Lars Lindstrom from Lars and the Real Girl (2007)

weirdly curious when matched up with the female poll which user unintentionally created the best couple.

Mine is definitely interesting, and it was unintentional:

male character - Merlin, a magician of King Arthur, in a Celtic-era Britain. Despite his human appearance, he is not a man, but a mysterious creature of unclear origin, but seems to be tied to Earth itself

female character: Aisling, a faerie from Ireland, in an age where Christianity slowly started to replace old Celtic religion. She is very tied to the life-force of nature.

I unintentionally created a pair with Borderline Personally Disorder (Rorschach from Watchmen and Susanna from Girl, Interrupted.)

Perhaps this says something about me.

As a kid I always liked DC over Marvel..

But I need to be honest, the DCEU films of the past decade pale miserably in comparison to the MCU ones.

Edit: I mean the DCEU proper, NOT the Nolan Trilogy, which was superb.

I have a very weird question... Would it be arrogant and full of myself to choose some of the characters I created for my first feature film and expanded universe? Film is not out yet, but choosing the most favorite characters out of those I've created will at least be easy then from at least few dozens of options from other movies... 

While I'm at it: I know from experience that many creators develop really weird relationships with their characters. Some basically start living on their own and popping up in the most unexpected of places.

FYC my pick: Indiana Jones. He's very smart but tough, clever, masculine, and no-nonsense. He can charm a woman, dig up a treasure, win a fist fight, and prefers a whip to a gun.

Let me think about it.... get back to you in  a few.

Thank you for adding Rorschach :)

Edit: Winona Ryder as Susanna Kaysen in Girl, Interrupted, please :)

Edit 2: I hope someone nominates Anne Hathaway for The Dark Knight Rises or Interstellar or Les Miserables. My nomination stands, though.

Paok,

For your consideration:
Tevye from Fiddler on the Roof (1971)

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0067093/mediaviewer/rm3732243712
Topol in Fiddler on the Roof 1971

Tevye and Don Quixote De La Mancha are characters I aspire to be.

Christopher Reeve was great.

I also liked Dean Cain in the 90s TV show. (Speaking of that show, Teri Hatcher will always be the "real" Lois Lane to me.)
