Poll Position: The British Invasion

This week’s Poll Position is for the Anglophiles out there. My question is this. “Which of these British SuperHeroes is your favorite” ? This isn’t about costumes, or not only about costumes, this poll is about which of these do you like the best for whatever reason, costume, powers, personality, what have you.

The Heroes I have picked are by no means the end all, be all of British Heroes therefore I have left this poll open for you to add in your own choice should you find it needful. My requirement for this poll is that the character needs to have been a SuperHero as some point in his/her career and have been born in Britain even if not operating from there.

 

Pictures and Wiki links for my Choices After the Jump. ( If you add an entry to the poll please post a wiki link for the character you have added )

For me this is a bit of a tie between The former Braddock twins,  (AKA Psylocke, & Captain Britain ) and Lionheart. If you press me to pick just one I will have to go with Captain Britain. All of his costumes are clearly British inspired, his power level is fairly impressive, and he was able to overcome his problems with Alcoholism and go on to rule Otherworld and the Multi-Demensional Captain Britain Corps.

  1. What about Spitfire? While not the most powerful English hero, she certainly has a pretty interesting storyline…

  2. I voted for other – primarily being John Constaintine

    Though while yeah, the Marvel ones tend to stand out more, there are a few more DC ones

    Jason Blood (the demon Ettrigan), V (for Vendetta), Knight and Squire (the english Batman and Robin) and what is Batman without Alfred? (not technically a superhero, but a vital asset to the war on crime)

  3. Isn’t Wolfsbane Irish?

  4. Nick Hentschel

    Where’s Arthur Dent? ;-)

  5. ams:

    I think she’s Scottish

    Yeah, V should be on there. This lot are all good and everything, but V took down a fascist government.

  7. Psylocke, just because she’s so damn sexy I never could resist her… :-D

  8. I really missed something. Since when has Jessica Drew been a Brit?

    Hands down, it’s Union Jack.

    It surprised me too at first. But sure enough while doing my research on British SuperHeroes her name popped up and her bio says she was born in England.

    As to the other Heroes being mentioned that I should have included. I have decided that I should limit these polls to a Maximum of 10 individuals and I selected that first 10 I came across that looked interesting to me. I however recognized that this was a might short list of all the possible British Heroes so that is way I left the poll open for you to add the name one you think should have been added.
