Animal Man

Buddy Baker, AKA Animal Man.  Has the ability to channel the attributes of any Animal.  Thinks Cheetah, he's super fast.  Thinks Rhino, he's super duper strong/tough.  etc.  You get it.

Grant Morrison had a rather seminal run on the title, where he championed vegetarianism, animal-rights, was a big family-man and famously had Buddy break the fourth wall.

New 52's Animal Man is off to a fantastic start and rave reviews.  It seems Buddy's gift extends into his blood-line.  His daughter is able to raise dead animal life and just so happens to be at the centre/protaganist of a mythic prophecy. ooh la la.

Written by fellow Southern Ontarian Jeff Lemire (buy his Vertigo Title "Sweet Tooth" trades.  do it.) and drawn by the unique pencil of Travel Foreman.
