I don't think we've ever done a sheep game in here before, but the rules are pretty simple:

Fill out this survey with who you think BSS as a whole thinks is the answer. You get one point for everyone who answers the same as you, including yourself. E.g. if you and 28 other people pick Theodore Roosevelt for best president, you all get 29 points.
Most points at the end wins.
There's a handful of questions that specify 2017, but the ones that do not are open to the entirety of comics history, so keep that in mind as you fill it out.
You don't have to fill anything out, but you'll be losing out on a point if you leave anything blank.

I will give the winner a forums upgrade of their choice.

Feel free to discuss your answers here, but beware that if you fill out your survey and start talking about it, it might give someone else a leg up.

I will be closing responses sometime on January 7 (basically whenever I get around to it), so you have until then to fill out your answers!

Let me know if something's not working for whatever reason and I'll fix it.

I couldn't think of any new artists in 2017 so I had to leave that one blank.

He who fights shitposters should see to it that he himself does not become a shitposter. And if you gaze for long into an anidavatar, the anidavatar gazes also into you.

I figured since it said "Breakout" I could pick someone who had done earlier work but who had a lot of exposure in 2017.

I entered, and I look forward to finding out how wrong I was!

I kind of gave up on tryign to divine BSS' whims and just went with my gut for half of them.

Also I misunderstood the tiebreaker I think. Oh well!

I just figured it was how many questions you think you'll get right.

Or was it how many points you think your score? In which case I massively underbid.

Yet where is that woman now? Tell me, in what heave does she reside? None of them. Because no God bothered to listen or care. If that is what you think it means to be a God, then you and all your teachings are welcome to do as that poor women did. And vanish from these realms forever.

You're wrong on both accounts.

In fact, there is only one with no matches yet. Comically, even the tiebreaker has a match, so hopefully those people don't need a tie broken.

I meant to say Greg Pak, not Greg Land.

Also, for the record, I called Nazi Captain America "Steevil "Hydra Supreme" Rodgers"

In second place is Big Bad Voodoo Lou with 107 points, and in third by tiebreaker is Yvonmukluk with 99 points!

The rest of the scores are as follows:

What the hell tiebreaker did you put down that I beat you? I put something like 14 because I misunderstood the question!

I'll take it, though! 3rd is right after 2nd & 1st!

Also drat, how'd I forget Red Hood exists? I just went for Hal & Barry.

Also what up fellow Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 liker, whoever you are!

I had a good feeling I had this for sure, knowing the tastes of BSS. But congratulations to Doctor Spaceman!

I guess I let my hate for the Joker as a character blind me. Have you ever met any hardcore Joker fans who think he's a misunderstood rebellious rogue, who cheer for his murder sprees and root for his abusive relationship with Harley because "they're made for each other"? Some of the creepiest weirdos I've ever met.
