[30 Day Comic Book Challenge] Day 06 - Most Annoying Character

Okay, my first instinct made me want to put Cyclops here, but I decided that, while he is still my least favorite character ever, there are still characters who are more annoying than he is. I can’t rant about them all, but I will rant about the one who annoys me the most.

This guy. 

Oooh, just piss me off.

Superman is annoying as hell to me. I think he may be the character that annoys me the most by just being himself. While I have an irrational loathing of Cyclops that I refuse to let go of (and you can stop trying to make me like him… you know who you are), I think he serves a purpose and he has depth.

I look at Superman and my eye starts twitching. Then, the rage takes over. He’s perfect, has no real weaknesses, and just oozes Boy Scout charm. I know he has his moments that have been colossal, but overall he just annoys me.

I’m big on characters. And I enjoy characters that present multiple sides of themselves, who have real conflicts that I can empathize with. I like my characters to be someone I feel I can relate too, and Superman is mostly NOT that character for me.

I’ll admit that I do appreciate Superman’s simplicity. That whole small town boy who’s trying to keep some normalcy in his big city world is sort of endearing, but still, that’s not enough for me to be less annoyed with the fact that Superman (to me) comes off really flat.

And maybe this is just all bias speaking. Maybe I haven’t read anything about him that has really moved me to thinking anything differently about him. I’m always open to suggestions, and don’t mind admitting when I’m wrong… sometimes…


This blog is a mishmash of thoughts, pictures, and rantings among other things about games I've played, games I will play, and games I am currently playing. From time to time, I may post book reviews that I've written that are about different games and/or game worlds. Feel free to recommend games or add me on the platforms I've listed. I don't do competitive multiplayer much anymore, but I'm always down for some co-op these days. I'm usually DigitalTempest everywhere unless otherwise specified.
