Who is your favorite of these Marvel heroes, all created in the 90s?

Gambit
Deathlok (Michael Collins)
Ghost Rider (Danny Ketch)
Deadpool
Darkhawk

To tell you the truth, I like them all, though I liked Gambit better in the old days, before he fell in love with Rogue. As for Triple D - Deathlok, Deadpool, Darkhawk - I want them to appear in a new Marvel comic titled "Marvel Triple Action."

You know... Deathlok and Darkhawk would make excellent Marvel TV heroes.

Oh, what the heck, I'll pick Deadpool as my favorite. He is, after all, Shiklah's favorite, and it isn't healthy to oppose Shiklah. Not that Shiklah existed in the 90s. I mean, she sort of did, since she's very old, but no one knew about her, I think because Fabian Nicieza was trying to keep her for himself. I don't blame him. I wouldn't want to share her if I could keep her to myself just by pretending she doesn't exist.

Thanks for using my banner. I had a lot of fun making it.

Gambit is definitely my favorite. He's my favorite X-Man and one of my favorite fictional characters.

Back in the day, I would've said Darkhawk. His one the only book I casually read.

Today, I'd say Gambit. I'm surprised at how much I like this character with my reading of the 90s books I missed. In the 90s. I used to think of him as just the X-Men's latest "hot" character, but he's an enjoyable addition to the fold. In my limited experience I find he was rarely written as just superficially cool, a problem I have with much of Wolverine's characterization in the 90s.

Great work on the banner Thjan, btw.

I've yet to read a Deadpool appearance I was overly impressed with besides Deadpool 11 when he went back in time to ASM 47, but I'm only up to 1995, so he's only had the one miniseries so far. The one with Juggernaut and Siryn. I did like that one ok.

I also have enjoyed the 90s Ghost Rider, but not so much Vengeance. I don't like 90s Deathlok at all.

Deathlok was the only one I bought. Collins, with his moral compass, is the only Deathlok I could ever stand.
