Worst Mary Sue I have read--
I can't remember her name, but it was a Treasure Planet fic. FMC was some random teenage US female with a lonely social life and a half-way strict mom (who actually seems like a decent lady but the author makes her out to be a monster). She magically finds herself outside Jim's inn, gets taken in, they fall madly in love, and she goes sailing with him on a ship he captains where there are (oh wonder of wonders) two adorable little orphan kids she can go all maternal over. Then she gets kidnapped by pirates who had apparently killed Jim's father. Meh. Besides being over the top, it was badly written, and it dragged on forever.

Best Mary Sue I have read--
Luthien Tinuviel. She has plenty of the hallmarks--love at first sight, beauty beyond the lot of mere mortals, magical singing, minimal fleshing out on her personality--but I still love her. Maybe it's because she belongs to Tolkien.

You forget--her body doesn't win him, it's her unusually tasty smell. Wink
Although half the guys in her school seem to be unaccountably tripping over themselves for her, so yeah. >.<
