Live Poll: Oscar Winners' Superhero Alter Egos

Despite all their superpowers, movie superhero characters can't seem to win an Oscar. Alas, superhero characters can at least hope to win an Oscar by proxy of the actor or actress who portrays them, as these pairs have.

Which Oscar winner and proxy movie superhero* alter ego combination is the most superior?

* Movie superheroes are defined as fictional characters having mythical status and extraordinary or superhuman powers.

See the list of Oscar winners and their superhero alter egos here: http://www.imdb.com/list/ls062604606/

Thanks, http://www.imdb.com/poll/caJy4nlV2nE/  live poll. The results should be interesting with an all-star character list backed with an all-star acting list. I don't see anyone running away with it.

I like the choice, I can understand his distaste for the role. He portrayed all these great characters in now classic movies: YevgrafPrince Feisal,Colonel NicholsonProfessor Marcus,  Holland, The D'Ascoyne Family  among others over the years. But, all anyone wanted to talk about was Obi Wan in the twilight of his career.

Congrats on a great poll! :)
Maybe you could remove the 's' from Oscars in the title? I think "Oscar Winners'..." sounds a bit better.
