    piracer, i already said i like GL too, i just like batman more. and yes you can kill a green lantern. if they are forced to use enough of thier rings powers until they weaken or drain away the protective barrier that surrounds them, then they are vulnerable.

    but this showdown wasnt a RTS of comic characters. it was a popularity contest.

    /\ It was SUPPOSED to be both.
    Still, I wonder why we need a popularity contest? The world knows that Superman, Batman, and Spiderman are the 3 most popular characters. Could we just end it at that?

    Suggestion for next showdown: Keep those 3 people out.

    What about wolverine? He's certainly up there with those 3.

    But the best way to do it is just to have a previous winner retire. So next time there's a show down list the winner of previous showdowns and just not include them anymore. That's what gamefaqs does for it's character battles.

    I personally like Beast the most, me being the guy who doesn't conform kicking in there, so when Green Lanturn beat him I was upset about that.

    In the end though, Superman, Batman, and Spiderman are the big cheeses, so they will probably always win anyway.

    Wolverine is not so popular. If he was he should of trumped Magneto easily.

    I didn't need to take out last year's champion because he wasn't even in the top four.

    The top four last year was..
    #1 Venom
    #2 Spider-man
    #3 Wolverine
    #4 Magneto

    And this year's top four were
    #1 Batman
    #2 Green Lantern
    #3 Superman
    #4 Gambit

    So while you can all point out who you think the top three are, GR as a whole makes things alot more diverse in terms of popularity.

    well, the showdown was very well done. for a bit i thought it was going to be all marvel again, but towards the end dc stepped forward (with the exception of gambit) to reign supreme.

    I can't believe Gambit made it into the top four. But looking back I see that he beat both The Joker and Carnage! Wow!
