Most Popular Characters

Journal Entry: Mon Dec 9, 2013, 12:46 PM


The Most Popular Characters at DeviantART


Have you ever wondered who the most popular characters are at DeviantART?

I liked danlev's recent post on Trending deviantART Search Terms in October. It got me thinking about popular characters on DeviantART in terms of deviation count. I'm going to need some help with this research project.

Help Wanted, Reward Offered


Search for a character and submit the number of deviations found. You can post a screenshot or just put the number in a comment. Find a Top-10 character and get 100 points:points:. Find a Top-50 character and get 10 points:points:. Each person that faves this journal will get 1 point:points:. If multiple people submit the same character, the first person gets the points.



Top 50 Popular Characters DeviantART

49) 0544569 deviations: James Karai0318
50) 0543973 deviations: Max Karai0318

Observations


Popularity is subjective. It's more correct to say that this is a list of characters that appear in the most deviation titles or tag lists. That is a mouthful though, so I chose to call this Most Popular Characters instead. Characters who have names in common with other characters (Sakura, Mai) or objects (Ash, Cloud) will get a boost in this list. Naruto gets a boost due to being commonly used in deviant names. I started a Watchers Toplist a few months ago, so check that out too.  

Bonus DeviantART Popularity Search Battle


Just a fun game to play. Who do you think would win? The highest number wins. Click the links and find out. Submit some fun combinations in the comments and I'll add it to the list.

Cosplay Friday: Avengers

Fri Jan 23, 2015, 5:46 PM
106-img-00 by techgnotic














The Avengers


First introduced by Marvel in 1963, The Avengers was Jack Kirby and Stan Lee’s superheroic response to the success of DC Comics’ Justice League of America.


In the original comic the founders of the superhero team were Thor, Iron Man, Hulk, Ant–Man, and The Wasp who came together to defeat the evil god Loki. The 2012 live–action Avengers movie loosely based on Marvel’s The Ultimates (2002) comic book series had a different core group adding Captain America and Nick Fury to the team and replacing Ant–Man and The Wasp with Hawkeye and Black Widow.


So, Who Are The Avengers?


Unlike other Marvel teams The Avengers are not mutants fighting for equal rights or a family of Four who met with unexpected effects after a mission in space. The movie version of The Avengers is a government sponsored elite team of skilled warriors, a Super SWAT team led by S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Nick Fury, while in the comics Tony Stark housed and funded the team while secretly hiding his identity as Iron Man from his teammates.


The comic world of Marvel has many twists and turns, filled with crossovers, gender swaps, and alternate timelines that aren’t always explained or don’t make it into the movie adaptations. Comic fans usually have a one up on movie fans in terms of knowing more about the characters’ origins and their backgrounds. Did you you know Nick Fury was originally white when he was first introduced in the comics and only later was he portrayed as black in an alternate timeline of The Avengers where the group is called The Ultimates as part of Marvel’s Ultimate Comics line? This change was made by the creative team of writer Mark Millar and artist Bryan Hitch, who even drew Nick Fury as Samuel L Jackson years before the movie was cast.







Classified Information: Level 7 Access Only


Nick Fury may not have super powers, but he can hold his own as one of the best military commanders of World War II where he originally met and befriended Captain America in the comics. In the comics Sgt. Nick Fury led his squad, the Howling Commandos, through Europe to Germany. After a lifetime in the military he was recruited by Tony Stark to run the newly created government super agency S.H.I.E.L.D.


Captain America was previously the leader of another military super–team known as The Invaders during WWII. He gained his power as part of an experiment by Professor Erskine to create an army of super–soldiers, but Erskine was assassinated during the experiment, making Steve Rogers the only one. He later received his circular indestructible shield as a gift from President Roosevelt.


Speaking of weapons, we all know Thor’s hammer, Mjolnir, can only be wielded by those “worthy” enough and in the movie the only one to even come close to making it budge is the original boy scout, Captain America. However in the comics the hammer can actually be wielded by other superheroes including Captain America, X-Mens’ Rogue, DC Comics’ Wonder Woman and Superman, and even Loki.


Not to be left behind in the weapons department is Tony Stark whose character was based on inventor, adventurer, multi–billionaire, ladies’ man and eventual recluse Howard Hughes. It was Iron Man’s co–creator Don Heck who modeled playboy industrialist Tony Stark’s look on Robin Hood (1938) actor Errol Flynn. When Stark dons his fully powered Iron Man suit he can lift up to 100 Tons almost the same as the Hulk, only as we now know, the angrier Hulk gets the stronger he gets, so Hulk will ultimately be the strongest.


