Deadpool.




Ok, I'm kidding. Couldn't resist. O\:\-\)

Although, in a way I'm serious. Humor is one of the things that made Marvel, Marvel. Sure, DC would do a funny story once in a while, but generally the whole story would be comical. Marvel from its earliest days would insert humor into stories that were otherwise melodramatic. Ben and Johnny's slapstick antics come to mind as probably the epitome of what I'm talking about. In the same issue where some menace threatened the entire planet, we'd watch Ben chase Johnny with a giant water balloon while Sue frets about the furniture. That's Marvel, to me.
