Indiana wants me!

(29 Points) 2 of 24 Lists - Highest Ranking - #8  Mr Basehart

Appeal:
Rugged, adventurous, and man that smile!  Interesting fact: Harrison Ford can no longer smile like that without making it look sarcastic.


Bio:
In his role as a college professor of archaeology, Henry Jones Jr. is scholarly and learned in a tweed suit, lecturing on ancient civilizations. In Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, it is revealed that Jones is influenced by the Marxist Archaeologist, Vere Gordon Childe, whose qualified acceptance of cultural diffusionism theory he propounds. Ironically, though Childe loathes fieldwork, Indy goes on to say, "If you want to be a good archaeologist, you gotta get out of the library." This is in tongue-in-cheek contrast to the previous film'scomment, "Seventy percent of all archaeology is done in the library."

However, at the opportunity to recover important artifacts, Dr. Jones transforms into "Indiana," a "non-superhero superhero" image he has concocted for himself. Producer Frank Marshall said, "Indy [is] a fallible character. He makes mistakes and gets hurt. [...] That's the other thing people like: He's a real character, not a character with superpowers."Spielberg said there "was the willingness to allow our leading man to get hurt and to express his pain and to get his mad out and to take pratfalls and sometimes be the butt of his own jokes. I mean, Indiana Jones is not a perfect hero, and his imperfections, I think, make the audience feel that, with a little more exercise and a little more courage, they could be just like him." According to Spielberg biographer Douglas Brode, Indiana created his heroic figure so as to escape the dullness of teaching at a school. Both of Indiana's personas reject one another in philosophy, creating a duality. Harrison Ford said the fun of playing the character was because Indiana is both a romantic and a cynic, while scholars have analyzed Indiana as having traits of a lone wolf; a man on a quest; a noble treasure hunter; a hardboiled detective; a human superhero; and an American patriot.

Like many characters in his films, Jones has some autobiographical elements of Spielberg. Indiana lacks a proper father figure because of his strained relationship with his father, Henry Senior. His own contained anger is misdirected at the likes of Professor Abner Ravenwood, his mentor at the University of Chicago, leading to a strained relationship with Marion Ravenwood. The teenage Indiana bases his own look on a figure from the prologue of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, after being given his hat. Marcus Brody acts as Indiana's positive role model at the college. Indiana's own insecurities are made worse by the absence of his mother. In Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, the character becomes the father in a temporary family unit with Willie Scott and Short Round to survive. Indiana is rescued from the evil of Kali by Short Round's dedication. Indiana also saves many children from slavery.

Because of Indiana's strained relationship with his father, who was absent much of Indiana's youth searching for the Holy Grail, the character does not pursue the more spiritual aspects of the cultures he studies. Indiana uses his knowledge of Shiva to ultimately defeat Mola Ram. In Raiders, however, he is wise enough to close his eyes in the presence of God in theArk of the Covenant. By contrast, his rival Rene Belloq dies horribly for having the audacity to try to communicate directly with God.

In Crusade's prologue, Indiana's intentions are revealed as prosocial, as he believes artifacts "belong in a museum." In the film's climax, Indiana undergoes "literal" tests of faith to retrieve the Grail and save his father's life. He also remembers Jesus as a historical figure – a humble carpenter – rather than an exalted figure when he recognizes the simple nature and tarnished appearance of the real Grail amongst a large assortment of much more ornately decorated ones. Henry Senior rescues his son from falling to his death when reaching for the fallen Grail, telling him to "let it go," overcoming his mercenary nature. The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles explains how Indiana becomes solitary and less idealistic after fighting in World War I. In Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, Jones is older and wiser, whereas his sidekicks Mutt and Mac are youthfully arrogant and greedy, respectively.

#49 Ariel

(http://media.comicvine.com/uploads/0/2835/504432-ariel1_super.jpg)

(29 Points) 2 of 24 Lists - Highest Ranking - #5  George Harrison

Appeal:
Sweet-hearted, kind, occasionally has a nice voice, occasionally has legs and is endlessly naive.

Bio:
Ariel is the youngest daughter of King Triton and Queen Athena, rulers of Atlantica, and has six older sisters. She is often seen in the company of Flounder, her best friend, and Sebastian, her father's advisor who is often assigned to watch over her. In the television series and first film, Ariel has a fascination with the human world and often goes off to find human artifacts that she displays in a secret grotto. Ariel is often rebellious, wandering off on her own to explore her surroundings, and frequently disobeys the orders of her father or Sebastian, causing conflict between the characters. In The Little Mermaid she is depicted as being willing to do anything to be with Prince Eric, even giving up her voice to become human. Clements described her as a typical teenager, prone to errors of judgment. She also is incredibly curious, and her curiosity often leads her into dangerous situations.

#48 Hermione Granger

(http://hollywooddame.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/03/harry-potter-and-the-half-blood-prince-poster-hermione-granger-emma-watson.jpg)

(29 Points) 2 of 24 Lists - Highest Ranking - #4  Lassieface
   
Appeal:
Smart, charmingly (or perhaps annoyingly depending on who you ask) arrogant and, before you realize it, smoking hot.  Where early adopters of fandom pedophiles or simply head of the curve?

Bio:
In the books, Hermione is described as having bushy brown hair and brown eyes. Her front teeth, already very large, grow uncontrollably in Goblet of Fire after she is hit by a spell cast by Draco Malfoy. Madam Pomfrey attends to her in the hospital wing and, at her request, shrinks the teeth down to a normal size for her mouth.

Hermione's most prominent features include her prodigious intellect and cleverness. She is levelheaded, book-smart and is very good with logic. She is often bossy yet unfailingly dutiful and loyal to her friends—a person who can be counted on. Rowling stated that Hermione is a person that "never strays off the path; she always keeps her attention focused on the job that must be done." Despite Hermione's intelligence and bossy attitude, Rowling says that Hermione has "quite a lot of vulnerability in her personality," as well as a "sense of insecurity underneath," feels "utterly inadequate...and to compensate, she tries to be the best at everything at school, projecting a false confidence that can irritate people." During her Defence against the Dark Arts exam at the end of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Hermione reveals that her biggest fear is failure, after a Boggart takes the form of Professor McGonagall and tells her that she has failed all her exams. Her Patronus form is an otter
.
Hermione has an extremely compassionate side to her personality and is quick to help others, especially those who are defenseless, such as Neville Longbottom, first-years, House-Elves, fellow Muggle-borns, half-giants like Hagrid, and werewolves like Lupin. It was revealed by Rowling after the publication of the final book that Hermione's career in the Ministry was to fight for the rights of the oppressed (such as House-elves or Muggle-borns). Hermione is also very protective of her friends and values them so much that Rowling has suggested that, if Hermione had looked in the Mirror of Erised, she would have seen Harry, Ron, and herself "alive and unscathed, and Voldemort finished." Hermione has also learned to ignore what bullies such as Malfoy say to her, often preventing Harry and Ron from retaliating and thinking of some way to outsmart him. She accepts her status as a Muggle-born witch, and states in Deathly Hallows that she is "proud of it".

Hermione is portrayed during the whole series as an exceptionally talented young witch. Rowling has stated that Hermione is a "borderline genius." She received eleven O.W.L.s, ten Outstandings and one Exceeds Expectations, in Defence against the Dark Arts. She is the best student in Harry's year and is repeatedly the first student to master any spell or charm introduced in classes and even from more advanced years, as evidenced when she is able to conjure a Protean Charm on the D.A.'s fake Galleon coins, which is actually a N.E.W.T. level charm. She is also the first one to be able to cast non-verbal spells. Hermione is an exceptional duellist, capable of outmatching even Death Eaters, as shown in the battle at the Department of Mysteries, at the Lovegoods' house, and in the Battle of Hogwarts. However, Rowling has stated that while during the first three books Hermione would have beaten Harry in a magical duel, by the fourth book Harry is so good at Defence Against the Dark Arts that he would have defeated Hermione. Hermione did not tend to do as well in subjects that were not learned through books or formal training, as broom flying did not come as naturally to her in her first year as it did to Harry, and she showed no affinity for Divination, which she dropped from her third year studies. She was also not good at Wizard's Chess, as it was the only thing at which she ever lost.

Hermione's Patronus is an otter, Rowling's favourite animal. Her wand is made of vine wood and dragon heartstring core; vine is the wood ascribed to Hermione's fictional birth month (September) on the Celtic calendar.

#47 Emma Frost

(http://goodcomics.comicbookresources.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/emma-frost-frank-quitely-headshot.jpg)

(29 Points) 2 of 24 Lists - Highest Ranking - #2  Gunflyer
   
Appeal:
Cruel, icy, arrogant bitch.  And yes, that is the appeal.

Bio:
Emma Frost is what they had in mind when they came up with the phrase ‘cold hearted bitch.’ While that covers a lot of who Emma is, she does have a softer side to her and a strong sense of loyalty to a few select people. As a former member of the Hellfire Club, Emma may be constantly striving for redemption but that doesn’t stop her from not having too many morals qualms in relation to killing when the situation calls for it.

Emma Grace Frost was born in Boston, MA to Winston and Hazel Frost, a wealthy family where coldness was the norm. After her father declared her to be his heir and then committed her brother Christian to a mental institution, she rejected her family and left for New York to pursue her education. At the time, she also auditioned to be a dancer for the Hellfire Club. Eventually, she worked her way to the top, becoming Hellfire’s White Queen and also inheriting the entire Frost fortune upon her father’s death.

For several years, she and the rest of the Hellfire Club were a thorn in the X-men’s side. Emma not only founded her own Massachusetts Academy but created her own team in response to Xavier’s; the Hellions. When a Sentinel attack killed the Hellions and left Emma in a psychic coma, the X-men brought her in. When she woke up, she was completely disoriented and distraught by the death of her students. This sparked in her a chance for change. Xavier gave her a second chance and since then, she proved her loyalty to the X-men repeatedly. Sean Cassidy, also known as Banshee, even decided to help her with the school. She continued to run the Massachusetts Academy in her own unique way but never once crossed the line, devoting herself to her students’ well-being. In true Emma fashion, she found her favourites amongst the student body, most notably the Stepford Cuckoos and Julian Keller.

About a year ago, the Friends of Humanity launched an unprovoked and unexpected attack upon the Academy, catching everyone by surprise. There were over two dozen casualties and the school itself was left in ruins. Amongst the dead were two of the Cuckoos. Distraught by the event, Emma made the decision to take the X-men up on their offer and moved to New York to join them, subsequently bringing half of her remaining student body with them. The other half decided to return to their homes, too scared by the attack to continue attending a mutant school.

Since coming to Xavier's, Emma has become even more focused than ever on the safety of her students, even pushing them too hard at times. A repeat of Massachusetts is something unfathomable for her. She's unwilling to compromise when it comes to this. She and Wolverine have essentially taken over the Danger Room sessions and she teaches courses in both English and History. She also serves as a psychic therapist for some in the school, including the recently returned Scott Summers. And, of course, in addition to all this, she continues to run her company. Someone's got to help pay for all this after all.

(30 Points) 2 of 24 Lists - Highest Ranking - #6  Asbestos Bill
   
Appeal:
Selfless and eager to please.  A bit of a scatterbrain… but skilled with a whip.

Bio:
She is Phil's daughter. Upon meeting Harvey, she professes an immediate interest in his work, dressing up as "Birdgirl" and attempting to secure a position as his sidekick. When she is in costume, she is constantly hit on by Phil, who does not realize that they are related. She is prone to making monologues about her secret identity when she undergoes an internal crisis, often failing to realize that others are within earshot. The monologues, however, are never noticed. Near the end of the series, after Phil is seemingly killed by a bus, she takes control of the law firm.

If she is going to be on this list, I am glad to see her so low. She made it on my "Top characters that were supposed to be sexy but were just incredibly annoying" list. I've always hated her.

I didn't vote for her because of the age thing, but I'm glad a couple of the youngsters saw fit to give her props.


#47 Emma Frost

I only ever saw her in that most recent movie, and had never heard of her before.  She did not "wow" me there, however.  Possibly the growth on her lip and her rather undernourished frame did that.

January Jones is a terrible actress in my opinion. It works in Mad Men because she's essentially plays a flawed robot. She looks very attractive on the show, but her look in X-Men was totally different and didn't really work for me.

#45 Deanna Troi

(http://i56.photobucket.com/albums/g168/grahamofborg/Star%20Trek/deanna33.jpg)

(31 Points) 2 of 24 Lists - Highest Ranking - #10  Mr Basehart
   
Appeal:
Sensitive and caring.  She’s an empath, which is like a telepath, but less useful.  Tight clothes

Bio:
Deanna Troi was born on March 29, 2336, near Lake El-Nar, Betazed. Deanna's parents are Betazoid mother and Ambassador,Lwaxana Troi (portrayed by Majel Barrett), and a human father, deceased Starfleet officer Lt. Ian Andrew Troi (portrayed by Amick Byram). In the character background, an older sister, Kestra, drowned during Deanna's infancy (note: "Dark Page"). Although Deanna Troi has little exposure to planet Earth culture, she attended Starfleet Academy from 2355 to 2359, as well as the University on Betazed, and earned an advanced degree in psychology.

Deanna Troi serves as the ship's Freudian counselor aboard the Starfleet starship USS Enterprise (NCC-1701-D), and later in the films, on board the Enterprise-E under the command of Captain Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart). In Star Trek: Nemesis, Troi leaves the Enterprise with husband William Riker who has just been promoted to captain of the USS Titan.

In depicting a possible phenomenon of galactic travel, the series creates several alien races including the Betazoid race that has telepathic abilities. Due to a half-human heritage, Deanna Troi has partial telepathic abilities and is an extra-sensory empath with clairsentience. As viewed in Star Trek: Nemesis, Troi has the ability to connect to another psychic and follow that empathic bond to its source. In this instance, her ability enables Enterprise-E to target and hit the Reman vessel Scimitar, despite the fact that it was cloaked. She is telepathic with her mother and other telepathic Betazoids. There are several species who are resistant to the telepathy/empathy of Deanna and other Betazoids, such as the Ferengi, the Breen and the Ulians.

Early in the series, Troi finds herself working with a former lover, the newly assigned First Officer to USS Enterprise, Commander William Riker (portrayed by actor Jonathan Frakes). In later episodes, Troi has romantic involvements with several others, including a brief relationship with Klingon Starfleet officer Lieutenant Worf (portrayed by actor Michael Dorn).

She is called various names, usually depending upon the circumstances. Captain Picard calls her "Counselor", but when he is concerned about her, or in emergencies, he calls her Deanna. Riker addresses her as "Lieutenant" a single time in the pilot episode; her service rank is not referred to again for several seasons. Doctor Crusher (one of her most noted female friends) usually calls her "Troi". Data very rarely calls her by first name, usually calling her "Counselor Troi". Depending on the situation, Commander Riker will call her "Deanna" or the more personal "Imzadi" which means "beloved" in the Betazoid language.

On many episodes, Deanna Troi falls victim to aliens. She is usually targeted by aliens that can take control of her mind then talk through her body. In a key episode of Season 4, entitled "Clues", Enterprise’s crew lose a day's memory. As events unfold, Deanna is taken over by an entity in order to communicate with the crew. She temporarily gains "super-human" strength and effortlessly tosses Worf across the bridge breaking his wrist. In the season 5 episode "Violations", Enterprise encounters an alien species who are telepathic and specialize in being able to bring back lost memories. One of the aliens mentally assaults Deanna and also tries to physically assault her in her quarters. She is saved by Worf and one of his security teams. In the film Star Trek Nemesis, she is mentally violated by Shinzon's viceroy who is also telepathic. The first time is in her quarters with her new husband and long time friend Commander Riker and the second time is seen on Star Trek Nemesis bonus deleted scenes where she is mentally violated again in the turbolift.

Troi is also an avid connoisseur of chocolate, a fact that is significant in multiple episodes, including one in which she describes for another member of the crew how to properly enjoy eating it. In the episode in which Dr. Crusher is trapped in a warp bubble and is losing crew members ("Remember Me"), she briefly describes Troi to Captain Picard to jog his memory and mentions that she "loves chocolate". Troi's love of sweets was exceeded in an episode in which she was the host of a normally ascetic alien species who constantly indulged.

#44 Barbara Gordon

(http://i.telegraph.co.uk/multimedia/archive/01828/cat2_1828508i.jpg)

(31 Points) 3 of 24 Lists - Highest Ranking - #4 Jim Dalen
   
Appeal:
Tough and pouty.  And looks good in spandex.

Bio:
By day she is a librarian and at night she pursues her career in crime fighting. Eventually she begins dating many boys including private investigator Jason Bard. She would soon team-up with Superman, Supergirl and fight the likes of Mr. Mxyzptlk. She has also fought alongside the Justice League of America as well as having a team-up with Supergirl on her own. Later on, she begins to work with Batman's partner, Robin, on occasion as well as working with Jason Bard. Batgirl eventually reveals her secret identity to her adopted father, Police Commissioner Jim Gordon, who had already figured out who she was. He had, after all, known her all her life, going from her uncle to father. She is later elected to the U.S. House of Representative and as a result moves to D.C. with the hopes of giving up her career as Batgirl. However a year later she is set up on a blind date with Clark Kent and later fights alongside Superman. She would then team-up with both Superman and Supergirl again throughout the Silver Age.


The Modern Age saw Barbara Gordon as a slightly darker character. While recounting the series of events that lead her to become Batgirl, this is also significantly different that in the previous age's interpretations of her character. She encounters The Batman at a early age. As she grows up she excels in school, warranting her the honor of skipping grades throughout her academic career. She also pursues martial arts and striving to become a star athlete. She initially tries to pursue a career in criminal justice as opposed to her future vigilantism as Batgirl. Her father is no longer Jim Gordon, instead being the adoptive daughter of Gordon, also being her uncle, however there has been allegations that Jim is her biological father.

She would still be Batgirl for some time, however she started to feel inadequate in a world that had heroes like Superman, Captain Marvel, and Wonder Woman. She retired from her career as Batgirl, however that did not stop violence from entering her life. In an attempt to drive Jim Gordon insane, the Joker arrives at the Gordon's house and shoots Barbara Gordon through the spine. He then takes pictures of her in various states of undress and torture that he would show Gordon later in an attempt to drive him insane. The shots from the Joker's gun severed Barbara's spine leaving her in a wheelchair for the rest of her life. Upon hearing this both Barbara and Nightwing, the former Robin Dick Grayson are devastated. This would lead to an obsessive disorder regarding the Joker, tapping into video of him, as well as telling Nightwing that they should make an exception to their one rule and kill the Clown Prince of Crime. She would later ask Batman for the camera that was used to shoot the pictures of her. She has it in a secret building, along with her original Batgirl suit.

