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!

***UPDATE***

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

THE BATMAN FAMILY!

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!

I concur.

It's because of the Bane he is powerful and he brings all the Bats together.

Also I'm really getting tired of all the X-fans popping up waaaaaaaay after the fact when I tried to desperately rally them together to win.

The Avengers have Hawkguy, so The Avengers gets my vote.

So I'm calling "shenanigans".

How come the 1st round got over 48 hrs of vote time but the 2nd round gets way less than 48 hrs? If the same time limit was given to the 1st round that the 2nd round had, the X-men would've beat the Bats!

It's a conspiracy, I tell ya'..... A CONSPIRACY!!!!! :)

Bat Family!!

Avengers vs Bat-Family. Well I wish I could say this was an unforeseen finale. Batman's movie is more recent so they will win. Predictable.

Posted by Jawshco

You're all too late. The Bat-fans are far too prepared and cannot be defeated. We've got the Hulk repellent, LOL!

Collusion!

Why am I not surprised? I guessed the finalists on day one, thats why they need a bigger bracket next time.

The Family is going to Win  Why?  Because He's BATMAN!  (+)
Posted by Decoy Elite

I really hope the people complaining aren't all serious.

Posted by LordRequiem

@Decoy Elite: What was your attempt to rally them? Writing "please vote x-men"? Because I voted for them and I didn't need you to tell me to.

Avengers always win.

Posted by Decoy Elite

@LordRequiem: I posted a thread to counter the Bat thread.

Posted by GothamRed

Picking Bat-Family

Posted by nappystr8

It was clear that the Batman family was going to win the second I saw that they were easily beating the X-Men. The bat family isn't really even a real team. There are fine characters in the Batman family, but I just don't understand how people can love them this much...but I guess the people have spoken, and it's not like this contest actually effects my life.

@Shika1Dude: Not really

Easily beating them? When I wanted the voting to end it was 50/50 with 600+ votes.  I left it open for another 45 minutes or so (to get dinner) and said I'd close it when I came back.  I did just that and the end ratio was 50.1% / 49.9%

WELP, you should have voted.

And if you did then you should have got more people to vote.

The size of the bracket is discussed in this OP and was in the comments section of the last round.

@Decoy Elite said:

It amuses me.

"THIS OUTCOME WAS OBVIOUS!"

Says it was obviously going to be JLA vs Avengers days ago.

"THE BATMAN FAMILY? THAT'S STUPID!"

Yeah, it's not like they have an awesome roster of characters each sporting their own books and have teamed up numerous times in the New 52.

"BATMAN IS OBVIOUSLY GOING TO WIN THIS IS LAME."

Doesn't make an effort to cheerlead for the Avengers and bring in more votes.

"THIS BRACKET IS TOO SMALL."

Still hasn't read OP.

While the complaints are certainly vocal, I'd like to believes there's more people actually enjoying this feature. I have so many more community voting things planned, too :)

I would had pick the Bat family, but I plain and simply hate Damian, as Robin, as the future Batman, and all his other nickname, I miss the pre-Damian Batman, I so miss Jean-Paul Valley.

@k4tzm4n: Glad to hear that actually. I don't think it was that close when I cast my vote.

Posted by Decoy Elite

@k4tzm4n: I'm loving it myself. Especially with the CB heading the Bat fans to war.

Yes, I understand they had a solid lead at first but I was very pleased to see it was an extremely tight race.

See, he's doing it right! This thread should be all about rooting for your favorite team and trying to bring in more votes... not being grumpy and complaining. And thank you :D

@k4tzm4n: I tried saving the X-Men and I'll try and get the Avengers up, but moral is low due the sheer power of the Bane.

The Avengers needs their own Captain America on the Vine to rally the troops.

WHO WILL ANSWER THE CALL TO MAKE THIS A CLOSE RACE?

I refuse to let the final round of voting be a stomp.
