What are the best and worst and otherwise fathers in all of comics?

Here are my choices:

GOOD = Jor-El (Sacrificed his reputation, his work, and ultimately himself to save his son despite all those around him.)

BAD = Darkseid (Willing to kill his own son Orion and torment his other son Kalibak. And generally a very bad entity.)

CONFUSED = Odin (Sometimes Odin seems to care more than anything and other times he lets his Odin-Anger get the best of his Odin-Caring and he should just take an Odin-Nap.)

The guys who immediately come to mind aren't fathers in the biological sense.

Uncle Ben. Only seen in a few pages of one comic but probably the most influential father figure in comics.

I'm having a hard time thinking of other good fathers besides those that have been mentioned. But there are plenty of bad ones.

Dr. Doom
. I know his son was actually his clone around FF 195-200, but he was first presented as Doom's son when I read these issues as an 8 year old and the impact of Doom killing his son has stuck with me as a 47 year old. Add to this the way he used and abused Kristoff, his "adopted" son, and you get a pretty bad dad.

Norman Osborn. Marvel's template for the neglectful, abusive father. I think he might have used the word "sniveling" more than anyone else.

Jonathan Drew. Brings Jessica Spider-Woman Drew to Wundagore where she exposed to radiation, injected with an experimental serum and then left her with his lab partner. Nice.

Off topic: Nathaniel Richards. I just hate him and not in the "love-to-hate" way.
