The Hulk lead the list!
1. The Hulk (“Marvel’s The Avengers”)
We have an army of deserving contenders on our list of the Top 50 Movie Characters of 2012. In first place, we have a Hulk. Mark Ruffalo’s performance, Joss Whedon’s inspired writing and the groundbreaking work from the “Avengers” effects team joined together to make a Hulk that their predecessors could not: a wholly human, entirely relatable and impossibly bad-ass juggernaut of gamma-radiated awesome. No amount of archers, back-breakers or puny gods can stand between our giant green rage monster and his rightful place as the number one movie character of the year. And if you’re angry about our choice, take it up with the big guy. After all, he can relate — he’s always angry. — Josh Wigler
