    Okay, so here's the basic idea: You will fight each person in your division once. The first matches will take place on Friday, July 27th, and continue on every other day until each team has faced every team in their division. Once that occurs, I will open up a thread to decide on "Interleague" matches and challenges. Each team will play one more game.

    Division winners will then be decided. The top team in each division will advance to the playoffs, along with the top four second place finishers, and one more team to be decided by popular vote.

    Matches will be decided by a poll to be open for twenty-four hours. Each team will have at least six days in between matches. I will announce the schedule this Wednesday at the earliest, and Friday at the absolute latest. You will find out your first three matches, as well as your challenge for each, at the same time, giving you a chance to plan in advance in case of other commitments.

    YOUR FIRST ASSIGNMENT FOLLOWS

    Create a biography, including powers, ability and personality for your character, including your own art for the character in their costume for the tournament.

    You may create a comic showing your character preparing for the tournament, although this is by no means necessary.

    PM your entries to Son of Beyonder by Friday, July 20th..

    OK, so we're basically writing a primer on our character as s/he is? Or are we, like, going Tangent and reinventing the name?

    I'm guessing the former.

    I like how none of the top four from the hero tournament are even in this

    and I think the only one from the top eight is shadowcat

    Plastic Man should have gone all the way in the hero tournament.

    okay i'm confused

    each person only has one match for those days?

    or each person has to have a match ready for each of those days?

    i'm thinking the former, but it's worded like the latter

    So, I have another question. What's expected out of the assignment? Should it be more like the hidden origins bits in 52, where we go into their history and that's that, or should we do our own thing and just make sure to cover the important stuff- biography, powers, etc.?

    just like, explain the character: their personality, powers, biography, etc

    for the people that might not know exactly who your character is (or knows the basics about them)

    no, the divisions rotate through the days

    you will have at least six days between your matches

    like, divisions a and d will have a match each the first day

    then two days later the other matches from those divisions will start along with a match each from b and e and so on

    it'll make more sense when you see the schedule, I promise

    DIVISION A
    Cyclops (Entrant: Servo)
    Nova (Entrant: Judas)
    X-O Manowar (Entrant: JCM)
    Aaron Stack (Entrant: -SPI-)

    Two Galactic fighters with a badass armor made by an uber-powerful race against a mutant and a robotic guy?

    Must it be drawn all four fighting at once (seeing cyclops and Machineman/Aaron stack cant breathe in outer space, it will be a bit easy) Or may I like draw XO vs Nova blowing shit up in space as they fight each other, then maybe get Aric down to earth for a second round, now againt Cyke and Stack?

    Anyway, damn creative line up all around, no Batman, Flash, Superman, Wolverine, Captain Marvel, etc, heck, I already was preparing a comic where XO would pack up his bags and leave should someone choose World War Hulk.
