It's no secret Marvel movies are hilarious, but some wisecracks deserve a special mention. Which one do you think is the funniest? http://www.imdb.com/rg/s/1/list/ls069384234/

Hi Laiath and welcome to the GS poll board,

'Very good poll, especially with the quotes (applause, applause). I don't know if I've ever seen a Marvel movie (amazing, right?) and I definitely haven't seen any of the films with the characters on the list but, because of your quotes, my vote would probably go to Rocket Raccoon, although I have a few close seconds. 'Very funny.

I have one suggestion: Capitalize "Wisecracks" in the title. Not the least of the reasons is that it would qualify the poll for promotion on the homepage. That doesn't mean it would definitely be chosen for the livepage (that's a complicated thing for technical reasons), but it means it could at least be considered. I, for one, think this would make a good poll for the homepage. :-)

Thank you for the warmest welcome and the edit suggestion!  I've capitalized the W on the list, and I'm so happy to hear the quotes made sense even to someone who's not a fan of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.  I was wondering if they would still be funny if the scenes didn't immediately spring to one's mind, so thanks for that, as well!

Laiath,

As IMDb will no longer support character polls after December 6, I would advice you to, as soon as practical, re-create this poll and part 2 of this poll as image lists.

You can then post the new lists as suggestions in this thread:

I'm on it!  I was thinking of merging the front runners of the two existing Marvel wisecracks in a single image poll.  Do you know if there's anything against that?

Um so I'm trying to recreate this poll as an image list but the images just appear next to each other with no accompanying text unless i'm in edit mode. Is that normal?

Laiath,

"Normal" is not exactly the word I would use, but it is the way IMDb now implements image lists. If you click on any of the images, you can see the full images and comments. You can scroll through the list using the arrows to the left and right of the image.

The arrows appear when you hover the cursor over the image. You can toggle the text by clicking left clicking the image.

For instance, this what appears when I click the first image:

1 of 10
Rocket: Now *I'm* standing, y'all happy? We're all standing up now. Bunch of jackasses standing in a circle.

Titles:
Guardians of the Galaxy
People: Bradley Cooper

Ugh great. I was already unhappy with not having images from the exact moments the lines were spoken, and now with the full screen view the quotes look even less significant.  I guess I could go ahead and take the screenshots and add images and wait for them to be approved (like I did for my wordlessly funny movie scenes poll) and then revise the list, but I really don't know if it's worth it :/

oh by the way thanks for answering my question haha
