superpowers, just a big intellect and deep pockets.
  2. He decides to use his resources to help stem the tide of evil leaking out over the world during the 1940s.
  3. He fought crime in a fedora, trench coat, and gas mask.
  4. He didn’t kill, but put his enemies to sleep.
  5. He practiced mediation.
  6. He had the best friends (Justice Society of America).
  7. And he had the smarts to fall in love with Dian Belmont.

If you haven’t taken the opportunity to read Sandman Mystery Theatre, you’re missing out.
