My very first fictional crush (who wasn't a cartoon - don't worry Prince Erick, you're still number one) was Jack from Newsies. Maybe it was the floppy hair, or the super thick (bad?) accent, or the snazzy dance moves. Maybe it was that he fought for the under dog and stuck it to the man whilst singing. Maybe it was because he became Batman. Either way, I was smitten and have remained so. He was the standard by which every character crush would be measured.
So what about you? Who was your first character crush? What was it about the character that drew you to them?
