I only saw Wally West as an option. I think it voted for him when I I tried to figure out who else u could vote for. Either way, my vote wouldn’t be for him, it would be Plastic Man if that’s an option?

BB is too crude for me. Joker is too homicidal for me (though he has his moments). Which leaves Wally!

Beast Boy couldn’t be funny if he were simultaneously possessed by the ghosts of all Three Stooges and all four Marx Brothers. Wally’s funny sometimes, but I don’t think he’s a “funniest ever” contender by any stretch, especially not compared to Bart.

Of the options presented, for numerous reasons that I’d be willing to discuss in more detail if people are interested, I think the Joker works the best when he is genuinely funny on some level. I additionally find the writers who have the best handle on the Joker’s voice and personality like Paul Dini and Chuck Dixon are also the ones who make him the funniest. That’s one of the reasons Mark Hamill is such a great Joker, too: plenty of Joker actors can be appropriately menacing, but Hamill can also deliver the slapstick really well.

Outside these options, Impulse has got to be up there, and it’s hard to pick a specific character, but a lot of the cast of Justice League International would be contenders as well.

Fun topic, @ZatannaAndHerSpells! I love a solid dose of humor in my comics!

Aside from the characters mentioned, I really loved the way that Guy Gardner was portrayed in Green Lantern: The Animated Series (Season 1: Episode 14). They did a great job showing Guy rubbing “Hal Jordan of Earth” the wrong way - always being seen in the background of a conversation… “Hey! Is that Guy?!” :joy:

Hey everyone! Due to some technical difficulties with the last poll, we had to do a bit of a reset. Everything is working now, so feel free to cast your votes again! :smiley:

My personal belief is that there is no inherently funniest character. Given a particular scene, even Batman can be funny, or Plastic Man can be dead serious. It all depends on the writer.

That said, given the choice: I have to go with Beast Boy — and collectively the Teen Titans. They’re the only ones collectively sustaining a pure comedy series.

But he has his own team of joke writers. I go Plastic Man. @HubCityQuestion is accurate on the writer having an influence, but I’ve always thought Plas has one of the best continuous streaks of funny writing around? Just my opinion. At least we both landed on Beast Boy. Me & Hub that is. That was worded wrong.
