Why Shrek made our list of powerful characters

''Shrek 2'''s whopping debut gross made the green ogre the current king of animation (sorry, Nemo!). While ''Shrek 3'' is a near certainty, it'll be interesting to see how many sequels DreamWorks can crank out, especially before the valuable vocal talents take a hike. Still, continued cross-generational interest spurred by videos, toys, and food tie-ins keeps His Ugliness fresh.
