    Im going with these, and symbiotes dont even have brains, they connect with who they take over... So if carnage even touches the Proffesor, its game over.

    Batman beats down Leonardo 16 to 2
    Nova edges past She-Hulk with 10 to 8
    The Tick spoons Bucky 16 to 2
    V is victorious over Witchblade with 10 to 8

    Legion of Doom ties with The Outsiders at 9 to 9. my tie-breaker vote goes to:
    The Outsiders!
    Venom and Carnage slash down World's Finest 13 to 5.


    match 4!

    You put both the teams I picked for the showdown against each other, I feel I should be able to give them both a vote.

    cable - He's the mutant messiah.

    Beast - Who's Cosmic Spiderman?

    Mr. Freeze - While Rorschach was an impressive character, in the end he was just an intelligent nutcase. Meanwhile Freeze has evolved to become a tragic villain, who is also an incredibly powerful villain. His cameo in Batman Beyond was by far the most impressive iteration of the character.

    Silver Surfer - Power Cosmic VS Optic Blast. I go with Herald.

    Heroes for Hire - Blake, excellent choices in comics man. Iron Fist was the only comic I actually paid for (until they replaced the writer), and so have to go with my roots.

    BPRD - Nova kicked the collective butts of the Thunderbolts. BPRD has Lobster Johnson.

    Thanks for the compliment. If you haven't read the latest Iron Fist series, do yourself a favor and pick up the first couple of trades. Fraction and Brubaker are doing some insanely awesome stuff with it. It's one of the few comics that I really look forward to each month.

    Sorry if you read wrong, but I loved the restart of Iron Fist. It is the only comic I actually find worth paying money for, and have all the single issues. I also have the one shot Iron Fist and the Green Mist and the Iron Fist Annual. Fraction and Brubaker were a great team, but now that they are gone, I don't know how well the series will be.

    Although I wouldn't mind seeing a series based on the adventures of the other immortal weapons. I'd love to see Fat Cobra walking around New York looking for victory wenches or Bride of Nine Spiders meeting Spider-man.

    Oh schnap! They aren't doing the new arc?
    At any rate, I'm curious to see where whoever is writing it now is going to take it, as it seems like a finite subject.

    **the Cosmic Spider-Man and Mr. Freeze pics aren't working**

    Madman

    Cosmic Spider-Man: It's not even close. I throw Cosmic Spidey in these showdowns almost every year all to the same results. The only fair comparison to a Cosmic Spider-Man would be Superman (and still that's not fair because Cosmic Spidey would destroy him).
    He's the most powerful character ever created in Marvel history. But ah well. It's not your week, Cosmic Spidey.

    Mr. Freeze: he's cool

    Silver Surfer: he's not a blip on Cosmic Spider-Man's radar, but fine. /disgruntled

    The current arc is the Death of the Iron Fist starting with issue #16. The idea is that all Iron Fists die at the age of 33. Danny Rand turns 33 in #16. He also has sex with Misty Knight, who grew back her afro that was oddly missing during the 7 Cities of Heaven arc. The Death arc may be tied to the 8th city arc at the end of the 7 cities arc, but no one is certain yet as they are only on issue 18, which should be coming out this week.

    Dude, that has been retconned so many times since 1990. Currently the Sentry is believed to be the strongest character in the Marvel Universe, excluding, you know, Death, and The Man with the Typewriter.

    I gotta do whatever I gotta do to get this guy votes. Trust me, this is all a formality. He's gonna lose (to Beast this year).

    Seriously, it's a veritable who's who that he's lost to
    Cannonball
    Quicksilver
    Captain Britain
    Sauron
    Ultron
    Thor's Hammer
    Howard the Duck
    Harvey Pekar
    Daredevil's Billy Club
    White Queen
    Slapstick
    Toad!
    dude, he's lost to Lockheed before. Lockheed!

    it's a running gag

    But at that time, he was the strongest Marvel character ever created. That's true.
    was.. is...
