Quote:Even though the comics focus on EARTH. Each Universe is HUUUUUUUGE. Marvel especially has well established multi Galaxy spanning empires (Shiar, Skrull, Kree, Brood, and now Chitauri).
Quote:In both DC and Marvel, Earth is a singularly odd planet that can barely get past the moon but with inhabitants that are surprisingly among the most powerful in their entire universes. Earth's heroes (in each universe) have defeated universal level threats that the largest empires cannot. And yet, when earth-based heroes (even Superman) travel the stars, the common peoples among Alien races don't have a clue who they are. So most popular in their respective universe? Unlikely.
Quote:My votes for this is based on who would be the most recognizable person in each respective universe no matter where in the Universe they would go.
Quote:Marvel: Silver Surfer would be the most recognizable/feared as he probably still has the reputation as working for Galactus. Second place would be Gladiator as a ruler of the Shiar empire and originally, its greatest hero. One could argue that Richard Rider NOVA would be extremely recognizable and admired throughout the universe because of his efforts leading the Annihilation War. That dude shouldn't be able to go anywhere without people buying him drinks.
I would think Reed Richards has a big rep off of earth. He's stopped Galactus numerous times (and went on trial that time he saved him). Most of the universe would look down on earth but I imagine Reed's name is known to aliens with access to information about other worlds. Like I bet there's a lot of talk about him being one of the good earthlings the other aliens wouldn't mind living next door. Plus he's not as dumb as other earthlings.
Quote:DC: I would say Hal Jordan or Kilowog Green Lanterns would be universally known and respected. The Green Lantern Core is the number one peacekeeping force in the DCU and they are among the top of their elite leaders instrumental in every one of their biggest victories. The uniform alone makes them more recognizable then all the earth based heroes combined outside of our solar system.
I've always wanted an Elseworlds story where the Legion of Super Heroes took their inspiration from Bruce not Clark. Like the Batman is so feared and respected throughout the galaxy a thousand years later an annoying band of teenagers have gathered together to be Batmen. Batmen are the security force for the galaxy and no criminal is sure if there is just the one guy who is everywhere or if it's a whole army.
I always thought of him as being seen as an urban myth.
The bright lights of the JLA don't suit his character.
