  1. Im voting for the soulless one..The lawyer that is.

    Kickass character, kickass costume, halloween-esq, classic yet appropriate for this year, awesome amount of details and kickass facial expression to go with it.

    Besides thats what i would have worn.

  2. how could you not vote for Aphrodite IX. She captures the character the best out of all of them! have you guys even read Aphrodite IX? i mean honestly, thats here right there!

  3. Wow, all of these are amazing entries……I’m torn, I think if I knew who Aphrodite IX was then I would vote for her, it seems like a lot of work went in to replicating comic covers in her poses. Bizzarro is great….how long did it take to do that 2 face make up…wow……and a lot of very pretty readers…….did i just type that out loud………

  4. herm. trying to vote for meer’s incomparable bizarro — yet each time i hit vote is says “please choose a valid poll answer”….
    maybe if it were comparable then it’d be valid.

  5. Well Done Everyone!!

    This was a tough choice but Two face gets my vote this time!!!

    (Just saw how close it is 28% Bizzaro, 27% Two Face – Looks like this is going down to the wire…)


  6. Is the poll closed? I can’t find where I get to vote, and I’ve even cleared my cookies in case I had one kickin’ around and gumming up the works.

    Mark Meer could play a telephone book convincingly. He’s amazing and hilariously funny, when he wants to be, as well. I would like to see him play Bizzarro live.

    andy ive been lucky enough to have been on STAGE with mark.. and yes his Bazzarro is just drop dead amazing captures the essance of him.. and spot on the phonebook comment. i beleave mark has the tallent to do any role thrown at him.

  8. oh come on people. Bizarro for the win.
    hands down.
    i think it also helps that I’ve seen Mark as Bizarro, and his character is dead on.
    but even without seeing him become Bizarro, the costume still stands as the best out of all of them.
