March Madness Super-Team Showdown Round of Sixteen — Vote Now!

The people have spoken, the seeds are set, and voting is now open for the Round of Sixteen in the Longbox Graveyard March Madness Super-Team Showdown!

Cast your vote for the team you think deserves to win each match-up. Use whatever criteria you desire — raw power, smarts, karma, best uniforms … whatever you desire … just so long as you pick one and ONLY one winner in each match-up!

(And I will likely experiment with voting over on Twitter, too — so if you see me there, feel free to vote again!)

BONUS — Tell me in comments below about how your team wins their fight. Can the Hulk of the Defenders overcome the combined will of the Green Lantern Corps? Does the guile, experience, and wartime ruthlessness of the All-Star Squadron somehow trump the Trinity at the heart of the Justice League? Spin a tale in the comments section.

Here’s your bracket for the tournament:

Announcing The Longbox Graveyard March Madness Super Team Showdown!

March Madness is back at Longbox Graveyard!

In past years we’ve matched off sidekicks, supervillains, and even super-pets in a month-long single-elimination tournament.

This year, we’re doing … Super Teams!

Your first task is to help me set the field of sixteen teams that will join our tournament.

Please vote for up to sixteen teams from the list below (and if I’ve missed your favorite team, cast a write-in vote and let me know who it was for in the comments section of this post!)

I will take the top fourteen or so teams from your votes and seed them appropriately (leaving open a couple slots for write-ins or Editor’s Choice). Once our teams are sorted into a bracket, proper voting (and ELIMINATION!) will begin!

NOTE — It is up to you to decide the composition of each team. Groups like the Avengers, the Justice League, and the Guardians of the Galaxy cover a lot of characters and eras. I’ve made no attempt to define the membership of each team, and I’ve deliberately ignored most sub-teams (like the West Coast Avengers) … just use your best comic book judgement!

Here’s the schedule for The Longbox Graveyard March Madness Super Team Showdown!

  • Thursday, March 1st — Seeding
  • Monday, March 5th — Round of Sixteen
  • Monday, March 12th — Round of Eight
  • Monday, March 19th — Final Four
  • Monday, March 26th — Championship Match
  • Monday, April 2nd — Final Result Announced!

Don’t delay — voting for this seeding round concludes early on Sunday, March 4th!!

Vote early, and vote often! Tell your friends! (Your enemies too!)

And sound off about your favorites and your write-ins in the comments, below!
