    Why are some characters like Superman and Wonder Woman listed more than once? Superman is #3, #100, and #143.

    Yes, fans of other media would definitely have Vic on the list, while some of the others listed here would be recognized either under different codenames or not be seen at all.

    People add them in again, not knowing they are already there. Just pay attention to the top 100.
    Done with DC. Can't handle the constant whiplash! Time to go on a hiatus!

    There's some kind of sample selection bias when you consider that Harley ranks only 20th place.

    Disappointed but not surprised that Superman lost out to Batman. Surprised and disappointed that Wonder Woman lost out to Hal and Barry. Surprised but pleased that Martian Manhunter came up higher than "Shazam," which has to be another selection bias kind of thing, but I'm still happy about it.

    Curious that Ted Kord did so well when Jaime didn't even make the top 50, even though he's by far got more push than Ted does. Score one for Ditko I guess. Then again, Question lost out to Rorschach, so... yeah.

    Real happy my boy Damian was 23. Just read the early work by Grant Morrison and I never thought this character would be has loved as he is now. Real happy other characters besides the Superman and Batman family are on the list like Mr. Miracle and Ted Kord. Both are great characters with great stories that deserve it. One thing that surprised me was how high Babs was on the list in comparison to the other Robin's besides Dick. I wonder if that has to do with her returning to the Batgirl role or her past as Oracle.

    I'd argue all three of those characters have been presented more dynamically than Cyborg has in comics, especially in the last few years. In relation to the other Titans, Nightwing has the long-standing character legacy going for him, Donna seems to attract a particularly rabid group of fans, and Raven, Gar, and Kori all have bigger personalities than Cyborg does. He's a great character within a team setting, against those other personalities, but the efforts to make him a standalone character have pretty much only resulted in demonstrating that he's kinda boring without anyone to play off of.

    Damian was higher last poll so not happy especially when directionless characters that are pretty much chasing their tails or going backwards are before him Jason and Tim but this is the same website that Had Damian as the best Robin so I'm not surprised

    I'm wondering if some among the hardcore are annoyed about Cyborg retconned from the Titans to the League.

    Same with some still angry that Ted Kord seemed to be killed off to make way for Jaime.

    Im surprised that Tim Drake is still that high on this list, his Appreciation thread has far less posts the ones of the other ex-Robins.

    If you remove the fan art in the Damian thread, there are maybe 30 pages of real posts

    Tim is a likeable character, they just have jacked him in the last 8 years.
