These three are arguably the most iconic characters when one thinks of movie characters with...? Claws? Scissor hands? Needle... hands? Well, we can't quite put a finger on it.

Which of the three will claw their way to the top?

"The creature from the black lagoon"

The birds in "The Birds"
Catwoman (purr-fect),


Marvel's Black Panther: http://www.imdb.com/character/ch00365...
The Wolfman or any werewolf try the characters from Twilight or "The Howling" or "An American Werewolf In London'
Lo-Mai from any film version of "The Island Of Dr. Moreau". Don't forget that H.G.Wells novel has a scientist fooling around with animal and human DNA. http://www.imdb.com/character/ch00586...

Of those 3 I would vote for Wolverine - The "X-Men" franchise.

Question for IMDb editors/champions: Reason for my making this a Face-Off vs. normal Poll suggestion was two-fold: 1. I thought in a fully exhausted poll idea, these three characters would take majority votes by a landslide and 2. This poll already existed -> www.imdb.com/poll/tvtaiGbU7CY/ and I thought there'd be too much overlap. I may change it but for now, it is a Face-off!

Ok, me bad. I misunderstood. But note: most of that list dealt with mythical creatures that are animals. Namely Dragons. Most of what I suggested has a human element ot it or a human dressing up like animal with claws. You are talking about humans or human like beings with claws. The only overlap that I can see is "The Creature From The Blacl Lagoon", "Nosferatu", and Pale Man.
Oh catwoman can't complete with wolverine and Edward sisscorshamds? Guess again.

'Good call, Kyle. I think this works well as a face-off, plus these three were not on Simba's list, and keeping it as a face-off keeps it from being too similar to Simba's. Oh, and yes, I also think that, like you said, in a full length poll, these three would get the vast majority of the votes and limiting it to three makes it much more competitive.

I'm wondering if what these three characters have are exactly claws -- I don't know what they are exactly, lol -- but I can't think of a more fitting word... so "claws" works, I think.

Yeah. I don't think claws works as two of the three of them def. don't have them and Wolverine is borderline.

Maybe something about fingers for the title?

"Can't quite put a finger on it"?

"Let's finger this out"?

I'm not coming up with anything really good, I'll think about it. But "Characters with Claws"? No.

Update: Title has been changed to

Can't quite put a finger on it

How should I rephrase the question at hand, now?

Rubyfruit , the correct address is http://www.imdb.com/poll/3t5cE3PD6g0/... . Yours is to the results page which is still cool to post as it can give one ready access to the results without going through the whole process of the poll page then to result page. Instant handicapping .

Kyle, I don't know why I didn't say this before, but I suggest a slight revision to "adamantium claws" for Wolvie. Otherwise, cool poll - glad you used one of my suggestions. :)
