Poll Suggestion: Favorite Sidekick

​Sidekicks​​ are the friends and helpers of the main hero.​

​They can be almost any type of hero playing a secondary role, a normal character observing the action or a simply comic relief.​

​Sidekicks appear in close proximity to the main hero to highlight their character traits, usually by contrast.​

​Who is your favorite ​​sidekick​​?​
