TV's 50 hottest supernatural beings, superhumans, aliens, and cyborgs (PART 1)

See also

Over the years, there have been many vampires, werewolves, witches, aliens, cyborgs, and superhumans on television. And let’s face it: most of the time these characters are rather attractive--sometimes very much so, as is evidenced by the following list!

Though this list will count down 50 of the hottest vampires, werewolves, witches, aliens, cyborgs, and superhumans ever to be on TV, this particular article only lists the first 25. Click here to see the second article, which lists numbers 26-50!

Since there have been so many of these characters—especially recently—one (or more) of your favorites may be missing from the list. If that’s the case and you feel it’s an egregious snub, be sure to mention it in the comments. Your comment may be used in a following article!

Once again, be sure to check out the second half of the list, which you can find HERE.
