But we normal folks aren't the only ones making New Year's Resolutions, and while comic book characters tend to go less for things like "hit the gym more often" and "quit smoking" and more for stuff like "eradicate all crime" and "utterly destroy the accursed Mr. Fantastic," they're not above the desire for self-improvement.
So to find out just what our favorite heroes wanted to accomplish in 2011, we went straight to the source and reached out to the creators who write their comics.
