Coming in at # 5 on my favorite non DC or Marvel superheroes series is GI Joe's. I know they aren't exactly superheroes, but they are real American heroes. So, that qualifies them in my book. GI Joe's original run was from 1985- 1991, but they are still going strong today, making toys and, making movies, some of my favorite GI Joe's are Sgt Slaughter, Snake Eyes, Duke, Hawk and, Rock n roll, the Joe's of course always fought the evil Cobra and, his forces. I remember as a kid we played GI Joe's like everyday, probably my favorite toys and, we still have most of them too. Who was your favorite Gi Joe? Some information verified at Wikipedia.

I had no idea GI Joe was more than one character. I do remember after 9/11 sales of GI Joe went up dramatically. It was heartening to see the military become more heroic in children's minds than a lot of superheroes.

I had the dolls, but never really watched the cartoon unless there was nothing else on. But I gotta go with Sgt. Slaughter!
