Doug: In the immortal words of former Arizona Cardinals football coach Dennis Green, in reference to a Chicago Bears team that had just come from behind in incredible fashion to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat...
Well, Spidey and Batman are who we thought they were, too! So we crowned Spidey!
All kidding aside, this was a fun "tournament" with lots of great suggestions to start it off (and thank goodness I got HB to back off, or I would have been trying to find a 200-line bracket!). The completed brackets are below, and I guess today I'll throw it open to all-things-costume. I'd personally like to hear more love tossed the way of Ditko, Kirby, and that Cockrum fellow, and I'd also like to know where you feel characters who weren't on the bracket (Galactus, for example) would have finished. Were there key match-ups along the way that, if the draw had been different, you feel certain characters would have advanced further? Who was that monster that destroyed all comers, no matter who they were?
Thanks for your past participation -- still don't know why when we have over 500 visitors a day we can only muster 70 votes in a 3-day poll -- and thanks in advance for today's comments. You all are swell!
Doug: Periodically when I'm just chillin' on a Friday night, watching the baseball play-offs or whatever, I like to look ahead and see what sort of Bronze Age love could be coming my way via amazon.com. Well, kiddies, do I have news for you (unless you beat me to it...)! How about this?
