The Green 15: Pop culture’s greatest green characters

March 17, 2009 | 3:29 p.m.

Well, it’s St. Patrick’s Day, and here at the mighty Hero Complex that got me to thinking: “Gee, who are the greatest green-skinned characters ever in pop culture?” No, I haven’t been drinking already, thanks for asking. Anyway, check out this fancy photo gallery where I rank the finest lime-colored icons in film, television and comics.

Who will be No. 1? I’ll give you a hint: He’s NOT one of the three greenies you see below …


What do you think? Did I forget anybody? Maybe I should open this up to a reader poll … come back here and leave a comment after you check out the gallery.
