I can honestly say that while I may have photoshopped the original Grammara and originally drawn him, I am NOT Grammara.

I have never heard of she hulk.

Bond though, great choice.  And Daniel Craig is the sexiest Bond in my opinion.

Are you familiar with the term "little death"...

#20 Death
   

(44 Points) 3 of 24 Lists - Highest Ranking - #6 Johnny Unusual
   
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.

And yes, sex with her as she-hulk would probably result in it being removed at the root.

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.

Come along, Pond

#19 Amy Pond
   

(44 Points) 3 of 24 Lists - Highest Ranking - #5 Lassieface
   
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.

I've never watched Doctor Who, but I wholeheartedly endorse the individual depicted in this photo being included on anything. She is smokin' like a tire fire.

#18 Harley Quinn
   
   

(46 Points) 3 of 24 Lists - Highest Ranking - #2 RoninFox
   
Appeal:

Crazy and affectionate.  And crazy.

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.

Cap'n...

#17 Turanga Leela
   

(46 Points) 4 of 24 Lists - Highest Ranking - #1 Darth Geek
   
Appeal:

Smart.  Confident.  Boot wearing.  Has a prom dress made of carpet remnants.

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.

Death just missed my list by a hair.... so I'm glad to see she made it afterall.

Harley was on my list... both versions of her, Always had a yen for crazy girls who kick-ass! I admit it, I'm attracted to the dangerous type. That hasn't worked out for me in the real world, because bad girls eventually grind my mind, body and soul to dust. But in the dream world I can indulge without fear of, well in Harley's case... death!

#16 Kitty Pryde
   

(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.

999, huh?  Maybe I'll give you my Herman Cane.

#15 June
   

(48 Points) 2 of 24 Lists - Highest Ranking - #1 Invader Quirk
   
Appeal:

I’m guessing another one of the game’s mysteries.

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.
