Poll: Vote for the Character of the Month: 7/14 (VOTE IN HERE!) (402 votes)

Bane 8%
Boba Fett 14%
Bullseye 4%
Cheshire 3%
Deadshot 8%
Deathstroke 24%
Lady Shiva 4%
Lobo 8%
Mystique 11%
Taskmaster 16%

Moon Knight Month is almost over (sorry, Khonshu!), so that means it's time to pick our next Character of the Month! July is just a week away and we're giving you 5 days to choose the next character that'll receive a full month of love and attention. Our first theme was A-list heroes and last month's theme was anti-heroes, but now we're giving some of the evil people attention. We have 10 assassins and/or mercenaries on the poll and now it's time for you to select a winner!

Unfortunately, Elektra was on last month's anti-heroes poll and one of the basic rules is a character cannot appear in the poll two months in a row (it's just not fair to the others, is it?). However, we still have a very cool cast of fiends to choose from. Your options for this month are Bane, Boba Fett, Bullseye, Cheshire, Deadshot, Deathstroke, Lady Shiva, Lobo, Mystique, and Taskmaster. The winner will appear in the Question of the Week several times, maybe have a few Battle of the Week segments, and receive their very own articles (Best Covers, Best Battles, Must Read Stories, maybe more). Which mercenary/assassin will earn the honor of becoming the next Character of the Month? Well, you can play a part in deciding that, so go vote and then explain why a one of these characters deserves the praise!

Voting will stay open until Friday morning (ET). We'll post an updated article announcing the winner shortly after the poll is closed. Now, go support your top choice!

Want to make a theme and character suggestions for an upcoming edition of Character of the Month? Let us know below or tell us via Twitter.

Deathstroke Bane or Lobo now that is a choice...

#8 Edited by Wardishy (1101 posts) - - Show Bio

Feels like this last year has been Deathstroke Year, we don't really need a Deathstroke month!

With that in mind, I'm going to vote for my man Floyd Lawton.

Deadshot. My favorite chain smoking, mustached assassin.

#12 Posted by Life_Without_Progress (4841 posts) - - Show Bio

Deathstroke gets my vote but I love Bane, Taskmaster and Deadshot too.

Oh come on, this is barely a question for me. Slade Wilson all the way! Though I suppose Bane would be a close second...

#15 Edited by Omnicrono (2682 posts) - - Show Bio

I've been interested in learning more about Lady Shiva beyond what I've read in Knight Quest. Looks like Deathstroke is going to take the poll though... yawn.

The quintessential bounty hunter, Boba Fett for the win!

#20 Posted by DarthAznable (10417 posts) - - Show Bio

Don't let that nerd Deathstroke win. TASKMASTER ARMY UNITE!

come on tasky.

Deathstroke. He's starting to run away with this already and I don't think it'll change really.

#24 Posted by Dstick88 (122 posts) - - Show Bio

I'd only choose lobo if it was the new lobo, always found traditional lobo to be incredibly uninteresting.

#25 Posted by Doctor_Malekith (59 posts) - - Show Bio

I went with Bullseye. I really like most of these characters, so it was a hard decision.

#26 Posted by Jonny_Anonymous (39955 posts) - - Show Bio

Not sure if he counts as a merc or assassin but I kinda wish Catman was on this list.

#27 Edited by LiveForever (338 posts) - - Show Bio

Taskmaster. Always Taskmaster.

#28 Posted by Autopsad (106 posts) - - Show Bio

Mystique !!! (not the Lawrence version but the true blue femme fatale !)

#29 Posted by k4tzm4n (39427 posts) - - Show Bio

Not sure if he counts as a merc or assassin but I kinda wish Catman was on this list.

He was on last month's anti-hero poll.

He was? Damn, I must have skimmed over him.

Boba Fett

#33 Posted by SpitfirePanda (1241 posts) - - Show Bio

I picked Boba Fett. I'm disappointed to see him lagging behind :(

#34 Posted by AllStarSuperman (26801 posts) - - Show Bio

I am disappointed that Slade is winning. Like he needs his own month. I voted Cheshire, but Deadshot and Bullseye would be cool.

#35 Posted by viin (855 posts) - - Show Bio

tough choice between Deathstroke and Lady Shiva

#36 Posted by ZhuRong (6729 posts) - - Show Bio

@viin: Agreed, they both are amazing fighters.

#37 Edited by TommytheHitman (4032 posts) - - Show Bio

Deadshot with Deathstroke and then Boba Fett.

#38 Edited by GrandHarrier (124 posts) - - Show Bio

@allstarsuperman: Moon Knight didn't need his own month. It has felt like a month of wasted content. Deathstroke, at least, is interesting so I am all for it.

#39 Posted by JoshuaDBr (597 posts) - - Show Bio

I voted Deadshot, even though Deathstroke is my favorite of this list. And it seems Deathstroke has got Deadshot beat. I can live with that.

#40 Posted by nappystr8 (1264 posts) - - Show Bio

Go Taskmaster!

#41 Posted by Lvenger (23135 posts) - - Show Bio

I was gonna vote for Deathstroke anyway but I see he's winning currently.

I was torn between Boba Fett and Deathstroke.

I new Deathstroke would be leading this. I voted for Lobo just because I think some funny could be added to the discussion.

The dude killed Santa man. SANTA!

#47 Posted by i_like_swords (20667 posts) - - Show Bio

Ah come on.. Slade? Really? We already have about 90 new Deathstroke threads per day on the Vine. Choosing someone like Boba Fett would make for far better discussion value, and it would also be promoting a less mainstream medium than mainstream Marvel/DC.

#48 Posted by MadeinBangladesh (9870 posts) - - Show Bio

Deathstroke easily. Boba Fett leading second? WTF

#49 Posted by Owie (4704 posts) - - Show Bio

I feel like it's helpful to go with a character who has a deep enough run of appearances to make worthwhile features on--enough to ask questions like, who was their best artist, volume, etc., plus to have enough feats for the battles. From my perspective, the best characters for that kind of thing are Boba Fett (my choice), Bane, Deathstroke, Lobo.

#50 Edited by Zelos797 (1194 posts) - - Show Bio

@allstarsuperman: Well to tell the truth Deathstroke probably got that many votes because people love him BUT I would be more interested to see other characters get a month over Deathstroke even though I do love him too. Yet I still voted for Deathstroke....
