    Honestly I cannot say I would be unhappy with Ultron winning this whole thing. He's a superintelligent Adamantium armored robot with enough tricks and sheer power to take almost anyone one.

    There's a reason it usually takes all of the Avengers plus Thor to take him out.

    Eclipso didn't fuck over the Spectre. She manipulated a hostless / lost Spectre and convinced him that magic was evil. Spectre has put the kibosh on Eclipso many a time.

    Yeah thats right. Kibosh. I said it.

    But I digress. Go Psycho Pirate.

    Wasn't Eclipso a prototype Spectre though? Still seems pretty damn powerful.

    Eclipso was the original embodiment of gods wrath, but then went nutty, and was replaced.

    EARLY RESULTS:

    3A
    Apocalypse: 17
    Giganta: 1

    3B
    Ultron: 14
    Angstrom Levy: 4

    3C
    Swarm: 14
    Psycho Pirate: 4

    3D
    Mist: 9
    Sandman: 9


    4A
    Sabretooth: 15
    Rhino: 3

    4B
    Xorneto: 18
    Titanium Man: 0

    4C
    Despero: 18
    Stilt-Man: 0

    4D
    Dr. Light: 4
    Spiral: 14


    Would anyone have ever imagined Swarm winning a fight? By a landslide? Mist vs. Sandman's one of the closest in either tourny so far though. Also, although I voted for Levy, I'm glad he's losing.

    Edit: Also, Sabretooth is so fucked when he fights Xorn later.

    I think people are underestimating Psycho Pirate. I mean christ..Bee man? Sheesh.

    Now for all those who are voting for Despero only because...

    "Well I don't know who he is but it's against Stiltman hurrhurr!"

    Despero has been around since the sixties, though now he rivals Superman in strength and has taken control over Martian Manhunter using telepathy. He's not just some big purple guy with a third eye.

    I should read more comics with Spiral in them. I am more or less rooting for her because I love using her in MvC2 and she has six arms.

    spiral seriously shows up in comics less than the god damned x-babies

    I think the last time I saw her was in the background of an Exiles arc from five years ago

    No, actually Eclipso was the second embodiment of God's wrath. The first one was a being named Aztar or some shit like that. It's in the introduction to the Day of Vengeance tpb.

    I love how Psycho Pirate, one of the most powerful and underrated badasses in all of DC is getting smoked by a nazi bee man. That mask he has is one of the great artifacts in the DC universe.

    Not to mention Dr. Light, a complete and total bad ass rape monster getting beat by miss six arms...

    miss six arms can steal people's superpowers and use magic.

    Although according to Dr. Fate powers of Dr. Light's nature can easily beat magic.

    Yeah, but none of these results are making any sense. The only ones I agree with are so lopsided (Apocalypse vs. Giganta) that they should never have been held.

    Also, Spiral, Longshot and anything remotely related to Mojo and Mojoworld will never be considered cool or awesome or whatever outside of a select group of Claremont acolytes. So dang lame.

    Credit to Doom for coming up with the Mary/Joker fight which, even long after the fact, is still drawing debate.

    The reason Doom was late in tallying the last matchups is because when Doom counted the votes last night, Mist and Sandman were tied. So Doom gave them another day, and Mist came out the winner.

    These next two brackets may very well be Doom's favorite.

    Yeah, but we aren't talking about him here, we're talking about fucking bee man.

    BUt Im not bitter, as at least two of my picks will be going far in this tournament, unlike last time.

    Lady Shiva and Black Adam in '06! (or '07, depending on how long this baby goes on for )

    He'd just lose when he got to Ultron.

    Or Grundy.

    Or anything else that's non-living/a robot.
