Have you ever wished you could see the character you've imagined drawn out in perfect detail by a professional artist, but you just don't have the skill to do it yourself?
Thanks to HeroMachine, now if you can imagine it, you can create it, absolutely free. With thousands of hand-drawn custom-colorable line art, you can outfit any character from any genre. Whether you're an RPGer who wants to bring a character sketch to the game, a novelist who wants to capture that perfect face to refer to as you write, or a gamer who wants a more comics-style rendering of your warrior, ninja, wizard, or archer, HeroMachine can bring that illustration to life.
Just choose the type of item you want, click on it to add it to the canvas, and choose your colors. In minutes you can build your very own customized, beautiful character sketch.
You lot were very indecisive on this weeks poll. No less than 75% of the field shared the exact same number of votes as another entry and there were at least 2 3 way ties. Fortunately, the top 4 weren't tied in any way so that does make my job a little easier.
Honourable Mentions: The 1990 Flash series, Luke Cage (which is pretty good numbers for a show that's only just been released) and Gotham

As we covered Live Action Superhero TV Shows last week, this week we're looking at the best animation that superhero TV has to offer. As always, I've given you 10 to start off with and you can add any you think I've missed. As with last week, if you can put the dates the series started and ended with your suggestions (and unlike last week you don't have to vote Flash).
Oh and don't put two series in the same suggestion. I know you can't go back and put another suggestion in after you've clicked ok to cast you vote, but putting all of your suggestions into the Other box all at once just means you're putting them as the same thing for people to vote for, so just wait until the next day to add the second series or do it from another computer. It's not something I can do anything about and if I add them separately myself, it just means you've lost your vote for those shows, because I'll have added them as new suggestions rather than as an audience voted suggestion.
And I'll be very disappointed in you all if Powerpuff Girls doesn't make it into the top 10. That show was the best.
So, here on What Were They Thinking, the series where we take a look at the stupidest, most ill advised things the comic book industry has ever done, we talk a lot about "them", "them" being a blanket term for the faceless people upstairs in the publishing houses of Marvel and DC, the writers and artists who create the terrible stuff we cover and basically everyone who works there. We don't ever focus on individuals, I mean I haven't even slagged off Rob Liefeld on this series, even when I did it originally. However, today that is going to change, because we're talking about this bloke.