Initially Barbara falls into a bout of depression, but soon uses her knowledge of computers in the ever growing modern era and use it to fight crime the best way she can. Using her incredible smarts and photographic memory along with her ability to use computers in a way that most of the DCU are unable to, she creates a new persona. She now goes by the codename Oracle and she serves as an information broker, first to the Suicide Squad, then to heroes throughout her world. She also trains to become a fighting threat from the world famous Richard Dragon, although she is still in a wheelchair.

Upon her complete transformation into the Oracle, she founds the Birds of Prey, a team of female heroes whom she employs and sends out as agents in her fight on crime as well as considering them extended members of the Batman Family. She partnered with Power Girl, however their partnership did not work very well. Black Canary, Dinah Lance, becomes the main operative in her unit, as the two have formed an incredibly strong friendship once they finally meet in person.

During War Games, Oracle's computer systems are compromised by the Black Mask as he confronts the Batman. Batman was going to kill the Black Mask, however due to Oracle setting her self defense mechanism in her Clock Tower forcing the Batman to rescue her. Because of this destruction, Barbara decides to cut her ties with the Batman and moves her operation to Metropolis.

Barbara is later possessed by Brainiac, who attempts to have a biological body. Barbara was able to overcome his advances and remove him from her body, however in the aftermath a virus remains in her system. Because of this virus she is able to communicate cyberpathically with computer systems. Later, Dr. Mid-Nite is able to make the virus dormant, however after this she is soon able to move her toes, however that does not last very long.
Barbara Gordon's return to the role of Batgirl, involving her regaining mobility to her legs, after being paralyzed in "The Killing Joke". She has just recently regained the use of her legs. Her new found mobility may springboard her back into action, but the effects of the Joker's terrible act may be mentally more difficult to get over than she ever imagined. While Babs is able to walk again this could be temporarily meaning she has to be careful.

#43 Fox Mulder

(32 Points) 2 of 24 Lists - Highest Ranking - #10 Tyrant
   
Appeal:
Determined and honest, even in the face of overwhelming odds/convolution.

Bio:
Despite his aloofness and cynical sense of humor, Mulder displays unbridled enthusiasm and interest when it comes to the paranormal, especially because of his personal involvement after his sister's abduction. Walter Skinner and other FBI officials have become concerned by his unprofessional behavior. This only proves true as Mulder makes a habit of letting his personal feelings cloud his judgment; his emotional attachment to UFO cases becomes more severe throughout the series, because of Dana Scully's eventual abduction and resultant cancer as well as his sister's abduction. Mulder can lose his temper when Scully is involved; on multiple occasions, he has become violent in his grief and unreserved in threatening physical force. Mulder's overprotectiveness of Scully stems not only from his obvious devotion and love for her, but also a long-harbored guilt; Mulder has admitted feeling indirectly responsible for the ordeals and tragedies Scully had gone through because of their investigations.

In the episode "Drive", Mulder facetiously apologizes on behalf of the "international Jewish conspiracy" in response to the abusive and anti-Semitic tirades of a suspect, to which Mulder appears to take offence; the suspect also guesses Mulder's ethnicity is Jewish based on his surname. Despite this, in the episode "Kaddish", Mulder is unable to identify a Talmudic book, states that he does not know Hebrew, and quips that Jesus returned from the dead. Also, Mulder, as his father before him, had a Christian burial presided over by a Protestant minister following his apparent "death" in the episode "Deadalive". This suggests he hails from a Protestant background, as Scully hails from a Catholic background. Mulder also seeks comfort in a Christian church following the events of the episode "Conduit". Of course Mulder could conceivably be of a Jewish ethnic descent but a Christian background, perhaps through ancestral marriage or conversion. David Duchovny suggested Mulder is Jewish when interviewed during production of the second season. In the episode "The Field Where I Died", Mulder went into a hypnotic trance and recalls a past life, where he is in a concentration camp during the Holocaust.

Mulder is almost never seen sleeping in a bed. The bedroom in his apartment (which appeared as late as the sixth season of the show's run) is apparently used for storage and is filled floor to ceiling with junk, including a couple of boxes of pornographic magazines. Instead, Mulder sleeps on his couch, often falling asleep to a blaring television. Mulder can seem to go through manic periods when worried or working on a case, contributing to or exacerbating his insomniac tendencies. Since "Dreamland II" where a 'man In Black' body-swaps with Mulder and takes over his life, Mulder gets his bedroom renovated and equipped with a waterbed. In "Monday" he finds himself soaked through when his waterbed (which he can't remember getting, it is implied he thinks it was a present from Scully) is leaking.

#42 Captain Malcolm Reynolds

(http://images.fanpop.com/images/image_uploads/Naked-Mal-nathan-fillion-260851_500_281.jpg)

(32 Points) 2 of 24 Lists - Highest Ranking - #5 Tyrant
   
Appeal:
Rugged, cocky, smart and never says die.  Plus he’s pretty confident, even nude.

Bio:
Malcolm's main mission is to keep his crew alive and to keep his ship flying. As Firefly writer Tim Minear stated in an interview: "It's just about getting by. That's always been the mission statement of what the show is — getting by." In Serenity, Mal says of himself: "[If the] Wind blows Northerly, I go North."

Screens from Serenity suggest that Mal was born on September 20, 2468–which would make him 49 at the time of the series Firefly–though this may be a transposition of 2486 (making him 31, an age more consistent with his appearance), since the information screen also misspells his name as "Malcom". Mal was raised by his mother and "about 40 hands" on a ranch on the planet Shadow. Though Mal usually seems more practical than intellectual, he occasionally surprises his friends by displaying familiarity with disparate literature varying from the works of Xiang Yu  (a fictional psychotic dictator) to poems by Samuel Taylor Coleridge, though he has no idea "who" Mona Lisa is.

Mal volunteered for the Independents army during the Unification War against the Alliance, gaining the rank of sergeant during that time. His loyal second-in-command Zoe was by his side for most of the war, surviving many dangerous conflicts with him. The show mentions three such battles, including the Battle of Du-Khang in 2510 (featured in "The Message") and a long winter campaign in New Kashmir (as told by Zoe in "War Stories") where he commanded a platoon. Mal was also involved in the ground campaign during the Battle of Sturges (as seen in the comic book Serenity: Those Left Behind), which according to Badger was the "bloodiest and shortest battle in all the war", although Mal considers it a distant second. Mal fought in many more battles, but the turning point for him and the Independents came with their physical and emotional defeat at the Battle of Serenity Valley on the planet Hera. On-screen information from the film Serenity suggests that Mal was given a brevet promotion to Captain during the Battle of Serenity Valley to take command of the ever-increasing number of Independent troops who were losing their officers at the hands of the Alliance. This might explain why, in one of the deleted scenes from the Firefly pilot, Mal is described as having commanded at least 2000 men. On-screen information in Serenity shows him to have been attached to the 57th Overlanders Brigade; in the series pilot, Badger calls it the "Balls and Bayonets Brigade", though it is unclear whether that was a disparaging nickname coined by Badger himself or the actual unit sobriquet, a deleted scene in Serenity marks it as the actual unit sobriquet. It is unknown if the deleted scene can be considered canon or not.

After the war, Mal acquired his own ship, a derelict 03-K64 Firefly-class transport. Mal named the ship Serenity after the Battle of Serenity Valley, the decisive battle of the Unification War.

Though Mal loses faith in God and religion following the Battle of Serenity Valley, he retains a strong faith in humanity. Though wary in his personal dealings, he puts great stock in the fundamental goodness of people in general. This faith in an individual's abilities to do the right thing manifests strongly in his very negative view of governmental institutions. "Governments," he says in the pilot, are for "getting in a man's way." The Alliance, whose government seems particularly fond of interference and regulation, is thus his logical nemesis. His contempt for the Alliance never completely disappears (although he once said that he "wouldn't mind makin' a buck off 'em", implying that if the Alliance wanted to hire him for a job, he might consider it), and, although he was on the losing side of the Unification War, years later he tells an Alliance officer that he's "still not convinced it was the wrong one". Though he loathes the Alliance, he acknowledges he lost the fight against them and is now looking purely to keep out of their reach; this is best summed in his comment in Serenity, "I just wanna go my way." However, throughout the course of the film Serenity, Mal comes to learn more of the Alliance's dark secrets, which rekindles his fighting spirit and causes him to once again take up the fight against the oppressive regime. Mal expresses his newfound resolve during his speech near the final act of the film Serenity: "They [the Alliance] will swing back to the belief that they can make people... better. And I do not hold to that. So no more runnin'. I aim to misbehave." His anti-government attitude is reflected in his choice to live on a spaceship, drifting from world to world, as far away from Alliance interference as possible.

Fillion shares his view on the motivations of the character he portrayed. Mal has lost so much that each character in the crew he has gathered on Serenity represents an aspect of himself he no longer has. "In Wash, he has a lust for life and a sense of humor he's lost. In Jayne, he has selfishness. In Book, he has spirituality. In Kaylee, he has innocence. Everybody represents a facet of himself that he has lost and that's why he keeps them close and safe, and yet at arm's length.”

In the DVD commentary, Fillion reveals that Reynolds' ultimate motivation is simply to 'Continue. That's all, just...continue'.

Appeal:
Bubbly, enthusiastic and cute.  You’ll see this a lot.

Bio:
Daisy is an aspiring writer, although she tends to spend most of her time actively avoiding doing any writing - or any other actual work for that matter. Whereas Tim is often grouchy and sour, Daisy is sunny, enthusiastic and cheerful, and at times overwhelmingly so. She can also be aggressive and confrontational at times, as demonstrated when she joined an employment agency only to lose most of the jobs she was assigned through her negative attitudes. She considers herself to be quite intellectual, even though she only graduated from Kingston University with a third class degree. She has a tendency to babble in conversation, making social interactions rather more difficult to navigate than they necessarily have to be. She also has a tendency to interfere in other people's problems or lives as a way of avoiding focusing on her work or her own problems. Daisy bestows most of her love in a shockingly high pitch upon her dog Colin, a Miniature Schnauzer, whom she rescues from being put down. Daisy also possesses an innate knack for martial arts, although this is seldom called into use. Her greatest desire was to go to India and see the Taj Mahal, a goal which she accomplished between series one and two after having actually published some articles for a change (her trip was also aided by inheritance money from her deceased aunt).

I wish I had thought of Malcolm Reynolds. I have that entire series on DVD (all one half season of it). And the movie.

Also, who the heck is Daisy Steiner? I've never heard of her at all.

EDIT: Just looked it up on Wikipedia. There's a TV show starring Simon Pegg and directed by Edgar Wright that I've never heard of!? I'll have to look into that.

Yes, do that! SPACED is awesome! I am surprised Quirk of all people couldn't get into it.


As for Deanna Troi, even as a young teenager I knew the difference between a "crush" and just some hot chick with a great rack I wanted to do dirty dirty things with.
She only really annoyed me in how she was front and center ALL THE TIME. Why is she a fucking bridge officer?! Had she just been a background character, her uselessness wouldn't have been so blatantly apparent.

#40 Sarah Walker

(33 Points) 2 of 24 Lists - Highest Ranking - #6 Mr Basehart
   
Appeal:
Tough, smart and skilled in the deadly arts.

Bio:
At the beginning of Chuck, Sarah's complicated upbringing and government training have made her deadly, determined and guarded.

   Her childhood experience in conning and concealing secrets has been sharpened by spy training; she is highly capable at combat, especially with throwing knives (she typically wears several in a sheath strapped to her leg when her wardrobe allows) and to a lesser extent her favored side arm throughout the series, the Smith & Wesson Model 5906; she is able to speak in several foreign languages (Polish, Russian, Spanish and German, and can understand at least some Swedish) and accents.

   Before she meets Chuck she is apparently, in Casey's words, "Langston Graham's wild-card enforcer," and in her own words in "Chuck Versus the Tooth", does not envision a future for herself beyond her next mission. She is determined to personally resolve Bryce's perceived personal and professional betrayal.

   And finally, her professional need to keep her past and emotions a closely guarded secret also suits her temperamentally. She does not readily discuss her personal history or reveal her real name, and repeatedly states the conventional wisdom of the spy community that emotion and love create vulnerabilities. It is later revealed that a key event in her becoming cold and distant was the day of her "red test," or first kill, which she considers to be the worst day of her life and the details of which she never forgot; and one of her greatest stated fears is Chuck becoming like her when he is ordered to undergo his own red test.

Still, she is immediately receptive to Chuck's good nature and humor, and she much later admits to Chuck that she fell for him during the first episode "after you fixed my phone and before you started defusing bombs with computer viruses." While Sarah lacks Chuck's openly trusting nature, she quickly recognizes that Chuck is just a regular guy and not a threat, and chooses to protect him from the NSA team led by John Casey. A series-long character arc involves her gradually overcoming both professional barriers and deep-rooted relationship baggage from her past to let her guard down and develop a relationship with Chuck.

The first two seasons show her to be much more empathetic and sympathetic to Chuck's plight than Casey, and is highly protective of Chuck, to an extent beyond the requirements of her mission to safeguard the Intersect. Where Casey for a long time only seems concerned with physical threats to Chuck's safety (things that might cost the government the use of the Intersect information in Chuck's head), Sarah is more concerned for him as an individual:

   Sarah is quick to reassure Chuck of his own abilities beyond the Intersect, and tells him on several occasions that he has made an excellent spy.

   Sarah openly warned both Lou and Jill—with whom Chuck carried on brief relationships—not to hurt him.

   By the end of the first season, she is prepared to pull a gun on a fellow CIA agent rather than allow Chuck to be detained for the rest of his life. Later, in "Chuck Versus Santa Claus", she executes an unarmed Fulcrum agent, since his special status makes him confident that Fulcrum will find him and that he would then reveal to them that Chuck is the Intersect, and thereafter Chuck's life would be over.

   Early on, she objects to orders that put Chuck and those close to him in danger; she also increasingly objects to lying or concealing information from Chuck and using him without his knowledge. Chuck and Sarah have always had a saying 'Don't freak out'.

Though she kisses Chuck when they think they're about to die, and they go on a real date when they think Chuck is about to regain his freedom, Sarah keeps Chuck uncertain about her feelings for him with mixed messages: obvious concern for Chuck, the ambiguous nature of their "cover relationship," noting professional barriers to any real relationship but also occasionally holding out the possibility of eventually having a normal life with her, and her aptitude for taking on different roles/covers and using her appearance on missions, at times flirting with the team's targets when needed. Further complicating things on both sides are the occasional love triangles.

Despite her attempts to mask her feelings, many characters in the first two seasons, including Chuck's sister Ellie, Bryce Larkin, Casey, Carina, Roan Montgomery, and her father,[8] all detect that she is romantically interested in or in love with Chuck. Though she denies any such interest, she openly acknowledges a desire to remain friendly with Chuck on a personal level, until the end of the second season, when she and Chuck share several intimate moments.

At this time, as Chuck becomes more capable in combat and embraces becoming a spy, she becomes more concerned about how this will change his character, and that if he has to kill he will lose the trusting and good nature she originally came to love about him, just as she thinks her own "red test" changed her.

In "Chuck Versus the Ring: Part II", Shaw remarks on how Sarah's personality has transformed from a person who masked her emotions to being just as open, caring and loving as Chuck. She does express relief when Chuck does not kill Shaw after defeating him and shows mercy. While Shaw said that it made him weak, Sarah tells Chuck, "No, that is what makes you great!"

Several episodes imply that Sarah misses or envies the "normal" life Chuck desires to return to. Sarah herself expressed a desire to have a normal life with Chuck in "Chuck Versus the Pink Slip," and has asked Carina and Casey if they ever wondered what a normal, real life would be like. In "Chuck Versus the Role Models", Sarah moved in with Chuck and expressed that she looked forward to living a "normal life" with him after their spy lives are over.

But in keeping with her temperament, Sarah is often unnerved in situations of a more domestic nature. She is visibly flustered as Ellie's maid of honor, and in a deleted scene from "Chuck Versus the Ring," is panicking, stating that she handled covert operations and none of it was as terrifying as Ellie on her wedding day. When Devon suggests that Chuck and Sarah would be next in line for the family life, Sarah becomes scared; she, later, channels her frustration and fear by pummelling Casey in a sparring match, and becomes instantly relieved when a romantic mission is cancelled. After Clara's birth and Chuck's proposal when Chuck's family begin to plan Chuck and Sarah's wedding, Chuck, Casey and Sarah become visibly scared at the family's intensity; Sarah remarks that she's "sweating. The last time [she] sweat, gunfire was involved."

#39 Brock Samson

(34 Points) 2 of 24 Lists - Highest Ranking - #7 Anais.Whatever
   
Appeal:
Tough, smart and skilled in the deadly arts.  Also, has parenting skills.

Bio:
Brock Samson is the one-half Swedish, one-quarter Polish, one-quarter Winnebago murder machine who recently acted as bodyguard to the Venture Family. He now works for the organization S.P.H.I.N.X after quitting the O.S.I., but still cares for the Venture family. He was born in Omaha, Nebraska to a single mother. After being kicked out of college he became an Army ranger before joining the Office of Secret Intelligence, presumably a covert branch of the United States Government. There he acquired secret agent skills and a License to Kill. Even though Brock possesses a license to kill, he refuses to use a gun and instead wields a bowie knife as his signature weapon. He relies on brute strength, endurance, and skill with a knife that borders on the supernatural. He is also able to tell whenever someone is in his car, apparently from an entirely separate continent, which Shoreleave believes is "a legitimate super-power". Brock also has subtly shown signs of being somewhat conflicted with his place in the world and unsure about his purpose as killing machine, such as when he confessed remorse for his murder of one Monarch henchman who later was revived by Dr. Venture into "Venturestein". Samson also has a personal code or ethics regarding innocents and who he will kill if they are threat to him and or the Ventures.

#39 Power Girl

(34 Points) 2 of 24 Lists - Highest Ranking - #7 Jim Dalen
   
Appeal:
Super-strong, super-tough, super-capable and mammary glands.

Bio:
Power Girl is the Earth-Two counterpart of Supergirl and the first cousin of Kal-L, Superman of the pre-Crisis Earth-Two. The infant Power Girl's parents enabled her to escape the destruction of Krypton. Although she left the planet at the same time that Superman did, her ship took much longer to reach Earth-Two.

