What's that in sky? It's a bird! It's a plane! No! it's the 2012 version of Comic Vine's Top 100 Superheroes!

Superheroes are everywhere and can be in anyone. We've progressed since we did the first Superhero list back in 2011 and we've improved the then flawed system, so all the bugs are out. I look forward to seeing what the results will be!

NOTE: this is not necessarily character who APPEAR IN 2012, but a favorite character list MADE IN 2012

What we're done in the past:

The Nominators

We collected the initial nominators who included: batkevin74, Blacklightning13, Blood1991, cyberchop979, Gambit1024, haydenclaireheroes, jonEsherfey, kfhrfdu_89_76k, Liberty, Monarch_Chronicle, nickthedevil, PikminMania, Raiiyn, RazzaTazz, Sandman_, The_Tree, TheCrowbar, TheMinister, Wildvine, X35, YoungJustice and YourNeighborhoodComicGeek

Each of the 22 nominated 5 character each for a total of 110 characters.

Community Nominations

Then, the community nominated 90 additional characters to make a total of 200 characters. The community also had the chance to co-sign (in other words add a single point to their favorites). We had 71 Co-signers including:

How did you rank the characters with the same number of co-signs ?

So is this our favourite characters of 2012 or our favourite characters in general?

look at the top line right above "What we've done in the past"

the Best of the Month (plugging that poll) decides favorites of a given month and we'll see about an end of the year poll (Best of the Year?) so favorates of a month/year are taken care of, so this is just favorates in general to illustrate our community's oppinions and such.

How did you rank the characters with the same number of co-signs ?

I just let it be alphabetized I didn't tie break or anything (that's later on...). If you look at number 2 and 3 there is a perfect example. Dick Grayson is above Gambit not because they had more cosigns, but because D comes before G. I mean, I usually alphabetize the list so iet's easier for voters, but I was told people wanted an inital order.

Now, this only a visual thing. It doesn't garentee that characters will be on the list or who will be number on. Batman had 25 co-signs (next highest was Gambit/Nightwing with 23). However, if someone used all their 5 to vote for say Wolverine who had 20 co-signs, that would mean I was adding not just 5 votes, but 5 times 5 points in other words 25 pts (because FOVs are worth more than cosigns). Would that mean Wolverine would win? Not sure...depends on who votes for other characters, but it would help...
