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!

Thank You's!

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.

The Poet

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...

Final Words

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!

Pretty solid list.  All but one of my boys made it.  Actually it was the girl I nominated that came up short.  Oh well.  =)

Solid list! I think it worked out better than last year's. Though I do wish there was some more Flash Thompson love. . . not even a Runner Up? Ah well, there's always next year.

Edited by butters911

All my favorites made the list-Spidey, the FF, Hank Pym, The Wasp and DD.

Edit: I dont think the Human Torch made it, but its cool cause he's my least favorite of the FF anyways

Its a shame more people haven't read Miracleman. He's Top Five.

@paperdemon: interesting...

If we do a 2013 version of this list maybe you'll be able to participate. Would be interesting to do this list with the 3.0 version of the voting system. Though it would also be cool to do some sort of twist. Maybe we'll do Top 100 Characters to expand this and so we don't have to deal with all the squabbling about "this guy isn't a hero" or "that guy isn't super!". We have time. We'll do a one or two lists before then anyway, so I'll have time to plan.

Overall, it's a solid list. The one person you left out that is bothering me is Johnny Blaze or any form of Ghost Rider!