Possessing superhuman strength and the ability to fly, she is a member of the Justice Society of America and the team's first chairwoman. Power Girl sports a bob of blond hair; wears a distinctive white, red, and blue costume; and has an aggressive fighting style. Throughout her early appearances in All Star Comics, Power Girl was frequently at odds with Wildcat, who had a penchant for talking to her as if she were an ordinary human female rather than a superpowered Kryptonian, which she found annoying.

The 1985 limited series Crisis on Infinite Earths eliminated Earth-Two, causing her origin to change; she became the granddaughter of the Atlantean sorcerer Arion. However, story events culminating in the 2005-2006 Infinite Crisis limited series restored her status as a refugee from the Krypton of the destroyed pre-Crisis Earth-Two universe. She was ranked ninth in Comics Buyer's Guide's "100 Sexiest Women in Comics" list.

Bio:
Barbarella is a young woman who travels from planet to planet and has numerous adventures, often involving sex (the aliens she meets often seduce her, and she also experiments with a "machine excessive" or "orgasmotron"). The original comic book version of Barbarella was probably modeled on Brigitte Bardot, who was once married to the director of the 1968 film, Roger Vadim. Vadim's third wife, Jane Fonda, starred as Barbarella in the 1968 movie based on the character.  And lets face it, it’s that version you’re probably thinking of, though I do want to read those comics.

(36 Points) 2 of 24 Lists - Highest Ranking - #1 Tripe Hound Redux
   
Appeal:

Shy, sweet and kind and all kinds of fun… once she gets out of her room.

Bio:
Fred was born in San Antonio, Texas to Roger and Patricia "Trish" Burkle. When she finished college, she moved to Los Angeles for graduate school at UCLA. Originally majoring in history, Fred took a physics class with Professor Seidel, which inspired her to take another path. Around this time, she began working at Stewart Brunell Public Library. In 1996, while shelving a demon language book, a curious Fred recited the cryptic text out loud and was accidentally sucked into a dimensional portal to Pylea (her future friend Lorne was sucked into the same portal on his side and ended up in Los Angeles). It was later discovered that the portal was actually opened by Fred's jealous college professor, Professor Seidel, who had sent every promising student to it, essentially sending them to their death. Fred was the only one of at least six to return (cf. "Supersymmetry"). In high school or college, Fred was amarijuana user as shown in the episode "Spin The Bottle." In that episode, she asks Wesley and "Liam" for weed and was also revealed to have had to take a personality disorder test and to be something of a conspiracy theorist.

For five years, Fred spent an arduous life as a "cow," the Pylean word for humans who are kept as slaves. The harsh life of solitude and serfdom took a serious toll on her social skills, as well as her mental health; when Angel meets Fred she is curled up in a cave, scribbling on the already-covered walls, having seemingly convinced herself that her previous life in L.A. had not been real.

It was revealed that Fred had once been forced to wear an explosive shock collar. However, Fred's salvation comes when Angel and his crew arrive in Pylea to find Cordelia Chase, who had become trapped there. It is notable that when Angel's demon came fully to the fore, it attacked just about everyone but Fred – including Gunn and Wesley. Despite this shocking display of violence, Angel never seemed to scare Fred, and even at his most demonic, he never attacked her. In fact, her presence seemed to have a calming effect on him.

When Pylea is liberated, Fred accompanies Angel and the rest of the gang back to Los Angeles and stays in the Hyperion Hotel to re-adjust to life on Earth and regain her mental stability. Despite several traumatic instances, such as being held hostage by Gunn's old vampire-hunting crew, she adjusts quite well to "normal" life.

Her knowledge of physics and mathematics make her an excellent asset when researching and developing strategies. Fred quickly develops a romantic relationship with Gunn, which lasts roughly one year. She is also the object of affection of Wesley Wyndam-Pryce, who attempts to step aside after Gunn and Fred started dating, but is still drawn to her. Near the end of her relationship with Gunn, Fred and Wesley share a kiss, but after discovering that Wesley had been in a relationship – albeit a rather complex one – with Lilah Morgan, her feelings for Wesley cool considerably.

Eventually, Fred discovers that it was actually her former professor's fault that she had been trapped in Pylea, and indeed, Professor Seidel had attempted to trap her in another world yet again. Furious, she plots to kill him with Wesley's help. Gunn, however, feels that such a brutal act, even against Seidel, will ultimately destroy her. As a result, in a battle where she is trying to trap him in a hell dimension, Gunn snaps Seidel's neck himself and drops the body into the portal. Unfortunately, this causes a rift between Fred and Gunn, and ultimately ends their relationship.

I didn't put Power Girl on my list, but bravo to those who did. I loved the series drawn by Amanda Conner (who illustrated Trace's comic BTW). She does great sexy cheesecake and has a lot of fun with it (ala the snow globes scene from that series. Very funny). That series was a kick, made me laugh, which was something refreshing in this age of dark and serious comics. I l liked her character and the friendship with naive Terra.

I did have Barbarella on my list. As a kid  remember that as the forbidden, naughty movie we hoped to be able to see (sneak into) somehow. This was the days before VHS and it wasn't until HBO (or someone) showed it that I finally got to see the legend (apart from the pictures in film mags). Ahh sweet youthful memories. She still sets my heart a flutter - cool, camp and sexy. (and oh yeah, those creepy dolls with the gnashing teeth!)

And I do have one anime character on my list (at #2)....

She's a character from 20th Century Boys, a manga from Naoki Urasawa, who created Monster.  The premise is that a guy discovers that some games that he and a friend made and wrote about in "the Book of Prophecy" (which details how they would become super-heroes and save the world from a giant robot on the eve of the year 2000) has been turned into an insane cult by the charismatic and enigmatic figure known only as friend.  Without giving too much away, 17/18 year old Endo Kanna takes over as main character (though it really is an ensemble for the most part) for the second arc on her mission to stop Friend.  I highly recommend 20th Century Boys and all of Naoki Urasawa's work, as they are mature, exciting thrillers with a strong emphasis on characters.  His current series, Billy  Bat, which is about a cartoon bat who has existed throughout humanities history, is also recommended.

Bio:
Gwen first appears in The Amazing Spider-Man #31 (December 1965). Peter Parker meets Gwen while both study as undergraduates at Empire State University. Initially, with Aunt May in the hospital, Peter feels troubled and ignores her advances, and in return, she feels insulted by his aloofness. She dates both Flash Thompson and Harry Osborn while pining for Peter. Gradually, however, a romance develops; Gwen, a science major, seems to appreciate Peter's intellectual personality, different from that of jocks like Flash Thompson andpreppies like Harry Osborn. In the comic books, she is Peter Parker's first love — their relationship begins almost immediately after a relationship between Peter and Betty Brant ends.

Their relationship almost ends as it begins. A mind-controlled Police Captain George Stacy (Gwen's father) gets into a fight with Peter, which Gwen observes. Thinking Peter attacked her father, she halts the relationship. Gwen eventually learns the truth and she and Peter reconciled. Peter would frequently feel insecure whenever he saw Flash Thompson with Gwen, and many misunderstandings ensued.

Their romance becomes more complicated when Gwen's father gets killed by falling debris from a battle which involved Spider-Man and Doctor Octopus (The Amazing Spider-Man #90). Gwen blames Spider-Man for that event, an assumption that was not actually that inaccurate as the debris was knocked over when Doctor Octopus lost control of his tentacles due to a new type of webbing developed by Spider-Man, which sets back their relationship for a while. Gwen leaves for Europe to "deal with" her loss. She tries to get Peter to propose to her and convince her to stay, but his guilt stops him from doing so. By the time he changes his mind, she is already gone.

Peter goes to London to see Gwen, but has to go into action there as Spider-Man. Realizing she will put two and two together if she sees Peter and Spider-Man in London, Peter leaves without seeing Gwen. Gwen eventually realizes her error in trying to pressure Peter into marriage, so she returns to New York and they get back together and begin to plan their future.

#35 Fluttershy

(http://fc05.deviantart.net/fs71/i/2011/129/1/7/fluttershy_at_the_gala_by_shelltoontv-d3fzoui.png)

(37 Points) 2 of 24 Lists - Highest Ranking - #3 Relaxing Dragon
   
Appeal:

Shy.  Also fluttery.

Bio:
When Fluttershy is first introduced in the My Little Pony – Friendship is Magic, she barely manages to tell Twilight Sparkle her name out of shyness, going so far as to be reduced to whimpering in fear. However, she becomes very conversational when she notices Spike the baby dragon, implores him to tell her "everything" (which he does), and follows him and Twilight all the way to Twilight's residence. Her shyness occasionally locks horns with Rainbow Dash's brashness, most notably in Dragonshy.

She is terrified of fully grown dragons and repeatedly freezes in place when she and her friends go on an expedition to confront a dragon in Dragonshy. Twilight Sparkle encourages her and tells her that her understanding of animals will come in handy in the expedition, and Applejack pushes her forward through some of the journey, also literally pulling her up the mountain, and defends her from disparaging remarks. Pinkie is able to help Fluttershy gain enough confidence to attempt to jump across a chasm in Dragonshy, and inFeeling Pinkie Keen, Fluttershy repeats the jumping line Pinkie Pie taught her. Near the end of the episode, when Fluttershy sees her friends being harmed by the dragon, she is able to overcome her fear and cause the dragon to back down by scolding him. In Stare Master, she is able to drive away a wild cockatrice in a similar manner.
Fluttershy practices cheering with Rainbow Dash in Sonic Rainboom, but her loudest cheer is frustratingly quiet for Dash. When Rainbow Dash successfully performs her sonic rainboom, Fluttershy cheers extremely loudly, and hops up and down in excitement, while the others only stand with mouths agape, shocked at the event. In Stare Master, she is forced to raise her voice twice to gain the Cutie Mark Crusaders' attention.

She is reduced to tears by Gilda in Griffon the Brush Off when the griffon shouts at her for bumping into her. Afterwards, when Pinkie Pie tells her "[not to worry about] mean old Gilda, your auntie Pinkie Pie has it all taken care of." Fluttershy gets slightly annoyed at the patronizing comment and replies that she is "a year older" than Pinkie. Pinkie Pie exempts Fluttershy from her pranks for fear of hurting her feelings, and she's outraged when she sees Gilda yelling at Fluttershy.

In Luna Eclipsed, Fluttershy sequesters herself at home in her cottage, and refuses to answer the door until she learns that it is Twilight Sparkle who is calling.

Haven't had much time to do more than peek in, so a little catch up time.

#45 Deanna Troi

She was on my list, mainly out of nostalgia.  Can't say she's a big crush for me now, but as a pre-teen/teenager she was a great part of Trek watching for me.  Guess that's kind of a theme with her on this list.

#44 Barbara Gordon

On my list too.  Mostly I crushed on the animated series version of her.  The 60s TV version did look good in the costume, and if I read more of the comics I get the feeling I'd of liked her there just as much, as it is most of the comics I've read that included her, were after she hung up the costume.

(http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20100804221102/batman/images/thumb/9/93/BTASBatgirl.jpg/250px-BTASBatgirl.jpg)
I made sure I listed her as "Barbara Gordon" and not "Batgirl" for two reasons.  1, to exclude the "Barbara Pennyworth" version they gave us with Batman and Robin, and 2, because she's still awesome as Oracle.

#38 Mrs Brisby/Frisby

Not on my list, and a bit of a surprise to see her listed.  Love the character, but never thought of her as a crushworthy character.  Gotta say, if I WAS going to include a cartoon mouse on my list, it probably would have promoted Gadget to the main countdown. 

#39 Brock Samson

This one reminded me of a Venture Bros character I didn't include, and I'm seriously kicking myself for it, especially since I did list ANOTHER Venture Bros character already.

Appeal:

Bitter smart-ass.  Only smiles at the misfortune of others.

Bio:
Kimberly "Kim" Pine is Scott's ex-girlfriend and the drummer of Sex Bob-omb, Scott's band. During gigs (or even just when practicing at home) Kim counts in the band, usually by screaming some variation of: "We are Sex Bob-omb!!" She is 23 years old and was Scott's first girlfriend, whom he "saved" from Simon Lee back in high school. The two broke up when Scott's family moved away to Toronto, and when Kim moved to Toronto herself, they formed Sex Bob-Omb with Scott's former bandmate Stephen Stills. She has a sarcastic personality and is known to be amisanthrope. You might say that she has somewhat of an inferiority complex, as she looks down at her knees, sullen, and laments Envy's beauty. Kim is employed at No-Account Video throughout the series.

#33 Alyx Vance

(http://media.giantbomb.com/uploads/0/8194/696204-index_alyx_super.jpg)

(38 Points) 2 of 24 Lists - Highest Ranking - #2 Asbestos Bill
   
Appeal:

Likes to joke in the face of apocalypse.

Bio:
Alyx is a generally friendly person, usually making optimistic remarks in dire situations. Rarely does she become hostile towards others, with the exception of Judith Mossman who betrayed the Resistance. She also has a caring side, asking Gordon to be careful when he goes into dangerous areas and feeling sorry for a traincar filled with sleeping Stalkers. At times, Alyx shows a very fragile, scared side that she usually bottles up in order to maintain the situation.

Alyx is also very educated, forming opinions on the Combine and the Resistance independently. She has also proven to be very calm yet stern during combat, helping out in any way she can. Alyx has proven to be skilled in shooting, climbing, hacking, and repairing machines and vehicles.

She also has a sense of humor, as evidenced by the jokes she makes about the Combine or Gordon's silence. An example of this can be seen in the Lowlife chapter of Episode One, when she begins to make noises like a zombie to scare the player. Upon being found out, she says "Ha ha, gotcha." In the same chapter, when Gordon and Alyx come across a zombie created from a normal headcrab and a Civil Protection officer. Alyx calls the "new breed" a Zombine, saying, "Zombine, get it? Hahaha...", then stopping when Gordon apparently doesn't get the joke. "...O------kay."

(39 Points) 4 of 24 Lists - Highest Ranking - #6 Imrahil
   
Appeal:

She’s a powerful woman.  Plus, crazy space hair sometimes.

Bio:

In Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, Leia is introduced as the Princess of Alderaan and a member of the Imperial Senate. Darth Vader captures her onboard the ship Tantive IV, where she is acting as a spy for the Rebel Alliance. He accuses her of being a traitor and demands to know the location of the secret technical plans of the Death Star, the Galactic Empire's newest and most powerful weapon. Unknown to Vader, the young senator has hidden the plans inside the Astromech droid R2-D2 and has sent it to find Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi on the nearby planet of Tatooine. Later, Vader has her tortured, but she resists telling him anything. Still believing she could be useful, the Death Star's commander, Grand Moff Tarkin, threatens to destroy Alderaan with the super weapon unless she reveals the location of the hidden Rebel base. She lies to them, and Tarkin orders Alderaan to be destroyed anyway. She is finally rescued by Luke Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Han Solo, the Wookiee Chewbacca, and the two droids, R2-D2 and C-3PO. When they finally escape, at the expense of Obi-Wan's life (sacrificed in a duel with Vader), they take part in the Battle of Yavin, in which Luke destroys the Death Star in his X-wing fighter. In the Massassi Temple at the hidden Rebel base on Yavin 4, the radiant Princess Leia Organa presents the Alderaanian Medal of Freedom to her rescuers and the heroes of the battle.

In Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back -set three years later- Leia is at the Rebel base on Hoth. She later helps with the evacuation of Hoth during an Imperial attack, remaining at her station until Han forces her to leave with him. She flees with C-3PO, Han, and Chewbacca on Han's ship, the Millennium Falcon. Although they are pursued by Imperial TIE fighters, they dodge their fire by flying into an asteroid field when the Falcon's hyperdrive breaks down. Romance blossoms between Leia and Han during their flight from the Empire; while hiding in the stomach of a space slug, she finally shares a kiss with the Corellian smuggler. Later, when they stop at Bespin for repairs, Han's friend Lando Calrissian turns them over to Vader, who uses them as bait for Luke. Han is also used as a test subject for the carbon freezing chamber meant for Luke, and it is there that Leia finally confesses her love for Han. Vader then gives the frozen Han to bounty hunter Boba Fett to give to Jabba the Hutt, to whom Han owes a very large debt. Later, Lando helps Leia, Chewbacca, and the two droids escape. While escaping, she senses that Luke is in trouble and makes them go back for him. They save Luke, who is badly hurt after a near-fatal duel against Vader.

In Return of the Jedi, set a year later, Leia, Chewbacca, Lando, Luke (now nearly a Jedi Knight), and the droids go to Tatooine to try to rescue Han Solo from Jabba the Hutt. Leia's part of the plan consists of posing as the Ubese bounty hunter Boushh, who will turn Chewbacca over to Jabba. Her ruthless bargaining, negotiating the price for Chewbacca while holding an armed thermal detonator, impresses Jabba enough to allow her quarters in the palace for the night. The Huttese gangster eventually discovers her real identity, captures her, makes her his new slave girl, and forces her to wear her now iconic metal bikini after she frees Han from the carbonite.

After Luke kills the Rancor, Jabba sentences Luke and Han to be fed to the Sarlacc. Just as all seems lost, Lando, disguised as a guard, helps Luke and Han overpower their captors. Leia seizes the moment to kill Jabba by strangling him with the very chain that bound her. R2-D2 cuts her loose, and after Luke boards the sailbarge, he rescues Leia. With Leia's help, Luke uses a deck cannon to blow up his barge as they swing to safety.

While preparing for a last battle with the Empire on Endor, Luke reveals to a stunned Leia that she is, in fact, his twin sister, and that Vader is their father. Initially reluctant to believe him, Leia realizes that Luke speaks the truth and joins Han Solo in leading the Rebels in battle on Endor as the Rebel Fleet battle the second Death Star. Leia is slightly injured in the battle, but nevertheless helps the Rebels, allied with the Ewoks, to defeat the Empire.

Sweet natured garbage collector.  In space.

Bio:

Ai Tanabe is the newest member of the Debris Section. She is the adopted daughter of a death metal band leader turned engineer and an elementary school teacher. Tanabe did not speak until she was three years old. She is bright and earnest, but mostly unsure of herself. As a newcomer to space, the Debris Section and to extra-vehicular activity all at the same time, she has to slowly learn the ropes from everyone else. She believes that love, or "ai" (possibly a pun intended on her name being the Japanese word for love) is the solution to every problem. Kind and sweet, she is willing to do almost anything to help others. However, her kind spirit also masks a drive to become better than she is.

(http://media.animegalleries.net/albums/Urusei_Yatsura/ataru-lum/uy_ataru-lum005.jpg?=123)

(41 Points) 2 of 24 Lists - Highest Ranking - #2 CJones
   
Appeal:

Sexy and affectionate.  Unfortunately, also clingy and will electro-blast you should you look at another woman.

