1) Pepe the Frog
This frog is a fringe comic character, created by artist Matt Furie in 2005, who was best known for being an internet meme until this year when he was co-opted by the so-called ‘alt-right’. After that Pepe became the face of the group known for white supremacism, anti feminism and more.
So why is he the most influential? Not sure…
I thought it too: Barbie made a comeback? Turns out, the 57-year-old doll reinvented herself this year when Mattel introduced a bunch of different body types, including curvy and petite.
No secret that Deadpool was huge. It was the highest grossing R-rated film ever worldwide. So that’s all you really need for an explanation.
4) Barb from ‘Stranger Things’
5) Harley Quinn
7) Daenerys Targaryen from ‘Game of Thrones’
8) Joanne the Scammer (???)
9) Elena Ferrante (an author)
10) Ginga, who is a mascot from the Rio Olympics
