Recommended Posts

Due to family stuff, finalization of the Round of 16 matches will be delayed until tomorrow morning.

 

Sorry for any inconvenience.

Okay, it's been a crazy couple of days at the Pariah household. Nothing serious, just some minor illnesses that knocked the stuffing out of me and the rest of the family. But we're better now, mostly.

 

Anyway, we now have results for the Round of 16 matches. It will probably be Monday before I'm able to get the next round posted, but let me give you a preview of what you'll see:

 

Nightwing vs. Luke Cage!

 

Green Arrow vs. Huntress!

 

Black Canary vs. Daredevil!

 

Batman vs. Iron Fist!

 

Stay tuned!

Thank you all for your patience. The Quarterfinal matches in the Street Level Tournament of Heroes are now available for voting. We have four very intriguing matchups, so let's hear what you think!

We could have Green Arrow vs Black Canary. Oh dear.

 

The whims of fate would have to be very whimmy indeed to make that happen.  If only Confessor had pulled off an upset against Batman...

Coming soon: The Finals (Batman vs. Green Arrow) and the Bronze Medal; match (Black Canary vs. Luke Cage)!

Anyway, I'm now on Spring Recess until April 3rd.  The Tournament of Heroes will take a break until that time as well.  Once I'm back, we'll start qualifying voting for the Open Class Tournament of Heroes.

I'll post the Open Class Qualifying / Seeding Poll sometime in the next 48 hours. There are quite a few more nominated characters in this group, IIRC, so we may start with 28 characters, with only the Top Four getting an opening round bye.

Mainly because it's four more matches I'd have to set up for the first round.

 

If there is sufficient outcry, I'll think about 32. Maybe.

Okay, I'm almost ready to start posting matches for the First Round of the Tournament of Heroes Open Class. But first, we have some new venues to look at!

 

  • El Monfuego
  • Bluewater Oasis
  • Temple of the Ancient Winds
  • Moraine Valley 
  • Gator Bay
  • Eden Island

 

Click here to read about these new venues, as well as all of the old ones.

 

Matches to be posted later today...with a twist. Won't that be fun?

All right, as we prepare to begin the Open Class Tournament of Heroes, there is one small administrative change to announce: The heroes will be divided into four Regionals, with the winner of each Regional advancing to the Semifinals.

 

I will announce and post the first of these four Regionals today, the second tomorrow, the third on Wednesday, and the fourth on Thursday.  Voting for each regional will last ~48 hours (so voting on today's Regional will close on Wednesday, etc.). Next week, I'll run the next rounds concurrently in some fashion.

 

 

Now, let me introduce today's heroes in the Red Regional, from #8 to #1 (spoilered for lots of pictures):

 

 

 

 

#8 seed: Hawkman!

Later today, I will be posting matchups in the White Regional.  This Regional is on the same side of the bracket, so the winners of Red and White will face off in the Semifinals.

 

Without further ado, here are our heroes! (Spoilered for lots of pics.)

 

 

 

#8 seed: Shadow Lass!

 

W8%20Shadow%20Lass_zpsc9pupg8p.png

 

 

#7 seed:  Ant-Man (Henry Pym)!

 

W7%20Ant%20Man_zpshinifgv6.png

 

 

#6 seed:  Winged Victory!

 

W6%20Winged%20Victory_zpsvtlzwl3x.png

 

 

#5 seed: Zatanna!

 

W5%20Zatanna_zpsky9dtcho.png

 

 

#4 seed: Colossus!

 

W4%20Colossus_zpsmscrjjbj.png

 

 

#3 seed:  Human Torch!

 

W3%20Human%20Torch_zpsxomupljz.png

 

 

#2 seed:  Big Barda!

 

W2%20Big%20Barda_zpsma4rzmlm.png

 

 

#1 seed: Power Girl!

 

W1%20Power%20Girl_zpsef9ejs5u.png

 

 

 

 

Just a personal note: This group of pictures was really challenging. It was really hard to find good pics for some of these characters. Every Power Girl picture was more ludicrous than the last. Colossus is too wide for the format in most of the pictures I found. There are almost no good pictures of Winged Victory that do not also include The Confessor and/or Samaritan.  And I'm still not thrilled with the picture I have for Barda, but most of the good ones also have Scott. >le sigh< The Commissioner's life is fraught with trials, I suppose.

 

Anyway, I'll post the matches this afternoon. See you all then!
