Oh, please! SENSOR GIRL. No contest.

Hush? "Gee, Scooby,it's Mr. Wilkins the caretaker!"

Ruin? Wasn't the Pete becomes a bad guy plot done in the Silver/Bronze Age?

Monarch? Hank Hall, dumb football jock/time spanning reality conquerer?

Not only was the reveal it was amplified that both Sensor Girl and her alter ego were both well-liked and interesting characters.

If I had to pick, I'd go with Sensor Girl. No question.

I think someone's gonna have to describe this Sensor Girl reveal to me. This isn't from the Waid book, is it?

No, Sean, is was from Paul Levitz's series from the 80s.

I forget, was Mr. Blue the guy hunting down Bruce Banner or the person giving Banner all of the help and advice via computer (basically, his IM buddy)?

Mr. Blue was Hulk's IM buddy. The villain hunting him down was revealed to be the Leader.

What about who was Scourge and also who was Hobgoblin?

So WOULD someone with the name Lefty want to know who Hobgoblin was!

I left those two off because...

A. Scourge's reveal was lame

and

B. Hobgoblin's reveal was not the one Stern wanted!
