    VOTING FOR MATCHES H, I AND J IS NOW OPEN.

    ALL RECAPS FOR ROUND ONE WILL BE INCLUDED IN A ROUND ONE MEGARECAP THREAD. MORE DETAILS ON THAT WILL BE RELEASED AT A LATER DATE.

    BATTLEFIELDS WILL ALSO BE RETURNING. I HAVE NOT YET DECIDED WHEN, BUT THEY WILL DEFINITELY BE A PART OF ROUND TWO.

    I entreat everyone to vote for the archers. At least as their secondary vote.

    Hawkeye and Green Arrow are not punks.

    They are cool characters, but Northstar could break both their necks before they said "Nice bow."

    Sorry. :wink:

    I'm liking that there are a lot of diverse votes in the voting so far, its a sign of some interesting fights.

    Oh, like Northstar wouldn't fly all over battle world looking for his sister, then sit down and write a poem about how much he hates wolverine, and write a suggestive email to Bobby Drake before he joined in the fight.

    Early Results:

    Match H:

    Ambrose Chase: 7
    Invisible Woman: 30
    Northstar: 4
    Hawkeye: -5
    King Mob: 6
    Green Arrow: 2
    Havok: -1
    Juggernaut: 5


    Round I:

    Magneto: 15
    Hulk: 30
    Blue Beetle: -7
    Impulse: 8
    Captain Britain: 3
    Arsenal: -4
    Cosmic Boy: -1
    Spider-Girl: -1


    Round J:

    Plastic Man: 28
    Animal Man: 1
    Nightwing: -5
    Spider-Man: 15
    Emma Frost: 6
    Thing: 1
    Machine Man: -2

    Ghost Rider did two outs in H which I didn't count, and I doubt SoB will look kindly on that.

    1st place is already looking locked in. Looks like this is the round where my personal picks get blown out of the water, my vote for Nocturne's already been canceled out.

    Emma Frost: 20
    Machine Man: -9
    Nocturne: -2


    You know, people could really stop using their 3-point votes on guys who've obviously already won and maybe have an actual effect on results. Tbh, I don't know if Spider-man really deserves the level of support he's getting, against those opponents. Also, both archers being in the negatives makes me :cry:

    To tell you the truth, I didn't know there was a difference between votes 1 and 2

    edit: I'd switch up my Plastic Man and Animal Man votes if it were allowed. I mean, Plastic Man would beat him, but Buddy keeps getting negatives because people aren't in the know

    Frankly, just sticking to Earth animals would be enough. Spider-Man's as strong as he is and he only has ONE animal's powers. Animal Man, however, can become a flying Spider-Man who can make copies of himself, create sonic booms, fly, regenerate missing limbs, move twice as fast, immobilize everyone with strong poisons, and see, hear, and smell everything.

    And since nobody's saying, "Superman loses because Battle World might have a red sun," we can assume that everyone at least has the abilities they usually have (so Earth animals for Buddy).

    Name every animal that comes from, because some of those sound like a load of crap.

    Besides, do we even know how his powers work as far as planets pieced of smaller planets go? Couldn't he just keep a piece of Kryptonite nearby as a "mini-planet" and be Superman?

    Speed: many animals
    Sonic booms: Shrimp?
    Regenerate: Well, he can't match Wolverine or Hulk, but some creatures heal faster than humans

    1.Flight=Bird

    5.Regeneration (he grew a new arm back in no time at all)=Earthworm

    7.Poisons=Cobra? One of those weird frogs?
    8.Sight=Hawk
    9.Hearing=Something with good hearing? He could take sonar from a bat too.
    10.Smell=Dog

    Of the 10, I know for a fact he's done 1,3,4,5,6,and 10. The rest are just things I assume he could do.

    I don't know how his powers work with pieces of planets. I'm pretty sure, though, that copying a Kryptonian would just give him the ability to absorb yellow sunlight and eventually gain superpowers from it through continuous exposure over a long period of time. Not really helpful in this fight. A chunk of Mars, though, would make him J'onn strong.

    Interesting that the first 3 battles are guaranteed to become teams of two against each other as opposed to silly free-for-alls (I want to believe Bigby can beat Superman).

    I'm not gonna be using teamups for round 2 and onward. 1 winner out of 4 doesn't leave nearly as much room for that as 2 out of 8.

    I don't see how Bigby could beat Superman. Batman's really the only one there that "can", and since he knows he and Deadpool can't beat Bigby, I don't think he'd take out Supes first.

    And I don't know much about Ghost Rider, but how can he beat Wonder Woman? She's got that whole sisterhood with fire thing going on, and tolerance to magic.
