5) Deadpool (@BigMouthMerc)

If the real Deadpool was on Twitter, this would be his account. It's chaotic, it's funny, and it's violent. Also, his webpage links to the Golden Girls fansite. And, most importantly, it's updated pretty regularly with more and more hilarity. "Now about that parade. We should get started. San Francisco loves parades. My float should be made of tacos and naked women." "And red should be everyone's favorite color. It's the last one they see when they meet me most of the time."

4) Iron Man (@RealTonyStark)

It's easy to slip out of character when you're role playing, but Iron Man himself keeps it real for an ungodly amount of tweets. After 4,000 tweets, "Tony Stark" still stays in character while tweeting, referencing the comic books and posting links that Tony Stark would find interesting. "I still wish I could remember what happened during those months. Like all the women I slept with but can't recall." "I feel like people back home aren't taking these shootings seriously enough. This is how wars start, this is how civil wars start."

3) Darkwing Duck (@TheRealDarkwing)

Just his profile cracked me up: "I am the terror that flaps in night. I am the tweet that's more than 140 characters!" He does a lot of shilling for his own comic books, but we'll forgive him because he's good-natured and everyone loves Darkwing Duck. Seriously, I can't find one person who doesn't. "Gosalyn's getting into the holiday spirit. For her that means 'snowball fights' and 'events inspired by snowball fights.'" "You do NOT want to see how Launchpad celebrates National Sandwich Day. Let's just say this kitchen would have fared better against Megavolt."

2) Batman (@God_Damn_Batman)

He follows no one. He retweets no one. He has six digits worth of followers. He tells it like it is, and he's awesome. If you're not following the God Damn Batman, you have no business being on Twitter. "The Batman MMO: I play the Batman. Everyone else plays a criminal. You get a 15 second headstart." "Hey hipster. Know where your fancy mustache and plastic glasses would look especially ironic? On my fists." "Launched a new charity to help keep ex-cons off the streets. It's called "Stay Off the Streets or You Get Beat in the Face with a Batarang.""

1) The Incredible Hulk

There are numerous Hulk tweets, possibly because Hulk accounts are easy to make. All caps, no definitive articles, everything usually fits in 140 characters, and usually funny even when not trying to be. Some of my favorites are Drunk Hulk (@DRUNKHULK) "LOT OF BIRD DROP DEAD IN ARKANSAS! THEN LOT OF FISH DIE! DRUNK HULK TERRIFY! SOMEWHERE OUT THERE IS CAT WITH ONE WISH LEFT!", Feminist Hulk (@feministhulk) "FEMINISM NOT EXIST IN VACUUM. HULK SMASH FOR ALL FORMS OF SOCIAL JUSTICE! HULK NO LET HEGEMONY SNEAK IN THE BACK DOOR." and Book Store Hulk (@BOOKSTOREHULK) "HULK DOESN'T READ BOOKS ABOUT READING. MAKES HULK TOO NERVOUS THINKING ABOUT OTHER BOOKS HULK SHOULD BE READING."
