Not every character can have four inch, pointy bat ears.

Eh, we have a saying in Turkiye, ''every blind seller has a blind buyer.'' which means there is a demand for everything. Just like the demand for Gladiator in this case...

I didn't want to hurt any Gladiator fan's feelings ofcourse...

I think this is why I'll vote for Gladiator too, but Alan Moore's Miracleman is one of the best superhero comics I ever read. Tough decision.

However, Miracleman was of course a copy of Captain Marvel so despite how excellent those Miracleman comics are, it would be like voting for a third-rate Superman. Yeah, I have to go with Gladiator.

I also like Apollo, but only within the context of the Authority team and his relationship with Midnighter. I would not be so interested in an Apollo mini-series (unless Midnighter co-starred).

I feel somewhat the same way about Hyperion. Jonathan Hickman wrote him well when he joined the Avengers and developed a bromance with Thor, but again, outside of the Squadron Supreme, I don't think I'd care. Although, I think Supreme Power Hyperion had a lot of depth and if there ever was a Supreme Power omnibus, the related Hyperion solo title absolutely should be included.

Ofcourse Superman is the best, but what we are looking for here is the Best Superman inspired super hero comic book character.