Bio:

Lum is royalty and the daughter of the Oni alien Invader and is capable of flying and generating massive electrical discharges. She generally wears a tiger-striped bikini and Go-Go Boots which highlight her shapely figure, and has two tiny horns on her head that, when sprayed with a special solution, can be shaped to resemble barrettes. When these horns are removed (or when specially blessed yellow ribbons are tied around them), her electric and flying abilities disappear and she becomes a regular girl. Lum's appearance and clothing (and that of her family) draw heavily on the Japanese god of thunder, Raijin.

She grew up on her homeworld Oniboshi a precocious girl and attended primary school with Benten of the Oni's rivals, the Lucky Gods, Oyuki, the ice princess, and Ran. There the four of them developed a reputation for causing massive amounts of trouble. Ran often got roped into their mischief and then took all the blame, while Lum got off unharmed, which later lead Ran to seek revenge. In junior high school, Lum, Benten, and Oyuki's reputation grew into them becoming a school gang. Lum later got engaged to a handsome Oni named Rei, but rejected him because of his dullness. When she was seventeen, the Oni attempted to invade the planet Earth, an event that would change her life forever.

That day, Lum met Ataru Moroboshi for the first time. He had been randomly selected by computer to face her in a game of tag with the fate of the earth on the line. Ataru had been promised marriage by his then-girlfriend Shinobu if he could win, which spurred him to success, but upon catching Lum he declared "Now I can get married!" Lum misinterpreted this as a proposal to herself and accepted it. Because engagements are sacred on her planet, she is determined to be married to Ataru for the rest of her life. Since then, she has forced her way into his life as his "loving wife," much to his chagrin because it compromised his ability to flirt. The relationship between Lum and Ataru has been called "a humorously exaggerated parody of a common Japanese husband and wife dynamic.”

Because of her gorgeous appearance, Lum has become extremely popular with the boys at Tomobiki High School. Despite this, she refutes all of their advances since she is devoted to Ataru. Most of the time, she is very laid back, enjoying the quirks and perks of life on Earth. But she is quick to anger and responds with powerful electric discharges to anyone who enrages her, usually Ataru or any person who attacks or insults her "Darling". Once the threat passes, Lum reverts to her usual cheery attitude.

Lum is very intelligent, but very naive about life on earth, with a worldview comparable to that of a kindergartener. She does not understand why the other boys at school feel that the philandering Ataru is not good enough for her, but she cares about their well-being. She has successfully adapted herself to life on Earth thanks to her technology. She still struggles to keep her younger cousin Ten from wreaking havoc thanks to his own naiveté about human behavior. For the most part, however, people who look at her for the first time view her as a highly attractive schoolgirl, despite her obviously different appearance. She has the qualities of the ideal wife and daughter-in-law in Japanese society as she takes good care of her darling and she helps her "mother-in-law" with the housework whenever she is free.

Lum is well-versed in the use of technology, and carries a variety of advanced gadgets from her society with her, with the stranger gadgets hidden in her bikini top. But while her intentions in operating them are often noble, such as copying a notebook to help Ataru study for an exam, the results are rarely what Lum intends. This may be in part because she is naive regarding the customs of Earth, so she often misunderstands what people say. The best example of this is her innocent misinterpretation of Ataru's victory yell after he defeated her in tag. She believed it to be an instant marriage, rather than a proposal, or even just the celebratory shout it really was.

She drinks Tabasco sauce as if it were juice and the food she cooks is violently spicy. It does not stop her from trying to prepare edible victuals, and she enjoys preparing food for Ataru, who angers her by refusing to consume it for fear of burning his tongue. Eating umeboshi causes her to get drunk and she dislikes garlic. Despite efforts from everybody she knows to convince her otherwise, her love for Ataru remains unchanged because he has consistently proven that he genuinely cares for her well-being in spite of his idiotic facade. These events have convinced Lum that Ataru is indeed the right man for her.

Appeal:

Cool hipster chick.

Bio:

Ramona presents a tough, independent exterior and behaves like a free-spirit (as evidenced by her constant dyeing of her hair). She does not hesitate to impose her views on Scott (such as criticizing the apartment he and Wallace live in), and can be quite bossy at times (such as telling Scott to get a job so that she doesn't have to travel through his lame dreams when she's at work). She also maintains a "mysterious" aura, telling Scott very little about herself at least initially, while simultaneously striving to learn as much as possible about Scott's past relationships nearly to the point of being invasive.

However, Ramona's "mysterious" nature and tough exterior are really just cover for her own insecurities. At the heart of things, Ramona is a runner. She fears commitment - or as she puts it: 'Getting stuck' - which is why she's had so many failed relationships. Like Scott, Ramona is afraid to face her past, and literally runs from it. Deep down, Ramona is unhappy with the kind of person she is, but doesn't think she can change.
At the end of the series, Ramona is still uncertain if she can change, but - with Scott's encouragement - she is willing to try.

#31 Princess Leia Organa

So...wow, my #6 is at #31?

Rest of the list will be...videogame and Whedonverse characters I guess?

Seeing how the list is shaping up, I'd be very surprised if more than one of my top-ten made it. Not complaining; just didn't expect it to quite the way it has so far. I'd comment on other people's picks, but I honestly have no idea who these people are. Ai Tanabe? Lum Invader? Seriously, no fucking clue.

As for Leia, I thought about it, but decided not to include her because when it comes down to it, I'm not a huge fan of the character. I like her sass, but I just never connected with the character in a meaningful way. I'm glad she made the list, though. Not only is it nice to see the occasional flesh-and-blood person here, but she's an iconic character.


#29 Ramona Flowers

The only Ramona Flowers I'm familiar with is the one from the movie, and while she's easy on the eyes, I didn't find the actual character very appealing.

Ah Gwen Stacy.

My brother, sister and I couldn't believe it. They killed Gwen, how could they do that?  I don't know if I've ever cried reading a comic book, not sure if I did so then. But I might have, I was a seriously grieved young lad. And I would never trust Stan Lee again (j/k  :D

Thanks, Quirk. The only anime I ever really watched as a series was Bebop. I even had Faye on my initial list, but she didn't make the final cut. I knew that not being super into anime or video games was probably going to put me outside this list's primary demo. Not to mention the only animated characters I have are from the cartoon sitcoms. Oh well, still holding out hope to sneak a couple on here before we're done.

I know that. But back then Stan was Marvel. Whether he wrote it or not, we saw him as "the decider". The guy who gave thumbs up or down on whatever went on in Marvel's universe. I still loved Stan, but in my 12 year old mind, he was ultimately responsible for breaking my young heart (well, him and the Green Goblin) ;)

Edit: But I loved this quote from Wiki about the behind the scenes decision... "Lee himself agreed because he was "busy packing for a trip" and "just wanted them out of his office", and when he returned he began asking why they killed Gwen."

Obviously I know who Lum is, since I had her #2. Lum, and Urusei Yatsura are quite well known in Japan.

However, I sure as heck did not expect to see Ai Tanabe. I wouldn't call her a "crush" (this is coming from the person who had Mrs Brisby and Fluttershy on his list). And I haven't been into anime in over 10 years. However, I did watch Planetes, and it is VERY good. Highly recommended, if you can find a copy of it.

Gwen was a much better love interest than Mary Jane. I hate her.

I'm indifferent to her... at least in the comics of the last few decades.  I know I lot of people care about her because she was Spider-Man's wife when they started reading.  But reading the early Spider-Man books, she was a total breath of fresh air.  At the time, it was obvious that Gwen Stacy was the girl for Peter, although Liz Allen kept following him around like a love sick puppy (after a powerless Peter "pretended" to be Spider-Man and stood up to Doc Ock, she was impressed).  But then when Mary Jane showed up (after over a year of Peter trying to avoid a date made by his Aunt and his Aunt's friend) and ultimate sad-sack Peter ends up getting hooked up with an extroverted over-the-top party girl.  She provided a nice contrast to the other girls in Peter's life as well as Peter himself: thrill-seeking, flirty and the life of the party.  Over time, she became a little more generic, which could be attributed to growth (I'm sure there are fans who argue about it) but took away a lot of the character's initial appeal.  Personally, I think that in her first appearance, she had as big a personality as J Jonah Jameson, only somewhat hotter (JK Simmons is not a bad looking man).

(41 Points) 3 of 24 Lists - Highest Ranking - #6 RoninFox
   
Appeal:

Very aggressive in combat and in romance.

Bio:

Ryoko is a key character in the various Tenchi Muyo! anime series by AIC. While details of her character differ between the various series, Ryoko is typically shown as an attractive, semi-reformed powerful space pirate who is madly in love with the series main character, Tenchi Masaki. In the various series, Ryoko is portrayed as being impulsive, hedonistic (with a penchant for sake), poor-mannered, often immodest, recklessly violent, and hot-tempered although she sometimes reveals her more emotional and vulnerable side.

In the anime, Ryoko universally holds an intense rivalry with the character Ayeka, who also fights for Tenchi's affections. Often the conflict between the two comes out of their decidedly different personalities, with Ryoko being the tomboyish troublemaker and Ayeka being the well-mannered, but often snooty aristocrat. The level of the rivalry can vary between being equitable to a pair of bickering siblings to an all-out feud.

While the name Ryoko is a common feminine given name in Japan, in this instance it is written with very uncommon kanji. Ryoko's name can be translated as "bringer of demons" and is stated as meaning "The Devil Caller" in the OVA series.

Angelina Jolie with a computer

Bio:

In 1988, Dade "Zero Cool" Murphy (age 11) is arrested and charged with crashing 1,507 systems in one day and causing a single-day 7-point drop in the New York Stock Exchange. Upon conviction, he is banned from owning or operating computers or touch-tone telephones until his 18th birthday.

Shortly before Dade (Jonny Lee Miller) turns 18, his mother (now divorced) takes a job in New York City. Upon turning 18, Dade calls a local television station, dupes the security guard into giving him the modem's phone number (a tactic known as social engineering) and successfully hacks into the station's computer network, changing the current TV program to an episode of The Outer Limits. However, Dade is "attacked" by a hacker (handle "Acid Burn") on the same network. During the conversation, Dade identifies himself by the new alias, Crash Override.

Dade enrolls at Stanton High School, where he meets Kate Libby (Angelina Jolie), who is assigned to take him on a tour of the school. After Dade learns that Kate is "Acid Burn", a feud erupts between them.

The real trouble begins when Joey Pardella (Jesse Bradford), the novice hacker of the group, successfully breaks into an Ellingson Mineral Company supercomputer to prove to the rest of the group that he is an elite hacker. To validate this feat, he downloads part of a garbage file. Unfortunately, the company's IT employee Hal (Penn Jillette) detects this unauthorized entry and summons computer security officer Eugene "The Plague" Belford (Fisher Stevens) to deal with the problem. He realizes the file being downloaded can prove that The Plague is stealing from the company via salami slicing. The Plague enlists the U.S. Secret Service to recover the file by claiming that it is the code to Da Vinci, a computer virus that will capsize the company's oil tanker fleet and he needs that code to destroy the virus.

Joey is arrested and his computer is searched, but the Secret Service finds nothing, as Joey has hidden the disk containing the files. In response, Dade and Kate decide to settle their disagreements with a hacking duel, with hacks focused on harassing Secret Service Agent Richard Gill (Wendell Pierce), a known enemy of hackers, who was involved in Joey's arrest. Kate and Dade's hacker friends—Ramon Sanchez a.k.a. "The Phantom Phreak," Emmanuel Goldstein a.k.a. "Cereal Killer", and Paul Cook a.k.a. "Lord Nikon" (so named for his photographic memory)—act as judges.

After being released on parole, Joey reveals the disk to Phantom Phreak in a public park; but they quickly realize that they are being followed by the Secret Service. The next day, Phreak is arrested. He uses his phone call to inform Kate that he hid the disk in a boy's bathroom at school. That evening, Kate and Cereal Killer ask Dade for his help; but, because of his record, he declines. Kate then asks Dade to copy the disk so that, if anyone else is arrested, they have the disk as evidence.

After determining that Dade is not the one who hacked into Ellingson, The Plague attempts to enlist Dade's help to find the one who did. First, he offers Dade a free high-powered laptop. Later, he threatens to have Dade's mother incarcerated with a manufactured criminal record. At this, Dade agrees to deliver Kate's copy of the disk.

Meanwhile, Kate, Lord Nikon, and Cereal Killer attempt to discern the contents of the disk. Dade joins them; and, after working all night, they learn the truth—it's designed to salami-slice$25 million from Ellingson transactions. Dade reveals that he knows Plague is behind this scheme, because he was the one who wanted Kate's copy of the disk. He admits he gave Plague the disk and reveals his history as Zero Cool.

Determined to stop the scheme, the assembled hackers plan to hack the Gibson again. Kate and Dade go dumpster-diving for employee memos with passwords; Cereal Killer installs a hidden microphone in the Ellingson offices; and Nikon poses as a delivery boy wandering the Ellingson cubicles, memorizing employee passwords as they enter them. From the memos, they discover the Da Vinci virus is set to capsize the fleet the next day, which would provide the perfect cover to distract from the salami-slicing worm. In need of help, they seek out Razor and Blade, the producers of a hacker-themed pirate TV show, "Hack the Planet."

The next morning, they evade the Secret Service and converge on Grand Central station, where they use payphones to begin their assault on the Gibson. At first, their attempts are easily rebuffed by Plague, who calls Dade to warn him to escape before he is arrested. However, Razor and Blade have contacted hackers around the world, who lend their support with virus attacks, distracting Plague long enough for Dade to download the incriminating file to a floppy disk.

Shortly after crashing the Gibson, Dade and company are arrested. As they're being led away, Dade surreptitiously informs Cereal Killer, hiding in the crowd, that he's tossed the disk in a trashcan. As Dade and Kate are being interrogated, Razor and Blade jam the local television signals and broadcast live video of Cereal Killer, revealing the plot and Plague's complicity. Plague is arrested when he tries to flee to Japan under the alias "Mr. Babbage" (a reference to Charles Babbage).

Their names cleared, Dade and Kate go on a date. Kate even wears a dress. While relaxing in a pool on the roof of a building, their friends show off their latest hack—the lights in several adjacent office buildings spell out "CRASH AND BURN."

The original OAV series was pretty good. Back when I was in college I was in an anime club, and we attempted to watch the TV series in straight Japanese. None of us had the slightest idea what was going on, but it was fun to guess.

As a young girl, Scully's favorite book was Moby-Dick and she came to nickname her father "Ahab" from the book, and in return, he called her "Starbuck." Due to this she named her dog Queequeg.

Scully attended The University of Maryland, and earned a B.S. in Physics. Her undergraduate thesis was titled Einstein's Twin Paradox: A New Interpretation. While in medical school she was recruited by the FBI; she accepted the agency's offer of employment because she felt she could distinguish herself there. Upon being partnered with Fox Mulder, she maintained her medical skills by acting as a forensic pathologist, often performing or consulting on autopsies of victims on X-Files cases.

In the second season Scully is kidnapped by an ex-FBI mental patient named Duane Barry, and is then taken from Barry by a military covert operation that were working with the alien conspirators, but is later returned. In the third season she finds out that a super hi-tech microchip was implanted in the back of her neck. After having it removed, she developed cancer in the fourth season.

She is hospitalized after her cancer becomes terminal. She is saved when Mulder breaks into the Department of Defense to retrieve another chip to be implanted back into her neck. It should be mentioned that, at the time, Scully was also undergoing experimental medical treatments and was having a dramatic renewal of her faith.

After being pronounced infertile in the fifth season, Scully mysteriously became pregnant in the show's seventh season finale, "Requiem". The child, named William, after Mulder's father, was born at the end of the eighth season. The cause of her pregnancy is never formally revealed; however the most probable of theories is that Mulder fathered the child, as growing intimacy in the later portion of the series seemed to propose a sexual relationship between the two (season 7 episode "All Things" is seen as proof due to its opening scene, though the remainder of the episode takes place prior to the opening scene, and the closing scene can also be interpreted as proof against this). Beyond this, the pair had unsuccessfully tried for a child through in vitro fertilization. It was around this time that Mulder was fired from the FBI by Deputy Director Alvin Kersh, and Scully left the field to teach forensics at Quantico. William was given up for adoption during the end of the ninth season after Scully felt she could no longer provide the safety that William needed. William was a "miracle child", of some importance to the alien Conspiracy. He demonstrated extraordinary powers, including telekinesis.

In The X-Files: I Want to Believe she is shown working as a doctor at the Our Lady of Sorrows Hospital in Virginia. Early on in the film Scully is contacted by the FBI who are looking for Fox Mulder in the hope that he will assist them with the investigation of a missing FBI agent. In exchange for his help the charges against him will be dropped. Unlike Mulder, Scully was apparently not considered a fugitive by the FBI. However, she did continue to maintain her romantic relationship with Mulder throughout the six years that he was on the run from the American government. In the movie they are shown to be living together in a secluded house.

Ah, Ryoko. One of the main reasons I started watching a lot of anime in the late 90s. Tenchi was the first series I started watching regularly (thank you, pre-adult swim era late night Toonami block) and Ryoko was the first character in it to really catch my attention. It was interesting for awhile, each one of my friends had a different favorite Tenchi girl. My friend Nick was into Kyone. Art liked Washu. Nathan actually dug Mihoshi. We all mocked Jay because he picked Tsunami without really paying attention and we had to break the news that she was the alter ego of the little girl Sasami.

The original OAV series was pretty good. Back when I was in college I was in an anime club, and we attempted to watch the TV series in straight Japanese. None of us had the slightest idea what was going on, but it was fun to guess.

I liked Washu BTW.

Washu was a fun character too.  She was my second favorite character on the show next to Ryoko.  

I actually got started watching the first TV series, and went back later to watch the OAV.  By then I was hooked and I had to buy everything I could, including the three movies (two of which were good), the Tenchi in Tokyo TV series (which a considerably lower percentage of episodes were good), and all the goofy little spin-offs like the Mihoshi special and the Magical Girl Pretty Sammy parodies.  After sitting through that much, I was able to calm down, and not go nuts over Tenchi again until the GXP series and the new episodes of the OAV finally came out.

Gah! How did I forget her?!? She's probably my favourite Whedon character, too. 

WHY?!?!?! Sorry, I just NEVER get the love for her. I put her down there with Cordelia and Kennedy. I mean, let's remove her looks entirely. If she was played by any other actress would the character be as well liked?

