    DeFalco/Castro Electro or everyone else's Electro?

    because the former is essentially a magneto level opponent who is just to stupid to be that high a threat and the latter is...well. His appearance in NA tells enough.

    Mystique isn't really suited for this kind of thing. Aside from being able to shift around her vital organs, she doesn't have any real advantages over Ragdoll.

    And I'm sure Ivy has some kind of crazy vines that'll travel up Octopus's arms to his pudgy, unprotected center. The arms aren't really suited for scraping stuff off themselves.

    Doesn't Ivy have some sort of seductive Mind Control/Manipulation? Although I doubt she'd get to use it since most people with Mind Control haven't been allowed.

    The question is, what good does Doom's pistol do against Bizarro?

    I think we all know that, if such a match-up occurred in the comics, Doom would win. I just can't think of a sufficient justification for it, and thus I am on the fence.

    I was going to go with Doc Ock, but I've been convinced about Ivy. Vines over the arms for the win.

    I have no idea who Ragdoll is.

    Incompetant though Electro may be, I think he can beat Sportsmaster. It's a pretty lame gimmick.

    That is all.

    I left Blob out to dry, but I'm definitely going to bat for Mystique on this one. Ragdoll is great at coming at you through the toilets, but a bullet to the head will still kill him and Mystique is easily 10 times the fighter he is.

    A. Doom. Remember, Doom has magic, and Superman doesn't like magic. That might mean Bizarro loves it but he can't handle it any better.
    B. Ivy
    C. Mystique
    D. Electro. I've never heard of this sports guy before but he manages to make Electro look cool in compairison.

    I thought Dooms Armor could shoot like energy blasts? Also, is Bizzarro weak against magic like Supes...or is he highly resistant to it, opposite of Supes? Cause Doom can get his magic on and potentially screw Bizzarro hard!

    Doom wins.

    This is Doom's tournament, do you really think that Doom will not cheat to ensure Doom's victory? Who will stop Doom? The organizers of this event? Perhaps, if they were not DOOM HIMSELF, PEONS!

    Doom could just use circular logic to control Bizarro, or just have him kill himself.

    Is Mjolnir always on Thor or does it just reside in Asgard until summoned?

    Doom is going to win his fight without putting up a fight - I just have to devise a way for it to happen when voting time happens.

    Poison Ivy, if given the proper setting, could fuck up everyone in this tournament, including Doom. Regardless, Doc Ock has no prayer in Central Park.

    Mystique will probably win this fight thanks to her experience, though Ragdoll's abilities make him a tough fight.

    And Electro. Fuck Sportsmaster.

    Well shoot... there goes a potentially humorous joke where Bizarro wastes the entirety of the tournament trying to lift it.

    I'm pretty sure he carries one on him in a holster, at least in some art. But yea, shooting energy blasts from his hands is usually a bit easier.

    Even if Doom would lose (which he wont) he could just transfer his consciousness over to Bizzaro and whoever else until the end of the tournament, in which case he would technically win anyway.

    But magic probably doesn't work on Bizarro.

    I think Doom over Bizarro, because he's the tournament arranger and wouldn't make it were he would lose.

    Ivy over Doc Ock. Central Park? Dock has no chance.

    Mystique vs. Ragdoll is close.... too close for me to call.

    Sportsmaster because beating up Electro dressed up like a golfer just seems appropriate.

    But against a foe whose giant glaring weakness is his lack of mental faculties? Doom wins.

    Let's see, checking the brackets...assuming he gets past Bizarro, Doc Ock/Ivy are definitly going down to him. Mystique? Electro? not a chance. Modok, Nimrod, Zoom or Abomination might be interesting but he's still got good odds. I think Doom's likely to go all the way.
