5) At the moment, big time Avengers like Hank Pym, Wasp, Scarlet Witch, Vision, Beast, Wonder Man and Quicksilver are also disqualified, but can qualify if the nominator gives a good reason as to why they should be on the list. (as before, if they're are any other characters that I missed, I'll amend this list ASAP)
what qualifies as "big time Avenger"? Tigra would fit on this list as well as Beast due to WCA. Black Panther and Herc would fit based just on being a big name. what about two of my noms, Black Knight and Capt. Marvel? they both have long runs in the book, were around for major storylines, and Monica was even a long-running chairwoman. i just think this ends up being too broad a distinction which makes your available nomination pool too narrow.

You know what? You're all absolutely right, Rule 5 is far too stringent and doesn't account for characters that are now invisible, written horribly or are just freaking wallpaper. Taking that into account, I am rescinding Rule 5.
If anyone has any other rules suggestions, bring them to my attention between now and Thursday Night, before I post this thread's link to Facebook and other websites.
