Best Of 2010: Best Character

Jordamus Prime 12/31/2010 Features, Reviews
Here at Comic Booked, we take our comics very seriously! 2010 has been an awesome year to be a comic book fan, but there has been so much going on that it’s hard to actually keep up with it all! That’s why we’re here to present you with our Best of 2010 Awards! Our writers selected what they considered to be the best releases of 2010 as Nominees, and after weeks of careful consideration and deliberation we’ve brought you our choices for the best of everything to do with comics that’s happened in the past year!
Here we have the Nominees for Best Character of 2010-
Jordamus Prime Nominates- Scott Pilgrim
2010 was truly the year of the geek, and what character can be thanked for that more than Scott Pilgrim? This year Scott Pilgrim was everywhere; and that is in no way a bad thing. Unfortunately, with the long running graphic novel series having come to a close this year, fans may not see much of Scott in the future. Kudos to the Scott Pilgrim, and his franchise, for being a triple hitter this year with two successful adaptations and a superb series finale!

Colin Bell Nominates- Damian Wayne
Damian started this year in as a spoiled brat in a wheelchair and ended it by showing himself to be a shrewd businessman, Teen Titan, a representative of a global franchise of Batmen, a future Batman himself, and above all a worthy Robin.  In terms of character progression this year there was none finer, and I can’t wait to see him continue to be let loose across the DCU.

Andy Kirby Nominates- Mephisto
Tough call this year, but Mephisto’s appearances in Thor clinched it for me.  The almighty Prince of Darkness has so many of Marvel’s heroes in his pocket from his dealings with people twice and thrice removed.  I’m waiting for him to call in all his favors at once.

Nicole Sixx Nominates- Harley Quinn
While I am a complete sucker for the narrative styles of both Scarlet and Boba Fett, I have to give this one to Harley Quinn. Whether she’s calling Selina “Kitty”, kicking butt, or taking about Pop Tarts, I just can’t get enough of the girl.

Harley Quinn

Skott of Fables Nominates- Lobo
Since he popped back up in June’s Green Lantern #55 I’ve renewed my interest in Lobo, The Main Man. In this issue he is hired to kill the Red Lantern’s leader Atrocitus. Green Lantern believes, in the end, he knows how to defeat Lobo, thinking he’s afraid of the Green Lantern, but the truth is Lobo was paid to attack Atrocitus by Atrocitus himself. How better to make Green Lantern think they are on the same side? And Lobo’s payment? A Red Ring.

And the winner, for Best Character of 2010 is…
Damian Wayne!

Damian Wayne: Winner, Best Character Of 2010

Congratulations to all the wonderful writers and artists that made Damian such a great character this year, to Mike W. Barr, Grant Morrison and Andy Kubert for bringing him into existence, and last but not least, to Damian himself! If you aren’t familiar with the character, make sure to pick up the Batman and Son, Battle For The Cowl, and Batman & Robin Volumes One and Two trade paperbacks at your local comic shop to catch up on this amazing character!

    I love Robin, but I don't know much about Damian. Definitely gotta check him out!

    A worthy pick, but somewhat unusual as my DC buddies can't stand the kid…

      Honestly? I used to hate him. The first few years of his existance, I hated him with a passion. When they made him Robin, I was FURIOUS (Tim Drake is my favorite DC character, so you can imagine someone I hate stealing his title…). Then I read the book. Holy crap, once he became Robin he skyrocketed to greatness. He's now one of my personal favorite DC characters because he's essentially a 10 year old sociopath.

        How'd you feel to see him take on a new moniker: Red Robin?
