Glad to see there was at least a *little* more support for Hawkwoman and Lady Blackhawk than just me….

This is funny. I voiced so much displeasure over Mr. Mind not making the Top 100 in prior comments. Then I saw he wasn’t in the entire list…and I figured my survey somehow wasn’t counted. Then I went back to my email and remembered I dropped him off my own list to include Mr. Mxyzptlk.

Still very surprised *nobody* voted for him. That much ambivalence over 52? I thought at least the Skeets/Mind meld would get something for the big reveal. Skeets only got 4 points despite Booster Gold’s strong showing. Ah well.

I had never heard of Gnaark until today, reading ‘Showcase Presents Teen Titans Volume Two’…and he’s on someone’s Top Ten list of DC characters. Weird.

I completely agree, this is one more point that could have gone to Polar Boy, who only had the seven I gave him.

Ah, there’s the last character on my list. All the way down at #233. And it looks like I was the only one who really liked post-ZH Triad.

Wow, thanks for the full list. I’m going to have to look up quite a few of those character names too.

Oh, and I spotted a couple repeats on the list. Anti-Monitor, Green Lantern Tomar Re, and Kingdome Come Wonder Woman all show up twice.

So if I understand this correctly, my first place vote for Barnabas the Dog was worth 10 points. Which means I’m the ONLY person who voted for him.

I’m really really special or really really lame.
Or really really both.

Wow, what an awesome list. I had a feeling that those on my list that didn’t break the Top 100 would be really, really far down the list (Prez, Kid Eternity, Egg Fu). I’m sad I’m the only one who voted for Hoppy the Marvel Bunny, but that’s drowned out by how charmed I am that 9 people voted for the Funky Flashman and even more chose Arak, Son of Thunder (not me, but still). I’m also delighted by the people who picked Gnaark, the Composite Superman and Cheeks, the Toy Wonder. Good show.

Ok. Who voted for Gnaark.

I’m sensing a groundswell of support for a new ongoing series starring Gnaark, Java and Anthro.

They’d have to fight Vandal Savage a lot, but still find time to tackle other Stone Age relics who kept popping up in the Silver Age, like “the Super-Cavemen of 15,000 BC” who once fought the Blackhawks on flying skiis.

Aztek! Resurrection Man! Ethan Harrow! Good to know they got some love.

What? No votes for Ch’p!

11 of ‘em actually, Andy. Right up there with Grant Morrison and the Inferior Five.

Any list that has Booster Gold above Catwoman is circular-filed. Sorry, charlie.

I’m not surprised that nobody else voted for the Scarlet Skier, but in a way I sort of am.

Well Manga Khan got 2 votes. (Neither of them mine.)

The next step: getting an artist to do a collage of characters for each place, a la Who’s Who’s. For example: Doomday raging while Ryan, G’Nort and Val look a little worried. Or better yet: each character is seen operating his own store on Danny the Street, complete with frilly exteriors.

You just go right ahead and try to put frilly exteriors on the Lobo store.

The world is doomed! Cyborg Superman got more votes than Grodd!

I wish I had voted for Barnabas.

I did get the only vote for Ambrose, the Frog Prince.

Did all the votes for Shade the Changing Man get lumped together? All I saw was the Ditko version, but my vote was for the Milligan/Vertigo Shade.

Interesting that Flash is number 3 but they can’t make a go of his book.
