"Neil Gaiman's top 10 mythical characters"

I was told about Lilith by my barmitzvah teacher as a boy: how she insisted on having sex on top, a crime so great that Adam was forced to disassociate himself from her, and how she did not mind and went off and had sex with demons instead, Adam being all there was in the way of men at the time. She also appeared never to have died, which meant that she sounded cooler than anyone else in the whole of Genesis. Even though she wasn't actually really even mentioned in Genesis.
