Love my Egyptian amazon

Who doesn't, tbh?

Me. I despise Artemis.

Still, you did a nice RT for Rebirth Artemis. Would you say she's more powerful than her New Earth counterpart? She seems like it, considering NE Artemis has been put below Wolverine. This one seems more Spider-Man level based on the feats.

@thor_ul: Thank you, I'm glad you think so.

And to be fair, I never said that Darth Vader was the first tragic villain, just that his is an iconic villain archetype that includes as part of it's criteria being tragic. Bit of a difference.

I'm considering doing a Luke Skywalker one too.

@thor_ul: Thoughts? I got the idea from you.

I have to say that I find it strange that I've gotten more hate for my 100 Favorite Female characters list than for the list that has me saying I liked the Green Lantern and Daredevil movies. Weird, no?

I can see this one's already gotten two downvotes. Not surprising really. Lot of fan favorites on this list, it was bound to attract negative attention. *Shrugs* Oh well. I don't take back a thing I've said here. Xenia Onatopp sucks, and most of the others are good characters, but still overrated.

Hm...now THAT's curious; five people have voted this one down. The above poster voting it down is obvious, but who are my other four detractors? Unless someone can downvote the same list multiple times, which I doubt...

"Mostly the 2003 cartoon version, though the 2012 cartoon version ain't bad either. Not the 80s cartoon version though."

So in other words... you like the boring Mary Sue versions... in fact, I see quite a few Mary Sues on this list.

"Lady Arkham version only, who's one of my favorite Batman villains. Most other versions are OK but not my favorite at best, and boring as hell at worst."

There are also quite a few boring characters on your list who don't have much of a personality and are pretty one-note.

You can like whoever you want, but I'm sorry, this list makes you look like a hypocrite.

No, not really. You realize that in the 80s cartoon April was a useless damsel in distress, right? She's much more interesting and capable in the two other cartoons than in the original where does virtually nothing except be rescued constantly. I also disagree that she's "a Mary Sue", considering both versions have flaws, neither one is a character the plot bends over backwards for (unless you count episodes that focus on April, but there are episodes that focus on all of the main characters individually), and neither one is universally adored by everyone else in the cast.

And as to your claim that there are quite a few Mary Sues on my list, I completely disagree. It certainly doesn't help that you can't actually be bothered to list any examples, which just makes me inclined to think you're completely full of it.

I also disagree that the characters on this list are boring (and again, you can't be bothered to list any specific examples). Certainly not compared to a generic Lois Lane clone. I think all of the characters here have as much or more personality as most versions of Vicki Vale I've ever seen, and the ones that you could MAYBE argue don't are at least cooler and more badass.

I also don't appreciate being called a hypocrite without cause, considering you failed to actually list any characters who you consider to be boring or one-note or actually give much of an argument for why you consider some of my choices to be wrong or bad. And, to be frank, I don't like generic Lois Lane clones, and none of them are on this list. So I fail to see hypocrisy on my part, and again, do not appreciate having the label thrown my way when you have not done a damned thing to actually explain WHY my choices are boring or Mary Sues (a grossly overused term in general).

Although I generally roll my eyes at lists like thse, I laughed at multiple points reading your descriptions. Well done lol

And for what it's worth I largely agree with your list (at least the ones I have seen).

I actually thought Superman IV was better than III though, and I do like The Last Stand.

Thank you. I'm curious as to which of my arguments most got a chuckle out of you though.

Agree with some, not others.

Such as? Because I can tell you that I have seen each and every one of these has been fanwanked on CV or elsewhere at some point or another, and some of them get it constantly (Arrow, Arrow characters, Mace Windu, Hit-Girl, MCU Thor, Ultron, and Hawkeye, etc.). Only one who's fanwanking I know of only by reputation is Saitama, but I've seen examples of the others.

Well, I think you managed to gather together every major and semi-major minority hero Marvel's got.
