.... you who are rich and who's troubles are few, may now come around to see my point of view...  
.... few things in life are as wondrous I know, like the magic that comes from Edgar Allan Poe... 
.... his dark mystery shows always made me feel at home, because all that I loved I loved alone...

The Sandman Wesley Dodds he would leave  an origami calling card at each crime he stopped with a poem on it along these lines... 
 

  There is no land beyond the law

     Where tyrants rule with unshakable power!

     'Tis but a dream from which the evil wake

     To face their fate, their terrifying hour!

like the Riddler he's kind of a poet.

What is this? A list of all poets who have their own wiki page on CV?

What about...

  • William Shakespeare
  • Oscar Wilde
  • Dante -- One of the most important and influential Italian poet; writer of the Divine Comedy.
  • Marquis De Sade -- Controversial and revolutionary; shouldn't be read by the wrong people nonetheless a true poet; check out "Juliette, or Vice Amply Rewarded" ("L'Histoire de Juliet, ou les Prospérités du vice"): "How delightful are the pleasures of the imagination! In those delectable moments, the whole world is ours; ... The means to every crime is ours, and we employ them all, we multiply the horror a hundredfold." ... cough!
  • Groot -- Master of repetition and alliteration and greatest poet of Planet X.

    I AM GROOT!
    I AM GROOT!
    I
    AM
    GROOT!

This is fun!

You should add short descriptions to the list; at least to the comic characters so we know why they made the list. A few more:

Another great cartoon and comic character who speaks in rhymes is the Road Runner (or Beep Beep the Road Runner).

My name is Beep Beep
and my speed is quite ample.
If you wish, I'd be pleased
to give you a sample!

Also, all the Green Lantern oaths (and rhymes) come to mind but no single person (writer) did come up with all these oaths and there's no concept page either. Anyhow, here's a nice one:

"The Blackest Night falls from the skies,
The darkness grows as all light dies.
We crave your hearts and your demise,
By my black hand, the dead shall rise!"
-- Black Lanterns' oath.

Interestingly (to me at any rate) someone took the time to add a comic adaptation of

Baudelaire but they didn't bother to create an authorial (creator) page...

=?

Edited by The Poet

@kuonphobos: well, it was added to the site by superkitty who I'm not surprised didn't bother to add a creator page...

That's funny. I thought you might say that. How did that page get 65 points anyhow? This wiki has a mind of it's own.

Baudelaire would have made a nice addition along with Blake, Byron, De Sade and Crowley. I like my poetry a little on the dark and gothic side.
