This is a Idea I came up with and even though I am running the Zombie Tourney, I really wanted to start this one up too.

So what are the rules? Easy enough. No Reality Warpers, Time Control, or Uncounterable Powers. characters can be nerfed of Reality Warping, Time Control, or Uncounterable powers if need be. Other than that, the standard is Spider Man/ Classic Luke Cage or lower.

The big rule is they must not be White Caucasian heroes. I say this for obvious reasons, 90% of the popular heroes are that lol. That is why I thought it would be neat to focuses and debate the non stereotypical ones. My contribute to Spanish/African History Months. This is not to be meant as racial or hating on minority thread, do not want to play, then dont!

This will include Africans, Native Americans, Asians, Hispanic, Aliens (who are not Cacassians like Superman, I mean of all the Aliens in the universe and he looks like the 50s poster child!), ect. Rule of thumb is they cannot be White Caucasians. I will allow characters like say Nightcrawler for example, he may be a White Eruopean German origin, but he is apart of Marvels Racial tension as a blue fur mutant, he was born different in so many ways. So that is allowed as well.

Accepting Comic, Manga, and Video Game characters.

Okay, without any more rambling, pick 2 characters of Ethnic Diverse background that are within the rules above.

Example of this is like my Team.

Liara T'Soni and Spawn (Classic)

I'd say Bleach people are too fast/strong. They're at least building busters (like even Lieutenants) and range to city busters.

@darkraiden: @darkraiden: so are Vice Captain or below allowed from Bleach?

Not too familiar with them....the important thing is are they (are you going to argue them) below mach 3-4, below 20-25 tons of strength, and below building buster?

just had to check. the parameters where mentioning time and reality warpers. Since I know you follow anime/manga, what do you think of my Killua and Gon selection from Hunter X Hunter?

White Caucasian? Nope.

I'll need to think of a second character, but for now I'd like to reserve Usopp who is totally clearly black and no one can convince me otherwise.

Confirmed.

@indiecomicsftw: Arrg, I want in, but I'm trying to decide between teams and (oddly enough) find people ho aren't too destructive :(

Right now I'm thinking one of these teams:

Xing Bairon, Ryuhwan - Witch Hunter
Lenalee Lee, Yuu Kanda - D Gray Man
Akisame Koetsuji, Sakaki Shio - History's Strongest Disciple Kenichi

It'll probably be amongst those 3, but I can't decide. ANy input to help me choose?

Bummer... too much on my plate to participate in this.

#36 Edited by boschePG (2175 posts) - - Show Bio

@dratini1331:

I dont know anything about History's Strongest Disciple, and Im rough on Witch Hunter, but I do know D Gray Man. I would love to shoot this out with you, Dratini. I will say I wonder how you will use Yu Kanda cuz doesnt he have that resurrection ability?

I might have to switch Gon. Killua I have faith in. I thought I dumbed it down with Hunter X Hunter but you kind of raised the bar here. What you think of Hunter X Hunter characters I picked?

@indiecomicsftw:

can I have the right to change my selection. I see my dude Dratini is in this fight and prices just got raised

Happens to all of us. Once my other tourney is in semi final, I will probably make another.

I'd say Blue Beetle is quite a bit beyond Spider-Man level

I'm sorry, but I don't see how Spawn or Black Panther are fair picks for this game. Spider-Man and Luke Cage level suggests patrolling the streets action. BP runs his world's most technically advanced nation as a day job before suiting up to save that world. Spawn fights the armies of Heaven and Hell.

That said, I would like a chance to play. My suggested team is Black Lightning (African-American from DC) and Fat Cobra (of fictional Asian Peng Lai Island and Marvel Comics).

The point is Black Panther stats and powers are below Spider Man (By alot) and this is Classic Spawn when he lived on the streets with no idea how to use his powers.

It has nothing to actually do with running on the streets. Street Level means stats and powers of a street hero.

Also I will put both guys in.

@shawnbaby: Kirito and arguably Classic Spawn are a bit beyond Spidey level as well though.

They are most certainly not just street levelers.

An argument could be made for Static as well.
