    Fight 5:

    A:
    Captain Nazi: 17
    Lady Shiva: 27

    B:
    Green Goblin: 43
    Hobgoblin: 1

    C:
    Mastermind: 31
    Purple Man: 13

    D:
    Gentleman Ghost: 37
    Absorbing Man: 6


    Fight 6:

    A:
    Bullseye: 40
    Blob: 4

    B:
    Grodd: 32
    Tombstone: 12

    C:
    Solomon Grundy: 22
    Omega Red: 22

    D:
    Deathstroke: 13
    Taskmaster: 31


    Taskmaster ain't exactly the underdog in this one. I'm almost tempted to give Goblin 44 and pretend no one would vote for Hobgoblin.

    P.S. Better Red than dead!

    Is Doom even doing recaps?

    If not, someone should.

    it totally just occurred to me today
    in one of his journals that's in the fourth trade he mentions a big theater fire
    an actress he likes is stuck in it but he can't get to her
    Yet fire is not my friend, nor that of the creatures I create from the shadows, so I was powerless to do anything but sit there and await the bad news.

    Know what would be a great matchup, totally not in the rules of this match (since it's between a hero and villain) ?

    Hulk vs. Bizarro. Televized debate. No physical contact allowed.

    Subject would be...who would win in an actual fight.

    Would this be a great contest to behold, or am I just crazy?

    I don't remember that part.

    Given that, I'm guessing it's not meant to be a weakness on par with Martian Manhunter's?

    Keep in mind that Jonn ultimately didn't even lose to someone who could produce fire.

    Actually, spectre-x would have just refused such a weakness existed and called everyone who thought it did stupid.

    Fuck you, shitfucker, that's not what I do. What I do is this: I look at each contestant and their powers and personalities and weaknesses, and I pick the winner accordingly. If I'd known about the Shade's weakness to fire, I would have adjusted my picks accordingly.

    So fuck you, asshole.

    Yeah, I'm reading through Starman now.

    [spoiler:80fdd418fb]At one point a guy from the family shade pissed off knocks him out and leaves him in front of a fireplace, and then goes on a tirade about how great it's going to be to kill him. Shade's response is "That only works when I'm surrounded by fire you imbecile." and then he kills him.[/spoiler:80fdd418fb]

    Looks like the Nimrod/Zoom fight will continue to be the contested one. Glad at least one of my noms gets to kick ass in one fight.

    Well I don't think it'd be Spectre-X. Jordyn is the one who insisted that "NO GUYS, DESPITE SEEING HIM REACT FEARFULLY TO EVEN A SMALL FLAME, MM IS NOT THAT WEAK TO FIRE THAT HE FREAKS OUT OVER IT."

    To be fair, sometimes a small flame significantly weakens martians (like when Batman made a ring of fire to beat up three white martians) and sometimes a martian can be completely engulfed in flame and still not be hurt (like when J'onn got lit up by nanobots). Then there's the whole thing about it having never been firmly established as to whether J'onn's fire weakness is a physical thing inherent to his race, or a mental thing gained from seeing the millions of funeral pyres burning across the surface of Mars. J'onn's powers and weaknesses seem to fluctuate pretty erratically.
