"Star Wars" Minor Players Reflect on a Galaxy Not So Far Away in "Elstree 1976"
The Top 100 Comic Book Battles Countdown was a blast, but you know what, looking at the Top 25, I noticed that the list did not have a single battle between the Fantastic Four and Doctor Doom, the X-Men and Magneto, Batman and the Joker, Superman and Lex Luthor or Spider-Man and Doctor Octopus.
That’s probably because those characters have SO many good fights that they all split the vote (I know that happened with the two notable Wolverine and Sabretooth fights).
But these are the rivalries that everyone knows! These are the rivalries that keep people coming back for more! These are the rivalries that film franchises are built upon!
So I’ve decided to have a new countdown of just the Top rivalries that you folks like to see repeatedly – who do you like to see fight the most? Spider-Man and Green Goblin? Hulk and Wolverine? Batman and Joker? The Fantastic Four and Dr. Doom? Superman and Batman?
Vote for your top 10 top (and by top, I mean your favorite) comic book rivalries by 11:59 Eastern on January 21st, and we’ll reveal the Top 25 in a special feature on CBR soon after (and a little bit later, I’ll fill in the rest of the Top 100).
Simply list your top ten (and please pick 10 – less than ten and I won’t count any of your votes) from your top choice to your bottom choice, in the comments below (please include the word ACBC in the comment, that way your ballot will appear invisible to other readers).
Your top choice will be given 10 points, your second choice 9, etc.
Here are the following guidelines:
1. Vote for a specific rivalry from a comic book.
2. The match-up has to have occurred at least twice – so Hulk and Thor is okay, but not, say, Superman versus Thor – this list is for the fights that keep coming up over and over again because the fans keep clamoring for them! This is to celebrate Rogues Galleries (as well as those hero fights that are so fun to see, like Hulk versus Thing and Superman versus Batman).
3. List ten choices.
4. Remember, please include the following word: ACBC – on your ballot. It will make it so your ballot appears invisible to other readers, so only I can read it (and count your vote secretly).
Most importantly, have fun!
