I think we should clarify what B list is as I'm seeing a lot of Nightwing and Green Arrow and I don't see how they're B list. They have their own solo titles and are vastly popular.

Anyway, here's my list:

1. Maria Hill

2. Jet Black

3. Colossus

@rideaspacecowboy: Aquaman is NOT a B lister, he's been an A guy for a while now... since Peter David wrote him basically. And Sentry and Omega Kid are NOT B listers... they are C listers imv.

How do you define B-Lister?

im not sure how the OP defines B-lister but heres mine, first its not an A-lister

its an A-Lister if:

if the common non-comic reader recognises the hero, (founding members of Super Friends JLA (Nightwing counts)/ in the Avengers movies, spiderman, etc)

if the character is well known enough that they don't dare redo the origin story, but just because it hasn't happened for a character doesn't mean they are an A-Lister

B-Lister can also be included, when they havent done anything of great importance, every A-lister has done the impossible, many times, if a character has never once done an impossible feat of awesome (stop time, reverse time, traverse space stopped the sun from going out (hal Jordan) there are exceptions of course, I consider Jason Todd a B-lister, though his impossible feat is to almost kill Batman

If he is brought in as a ringer he can't be a B-lister.

than if he's too majorly obscure, Id say it might be a C-lister (a few from Batman TAS that appeared breifly in comics, Roxy Rocket, The Judge, Lock Up i consider all C-listers)

theres my rough definition, im sure you can find others

It depends on how you define A-lister and B-lister. I tend to only categorize five characters from each publisher as A-list characters: Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash, and Green Lantern from DC, and Spider-man, Wolverine, Captain America, Iron Man, and Thor from Marvel.
