The Comic Vine 2013 Superhero Championship - ROUND 2!

Round 2 of voting is now underway! Go support your favorite team!

As you likely know, there's this big thing coming up here in the United States called the Super Bowl. I'm not really a big fan of the sport, but I figured we comic fans deserve an equivalent!  So, I went ahead and picked 8 teams -- 4 from Marvel and 4 from DC -- and started the bracket earlier this week.   
 
Thankfully, the turnout was massive and winners have been declared.  We can now begin round 2 of voting!  

REMEMBER, VOTING IS NOT BASED ON WHICH TEAM WOULD WIN IN A PHYSICAL CONTEST. IT'S SIMPLY VOTING FOR THE TEAM YOU LIKE MORE!

Voting for this round will end this Friday.

@Jonny_Rogers: Actually X-Men were winning until a certain Bat fan rallied the Bat fans to rush the polls.

@Decoy Elite: That's kind of my point. For every fan of the Batman films is a thousand haters that think Batman gets too much exposure... Why isn't this the same for the X-Men? How has it got to the stage where the franchises are even compared?

@Jonny_Rogers: You don't understand. The Bat fans have gone to war. 
Every other team is doomed because it's fans aren't as united to take down the competition. 
THE BATS COME THIS WAY AND WE ARE ALL DOOMED!

The Bat family beat the X-men? Riiiiiiiight.

@Decoy Elite: I'll give you that...  
I know that this Championship is supposed to be nothing more than harmless fun, but I'm just a little annoyed that the entire industry seems to be insistent on comparing and fighting with each other. Isn't it ironic that this championship is devoted to people working together, but is somehow dividing even more?

@Jonny_Rogers: This is all for good fun, it's not really serious.

Yup. Mostly because these aren't fights.

Wow, X-men v Batman Family says 50/50 (and currently says X-Men is the leader...).

At the time the thread was locked Bat family was winning by one. 
The X-fans jumped in too late.

Guardians of the Galaxy got beat by a bunch of teenagers...

@Decoy Elite: Gotcha, they should have challenged the call :P. Thanks.

@weaponx: I tried to call the X-Men fans to arms, I even brought in the raindrops. But it was not enough. 
The Bats are too powerful.

Most likely Bat-Family vs. Avengers in the final....and that could go either way. (Avengers will probably win.)

PS - Wow. Marvel got smashed in the first round.

@Decoy Elite: Maybe you should get some of your X-Men friends to vote for the Justice League to beat the Bat family. Let's just say I was expecting the X-Men to beat the bats.

Posted by Decoy Elite

@Mia26: Nah, someone should probably make a "Kill the bats" thread on the JLA board though.

Batman for the win, he brought some guns just in case!

Avengers over Teen Titans.

Justice League over Batman.

And WHY does Batman get his own team instead of simply being included in the JLA team? That's retarded!

Ok seriously can we just skip to JL versus Avengers already........

Thanks for the polite feedback! 
 
And because the Bat-Family consists of an entirely different roster of characters that people love (Red Hood, Nightwing, Batgirl, Damian, Red Robin, Alfred, etc).

Batman will win. The bat family is just icing on the cake (very nice icing though).
