I am on the line here, I'd like these two combatants to display their knowledge of their teams before i vote.

ScarletSpider
I'm really on the fence here, I'll have to see more before I decide. It's so botherable.

Nataku8188
We shouldnt actually use the polls, it should be up to the contestants in the tournament, so people like wolverine 8888 dont get to vote.

crazyspinz
i have an idea

norrin radd

crazyspinz
how bout only the two team makers can argue bacl and fourth for like 3 posts each for each level (herald, meta etc) then every one can vote on who they think argued there point

norrin radd

crazyspinz
agreed

crazyspinz
so are u gonna use my idea

Krissy Von Doom
I'm first? Okay, can I have a bit of time to think about the match ups, I gotta familiarise myself with the opposing characters.

crazyspinz
but my idea, its soo good, i dont want it to go unnoticed, where is eva when u need her...

crazyspinz
i also thought that we would go one level at a time for the battles, it would make a little more sense...

Krissy Von Doom
I like crazyspinz's idea. Can we get confirmation whether that's how it's going to work? Just one other thing, I just read the rules again and it said teams start on opposite sides of the battlefield, so when the battle starts does that mean a herald level character can immediately KO and the opposing side's street-level characters?

crazyspinz
yes yes i am a genius i will be signing autographs later

Evangel94
The poll determines the winner in the end. I might get rid of the poll in the next round though. Whoever has the most votes after a 24 hour period wins. I expect all participants in the tournament to vote.

How the battle goes is up for you to decide.

ScarletSpider
I have cast my vote, but I would like the two contestants to post their theories/strategies on why the would win. I shall then elect to discourse on my take of events if needed.

Krissy Von Doom
Just a little write-up on how Quasar would go against Thor. This level is probably the most lopsided of the bunch because Thor is really the toughest in the MU. Q would have a better chance against anyone but I'll debate anyway.

Point 1: Remember during the Infinity War when the Earth heroes confronted the Infinity Watch on some planet? Before the big brouhaha, Quasar encased the Infinity Watch in a Q-bubble in order to figure things out. All the Earth powerhouses (Hulk, Thing, Wonderman, Strong Guy, Sasquatch) started hammering on it, but it had little or no effect - imagine a field like that around Thor.

Point 2: During the beginning of the Infinity Gauntlet story, Thanos confronted Quasar to see how much of a threat the current Protector of the Universe was. What happened? The Q-bands started draining the Infinity Gauntlet which stunned Thanos. Remember, that was the full-powered Thanos, not the depowered version in the battle against the Earth heroes.

Point 3: Maneuverability. Quasar has the advantage in flight whereas Thor gets pulled by the hammer. I'm not sure about his upper limit within the atmosphere but Ikaris had trouble keeping up with him.

Point 4: Quasar has fought four former Protectors of the Universe and won. That's four herald level characters with much more experience than him.

Point 5: Quantum Armour. Without the armour, Thor will be able to KO Quasar with one hit but Quasar always wears the Q-armour in battles.

Point 6: Cosmic Awareness. Granted to all Protectors.

In conclusion, Quasar would run circles around Thor, hitting him with Q-Blasts and every construct he could think of. Granted, Thor would get some punches in but the Q-armour would negate the effects of those punches. Then, once Thor is distracted enough, Q would trap him in a nigh-unbreakable Quantum-vice which effectively takes him out of the fight (how would Thor break free if Hulk couldn't even dent it?) and about three seconds away from being KO'd by a concentrated Q-blast.....temporarily (then Thor would get a mad on).

ScarletSpider
Also, remember that Quasar harnessed and held the essence of Ego the living planet! This is a feat that Silver Surfer admitted, would have killed him, so the guy's got endurance out that wazoo.

Krissy Von Doom
I probably should have chosen a better team-mate for Gideon seeing as he can't copy magical powers. In this battle, Gideon can mimic the strength and powers of both Thing and Colossus, effectively stalemating either one of them while Modred creates havoc using his elemental and mystical powers. Modred commands the book of Darkhold so every dark spell stored in the book - from transmutation to teleportation, illusions, conjuration to countless others. In addition to being just a step below Dr Strange, Modred controls the four elements. How would two individuals who rely solely on brute force contend with one who has a wide variation in attacks and defences? Should Modred want to end the fight quickly, the crimson bands would hold Thing and Colossus in place while Gideon wails on them. I'm a little bit more confident in this match-up than the previous one.

Krissy in the lead with a 4 to 2 vote.

Evangel94
Looks like it's 4 to 3 now

Krissy Von Doom
5-3! Yay!

crazyspinz
umm eva, i thought that it was going to be on thread per level, so the metas and the heralds wont be in the same battle, i would suggest that for the next round..

crazyspinz
and snake eyes hasnt commented yet

Wynndar
I def think Stick and Shang Chi would trash their counterparts blade and daredevil...stick and shang chi are basically the best martial artists in marvel...However, if you put Thing, Thor and Colossus together, they r stomping everyone

crazyspinz
this is why this tourny wont work unless there are differant matches for differant levels

Nataku8188
And the fact that we can have random fanboys voting based only on favorites rather then actual facts.

crazyspinz
not only facts, but how well the people know there team. i messaged eva about this matter already, hopefully she will listen

Evangel94
lol, there isn't a concern. The matches are based on class. Your supposed to imagine what happens and vote based on what you think. Also, this thread is open everyone and all votes count. (although i might get rid of the poll)

If you want to convince others, write a strategy write up PM me with it. I'll post it when i post the battles.

Evangel94
That would be extremely long and tiring. People vote based on what team you have. It's completely open to everyone.

Thread per level? Ddn't you read what i wrote initially when i was describing the tournament?

SnakeEyes
As for my opinion, i still think my team could win. Blade has an arsenal that could take down Stick and Shang-chi, not to mention accelerated healing factor, speed, stamina, and strength. Add daredevil and that guarentees a victory for the street level. Thor alone could take most of the group after a very tough and brutal battle. Gideon can replicate abilities, but i am not sure how long that takes him. If he can do it instantly, i can see him stalemating with Thing or Colossus. Spiderman could take Firestar using speed and agility. Her microwave energy is fatal to normal humans, but Spiderman could use his speedy advantages to overcome her, and if he did manage to get hit, he could recover. Spidermans and spiderwomans stats outclass namorita by far.
