Hello, It is Jeremy, the guy that did the Option38 guest reviews of The Fly (1980s series) #1 and Americomics Special #1. I am starting a thread that will tally all of the articles on that site devoted to various comic book characters. It will cover the regular comic book reviews, Hypertime Arena, and the TV/Movie reviews!

There are some rules to this, though:
*For all intents and purposes, the G.I.Joe franchise will be excempt from the tally. Otherwise, they will lead the tally by a WIDE margin!
* In the case of team-up books, the 'second billing' characters will only be counted IF they already have an individual book listed where they headlined (So the Flash will be listed, but not Hercules, Nighthawk, The Doon Patrol, Firestorm, or Blue Beetle.)
*Likewise, Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends and Ultimate Avengers will be listed under Spider-Man and Avengers, respectively.

This list is accurate as of 7/15/2011. Only the top four entries will get separate listings:
#1: Batman (12)
#2: Avengers (10)
#3: Justice League (8)
#4: Spider-Man (7)

Four Each:
Superman; Ghost Rider.
Three Each:
Fantastic Four; Captain America.
Two Each:
Hank Pym, Punisher, Thor, Defenders, Flash, Green Arrow, Hulk, Daredevil, Aquaman, Super Friends.
One Each:
Nick Fury, Phantom Eagle, Blackhawk, Hawkman, Thing, Man-Thing, Transformers, Martian Manhunter, Team Charlton, The Fly, Brainiac, Luthor, Alpha Flight, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, Shogun Warriors, Crimoson Dynamo, All-Star Squadron, Tiger-Man, The A-Team, Hardware, Judge Dredd, Wolverine, KISS, Nightwing, Union Jack, DCU Misc., Thunderbolts, Iron Man, Starman, Brother Voodoo, Kingpin, Apache Chief, Krypto, Watchmen, Dr. Strange, Captain Marvel (DC).

I hope you guys could enjoy this look at Option38, which you can check out at: www.option38.com .

Well, it has been only a week, but Option38 has posted another installment in their series spotlighting crappy FIRST ISSUES!

Remember that rule from the opening post about 'second billing' characters in 'team-up' books and why they will only be counted if they already have a book in which they headlined? Well, the Doom Patrol have graduated as the book being reviewed is 1988's 'Doom Patrol and Suicide Squad Special' #1!

Updated ratings as of 08/22/2011:
1: Batman (12)
2: Avengers (10)
3: Justice League (8)
4: Spider-Man (7)

Four Reviews Each:
Superman, Ghost Rider.
Three Reviews Each:
Fantastic Four, Captain America.
Two Reviews Each:
Hank Pym, Punisher, Thor, Defenders, Flash, Green Arrow, Hulk, Daredevil, Aquaman, Super Friends, Doom Patrol.
One Review Each:
Nick Fury, Phantom Eagle, Blackhawk, Hawkman, Thing, Man-Thing, Transformers, Martian Manhunter, Team Charlton, The Fly, Brainiac, Luthor, Alpha Flight, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, Shogun Warriors, Crimson Dynamo, All-Star Squadron, Tiger-Man, The A-Team, Hardware, Judge Dredd, Wolverine, KISS, Nightwing, Union Jack, DCU Misc., Thunderbolts, Iron Man, Starman, Brother Voodoo, Kingpin, Apache Chief, Krypto, Watchmen, Dr. Strange, Captain Marvel (DC), New Warriors, Suicide Squad.

That was quick!

Jeremy.
