I don't really know anythinga bout Manga either so I skipped that stuff. I included villains too, since the questions didn't exclude them...hope that isn't a problem.

Five most popular American comic book characters: Superman, Batman, Spider-Man, The Joker, The Incredible Hulk

Five favourite: Superman, Batman, Spider-Man, The Joker, Alfred Pennyworth

Rorschach is an American character from a British comic, and Calvin and Hobbes are comic strip characters, so I didn't think any of them were eligible. If they are, replace the Joker and Alfred with Calvin and Rorschach for me.

Rorschach is an American character from an American publisher created by a British writer. I think he qualifies.

(Although, if "American" just means "Non-Japanese", I'd guess the last would probably be Asterix).
