33. Hulk

What makes The Hulk such an unique character is that people can relate to him and all of his anger issues.

31. Rorschach

Watchmen kicked off the Dark Age of Comics in '86. Pre-Watchmen avid comic readers would dream or fantasize of being a Superhero. Fighting for good, justice, saving the innocent and hooking up with the dream girl/guy. But Watchmen ripped those rules apart. Rorschach is frightening and crazy. His actions cruel, but it gets the job done. A complex character that changed the face of comics.
