March Madness Supervillain Tournament Of Evil — ROUND ONE!

Welcome to the opening round of the Longbox Graveyard March Madness Supervillain Tournament of Evil!

Last week we asked you to select one villain from a cast of thousands to join our contest as the #16 seed. After a bloody, seven-day struggle that saw hundreds of votes cast … THANOS emerged the winner, narrowly defeating Ultron. For his prize, Thanos draws an opening round match-up with top seed Magneto!

Thanos!

celebrate while you can, Thanos …!

Here are the top ten results of our “play-in” game …

Play-In Top Ten

But enough with the preliminaries — it is time for the full tournament to begin!

You are to vote for ONE bad guy in each match-up below. The terms of the vote are deliberately vague. Are you voting for your favorite villain? The villain who would win in a fight? Maybe the villain that has made the greatest mark on comics? It’s up to you … vote based on the color of their costumes if you like, just so long as you vote!

Here’s the full field for the MARCH MADNESS SUPERVILLAIN TOURNAMENT OF EVIL!

  1. Interesting to see when I voted on the Luthor/Goblin debate, it was split 50/50. I went with Luthor myself. Also another 50/50 split with the loki/Dark Phoenix fight. I can see how’d this one would be hard to pick, old god, vs new. I went with DP in the grounds that the Phoenix force could conceivably wipe out not just a universe, but a multiverse, and probably Loki too unless Odin steps in. Good match ups except for Catwoman and Two-Face who got the shit end of the stick with Darkseid and Galactus respectively.

    • I was surprised that Dark Phoenix didn’t put up more of a fight against Loki. Maybe Magneto getting wiped out at the top of the ticket has a chilling effect on other X-Men characters down the ballot? Dunno.

      And it did look like the Goblin was going to give Lex a run for it early in the voting, but the Metropolis Mastermind pulled ahead comfortably by the end. But now, Galactus looms …

  2. I see we have one big upset brewing with Thanos over Magneto! If this poll have been taken 5 years ago, I bet the numbers would be reversed.

  4. Just voted, and if the numbers so far are anything to go by, this does seem to be based on likely outcome (because, naturally, I think my choices are the correct ones:)
    Except for the one or two ballot stuffers going for Two-Face – what are they on?
    I’m going on the record to predict a likely Galactus v Darkseid final.
    Wiith Dr Doom as popular outsider most likely to produce an upset, the super-villain Sanders so to speak. I’m feelin’ the Doom.
