The Comic Vine 2013 Superhero Championship - ROUND 2!

Round 2 of voting is now underway! Go support your favorite team!

As you likely know, there's this big thing coming up here in the United States called the Super Bowl. I'm not really a big fan of the sport, but I figured we comic fans deserve an equivalent!  So, I went ahead and picked 8 teams -- 4 from Marvel and 4 from DC -- and started the bracket earlier this week.   
 
Thankfully, the turnout was massive and winners have been declared.  We can now begin round 2 of voting!  

No Caption Provided
REMEMBER, VOTING IS NOT BASED ON WHICH TEAM WOULD WIN IN A PHYSICAL CONTEST. IT'S SIMPLY VOTING FOR THE TEAM YOU LIKE MORE! 
 
Click the links below to vote!  
 
Voting for this round will end this Friday.

Why is it divided up with Batman and the JL and then TT and Avengers? Just curious.

Its referring to the Batman family. You know, Nightwing, Batgirl, etc. Idk if Batman Inc. would also be incorporated into that.

I'm going with the Justice League personally. Unless Batman et. al. had months of preparation a la Tower of Babel, then the Justice League could most definitely take them.

Wait, the Avengers beat the GLC. Come on, I'm totally calling BS. There are 7200+ Corps Members. I don't care how cool Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, and company are, if the entire weight of the GLC came down on them, they'd be toast. Most probably because they'd wear themselves out.

You think the Justice League, with Superman, Batman, the Flash, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, and either Martian Manhunter and/or Cyborg, is a pansy team??? Not to mention the multiple Justice Leaguers that are in reserve like Black Canary, Green Arrow, Vixen, Plastic Man, etc.

I think its fair to say that they'd definitely give the Avengers a run for their money

@Decoy Elite: Yeah, I just saw that qualifier right after I posted.

I still went with Justice League anyway. I love Batman and the Bat-family, but I'd have to say I like the Justice League more because its more representative of the DCU as a whole as opposed to that one corner of it.

Does anyone else think that this should have been a larger conference?

I mean, there are still a LOT of famous comic teams that aren't represented, like SHIELD, the Legion of Superheroes, Birds of Prey, or the Justice League International (its separate enough from the Justice League for me). Hell, even throw in less-famous teams like Stormwatch, Alpha Flight, Thunderbolts, Suicide Squad, etc. or some of the New 52 exclusive ones (Demon Knights, Justice League Dark, etc.). It might have actually changed the outcomes of some of these fights.

And if the Batman Family is being represented, then shouldn't the Superman Family (Superman + Supergirl, Superboy, and Steel) be as well?

Because...?  I'm just going to go ahead and assume you didn't read the OP which plainly states this isn't a physical contest.

I'll copy/paste what I said in the Round 1 feature: 
 

If I had more time in my schedule or came up with this idea sooner then I absolutely would have made the bracket larger. Unfortunately, that's not the case. Hopefully next year I can use 10+ teams :)

@zeeguy91: maybe conference was the wrong term to use. I meant the bracket they're in. I mean c'mon X-Men, JL, and Batman ALL on one side of the bracket together? Avengers got an easy road to the finals here.

The thing in the OP. It's a bracket, and you can tell who will fight who in the next round based on it.

@Decoy Elite: Yeah, I see the graphic, I just don't understand how it divides them up the way it does. Are Batman and the JL together just because of the order they were (arbitrarily?) placed in at the start, or is there more to it?

@MuyJingo: Just because of the order.

Blah. How did everyone not see all of those coming.... Also, why were Batman and X-men put against each other while Teen Titans and Guardians put against each other? We all know X-men should have moved on in Teen Titans place.

The Bats are killing the JLA. They have a legion, I honestly think they'll win it all at this point.

This is the superhero championship. What better way to do it than to have the two most iconic teams go at it.

Justice League vs Avengers.

As much as I hate to admit it, I'm almost entirely sure that Avengers will win. 
Looking at the previous round's results (and the way the current round is going), I find it fascinating how the standing order is pretty much the same as the amount of public exposure (specifically in recent years) that the respective teams have received. Not to be one of those annoying geeks that spend most of their lives complaining, I nonetheless find it distressing that this result would be entirely different, had the competition been released a few years ago. How can you even dare ask which team is the best without mentioning the JSA?
When they asked this question, it was always going to become Batman vs Avengers.  
Do we need even more division within the industry?
