Well if we were talking to Captain Hammer, he would declare that he's the world's best (good looking) superhero. Still, that hasn't stopped the Firefly loving fan base to question why hasn't their Captain Malcolm Reynolds, aka Nathan Fillion, taken on a bigger superhero like Green Lantern or whatever other character comes to mind when it pertains to fantasy casting.
