Hey Yo,

Some of you might have seen the Batman Elimination games that Doc Ock started and that I have since taken over. Basically, there's a list of Batman-themed choices and you vote until there's one left. They're pretty fun and a good, non-spam way to up that post count. :up:

In order to generate ideas for future rounds, this thread is for everyone to post suggestions for themes and choices they'd be interested in. Feel free to make any suggestion, but the theme Round 40 - should be expansive enough so that we can get at least 10 choices.

Up to this point, we've had the following rounds (winners noted in parentheses):

Round 1 - Villains From the Comics (The Joker)
Round 2 - Supporting Characters (Cassandra Cain)
Round 3 - Graphic Novels/Trade Paperbacks (The Long Halloween)
Round 4 - Batman Interpretations (Batman: The Animated Series Batman)
Round 5 - Costumes (Batman Begins Version)
Round 6 - Batman on Screen (Batman: The Animated Series)

Round 9 - Writers (Denny O'Neil)
Round 10 - Women of Batman (Harley Quinn)
Round 11 - Batmobiles (Batman: The Animated Series Batmobile)
Round 12 - Live Actions Villains (Liam Neeson as Ra's al Ghul)
Round 13 - Artists (Tim Sale)

Round 23 - Most Significant Moment (Bane Breaking Batman's Back)
Round 24 - Personal Contributions to the Mythos (Bruce Timm/Paul Dini/Kevin Conroy)
Round 25 - Notable Quotes (From Batman Begins: "People need dramatic examples...")
Round 26 - Villains From Batman: The Animated Series, Part 2 (The Phantasm/Andrea Beaumont)

Have at it. :batman:
 
I was thinking of doing his vehicles or his gadgets.But I don't think he has that huge a variety of either to merit their own round....
 
Haha, I e-mailed Doc Ock about this earlier and he told me Mister J would do one; awesome.

We can get some ideas from the threads 100% similar to this one in Superman World and Spidey-World and stuff...heck in Spidey-World they are already up to Round 20.

Hello,

Since many of you are familiar with Quentin Beck's Spider-Man Elimination Game, and since he's always asking for suggestions for a new round, I figured a Suggestion Box Thread might be a good idea.

Here are the previous games done...

Round 1: Villains
Round 2: Grade B Villains
Round 3: Goblins
Round 4: Peter's Family and Friends
Round 5: Villains named after Animals
Round 6: Villain Teams
Round 7: Allies
Round 8: Allies Part 2
Round 9: Story Arcs
Round 10: Costumes
Round 11: The Final. All top 10 winners battle off.
Round 12: I forgot
Round's 13 to 16 were just random villains and characters.
Round 17: Writers
Round 18: Clones
Round 19: Best Single Story Issue
Round 20: C Listed Supporting Character

:)

Which ones you think would work for Batman ones? Of course small details would have to change to make it work for Bats.
 
Story arcs would be good, or favorite Bat-family comic, best team-up/crossover, supporting bat-cast (nightwing, robin, batgirl,azrael,gordon,alfred,etc..)
 
Since the Batmobile would likely dominate any vehicle list, I had a thought. I just came across this site (http://www.batmobilehistory.com/index.html). It's a pretty comprehensive listing of nearly every Batmobile ever, including images. We could get a list of the most recognizable ones (through comics, TV, movies). Just through TV or movies, that's a list of about 8 or so. Tossing in a few comic versions could round the list out.

For another round, there are other vehicles (Batplane, Bat-gyro, Batboat, etc.) that a list of around 10 could be made. Those might harder to dig up some pictures on.

Gadgets is a bit trickier. The variety is there, but I'm not sure how feasible they are. I'm listing these out of the Batman Ultimate Guide. I'm sure there are probably others.

1. Grapnel
2. Bat-Cuffs
3. Gas Pellets
4. Bat-Grenades
5. Bat-Bolas
6. Mini-Batarang (shuriken)
7. In-Flight Steerable Batarang
8. Hard Impact Batarang
9. Cutting Batarang
10. Spinning Batarang

Suggestions, additions or improvements to any of these are appreciated.
 
Do best movie version villians.

But ofcouse Arnold's Freeze would win
 
I just got a good idea.

This could be like sort of in the system the X-Men Elimination rounds goes by...in parts:

We could choose like a certain number (not too high) of villains choose which Graphic Novel was their best role. After the end of each part we have one huge final round where each go against eachother.

