CV's Top 100 Superhero List 2012
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!
I would like to thank all the nominators who worked a lot to bring you this list (more than they expected I'm sure). Also thank ReVamp and RazzaTazz for their thoughts and such. I would also like to thank everyone who participated in the list process.
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.
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:
Final Order Voting
As the title suggests 121 voters (plus some spammers and alternate accounts) used their 5 votes (each worth 5 times 1 cosign) to move their favorites up. The 121 included:
Baron Von Damron
After that we did a week of tie breaking where the Nominators (some of whom had forgotten they were actually nominators by the time we got to this step) were given the names of the characters who were tied and they voted for a ranking. This step is fairly new to our community projects so it actully took longer than anticipated (much longer...). Hopefully it will be more public and more organized next time...
Not sure what the next list will be, but I'm sure it'll be intersting. I'm sure there will be people who say, "this list is terricble [probably not their word] because ____ is too low / ____ is not there" (there usually are those sort of people). I do apprishate everyone's thoughts and I hope I will not come off as someone who doesn't like to hear people disagree with their own oppinions. The below list might not be everyone's personal top 100 superhero list, but it something which illustrates the tastes of the community. If you did not or were not able to vote/cosign/nominate, then I hope you are able to do so next time. However, the following is something made by users for the users. Huzzah!
