Well I'd have to say that IMO the best 8 drop for Silver Age would be Silver Surfer. (I know he is reprinted, whatever)
That being said, my drop of choice on 8 is Bat-Mite, only because I like having initiative!
The best 8 in SA right now is Darkseid, because of the new 7 drop Silver Surfer making Endgame cost 1 less, Darkseid just plain ol' wins.
