Welcome to Secret Crisis 2015
Secret Crisis is a 64 hero/villain, single elimination tournament. Heroes and villains will face off in one on one battles, vying for the right to stand alone as the lone champion of the entire multiverse. You will decide who is worthy of this honor. You will decide how.
The 64 character bracket has been broken down into four 16 character regions. These regions are Marvel, DC, Villains, and GV10. The participants have already been revealed, and I will list them again in this thread for everyone to reference. On each day of the first round, there will be four matches: one from each region. And each day will have its own theme. Each match that day has its own stipulation or prompt that ties into that theme.
There are eight themes, presented here in alphabetical order:
- Pro Wrestling
- Rock and Roll
- TV Shows
- Young Adult Fiction
That playlist contains 32 songs: each song is tied to a specific first round match.
How Voting Works
Threads will be open at midnight central time. You will have twenty-four hours to debate and discuss each matchup in its own thread. After those twenty-four hours are up, I will open up voting, and introduce the next round of matches. Voting will be open for twenty-four hours, at which point I will announce the winners. Sounds pretty simple, right? Well, there's a bit of a twist.
Each match will have a youtube video attached to it that will fit the day's theme in some way. And every match will have a prompt or stipulation related to that video. In the first round, these prompts and stipulations are, generally speaking, there as a template for you to create alternate versions of the competitors. For instance, if the theme for a Batman/Superman match would be "the Fallout video games," I don't mean that the familiar versions of Batman and Superman are fighting on a battlefield inspired by Fallout, I mean that you should come up with Fallout versions of Batman and Superman and decide who wins.
The debate and discussion portion of the vote is for you to lay out your theory as to who would win and how. This is very important
. After we vote on who wins the battle itself, I will go back and find the person whose argument for the winning character received the most awesomes and agrees, and a couple of fun things will happen:
- That forumer will receive a special badger
- That argument will be accepted as canon for the entire tournament
So pull out all the stops. Post art, if you want, post a real in-depth argument, campaign for your favorite character and your favorite argument. I don't want this tournament to only be about "who would want to win in a fight." This forum is full of super creative and intelligent people, and this is an opportunity to just go nuts coming up with goofy elseworlds, and earn a really fun badger!
Anyways, when you feel you've made your best possible argument, be sure to add who you're backing in the post in the following format: Winner: (Character Name)
