    It's that time of year again (or close enough) for the Comic-Originating Character Kombat Showdown! Or just Comic Showdown for short. 

    Everyone can submit up to eight comic book characters and two teams for their nominees. If you have a favorite picture you'd like used for your picks, feel free to PM them to me. Once a character or team has been nominated, they're in so no need to repeat the pick of someone else. 

    I don't want to be strict when it comes to multiple portrayals of characters. If you want to pick Jason Todd's Robin and Tim Drake's Robin, sure why not? If you want to go old school and choose the Alan Scott Green Lantern, that would be cool and awesome. We don't need, however, both Superman and Clark Kent.

    Above all, I want this to be fun and hopefully interactive with all involved. 

    I'll let the nominations run a few days and see how many we get. I myself won't choose any unless I need to fill holes in the brackets after all the picks are in.

    Feel free to ask me any questions or offer any suggestions as well. 

    Excelsior!

    Some of these picks are making me run to Wikipedia more than I'd care to admit, but keep em coming.

    And Rakon, you can still submit a team if you wish.
