DC/Marvel Tourney, DC Street Level Region, Round 2

The second round of voting continue now!

Simply choose which characters you think would win in a (non “to the death”) fight in the following match-ups. The voting concludes 96 hours from right now!

Each competitor has, let’s say, a half hour to prepare (so it’s not like Hawkman just walking up to Lex Luthor and hitting him with a mace – Luthor would be prepared), and can use whatever weaponry you figure would be typical for that character (so Hawkman can use whatever weapons you would expect him to normally use, but he can’t go get, I dunno, the Infinity Gauntlet, or whatever). In this particular poll, we’re using the new 52 versions of the characters. Also, a quick word on prep-time. When I say “prepare,” I really mean planning. They can’t, like, do anything to the place where they fight or anything like that. They can just quickly prepare for their opponent.

Enjoy!

DC/Marvel Tourney, Marvel Street Level, Round 2

The second round of voting begins now!

Simply choose which characters you think would win in a (non “to the death”) fight in the following match-up. The voting concludes 96 hours from right now!

Each competitor has, let’s say, a half hour to prepare (so it’s not like Mr. Fantastic just walking up to Captain American and punching him – Cap would be prepared), and can use whatever weaponry you figure would be typical for that character (so Deadpool can use whatever weapons you would expect him to normally use, but he can’t go get, I dunno, the Infinity Gauntlet, or whatever). A word on prep-time – this only means that they have time to prepare. They can’t affect the area where they will fight or anything like that. Or lay traps or whatever. They just have a half hour to get ready.

Enjoy!

For this particular poll, we’re using the current New 52 version of each character (and as I noted before, if a character is currently dead, just treat them as if they are alive).

For this particular poll, by the way, Jean Grey does not have her Phoenix powers. If she did, she’d be a much higher seed.

Comics Should Be Good’s 6th Annual March Madness!!

Welcome to the 2014 DC/Marvel Comic Character Tournament!

As the NCAA basketball tournament goes along, so will a series of polls matching various comic book characters against each other. This year, we’re mixing it up. Instead of voting based on who is your favorite, you’ll be voting on who you think would win in a fight.

The characters I am using are the top 32 characters on each of the DC and Marvel Top 100 Characters List from a couple of years back (with a few omissions – I removed characters who are not in the New 52 for DC). You might differ with some of the rankings or the brackets (a particularly tricky one is differentiating between the low end of “Heavy Hitter” and the high end of “Street Level”). Let’s just take for granted that you will differ and save the time of saying, “A #6 seed? Character X should be a #4 seed!” or whatever, and just vote on what the Selection Committee came up with (especially since I’m not going to be changing anything).

Here are the four regions!!

Here is the tournament bracket – click on it to get the full bracket and feel free to print it out if you’d like (I doubt it fits on one page though).

Bracket

Each competitor has, let’s say, a half hour to prepare (so it’s not like the Hulk just walking up to Lex Luthor and smacking him – Luthor would be prepared), and can use whatever weaponry you figure would be typical for that character (so Punisher can use whatever guns you would expect him to normally use, but he can’t go get, I dunno, the Infinity Gauntlet, or whatever). These are not “to the death” fights, by the way. And if a character is currently dead, just act like the fight happened while they were alive.

Here are the first two regions up for voting!
