5 Favorite Fictional Fathers

Holy cow, you never realize how many characters in books and movies actually lost their father until you try to think of 5 good ones… So we’re gonna do 5 fictional dads, not fathers, cause biology is not what makes a dad.

1. Joe West

He’s not only Iris’ father, he’s also Barry Allen’s dad (number 2), and he’s doing an amazing job with both of them. His biggest mistake was not telling Iris about Barry and making Barry promise to tell her either, but since he did that to protect her because he loved her, he was still being a good dad; even though it might have been the wrong choice. His relationship with Barry is heartwarming to watch – so yeah, Joe West is definitely an awesome dad.

2. Bobby Singer

He’s not the Winchesters‘ father, but he’s the only “dad” they ever really had. He’s the one who loved them and took care of them, and he’s the one setting them straight whenever they stray from their path. He’s always their to help them clean up their messes; he tells them when they f*ck sh*t up, but he’s still always there to help them get their heads back in the game and make things right. Who knows where Sam and Dean would be if it wasn’t for Bobby. He also happens to be one of the most amazing characters on the show, which makes him even more awesome.

3. Uncle Ben

Again, not technically a father, but he still is Peter Parker’s dad. He raised him and cared for him and loved him . And he has one of the best lines in the history of great lines. “Great power comes with great responsibility” – words to live by.

4. Luke Garroway

Another dad who’s not exactly a father. Just like Joe, Bobby and Uncle Ben, he was always the one there, and the only father Clary ever knew. He loves her as though she was his daughter, gets as angry with her as fathers do with their kids, and would still sacrifice everything for her. And he doesn’t just love her because he’s in love with her mother, but because of her, because of who she, Clary, is. He wouldn’t give up on her even if Jocelyn rejected him, and if you think that that’s not a father should be like, then I’m afraid I’m gonna have to tell you that you have a very severe case of the Wrong.

5. Arthur Weasley

Now here’s one who’s actually great with his own kids as much as other people’s. Just like Joe, he never even stopped to consider not taking in Harry or Hermione, and the Weasleys really aren’t that wealthy a family. And they already had seven kids before Harry came along, and they still treated him as one of their own. Arthur is the first father figure Harry knew who didn’t hate his guts, but actually loved him.

    • Yes! I so hope they bring Bobby back, even if it’s just for a couple of episodes a season. The boys could really use some help – and some ass-kicking for the bullsh*t they’ve done (mostly to each other, as usual)
