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 trail, or sometimes who just supplement the action and provide a nice, relateable human counterpoint to the spandex-clad out 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 to this list below!