Fred's a pile of wonderful. Cordelia's character arc from the first season of Buffy up until the fourth season of Angel is pretty amazing. Kennedy's abysmal introduction was remedied in the eighth season. It wasn't anything transforming, but they fleshed her out a bit becoming someone you cheered for (and those tees she wore!).

Yup. The RiffTrax Round Table, where Genesis is a massively popular band, and horse-fucking is a-ok!

Appeal:

Pretty, tough and occasionally scatterbrained but still a great leader.

Bio:

Buffy Summers is a fictional character from Joss Whedon's Buffy the Vampire Slayer franchise. She first appeared in the 1992 film Buffy the Vampire Slayer before going on to appear in the television series and subsequent comic book of the same name. The character has also appeared in the spin-off series Angel, as well as numerous non-canon expanded universe material, such as novels, comics, and video games. Buffy was portrayed by Kristy Swanson in the film, and later by Sarah Michelle Gellar in the television series. Giselle Loren has lent her voice to the character in both the Buffy video games and an unproduced animated series.

Buffy is the protagonist of the story, and the series depicts her everyday life as she grows up. In the film, she is a high school cheerleader who learns that she is the Slayer (a Chosen One gifted with the strength and skills to fight vampires, demons, and the forces of darkness). The television series shows Buffy carrying out her destiny in a small town built atop a portal to hell (Hellmouth), surrounded by a group of friends and family who support her in her mission. In the comic book continuation, she is a young woman who has accepted her duties and is now responsible for training others like her. The character of Buffy was created to subvert the stereotypical female horror film victim; Whedon wanted to create a strong female cultural icon.

It’s funny, but I don’t remember.

Bio:

Emotionally withdrawn Joel Barish (Jim Carrey) and unhinged free spirit Clementine Kruczynski (Kate Winslet) strike up a relationship on a Long Island Rail Road train from Montauk, New York. They are drawn to each other on account of their radically different personalities.

Although they apparently do not realize it at the time, Joel and Clementine are in fact former lovers, now separated after having spent two years together. After a nasty fight, Clementine hired the New York City firm Lacuna, Inc. to erase all her memories of their relationship. (The term "lacuna" means a gap or missing part; for instance, lacunar amnesia is a gap in one's memory about a specific event.) Upon discovering this, Joel is devastated and decides to undergo the procedure himself, a process that takes place while he sleeps.

Much of the film takes place in Joel's mind. As his memories are erased, Joel finds himself revisiting them in reverse. Upon seeing happier times of his relationship with Clementine from earlier in their relationship, he struggles to preserve at least some memory of her and his love for her. Despite his efforts, the memories are slowly erased, with the last memory of Clementine telling him: "Meet me in Montauk".

YES!!! Of course this comes up right after I'm bitching. To the other person who voted for Clementine, thanks. I like the cut of your jib.

For me, Clementine is the epitome of the adorable kook. I immediately connected with the character because I had a similar experience with a girl who had a radically-different personality. She taught me a lot about life and changed me as a person. I'm lucky to have known her.</sap>

I love everything about this movie; one of my all-time favorites. I love Kate Winslet and this is far and away my favorite character she's played. She's just perfect in a very imperfect way.

Appeal:

According to BBQ Platypus: The forbidden fruit angle

Bio:

Rogue is a fictional character in most of the Marvel Comics award-winning X-Men related titles. She was created by author Chris Claremont and artist Michael Golden, and debuted in Avengers Annual #10 (November 1981) as a villain. An earlier story, intended for Ms. Marvel #25 (June 1979) went unpublished until 1992. Rogue was born as a mutant. More so than most, Rogue considers her powers a curse: she involuntarily absorbs and sometimes also removes the memories, physical strength, and (in the case of superpowered persons) the abilities of anyone she touches. For most of her life, this potentially fatal power prevented her from making any physical contact with others, including her on-off love interest, Gambit, but after many years Rogue finally gained full control over her power.

Hailing from Caldecott, Mississippi (a fictional county), Rogue is the X-Men's self-described southern belle. A runaway, she was adopted by Mystique of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants and grew up as a villain. After Rogue permanently absorbed Ms. Marvel's psyche andKree powers, she reformed and turned to the X-Men, fearing for her sanity. Writer Chris Claremont played a significant role in the character's subsequent development. Rogue is unusual among the X-Men as her real name and her early history were not revealed until more than twenty years after her introduction. Until the back story provided by Robert Rodi in the ongoing Rogue series began in September 2004, Rogue's background was only hinted at. Her name was revealed as Anna Marie, although her surname is still unknown. She has sometimes been called Raven which is really the first name of her foster mother Mystique.

Cool, deadly and quick with a quip.  Just like Bob Saget.

Bio:

James Bond, code name 007, is a fictional character created in 1953 by writer Ian Fleming, who featured him in twelve novels and two short story collections. There have been six other authors who wrote authorised Bond novels or novelizations after Fleming's death in 1964:Kingsley Amis, Christopher Wood, John Gardner, Raymond Benson, Sebastian Faulks and Jeffery Deaver. Additionally, Charlie Higson wrote a series on a young James Bond and Kate Westbrook wrote three novels based on the diaries of a recurring series character, Moneypenny.

The fictional British Secret Service agent has also been adapted for television, radio, comic strip and video game formats as well as being used in the longest running and the second-highest grossing film franchise to date, which started in 1962 with Dr. No, starring Sean Conneryas Bond. As of 2012, there have been twenty two films in the Eon Productions series, with a twenty third, Skyfall, due for release on 26 October 2012. The film will star Daniel Craig in his third portrayal of Bond: he is the sixth actor to play Bond in the Eon series. There have also been two independent productions of Bond films, Casino Royale, a 1967 spoof, and Never Say Never Again, a 1984 remake of an earlier Eon produced film, Thunderball.

The films are renowned for a number of features, including the musical accompaniment, with the theme songs to the films having picked up Academy Award nominations on several occasions. Other important elements which run through most of the films include Bond's cars, his guns and the gadgets he is supplied with by Q Branch.

Appeal:

Smart, funny, strong-willed, strong (regular type) and a damned good lawyer.

Bio:

Jennifer Walters, the cousin of Bruce Banner (Hulk), is the small and somewhat shy daughter of Los Angeles County Sheriff William Morris Walters and Elaine (née Banner) Walters (who died in a car crash when Jennifer was seventeen). Operatives of Nicholas Trask, a crime boss who had crossed paths with her father, shot and seriously wounded her on a day that Bruce Banner happened to be in town for a visit. Since no other donors with her blood type were available, Banner provided his own blood for a transfusion; as they already shared the same blood type and DNA, his radioactive blood, combined with her anger transformed Jennifer into the green-skinned She-Hulk when the mobsters tried to finish her off at the hospital.

As She-Hulk, Jennifer possessed powers similar to those of her cousin, though at a reduced level. She also possessed a less monstrous, more amazonian appearance. Initially, the transformation to her She-Hulk form was triggered (as with Bruce Banner's) by anger. Like her cousin Bruce, his counterpart, the Leader, Doc Samson, and most other persons mutated by exposure to Gamma Radiation over the years, her mutated form was originally explained as being molded by her subconscious desire to look like the ideal woman. She eventually gains control of her transformations when Michael Morbius cures her of a lethal blood disease. As a criminal defense lawyer, she defended Dr. Michael Morbius in his trial for his vampiric killings.


The character's personality has changed over the years: originally ill-tempered and violent, she is now depicted as a fun-loving, kind, empathetic, yet still feisty woman who frequently uses humor when fighting. She has stated that she does not want to kill her foes, especially ones that she has already subdued.

She has also started and led her own disaster relief organization and felt great remorse for almost destroying a small town (due to her transformed state briefly turning uncontrollable from radiation), whereupon she helped construction workers to rebuild it.

As a highly idealistic lawyer, the character has a history of defending the rights of minorities, the mentally ill, civil liberties, including the right for criminals to not be unduly mistreated and get a proper defense, or individuals to not be victimized by certain less ethical corporations, but also a belief in the necessity of law and order. These priorities have sometimes made her personally conflicted, such as reversing her stance regarding the "Superhuman Registration Act"; and being disillusioned when her more famous cousin (whom she considers as a brother) was shot into space without due process, or when what she thought to be a torturer and murderer of children was cleared from all charges.

In an interview former She-Hulk writer Peter David describes her as follows: "She-Hulk has the potential to be our Wonder Woman. A powerful female with a strong moral center and a determination to do what's right. She's also a unique combination of brains and brawn. The ideal She-Hulk story is one that plays on both aspects of her make-up, the intelligence combined with her strength."

Appeal:

Compassionate, gentle yet frank, considerate and a person you want to go on a trip with.  Your last trip.

Bio:

In the stories, Death is both the end of life and a psychopomp. Like most anthropomorphic personifications of death, Death meets with the recently deceased and guides them into their new existence. However, unlike most personifications of death, she also visits people as they are born, according to Destruction in the Sandman Special. Evidently, only she seems to remember these encounters. In the special issue, it is also revealed that Death was known in Ancient Greece as Teleute.

Physically, Death is also opposite to the traditional western culture personification of death (see Grim Reaper). In The Sandman, Death instead appears as an attractive, pale young goth woman dressed in casual clothes - often a black top and jeans. She also wears a silver ankh on a chain around her neck, and has a marking similar to the eye of Horus around her right eye. She is pleasant, down-to-earth, perky, and has been a nurturing figure for both incarnations of Dream. This irony has helped make Death one of the most popular characters from Sandman. Death was named the fifteenth greatest comic book character by Empire Magazine. She was ranked second in Comics Buyer's Guide's "100 Sexiest Women in Comics" list.

Death is the second eldest of the Endless, a family of anthropomorphic beings. Death is possibly the most powerful of the Endless (and may be the most powerful being in the universe) having been shown (in a flashback in Brief Lives) to be virtually omniscient and being able to intimidate the Furies, who show no fear of the other Endless, simply by raising her voice in The Kindly Ones. The witch Thessaly mentions that Death is the only one of the Endless who is bound by no rules. In addition, it is mentioned in Brief Lives that she is the only one of the Endless who may survive the end of this incarnation of the universe. Death's realm is not portrayed in detail in the series, except for a brief scene in her 'house' in the Sandman Special, Song of Orpheus, and later in The Books of Magic series. This is where she keeps her floppy hat collection, her goldfish Slim and Wandsworth and possibly her gallery. A brief glimpse of her realm can also be seen in The Little Endless Storybook, when Barnabas visits her, although this time in her 'apartment suite.'

One day every century, Death lives (and dies) as a mortal, in order to understand the value of the life she takes. She does this by becoming a mortal fated to die that day. At the end of Death: The High Cost of Living her Endless self briefly converses with her mortal self.

Good God man, why would you say that  :gouge:

If you're going for maximum effect, that really is the perfect word. "Root." Yeesh! The mere concept of being "removed at the root" brings on a sort of dull ache.

Appeal:

A thirst for adventure (a good quality for any companion).

Bio:

Amelia Pond is introduced in the first episode of the 2010 series, "The Eleventh Hour", as a seven year old girl living with only her aunt, Sharon, when the Doctor crashes into her backyard one night.[9] She asks him to investigate an unusual crack in her wall, but he is interrupted by the TARDIS' cloister bell; he promises Amelia that he will return in five minutes, but is inadvertently late by twelve years. In the intervening period, the Doctor is believed by Amelia's family and friends to be her imaginary friend. She is treated by four psychiatrists as a result of her insistence that the "Raggedy Doctor" is real, biting them for insisting that the Doctor is imaginary. When the Doctor returns, Amy is nineteen years old and working as a kissogram. Amy then helps the Doctor save Earth from the Atraxi, but due to the TARDIS' unstable state, does not see the Doctor again for a further two years, when she is twenty-one and he invites her to travel with him; she accepts on the condition that the Doctor return her by the following morning, not revealing that her wedding is the next day.

Amy was adventurous and reckless, with a dry wit and a stubborn streak. She had a difficult childhood and felt abandoned by the Doctor; she was rarely open with her feelings and often mistrustful and wary. She held people she cared for at arm's length, as she did in her early relationship with Rory and the Doctor upon his return.

As a child, Amelia was stoic and able to care for herself. She prayed to Santa Claus for help with the crack in her wall and was unsurprised to meet the Doctor. She lusted for the adventure of travel with him. When he did not return, she grew into a cynical and aggressive young woman.

I'm very much enjoying the little intro one-liners. "Bone, let's bone." elicited an audible expression of my appreciation of the humor.

Death sounds like a very interesting character. I'm utterly fascinated with the concept of an afterlife and all of its potential infrastructure.

Bio:

Harley Quinn (Dr. Harleen Frances Quinzel) is a villain in the fictional Batman universe. She was first introduced on September 11, 1992, in Batman: The Animated Series, and later adapted into DC Comics' Batman comic books. As suggested by her name (a play on the word "harlequin"), she is clad in the manner of a traditional harlequin jester. The character is a frequent accomplice and the girlfriend of Batman's nemesis the Joker, and is also close to Poison Ivy, from whom she gained her immunity to poisons and toxins, as well as her advanced physical abilities.

Harley Quinn first appeared in the Batman: The Animated Series episode "Joker's Favor", as what was originally supposed to be the animated equivalent of a walk-on role; a number of police officers were to be taken hostage by someone jumping out of a cake, and it was decided that to have the Joker do so himself would be too bizarre (although he ended up doing so anyway). Dini thus created a female sidekick for the Joker. Arleen Sorkin, a former star of the soap opera Days of our Lives, appeared in a dream sequence on that series in which she wore a jester costume; Dini used this scene as an inspiration for Quinn. Having been friends with Sorkin since college, he incorporated aspects of her personality into the character.

Bio:

Leela was born to Turanga Morris and Munda, two mutants dwelling in the sewer deep under New New York City. When Leela was still an infant, her parents gave her up to an orphanarium with a note scribbled with mysterious symbols to make an impression that Leela was an alien, so that she would have a better life than a typical mutant. For the first three seasons of the series Leela does not give up hope of meeting another member of her race of one-eyed aliens. In the episode "A Bicyclops Built for Two", Leela meets Alcazar, a cyclops who convinces her that he and she are the last two members of their extinct race, only to discover that he is a shapeshifting impostor. Leelal's parent's plan of concealing her origins works well until an industrial accident caused by environmentally irresponsible Bender brings Leela and her friends into the New New York City's sewer system where for the first time Leela meets her parents and discovers that she is not a cyclopean alien, but is actually a sewer mutant.

In the episode "The Problem with Popplers" Leela's family name, Turanga was used for the first time. The episode "Less Than Hero" establishes that among Leela and her parents, their family name is placed before the given name.

(47 Points) 2 of 24 Lists - Highest Ranking - #1 Jim Dalen
   
Appeal:

Her intangibles.

Bio:

Katherine Anne "Kitty" Pryde is a fictional character that appears in comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character first appeared in Uncanny X-Men #129 (Jan. 1980) and was created by writer-artist John Byrne.

A mutant, Pryde possesses a "phasing" ability that allows her and objects or people with which she is in contact to become intangible. This power also disrupts any electrical field she passes through, and lets her simulate levitation. At the time of her membership, under the codename Sprite (suggested by Storm in lieu of Professor X's suggestion, Ariel), Pryde was the youngest person invited to join the team of mutant superheroes the X-Men. Her current codename is Shadowcat.

During her early years, she was portrayed as a "kid sister" to many older members of the X-Men, filling the role of literary foil to the more established characters. In the years since her introduction, she has aged and matured, and has become a main character on her own.

Katherine Anne "Kitty" Pryde was born in Deerfield, Illinois to Carmen and Theresa Pryde. Of Jewish descent, her paternal grandfather, Samuel Prydeman, was held in a Nazi concentration camp during World War II. Kitty started to have headaches at age thirteen, signaling the emergence of her mutant powers. She was approached by both the X-Men's Charles Xavier and the Hellfire Club's White Queen, Emma Frost, both of whom hoped to recruit her for their respective causes. Kitty was unnerved by Frost, observing that the White Queen had looked at her as if she were "something good to eat." She got along better with Xavier and the three X-Men who escorted him to his meeting with her and her parents, becoming fast friends with Ororo Munroe. Ororo told Kitty who she really was and about the X-Men, which made the teenager even more enthusiastic about attending Xavier's school.

Their conversation was cut short, however, when they (along with Wolverine and Colossus) were attacked by armored mercenaries in the employ of Frost and the Hellfire Club. The X-Men defeated their assailants, but were subdued by the White Queen's telepathic powers immediately after. In the confusion, Kitty had become separated from the X-Men and therefore was not captured along with them. She managed to contact Cyclops, Phoenix, and Nightcrawler. With the help of Dazzler and Pryde, those X-Men rescued their teammates and Xavier (who had also been captured) from the Hellfire Club.

The White Queen appeared to perish in the battle, which meant she was no longer competing with Xavier for the approval of Kitty's parents. Unfortunately, Kitty's parents hadn't heard from her in more than a day, because during that time she was first being pursued by the Hellfire Club's men and then working with the X-Men to save their friends. All they knew was that Kitty had left with Xavier's "students" to get a soda, there had been reports that the soda shop had been blown up, and that Kitty had been missing since. Understandably, they were angry at Xavier when he finally returned with Kitty in tow. At first, it seemed like there was no chance of Kitty being allowed to attend the school and join the X-Men. Phoenix then decided to use her considerable telepathic power to erase the memories of Kitty's parents and plant false ones, resulting in a complete shift in their attitude towards Xavier. Questions concerning the morality of tampering with minds in such a fashion aside, Kitty was then allowed to enroll at Xavier's school with her parents' blessing. She was the youngest person to join the X-Men up to that point.

Bio:
A young woman, she is Junpei's childhood friend, Akane. Her nickname is "Kanny."

999: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors (極限脱出 9時間9人9の扉 Kyokugen Dasshutsu Ku Jikan Ku Nin Kyū no Tobira?, lit. "Extreme Escape: 9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors") is an adventure game developed by Chunsoft and published in Japan by Spike on December 10, 2009, and in North America by Aksys Games on November 16, 2010. The game's design team was led by Kotaro Uchikoshi, who is also the writer of the acclaimed visual novel Ever 17: The Out of Infinity. A novel based on the game has also been released, with a slightly-different plot.

Nine people have been abducted by a mysterious kidnapper who uses the alias "Zero." They find themselves on a ship— possibly a replica of the RMS Titanic and are told that they have nine hours to escape before the ship sinks beneath the waves. Zero is running the "Nonary Game" - a game "where you will put your life on the line." The group is forced to split up into various subgroups and explore "numbered doors," behind which lie Zero's puzzles. Zero promises that escape lies behind a door numbered [9]. The characters must work together despite suspicions of each other to advance, as well as to discover Zero's motive and identity.

