Back in the old days, all we had to determine comic book superhero popularity was sales.
Now we have the Interweb!
And I tell you, doing some research on who is the most popular comic book character is a little strange.
Of course with the awesome movie and dying (what..twice recently?) I figured this would happen.
Robin? The Boy Hostage? He hasn't even been in a good movie. Unless you count the amazing "Grayson" fan film.
Even Obama couldnt help Spidey get up over Bats.
5. Iron Man
The movie rocked, no question.
Through ups and downs, bad and good, I've always considered The X-Men to be Marvel's flagship.
7. The Incredible Hulk
Second movie was decent. And the Hulk stirs that "Forget logic, I just wanna pound something" feeling we all get from time to time.
He goes anywhere from maniac with razor sharp blades to Byronic hero. And he has a movie coming out.
I really expected them to be higher.
10. Wonder Woman
One of DC comics Trinity. And if they EVER finally make a movie.......
Notice that with the exception of Robin, and maybe Wonder Woman, all of these have movie tie ins?
