The List: Top 10 DC Superheroes

So, in our last poll we asked the question: "who is DC's greatest superhero" and I made some predictions as to what the line up would be. Unfortunately Aquaman let me down, getting bumped into 11th place and thus ruining my clean sweep, but that's ok, it saves you all from the numerous sea based puns I had planned for his entry. Also, I'm going to put the surprisingly large gap in voter participation between this and the Marvel version (over 100 votes less for DC than Marvel) down to the predictability of the result, but we still have a list, so let's get to it.

Hon Mentions: Aquaman (Arthur Curry), The Flash (Wally West), Rorschach (Walter Joseph Kovacs)

The List: Top 10 Greatest Superhero Teams

Well, this was an interesting poll. We had a lot of votes and a lot of good suggestions by you guys, some that I would have never thought of in a million years, and some rather interesting results. So let's get right on into said results.

Hon Mentions: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, The Incredibles, The Defenders

The List: Top 10 Greatest Marvel Supervillains

So, in our last poll I asked you guys to vote on who you think is Marvel's greatest supervillain and, as with when we did Marvel's greatest superhero we got a pretty good response, although this list is probably going to be slightly more predictable even if we don't have a very obvious winner. Anyway, let's jump in shall we.

Honorable Mentions (or should it be dishonorable as it's villains?): Doctor Octopus, the Venom Symbiote, Apocalypse

The List: Top 10 Greatest Marvel Superheroes

So, in our last poll we posited the question "who is Marvel's Greatest Superhero". Now this is an interesting question because, unlike their Distinguished Competition (to borrow a phrase from the late great Stan Lee), Marvel don't really have a "fixed pantheon" of superheroes. This is possibly down to their main super-team. Unlike the Justice League, the Avengers doesn't really have a "classic" line-up and hasn't ever really been the be all, end all of the Marvel Universe because, at various times, they've been overshadowed by other Marvel characters who weren't part of the Avengers (X-Men being a good example of this). With DC, all of their big hitters (both in universe and IRL) were in the Justice League and no other super team really came close, whereas Marvel had all of their in universe big hitters in the Avengers but none of their IRL biggest and most culturally significant characters were until around 2005 (40 odd years after the team first started). Obviously that has changed now, but having such a long period of fluidity has led to a very interesting result of our poll. So, I think I've rambled enough up here, let's actually jump into the list shall we:

Honorable Mentions: Captain Marvel (Carol Danvers), Black Panther (T'Challa), The Hulk (Bruce Banner)

The List: Top 10 Worst Superhero Movies

Well, here we are. Our last list was the Best Superhero Movies, so now we dive to the other end of the scale. And I have to say this, I'm very surprised at some of the nominations oyu guys made/ didn't make. We didn't see nominations for either of the original Fantastic Four movies (the ones with Jessica Alba) or either of Nicholas Cage's Ghost Rider movies (which probably wouldn't have made the list but I'm surprised nobody even nominated them) nor Blade Trinity (which had Ryan Reynolds in it and had such a troubled production that the lead actor had a body double do all of the shots where his face wasn't explictly required). But instead we got the 2004 Spider-Man movie (by which we're assuming Spider-Man 2, which was awesome) and Captain Marvel (which will not be making the list, sorry, I cannot justify it being on the list when none of the aforementioned films weren't even nominated, nor can I justify it being any higher than any number of movies that are on the list) were nominated. But anyway, admin out of the way, let's see what did make the list shall we:

The List: Every MCU Movie Ranked From Worst To Best

So, 2 weeks ago I asked you guys to vote on what you thought was the best movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, so we could update our list from 2 years ago (you can find the poll here and the oringal list here). The spoiler embargo for Endgame is well and truely over, so if you haven't seen it, or any of the movies on this list then a) spoilers and b) go watch them. Now lets get into the ranking, starting at the bottom (as voted for by you guys) and making our way to the top.

The List: Top 10 Spider-Man Villains

So, Spider-Man. He does whatever a spider can, which apparently includes swinging overhead, spinning a web any size and catching thieves like flies. However, it seems that what spiders are best at is accruing enemies (just ask the worlds approximately 427 million Arachnophobes), and seen as our favourite wall-crawler has all the abilities of a spider it should come as no surprise that he has made his fair share of enemies during his 55 years in publication. Indeed, he has one of the greatest rogues galleries in all of comics, but who are his best villains, the elite of arachnid adversaries? Well, I guess we need a list.

Honourable Mentions: Rhino (Alexi Sytsevich), Sandman (Flink Marko), Scorpion (Mac Gargan)

The List: Top 10 Best Performances In A Superhero TV Show

You know, hindsight is really annoying, serving only to remind you that you could have done something better if you'd have done it slightly differently. In hindsight, yes I should have separated this into Live-Action and Cartoon, as I did with the Best Superhero TV Shows. But I didn't, so we're just gonna have to deal with it at this point.

Anyway, I think we'll get on with the list shall we?

Honourable Mentions: Melissa Benoist- Supergirl (Supergirl 2015- Pres), Tom Welling- Clark Kent (Smallville 2001-11)

The List: Top 10 Greatest Doctor Who Moments (2005-17)

So, seen as there wasn't a poll up last week (due to an unfortunate oversight on my part), I didn't have a list topic planned for this week. So what to do when I don't have a topic planned? Well, I've been doing a decent number of Doctor Who lists since the start of the year, so why break a trend right? This week we're looking at the best "moments" of the revived series of Doctor Who (2005-17). By moments, I'm talking about scenes that are especially emotionally impactful, that show the series writing at its best and its characters (especially The Doctor) at their most enthralling and engaging.  For example: David Tennant's "I am The Doctor" speech aboard the wreck of The Titanic in the 2007 Christmas Special, which is around 8 lines of continuous dialogue that coveys everything you need to know about the character, not only through his words but through Tennant's delivery and the reactions of the other characters in the scene. That particular scene would be number 11 on this list if I went to a top 20, so consider it an honourable mention.

Before we get started, I'm only including one moment/ scene per episode, so whilst some episodes have multiple classic moments, I'll only be including the one that I feel is the best. Now without further ado, I think its time we went on an adventure in time and space.
