Welcome to my ComicVine Champions League. This is a tourney that will incorporate several ideas I have been thinking of implementing for a while now. The format of this tourney will be a bit different from the usual stuff as it will involve a round robin leagues followed by a knockout stage with the league winners
The way this tourneys works is simple. There will be 2-4 leagues of 6 people. Leagues are decided by the medium your characters in from. So there will be a Comic only league with only comic characters, manga only with only manga characters and so on. Each person in the league debates everyone in the league once round robin style. You get a point for every win. The person with the most points at the end of the league wins the league. After that the winners of each league face each other in a knock out tournament.
The character selection also works differently. Rather than just choosing a character, you choose a character as he was under a certain writer or during a certain run. E.g Slott's Spiderman or Loeb's Hulk. With this you only get feats under that writer or during that time period. That also means you can have multiple use the same character just under different writers. While this mainly applies to comics I have guidelines for other mediums. For manga characters you may only use manga feats irrespective of any other canon feats. And it as the be same manga series. So no feats from a sequel manga with a different Author. E.g Toriyama's Goku from the Original Dragon Ball Manga series. Even a LA character will be limited to feats under a single screenwriter. E.g McFeely and Markus's Captain America
This is a high street tourney. I guess the general rule is your character must lose to spider-man. With that said the following is the basic guidelines for the character.
- Strength: Strength is limited to 10 tons or boulder busting
- Speed: Travel is limited to Mach 2, reactions is limited to Mach 3 or sniper bullet timing.
- Durability: Durability is limited boulder busting
- DC: Limit is boulder is busting
- Senses: City level radius.
- Skill: Nothing too broken, like internal attacks

- Telepathy: Limited to Mind reading only