The game is very text-heavy for an adventure game; more emphasis is placed on the characters, their motives, and the mystery of the situation than the puzzles.

Appeal:

People love women with limited power at less pay than a man.

Bio:
Embodying the role of femme fatale, Holloway is a "bold" and "sassy" character. Creating the character, Mad Men's creator Matthew Weiner tried to make the character appear not as a television stereotype but an unpredictable and complicated woman. The Boston Globe has said that Holloway occupies "a sort of middle ground between the show's main female characters, who represent opposing paths for women of their day"; as Betty Draper (January Jones) gave up a modeling career to become a housewife and Peggy Olson (Elisabeth Moss) tries to become a copywriter in "a world where men routinely call women 'girls', and sometimes literally chase them through the office". Holloway is considered the queen bee of the office secretarial pool. As shown in the third season finale, her role at Sterling Cooper (and later Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce) is made clear. The office is essentially unable to operate without her, as no one else knows how the office is organized.

In an interview with USA Today portrayer Christina Hendricks explained that people think her character is "hot" because "She's got fire to her. She snaps back. And men love her because she's in touch with her sexuality and femininity. The men in the office can play with her a little bit. They can tease her, and she's not going to be in the bathroom crying later." In the season two episode "Maidenform" each secretary is categorized as either a Marilyn Monroe or a Jackie Kennedy as a campaign for Playtex, when asked what kind of woman Holloway is, Kinsey answers "Well, Marilyn's really a Joan, not the other way around".

The office pranks she and Jim play on his deskmate Dwight Schrute are a cornerstone of the series, as are the often bizarre tasks, assignments, and advice questions given to her by the branch's boss Michael Scott. At the beginning of the series, she was engaged to warehouse worker Roy Anderson, leading to several story arcs of "will they or won't they" tension between her and Jim. Pam is portrayed as a friendly and generally amiable employee of Dunder Mifflin.

Bio:
A giant boar-demon attacks an Emishi village and the protagonist, Ashitaka (Yōji Matsuda), is forced to fight and kill him. In the struggle, Ashitaka receives a curse which grants him superhuman strength but will eventually kill him. Under the advice of the village wisewoman (Mitsuko Mori), he leaves to travel to the west in search of a cure. After some traveling, he meets Jigo (Kaoru Kobayashi), a wandering monk who tells Ashitaka that he might find help from the forest spirit of a mountain range populated by giant animal-gods. Iron Town, located in that range, continually clears the nearby forests to make charcoal to smelt ironsand and produces advanced firearms, leading to battles with the giant forest beasts. Among these animals are giant wolves, who are accompanied by San (Yuriko Ishida), a human girl adopted by the wolves, whom the villagers of Iron Town call "Princess Mononoke." Ashitaka finds two villagers injured by the wolves near a river, whom he returns to Iron Town, passing through the forest, where he catches a glimpse of the forest spirit, a kirin-like creature by day and a towering "night-walker" by night.

In Iron Town, Ashitaka learns from Lady Eboshi (Yūko Tanaka), the manager of the settlement, that she created the boar-demon by shooting it. Though upset, Ashitaka also finds out that Iron Town is a refuge for ancient Japan's social outcasts, including prostitutes andlepers, and thus finds himself unable to condemn Eboshi. That night, San infiltrates Iron Town to kill Eboshi. Ashitaka intervenes, using his curse's power to stop the fighting between Eboshi and San. While leaving the town with San, he is shot through the chest and very nearly dies. San takes Ashitaka to the Forest Spirit, who revives him, but does not remove the curse. San starts to develop feelings for Ashitaka. Boars, led by the boar god Okkoto (Hisaya Morishige), arrive to attack Iron Town, and San joins them. Eboshi prepares for the assault and sets out to destroy the Forest Spirit. Jigo, now revealed to be a mercenary-hunter, intends to give the head to the emperor, who in turn promises to give Iron Town legal protection from local daimyos.

The Imperial hunters kill the boars, and Okkoto is corrupted by a gunshot wound. The Forest Spirit comes and kills Okkoto, but Eboshi appears and shoots off the Forest Spirit's head. Jigo collects the head as the Forest Spirit's body transforms into a "mindless god of death" that begins destroying everything in its vicinity in search of its head. Ashitaka and San chase down and take back the head from Jigo, returning it to the Forest Spirit. It collapses into the lake, turning the land green and healing all the lepers and accursed, including Ashitaka and San. Ashitaka and San part to resume the lives they are used to, but promise to meet again; Ashitaka decides to stay and help rebuild Iron Town, which a reformed Eboshi vows to remake as "a better" village. The film ends with a Kodama appearing in the rejuvenated forest.

You say this like it's a revelation, and like it isn't how the rest of us did our lists of "reals" (which I imagine is your denigratory term for people who aren't drawn).  I had characters from all sorts of media, but I'm vaguely annoyed that you keep implying that it's somehow wrong to use characters who are portrayed by actors and actresses, as if we can't make the distinction between the character and the portrayer.

I like Dawn better.

Dawn isn't as clever as Pam, and isn't nearly as attractive.

Well different strokes...

Oh and all of my crushes are of the "spending some time getting naked and sweaty with this character would be fun" variety. :)

That's the only definition I've ever used for a crush, real or fictional.

We'll mine's all over the place in that department.  As it gets closer to the top, it gets less shallow and "I wish I could date this person or failing that, we could be super-best friends."  I'm actually not all that interested in Death sexually (feel free to take out of context), but she seems like the most fun person ever.  Actually, I remember when first reading Sandman, she struck me as sort of an idealized version of an Aunt I had who was a strong fun city girl.  I haven't seen her in forever though, I hope she's doing OK.

Death seems like someone you want to go on a road trip with and do all the cool things there are to do in town.  She is sexy, but I get less of a sense of "horizontal fun" and more of a sense of "man, I hope she likes me."  And of course she would.  She's known me since the day I was born.  Just like you.

Unless his list matches somebody else's, I don't think this is any sort of foul play. I think it's just some lurker whose opinion we don't really care about.

Nope, not really.  I'll post it myself if he doesn't come forward later.

Also, I can't think about the term lurker without thinking of this cartoon.

Fair enough I suppose.  I neither love nor want to bone them.

What about enter into a business relationship with them.  If you where going to start a roofing company, having a pony with the power of flight would have it's advantages.

Especially using what your definition of crush seems to be, didn't you put him on your list as a kind of "if I were gay or a woman" kind of deal? I'm not saying there's a problem with doing that, but I'm just saying that including ponies as a "if I were a pony" kind of deal isn't THAT much weirder.

#14 Joan Holloway

I had Joan at #2 and I think it's awesome that she made the list and placed as high as she did. Joan is a total knockout of a bombshell, but I also greatly admire her as a character. All of the characters on Mad Man, whether male or female, make questionable decisions, but for me, the difference is in why they make those decisions. Joan is far from perfect, but she's a good person. In any context,, I think Joan is an example of a strong, likeable character, but the context of the period.

It's interesting to hear what people consider a 'crush'.  Webster Online defines it in this context as, "an intense and usually passing infatuation", with infatuation defined as, "to inspire with a foolish or extravagant love or admiration".  To me that doesn't seem to equal "would like to bone", so, had I submitted a list, my definition would've been something like "someone you look at and long to connect with as an emotionally intimate friend and 'partner', where it might get sexual at some point".  Because of that definition, a list of 'fictional crushes' from me would've been IMMEASURABLY different from a list of 'fictional characters I'd like to bone'.

That's because there are characters I might like sex with for one reason or another [generally because they'd likely be fun in that context] that I would NOT want a deep, intimate relationship with (because their personality would not be compatible long-term [or sometimes short-term].  The only crossover character that probably would've existed between the two lists ('Crush' and 'Bone') would likely be Inara from Firefly.

If Inara shows up on the list (which I suppose is likely), it'll be my turn to be slammed with a fat guy picture.

Quote
I admit that a lot (if not most) of my "you want to fuck ____?!?" is facetious, but I do think there needs to be some erotic element, even latent, to a crush or it's just synonymous with "admire."

I don't think "admire" necessarily has a romantic connotation, so there's the difference.

Yes... and the point I was making, or rather, trying to make for how I would have approached it, is that "wanting to bone" has neither admiration or romance to it, so I wouldn't have considered that alone as a 'crush'.  [Websters: "an intense and usually passing infatuation", with infatuation defined as, "to inspire with a foolish or extravagant love or admiration".  Since 'extravagant love' tends to be 'romantically extreme' [OH how I wish I could insert a self-playing power chord here!  ;D EXTREME ROMANCE!!  WOOO!!]  ... what was I saying?  Uh, that infatuation includes the 'love'/potential sex component, then it would 'fit' for me.  But since I didn't submit a list, it really makes no friggin' difference HOW I would have defined it.  ;)  So - uh - nevermind....]


Not that I had any, but I wouldn't be surprised if Firefly had half the top-ten locked up.
That and Buffy.

Funny thing is: as much as I like Whedon's shows [3 of my 5 lifetime favorite shows were his], about 99% of his 'women-folk' in those shows are WAY too f*cked in the head for me to have put on a 'crush' list.  I wouldn't have wanted a fantasy romantic relationship with any of them because of that.  The 'least f*cked up' ones probably being Inara and Tara Maclay (and even she was a little 'off'... besides being gay which would have voided herself off of any list I'd have produced for not having a romantic component possible).  Oh, and just so I'm clear: I think about 99% of his 'men-folk' are generally too f*cked in the head, too; I don't think he is sexist in that.  ;)

I think "geek" is a more apt term, personally, but the meanings of each seem to be rapidly oscillating. (See, if I were nerdy, I would have alluded to some molecule or isotope that's known for rapid oscillation between states.) I think of "geek" as "pop-culture nerd."

Actually, you're still missing my point, which was 'romance' is an emotionally intimate relationship that may have a potential sexual component to it: it contains the possibility of sex; but simply 'wanting to bone' doesn't have a relationship or a romantic component to it, and doesn't even imply that one wants a relationship outside of two mucous membranes rubbing on each-other.  They are not interchangeable words: 'boning' is a MUCH more limited experience... and [which does not apply to what you or necessarily anyone else here wrote] thinking that sex is all there is, is a very limited way of thinking of male-female (or male-male, female-female if one goes that way) relationships.

"The whole point of romance is window dressing for coitus," is a very limited biological imperative viewpoint.  There are other ways of looking at interactions between people (and, possibly, a majority of warm-blooded animals), and romance includes the need for companionship, which is just as 'imperative' as reproduction.  Or else every 'romance' would END once the people involved had screwed.


The OED just says infatuation, if we're going by dictionary definitions. :)

And, yes, if you'd read the two posts I wrote (one on this page, (http://forum.rifftrax.com/index.php?topic=23586.msg699704#msg699704) the other on the previous one (http://forum.rifftrax.com/index.php?topic=23586.msg699729#msg699729)), you'd see that I quoted both definitions in both posts, [and said that I got them from the online Webster's], both 'crush' (http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/crush), AND the definition of 'infatuation' (http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/infatuation) which is, "to inspire with a foolish or extravagant love or admiration".

'Extravagant love or admiration' is not equal to 'boning' or 'coitus'.  'Boning' is an isolated sex act (or group of them) and doesn't contain 'extravagant love' or 'admiration'.  But 'extravagant love' can potentially lead to intercourse.  The one can contain the other, but not vice-verca.

#10 Kara “Starbuck” Thrace
   
(http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_l41831C1141qc59p4o1_500.png)
   
(54 Points) 4 of 24 Lists - Highest Ranking - #1 RoninFox
   
Appeal:

War queen in the skies above the skies!  Too much?  Uh, good in a Viper and in the sack.

Bio:
Described as "one of television's most complex, ever-evolving characters", the role of Starbuck changed over the run of the series. According to Sackhoff, Starbuck originally "didn't value her own life," inspiring her readiness to die for her shipmates. By the end of the series, however, she is prepared to sacrifice herself for others because of her respect for all life. The character's physical appearance is based on Sackhoff's perception of Starbuck as an extremely fit, hard-drinking individual. "I didn't want Starbuck to be completely ripped," said Sackhoff. "This is a girl who drinks most of her calories."

Kara Thrace bears some parallels to the original 1978 Starbuck character: both are portrayed as hot-headed and cocky fighter pilots, considered the best in the fleet, but with a tendency to challenge authorities and get into trouble. Both are avid gamblers and enjoy drinking, smoking cigars, and sex. Both have crashed and been marooned on a deserted planet, using a downed Cylon ship to make an escape. Both are best friends with Apollo. Kara had a relationship with Apollo's late brother Zak (mirroring the original Starbuck's on-and-off relationship with Apollo's sister Athena), affecting her relationship to Apollo and Zak's father, William Adama.

However, the two characters differ both in their gender – complicating Kara Thrace's relationships with other characters, notably Apollo – as well as their outward appearance: whereas the original Starbuck, played by Dirk Benedict, was a slick, well-groomed ladies' man, Kara appears more rugged and grimy. USA Today described her as "the broken warrior, a young, idealistic soldier who has been fighting for all the right reasons, but has lost something along the way."

I've never watched Battlestar Galactica, but Katee Sackhoff was the best thing about the short lived Bionic Woman series. She has a screen presence that drew me in, even though she was playing the villian.

As far as the what defines a "crush" - Until they issue federally mandated rules on such matters, I think an individual can define it however they want.  It's not like any of this really matters. It's all for shits and giggles, right?  ;)

Catching up again.

#23 Rogue

Best part about watching the X-Men cartoon in the 90s.  Fully agree with the "forbidden fruit" theory, and the accent was hot as hell.

I like a woman with green eyes.  And everything else.
#21 She-Hulk

Not on my list, but I get the feeling if I read her comics more she would have been.  First time I really ever noticed her was a Facebook post of this little incident.

Let's fool around.
   
#18 Harley Quinn
   

To me, not only is the character sexy and funny, she's a very sympathetic character.  Even at her worst, you end up feeling for her because she's trapped in an abusive relationship.  One of the things I hated the most about when the Batman Animated Series made the transition to the last season being "Batman Superman Adventures" is that they backtracked her storyline.  She started just as the Joker's girl, got fleshed out as a character, eventually had a couple episodes where she was trying to reform and find her own identity away from the Joker, and just when it seemed like she was about to succeed and be a more heroic character...she's in the first episode of B/S Adventures kidnapping Bruce Wayne.  I'm glad I could find some comics Paul Dini wrote that picked up the slack on the road to recovery trail.

Oh, and the Arkham Asylum/Arkham City redesign of her?  Downright evil in all the right ways.

Cap'n...

True: This is all in 'fun'.

The only point I was making in my initial post here was on how I would have defined it.  Others jumped on that and misrepresented what I said, so I clarified.

Definitions of words are, actually, governed by 'common usage' which is what ends up in dictionaries.  Among themselves, people can say that a cow is a kitty cat for all I care (...good luck when it curls up on their lap, though).  But for people to communicate in a social setting, if there is no agreement on what words mean, then communication - as a whole - is not possible, or is meaningless, or (as seems to have been happening here) results in unnecessary conflict.

And for this LoC: if people weren't using the same meaning for the term when voting, then the 'overlap' of one person's votes with another - the entire 'results' of the poll - are meaningless, because the people's definitions for why any given person was on their list didn't mean the same thing.  [I have had WAY too many classes is 'how to create valid tests and do valid research' in grad school!  ;)  (Plus, being well past my limits, I tend to get concrete in how I respond to things (i.e. currently I'm responding to everything exactly at face value).)]

GH, I know you were trying to smooth things over here, and I applaud you for that.  [None of my response in this post contains irritation, or anything other than a desire to share ideas.]


...I had two horses and a mouse on my list for crap's sake (two of which have already make it).

With all of the non-humans, I generally thought of them as "if I were that species"-type things.  Not that someone wanted - as a human - to romance a PonyTM or mouse.  :)

Appeal:

No-nonsense, a pure warrior.

Bio:
Bastila Shan was a Human female who served as a Jedi Knightduring the Jedi Civil War. Born on the planet Talravin to Helena Shanand a treasure hunter, her mother gave her up to the Jedi Order, believing that their lifestyle of travel and exertions was not suitable for the young Shan. Shan was found to have an exceptional gift with aForce power known as battle meditation; which increased her allies' morale while demoralizing her enemies. Shan sided with the Jedi Council when the Jedi Knights Revan and Malak rebelled against the Council and joined the Galactic Republic in its war against the invading Mandalorian Neo-Crusaders.

One year after the final battle of the Mandalorian Wars, Revan returned from the Unknown Regions as the new Dark Lord of the Sith, with Malak as his apprentice, at the head of a new Sith Empire. Two years into the Jedi Civil War, Shan was the leader of a Jedi strike team sent to capture Darth Revan and Darth Malak. When her team boarded Revan's vessel, they managed to corner the Dark Lord on the bridge. Before they could engage Revan in combat, Malak, who was separated from his Master during the battle, betrayed Revan by ordering the guns of his flagship Leviathan to fire on Revan's vessel in an attempt to destroy both the Jedi and Revan.
However, Shan survived and managed to use the Force to stabilize Revan, who was near death. This act created a bond between the two and Shan brought the comatose Revan to the Jedi Council. Both the Council and Shan came up with a plan and temporarily erased Revan's memories, reprogramming Revan with an identity of a soldierloyal to the Republic. The Council hoped that Shan, through her bond with Revan, would be able to coerce Revan into revealing the location of the Rakatan space station called the Star Forge, which was now under the new Dark Lord Darth Malak's control.

In the final year of the war, Shan's Republic warship Endar Spire wasambushed and attacked by Malak's fleet above the Outer Rim planet Taris. She managed to flee the ship aboard one of its escape pods, assisted by Republic commander Carth Onasi. Shortly after her pod reached the surface, Shan was captured by a swoop gang known as the Black Vulkars. After Revan and Onasi landed on Taris, they managed to track down and rescue Shan. She, Revan, and their companions teamed up with the MandalorianCanderous Ordo, managing to steal both the launch codes necessary to escape Taris and the Exchange crime lord Davik Kang's light freighter Ebon Hawk. Shan and her companions escaped during the Sith's bombardment of Taris, and headed to Dantooine, where a Jedi Enclave was located.

