The Coolest Non-Superhero Comic Characters

List Criteria: Characters from comic books that are human or do not have super powers.

Superhero comic books tend to get all the attention and glory, but sometimes it's the characters without capes and cowls that really stand out. This list collects all the coolest comic book and graphic novel characters who don't fit the traditional superhero mold, who blaze their own trails, or who sometimes just supplement the action and provide a nice, relatable human counterpoint to the Spandex-clad, outer space-exploring, muscle-bound titans who defend humanity from existential threats.

Did we miss one of your favorite characters who has better things to do than patrol the thin line between criminality and innocence? Add your own picks for the best non-superhero characters in comics to this list below!
