Of all the cult followings over the years, which is the most powerful and dedicated? Is it the Star Trek fans, Beliebers, Twihards or Bronies?

Two of the five cult followings explored here are space-related movie and television franchises, Star Wars and Star Trek. Science-fiction is notorious for attracting cult followings simply because of its futuristic nature. Not everyone is ready to completely embrace fantastical ideas about what technologies the future might hold, but those that do embrace them do it without reservation. The result of this behavior is popular fan cults that have entire conventions dedicated to the franchise.

Most recently, singer Justin Bieber has attracted a cult following of young fans who support everything he touches. Stats for Cult-Crazed Fan Infographics Trending: Older & Chilly
