Pretty much what the title says. Feel free to recommend fight ideas for the battle of the week's (they don't have to be generic "character A vs B" if you guys have any special scenario ideas those can work to), or any critiques on how to improve battle of the week.

Also if you want to be tagged in future battle of the week threads say so below and we will add you to the list.

Alright, how about mission-based battles of the week(s)? CTF, TDM, etc.

Or cinematic characters

@pr0metheus: @green_skaar: @sirfizzwhizz: @eisenfauste: @supremegeneration: @merulezall:

Out of curiosity what do you guys think about if we started bringing back the "character of the month" idea? Basically where we offer a selection of characters that people can vote on that they want to see in a series of battle of the weeks? Do you think this will make things more fun to keep score, or do you think it would be more constricting?

4 trillion.

I prefer the 100 Brock Lesnars vs. 20 silver back type match ups. Those are always hilarious.

The character of the month died out because k4tzm4n wasn't a staff member anymore. Cadence stopped doing that format because he was just focused on the battle of the week part I am guessing.

I always loved character of the months. The only "problem" was the character of the month started being favored too much in the weekly battle threads due to being the character of the month. But I'd be all in favour to see it come back. I've learned a lot about some characters in these threads.

@jashro44: Id been meaning to suggest character of the month again for months now, I saw this thread and was literally just about to bring it up.

I think bringing it back would be an excellent idea.

  1. CW Arrow vs a glass of milk.
  2. A test of whether Chris Redfield is capable of lifting two stuffed animals over his head.
  3. Goku vs Superman.

@jashro44: I think the character of the month system should be brought back. It leads to new and creative battles with popular characters which is what I think the majority of long-term Comic Vine users like seeing.

I was gonna do this idea but I think it'd be a great battle of the week: MCU Captain America & The Punisher (2004) vs CW Arrow & Malcolm Merlyn

I am not good with picking fights, but i suggest starting off with some more "mainstream" characters. I know some hate that word around here, but it would get more people interested and have a long going discussion. Not to mention eliminate the 1 person vs everyone else that has been going on in the BOTW recently. That's just my 2 cents.

Please do keep me on the call-outs for the BOTW, regardless of who the characters are.

I did like the characters of the week, partly just because it was interesting to consider the same character in relation to different opponents, so a strength one week might be a relative weakness the next.

It's probably a good idea to have at least one of the characters be reasonably well-known, in order to draw people in. I know this need was somewhat of a necessity to draw in traffic for the old BOTW. Of course, the current BOTW isn't on the front page any more, and thus doesn't really require high traffic for th commercial reasons that the old version did, but high traffic still makes for a better debate. But I also like the attempts that have been made to use characters that are not only lesser-known but by non-Big-Two companies. The character of the week idea may work well for lesser-known characters, because they will become better known (hopefully) over the course of the month. Unless, of course, no one reads them and the month becomes a huge hole of non-commenting.

Team battles are good. Existing teams from different eras? Like the Avengers from one year vs the Avengers from another year. Random real teams like Power Pack, Excalibur, Doom Patrol. Some magic-themed characters?

I could see battles with characters from the GI Joe, Transformers, Ben 10, Watchmen, Sin City, Saga, LOTR, Red Sonja/Conan, Godzilla, kids' movies (Big Hero Six/Incredibles/Kung Fu Panda, etc), or the Shadow universes. And of course I would be happy to see anyone from the Grendel universe, including Hunter Rose, Grendel Prime, Eppy Thatcher, Tujiro, Argent, or Pellon Cross.

More random non-big-2 comics: X-files? Cartoon characters? Archie? Cerberus?

@jashro44: meh.... It will always be Mai stream characters vs mainstream, no room at all then for the popular indie. So of course I am against it. When K4 ran that character of the month, not once did any nin Marvel of DC character made it. Kind of lame when everything is the already re hash Marvel vs DC.