There are a few team members who have murkier pasts. Hawkeye wasn’t always the hero we know him to be now. Clint Barton as he was originally known started out as a circus performer which is where he refined his archery skills. Eventually breaking off from the circus and going on to call himself “Hawkeye” he went down the dark path of being a villain before being inspired by Iron Man to become a superhero.


No stranger to shades of grey is the deadly Natasha Romanoff. One of the world’s best spies and assassins, she was originally a member of the Russian KGB where her ruthless effectiveness earned her code name “Black Widow.” Her threat to global security made her a target for S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Barton, who was sent to assassinate Black Widow recognized her skill and disobeyed orders recommending her as an agent instead.


Last, but not least, the Hulk. Who contrary to popular belief did not start out as a big green monster. In the comics, the Hulk’s appearance caused great difficulties for colorist Stan Goldberg who couldn’t get the right shades of grey for the Mr. Hyde side of Bruce Banner which lead to him being green in a few panels. Ultimately Stan Lee and Jack Kirby decided to keep the green coloring to make Goldberg’s job a little bit easier.


While you may not see superheroes running around on a daily basis like in the movies you might very well run into them at a comic convention. We’ve rounded up our own recruits to join the ranks of the cosplay elite.


Now grab some shawarma and check out the action–packed Avengers we’ve assembled for this edition of Cosplay Friday.

The Peanuts Revolution

Wed Dec 3, 2014, 7:32 PM
Untitled-1 by techgnotic











Charles M. SCHULZ & Charlie Brown







Peanuts was the King of the Newspaper Comic Strips, its 17,879 4-panel strips running from 1950 until the death of the author/illustrator/creator Charles M. Schulz in 2000. Along the way there were the collections of reprints in paperback editions, the TV specials that have become annual holiday staples for several generations and two Peanuts-based Broadway musicals. That’s all very impressive, but what’s truly amazing is, that in this age of superheroes, the star of Peanuts, the longest continually running saga in U.S. history, is Charlie Brown, a born loser of a little boy with very low self-esteem.


Why did this “anti-hero” story become such an All-American phenomenon?







The 1960's was the Golden Age for Comics, in both newspaper strip and comic book forms.




Charles Schulz perfected the “4-panel gag strip,” originally imported from Japan, making “Peanuts” the formulaic template for the majority of newspaper strips. But the real revolution that Schulz was quietly contributing to was the radical change in social relations and assumptions going on in America at the time. The thoroughly likable kids whose stories he told lived in an extremely progressive environment for the times, never alluded to or commented on in the strip. It’s simply presented as unremarkable that Charlie Brown’s baseball team had three girls on it. (The most overtly political the strip ever got was in the “Charlie Brown’s All-Stars” TV special in which Charlie turns down sponsorship for his team to play in a real little league because the league wouldn’t allow girls or Snoopy as players.)
















Franklin, a African American, was introduced into the neighborhood and its all white suburban school with no comment and no problems.











Peppermint Patty was introduced as an athletically-skilled tomboy, raising speculation about her sexual orientation.













The genius of Charles Schulz’s Peanuts world was that either way, all of this was OK.


This casual rationality and goodwill toward all were the subversive sorts of “hidden” messages being imprinted in the brains of Schulz’s kid-readers for at least forty years. The 60s Revolution wasn’t only in the streets; it was right in the “Funnies” section of Dad’s paper at the dinner table.


People usually decide whether to accept another person’s ideas or attitudes based first and foremost on that person’s personality and then on what they “do” for a living. If a person is likable enough and their job or main avocation is impressive enough—then their politics can be given some consideration. But only if presented in the most intellectually and confrontationally non-threatening manner possible. Like in the words and actions of child-characters in a daily comic strip.


How many of us over the years were changed for the better by having been loyal readers of Peanuts? That’s the sort of revolution that really makes a difference in our world.









Your Thoughts




  1. Do you think “Peanuts” did a lot more for teaching kids to live in a civil society than it’s ever been given credit for?
  2. Do you think teaching tolerance, non-racism, non-sexism, etc. works more effectively when it’s simply shown in the example of beloved fictional characters, rather than shouted through megaphones in the streets?  Or are both forms of protest necessary?
  3. Which cartoon series, either on TV, in the newspaper or in comic books, do you feel had the most influence in shaping your earliest feelings and attitudes about societal relationships?
  4. Would you rather be taught by the musings of Bugs Bunny, Batman, Superman, Peter Parker, Obi-Wan Kenobi or the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles – and why?
