    I agree with the top 30 or so for the most part (where is #30 by the way?) but after that it's a bit all over the place. So glad The Joker is above Batman (who in my opinion is a pretty bland character) but not sure why Indiana is #1.

    Ok, not much chance for discussion here, other then celebrating or bitching about a characters # or why they aren't on the list.

    That and I hate List threads.

    Closing.
