For me, it's currently Booster Gold. Who's that, many of you will ask? The greatest hero you've never heard of! He's a time-traveling superhero in the DC Comics universe, who once described himself as the Corporate Crusader. He likes rescuing people and being a hero... but he also enjoys the fame and fortune that go with it.
I too want to work hard and make people's lives better... But I also like some kudos and payment for a job well done.
And while you consider your answer, here are some heroes of the art world.