Ex:
One round- (Obviously have several against eachother at once)
Scarecrow in As the Crow Flies Vs. Scarecrow in Haunted Knight
Final round- (Maybe the same or have semi-finals and then have final with one versus the other)
Scarecrow in Haunted Knight Vs. Two-Face in The Long Halloween

Get it?

I think something like that would be really cool. If you need better explaining of what I am talking about just ask..I know I do not always explain stuff clearly.

Oh I like this idea.If we only had pics to go with them,like with the Batman interpretations,then that would be great :up:
 
These are the best complete scans I could get; the book is way oversized. Clicking on the thumbnails gives a good full-size view of the pages if the larger pics aren't visible enough. There are a few on there I didn't list beforehand (Blow Gun, Aerosol Spray) but the whole page is fair game.

 
Best Bat-Chick;

Batgirl (original)
Batgirl II (Cassie)
Huntress
Oracle
Spoiler
Montoya
Catwoman
Black Canary
Batwoman (Pre-Crisis)
Batgirl (Pre-Crisis)

Ooh, me likes. I say that one should be the next one. Even if you try to say "so and so will win cause of popularity" you are right but in this case there are several ones like that. Very good choice man. :up:
 
Good stuff, Captain Stacy. :up:

That gave me an idea for Girlfriends/Love Interests

Julie Madison
Silver St. Cloud
Vesper Fairchild
Vicki Vale
Talia al Ghul
Selina Kyle
Shondra Kinsolving
Kathy Kane
Sasha Bordeaux
Pamela Isley (I know...it's primarily phermone-induced, but there's some tension there and I needed a 10th.)

This is a good suggestion too!

Any others?
 
Villains from the 1966 film and the theatrical releases:

The Joker (Cesar Romero)
The Penguin (Burgess Meredith)
Catwoman (Lee Meriwether)
The Riddler (Frank Gorshin)
Max Shreck (Christopher Walken)
Bane (Jeep Swenson)
Carmine Falcone (Tom Wilkinson)
Victor Zsasz (Tim Booth)

The Joker (Jack Nicholson)
The Penguin (Danny Devito)
Catwoman (Michelle Pfeiffer)
Two-Face (Tommy Lee Jones)
The Riddler (Jim Carrey)
Mr. Freeze (Arnold Schwarzenegger)
Poison Ivy (Uma Thurman)
Ra's al Ghul (Liam Neeson)
The Scarecrow (Cillian Murphy)

I split them into groups (66 movie/lesser villains, major villains) in case we wanted to make two shorter rounds instead of a round with 17 choices.
 
Funny, I was thinking about watching that movie later on today.
 
That movie kicks ass.
"Some days you just can't get rid of a bomb!"
 
I like it cause it is a classic but man is Adam West's acting bad as Batman. Lol the character has evolved so much since that movie and era.

Carmine Falcone (Tom Wilkinson)
Ra's al Ghul (Liam Neeson)
The Scarecrow (Cillian Murphy)

Add Bane, Zsasz, and voila!

Then do TAS characters
 
Why Zsasz? I don't get what is so great about him. I know he was in Begins but still.
 
Villains from the Animated Series:

Bane
Catwoman
Clayface
The Joker
Killer Croc
The Mad Hatter
Man-Bat
Mr. Freeze
The Penguin
Poison Ivy
Ra's al Ghul
The Riddler
The Scarecrow
Two-Face
The Ventriloquist & Mr. Scarface


The Clock King (Temple Fugate)
Firefly
Harley Quinn
Hugo Strange
The Judge
Kyodai Ken (Ninja)
Lyle Bolton (Lock-Up)
Mary Louise Dahl (Baby Doll)
The Phantasm (Andrea Beaumont)
Professor Milo
Red Claw
Roland Daggett
Rupert Thorne
Talia al Ghul
Tony Zucco

There may be a couple of others. There's like 30 of them as is. We could break them up by status/importance or something or just eliminate some flat out. It seems like we could get some good games out of the lesser characters though.

I threw him in there just to be holistic. We can eliminate or split choices up when we decide what theme we want for that round.

That is a huge list. :eek: Someone did their homework. :up:

And with that list we could do what I proposed earlier about semi-final rounds and what not but change it up or something.
