    None of the other battles got posted this early, so I wouldn't be worried about it.

    FIGHTS E, F AND G ARE NOW UP. A NEW POLLING SYSTEM WILL BE IMPLEMENTED AND EXPLAINED AT THIS TIME TOMORROW. I HAVE REMOVED THE BATTLEWORLD GUIDES, AS THEY SEEMED TO NOT AFFECT DEBATE, MUCH LIKE THE ADVISORS.

    A RECAP OF FIGHTS C AND D SHOULD BE POSTED EITHER TOMORROW NIGHT OR THE NIGHT AFTER. I'D APOLOGIZE FOR THE WAIT BUT COME ON I AM A NIGH OMNIPOTENT BEING.

    I used the advisors and the battleworld guides in the damned debate.

    Hey SOB, are we allowed to change our votes after posting? As long as it's within 24 hours.

    Not planning to, just wondering.

    I don't care about Advisors really, just assume they all have access to Wikipedia. I don't see what an advisor could really tell them, they certainly couldn't train them a new martial arts or other skill in 2 hours, so it's just basic info anyone could tell.

    Terrain could be important though, things like water, magma, open vs. closed terrain, could have an effect on certain characters.

    Yeah, terrain is the important part.

    Hahaaha. I completely forgot that I even nominated Jones.

    That's great.

    I especially love how everyone's voting him 'OUTCLASSED' when he's the classiest guy there

    it's all he has going for him

    e: i should have voted spider jerusalem or the guy from fell, they haven't even been experimented on at all

    Chamber: 12

    Conan: -23
    Iceman: 16
    M: 5
    Jolt: 1
    Speedball: 4
    Human Bomb: -2


    E is looking locked with MM and Vision. Allen could maybe take F with a lot of support, same with Iceman in G.

    Rogue's my first nomination to fight, so this is a feel-good moment.

    Probably the last time I'll count em up, since it probably won't change much in the next 6 hours or so til SOB does the official tally.

    Martian Manhunter: 64
    Vision: 53
    Liz: 11
    Moon Knight: -23

    Iceman: 24

    Speedball: 5
    Human Bomb: -3


    I'm actually slightly distressed at this. Unless something changes I'll be what, 12 for 14 on my picks, with 1 of the ones I missed being Deadpool. I'm being way too mainstream. :x

    After seeing the tally, I'm not going to bother to vote, because that's about how I'd vote anyway, and I'm not too invested in any of these battles.

    Just in case anyone was wondering. :wink:

    Well, when the question is "Who would win in a fight?", the category "people with Superman-like powers" is gonna be pretty well represented, I think.

    DUE TO THE HOLIDAY WEEKEND CAUSING EVERYONE TO APPARENTLY NOT VISIT THE FORUMS, THE NEXT ROUND OF DEBATES WILL BEGIN MONDAY NIGHT. THIS IS TO HELP ENSURE THE HIGHEST PROBABILITY THAT EVERYONE WHO WANTS TO DEBATE GETS A CHANCE TO.

    I'll just use this as a general thread for all 3 fights going on.

    I gotta say, I think these are the closest matches so far. Up til now I've always gone with my initial picks, but this time I'm still not entirely sure how I'll actually vote.

    H: I picked the archers because I love the idea of both of them moving on. But to be fair, I think Sue has a really strong chance. Juggs and Northstar are contenders too, I think Havok is too likely to be hit to move on. Chase and Mob are a bit of wild cards, but I don't think their odds are that good.

    I: This one comes down to Hulk, Magneto and Impulse. I'd really rather not vote for Impulse on the basis that he takes all the fun out of the tournment, but I can't deny he has a good chance of winning. Too good.

    J: I'm definitely voting for Nocturne, since I nominated her and she needs my support. But Frost, Animal Man, Plastic Man, Spidey, and maybe even Thing are still close calls for 2nd. Machine Man and Nightwing are the only two I'd feel easy crossing out.

    I put in my reasons for her winning in the fight thread. She really does have a very good chance of moving on, since all the arguments for how powerful Animal Man, Spider-Man, etc are, could as easily be used as arguments for how strong she is.

    I think the ultimate result of this debate is: comic books are narratives in which things occur.

    august on
    Pac Man's character is difficult to explain even to the Japanese -- he is an innocent character. He hasn't been educated to discern between good and evil. He acts more like a small child than a grown-up person. Think of him as a child learning in the course of his daily activities. If someone tells him guns are evil, he would be the type to rush out and eat guns. But he would most probably eat any gun, even the pistols of policemen who need them.
