In honor of Father’s day, here’s some of the best fictional dads out there. None can compete with MY dad, of course, but these eight try.
1. Logan- Logan
Initially reluctant to accept the ‘dad’ role, Logan finally allows himself to see Laura as his daughter.
2. Atticus Finch- To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
He may not play with his kids like the other dads in the neighborhood, but he’ll teach them to read and encourage them to think. Plus, he never looks down on kids for being young.
3. Ripred- Underland Chronicles by Suzanne Collins
You never thought he used to be a dad. But some of the best scenes in the series were with him and Lizzie.
4. Mr. Bennet- Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
He supports Elizabeth’s refusal to marry Mr Collins, and is always willing to talk with her.
5. Wilfred Mott- Doctor Who
So maybe he’s a grandpa, but whatever. Not only is he one of the Doctor’s best companions, but he clearly loves Donna and supports her, even when others won’t. He’s always willing to watch the stars with her.
6. Alfred Pennyworth- Batman
Even superheroes need a voice of reason in their lives. And would Batman listen to anyone but his butler and father-figure?
7. Pa Ingalls- The Little House Books by Laura Ingalls
He’ll fight a bear to get back to his family, even if the bear turns out to be a tree stump.
8. Jean Valjean- Les Miserables by Victor Hugo
He’s a convict, a mayor, and superhero-strong. What little girl could ask for a better daddy?
