In all third round battles, heroes may choose to prepare only at their own facilities, or at the facilities of their supergroup. Heroes may match video of two of their three opponents. Heroes have TWENTY MINUTES outside of video time to prepare for battle. If a character opts out of the video, he still only has twenty minutes to prepare. Heroes come equipped with their standard equipment, and may equip one special item, provided that item is not a dues ex machina. Weaknesses that are not publicly known to the hero’s home universe/world will not be made available to the heroes during prep time. Heroes who already know of these weaknesses for whatever reason are not caused to forget this information. Heroes may also consult with an advisor for thirty minutes, rules on that may be found in the recap thread.

VOTING WILL TAKE PLACE IN A SEPARATE THREAD. RULES FOR VOTING WILL BE POSTED UPON THAT THREAD’S OPENING. THE VOTING THREAD WILL OPEN AT ELEVEN O’CLOCK CENTRAL TIME TOMORROW.

    Man.

    Namor definitely doesn't win this one. And I think the only way Hulk advances is if J'onn or Thor take each other out.

    And I think I'd give that fight to Thor.

    Ouch no water, Namor is pretty Fucked.

    I'd say Thor and either MM or Hulk, but I'm not sure as to how much J'onn could mindfuck with Hulk.

    Yes, but MM can go intangible, Shapeshift, and is as strong as Superman.

    And Thor has fought a pretty angry Hulk to a standstill.

    namor is out, lack of water.

    MM won't be able to mind rape hulkster if he has that resistance plus having to fend off the other combatants.

    I'd say Hulk and Thor.

    Think I'm gonna go with Thor and MM. Not sure which order yet though.

    Hulk cannot fly so the others can just stay away from him and he'll spend his time just sitting on the ground twittling his thumbs and Namor just isn't strong enough to take out the other two.

    Namor doesn't really need water to win.

    He was around at the same time as Golden Age Superman, and has done just as much crazy shit. Whether or not you want to take all of that as canon, though, is another story.

    Yes, I know. But I'm just saying that just because Hulk can't fly doesn't mean he doesn't have any range at all.

    He has range, but I'm pretty sure the other three would notice a giant green mass flying at them and...you know...get out of the way.

    That's a fair point, Gladiator Hulk would be rational enough to see the benefit in it if he were super outclassed I believe, but he isn't THAT outclassed in this match. Still sadly MM's versatility will be Hulk's downfall.

    I think that anyone who say the Hulk jumping at them, Screaming "HULK SMASH" (or "Grundy Crush!", Why is Grundy not in this, anyways? I would've liked to see Grundy vs Hulk) would have enough sense to stop whatever the fuck they are doing and get out of the fucking way.

    it doesnt really matter if MM and thor can fly out of range of hulk. They will still have to deal with him when they are done with eachother. But if they do just fly around and leave the hulk alone I think the hulk will beat namor and then will advance along with whoever wins between thor and mm

    J'onn mind-controls Namor into keeping Thor busy while he shape-shifts into a bloody and beaten Betty. He convinces Hulk that Thor, "tried to have his way with her". Enraged, Hulk rips Thor's wang off and stuffs it down his throat. J'onn then tosses Hulk into space and forces Namor to stick his head up his butt, suffocating him to death.

    Thor and MM. Both are too powerful and versatile for Hulk.

    You had best believe that Martian Manhunter is powerful enough to take down Hulk or Namor. And he's pretty much on equal grounds with Thor.

    Manhunter would probably be able to beat any of these three one-on-one, and his intangibility means that there is literally nothing Namor or Hulk can do to him if he doesn't want them to. If Hulk jumps up at the flyers, Namor can move, J'onn can turn intangible, and Thor can make a portal to transport him to the realm of the Ice Giants. Namor's likely to go out first, though, I think. He's so totally outclassed here, but not the sort to acknowledge it, so he's gonna charge J'onn or Thor and get his ass handed to him, while whoever he doesn't charge at deals with the Hulk in whatever non-physical way seems best to them.
    Can Thor affect an intangible Manhunter? He's got some sort of crazy magic/energy blasts from Mjolnir, but I don't know if he can really do anything to someone intangible.

    Agreed. Thor and MM both have a wide variety of powers on top of really high-level strength. Neither of them may be able to knock Hulk out, but I think it's pretty damn likely that he'll be leaving the arena in one way or another.

    And if Hulk can't win, Namor sure can't.

    Simply put, Planet Hulk Hulk is not Hulk with Banner's personality. The Hulk is a seperate persona. He and Banner have mental battle in the Planet Hulk story in Giant-Size Hulk #1 that was released a couple months back.

    Oh, I got that confused with The End story. Still, are you telling me that Hulk right now wouldn't give a shit if Betty popped up right in front of him? I thought the Hulk persona was an extension of the core Bruce Banner personality - just more savage and emotional and junk. I just can't imagine Gladiator Hulk being all, "Tough luck, toots."
