Well, I guess the Absorbascon is good advertisement, cause I wasn´t aware of the PG fan page and just subscribed to it.
Anyway, I think that Bats and Supes have those numbers out of sheer brand recognition outside comics, something that DC is of course aware ( wonder what profit DC Comics gets out of something like The Dark Knight, other than a sales bump and a happy board at TW ).
It's a shame about Wonder Woman, though: She should be #3 based on the same brand recognition, specially since FB is all about women and gay men, unlike other online resources, which are all about geeks and comic fans, or the intersection of those two groups.
How do the various Marvel (or other popular non-DC) heroes stack up?
"FB is all about women and gay men"
And here I thought it was all about socioeducational class...
Please add numbers for Superboy and Archie Andrews.
Facebook ain't about any demographic other than FREE-TIME.
The last character mentioned is hardly a surprise. He has no true "friends." He walks the Earth alone.
For he is...a stranger.
(And gold medallions with white turtlenecks aren't as hip as they used to be.)
Yes, I was happy the Phantom Stranger had no page for the exact opposite reason I was happy Geo-Force didn't.
They keep trying to make a Phantom Stranger Facebook page - but it just DISAPPEARS!!!
Gold medallions with white turtlenecks are out?
Where is John Rogers in the writer's poll? I loved his run on Blue Beetle -- classic in the making.
Dave, you should be happy it didn't punch you in the face or give you a stern dressing down BEFORE disappearing...!
Robin is just so darn misunderstood, isn't he? I think his fans are just a little of the quiet type. They must have a secret account over there. I would.
The problem with making a Phantom Stranger FACEbook page is that the top half of it would always be in shadow....no matter what the angle.
YAY for Green Lantern!
The Phantom Stranger's friends know who they are...or so I've heard.
I'm sure the Phantom Stranger's friends include such people as The Shadow, the Whistler, the Mysterious Traveller, the Man with No Name, the Gentleman Ghost, and Doctor M.T. Graves.
But when questioned, one person long suspected to be the Stranger's closest friend, one Cassandra Craft, stated bluntly "I've never seen the man in my life!"
This is slightly off topic, but have you read any of the Vertigo "Madame Xanadu" series?
There's lots of Phantom Stranger in it and as far as I'm concerned it's *very* good Phantom Stranger...
No less than four Aunt May listings, and several May Parkers, but none of them appear to be Peter's relative. I kind of dig the tough old dame with the coffin nail, though. Mephisto pops up in her neighborhood and all he'll get is a faceful of smoke and a kick in the balls.
The Phantom Stranger IS the Mysterious Traveller. That's just the name he uses on Earth-4.
Evidently your post has caused some people to declare their love for Robin, because his page now has 22 members. And I'm a member of the Nightwing group, which has 510 members.
I did sign up in the Robin page.
