The Better Character from the ZooTV Era

I personal love Macphisto and his humor and calling important figures and non figures only to be hung up on or laughed at.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I liked Macphisto as a character, but not much as a singer, he ruined WOWY...

MacPhisto, without doubt. Easily the smartest, most literary character in music history.

"ya know somethin'? you're FOOKIN' BEAUTIFUL!!!" If you want to know what Zoo TV was all about, Mirrorball Man shows it the best For me he was most fun to watch, just check Desire from Zoo TV bonus DVD, instant classic, probably the definitive version of the song. This is truely something you can really call spectacular. Also he sang Desire in much better way than Macphisto did, at least you could call it singing, not declaming. "I have a vision! I have a vision! TELEVISION!!!"

Macphisto was the most fully-developed, but I just love the Fly.

Mirrorball Man was a better performer of those specific songs, but MacPhisto was a much better character.

Macphisto had depth and multiple dimensions. So much more to that character than Mirrorball Man.
