    Okay, sorry for the delay. <snip>

    I did okay predicting this one. I figured Green Lantern for the "must have" and it was (sorry Modus Pwnens...), but there were a couple of other top answers that were also very good. Interesingly, I would have thought Ironman would do well since the movie isn't quite out yet, but I guess the impending movie kept most from saying it. Still, he got 3 responses.

    To the list:

    Green Lantern - 9
    Captain America - 7
    The Flash - 6 I'm not sure I would have gotten this one myself. Guess he's more popular than I realized
    Wonder Woman - 5
    Ironman - 3
    Thor - 3
    Aquaman - 2
    Batgirl - 2
    Captain Marvel - 2
    Submariner - 2

    And the 1-point list:
    Nightwing, She-hulk, The Phantom, Dr. Strange, Venom, Captain Planet, Hawkman, Nick Fury, The Avengers

    I was considering saying "superhero or superhero group", but The Avengers would have been too obvious if I had and I'm not really sure there are any other groups worth mentioning. Sorry, Spidey, you were the only one that allowed for multiple heroes, but you have my admiration for going for it.

    Melkor - 31 (5)
    BigBlue - 30 (3)
    turgy22 - 26 (2)
    rokapoke - 24 (1)
    Ransac - 23
    Spiderman - 23
    Modus Pwnens - 21 - not bad for missing the top answer
    Budget Player Cadet - 21
    Moosman - 20
    train - 15

    And the scores:
    turgy22 - 18
    rokapoke - 12
    BigBlue - 6
    Melkor - 6
    Mooseman - 6
    Spiderman - 6
    DarthFerret - 5
    Ransac - 2
    Budget Player Cadet - 1
    train - 0
    Modus Pwnens - 0
  2. rokapoke Man Among Gods

    For those of you who, like myself, put down "Captain America"...

    1990 movie

    2009 (!) movie

    I knew I had remembered seeing one on the shelf at A-to-Z video oh so long ago, but apparently there will be a big-budget one in the near future, too.


    EDIT -- And nobody else put Captain Planet?

    Who the heck is Capt. Planet? And he rates a movie?

    Yeah, I had trouble with this one... I mostly read Marvel in the past, so wasn't sure who was popular over in DC after Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman. I put down Green Lantern but not Flash or even Aquaman. Oh well.
  4. Ransac CPA Trash Man

    It was a Big-Screen movie that he asked for. The 1990 Cap film never went to theaters.


    Ransac, cpa trash man
  5. Modus Pwnens Eligible for User Title

    What's the Green Lantern?
  6. turgy22 Nothing Special

    I'd like a recount. Here's my list:
    Captain America
    Flash
    Green Lantern
    Iron Man
    Venom

    I count 26 points. Did you get my ballot confused with train's?
  7. Mooseman Isengar Tussle

    Ironman????? Opens in a few weeks?????

    ugh.....
  8. train The Wildcard!!!...

    Thanks for the vote of confidence Turgy...:cool:...

    Overall, pending recount, I hope I finally did something...

    It's like that one time, at band-camp, when I broke out the Sneak-Attack... AND ROMPED ALL OVER THE TOURNAMENT!!!...
  9. turgy22 Nothing Special

    Sorry, train. I wasn't trying to throw you under the bus or anything. I just noticed that you had 26 points and my answers should have been 26 points. I really am pulling for you to score (ditto Modus Pwnens), but I'd think you'd rather score on your own merits than by some mistake.

    I'll see what EB has to say...
  10. Budget Player Cadet Where in the world is BPC

    Uhh.... NEVER HEARD OF THE JLA?? JSA???
  11. Mooseman Isengar Tussle

    Just Stupid A$%*&@s?
    Junior Lame A$%s?

    DC was and is the second tier of comic books.....
  12. rokapoke Man Among Gods

    Hear, hear!
  13. Mooseman Isengar Tussle

    Well maybe Dark Horse is second or Image.... DC may be 3rd or 4th or even 5th....
  14. Budget Player Cadet Where in the world is BPC

    Yes, but they have superman, batman, green lantern, batgirl (who I find totally sexy), Rha's al Ghul (best villain ever!!), Lex Luthor...
    I can't remember liking a Marvel character since the green goblin.
  15. EricBess Active Member

    [Embarrasment]Um...oops. Yeah, sorry turgy and even more sorry train...It appears that I did get your answers reversed on my spreadsheet.[/Embarrasment]

    I've corrected the scores and removed the comments that were unfortunately probably insenstive toward train at this point. I don't know if it any consolation, but I will tell you that train and Modus Pwnens are currently tied for 3rd in round 6 with 7 lists submitted...No guarentees it will stay that way, though...
  16. EricBess Active Member

    Squadron Supreme, X-Statics, JLI, Thunderbolts...Yeah, I can name them and can probably come up with a few more, but I'm just not sure they would have made the list. Maybe JLA, but certainly none of the others would have been considered over anyone that was already on a list.
  17. Ransac CPA Trash Man

    I'm hating this "just barely missing points" trend.


    Ransac, cpa trash man
  18. train The Wildcard!!!...

    This just means that the Sneak Deck hasn't finished being sleeved, and I'm still working on a sideboard...

    It's coming though... but you won't know when... it's a SNEAK ATTACK!!!...

    :cool:
  19. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Man, I've never heard of those DC groups...
  20. EricBess Active Member

    Squadron Supreme, X-Statics, and Thunderbolts are all Marvel. They just aren't the "main" superhero groups. Thunderbolts were actually the Masters of Evil reinventing themselves as "psuedo-heroes". Squadron Supreme is sort of an alternate reality's version of the Avengers (though they are completely different, just similar abilities).
