Who's the sexiest comic book character of all time? Poll results!

Mary Jane Watson, Face it, Tiger... you just hit the jackpot! John Romita, Amazing Spider-Man #42. Who is the sexiest comic book character of all time?
Did Mary Jane hit the jackpot?
Get that tiara ready, break out that sash, because the results of our hottest poll ever are in. At last, the Internet's revealed who it deems to be the sexiest comic book character of all time. In the grand old tradition, I'll be giving a quick verse of Isn't She Lovely? before doing the results in reverse order.

With no votes we have Stalin, The Daughters of the Dragon, Gullivera and Druuna. The failure of Gullivera and Druuna was especially surprising to me, mostly because I've never heard of them and am therefore surprised to discover they even exist. Still, whoever they are, they can console themselves that they are at least as sexy as Stalin, who I have heard of.

With a mighty single vote each it's Hellina, and Val from SHIELD. Sadly, the only comic book Val I'd have voted for wasn't among the nominations.

On two votes apiece it's Gwen Stacy and Phoenix. Cyclops will be so disappointed.

On three votes it's the Black Canary and Sue Storm.

Steve Does Comics favourite Mary Jane Watson shows Gwen Stacy what it's all about by coming second with a healthy five votes.

The Black Widow by John Romita. The sexiest comic book character of all time?
The Black Widow contemplates how she's going
to use her Steve Does Comics "Sexiest Character
in Comics" Award.
But the supreme champion, with a walloping nine votes, crushing all opposition like bugs, is Madame Natasha Romanoff, AKA the Black Widow. I must confess that, despite my liking for Mary Jane, I too voted for the Black Widow. It just goes to show the lasting appeal of skin-tight leather. Or was it rubber? I was never too sure.

Anyway, thanks to all who voted, and congratulations to the Black Widow, even though she doesn't exist and therefore such congratulations are wasted.

Now I have to go away and think about it; now that we know what the Internet thinks, should I draw up my own personal Top Ten sexiest characters list? After all, we all know how the Internet loves a Top Ten.

Personally I don't know what people see in the Invisible Girl.

Or have I done that joke before?

Everyone's done that joke before. (And everyone's done Mary Jane before too.)

Awww come on what about Betty or Veronica ??

Steve said...

Sadly, if they weren't nominated, they can't be voted for.

PS. Who're Betty and Veronica?

Well, it was always going to be Natasha, wasn't it? I didn't vote for her 'cos I felt duty-bound to vote for "Val from SHIELD" as I'd nominated her. ( I'd also sort of nominated Stalin but we won't go there... )Anyway, I'd always thought it would come down to a battle between Mary Jane and Natasha: two red-headed bombshells going at it, head to head...
I'm going for a lie down now...
