This is full of ****

This tier list should commit an hero immediately, followed by being beaten to death before it's own an hero-ing by a gang of midget clowns armed with two foot horse phallus shaped dildoes. Whoever wrote it should do the same directly afterwards. And anyone related to them, past present and future.

This tier list is garbage.
