The Comic Vine 2013 Superhero Super Bowl

Vote to make sure your favorite team takes home the trophy!

Apparently there's thing big thing called the "Super Bowl" coming up here in the United States. I can't say I'm a huge fan of the sport, but I thought to myself, "Why can't we comic book fans have an equivalent?" So, I present to you...

Comic Vine's first SUPERHERO SUPER BOWL!

Behold the raw power of Microsoft Paint!

The rules are simple: 8 teams enter, 1 team leaves as champions. The winner will be determined by you. There's no guideline for how you need to vote. This isn't based on which team has the better book or which would win in a fight... it's as easy as voting for the team you simply want to win!

Now go vote (click the links below!) to help your team win the first round!

I remember seeing a lot of people saying "___ should have won!" over at the Comic Vine Movie Awards, so now is your chance to make sure you're not disappointed again. Go help spread the word about this and hopefully you'll also boost your team's chances of winning!

The second round of voting will begin this Wednesday!

GO GREAT LAKES AVENGERS!

Wait, I didn't include them? Darn.

each team needs a roster. JLA, who? X-men? Avengers, everyone in the marvel universe is an avenger now...

Surely you dont mean any and all members.

You're just picking which team you like the most. 
It's not a fight or anything.

prediction: Avengers vs JL for the title

Posted by JakeN7

I really like this idea, but it's pretty hard to pick favorites.

I cast my votes. DC-2 Marvel-2

Justice League vs. Fantastic Four

Batman Family vs. X-Men

Teen Titans vs. Guardians of the Galaxy

Green Lantern Corps vs. Avengers

The ones I voted for are bolded. I put my reasons for each vote in the individual threads.

Me too. I like this idea and hope it stays fresh and interesting.

oooohhh spiffy

Posted by SexualLobster

I like how they put Avengers and Justice league very opposite from eachother :P

Posted by lorex

Justice League, X-Men, Guardians, Green Lantern Corps

If you look at the powers in the X-Men there is no way they should loose to the Bat Family. People will say that the Bat Family could out think the X-Men, but by that same logic you could say Reed Richards should be able to out think the Justice League. Also there is no way the Avengers should be able to beat the Green Lantern Corps, just way too much power. As for the Tean Titans vs Guardians of the Galaxy, my Marvel bias may be coming through here.

I'll definitely do a best costume category for next year's Movie Awards (you know, assuming Tony still thinks I'm worth keeping around :P)

Haha,  I would have loved to make each a 5 man team or so and then turn it into "which team would win in a game of American football?"  But: 
  1. My knowledge on football is minimal and that concept is probably way more complex than this one (which is just WHO DO YOU LIKE THE MOST?!?).
  2. There would be severe balancing issues.
  3. Even if I did my best to keep it balanced, I imagine there would still be quite a few people thinking there was bias because certain characters were or weren't included.

Things seem kinda lopsided and biased. Example FF should have gone against GL. & Avengers would have been more even with JL. At the current rate it will be a DC vs. Avengers.

Edited by k4tzm4n

If this was "biased" then I'm pretty sure I wouldn't put the team I'm rooting for (Bat-family) against the X-Men right away.

If this was biased it'd be Deadzone vs Cardiac vs Shocker.

Team "Who the hell are these guys?" would win in a landslide.

Working on my reviews first then once that's all set I'll lock the polls and post the next round ASAP.  It'll definitely be within a few hours at most.

I'll pay you under the table if you lock the poll when X-Men are winning.

@k4tzm4n: Oh no you don't, we were winning all day, you can't just take the poll out from under me! 
We were winning! 
Posted by k4tzm4n
@Decoy Elite: I haven't checked the polls, but I'd say there's a good 15 minutes or so until I lock them.
