Subj: Marvel's Archetype
Posted: Tue Dec 21, 2010 at 07:05:24 pm EST (Viewed 29 times)

I've had this question for a while now. One of comicdom's staples has been to have two character archetypes to show the yin and yang of the characters. You know: light and dark; good-cop/bad-cop; basically, the good, all-american straight shooter and the dark, brooding guy who gets the tough jobs done. The pulp's had Doc Savage and The Shadow.
DC has Superman and Batman. Recently, we've seen The Green Lama and Black Terror over at Dynamite. My question: Who would be Marvel's?
I think Captain America would be the good cop, but I can't think of his counterpart. It would be easy to say Wolverine or Punisher, but they are both 70's characters and I can't believe there's not a better choice. Ideas?
