I'm going to push the edges of what is usually meant by "Greatest" a bit and nominate one of my favorite characters...

Elric

Digging a bit deeper, is the idea of the Eternal Champion, of which Elric is one incarnation, but that seems a bit abstract for our purposes here. It's more of an archetype than an actual character.

Things are shaping up real good so far. If we can keep it up I'll likely stop the nomination process by Friday and we'll begin voting next week. Keep em coming!

I'm terribly....almost devastatingly....disappointed that Chuck Norris hasn't been mentioned. On CPS nonetheless! He doesn't even need an explanation. You guys have really let me down.
