The Comic Vine 2013 Superhero Championship - PLAYOFFS!

It's now down to the final 2! Come support your favorite team to make sure they win!

HUZZAH FOR SPORTS! Plenty of people here in the United States are excited for the Super Bowl this Sunday (though I'm sure many just want to see the commercials), but truthfully, I'm not that big of a fan of the sport. Because of this, I thought we comic book fans deserved something similar. After some contemplation, the first ever Comic Vine Superhero Championship was born! Since there was so little time before the Big Game, I had to keep the bracket small -- 4 teams from Marvel, 4 teams from DC. However, next year it will definitely be a bigger bracket!

The first two rounds of voting have come and gone and now only 2 teams remain... THE AVENGERS AND THE BAT FAMILY!

I know many of you will overlook this anyway, but I need to remind you THIS ISN'T A PHYSICAL CONTEST. It's simply voting for the team you like more!

Click the follow link to vote:

Batman Family vs. Avengers

This is the big game, people. Root for your team and be sure to spread the word to bring in more votes!

Voting will be open until Saturday night!


And the winner of the first Comic Vine Superhero Championships is...


The Batman Family defeated the Avengers and took 57.9% of the votes in the final round.

Next year I'll be sure to set this up sooner so I can make a bigger bracket. Thanks for voting!

How long has this been going on and why was X-Men eliminated in the first round?!!

I like the Bat fam!

I just cannot deal with the preposterous obsession with Batman anymore. Yes he is awesome, but some people treat like a quasi-religous figure who must be worshipped.

The first round started Monday and the X-Men narrowly lost against the Batman Family.

My heart is simply divided by this so im gonna pick who's powerful...... The bat family may be stronger together but none of w/c can surpass the powers of the avenger powerhouses so..... Avengers it is...

It's obvious these teams would be in the championship...the avengers movie made everyone jump on that band wagon, and everyone loves batman.

I can't help but feel some of the votes were won (on the Avengers side) because of the Avengers movie.
