Simple contest, the theme of which has run throughout many of the battle contests in some form or another. Pick two characters from different publishers who are OBVIOUS dopplegangers and have them fight it out. Is one an improvement on a tired idea, or is it impossible to beat the original? Really don't like the Sentry? have Supes take care of him. Want Thing and Badrock to knock each other's blocks off? go for it. Ultimate wolverine and 616 wolverine are still the same character, just alternate dimensions, so such a situation wouldn't work. But if you think Ripclaw is a Rip-off and want Logan to show him what's what, go for it. Want to revisit Deathstroke vs. Deadpool-why not. Bonus points (that don't count) for a small back story.
*if such a contest has been done before just let me know, and I'll change it (or if it needs to be two specific characters, happy to change).
Deadline: Sept. 12
