Purpose and FunctionEdit
The Character of the Month was created as a way to "honor initiative among players and encourage more" in Feburary 2011. The community votes for a character that has done an impressive or note worthy thing that month. For this, they are awarded a custom plaque (typically having a link to the character) and recognition. There is no mechanical benefit for becoming the character of the month. Some characters have had food or drink named after them at Deadpool & Dante's Viewtiful Bar & Grill. A CotM does not have to be chosen every month.
A CotM was not chosen between May 2012 and December 2013. It returned in 2014, but one hasn't been chosen since February.
