Welcome back to [community profile] scans_daily's 30 Days of Winter celebration! Sorry for dropping the ball yesterday, I guess it ended up being a lesser-known day (bum-duhm-CHING), but today we'll be discussing Street-level Heroes.

You all know them, the crimefighters, the detectives, the typically (though not always!) non-powered types. They usually do their heroing on a smaller, more personal scale, keeping an eye out for your everyday crimes, and sometimes things a little bigger than that.

My favorites?
As if it's a surprise to anyone at all anymore... )

So who are your favorite street-levelers?
And make sure to stay tuned tomorrow, when we'll be discussing Last Stands!
As always, you can find our full schedule here, so you won't miss a day! even when we do! /o\

Fans of comics love to argue who is the best/fastest/toughest character. Among DC Martial Artists, Cassandra Cain, Lady Shiva, or Batman often get the nod. But there's one fellow who sometimes gets missed, even though he's been around since the early 70's:



Part of it is understandable, as he disappeared from comics after his short-lived series (based on a novel by Denny O'Neill & Jim Berry) was canceled, but 23 years ago, Denny re-invented him as the archetypal martial arts master, that guy who isn't as flashy as some, but is the best person to learn from.

Class is now in session )

It's because these scenes (among others) were so cool that I didn't care for the Dixon revamp. I do have a pet theory that "Richie" is a different fellow entirely, but this might not be the place for that. :)
