NEW CV Moderators’ Favorite Character List! (link to actual list)

Earlier this year, I hosted Comic Vine Moderators’ Favorite Character list [Note for those new users out there, that was prior to me actually being a mod so I was just a host...or as Aztek put it at the time: "Moderator of Moderators"]. Now, 6 months later, another Moderator favorite character list is released, this time focusing on the favorites of 4 new mods.

On June 6, 2012, the site shook in fear at the introduction of three new mods: Mercy_ (*cough Dark Huntress cough*), k4tzm4n, and last but not least (in my humble oppinion): The Poet (they tried to get teoP_ehT, but he was a no show...). Then on June 20(?), 2012, another sheriff arrived in the form of a crazy person named RazzaTazz! So the "trinity" became the "Fab 4".

Basically we have been mods for about two months, so we decided to make a list to show what WE like. Similar to last time, I asked for the year we got into comics, the first series and comic we read, and for a comment(for YOUR benefit). However, this time, we picked our top 13 favorite characters and ordered them alphabetically.

Interestingly enough only 5 of those 14 characters appear on this list :P

RazzaTazz

  • Year Got into Comics: 1997
  • First Series read: Wonder Woman (I think it was two). My dad got me reading them when I was around 8
  • First Comic Book Read: That I would have no idea about, though a logical guess would be Wonder Woman #1, but I might have read one of those superhero colouring books when I was a wee lass, where you colour in the story as you read it. [Poet edit: ha ha she said "colour" :P]
  • Comment: "I am the Lizard Queen!"

k4tzm4n

  • Year Got into Comics: I read them casually as a kid but really got into it in 2006
  • First Series read: Civil War is what inspired me to get back into comics
  • First Comic Book Read: I don't honestly know, but the first I purchased as a kid was Gambit #1
  • Comment: "What can I say? I'm a sucker for anti-heroes."

Mercy_

  • Year Got into Comics: 2009
  • First Series read: Uncanny X-Men
  • First Comic Book Read: Honestly, I'm not entirely sure. It was either Phoenix: Endsong, or it was part of Chuck Dixon's run. I got them at about the same time. Tempted to say it was around Uncanny X-Men #410, though.
  • Comment: "Sometimes you fight what you are, and sometimes you give in to it. And some nights you just don’t want to fight yourself anymore, so you pick someone else to fight."

This list was really quite easy to make and we didn't have to work that hard to make it.

You humble me, my dear sir.

That's strange. Most of you have only been reading for 3ish years

That is not a bad thing the more the merrier i just find it ironic is all.

The moderation on this forum is very professional.

Except mercy is a little cold from time to time haha

You should look at the other list too. earliest reader that has modship started reading comics back in the 1980s (side note: started to type 1880s...whoops :P )

Well done :D <3

(Mercy alt)

@The Poet: Right on, hey i was certainly not criticizing. I'm 22 and i started reading comics when i was about 7 so that's 1997. There are definitely people in the world who have been reading a lot longer than I.

Funnily enough the first comic i remember reading was Booster Gold number 3. ( I inherited my dad's collection from the late 70's and 80's) haha

Indeed it is (minus the wrongly placed apostrophe in the picture, but whatever...)

I just realized something...i could change almost all of your cosigns to one of your alternate names :P

Great list guys, and congrats again for beoming Moderators. You guys work so hard for this site

#11 Posted by The Poet (8156 posts) - - Show Bio

@Romulus9000: what would be interesting would be a survey of CV users to see when they started reading comics and what would be their favorate top [insert number here] characters would be.

of course, we would have to define what we mean by "got into comics" because we have a loose definition, because I started reading comics in 2004, but not regularly until I started collecting them in 2009...

Lol at Tiger and Darkwing Duck. Good list dudes and dudettes you inspire me to go for Mod status so I can add my three favorites you guys didn't list.

@The Poet: you know, if you could figure out how to establish and move forward on an idea like that i would certainly be willing to help out.

Well, for DW i did love his comic series (well done...sorry to see it go...hopefully Marvel will consider it along with so many other titles it should consider doing...)

as for Tigger...What can I say? I have to include my all time favorite superhero! :D (you think I am joking but I'm serious...)

oh, to what you said before...good luck! look at this way: when I hosted the previous incarnation of this list earlier in the year I was not a mod, so I tell you: reach for your goals...and maybe I'll do an updated version of this 2.0 list...

@The Poet: I don't think I'm in your league... You really do alot of awesome stuff for this site, but I don't plan on giving up on Modum either. Maybe one day.

I figure if I did that, I would set it up as an ongoing project (forum as aposed to blog so I don't get hundreds of alerts). it would be a thread where people post in the following form (to steal from my bio which I did when I created the last list and could not partisapate):

I would probably set up an alphetical ordered CV list which I would add cosigns to similar to the form you see on the list above. the forum OP would probably be edited to include the parisapating users, ording them the same way we did above (oldest to newest reader).

like I said, the "year got into comics" would have to be better defined, but it is possible...

@The Poet: Interesting i look forward to participating, so you got into comics late 09 and then joined up with CV how did you manage moderator status. Just knew the right people? I ask because this site has been up since what, 2006?
