The Fly.  Leather-clad Bono.  Also self-explanatory.

While all three were great, I have to say MacPhisto.

Mirrorball Man was interesting with his mockery, but I just felt like Bono wasn't into it much. And The Fly was leather-clad and awesome and adequately mocked rock stars, but I think MacPhisto has the edge on The Fly for best overall. It was the character that had the most interaction on stage and meaning, in my opinion.

LOL. 
Mmmhmm. ;)
I'm going with MacPhisto. He cracks me up.
Gotta love the schizophenic rock star complex. It can make for interesting music/entertainment.

I love the Mirrorball Man. I wish Bono would've used that persona a bit more.

Just thinking about all these 'characters' reminds me of how brilliant the Zoo TV/Zooropa tour really was. :)

Mr MacPhisto was the best, a true European renaissance man. He was way too decadent for American audiences. ;)

Oh come on, it was only for one tour.  Bono felt he had to distance himself from Bono for a little while. :D

The Fly and Mr. Macphisto are really close, but Macphisto wins.

I actually like The Fly better than Macphisto character-wise, but Bono did a better job "acting" Macphisto. The accent, the makeup, the clothes... he literally became a different person when he put on the costume.

Also, I like the songs Macphisto got to sing. :D

I <3 The Fly, but MacPhisto's pretty cool too. Haven't seen much of Mirrorball Man, so hard to say on that one.
