In honor of Memorial Day, MTV Geek (...what?) posted their picks for the Top 10 Soldiers in Comic Books. Number 1 shouldn't surprise you.
I celebrated Memorial Day by watching the movie Battleship, which did make the movie better as you considered the Army and Navy pride on display (one of the very, very few things the movie did right). You might need a tissue though for Time's Memorial Day Tributes from Around the World.
