Captain Mal Reynolds, star of cult TV series Firefly, unexpectedly beat The Doctor to top spot in a poll for sci-fi authority SFX.co.uk, which asked the public to vote for their favourite sci-fi hero.

More than 10,000 people took part and TV heroes, not film stars, emphatically came out on top.

Small screen stars including Torchwood’s enigmatic Captain Jack Harkness at number three, dominate the list. While Hollywood’s summer box office bankers Captain America, Green Lantern and Transformers’ Optimus Prime only just scrape into the top 100.

Iconic vampire slayer Buffy is the highest-ranked woman at number four, beating the likes of Amy Pond (Doctor Who), Hermione Granger (Harry Potter) and The X-Files’ Dana Scully.

Surprise omissions from the top 10 include Spider-Man (at 12), Darth Vader (13), Captain Kirk (17) and Batman (19).

Seven Doctor Who characters – and five from Harry Potter – make the top 100. Star Trek also gets five spots on the list, but Star Wars only two.

“Few people would have bet against Doctor Who topping this poll, but the surprise win for Mal Reynolds shows how much love there still is for Firefly,” says SFX Editor-in-Chief Dave Bradley. “Putting the top 100 icons to the vote really caught people’s imagination – sci-fi is more popular than ever before.”
