Coolest is an adjective--it can't be the subject. Also, words can't be objects of subjects--they are objects of verbs or prepositions. I can understand a case for "characters" being the subject because of the whole how things get reversed in questions thing, but that still doesn't make "whom" in this question an object. It's been a long time since I studied grammar so I don't remember exactly what it's called, but the situation of "identity" where the structure is Noun/pronoun is/are noun/pronoun is not a structure in which one of those nouns/pronouns is an object.

Correct (per standard English): Who is going to the party? Who is the most fun person? Who are the cutest girls in the room? You wouldn't use "Whom" in those sentences.

For other examples of pronouns with a different form when they are objects, think of he and him, she and her, they and them. It's a little trickier to see the connection since "who" and whom are interrogative--so they only show up in questions, not basic statements so the word order makes it less obvious. Plus, in reality "whom" is a bit old-fashioned and doesn't get used very often in common speaking and can sound awkward even when it is used correctly, but here are some examples of how these different subject/object forms might be used.

He is going to a party. I am going with him.
She is a fun person. I talked to her today.
They are really cute. I want to look at them for hours.
Who is going shopping? With whom will you go shopping?
Who are the coolest characters? About whom are you talking? I'm talking about the ones whom I admire.

Okay, I'm off my grammar podium, and I'll shut up now. (Yeah, I almost became an English teacher.)

In no particular order, Kisame, Neji, Kiba, and Shino.

So sad that the last two have been so underused.
Such wasted potential for badassery.

personally i prefer menma, but he's dead. my favorite main is shikamaru.

i thought hinata started to get cool when she used the lion fist, but she was crushed so neji outranks her.

kekkaishi is probably the coolest of them all but he's been downgraded recently.

lol with the whom, i guess thats your attention grabber, but i gatta say it: wrong usage. im no better with the usage but thats when who is worldly accepted.
