Empire's Top 50 Comic characters list

If the Ivory Tower is the brain of the board, and the Transformers discussion is its heart, then General Discussions is the waste disposal pipe. Or kidney. Or something suitably pulpy and soft, like 4 week old bananas.

discuss.

if you wanna.

Number one appears to be based on chronology rather than mad skills.

some interesting choices - also worth looking at the voting buttons - lot of Deadpook fans out there... :)

Mmmm. Flicked through this earlier in the week. Was glad to see the likes of Sparks and Spider make it.

Disappointed to see no Yorick, but hardly surprised.

Scandalous absence of V, though. Unless I'm just blind or something.

Shout out for the Saint of Killers entry having the crappiest spoiler warning ever. Here's a spoiler warning, if haven't read preacher, or finished reading it, don't read the saint of killers entry.

If we're talking Preacher... gotta love Herr Starr.

Interesting that DC got the Top 3.

Will have a proper read of it later.

Lots of love to 2000AD in this one.

John Constantine? Above Spidey?

Only one Watchmen character up there, kinda surprising.

Spawn shoulda been higher imo. At least above that aardvark with a sword, wtf was that?

I'd say Death's Head deserves to be in the Top 50, but I'm biased. Wouldn't be surprised if the freelance peacekeeping agent gets a film one day, yes?

Joss Whedon doing the Wonder-woman movie...

Eliza Dusku could own that role
