With Father's Day approaching quickly, it's time we celebrate the best fathers in comics, gaming, and cartoons. Maybe some of these fathers aren't the best parents, but we'll put that aside for now because they're pretty damn cool. We of course need to give credit for the men who may not be the biological father, but men who are uncles and mentors who acted as their paternal figure (sorry, Batman).
