The quest continues to determine the Best Comic Book Character, according to the Geek. In Round 3 the top 40 characters duked it out.

You can see the nomination and discussion thread here: The Best Comic Book Character - Nominations and Discussion Thread, where most of the 356 characters who took part in this contest were nominated.

The Top 20 have been split into 4 brackets of 5 characters. The best characters judged by average rating will progress to the next round, size TBC, maybe The Final. They will also need a minimum number of votes to progress to ensure that the results are relevant to The Geek.

I will amalgamate the results from all the brackets, so there is no limit to the number who can progress from each bracket - or a guarantee that any will progress from a group.

Note that you don't need to select 'Don't Know Them' for characters you don't know, you can just leave the row blank.

All the rounds will be announced here, so subscribe if you don't want to miss them:

Voting is over for this round, The Final is here:

So what happened in the last round? The main measure used for qualification for this round was Average Rating. To calculate this points were awarded for each rating: Best (4), Awesome (3), Great (2), Good (1), Okay (0), Bad (-1). I don't publish the results of the average ratings to retain some mystery to the contest.

Just missing the cut for the Top 20 based on average rating were:

The Tick
Thor
Doctor Doom
Captain Haddock (Tintin)
Dr Manhattan
Hulk
Lucky Luke
Hellboy
Storm
Daredevil
John Constantine
Rocket Racoon
Usagi Yojimbo
Spirou (Spirou et Fantasio)

Top 10 by Most 'Best' Votes:

1 Batman
2 Spider-Man
3 Wolverine
4 The Joker
5 Captain America
6 Asterix
7 Obelix
8 Tintin
9 The Tick
10 Morpheus (Dream - Sandman)

This list is a straight count of the characters getting the most 'Best' ratings in the last round. These also make up 7 of the best by Average Top 10.
Batman, Spiderman and Wolverine maintain their spots 1-3.
All but two of these make the cut for this round: Tintin and The Tick drop out.

Top Ten Most 'Bad' Votes (in the Top 40)

1 Tintin
2 V (for Vendetta)
3 The Tick
4 Captain America
5 The Joker
6 Hulk
7 Hellboy
8 Rorschach
9 Daredevil
10 Doctor Doom

This list is a straight count of the characters getting the most 'Bad' ratings in the last round.
Three of these make the cut for the Top 20: Captain America, Rorschacch and The Joker.

Top 10 Most Rated (aka Most Well Known)

1 Batman
2 Spider-Man
3 Wonder Woman
4 Hulk
5 Wolverine
6 Daredevil
7 Thor
8 The Joker
9 Iron Man
10 Magneto

This is a straight count of ratings.
Seven of these made the cut for this round.
Hulk, Daredevil and Thor go out...

Least known characters that made the Top 20

1 Agatha Heterodyne (Girl Genius)
2 Spider Jerusalem (Transmetropolitan)
3 Lying Cat (Saga)
4 Alana (Saga)
5 Death of the Endless (Sandman)
6 Morpheus (Dream - Sandman)
7 Asterix
8 Obelix
9 Rorschach
10 Nightcrawler

So these are the characters in some of the best comics you've never read!

Here we go with Round 4.

Characters have been grouped so as to roughly equalise the pods (based on the voting from Round 3).

We won't be limiting the number that can come through from any one bracket, so a bracket that has lots of awesome characters will not be greatly penalised. I will look at the average scores across all the entrants to determine the cut for the next round.

The voting process is simple. Rate all the characters you know and then upgrade a single one in each bracket from "Awesome" to "Best". If you don't have an "Awesome", don't choose a "Best".

You don't have to select Don't Know for those you don't know, you can just leave the row blank if you like. If you want to change your votes, click "Questions" make the changes, then click "Vote".

Here we go!
