@dcandmarvelcomicfan: Yep. I still remember the days when people endlessly invoked the "HE BEAT ODSTS!!!" fight as proof that he could outfight the likes of Captain America and Deathstroke. Good times.

@dcandmarvelcomicfan: Every character here deserves to be, but yeah, the wank for Kratos and MC is particularly bad. Although, Master Chief wank seems to have leveled off in recent years. Kratos wank will never die though. :(

I think you may have missed Morgan le Fay.

@riddlersriddle: I think he is the worst of both worlds; all of the Joker's relentless evil, but without anything that makes the Joker cool and compelling; he lacks the humor, he lacks the cunning and intelligence, his relationship to Batman is nowhere near as interesting, he trades Joker's ambiguous past for a fairly uninteresting one, etc.

Basically, Zsasz is just as vile as Joker, but without any of the things that make Joker an awesome villain whose worth paying attention to in spite of that fact. He's just another loathsome serial killer, and one who I find thoroughly uncool.

@riddlersriddle: It's hard to think of any other explanation. Nearly every other character on this list is widely adored. So I don't know why so many people would downvote it. Except just to be mean maybe. *Shrugs*

@riddlersriddle: Well, the list is in alphabetical order.

I'm glad you like it though. Lot of people gave a thumbs down for this list, and I'm not sure why. Finn haters perhaps?

@riddlersriddle: Really? That's a surprise. It's a fairly well known aspect of his character.

But I'm glad you liked the list! If you could, I would appreciate it if you gave a "thumbs up" to some of my other lists also, some of which got bombarded with thumbs-downs for some reason.

@mrmonster: Well, I liked it more than GR 1 for several reasons, including the fact that I felt it captured the badassery of GR much more than the first film, which made him a campy joke. I also liked the twist of Zarathos being a former angel with blue fire (an idea I used in my own Marvel Universe because I liked it so much).

And though the execution was poor, I do like the premise of a devil kid who rejects his evil destiny (that is after all what Hellboy is). This isn't even a third as good as Hellboy obviously, but I still like the basic premise. So is it a great film? Oh hell no. But I still enjoyed some of it more than many of these other films.
