Happy Fathers Day!!
They aren't always perfect. They often make mistakes in their efforts to prepare us for the trials that await in life. They frequently seem heavy-handed in their disciplining mode. No matter how you slice it, they give it their best shot. They're "dad", and we all have one. To represent this auspicious day, here are four iconic fathers from the good years of comics. Jor-El rocketed his infant son from the doomed planet of Krypton and gave us Superman. Reed Richards led the Fantastic Four against a horde of world-shaking villains, but occasionally struggled in his role as a parent. Let's face it, Odin invented "tough love" as the sire of Thor and Aquaman paid the most terrible price of all when his young son was murdered by one of his arch-enemies.
