Everybody who voted for Stingray is awesome

Fin Fang Foom is awesome.

I think # 168 is the first character I’ve never heard of.

Which one?

Woohoo, someone else from my list! Make mine FOOM!

This group is a whole clump of awesomeness, actually, even if I can only very dimly remember Cipher.

Yeah, some good characters there…. Now Marvel needs to assign the good writers to these guys, Spider-Man will sell no matter who is writing it. Get Mark Waid (sorry, first go to pop into my mind) on a Shroud comic and see how we go….

Man, Doug Ramsey. Perfect character for Claremont’s melancholy mutant minors. Maybe his untimely death was for the best. A mercy killing before Rob Liefeld could give him shoulder pads and a gun.

Sandman is that low?

Must be a reaction against the mischaracterization in Spidey3.

Wow. Sting Ray beat out Gravity. That’s…heartbreaking. I love Gravity. But Sting Ray? Sting Ray? Man, kids today.

If anything is responsible for Sandman’s “mischaracterization” its how he has been handled in the comics over the past few years. First he reformed and then, a few years ago, went back to being a bad guy. Since then his appearances have been few and far between.

Personally, I like him as both a hero AND a villain, but you can’t really have it both ways. (i.e. mid-late 90s Venom)

Man, what a GREAT bunch of characters. I think Doug Ramsey is the best POV character.I could probably go on about why each of these characters are great.

Maybe not Phylla.. No even her too.

Awesome, there’s two more from my list down: Dirk Anger and The Hood.


Hogun and Volstagg may get the votes, but Fandral gets the chicks!

Red Ghost got a First Place vote?

Who’s the commie?


Maybe the Super APES are the ones who REALLY got the vote.

People loves them some apes.


Fin Fan Foom put you in his pants!

I thought both sandman and rhino may have featured higher.

How did Ares make the Avengers roll-call – he has no love. Never mind Thor has returned to midgard and he hath mighty love.

So somehow I never noticed Amazing #155 had APES on it… that’s just weird. And people voted for them. I’m gonna have to go look those up…

I just love that Ares and The Hood (two characters that Bendis is pushing hard) are less popular than Stingray and The Shroud.

When was the last time the Shroud even showed up anywhere?
