Mine is in, and I'm happy with it.

It does lean on the female side of things, but I didn't force that. There weren't any men I bumped off the list that I really wanted on my 25 (on the other hand there were several ladies I wish I could have included). I read a lot of female centered comics (superhero or otherwise) so it would have been that way regardless.

Can't wait to see how this 50 plays out, and how it will compare to the original.

I only ended up with 4 females on my list, but 3 were in my top 10.

I also ended up with 7 anthropomorphic animals (3 of whom are ducks), 2 living cartoons, and a robot, so I guess I was going for a different kind of diversity.

Just sent my list in, looking forward to the countdown!

Also I said I have a Punisher-esque vigilante on my list, but that's not accurate, since this character is the law. Probably a debatable character (what with having been in satirical wars with crazy body counts), but is also one of the more notable action heroes in comics oddly enough. And does defeat supervillains, even undead forces from another dimension!

Like I said, there are characters I could look at and say "Hmm, I dunno." but if you asked me to draw a clear line or definition, I'd be stumped.  It can be a hard thing to define.

I have 1 who is often described as an anti-hero. They've been cast as a villain at times, and they'd been a straight up hero at others. I looked at other list across the web, and this person made the hero lists on those lists. So I felt ok going with it.

I only ended up with 4 females on my list, but 3 were in my top 10.

I also ended up with 7 anthropomorphic animals (3 of whom are ducks), 2 living cartoons, and a robot, so I guess I was going for a different kind of diversity.

I had a couple of robots, android types. One wound up on the list after my final cut. It's interesting how even the bots are often cast as male or female. Either in form or in voice. And addressed as either "he" or "she" by other heroes or villains. Even a certain sexless service bot was referred to as "him" in a comic I read not long ago.

I've never liked anthropomorphic animals... though a certain movie did make me a fan of one.  ;)

Oh, that reminds me of this!

Only a few more days!  I finished my list, but it was tough.  I was kind of surprised that only one character on my list DIDN'T originate from comics.  I was expecting more.

Par for the course. Almost all the characters on my list came from the comics.

6 of mine came from outside of comics. All of mine have been in a comic at some point.

I'm working on a list. As you may have noticed, I'm a huge procrastinator.

So is Robo Cop a superhero? I considered him and was curious.

All done. I believe all of mine came from the movies and cartoons I’ve seen.

Sent mine in. I'm sure there are going to be plenty I forgot.

That's a tough one.  I... think so?  Again, use your best judgment, these can be tough.

Anyway, we have 13 lists total so far.  Not bad, I think, but I am hoping we get one or two more in the next couple days.  I'll start tallying tomorrow, but the process does take a while.  And if you want to make any changes in that time, go ahead.

Robo became more comic booky in later films... the TV stuff. I seem to remember him flying at some point. Or was that just a bad dream I had?
