Wrote the following question when there were only two options in the following poll suggestion:
Which of these perpetually drunk gunslingers is a better shot?
Quote:
Which of these perpetually drunk gunslingers is a better shot?

1. Kid Shelleen
Cat Ballou (1965), Lee Marvin
2. Jim
Blazing Saddles (1974), Gene Wilder
3.Doc Holliday
Tombstone (1993),Val Kilmer
4. Rooster Cogburn (Jeff Bridges) from True Grit (2010)




It subsequently expanded to 4 options. Never crossed my mind that the question probably might be grammatically awkward now (now that it's been published). Does better work for more then two nouns/objects in a qualitative comparison in a sentence. Should I just change it to Which of these perpetually drunk gunslingers is the best shot?

Yeah, better works--asking who is best is actually an entirely different question.