After Shan met with the Dantooine Jedi Council, they began retraining Revan in the Jedi ways. After finding a Rakatan Star Map in the burial mounds near the Enclave, the Council tasked Shan, Revan, and their companions with finding the Star Forge. During their travels, Shan watched Revan closely to ensure that he did not fall to thedark side. Shan eventually fell in love with Revan, who, despite his past, was able to remain true to the Jedi Code. After Revan found a fourth Star Map—which was necessary to locate the Star Forge—Shan was captured by Malak and fell to the dark side after a week of torture at her new Sith Master's hands.

However, Revan eventually confronted Shan aboard the Star Forge and she was redeemed from the darkness to which she had succumbed. To prove her reclaimed faith, Shan aided the Republic in the Battle of Rakata Primethrough means of her battle meditation. Revan then vanquished Malak, and the Republic fleet successfully destroyed the Star Forge, routing the Sith forces. Sometime after this, Shan and Revan married, and began a new life together. However, within the next two years, Revan left for the Unknown Regions, seeking to eliminate ahidden Sith threat that Revan had discovered during his time as the Dark Lord. He left all whom he cared for behind, including Shan due to her pregnancy, as he did not wish to put their child's life in danger. She went on to survive the era of strife that followed the Jedi Civil War.

(58 Points) 7 of 24 Lists - Highest Ranking - #3 Darth Geek
   
Appeal:

Sultry, breathy and is actually telling the truth when she says “I want a man who makes me laugh.”

Bio:
Jessica Rabbit is Roger's human Toon wife in Who Framed Roger Rabbit. In the book, she was an immoral, up-and-coming star and former comic character over whom her estranged husband (comic strip star Roger Rabbit) became obsessed. She is re-imagined in the film as a sultry, but moral, cartoon singer at a Los Angeles supper club called The Ink and Paint Club. She is one of several suspects in the framing of her husband, who is a famous cartoon star. She is voiced by Kathleen Turner. Amy Irving was cast to sing "Why Don't You Do Right?" (a blues song made famous by Peggy Lee) for Jessica's first scene in the movie.

Writer Gary K. Wolf had based Jessica primarily on the cartoon character Red of Tex Avery's Red Hot Riding Hood. According to animation director Richard Williams, other inspirations are Lauren Bacall, Rita Hayworth in Gilda (1946), and Veronica Lake (noted for her famous "Peek-A-Boo" hairstyle). Jessica is one of the most famous sex symbols on the animated screen. She claims to Eddie Valiant, "I'm not bad, I'm just drawn that way," which has become a popular quote. She deeply loves her husband Roger, claiming that he makes her laugh and that he makes a more fitting husband than Goofy. She is shown to have few of the comedic cartoon antics typical of other toons. One such example was her cleavage having a hammerspace ability as one of the weasels searched her (with obvious perverted intent) for Marvin Acme's last will and testament, only to comically get his hand caught in a bear trap and Valiant commenting on the event with a clever pun ("Nice booby trap"). Another could be her mild wild take seeing Judge Doom's scheme involving the Dip, while a subtle effect was added by animator Russell Hall: The bounce of Jessica's bosom was reversed from that of a real woman so that it would bounce up when a real woman's breasts bounce down and vice versa.

She did well on my list, and as has been mentioned before with other characters, voice had a LOT to do with it.  Never knew who sang for her before, but she was chosen well.

Also, good background info there.  I remember being really surprised at all the differences between the original book and the movie.  Basically the only things they have in common are the fact that toons exist, they live in a place called Toontown, and characters with the same names are in both.

Oh, and one line from Baby Herman was only changed slightly.

One of the only examples I know of where the movie is far better than the book.

Appeal:
   
Being able to stand the sixth Doctor.  Also, physically attractive.
   
Bio:
She first appears in the Fifth Doctor serial Planet of Fire, in which she encounters the Doctor and Turlough on the island of Lanzarote. After an encounter with the Master and the shapechanging android Kamelion (who disguises himself as her stepfather, Professor Howard Foster), Peri asks to join the Fifth Doctor on his travels, while Turlough departs to return to his home planet of Trion.
Peri is present when the Fifth Doctor regenerates into the Sixth at the end of The Caves of Androzani and continues to travel with him, despite the fact that one of the first things the temporarily unstable Sixth Doctor does is try to strangle her (The Twin Dilemma).

Peri is a bright, spirited young woman in her early twenties, who travels with the Doctor because, like many of his companions, she wants to see the universe. Although she shares a more abrasive relationship with the Sixth Doctor, there is an undercurrent of affection in their verbal sparring.

Peri travels with the Doctor for an undisclosed period of time; some sources say she travels with him for mere months, while others say years. Between the events of Revelation of the Daleks and the season-long story The Trial of a Time Lord, the character is shown to have matured somewhat (coinciding with an 18-month production break between the two stories) and her relationship with the Doctor is less combative.

In the second segment of the Trial story arc, Mindwarp, Peri is abducted by a arthropod-like creature named Kiv, who apparently transplants his brain into her body. Soon after, the Doctor is led to believe that Peri is dead, and is severely distressed by this. It is later revealed at the end of The Ultimate Foe (the fourth segment of the arc) that the evidence of Peri's death was faked by the Valeyard. Peri has, in fact, survived, presumably recovered from Kiv's transplant (if it ever actually occurred), and married King Yrcanos of Thoros Alpha, a warrior king who had assisted the Doctor and Peri during the Mindwarp incident. It is not known what happens to Peri after she marries Yrcanos.

Peri was one of the more controversial companions, with some critics complaining about the motivation for adding a character who spent much of her time on screen wearing revealing outfits. Series producer John Nathan-Turner admitted that Peri was created to add sex appeal to the series. Similar criticisms had been leveled against the character of Leela nearly a decade earlier. Beginning with the story Timelash, and continuing through the Trial season, Peri's mode of dress became more conservative.

Bio:
Romana, short for Romanadvoratrelundar, is a fictional character in the long-running British science fiction television series Doctor Who. A Time Lady from the planet Gallifrey, she is a companion to the Fourth Doctor.

As a Time Lady, Romana is able to regenerate, having had two on-screen incarnations with somewhat different personalities (dubbedRomana I and Romana II by fans). Romana I was played by Mary Tamm from 1978 to 1979. When Tamm chose not to sign on for a second season, the part was recast. Romana II was played by Lalla Ward from 1979 to 1981 regularly and then again in 1983 and 1993 as a guest.

Romana is one of only two members of the Doctor's own race to travel with him in the original television series. The other is Susan Foreman, the Doctor's granddaughter, although Susan is never explicitly identified as a Time Lady.

The White Guardian originally assigns Romana to assist the Doctor during the quest for the Key to Time, a series of linked serials which constitute the whole of Season 16 (1978–79). Romana first appears in The Ribos Operation, and was intended as a contrast to her predecessor, the savage Leela. Romana is initially haughty and somewhat arrogant, looking down on the Doctor (whom she considers to be her academic inferior) and responding to his initial resentment at her presence with icy put-downs. However, she soon gains an appreciation for the Doctor's experience and sense of adventure, and begins to respect him as a teacher.

Romana II enjoys a more intimate relationship with the Doctor than her predecessor, to the point that some fans have assumed a romantic relationship with the Doctor. Although a relationship was never explicitly shown or intended by the writers, many fans have found the signs of a romantic relationship particularly evident in the story City of Death, perhaps reflecting the real-life romance between Tom Baker and Lalla Ward which blossomed during the production of that story, leading to their brief marriage. In many ways, she is the companion most alike her Doctor - besides being of the same race and comparable intelligence, she occasionally mimics his sense of style, wields her own sonic screwdriver and can occasionally get the better of him in moments of banter and more practical situations. As her practical experience develops, she also becomes more assured and capable in the situations she encounters.

Bio:
Catwoman is a fictional character associated with DC Comics' Batman franchise. Historically a supervillain, the character was created by Bill Finger and Bob Kane, partially inspired by Kane's cousin, Ruth Steel. Kane, a frequent movie goer, also mentioned that Jean Harlow was a model for the design.

The original and most widely known Catwoman, Selina Kyle, first appears in Batman #1 (Spring 1940) in which she is known as The Cat. She is an adversary of Batman, known for having a complex love-hate (often romantic) relationship with him. In her first appearance, she was a whip-carrying burglar with a taste for high-stake thefts. For many years Catwoman thrived, but from September 1954 to November 1966 she took an extended hiatus due to the newly developing Comics Code Authority in 1954. These issues involved the rules regarding the development and portrayal of female characters that were in violation of the Comics Code.

Since the 1990s, Catwoman has been featured in an eponymous series that cast her as an antihero rather than a supervillain. The character has been one of Batman's most enduring love interests. Many modern writers have also interpreted her activities and costumed identity as a response to a history of abuse.

A popular figure, Catwoman has been featured in most media adaptations related to Batman. Actresses Julie Newmar, Lee Meriwether, and Eartha Kitt introduced her to a large audience on the 1960s Batman television series and the 1966 Batman motion picture. Michelle Pfeiffer portrayed the character in 1992's Batman Returns. Halle Berry starred in a stand-alone Catwoman film in 2004, which was a box-office flop, and was not based on the Batman character. Anne Hathaway will portray Selina Kyle in Christopher Nolan's upcoming Batman film, The Dark Knight Rises.

Bio:
Willow Rosenberg is a fictional character created for the fantasy television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997–2003). She was developed by Joss Whedon and portrayed throughout the TV series by Alyson Hannigan. Willow plays an integral role within the inner circle of friends—called the Scooby Gang—who support Buffy Summers, a teenager gifted with superhuman powers to defeat vampires, demons, and other evil in the fictional town of Sunnydale. The series begins as Buffy, Willow, and their friend Xander are in 10th grade and Willow is a shy and nerdy girl with little confidence. She has inherent magical abilities and begins to study witchcraft; as the series progresses, Willow becomes more sure of herself and her magical powers become significant if inconsistent. Her dependence on magic becomes so consuming that it develops into a dark force that takes her on a redemptive journey in a major story arc when she becomes the sixth season's main villain, threatening to destroy the world in a fit of grief and rage.

The Buffy series became extremely popular and earned a devoted fanbase; Willow's intelligence, shy nature, and vulnerability often resounded strongly with viewers in early seasons. Of the core characters, Willow changes the most, becoming a complex portrayal of a woman whose powers force her to seek balance between what is best for the people she loves and what she is capable of doing. Her character stood out as a positive portrayal of a Jewish woman and at the height of her popularity, she fell in love with another woman, a witch named Tara Maclay. They became one of the first lesbian couples on U.S. television and one of the most positive relationships of the series. Willow appears in every Buffy episode (making her the only character besides Buffy herself to do so), is featured in three episodes of the spinoff Angel, an animated series and video game—both of which use Hannigan's voice, and the comic Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Eight (2007–2011), which uses Hannigan's likeness and continues Willow's storyline following the television series.

"The whole point of romance is window dressing for coitus," is a very limited biological imperative viewpoint.
No, it's not, evidently you've not seen how complex window dressing can be.

More and more we learn that the ultimate reason for life is the propagation of it and, in most species, that is down to sex. You can gripe about that all you like but everything, from companionship and indeed any other achievement is ultimately in the service of he continuance of the genetic material which forms one's body.

There's nothing wrong with that, but ultimately that is what it's for. Sorry if that makes you view it in a negative light, personally, I think that's awesome.  

And Lucas, in none of your posts did you give the definition from the OED, I did. When defining words I don't use Webster I use the OED. My point being that there might be a transatlantic divide here; apparently Americans have a more nuanced meaning for "Crush". I'm American by choice, but culturally I'm still British.

#3 Holly Golightly

(69 Points) 3 of 24 Lists - Highest Ranking - #2 George Harrison
   
Appeal:
   
Flighty, flirty free spirit.  The original manic pixie girl before it became a much hated trope.
   
Bio:
Breakfast at Tiffany's is a novella by Truman Capote published in 1958. The main character, Holly Golightly, is one of Capote's best-known creations and an American cultural icon.

In autumn 1943, the unnamed narrator becomes friends with Holly Golightly, who calls him "Fred", after her older brother. The two are both tenants in a brownstone apartment in Manhattan's Upper East Side. Holly (age 18-19) is a country girl turned New York café society girl. As such, she has no job and lives by socializing with wealthy men, who take her to clubs and restaurants, and give her money and expensive presents; she hopes to marry one of them. According to Capote, Golightly is not a prostitute but an "American geisha."

Holly likes to stun people with carefully selected tidbits from her personal life or her outspoken viewpoints on various topics. Over the next year, she slowly reveals herself to the narrator, who finds himself fascinated by her curious lifestyle. In the end, Holly fears that she will never know what is really hers until after she has thrown it away. Their relationship ends in autumn 1944.

Hepburn's portrayal of Holly Golightly in the film adaptation as the naïve, eccentric café society girl is generally considered to be the actress' most memorable and identifiable role. She herself regarded it as one of her most challenging roles, since she was an introvert required to play an extrovert. Hepburn's performance of "Moon River" helped composer Henry Mancini and lyricist Johnny Mercer win an Oscar for Best Song.

#2 Inara Serra
   
(http://www.firefly.whedonsworld.co.uk/pix/char/main/inara/inara03.jpg)

(75 Points) 5 of 24 Lists - Highest Ranking - #4 Pak Man
   
Appeal:
   
Sensual, kind, gentle and for hire.
   
Bio:
Inara Serra was played by Morena Baccarin. Born in the late 25th century on Sihnon, Inara is a Companion, a high-society courtesan licensed by the Union of Allied Planets (the "Alliance"). In Alliance society, Companions are part of the social elite, often accompanying the wealthy and powerful. There is considerable ritual and ceremony surrounding their services, which appear to extend beyond sex to nurturing psychological and emotional well-being. Actress Rebecca Gayheart was initially hired to play the part of Inara but was fired after only one day of filming. Joss Whedon said that there was a lack of chemistry between her and the rest of the cast. Morena Baccarin filmed her first scene the very day she was accepted for the role.

As of the end of the original Firefly series, most of what is known about Companions is derived from Inara herself and incidental discussions with and about other Companions and Companion-trained individuals. These sources suggest that Companion training includes social and physical grace, at least some performing arts, and psychology. Companions choose their own customers, and can have ungracious customers banned from any Companionship. Inara has a number of frequent clients throughout the Allied worlds, and takes both male and female clients, although most of her clients are male.

Inara, a Buddhist, was a rising member of Companion House Madrassa when she suddenly and inexplicably left to travel the outer rim. She has suggested that she "wanted to see the universe", although it is strongly hinted that she had other reasons. Less than a year before the events of the pilot episode, she leased one of Serenity's shuttles for transportation, living space, and workspace, providing her with some mobility. Though earning Mal's disfavor initially by stating that she supported unification of the Alliance and the Independents (in a flashback in "Out of Gas"), she and Mal have developed an unacknowledged attraction to each other which they resist, ostensibly for business reasons, and is expressed in the form of jesting and sometimes hurtful bickering. Mal constantly insults her career, but takes offense when others do so, going so far as to punch a client who did so. Mal tells Inara, "I may not respect your job, but he didn't respect you."

Inara appears to be at least somewhat adept at swordplay ("Shindig"). In the movie Serenity, it is shown that she also may have been trained somewhat in the martial arts, and is skilled with a bow and arrow, apparently preferring them over firearms. In a proposed extended version of a scene from Serenity, in Inara's Companion montage, she was to be seen teaching the girls how to use the bow, but this idea was dropped, claiming that she appeared too much like "Wonder Woman".

A subplot for Inara was hinted at throughout the series. Joss Whedon explained in the DVD audio commentary for the pilot episode that the syringe Inara takes out during the Reaver encounter is not for suicide. Second, when the ship is disabled in the episode "Out of Gas," Simon said, "I don't want to die [on this ship]," to which Inara replied, "I don't want to die at all." In "Heart of Gold", Nandi remarks that she did not age at all. The secret was apparently revealed in a panel at 2008's DragonCon; Morena Baccarin confirmed that Inara was dying of a terminal illness.

#1 Kaylee Frye
   
(http://img.getglue.com/topics/firefly/kaylee_frye/normal.jpg)

   
(107 Points) 6 of 24 Lists - Highest Ranking - #1 Lassieface
   
Appeal:
   
Fun-loving, sweet, friendly and clearly the person you want to spend time with in a tin can floating through a see of black vacuum.
   
Bio:
Kaywinnit Lee "Kaylee" Frye was portrayed by Jewel Staite. Kaylee has exceptional mechanical aptitude, despite her lack of formal training, and serves as ship's mechanic onSerenity. Kaylee is considered by the crew to be exceptionally sweet and chipper, the type who maintains a bright and positive attitude even when others are feeling low. Jewel Staite explains Kaylee's character as being wholesome, sweet, and "completely genuine in that sweetness", adding "She loves being on that ship. She loves all of those people. And she's the only one who loves all of them incredibly genuinely." Staite told Interview magazine, "She's kind of a floozy who wears her heart on her sleeve." Kaylee has shown an affinity for strawberries. Despite her mechanical aptitude which allows Kaylee to fix just about anything, she has a desire for girlish things and is annoyed when Mal does not see that she is a woman as well as a mechanic. Although most notable in the episode "Shindig"—when he criticized her desire to purchase an elaborate dress on the grounds that she would have no opportunity to wear it in her job—this recurs throughout the series.

The background of the character is revealed in the episode "Out of Gas", showing her joining the crew of Serenity. The ship's captain, Malcolm Reynolds, interrupted her and Bester, the ship's mechanic at the time, having sex in Serenity's engine room. However, when Bester incorrectly informed Mal that the ship could not be fixed, Kaylee quickly proved him wrong by diagnosing the problem and repairing the grounded Serenity virtually on the spot. Impressed with her mechanical ability, Mal immediately offered her Bester's job. Kaylee happily accepted, and left her family (and Bester) behind to join the crew.

Wow! This is a huge surprise. Way to go, Harrison (and other mystery voter)! I had Holly at #4. There will never be a better or more likable manic pixie girl in my opinion. Bush Baby Lady's act ain't got nothin' on this. Hepburn looks consistently amazing in Breakfast at Tiffany's. She'll makes me swoon. Just absolutely adorable. While I both love and hate her, ultimately she is a fantastic character that I have a pretty strong connection with.

Anyway, this is a very pleasant little bonus. I had four on the list , and they just happened to be my top four. Pretty cool.


I'd like to take her where we cannot stand.

Johnny Unusual, excellent job on the LoC!  I especially loved the tag/intro lines you came up with for the different people (for the ones I recognized especially, and I could guess how clever the others were after reading some of their stats).

Ah, yes... Kaylee.  Another of the 'least f'd up' Whedon females (that I forgot earlier when commenting on same).


[[cut out my rather lengthy post]]

You have no idea how tempted I was to cut up one of your posts in a quote with the response "so you want to bone a dictionary?"

