Longbox Graveyard Sidekick Showdown March Madness — Final Four!

The second round of the Longbox Graveyard Sidekick Showdown March Madness Tournament is in the books … and YOUR votes have determined the winner!

  • (1) Robin defeated (8) Speedy, 94/6
  • (4) Rick Jones defeated (5) Kid Flash, 55/45
  • (7) Wonder Girl defeated (2) Jimmy Olsen, 63/37
  • (3) Bucky Barnes defeated (6) Harley Quinn, 73/27

Very little in this round went as I expected!

Robin’s victory was no surprise, but I thought Speedy would put up more of a fight. Rick Jones trailed Kid Flash all week, until a suspicious avalanche of last minute votes propelled him to victory … which is completely in the spirit of this competition, so the result will stand! Wonder Girl easily defeated #2 seed Jimmy Olsen (despite a comment on Twitter that Wonder Girl isn’t a proper sidekick), while the Harley Quinn fans failed to turn out in a contest that saw Bucky Barnes waltz to an easy victory.

Full results are posted here.

However they got here … the Final Four of the Longbox Graveyard Sidekick Showdown March Madness Tournament is now set!

Superhero Sidekick Final Four!

A spirited semi-final awaits, with Marvel vs. DC match-ups in both games!

The Final Four has begun!

Final Four!

YOUR VOTE will decide who advances to the championship match! Vote below … vote early … and vote often! And tell your friends!

FINAL FOUR VOTING WILL CLOSE sometime in the evening of Saturday, April 5th. Championship match voting will open back here at Longbox Graveyard on Monday, April 7th!


Robin … dominating his first two opponents, fully living up to his #1 seed … vs. Rick Jones, narrowly surviving two upset bids, now seeking to pull the ultimate upset himself!

Bucky Barnes … asked to beat up on another girl (not that it figured into his defeat of Harley Quinn) … vs. Wonder Girl, the tournament’s “Cinderella story,” the only lower seed to make it to the Final Four!

 Voting for the Final Four will end the evening of April 5th!

  1. OK, I’m annoyed that Rick Jones beat Kid Flash. Go Robin!


    • After a fast break from the gate, Rick Jones has come back to early and Robin is slapping him around pretty good right now.

      A more interesting contest is brewing between Bucky and Wonder Girl.


  2. Jimmy Olsen was waaayyyy over-seeded. Living off of name recognition more than actual sidekickery accomplishment.
