The Comic Vine 2013 Superhero Super Bowl

Vote to make sure your favorite team takes home the trophy!

Apparently there's thing big thing called the "Super Bowl" coming up here in the United States. I can't say I'm a huge fan of the sport, but I thought to myself, "Why can't we comic book fans have an equivalent?" So, I present to you...

Comic Vine's first SUPERHERO SUPER BOWL!

Behold the raw power of Microsoft Paint!
Behold the raw power of Microsoft Paint!

The rules are simple: 8 teams enter, 1 team leaves as champions. The winner will be determined by you. There's no guideline for how you need to vote. This isn't based on which team has the better book or which would win in a fight... it's as easy as voting for the team you simply want to win!

Now go vote (click the links below!) to help your team win the first round!

I remember seeing a lot of people saying "___ should have won!" over at the Comic Vine Movie Awards, so now is your chance to make sure you're not disappointed again. Go help spread the word about this and hopefully you'll also boost your team's chances of winning!

The second round of voting will begin this Wednesday!

GO GREAT LAKES AVENGERS!

No Caption Provided

Wait, I didn't include them? Darn.

each team needs a roster. JLA, who? X-men? Avengers, everyone in the marvel universe is an avenger now...

Surely you dont mean any and all members.

You're just picking which team you like the most. 
It's not a fight or anything.

My votes on the first round are based around leadership. Batman, Star Lord, and Captain America are the superior leaders in this case. The next round is when things get serious.

I'm not sure I would call the Bat Family a team. Still it is a shame that there are only 8 teams this could have been bigger and therfore more epic.

@Onemoreposter said:

This is a splendid idea but am I the only one who feels there should have been a larger starting line up? I mean, wheres my X-Force, Justice League International, the Boys, Guardians of the Globe, Defenders, and Outsiders? Why not add the Ultimates or give the Shi'ar empire a team?

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 :)

awesome idea, but ive got this feeling that JL and Avengers werent put anywhere near each other because everyone assumes theyre going to be in the finals

Thanks!

@k4tzm4n: No Great Lakes Avengers! No Section 8! No Alpha Flight! No Shadowpact! No Thunderbolts! No Legion! It's teams like these that in a tournament like this could possibly shine with a good draw, like Goran Ivanisivich who won Wimbledon on the wildcard entry. Still I like it, still cast my votes and also realise the logistics of running such a tournament to cater for us ravenous fans/nerds/dorks!

:D

Interesting match ups! I'll go for JL, Bat Fam, TT and the GLC. The last one was the only one that was a tough call for me, but come on...the entire Green Lantern Corps? Thats 7200 plus, each with the most powerful weapon imaginable. Sorry Avengers, I love ya but your done.

Should have made this thread first K4tz. :P

If I did that it wouldn't include links to voting right away.

It's a double-edged sword.

Have fun making that one post over and over again.

Nah, I'm only making that one post per thread.

Bah, people are already pointing it out for you anyway. Anyway, who you betting on for the finals? I'm thinking Avengers vs JLA despite being the obvious choice.

Avengers vs. JLA is definitely the most obvious (which is why I avoided having them face off in round 1). Personally, I'm rooting for the Bat-Family.

Oh that's the Batman Family? I thought it was just Batman. lol This is going to suck because I can't choose between the Batman Family and the Teen Titans.

Aside from maybe the final round the odds seem stacked against marvel, but we'll see

Cool list. But Batman Family vs. X-Men? The Bat Family is kind of out numbered.

In OP:

This isn't based on which team has the better book or which would win in a fight... it's as easy as voting for the team you simply want to win!

I was walking back home last night when a question popped up in my mind. Who's cooler? The X Men (including x force, factor, gen x, all x teams whose members have been in x men) OR ultra force? Or cyber force? I was mostly comparing costumes and art
