There's a certain very popular comic book of which this character with the energy-firing eyes that have to be kept behind special lenses used to be the lead. By rights he should still be the lead, but much more attention has been lavished on a certain other character with metal claws that come out of his hands, who is a vulgar, glorified homicidal maniac. (And whom comic book artists never draw as drop-dead gorgeous as the movie version of him.) However, when drawn with the right attention to his brooding masculine beauty and well-honed, well-haired form, this character is one of the sexiest heroes in comics. Here's the classic version of him, the way I used to enjoy him.
