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.

please pin.

*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

@ssejllenrad: Ha ha ha. This is classic you. I always expect something funny when you're putting something on the vine! :D

@artiom1q2w: Hehe! I didn't realize it before as well. t was suggested by my nephew.

@deadpool1109: Hehe! Thanks... Though I never really understood why my "funny" stuff get more attention. I could be wrong but I believe the majority of my posts (including illustrations) are of the serious nature... Perhaps they're lame... Nyahahaha! :D

Honestly, I think comedy resonates with people. If I'm having a crappy day and I see a badass drawing of Galactus I may be impressed but it's not going to improve my mood. But a crappy day and you see something that makes you chuckle amid all the other things crapping up your day. That can be powerful and memorable. Comedy is a great way to express oneself.

Batman "Since my parents death I have been a symbol of the night, bringing justice to evildeors."

Daredevil "You stole my origin story."

Not sure if this counts because there not really that similar, I just thought their origin stories were a litlle close to eachother.

I kinda messed up on the Heads.

@47Taskmaster47: Haha! Such balls from Matt to point his finger right in the face of Bats. Hehe! I'd love to see how this fight ends.

That's true. And that is probably why we all remember ssejllenrad's funny stuff over his other art.

Also when I joined the artist forum on the vine I remember ssenjllenrad putting up the randomest things and making the funniest comments. So that's kinda stuck. :D

ok so here is my version. I'm posting two. The user behind behind this contest can pick whichever one he/she thinks looks better. Since I'm in office I can't colour it, so I used a software called pixlr.com/editor online and coloured or should I say tried to colour it

It's Black Adam vs Omni-man. (Both characters are Superman based in my opinion)

#23 Posted by Dbennett6684 (193 posts) - - Show Bio
