Elite Eight of Jessi's 9th Annual March Madness: Comic Book/Graphic Novel Characters

Ouch. That round was tough, and so many of the races were SO close.

I just want to take this opportunity to say auf wiedersehen to my Love Kurt Wagner, aka Nightcrawler. You made it further than I thought, but ultimately you bowed out and let your Love, Ororo go through. I'm sorry that I had to match you two up against each other. I will always love you Kurt. Always.

Ahem, anyway. Here we are at the Elite Eight. (oh, and yes, a Raccoon just beat out a wolverine)

Let's get ready to RUMBLE!!!!

You can vote for all the match-ups or just a few, it doesn't matter.

    Aaron Nicholson I can't believe Batman, Wolverine, and Captain Marvel didn't make it to the elite eight. Although it's understandable that Carol hasn't yet achieved critical mass mass consciousness (aka movie). Batman and Wolverine, though...what happened??
    1. Superman
    2. Storm
    Bottom Half
    1. Captain America
    2. Wonder Woman ...Spider-man has been a favorite character since I was ten, but I feel like this is WW's time.

Sweet Sixteen of Jessi's 9th Annual March Madness: Comic Book/Graphic Novel Characters


The ground shook with the battles from The Second Round. Heroes fell. Juggarnauts of the industry were sent away.
Things might be getting easier now, but who knows, it depends on how you vote. Personally, I do not know how I want to vote at the very bottom of the bracket.
So for those of you who would like to participate, I will post the first round: 8 match-ups, and you all can vote in each match-up to see who goes to the next round!

Second Round of Jessi's 9th Annual March Madness: Comic Book/Graphic Novel Characters

Whoa, there were some MIGHTY battles in the first round, and some surprise defeats. Most notably: Iron Man got first rounded by Storm. Now, I think this is the right decision, but I’m sure others will be shocked. There were some really, really tight races, and some real amazing figures have to bow out. The most hard fought were between Logan and The Flash, Hulk vs. Prof. X, and Wonder Woman vs. Black Panther. You’ll have to see below who won!
Also, talk about two heavy hitting second round match ups at the very top and the very bottom of the bracket. Have fun!!

So for those of you who would like to participate, I will post the first round: 16 match-ups, and you all can vote in each match-up to see who goes to the next round!
You can vote for all the match-ups or just a few, it doesn't matter.

    3. Aquaman (Aquaman) - Down with Tank Girl
    4. Magneto (X-Men) - Always loved him
    5. Storm (X-Men) - Storm wouldn't even break a sweat
    6. Silver Surfer (Fantastic Four) - Kurt can only BAMF! for so long.
    7. Jean Grey (X-Men) - Jean's got this
    8. Kitty Pryde (X-Men) - Joker is cool but highly overrated

    Bottom Half
    1. Captain America / Steve Rogers (Captain America) - Sorry, but Cap is a legend
    2. Green Lantern/ Hal Jordan (Green Lantern) - Hal Jordan is the man
    3. Rocket Racoon (Guardians of the Galaxy) - This guy has too big of an arsenal
    4. John Constantine (Constantine) - Come on, Constantine would transport Logan to a Hell-like dimension and he would fry. About Wolverine? (see Kitty Pryde vs. Joker)
    5. Spider Man (The Amazing Spider-Man) - I would pay good money to see this book... the real winner would be the reader
    6. Doctor Strange (Strange Tales) - (see Wolverine vs John Constantine)
    7. The Hulk / Bruce Banner (Incredible Hulk) - I mean C'mon!
    8. Wonder Woman ( Wonder Woman) Batman is another highly overrated character. A fully ticked off Diana would squash Bruce... Sorry Bat fans.

    JoshandTerra Collier 1. Superman- awesome matchup but Supes wins because of his moral character and not his super powers. Every other hero looks up to him for a reason.
    2. Capt. Marvel
    3. Aquaman
    4. Magneto- one of the greatest characters ever
    5. Storm - she is the greatest Marvel heroine IMO.
    6. Nightcrawer- optimistic, swashbuckling man-of-faith.
    7. Jean Grey
    8. Joker- hall of fame evil

    1. Capt. America- see Superman comments
    2. Green Lantern
    3. Rocket Racoon
    4. Wolverine
    5. Spider Man
    6. Dr. Strange
    7. Oracle- Such an amazing character. Took tragedy and used it to become a more crucial character to the super hero community than Batgirl ever was.
    8. Wonder Woman- this was so hard. Not hating on Batman. This easily could have gone different if he was up against another hero. This choice was made by the father in me and what WW has meant to little girls for 75 years.

Jessi's 9th Annual March Madness: Comic Book and Graphic Novel Characters

I keep telling myself these past few years that I am just not going to do March Madness this year. But every March 1st that rolls around, I just HAVE to continue on with this (albeit dying) tradition!

So this year, I’m going nerd style. Best Comic Book/Graphic Novel Characters. Now, here’s the thing, I’m no newbie at comic books or graphic novels, but I am by no means the most educated fan-boy/fan-girl in my sphere of family and friends. So, I understand that there are many different universes and time lines within each of these stories. I understand that. And I understand that I might “mess something up” in terms of which link I chose or which universe I chose. But give me a break, don’t nitpick, this is actually pretty hard to make these brackets. And, as always, there will be some characters that you think should be on here but aren’t. Well, I’m the Bracket Master and this is my bracket. If I haven’t read the comic or graphic novel, it didn’t get on here. Also, our tastes might be different.

As far as the match ups go, it is completely UP TO YOU who you want to see make it to the next round. You can do the classic, who would win in a fight? Or you can do the “I loved this one as a kid!”, or you can do whichever one has the better character arch, better story, or that you always saw Black Widow as your Spirit Animal…or maybe, even though this is source material based, you just really like Sebastian Stan in the movies so you want to see the Winter Soldier go through. It makes no difference to me! Just enjoy!!!

Also, I kinda went with seeds, but after a while it got too hard. So don't give me grief if you think I ranked a great character too low and the match ups are too hard at the beginning of the tourney.

So for those of you who would like to participate, I will post the first round: 32 match-ups, and you all can vote in each match-up to see who goes to the next round!
You can vote for all the match-ups or just a few, it doesn't matter.

**PS: For those who have yet to do this, just copy/paste the list and delete the one you don't want. Easier than scrolling up and down.
