Top Five Month (check here to see an archive of all the top five lists featured so far) continues with a look at characters who debuted in cartoons based on comic books and were then brought over to the comic books that the cartoons were based on (in other words, not characters like Mickey, Donald or the Simpsons). Oh, and by “brought over to the comics,” I mean in the normal continuity, not cartoon tie-in comics.

Top Five Members of the JLU Who Should Also Be Members of the “Real” JLA

Top Five Month ((check here to see an archive of all the top five lists featured so far) continues with a look at the Justice League Unlimited.

Top Five Mike Zeck G.I. Joe Covers

Top Five Month (check here to see an archive of all the top five lists featured so far) continues with the great Mike Zeck, who did dozens of brilliant covers for G.I. Joe comics.

In any event…

Here are the top five…

Top Five Month (check here to see an archive of all the top five lists featured so far) continues with the contemporaries of the 1993 Marvel Annuals, the 1993 DC Annuals, which created new characters for their Bloodlines crossover (aliens were attacking humans, and every once in awhile would awaken powers in the human rather than kill him/her).

For whatever reason, the Bloodlines characters ended up being a lot better than the characters created for Marvel’s Annuals, so the top five will be a lot tougher to determine…

Here are the top five…
