AMC's adaptation of Joe Hill's novel NOS4A2 has a memorable cast of characters who have found themselves caught in a world more terrifying than they can imagine. Some of the best NOS4A2 characters have supernatural abilities while others are far too human.

Immortal Charlie Manx (Zachary Quinto) feeds the souls of children to his 1938 Rolls-Royce Wraith to maintain his youth. When he's done with them Manx traps their husks in Christmasland, a place where unhappiness is against the law. Both Victoria "Vic" McQueen (Ashleigh Cummings) and Maggie Leigh (Jahkara Smith) have unusual powers - Maggie uses Scrabble tiles to find out information and Vic can navigate a covered bridge on her motorbike and arrive at any destination she is seeking. Along with other characters, such as Vic's parents and Manx's assistant, they're caught in a struggle to survive.

The son of Stephen King, Joe Hill continues and expands upon his father's horror history by twisting the traditional tales of vampires into something fresh.  Check out this list of the main characters of AMC's NOS4A2 and vote up the most memorable characters.
