Wolverine in X-Men The Last StandX-Men's violent mutant Wolverine has topped a poll of fictional power players, beating off stiff competition from boy wizard Harry Potter and comic book-hero-turned-movie icon Spider-Man. The survey, conducted by Entertainment Weekly, sees Hugh Jackman's character destroy a string of high-grossing film and TV rivals. The result boosts Jackman's chances of fronting a spin-off solo movie for his character.

Cartoon bad boy Bart Simpson enters the list at just ninth position, while reserved The Da Vinci Code academic Robert Langdon is a surprise choice at number five. Only one female character is included in the chart - Tyler Perry's motor-mouth grandmother Madea.

The top ten fictional power players are as follows:

1. Wolverine
2. Harry Potter
3. Spider-Man
4. Shrek
5. Robert Langdon
6. Jason Bourne
7. James Bond
8. Jigsaw
