Nominations for articles to be featured on the front page.

Guidelines

  • Nominations must be at the very least 350 words long.
  • An article is featured every month, or at the admins' discretion.
  • Whichever article has the most votes at the end of the month is featured for a month.
    • Each downvote counts as a point down for the nominee.
    • In case of a tie, the one with fewer downvotes wins.
  • Admin votes carry the same weight as regular users' votes.
  • All nominations and votes must be signed with four tildes (~~~~). Unsigned nominations and votes will be nullified.
  • Nominations and votes CANNOT BE CHANGED. Each user can only vote ONCE, for and against.
  • An article cannot be nominated twice in a row (if an article was nominated in the previous voting, it cannot be nominated again in the current one).
  • Users cannot nominate articles two months in a row.
  • Only six nominations max for every monthly voting are allowed. Any nomination surpassing this limit will be automatically disqualified.
  • CHEATING WILL NEVER BE TOLERATED. Any user who starts downvoting candidates just to rig the results or go asking other users to vote on his candidate will receive a warning and, in case of reincidence, a one month ban. No exceptions.
  • The use of sockpuppets in VFH is extremely forbidden, resulting in the permanent ban of the sockpuppet's account(s) and in the deletion of your nominated villain.
  • Once the vote was posted, there is no turning back to edit the description of your vote. If you voted against a candidate for a trivial reason and had your vote discarded by an admin, it will be forbidden to go back and edit the reason of your vote to make your denied vote valid again. Doing so will result in a week ban, NO exceptions.
  • There is a limit for how many times a villain can be nominated in a period of time. If a candidate is downvoted but still being brought to VFH more than once in the following months, the limit is 3 attempts. If a villain is downvoted 3 times, the villain cannot be proposed again until 12 months has passed after the last proposal. Bringing the villain back before then is a violation of this rule and the candidate will be erased from the nominations. For this limit to reset, the villain must not be proposed for 12 months after the last proposal.

Suggestions

  • Be original and creative with the nominations.
  • Don't vote against a villain if you haven't read the article about it yet.
  • Don't vote against a villain just because you know nothing about him/her/it.
  • Don't say anything that may be offensive to another.
  • If you're going to vote against, present an actual argument for your reasoning. "He's boring" or "I don't like him" aren't arguments.

The correct nomination format is as follows:

Homelander (The Boys)

For: 14
Against: 2
Comments
  • While it is only natural for this wiki to represent Marvel and DC for the majority of VFHs from comics, with a form of media that has such a wild assortment of works and publishers, restricting ourselves to only headline the main two comic series isn't something we should do. To address this, there are multiple avenues one can go on for adding VFHs from non-Marvel or DC comics (with Spawn, The Walking Dead, and Invincible all housing valid options), but perhaps one of the most notable comic series to rise to prominence is The Boys. With the series continuing to be successful with The Boys Presents: Diabolical releasing back in March and a third season of the TV show adaptation being set to release in June, why not allow for the series' overall main antagonist, Homelander, to be our latest VFH? Not only would Homelander serve to help better represent the western comic medium within the VFH, but Homelander serves as an interesting example of the "evil Superman" trope that has become popular through recent media, serving as a deliciously evil and entertaining foil to the symbol of American justice by representing all of the country's various vices, with his status of being shamelessly nasty remaining rather unique among the more misguided/manipulated takes that are used more often.
  • I could simply say that I think The Boys is horrible and Homelander is barely a villain worth getting headlined but I'll expand my argument a little more since it's more than just differents tastes. The Boys isn't something that one can take seriously yet it tries to take itself seriously, and by doing so, it leaves a bad taste in anyone's mouth, especially if you know the industry at all. It's not a good representative for superhero comics (again I must remind everyone that comic book villains exist beyond those in superhero ones, which haven't even been the majority in the US, which is also just ONE country that produces comics out of many dozen others), and when I say that I'm being generous, because a comic that pretty strongly implies that (if not outright insults them) esteemed figures of the industry (in the US and in the world) such as Will Eisner and Stan Lee are faggots and cocksuckers (and no I'm not kidding) is a slap in the face to the industry. The comic doesn't bring anything new to the table, nor does Homelander, as evil Supermen have been a thing since the 50s, if you don't wanna count the prototype version of Superman who WAS evil, and any of those versions have done far more with the idea than Homelander. And SPOILERS for the end of the comic, but it's later revealed that Homelander's worst crimes weren't even his, and he was forced to believe he was actually responsible for them and that he was actually that bad. And no, this doesn't make him "complex", Homelander is barely two-dimensional before and after that reveal which is acknowledged for like three pages, if you want complex and realistic you go to Alan Moore or Kurt Busiek, not Garth Ennis' infantile and disrespectful trash (not just disrespectful to the readers' intelligence and other creators but the medium as a whole) that doesn't do anything interesting with the medium as it should be done, doing the absolute minimum or less is not worth any recognition. I won't speak for the TV series because I'm never going to watch it, but being an adaptation of something like THAT gives me nothing red flags and if it is better that is nothing worth praising, 'cause when you hit rock bottom like The Boys did, there's nowhere else to go but up. Much of this is a criticism to the comic but Homelander is the face of the series and perhaps the biggest representation of how little it does and how much it insults.
  • I previously downvoted Homelander under the (false) impression that his TV series counterpart was the one being nominated and although that wasn't the case and I removed my vote, I'm reinstating it now that I've been swayed by Dark's arguments. The Boys as a comic series isn't very substantive in its critiques or message, relying largely on shock value and edginess to get its point across, and Homelander himself effectively embodies this, being a mostly two-dimensional and comically (no pun intended) evil inversion of Superman, with little nuance to his personality throughout most of the comic. The TV series is somewhat better in how he's handled, but by season 2 it starts to falter. I don't think Homelander being "popular" is enough to reconcile the issues surrounding his character.

Risky Boots

  • As the main antagonist of a great indie game series, I think that having Risky Boots headlined would be great to give some more love to Shantae.

Creeper (Jeepers Creepers)

  • The Creeper has a cool design and abilities and is a nigh-invincible force to be reckoned with due to the Creeper's knowledge of weaponry and weaponizing his truck.
  • An interesting enough horror villain (with a great actor to boot) that doesn't forget to me more terrifying than he is interesting, and as far as horror movie villains go, the Creeper when he goes all out has to be one of the most horrific. He starts out looking relatively human and not particularly dangerous or too menacing (when he's not in the dark or in his truck), but once you see his face, once a wing or something comes out and any clothes are removed, his victims are pretty much in Hell and he's the demon that welcomes then there.

Jareth

  • You could say he just steals the show everytime he's onscreen for many different reasons. He's played by David Bowie, he has great songs, his powerful presence. Even if he can be cruel, he is a beloved character by many fans of the film.

Kuroto Dan

For: 3

  • Kuroto for me was one of the highlights for Ex-Aid. Kuroto was on top of everyone for most of the show. His personality is fabulous. He is still evil even though he becomes a hero for the latter of the show. Kuroto is very complex and along with his father has the personality of god. He is one of the best villains in Ex-Aid along with his father and Parado.
  • He has a new special coming out, so he's definitely relevant. KAMI DA!!!
