First one from my list! Yay, Kanna!

I know you can gleam this info from the write-ups, but could you possibly put what the character is from under the name?



Nah.  Then you won't have someone going "I don't know who that is" and then a fan saying "Well, let me tell you all about it..."

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!)

Plus, she's friends with Diabolik/Kalgan!

Captain Mal?  Swoon.

If I had joined soon enough to contribute to this list he would have been in my top five.

Sigh, Fred.

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?

Yes.

Wait, what's wrong with Cordelia? Kennedy wasn't a terribly well written character granted but Cordy had a nice arc over the two shows.

"I don't know who that is."

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.

Your good looks made me do a double take.  I think I heard my neck snap.

#35 Gwen Stacy


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

The sweet girl next door.  Plus she wants to take you out to “I Am Curious (Yellow)”!  Wow!  Too bad that’s the day you grew 2 extra pairs of arms.  Dang!

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.

 Likes:
Hairbands and greenstriped shirts.  Just like Sandman.
   
Dislikes:
I wouldn’t bring up Sins Past.  Damn J. Michael Straczynski.

She's a fine young filly

#35 Fluttershy


(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.
