CV's Top 100 Science Fiction and Fantasy Characters List
Heghlu'meH QaQ jajvam! [Translalation from Klingon to English: Today is a good day to die!] It's also a good day to create a top 100 list of fantasy and Science Fiction Characters! :D
The genres of Science Fiction and Fantasy have entwined into our pop culture. Television shows like Star trek paved the way for stories to go where no one had gone before. Even earlier, writers like Jules Verne and H. G. Wells suprised and astonished us with tales of time travel, submarines, invading aliens, invisible men and so much more. Writers like J. M. Barrie dared us us stay forever young and battle pirates over mystical islands. L. Frank Baum, J. R. R. Tolkien, Lewis Carrol, J. K. Rowling, H.P. Lovecraft and so many others introduced us to worlds beyond our comprehension and allowed us to visit those places. The genres of Science Fiction and Fantasy are in our hearts and minds. They inspire us to dream and do great things. So, it seems fitting that we should create list of powerful characters of these genres.
I would like to thank all the user who wrote nomination reasons. I would also like all my great nominators and those who went above and beyond their call of duty (you know who you are...). Lastly, I would like to thank Spiderbat87 for stepping into the role of Nominator, even though he said didn't want to at first (thanks for changing your mind!).
We had 22 nominators. They include: Avenging-x-bolt, Aztek the Lost, BiteMe-Fanboy, Bloodwolfassassin, Deranged Midget, Doctor!!!!!, feebadger, HammerTron, Haydenclaireheroes, Icarusflies, IrishX, kingjoeg, Lazystudent, Liberty, Nickthedevil, PikminMania, RedheadedAtrocitus, ReVamp (honorable mention as he didn't nominate, but he did write a nomination reason), SirMethos, Tunsieon. Plus, Spiderbat87 and a fellow named teoP.
Each nominator nominated 5 characters each to make an initial 100 list. In the following step, the community stepped in and added a total of 194 characters to the list.
As of last list (Comic Vine's Top 100 Batman Universe Stories), the voting step which I call "cosigning" (*insert math joke here*) became a prominate tool in ordering the list. To co-sign means to agree with a nomination. Each cosign was worth 1 pt each and each nomination started off with 1 cosign (it's nominator). These things can possibly move a character up a position on the list if they have enough cosigns.
We had a total of 45 cosigners (plus myself), including:
Aztek the Lost
Final Over Voting
When the Community was satisfied that we had enough characters (I thank Liberty for adding about 70 of those characters...of course I'm not annoyed at the overwhelming number of those characters! :P), I opened the polls for users to vote for the Final Order of the list. Like the times before, each user was given 5 votes and they could use it however they wanted. Each vote was worth 5pts.
This time, we had 54 voters (including myself), including:
Aztek the Lost
After that, I totaled the number of points for each character (combining the 1pt cosigns with the 5pt F.O. Votes). With that, I ordered this list and WALLA! The list is born!
