All right, knock down drag out fight time! Ok, well not so much, but I thought this thread needed to be brought into existence. Let us know who you like better, and why. Rebuttals are allowed. For instance, if you tell me that you prefer Raoul because Erik's a creepy stalker, I'm going to refer you to Leroux where Raoul listens at Christine's door, hides in her dressing room to spy on her, and tails her to her father's grave.
You need to be able to back up any and all arguments with source materials. I.E. books, movies, shows, etc. This will save on people just randomly flinging "I like X because Y suxx!"
Anyhow, I am all about Erik. He's a little psycho, but he kind of has a right to be. I mean, if your mother refused to even LOOK at you, you were exhibited as a freak through most of your youth, and you were a politically appointed executioner for a very bloody empire, you'd be a little screwy too. All things considered I think that he's actually pretty well adjusted....ish....
