Greatest 12 Characters of the 2000's

Who is on this list, what this list is about and how they got on the list!

 Before Sentry...Superman
Synopsis 
This is one of a set of lists I made showing a progression of the greatest characters in a heroic style throughout time.  Focusing for the most part on one decade at a time.  The heroes that we know and love today were inspired by heroes before them.  Some are even real people who moved into folklore.  Before comics there were pulp magazines.  Before that there was dime novels and before that was the penny dreadfuls.  There were many others as well like Gothic novels, story papers and yes even a real novel.  

This List 
This is the list of the greatest characters to come out between 2000 and 2009.  These would be characters who will go on to be the biggest influences in comics either directly or indirectly.  In other words these will become great inspirations to future comic characters and stories.  Right now they are in order of year 

New Stuff 
This is where I would start these series of lists.  After you check out this one go back into time and see who came before by clicking the links below.  Some may Surprise you. It is hard to see who would have the best impact in a short time but this is the best so far.  As you can see I had a little trouble finding good candidates on this one because not much time has passed.  Some of these are solid, some were suggested and others were simply put to fill the list.  As you can see I need help with this one and would be grateful to your suggestions.  Right now they are in order of year.

@Mr.Q:   If that means you have a suggestion.  I would love to hear it.  This is a tough one to research.

@Liberty: X-23 2004 maybe. Sentry 2000 people love to hate him. Kick-Ass 2008 I think. not a lot pf good ones though its hard to tell if they will be influential or stand the test of time when they are only a few years old. as for my earlier comment I was referring to the rip in space time we talked about earlier.

I'd say Rick Grimes of The Walking Dead has to qualify here.  TWD has spawned its own TV show, renewed for a second season after the first episode aired.  That ain't bad.

@cbishop:   You make a good argument.  I added him.  Zombies scare the hell out of me so I don't read 'em.

Oh and how do I hate him. Noh Varr's been on a tear lately and he's developing a following just putting it out there. After Dark Avengers the sky or comic limbo is the limit. But Marvel often milks potential cash cows. Nemesis will be remembered for something even if it is movie and comic rip offs.There is always the Crimson Avenger, well the good one came around a bit earlier. Ohh how about Planetary and The Authority, more so Jenny Quantom and Midnighter.

Hard to come up with any good characters created in the last decade that's made much of an impact, but some others to consider are Larfleece, The Hood, Runaways and of course Bob Agent of Hydra :p

I agree in a lot of these characters.

No Runaways ?
Posted by Liberty
@MatKrenz: I would be glad to add some.  Who would you suggest?  I need four more players.
Posted by ReVamp

Runaways. You've just grown in my respect, a lot.

Impressive list, but I would vouch that The Elite along with Manchester Black as foes against Superman in Action Comics of early 2000 were an epoch to the Superman franchise.

@Eyelash30: Enough to be one of the 12 greatest of the decade?

Cool list... But one typo... It's X-Men Evolution, not X-Men Evaluation!! :P

I giggled when I read that at first, thinking what would be an X-Men Evaluation... ewwww....

You forgot to add four infos. Also, the introduction has one typo. Or maybe there are more, I dunno.

Well...You will make the next one in the year 2020, right? If you shall, that would be awesome. More awesome, though, would be if you`d make one each decade, till you die. Then again, there are many things that could ruin that.

@kfhrfdu_89_76k: I don't plan on dying.  =)

@Liberty:

Plans can be ruined.
