The vote goes to the big guy himself, Galactus!
Cause no cosmic saga is really epic until he plays a part in it.

You didn't say it had to be a Marvel Cosmic Character so I am taking G'Nort! You all know you secretly love that flea bag.
But if I had to pick a Marvel guy, I guess I would go with Quasar.

My favorite cosmic character is Nova. Never really read about him before Annihilation, but the man took about twenty levels of badass during that event.

My favorite would have to be Silver Surfer. The time when Ron Lim was on the series really nailed it for me.

Favorite cosmic character for DC is Green Lantern (Hal Jordan). The Chuck Yeager of the DC Universe.

Favorite cosmic character for Marvel is Silver Surfer. I love his naivete of emotions and the sadness of him sacrificing staying on his homeworld and being with his lover.

lurkingwombat said...

This is a very cool idea.
My picks would be
Marvel - Quasar (Wendell Vaughn)
DC - Krona
and my favourite would be Aster from Entity Comics.

My favorite is definitely Richard Rider, Nova the Human Rocket. I still remember picking up New Warriors #17 with Thing and Kid Nova on the cover: "Don't call me Kid." Ever since then, I've definitely been a big fan of old buckethead.

Thanks for holding this contest, and for all the great hard work!

I've been wanting to, but have not been able to read much of the recent cosmic stuff -- I came into it late and I usually can only pick up trades that I find on the cheap -- so I'm not terribly familiar with all of 'em. BUT... I've totally loved Silver Surfer since seeing him in his first appearance in Fantastic Four, so I'm going with him.
