NOTE: Please remember to cast your vote in the poll on the left-hand side. <------

Joker:



The Joker is a master criminal with a clown-like appearance. He is literally a killer clown, driven by a disordered mind to pursue destruction and chaos with as much panache as possible. For Joker, each transgression he commits is an elaborate joke in which he tries to leave his victims dying with laughter - literally.

Holy utility belt! Are all of the new iStock releases a part of a grand joke? There have been reports of users doing searches on "photocopier", "french flag", and "easter bunny" and coming away laughing. Is this just the beginning?

Riddler



The Riddler is is obsessed with riddles, puzzles, and word games.

Is the new tagging system a riddle that will overtake the microstock world? What does it mean? Are the deleted posts a part of the plot? How can it be solved?

Egghead:



Egghead considers himself to be the "the world's smartest criminal".

Are the new searches too difficult for the average human to figure out? Is this one of Eggheads egg-streme and egg-cessive crimes? Are we all doomed?

Mr. Freeze:



Mr. Freeze is a mad scientist who plots his crimes around ice and cold.

Has iStock been frozen solid? Will it thaw in time for the Christmas season?

Peebert:

No image available.

Peebert wields the hammer and is known to lock a thread faster than the original poster can hit the Submit button.  Has he gone too far this time?


Bitter:

No image available.

Bitter is the former owner of iStock, but it has been reported that he has turned to the dark side (as his name implies).  Is he out to make everyone else as bitter as he is?

Can someone please call the Commissioner to put up the bat-sign so that order and justice will prevail...

This microstock business is a nuisance. Make it go away.

It looks like the Joker is in the lead followed by a two-way tie between the Riddler and Getty...
