Of all my husband's characters, the one with which I identify most is Wolverine. The one which I think is or was closest to his own view of himself is SwampThing.
SwampThing was the $1000 answer in the D.C. Comics category on Jeopardy! last night. I think Swampy was the only non-golden age character in the five questions up there represented by five pieces of artwork--and two of the characters were from Batman (Dick Grayson and the Penguin.) Green Arrow and Plastic Man were the other two.
SwampThing could also have fit the category of words introduced in the 20th Century in the same round.
