Witches have been beguiling audiences basically since there have been stories. Strange women with supernatural powers who often live outside of society — sometimes they’re good, sometimes they’re bad — but they always captivate our attention. There have been countless iconic witches in movies, TV, comic books, et. over the decades (hell, centuries). And now, the Great Pop Culture Debate podcast wants to light the black candle and summon the best pop-culture witch of all time — and we want YOUR opinions!
Below find a list of notable pop-culture witches. (You can also find the poll by clicking here.) For our purposes, we stuck almost exclusively to women (with a few notable exceptions) who were defined within their works as “witches,” and who did in fact have some kind of magical powers. Pick your favorite witches from the list — you can select as many as you like. NOTE: The list is randomized every time you take the form, so if you’re looking for a specific name, search by using Ctrl+F.
Did we miss your favorite witch? Add it to the form below; we may discuss them in the episode. Then please send the poll to your friends and have them chime in with their favorite witches. The more votes, the better balanced the bracket.
The poll will run until Friday, July 8. Make sure to submit your answer by then!
The 32 top vote-getters will be discussed in Season 6 of the Great Pop Culture Debate podcast, debuting in fall 2022. Find out more at greatpopculturedebate.com.
