KMC's Alpha Black Dude
This thread is for us, as a community, to develop a tier system for the expanded battle options here in the versus forum (until a sub-forum can be created).
Similar to the comic book character tier system. This will give us a rough estimation of which characters are "peers" to their "mainstream" comic book counterparts, and will help to determine what constitutes a viable mixed genre match up for this forum.
This will be an open forum, however, please keep this constructive. We all have opinions and the right to express them, but no unwarranted character bashing, or insulting of one another, will be tolerated.
The rules are the same general rules as the comic tier system
1. Any changes made, please try to bold them to point them out to others.
2. Alphabetize the list as needed.
3. Discussion should take place before a change, and at least 2-3 others (who are relatively "unbiased" and not huge fans of a particular character) should agree with you before an official change takes place.
4. I can't update the Master List every day. Be patient, and don't whine to me about changes that need edited in.
5. If you can't get support for a proposed change, let it drop once you've made your case.
6. Have fun and enjoy. This list obviously isn't perfect, but it will end up being one of the better indicators of power anywhere by the time it's refined and added to.
1. This list is based off of total "power" in all its forms. Individual matchups might mean that someone in a lower tier could beat someone in a higher tier, but we're basing the list on general power levels, not individual matchups.
