Nice PS LDP!!!

My vote - Imhotep.

The title:

Face-Off: Imhotep vs. Ahmanet

Would be simple, small and better I guess. And the "Universal pictures mummy..." line you are already mentioning in the description, so that will not be a problem.

I agree with Dibby: 'good face-off!  Perhaps it needs to mummify just another week or two until people get a chance to see the 2017 film. I actually just saw the 1999 movie last night for the first time so I guess he'd get my vote.

FYC:
Mummy Face-Off: Imhotep vs. Ahmanet  ('Keeps it short but without the "Mummy," I doubt enough people would recognize the names. With "Mummy," it's likely to attract a lot more voters.) :-)

I think we both forgot one. He too is in a 21st century film. The Emperor Han, as played by Jet Li, in "The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor" (2008)

To me, I'd would have liked it if you had included Karloff's (1932) "The Mummy" http://www.imdb.com/character/ch00026... (the picture of the monster is awesome), and http://www.imdb.com/character/ch00026... and http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0023245/?...


And Hammer's revamp of the character in "The Mummy" (1959)http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0053085/?... . The mummy was played by Christopher Lee and was named "Kharis" , http://www.imdb.com/character/ch00527... , and http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0053085/m...

LDP,

Dg has a good point. It'll better if we make it a 3-way face-off.

Imhotep is technically 20th century, isn't he? 1999?

I like the classic mummies the best, I would go Ahmanet from the more recent crop.

Anck Su Namun was a mummy too.   She wasn't the main mummy character though.  I think I should leave here out.

No, Include her. She was pretty evil too. As I said, she had used Imhotep. She was an amoral asocial character and not an immoral character. She was the worst of the two because an immoral character knows the difference between right and wrong and chooses to do wrong on certian things. An ammoral asocial character is concerned about only himself and doesn't know the difference between right and wrong. His/her definition of right and wrong is good is whatever gets them what they want and wrong is whatever stops them. Anck Su Namun wanted power, eternal life and eternal beauty, and she used Imhotep to get it.

LDP,

Your list at this moment is fine.

Mummy Face-Off: Imhotep Vs. Ahmanet Vs. Emperor Han

All main antagonists from the Mummy films.

No need to add Anak-Su-Namun.

Congratulations on the poll. I went for Han and gave him his first vote. Why? Because I figured no body else would vote for him and I wanted to be different. He was different - Chinese, not Egyptian like the other two.

  Me too.  I changed my vote from Imhotep to Han since Imhotep was in the lead.  Thank you for suggestions, Han made this poll more interesting.
