SACRAMENTO -- Are you going to be Harley Quinn or the Joker for Halloween? You're not alone.

Google has updated its "Frightgeist" page for 2016, highlighting the most popular costumes both nationally and in the Sacramento-Stockton-Modesto region.

Given our current pop culture landscape, it should come as no surprise that comic book characters are the most popular.

Batman villains Harley Quinn and the Joker come in as the most and second-most popular, respectively, both in the whole country and in our area. The recent release of "Suicide Squad" probably has something to do with it.

Superhero is also trending nationally, so you might see quite a few Avengers, members of the Justice League and likely a Spider-Man or a Doctor Strange out trick or treating.

Here's the national Top 5:

  1. Harley Quinn
  2. Joker
  3. Superhero (DC, Marvel heroes)
  4. Pirate
  5. Wonder Woman

Here's the local Top 5:

  1. Harley Quinn
  2. Joker
  3. Vampire
  4. Pirate
  5. Pikachu
