Suggestion: Bishonen Line get usage counts

Current image is pretty bad. I suggest this, from Manly Guys Doing Manly Things:

No, the other one.
I don't think it's an improvement.

How does this:

Say "As the power of an evil creature increases, they become more of a large, disfigured abomination — until they cross the Bishonen Line, beyond which as they gain more power, they (re)gain humanoid form." any better?

No, the other one.
The last one is the most humanoid.

They're all humanoid, while still being weird and freakish. It's pretty unclear.
Most.

Huck: What's your name? The Mysterious Stranger: Satan.

No, the other one.
The first one doesn't have a mouth, the second one looks like the Creature from the Black Lagoon, and the last looks mostly humanoid with a sort of crown.

It's a clear transition from a completely alien-looking creature to something that is at least reasonably human-like, at least in the face. With that, I'm voting Keep Until Better Image Suggested...the suggestion is good but not necessarily a staggering improvement.

Clock is set.
New picture is greatly superior, though the size is an issue.

I think the new picture is greatly inferior. It doesn't suggest a transition from multiple stages, the last one being the most human. It suggests some sort of weird mutation thing to some sort of angel thing. The Cell one has a clear transition to more and more humanoid, which makes it obvious what we're supposed to be looking at.

In fact, looking at the new picture and the title did not help me to guess what trope this was—once I saw the Cell picture I knew what it meant. This one just confused me.

Wait, are 3 supposed to all be the same character?

I like Cell, though Arrows could make it clearer

[up]Yes. By strength, from weaker (Less humanoid) on top, to strongest (Most humanoid) at the bottom

[up] Arrows might help, but I don't think they're necessary.

No, the other one.
Especially as the caption does the pointing.

Clock's up; locking for inactivity/lack of consensus. No action is to be taken based on this thread.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
