    and so it begins. the final count is 94 individuals and 29 teams. to make sure this doesnt turn into the '09 comic showdown, we'll start with 4 matchups of singles and 2 matchups of teams per day. each match will go for 24 hours-ish. if the vote turn out is low, i may let it go another day. i myself will only vote in the event of a tie. who will emerge victorious? thats up to you to decide.

    one more thing: feel free to be creative. if you wish to write a short scenario describing a battle for the matchup, we'd love to read 'em.

    Wolverine - He is the best at what he does. One of those things is beating Mystique

    Shadowcat - She phases her hand into catwoman's head 9 times. Game over.

    Phantom Stranger - Considering that 1) The Question is currently dead, 2) The Phantom Stranger is nigh-immortal, 3) cannot even be killed by The Specter, and 4) has powers comparable to The Specter, yeah, gonna go with him.

    Spider-Man 2099 - Being a part of the Exiles team he has seen and fought more than most other characters. An old guy, granted founder of the League of Assassins, wouldn't stand much chance.

    Avengers - First off, this was not the Guardians of the Galaxy team I meant. I should have been more clear in the current team, so my fault. But yeah, Avengers would win against this team.

    Justice League - AoA X-Men are an impressive team, but they do not have the stability of Earth 1 Justice League. Plus Superman = Hax.

    Mystique - Mystique morphs into hybrid character Cyber and Jean Grey, the only 2 characters I believe Wolverine has ever feared. Logan sees the face of an angel on the body of a brute and it drives him insane. He runs himself through by his own hand.

    That's true, but Wolverine is a badass character. I'm not a fanboy, but if I ever have a son I'll name him Logan because that is such a hardcore name.

    Of course, I'll act like I've never read a comic so he doesn't grow to hate his name.

    We could also just mention that Wolverine, with his heightened sense of smell would realize it was Mystique right away, but you know, to each his own.

    True, but not all showdowns can be determined by who would realistically win. Because eventually you'd have to pair up two characters that would be an unfair fight. So that's when popularity comes in.

    But also Wolverine killed Jean Grey, his "weakness"... okay, so it was in X3. But he still did it!

    Nothing, and I mean nothing in X3 should ever be taken seriously :p.

    I'm not %100 on this but I think that Logan kills Jean Grey towards the end of the New X-Men Grant Morrison run too.

    You mean like Phantom Stranger, who is regarded by DCs supernatural beings as invincible, against The Question?

    Also, in the second Exiles arc, an alternate universe Wolverine kills Phoenix Jean Grey when the Phoenix takes over in order to kill the universe. This Phoenix first kills Cyclops and Storm, just proving how powerful it is.