I thought better of it, and I'm lazy.

 :D   :D  '*grumble* Fuckin' words!'  would take on a whole new meaning.   :D


[[EDIT for response:  Skipped the argument that had already taken up too much of the thread.  Because I'm literally tired of it (or, for grammar's sake, possibly that should read, 'tired from it').]]

And Lucas, in none of your posts did you give the definition from the OED, I did.

I never said I'd given the OED definition; as a matter of fact I clearly stated I'd given the Webster's ones [and I also included links to them in my third post].  It seems you may need to read what people write more carefully (at least with the things you respond to with what reads as condescension), as something you responded to in the content of my three posts on this topic seems to demonstrate that you misread some part of what you commented on in those posts on the horse-beaten topic in this thread.  To misquote someone, and then to denigrate the person for what you've misrepresented, does not add to the possible value of your arguments, it detracts from it.

Wow... after this group of interchanges I can see why people are getting sick of coming to the boards here and are leaving.

I have to say, I'm pretty disappointed Rapunzel (my #1) didn't make the list. I thought for sure there would be multiple Disney characters.

I am, however, happy to see Lum. And Nausicaa got an Honorable Mention so that's good too.

1 Rapunzel, from Tangled. She's cute, she's charming, she runs around bare foot, and she's voiced by Mandy Moore... But most importantly, I absolutely LOVE really long hair on women. If I could be with any fictional girl, she would be it, no question. (Shame her hair gets cut at the end)
2 Lum, from Urusei Yatsura. I was really into this show back in college. The show seems stupid now, but I have to admit to having a long standing crush on Lum.
3 James Bond (particularly the Daniel Craig and Sean Connery versions). Let's face it, even I think he's hot, and I'm a straight guy.

4 Lady Jessica (Atreides), from Dune. She's a badass in the book, and she's quite gorgeous in the David Lynch movie. Either way, I really like her.
5 Amalthea, aka the unicorn from The Last Unicorn, in human form. Heavenly long platinum hair... among other qualities I'm sure.
6 Mrs. Brisby/Frisby, from the Secret of NIMH/Mrs Frisby and the Rats of NIMH. Not so much a crush as it is admiration. Granted, she's a mouse... but she's awesome. (RIP Elizabeth Hartman)
7 Jemima from Cats (the movie version mainly, though I have seen this live, and I used to own the soundtrack until I lost the CDs). Man she was cute. Too bad the actress doesn't do her own singing in the movie.
8 Nausicaa, from Nausicaa of the Valley of Wind. The first movie I ever watched in straight Japanese, and still my favorite Studio Ghibli movie.
9 Rydia, from Final Fantasy 4 (US FF2). Marginally creepy since you first meet her as a little girl... However she's most definitely adult when you meet her again.
10 Sheen, from Piers Anthony's Apprentice Adept novels. She was easily my favorite of the "love interests" in those books. Who cares that she's an android...
11 Kula, from the King of Fighters games. Again, it's the long hair thing. Plus I really like the cold.
12 Fluttershy, from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. Hey, I like shy girls and I like animation. DON'T JUDGE ME!
13 Parasoul, from Skullgirls. And if anyone else votes for her (or for that matter, anyone from Skullgirls), I will buy a hat and eat it.
14 Chun-Li. My Dad used to comment "Is this that game with the girl who spins upside down?" Yes, one of about twenty...
15 Indiana Jones
16 Esmerelda, from The Huntchback of Notre Dame
17 Jessica Rabbit                
18 Ariel, from The Little Mermaid
19 Hermione Granger

20 Aurora, from Sleeping Beauty
21 Lara Croft
22 Belle, from Beauty and the Beast
23 Seven of Nine
24 Neytiri
25 Aphrodite, of Greek mythology fame. Particularly the Ursula Andress version in the original Clash of the Titans. Too bad all her lines were cut....

Johnny, you did a great job, but I would have liked some honorary mentions for the males. How many males were on the list total?

Only 5.  And say what you will, a lot of the guys pitched in too (explains how Brock made it on the list.  Women want him, men want to be him).

I was a little disappointed that Batman was edged off the list.  I think that like Catwoman, there are enough incarnations that there's something for everyone.

My favourite Catwomen: Eartha Kitt and any time where she's presented as sensual, but not a complete sexpot.  I also love when Darwyn Cooke draws her: it's a little more low key.  I always imagine her being a bit of a noire movie femme fatale of old: it's not just her looks that are attractive, but her magnetic and dangerous personality.

Best Batman: Kevin Conroy.  By far.  Don't get me wrong, Adam West is great, but Conroy distills Batman down to his essence.  Heck, his Batman even has a bit of a sense of humour at times.  Too speak perhaps with an assumption of authority: Mark Hamill is my favourite Joker, but Kevin Conroy IS Batman.

Jessica Rabbit was an interesting case.  She was very popular, but not too high on people's lists.  I guess on Darth Geek's, but he had a short list worth less points.

Wow... after this group of interchanges I can see why people are getting sick of coming to the boards here and are leaving.

I'm not denigrating you. I'm saying I'm not using the same dictionary as you.

You are using Webster's, I'm using the Oxford English Dictionary. In the Oxford English Dictionary there is only the definition I used not the more expansive one you keep quoting.

I never use Webster's, ever.

As far as reading more carefully, physician, heal thyself, here is my point again:

When defining words I don't use Webster I use the OED. My point being that there might be a transatlantic divide here; apparently Americans have a more nuanced meaning for "Crush". I'm American by choice, but culturally I'm still British.

Which is why, in my first post about definitions I made a point to mention that I was using a different dictionary.

Seline from Underworld has been my mad crush for the past few years. I love her to death, love kick-ass women overall and she's my #1.

Holly Golightly was my crush in my 20s. I remember the first time seeing that film and how I just adored her. Yeah she could be a pain, but she was so damn fun (and fashionable). I still think Audrey sang Moon River better than anyone, she didn't have a cannon for a voice but brought so much beautiful melancholy to the tune.

I don't know how many oldsters we have on board, but for guys of a certain age, Marcia Brady was a major heartbreaker. She was my pre-teen crush. Only reason I'd watched that damn show was to see Marcia, Marcia, Marcia!

7.   Regina, the Bee girl from the Outer Limits episode “ZZZZZ”

9.   Caitlin Fairchild from Gen 13
10.   Alice, Resident Evil movies
11.   Inara from Firefly
12.   Gwen Stacy from Spider-Man

I never said I'd given the OED definition; as a matter of fact I clearly stated I'd given the Webster's ones [and I also included links to them in my third post].  It seems you may need to read what people write more carefully (at least with the things you respond to with what reads as condescension), as something you responded to in the content of my three posts on this topic seems to demonstrate that you misread some part of what you commented on in those posts on the horse-beaten topic in this thread.  To misquote someone, and then to denigrate the person for what you've misrepresented, does not add to the possible value of your arguments, it detracts from it


Wow... after this group of interchanges I can see why people are getting sick of coming to the boards here and are leaving.

I'm not denigrating you. I'm saying I'm not using the same dictionary as you.

You are using Webster's, I'm using the Oxford English Dictionary. In the Oxford English Dictionary there is only the definition I used not the more expansive one you keep quoting.

I never use Webster's, ever.

As far as reading more carefully, physician, heal thyself, here is my point again:

When defining words I don't use Webster I use the OED. My point being that there might be a transatlantic divide here; apparently Americans have a more nuanced meaning for "Crush". I'm American by choice, but culturally I'm still British.

Which is why, in my first post about definitions I made a point to mention that I was using a different dictionary.

To the part of your post that I changed to red: I did not misread what you posted.  I knew you were using a different dictionary.  And I knew why.  ["As far as reading more carefully, physician, heal thyself," is also condescending, by the way.  Particularly since I did not say anything to the contrary of the point you referred me back to.  I was commenting on a particular sentence you posted that you conveniently excluded from what you quoted above.]


My whole point has been "sex does not equal a romantic relationship".  You ignored that core point in your responses.  I was talking very specifically.  From that, you then went diagonally to "The whole point of romance is window dressing for coitus."  MY mistake in all this has been to 'follow your lead', and comment on what you said, rather than to stick to the point I was making: the one you ignored.  Even from a biological imperative standpoint, and act of sexual intercourse STILL doesn't equal a romantic relationship.  One may be 'designed' to lead to the other in that viewpoint, but they are still not interchangeable.  That has always been my point: the two aren't the same.


I did find it interesting that in this post where you are saying that you weren't denigrating in your response, that you cut out the single line I quoted of yours that I was responding to, while including my whole comment about it.  To reiterate, what my above response was to, was this:
And Lucas, in none of your posts did you give the definition from the OED, I did.
Whether it was your intention or not, that phrasing says, "Lucas, you are mistaken in what you said about your giving the OED definition."  That says, basically, "you are confused and mistaken," which results in the person appearing 'less than'.  My response far above was that I had not said that in the first place... and that connection - between your comment and mine - was what you ignored when you responded here.

I was a bit surprised that after so many other Firefly characters showed up, Zoe didn't.  Need I quote Wash himself.  "Have you ever been...with a warrior woman?"

Also, the Venture Bros character I mentioned that I should have included...Dr. Girlfriend/Dr. Mrs. The Monarch.  In that case, forget the voice, everything else is hot.  The one VB character I did include, Triana, is pretty much there because she IS a girl I had a crush on in high school...almost exactly.  Her style, her makeup, her personality, her voice, all incredibly close.

Alrighty, let's get this list down:

1. Rocko (Rocko’s Modern Life)
2. Remy (Ratatouille)
3. Fluttershy (My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic)
4. Fenchurch (So Long, and Thanks for all the Fish)
5. Pinkie Pie (My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic)
6. Danny (Cats Don’t Dance)
7. Basil (The Great Mouse Detective)
8. Miss Bianca (The Rescuers)
9. Courage (Courage the Cowardly Dog)
10. Peter Puppy (Earthworm Jim)
11. Tails (Sonic the Hedgehog)
12. Mrs. Brisby (The Secret of NIMH)
13. WALL-E (WALL-E)
14. Robin Hood (Robin Hood… yes, the Disney one)
15. Balto (Balto)
16. King Kazma (Summer Wars)
17. Rebecca Chambers (Resident Evil 0)
18. Lili (Psychonauts)
19. Kiki (Kiki’s Delivery Service)
20. Amy (Futurama)
21. Death (Sandman)
22. Toothless (How to Train Your Dragon)
23. Rigby (Regular Show)
24. Jessica Rabbit (Who Framed Roger Rabbit)
25. Flaky (Happy Tree Friends)

As per usual LucasM said it way better than I ever could, but it should be noted that I have no real interest in being intimate with anyone on this list (well, almost anyone). My definition of crush here is more one for someone I'd like to be really close to in a romantic, if non-boning, way. If that makes any sort of sense. My list of Fictional Folks I'd Like To Get Down With is something else entirely, and not something any of you want to see (trust me; it can't be unseen) :P

Eowyn - 26 Points (2 lists, #9 D.B. Barnes)
I'm a little surprised she didn't make the list. This was the one remaining list item from mine that I thought was going to sneak in. Turned out it was Holly Golightly that sneaked on instead. I'll take it!

Faye Valentine - 24 Points (2 lists, #9 RoninFox)
Amy Wong - 23 Points (4 Lists, #8 Darth Geek)

Both made the early cut of my list, but I booted them eventually. I think there's just enough I don't like about their personalities I don't like.

Juliet Burke - 22 Points, 2 lists
Also a little surprised she didn't make it. Hey Quirk, if you're reading this, would you have included her if not for your real people ban? Or anyone else from LOST?  I see Charlotte made the top ten on lassie's list.

Amelie - 21 points (2 lists, #12 TeamRAD)
Nice to see I wasn't the only one who thought of her. I remember being so taken by the character. I find her fascinating and adorable as all hell.


Max Black (2 Broke Girls)
Too new to make my list, although I did include Daenerys from GoT, but hey, she's incredible. I am crushing pretty hard on Max. I love her whole sarcastic, cynical attitude, and she also has some really sweet moments. And as for the physical aspect, she rivals Christina Hendricks in the department of bombshell.


OBLIGATORY FORGOT AND FACEPALMED  :grr:

Dr. Girlfriend (Venture Bros.)
Goddammit. This was a major oversight on my part. I can't believe I forgot her. I fucking love Dr. Girlfriend! And and if I had to choose a hottest looking animated character, she would probably be it. Maybe if Ronin and myself had our heads more in the game, she would've made it.  :-[

Casey Klein (Party Down)
Another goddammit! Sorry, Im. I totally dropped the ball on this one. I LOVE Casey! See's just awesome and I feel like a heel for forgetting to include her. She might have even cracked my top-ten. It's great to see Lizzy Caplan on New Girl. She's so damn likable, and I don't think I've ever seen one of her characters I didn't immediately like.  Oh well, the brain freeze is no stranger to the L.O.C.

I considered including Penny. Maybe if she had been on more. It's amazing, though, I looked her up and saw that she only did thirteen episodes?!? That's incredible. It's a testament to her character that she made that big an impression on me in so few shows. Desmond and Penny, one of the great television love stories.

Great job, Johnny. Very interesting list. I was very surprised at some of the ones that didn't make the list that I was sure would. #4, #5 and #7 on my list in particular I was surprised didn't make it.

Top 25 fictional crushes:

1. Leela (Futurama)
2. Bonnie (Laurie Elliott, The Red Green Show) (I just looove me some nerdy women!)
3. Jessica Rabbit (Who Framed Roger Rabbit)
4. Cheetara (Thundercats 80s cartoon)
5. Gadget (Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers)
6. Elastigirl (The Incredibles)
7. April O'Neil (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon)(They couldn't find an actress with boobs in Hollywood to be in their big budget movie?! WTF?)
8. Amy Wong (Futurama)
9. Janine Melnitz (Ghostbusters 1&2, and cartoon)
10. Franky (Angelina Jolie in Sky Captain) (Sexy, but also capable and professional and useful. Everything that Polly Perkins was not. And only in the movie for a few minutes, presumably to remind us just how aweful Polly Perkins really was)
11. Violet (The Incredibles) (Okay, this isn't particularly sexual, but it still makes me feel like a VERY pervy old man. She's a great character, and I can tell that if I was in my teens, it would be a HUGE crush.)




Top characters that were supposed to be sexy but were just incredibly annoying:

White Queen (X-Men, all incarnations) (She made a good villain, but I was always annoyed with her arrogance, even when she was supposedly a "good guy")

Polly Perkins (Sky Captain) (I have already said multiple times how much I loath this character. Truly the worst written female character I have ever seen)

Willie Scott (Temple of Doom) (A useless, shrill, distraction of a female character. No redeeming qualities to her personality nor actions. For a long time held the top spot for "worst female characters" until Polly Perkins came along)

Daphne (Scooby Doo) (Yes, she was attractive, but she was just dumb and kinda useless. And when you are more useless that a stoner and his dog, that says something.)

Holly (Cool World) (She's a user, and that negates any actual emotional "crush" I would have on her.)

How the hell I forgot Holly Golightly I'll never get. Portrayed by the most beautiful woman that has ever walked the face of the earth, and an awesome character to boot? DAMMIT!

(By the way, on my scale Audrey Hepburn is a 15 out of 10. That's two Jenna Fischers. And that's sexy.)

I have to say, I agree with all three of these sentiments.

Also, I debated between Pinkie Pie and Fluttershy (my two favorites). I didn't want to have two MLP characters, especially when I also already had Amalthea (The Last Unicorn).

Even though she was one of the first tom come to mind when I thought about my list, I didn't think there was much of a chance in hell that somebody else would pick her. Not only did somebody else pick her, she made the countdown! Again, the cut of your jib...I like it.

18. Alice Cullen (Twilight)

I have to admit, I have a bit of a thing for Alice as well. To me, she's by far the most likable character in that whole mess, and quite the cutie to boot.

Yes Alice is who Bella should really have ended up with. I've said this before (http://asknickipedia.wordpress.com/2010/06/01/twihard-to-read-to-the-end/)

I've seen this GIF so many times. It's old to me. I even posted it on this very forum less than a month ago.

Nigel Thornberry is SOOOO passé.

I don't get either the .gif or the .jpg response.

The gif is what it is. The jpg was just making fun of DB's dismissal of the gif.

But it's presumably referencing something?

Basic snootiness, I assume.

The GIF is just Belle transforming into Nigel Thornberry, which Coragale posted in response to seeing Belle on Pak-Man's list. I bagged on the GIF as a reference to Coragle bagging on me for posting an old GIF in the Funny Pictures thread. Bill posted the snooty dude in response to me bagging on the stale GIF. Whether or not Bill was aware of what had transpired in the Funny Pictures thread, I'm not sure. Doesn't matter; picture of snooty guy is a humorous and appropriate response.

Did I miss anything?

I wasn't, and I think that covers it. All parties involved will be releasing a statement at 9, however, and a short Q&A panel will follow. If you still have questions, you may bring them up at that time.

I thought about putting Picard on my list, then realised I'd rather put him on my "top 25 characters you'd like as your father" list instead.

4. Asha Greyjoy (ASoI&F)
She'd so cut your balls off.

Cut 'em off? Nah. Grab 'em? Most definitely.

Much akin to Buffy, I dig cute, sassy, & tough women who eschew gender roles a ton.

[I like Marion.  But I'm not in like with her.

Oh, she'd be the ultimate drinking buddy.

6. Clementine Kruczynski (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind)
:highfive:

Even though she was one of the first tom come to mind when I thought about my list, I didn't think there was much of a chance in hell that somebody else would pick her. Not only did somebody else pick her, she made the countdown! Again, the cut of your jib...I like it.


Winslet really breathed some kind of life into that free-spirit, and w/o question one of the easiest times I've ever had falling for a fictional character.

18. Alice Cullen (Twilight)

I have to admit, I have a bit of a thing for Alice as well. To me, she's by far the most likable character in that whole mess, and quite the cutie to boot.


She's a total guilty pleasure of mine.   :)

Game for some Peri-action from "Attack of the Cybermen"?

:D

God, I love her.

She's aged beautifully too:

Wow!  I think she looks a LOT better now (more 'pretty' than 'cute').

Was that a Hardy Boys book?

Actually, it was a Hardly Boys.

"I've got a raging clue right now."


But seriously, remember the phantom list submitter that had the same IP address as another submitter? Tripe said he'd let the person address it, but I don't think anyone ever did.

The idea of rigging a LoC makes me chuckle. I don't see the point, but it's pretty funny.

Wait... Is it too late to rig the iRiff LoC?
