'Which actor do you consider the most iconic?'

Something or someone is either an icon or not.  One can't be more or less iconic, any more than something can be more or less unique.

Elvis Presley is an icon, but he is no more or less an icon than Humphrey Bogart. One's opinion doesn't enter into it.

Icon: "very famous or popular, especially being considered to represent particular opinions or a particular time"

Which brings me to my second problem. One cannot ask any individual about someone or somethings iconic status as that status is reflected by popularity and consensus that is already established. It is not up for debate. 

'Most memorable', 'favourite', 'best', 'greatest' and many others are all acceptable as they are debatable as a matter of personal opinion.

Great poll tho! :)
