Comic Book Team Tournament – X-Mansion Region, Round 3 Winners!

The third round of results are here!

All results are rounded to the nearest whole number, except when doing so would result in a tie.


Out of 1,186 votes, Morrison’s New X-Men upped the number from one dead to ALL dead with Vaughan/Alphona’s Runaways 64% to 36%…

Out of 1,180 votes, Claremont/Cockrum’s X-Men disagreed with Deathstroke as THEY take the credit for killing Wolfman/Perez’s Teen Titans 51% to 49%…


Is it fair to blame the New 52 for the Titans losing?

It’s tough to win a fight when you’ve been retconned out of continuity. :)

No. Titans were extremely good but not as good as the beginnings of the new X-Men.

Let’s face it: the New Teen Titans were specifically gathered to imitate the All-New X-Men’s uncanny success, and even if the Claremont/Byrne run cemented that success it really began with Claremont and Cockrum’s bold new directon. Even as a kid I could tell that DC was trying to replicate what worked so well at the competition.

Between an original and its copy, of course I voted for the original (and of course I know the X-Men were originally not created by Claremont/Cockrum, but C/C’s complete overhaul of that franchise with a far more diverse cast was a VERY original team concept for its time).

Man, I understand Runaways losing to New X-Men, and New X-Men is really great, but I’m not happy about it.
