The Mary Sue Litmus Test further up the page is very witty.
Those can be fun. Of course, whether or not your character is well written and sympathetic to the reader is not necessarily a factor of how a character scores on that test. Even the "dreaded" Author Insert can be done with style...especially if the character who is inserted into the story has to face real challenges, take the consequences of his or her actions, and even fail sometimes.
