Although for me Haddock is the best, he is the most human, I also think Rastapopoulos is genius: a villain of villains through the series!
I love the way he is developed and interwoven through the books.

Me too, though I think that Rastapopoulos lost a little bit of credability in Flight 714.

You should have a good idea who my favourite is now; I champion his cause in every post I write...

Who else could come out with such fabulous curses? (And sound good?)

Could be because he looks and acts just like my grandad.

Whatever the reason, Archie is tops.

Archie Haddock of course.

You're right Karaboudjan, the curses are brilliant. Apart from the usual "Bashi-Bazouk" and "Pockmark" he says things like: "Toffee-noses" and "Tribe of Polynesians" who else curses like that?

My all time fav Haddock moment is when he tries to cure Calculus of his amnesia in "Destination Moon" the water pistol, cavalry costume and ghost impression are absolutey priceless.

Hmm... It's probably a toss-up between Tintin and the Captain, they both have qualities that I like a lot. The Thompsons are my other favorite characters because they are so hilariously stupid (yet have their rare intelligent sparks now and then...)!

My favorite bad guy is by far Allan...

I absolutely love Tintin himself! He's so conservative, understanding, skilled in all areas, noble...in fact, I had a crush on him when I was twelve!

Looking back now, I think I like pretty much all the characters, but my favorite would be a tie between Tintin, Snowy, and the Thompsons. The latter for the obvious reason, and Tintin simply for being Tintin, as JuvenileTintinFan said above. When I first encountered Tintin as a young child, he was my hero. He did everything I aspired to, and yet remained very protagonistic and moral. I also found him more convincing and likeable than a lot of other comic heroes all my classmates adored. I list Snowy as well, unlike many others, not only because he is so cute, but when I first came across the series, the idea of personification in animal characters was completely new to me.

My Top Ten

1. Captain Archibald Haddock ¨
Unodubtedly Haddock's the best character ever. He drinks and curses alot but he is still a nice man, and let's not forget that he is very generous. He allows Tintin and any other of his friends to stay at Marlinspike as long as they want.

2. Tintin
Do I need to write a comment?

3. Cutbert Calculus
Everyone's favorite "mad scientist". He was quite annoying in "The Treasure of Rackham the Red" but I loved him in the other books.

4. Dr. Müller
Müller is the best Tintin villain. Smart, ruthless and not afraid to get his hands dirty. What's better he is never made into a buffoon like Rastapopoulos.

5. Snowy
He's Snowy, enough said.

6. Rastapopoulos
I'll never learn how to spell his name. Great villain, although not as great as the doctor.

7. Emir Ben Kalish Ezab and Abdullah
They have the ultimate father-son relationship. I loved the fact that the Emir get's infuriated as soon as he, himself is the victim of one of Abdullah's pranks.

8. Senor Oliviera da Figueira
The man who sells everything. Don't know how to spell his last name either.

9. The Thompsons
They are just hilarious.

10. Castafiore
Someday I want to marry a woman like her. Or maybe not.

See the section on editing in the user guide. My guess is that you have let 48hrs elapse.

Looks like you are stuck pledging your love to the Milanese Nightingale!
